My 5 year-old son has been attending Little Sunbeams since he was 1 1/2. I drop him off each morning and know that he will be well tended to and loved. I am so happy that we have a home at Little Sunbeams. We have made great relationships with the other families and the teachers. At each step of his development I can easily say that he was/is in a safe, age-appropriate, caring and inviting place for hands-on-learning and growth. He loves to go to school (Little Sunbeams) and has a variety of friends from Chef John, Brennan in the morning, the Dance teacher on Thursday, Tracey B, Pastor Greg and the Scott in Tuesday chapel, all the teachers, and of course his classmates - all who help form this rich environment.In the past 4 years the center has had changes in staff, as do all business, but I can honestly say that every person who has contact with us or with my son truly has his and our best interest at heart. Renee, the Director, and various teachers throughout our tenure have visited with us to be sure that we are all on the same page. If it is working together on potty training, sitting still in circle time, or how to encourage writing/fine motor skills or it is important that we are all working together for our children's development. Bumps, bruises and spills are inevitable and my experience has been that the staff err on the side of caution and often phone to ensure that a parent is properly notified of anything out of the norm while immediately tending to the child. There is always a written form documenting the incident.We have brought various concerns - either about something with my child or policies at the center- to Renee and/or to our teacher and have felt that we are heard and that we are working together to help my child be both a good little person and developmentally sound. Praise and love are apparent everywhere, but I also appreciate the boundaries and consequences when they are needed. We just received our acceptance letter from Manzano Day School for Kindergarten next year and are sad to be leaving Little Sunbeams in August, but very excited to know that he will be well-prepared for his next chapter in life.
I would just like to express, on behalf of myself and my son, Keyon' Dre Tabiha, that we are very happy with the care that my son receives from A HOME AWAY FROM HOME DAYCARE. He has been a part of the family daycare since infancy,he is now 5 yrs old. He has really progressed with his learning skills and has learned to be a very respectful little boy. We are very thankful and appreciate the family ,our family. They are very professional and are wonderful caretakers. I never worry about my sons safety. All in all I would be refer anyone and everyone in need of childcare to ,"A Home Away From Home Daycare." Thank you, sincerrly Rachael T

I've been bringing my daughter to Little sunshine for about a year now and she loves it. The people there are friendly, very safe/clean environment, they prepare healthy home cooked meals there for the children, child: caregiver ratio is low, very reasonably priced,the kids have plenty of time to play outside in a nice shaded backyard and many of the caregivers are bi lingual, so my daughter is picking up spanish quickly. It's just a really cute and homey place. I highly recommend it.
