We are a small school with up to 21 children and four teachers. Our center is located on five acres of land, which provides many opportunities for nature walks, exploration, and visits to the goats and ponies who live next door. We are open year-round and close four weeks during the year for training, cleaning, and vacation. Sonshine Kids is closed during the weeks of Hays CISD's Spring Break, the fourth of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Sonshine Kids CDC is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and we exceed their standards in many areas:
- child: staff ratios
- class size
- education and experience requirement for teachers
- nutritional guidelines
- nature walks
- hands-on experiences
