We are blessed with a wonderful, loving
staff whose average time working with with Sunny Day Care children
is now over eight years. And, it is also a major reason why over
sixty families have entrusted their children to Sunny Day from
their early, infant years through our Montessori program. Families
of one, two, three and even four children have been with Sunny Day
from the oldest being born until the youngest goes off to first
grade. Families are what we are all about!

Before founding Sunny Day Care with a
friend in 1992, Sue worked as a System's Analyst for Ford Motor
Credit Co. for ten years until she had her second child. Sue took
training from the Michigan Montessori Teacher Education Center and
became a certified Early Childhood Montessori teacher. Sue has two
grown children, Mr. Joe and Miss Megan, who started out as toddlers
and have worked with the children on and off for years. And her
husband, Mr. Mike, or as the kids call him, Mr. Noodle, helps out
with all the maintenance. Now running the business on her own, Miss
Sue often sneaks out of the office and can be found in the Infant
and Toddler Rooms playing with the children!
Infant Room and 1-Year Old
From six weeks through strong walking
(around 18 months), the infant room and the 1's Room have a 3:1
ratio. The "best mom besides mom" philosophy helps our new moms go
off to work knowing their baby will be loved all day long (but many
still leave in tears the first few days). All of our infant
teachers are moms and treat each baby exactly how they would have
wanted their own baby taken care of. Lots of love to go

The children in our Montessori
Preschool rooms range from 2 1/2 years through 6 years. Our goals
are to develop a positive attitude, self-confidence and
independence, while fostering curiosity, initiative, persistence,
security and sense of order. By working with the senses, we are
helping develop sensory-motor skills, ability to discriminate and
judge, yet encouraging social development and creative intelligence
and imagination. We want the children to have fun while learning in
a setting of basic ground rules.
