Bellevue Sunshine is a child care and early learning facility licensed by the State of Washington. It is situated close to Lake Hills Park in Bellevue. Being a small group facility, it has limited openings. Enrollment in the child care program at Bellevue Sunshine is for full months and we do not accept drop-ins. The child care and learning program offered is exclusive in many aspects. Contact us to schedule a facility visit and know more details about the program. Children up to age 6 are accepted in Bellevue Sunshine.
Babies need the most care of all age groups. The facility is equipped to provide care for 2 enrolled infants at a time.
1 - 3 year olds are just discovering their surroundings. This is the age where early learning kicks in. Bellevue Sunshine provides toddlers a safe and rich environment to build on their inquisitiveness.
3 - 6 years of age is the period when foundational learning happens in children before school begins. We offer a unique blend of Montessori style and curriculum based 'adaptive' learning for pre-schoolers.

I believe that children learn most from their parents! One of the key parts of my program is collaborating with parents to help understand more about their child in my care.
