Learning takes place everyday, in a series of incidental scenarios. Our goal at Sunflower is to incorporate those accidental moments into intentional teachable opportunities; opportunities for exploration and discovery.
Sunflower Pre-kindergarten's philosophy is based on the Reggio Emilia approach to learning.
The Reggio Emilia approach, created by Loris Malaguzzi, views the learning process as ongoing and relationship driven. Children are shaped by their relationships with family, peers, teachers and their environment.

Meet Your Teachers
Your child's first teacher is...YOU!
Since you know your child best I will be relying on your expertise.
Your partnership is crucial to your child's success.
Your child's second teacher is me, Ms. Jen.
I am a teacher, certified in general and special education from birth through grade 6. My passion is early childhood!
I will do my very best to spark your child's natural curiosity through engaging inquiries.
Your child's third teacher is the environment.
This is an important component in your child's learning because it is often the catalyst for curiosity and incidental learning. When your child is at Sunflower the environment inside the classroom, as well as the environment in our outdoor classroom, will be carefully curated to meet the needs and spark the interests of your child.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Miss Jen is a true professional disguised as every child's mom. She does not simply 'watch your child' but cares for the physical, social, emotional and pre educational needs of the littles in her charge. Jen partners with parents so that the transition to daycare is hardly felt...for either...as no detail is ignored. My daughters knew the same level of care and love that they felt at home with Miss Jen. Sunflower Pre-kindergarten is the only choice.
