Sunflower Early Learning Academy

Promoting Quality And Diversity In All Programming

Developing Positive Self-Image, And Sense of Independence

Safe Learning Environment, With Highly-Qualified Teachers And Staff

A Good Foundation Starts In The Early Years of Life.

The early years are crucial for the development of a secure emotional attachment and the skills that help children succeed in life. These foundational skills are not only important for a successful transition to school, but also for later academic achievement and social adjustment.  Early foundational learning is critical for a child's later learning. In fact, a strong early learning foundation is the ladder to ensure a future where they can adapt and thrive. One cannot fully discover a child's full potential if one only emphasizes on completing the set curriculum and content.  That’s why SELA understands the importance of learning for the “whole child”.

We also believe that every child needs and deserves the best possible environment to grow in, right from their very first months. For this reason, we only hire excellent teachers and have designed an outstanding curriculum of activities suitable for every age group that we welcome.

We Believe in Academic Foundation, Nourishment of Knowledge, and Future Success of your Child.

To grow best, sunflowers need full sun. They grow best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil with heavy mulch.  Just as sunflowers need sun and fertile earth; children need a foundation, being nourished with knowledge so that they can learn and flourish to the best of their ability and for future success.

SELA believes that encouraging thinking ability in different situations is a key to children’s success. To achieve this, we ensure that the center provides for a safe learning environment, with highly-qualified teachers and staff, to give children and their families the opportunity to gain experiences that will help them grow physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and morally.

 I have never felt anything but love and compassion from the staff there. You are greeted every morning with a smile and each staff member greets your child by name, and when you leave everyone tells you to have a nice day. It's a very welcoming atmosphere.

The owners of this center impressed me as people who are not just running a business, but truly care for the welfare of the children they are entrusted too. It is apparent when not only do the owners, but also the staff, know and greet each child by name, but the parents by name as well. Smiles and hugs abound each morning and evening. 

Kevin A.

The center and all the teachers have always been very warm and caring to our daughter. The owner or a teacher greet us at the door everyday and are genuinely excited to see her when she arrives. She loves going to school and her education is obviously growing. We feel that a lot of her advanced emotional and social development is from this nurturing and learning environment.
