New Local Daycare from a Sunset Park Parent
Wendy Parraga, a Sunset Park mom, has started up a NYS registered family day-care. She has an amazing space with a structured and creative curriculum set-up; you can see it here. Ages 2-4.5 are accepted, and children need to be at least 3/4 of the way to being potty-trained. (I'm guessing that means day-time trained!) Sunflowers Family Day Care opens at 8 AM and has dismissal at 6 PM, so there is a good amount of flexibility. I don't know if there is a "late-pick-up" or "early-drop-off" policy, but one could always ask. The 57th Street location is relatively convenient to the 59th Street express stop for parents who work outside of the neighborhood. See the contact information below.
from Wendy Parraga's message to Sunset Park Parents:
As a mother of an intelligent and very verbally expressive child, I was searching the neighborhood for a suitable daycare or nursery school. i wanted a clean, above-ground space with a backyard, plenty of kid friendly materials, and most importantly caring, nurturing, qualified, energetic teachers with up-to-date teaching practices. Unfortunately, there was no space for my child in the daycare centers I found suitable in the neighborhood. As an education grad student with a career in education, I truly believe the early years are extremely important. I am dedicated to my young son and to young children. I saw a need for early childhood education services in this neighborhood and I knew I was not the only one seeing this need.
If you are interested and would like more information, please visit www.sunflowerslearningfdc.com or call 347-210-1091 and ask for Wendy. We have part-time (2/3 days a week with 3, 4, 6, or 10 hours) or 5 days with 3, 4, 6, or 10 hours a day.
