Little Sunflowers will provide your toddler, preschoolers and pre-K with a warm, homey, safe environment where they will learn, develop and grow. With the huge advantage of spending years in an environment where they will receive individual attention and love from the same educator.  We follow a curriculum, but leave lots of time for free play. Allow your child to have their childhood of creativity and imagination with continuity of care, knowing they are part of a community.  They will take the lessons and love with them for the rest of their lives.   Learning through FUN is the key! We have LOTS of fun!!!


As of January 2021 Little Sunflowers has no openings.

Little Sunflowers is a great place to be!  Childcare is in a completely separate space from my home; even a separate entrance.  We have much, much more than the allowed 'space per child'.  I have all the same children everyday, limiting exposure.  

Do you think a nanny may be your best bet?  My daughters are both nannies and one of them is currently looking for a new placement and hoping it will be in Quincy.  She is available Mon-Thurs.  Please email her directly with any questions.  Her name is Jade and her email is:

Email Wendy:  to be added to an email notification list if you are looking for care in the future.  A general email is sent out to all on the list when there will be an upcoming opening.  *Only full time care is provided.

Much to my dismay I am horrible at returning phone calls.  If you have left a phone message with a question, please email instead.  I find it much easier to return emails.  Thank you!

Preschoolers and Pre-K

Little Sunflowers incorporates a preschool curriculum into our daily activities for fun and to prepare the older children for school. 
Wendy is Preschool Teacher Certified and will use her knowledge, along with a professional preschool curriculum to help your child learn throughout the day.  ALL of the advantages of a large preschool in a small exclusive environment with the individual attention and love your child deserves. All children will leave Little Sunflowers ready to enter Kindergarten!

*Curriculum follows the Common Core Pre-K Standards.  As a firm believer in young children needing freedom to play, explore and discover on their own as developmentally appropriate; learning takes place in a fun way at each child's pace.

 A typical day will have time for; reading stories, creating things with our hands, eating and sleeping and learning about ourselves, each other and the world around us.

endy isToddler Teacher Certified.  She will use her knowledge, as well as information provided by your child to make each day a happy one. 

Toddlers will be provided with stimulating and developmentally appropriate activities.  Toddlers learn by doing.  LOTS of hands-on activities will be provided as they learn through play skills.

With our small group it's so easy (and fun) to specify the curriculum around the children's natural interests and curiosities.
