At Sunrise Preschools, we offer scheduling that is flexible, with extended operating hours to serve your family’s requirements just like a regular child care center. However, Sunrise provides so much more with a top-quality curriculum and instructional methods developed from the finest child development programs. We have the best qualified teachers from the area on our staff and we require their continuous participation in specialized training (Minimum 18 hours per year - 150% of the Arizona state requirements) for early childhood education. We have convenient locations, great buildings and playgrounds that are designed specifically for the needs of your child. Any transportation to or from your child’s elementary school takes place in certified mini-school buses, not vans.
Our well researched learning curriculum is based on the widely recognized The Creative Curriculum, a curriculum that underscores the fact that each child benefits from developmentally appropriate practices. We conform to these practices throughout all of our programs, so that every child, regardless of age, will experience success early and often. At Sunrise Preschools, our focus is on “school readiness” activities that will prepare your child for immediate success when they reach Kindergarten.
We encourage you to take the next step and drop by one of our locations. Each of our state-of-the-art preschools sets the Arizona standard for child care excellence. Come by any one of our certified DES child care preschools located throughout the Phoenix area, meet with our helpful, friendly staff and experience for yourself what Sunrise Preschools of Arizona can offer your child and your family.
Sunrise Preschools only operates in Arizona so we are closer to the families we serve, allowing us a clearer understanding of their needs and requirements. This is a critical factor as we forge a mutually trusting relationship with our families who are participating in the DES Arizona Child Care Programs. It is our mission at Sunrise Preschools to partner with each of our Arizona families in continuing to provide excellence in quality child care and education.
The Arizona Department of Economic Security established the DES child care system to aid eligible families with child care costs, enabling parents to participate in employment activities and specific education and training programs that are related to their employment, or in certain other circumstances to help parents who are unable to provide care for their children. That’s where Sunrise Preschools fits in. Our centers furnish a nurturing environment for children aged 6 weeks up to 12 years in a fun and comfortable setting. We provide a structured curriculum beginning in our infant rooms and continuing up through all of our toddler and preschool programs.
