Russian Day Care Bay Area
Our main mission is to create a home-like, loving, and caring environment for your children, which is essential for their development at an early age. Learning is also a very important focus in Sunflower Family Child Care.
Children not only become aware of the world around them but also learn values and communication skills. Because we try to recreate a home environment in our childcare learning and playing becomes very fun and relaxing for children.
On June 15, 2020, Sunflower Child Development Center opened its doors and welcomed 35 Bay Area children and their families. With beautiful new classrooms filled with stimulating and age-appropriate toys, our incredible teachers were ready to provide a loving atmosphere that nurtures creativity, learning, and development in a safe and clean environment. We are proud to serve homemade organic food prepared fresh in our kitchen and to offer a delightful outdoor space and playground for the children.
In 2021 Sunflower celebrated its 10th anniversary, and we are immensely proud of all we have accomplished.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT THE NEXT TEN YEARS WILL BRING AND MEETING ALL THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES THAT WILL BE A PART OF OUR FUTURE!
