Exclusive Curriculum

Our advanced curriculum and Kindergarten readiness program are the hallmark of our preschool. A Sunny Start Preschool students graduate our program knowing how to read, write, add, subtract, and count to 100! While we are proud of our reputation of preparing children in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics, there is so much more to our curriculum. Below you will find just a few of our unique programs, which are included at no extra charge. For more information by age level, please visit our Programs pages.

S.T.E.A.M. – S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. We believe that this component is essential to building out-of-the-box thinkers!

  • Science – Our students engage in weekly science projects and sensory activities, even at the infant level! These experiences engage the senses and promote curiosity.
  • Daycare STEM students assembling legosTechnology – Our school is equipped with a Computer Lab for ages 3 and up. We have developed a partnership with ABC Mouse to provide our students with a virtual classroom which is available both at home and at school. Additionally, each class is equipped with iPad technology to provide flashcards and educational games as needed.
  • Engineering – We provide our students with project based opportunities to identify problems, propose solutions, engage in planning, and apply construction techniques.
  • Art – Engineering is impossible without design! Through the incorporation of the Creative Curriculum, we plan activities that encourage open ended drawing, painting, and sculpting.
  • Math – At A Sunny Start Preschool, we understand that mathematical thinking evolves from the use of concrete objects such as manipulatives. Children are encouraged daily to develop representations of concepts such as computation, measurement, and statistics.

At our school, we believe that each child should be encouraged to reach their maximum potential. We realize that children develop at different times and have different needs.

For this reason, we incorporate formal assessments into our program three times a year for students age 2 and up. These assessments are based on observation and include knowledge of concepts, development of skills, and social emotional progress.

Using this information, our teachers are able to tailor small group activities to meet the needs of our students. We work in small groups to help children build confidence and learn at their own pace.

Let’s Move child care health and fitness program in KendallLet’s Move!

Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.

Combining comprehensive strategies with common sense, Let’s Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years.

At A Sunny Start Preschool, we do this by providing healthier foods and helping kids become more physically active. We plan outdoor and gross motor activities that promote health, wellness, and physical strength.

Farm to Preschool

Farm to Preschool Montessori activityFarm to Preschool is a natural expansion of the national farm to school model and encompasses a wide range of programs and activities.  Farm to Preschool serves the full spectrum of child care delivery: preschools, Head Start, center-based, and family home care facilities.

Its goals include:  influencing the eating habits of young children while their preferences are forming; creating healthy lifestyles through good nutrition and experiential opportunities; and ultimately influencing policies to address the childhood obesity epidemic through a local food lens.

At A Sunny Start Preschool, we incorporate a “Vegetable of the Month” into our weekly lesson planning. The students taste, discover, analyze, and experience vegetables that are in season and are Fresh from Florida.

Miami’s best character development programCommunity and Character

Learning goes beyond academics at A Sunny Start Preschool. It is our desire to instill a sense of community, appreciation, and manners in our students.

To do so, we have made a commitment to Community Service at our preschool. Our families participate in monthly activities such as toy drives, food drives, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, among others. We are big believers in the idea that our children have been blessed beyond our wildest dreams. We consider it a blessing to be able to give back.

Likewise, we love to recognize our students who go above and beyond following the classroom rules. Our teachers do an excellent job of teaching our students about character traits such as honesty, loyalty, generosity, kindness, and patience. We have a weekly tradition of recognizing these children as our Students of the Week. You can see their pictures proudly displayed on our Facebook Page each Friday afternoon!

Testimonial:

Kids playing on a playground
I would like to extend my gratitude to A Sunny Start Preschool for the amazing impact they have had on my children’s lives. Both of my sons attended A Sunny Start Preschool from the time they were very young. My oldest son is a proud graduate who received top marks in Kindergarten thanks to the academic preparation he received in the preschool. The teachers provide a great environment where my sons feel loved and welcome each time they walk through the door. The administration continues to make positive changes that propel the school into the future and make the school standout above the rest. Thank you to A Sunny Start Preschool for everything you have done for my family!

Parent Testimonials

  • My daughter graduated from the school this year and started Kindergarten. Going into her fourth week of her big transition, her teachers informed me that she had an outstanding base from her preschool and is reading first grade level! A Sunny Start Preschool prepared my little girl in a spectacular way! The staff is very professional and family oriented not to mention superb state of the art facility. Needless to say I highly recommend the school!

    - Rocky, Dad of Natalia
  • I love love love this preschool/daycare! Very caring and loving staff and my oldest son loves going every day! I am so excited my twins also started a few months ago, they are so happy here as well. The teachers here are amazing! They genuinely care about the students and the woman in charge of curriculum for the school is always looking for new and great ways to teach the kids. I have 3 children at this school and could not be happier.

    – Samantha T. – Mom of Mason, Logan, and Olivia
  • My grandchildren have all attended A Sunny Start Preschool and this was the only preschool they attended. Three of the four are already in Elementary School and thanks to the foundation that they developed in this school, they are students with high grades. Thank you very much to all the teachers who are always attentive and patient with children. The quality of academics that children receive at this school is evident in their success.

    - Liliana, grandmother of Xavier, Jocey, Zander, and Amanda
  • I would recommend this school to any parent searching for a preschool with an excellent curriculum. My daughter is 7 years old and attended this preschool. After graduating from Pre K she tested advanced at her current Charter elementary school. Her teachers were impressed at her knowledge and how advanced her reading was. This school helped her read and went over all the subjects she needed to prepare her for Elementary. She recently tested for gifted this year by MDCPS. This was all due to the foundation she received here. The teachers are amazing and caring. Two of my friends that had their children here also tested for gifted. I am so happy with the school, the curriculum, the teachers, and the staff and now my son currently attends A Sunny Start Preschool. I would not go anywhere else.

    - Barbie, mom of Enzo and Sophia
  • I'm happy to have found this place. The attention is the best. The teachers are the best. My children learn something new every day. I wholeheartedly say to you that every child that goes through this program comes out a winner!

    – Gladys M, Mom of Denisse and Daniela
  • I recommended A Sunny Start Preschool to all whom have children from birth to 6 & more if they would take older.  I am a proud mother of very bright and advanced children thanks to the tutelage of Teacher Carmen, Milly, Angela, & Sofia. As you can see I have had an experience with every level of teacher in the school. I have a Kindergarten boy which I am proud to say is in K- 1 in his school. For those who do not know what K-1, this is where Kindergarten students are also being taught with 1st graders. My four year old is still at A Sunny Start Preschool and she is extremely bright. The curriculum in her class is incredibly advanced and even though I hate homework she is always excited and eager to do it. She can identify words and knows her numbers this also has to do with the fact she loves her school. All this and she has not yet started VPK because of her birthday, but she will be starting come this school year. Thank you Jennifer, Carmen, Milly, Angela, Sofia & Tatiana you guys are the best.

    – Gaby, mom of Zander and Amanda
