At Sonlight’s Shining Stars Child Development Center (CDC), we have a mission to affect our community by providing all children with excellent care in a clean, safe, secure and Godly environment. We strive to develop each child spiritually and educationally through teaching Biblical lessons in a creative and fun way. This yields positive growth spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. Our children are groomed to be “Todays Learners, Tomorrows Leaders!” Our purpose is to provide your child with a safe, warm and developmentally appropriate environment that provides a quality educational experience. Children in our programs are encouraged and enabled to mature spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. Our goal is to provide the kind of care and education you want for your child. For that reason, every one of our teachers is specifically chosen because of their dedication to meeting the developmental and educational needs of our children. Each member of our staff meets or exceeds the qualifications set by state laws and completes a full orientation. Every teacher also has a criminal background check including a sex offender check. In addition, teachers attend continuing education programs and Sonlight’s Shining Stars training workshops. We encourage teachers to earn a nationally recognized teacher certificate, called the Child Development Associate (CDA), or to obtain further college credit. The first five years of childhood are the most important in every childs development, learning and social skills. Our programs are designed to help your child reach their fullest potential. This features a full day of developmentally appropriate and fun activities including arts, crafts, music, puppets and more. Every day children have many activities and play experiences to choose from – all of which are planned with the specific age and interests of your child in mind with the goal of preparing your child for the next level of learning.

I am an employee
The center I see poorly ran. They can't keep employees because the pay is low and on payday they have to scrape up money to pay. The classrooms have barely nothing but used to they owners bought from goodwill the infant room and old raggedy cribs and the director doesn't put clean sheets on them Dailey. They run out of food often because they buy it on a daily basis some days the children drink water out the sink all day. The director/owner is never there. They only have 2 teachers and the kids are left inside the classrooms a lot by themselves. It's nothing Christian about the school they have absolutely no curriculum that they follow the kids do nothing all day but play outside in the fenced in playground on the side of the building and they nap them from 11:30 until sometimes 3 pm. They don't have proper cleaning and sanitary supplies for the staff on a daily basis.i would not enroll a child I need this facility.
