  • About Us

Child Care Center in the San Antonio, TX Area

At Sunshine Montessori Academy, we believe that every educational experience should be centered on the child. The teachers, administrators, and staff members at our child care center believe that every child has the power to learn, is curious and creative, and can succeed.

At the same time, we know that no two children are exactly alike. We create an individual learning plan for each child, building on strengths and allowing the child to address any potential weaknesses. Each plan includes direct instruction, one-on-one tutoring, and small group work in a mixture that works best for the child.
Our Philosophy
An education at Sunshine Montessori Academy isn’t just about learning ABCs and 1-2-3s to prepare a child for school. We strive every day to make sure our students grow to be responsible, independent thinkers with a lifelong love of learning. We do this by engaging each child’s natural curiosity and interests on an individual level.

Every staff member knows that education is about more than learning a distinct set of skills; it’s about helping children grow to be caring, loving, and intelligent human beings. Our Montessori Managing Director has trained all of our staff members, and each takes a personal interest in teaching each individual child.

Our goal is simple: to educate each child who walks through our doors using the Montessori approach, allowing the young child to have his or her cognitive, social, physical, and emotional needs fully met. Every child is enrolled in a full educational program, with a pre-set, structured curriculum that is the same from classroom to classroom.

Communication is the key if we are to meet this goal. We regularly communicate with parents to ensure that our students are receiving an enriching, positive learning experience day in and day out.
To engage each child’s academic interests, we provide materials that teach a variety of academic subjects:
  • Phonics
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spanish
  • Mini Movers Dance Classes
  • Music & Movement
  • Ballet
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Geometry
  • Decimal System
  • Geography
  • Science
  • Botany

Your Child Will Love Coming to Our Daycare Center

The breadth and depth of these subjects allow our students to perform above grade level once they've left our toddler and preschool programs.

Our classrooms have a mix of ages to encourage each child to learn at his or her own pace. Younger children learn from older children and vice-versa. Each child learns, and each child teaches. Our Montessori materials are designed to help each child develop specific skills, learn interesting facts, or understand certain qualities. It’s no wonder that our children thrive in such an enriching, stimulating environment.
Our Staff
All of our staff members are CPR and First Aid trained, and we all take responsibility for making sure our school is a well-maintained, clean, orderly, and loving environment. Our caregivers give loving, age-appropriate attention to all of the infants and young toddlers we look after, and our teachers and administrators are dedicated to giving our children the best start they can in their academic careers. Every one of our lead teachers is a certified teacher, and the owners of our establishment are Montessori training certified.
Facilities & Extra Services
The owners of our school have many years of experience educating young children. We have taken over other daycare centers, remodeled the facilities, and restructured the curriculum to provide true education, not just supervision. We make sure to keep our facilities well-maintained and clean so that they’re safe for our little ones. In addition to this, you’ll find that just about everything in our Helotes and Medical Center locations is brand new.

To make life a little easier for our parents, we also provide pickup and drop-off services for some children. Give Sunshine Montessori Academy a call for more information on our facilities and extra services. Our friendly team is also happy to answer any other questions you have regarding our child care center!
The Parent’s Role

We are not your child’s first teachers. You are.

You play a huge role in how your child does at our school, and we are eager to work with you to help your student get all he or she can out of these important early years. We always welcome parent communication and input. Please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions and concerns you may have.
