Our Programs

Infant Daycare (6 weeks - 1 year)

At The Sunshine House of Mint Hill, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your infant is used to receiving at home. In our infant daycare, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules. While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your infant’s interests and development. 

Toddler Daycare (1-3 years)

Our toddler daycare program is designed to respond to this unique stage of development. Your toddler will participate in fun learning activities and creative playtime that stimulates the mind and encourages exploration, while introducing structure and an established routine. When your toddler is developmentally ready to start potty-training, we’ll partner with you to create consistency from school to home. Our toddler daycare program helps your child build invaluable skills, such as language development, fine motor skills, analytical skills, positive self-image, creativity, increased attention span, communication and social integration.

Early Preschool (2-3 years)

At this age, your child is discovering something new each day. Our Early Preschool program is uniquely created to respond to your child’s natural curiosity and interest in exploration, while providing the structure and support your child needs during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool.

Preschool (3-4 years)

Building a solid foundation in the academic skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond is important at this age.
