Tam's Sunshine House
Tam's Sunshine House is dedicated to the growth and well-being of our students. Our students are treated the way you would want them to be treated, with kindness and understanding.
We strive to bring our students beyond what you would expect from a 'cookie-cutter' facility. We are warm and approachable to the children, giving them encouragement, and the desire to improve and grow!
Tam's Sunshine House is a Local, State, and Nationally certified Day-Care facility that care for children, regardless of race, color, ethnic origin, religion, or any other thing that someone can discriminate against. A child is just that to us. A child. We see no difference, and that is how we run our school.
Tam's Sunshine House is conveniently located on a bus line for the Parchment Public School District, and a Bus Stop is located within 5 feet of our Child Care Home. Bus service for both North, Northwood and Central Elementary is provided by the Parchment schools right to our door.
The Closest Head Start Program is located Parchment.
Tam's Sunshine House will also pick up and drop-off children to local Kalamazoo Elementary schools Please ask about this during your interview!

What Do We Offer for Children?
A balance between quiet play and active activities. With creative learning, open-child development play and a safe, loving environment that allows all children to grow and mature at their own pace.
We offer this “Sample” schedule of what might occur on a given day:
Arrival - Child arrives at facility
Breakfast - Children can't think straight without nutrition. We offer them a breakfast similar to what 'big' kids get at school.
Activity time - It starts getting fun here. We learn about group participation games, stories, crafts, a little stretching, arts, and more.
Outside play - The best part of a day! Outside where the big toys are! Woo-hoo!
Lunch - Time to eat lunch. Again, similar to schools. But there is a big difference. We prepare the food ourselves, and not from some condensed food packages either.
Nap time - After lunch, the little ones tend to get a little sleepy, so off to nap time. No one shares a pillow or blanket here. We keep the bedding separated, just in case.
Snack time - Time to get the kids up and going! A snack is nice.
Free time - Time for inside or outside play, or even field trips. Who knows what the children will do.
Outside play - Back to the great outdoors.. Weather permitting of course!
Dinner - The day wears down, and the children need to eat. We take care of that with home cooking here too!
Free play - More fun to play however they want.. So long as the children follow the rules and share..
Snack time - Let's wind them up for the trip home!
Departure - Alas, the day ends. The children by now are exhausted and are ready for bed.. uh.. mostly. (smile)
All Schedules are subject to change based on weather, number of children, season, or other factors.
