Sunny Days Nursery School was established by Caughdenoy United Methodist Church in 1983. We provide our community with a Christian-based, educationally sound program which provides for the development of basic concepts, attitude, skills, and individual creativity. Our curriculum is designed to prepare the children for kindergarten socially, spiritually, physically and academically.
Sunny Days Philosophy
Sunny Days Nursery School offers an environment that fosters Christian faith and discipleship. We believe meaningful learning involves active, firsthand experiences and participation. Therefore, we provide for each child an educational experience designed to help him/her grow intellectually, socially, spiritually, emotionally and physically. We maintain a program that is child centered and experience based. We believe play is a young child’s work and natural way of learning. We believe that young children need to experience that they are loved, valued and enjoyed.
Sunny Days recognizes that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration, and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive, and our staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in the children who attend. The purpose of our preschool is to provide an atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual growth and development of the child as a whole.
Our curriculum is literacy based and includes time for sharing, playing, and talking; stories and songs; creative art and craft activities; exposure to shapes, colors, numbers, and letters.
"Sunny Days has wonderful group of teachers and a great director. Whether it be at school or home they are very helpful with questions and advice! We have been coming for two years and glad to have younger children who look forward coming to sunny days in the near future as they feel welcomed and are always greeted with a smile!"
"Our daughter loves going to Sunny Days! She is always excited to see her friends and teachers. She sings us her favorite songs from class, tells us all about the learning activities they do, and is so proud of the projects that she makes in the classroom centers. She is not just learning her letters and numbers; she is also learning the social and behavioral skills that she will need next year in kindergarten. Sunny Days has done a great job of preparing her for school and helping us feel more confident in her ability to make the transition successfully."
