As soon as you enter Sunbeam Child Care Center, you’ll understand why families have trusted Sunbeam for over 30 years. It’s a place where kids feel safe and nurtured, where they receive a balance of loving care and academic encouragement. Play is a priority, but the play is carefully designed to help children develop cognitively, physically, and socially – all important aspects of early learning.

In the fall of 1980 Sunbeam Nursery School opened its doors. In 1991 as the need in the community grew for quality child care Sunbeam expanded to a fully licensed child care center. The center was renamed to Sunbeam Child Care Center LLC. Over the last 30 years Sunbeam has evolved into a leader in the early childhood education field. We are Nationally Accreditated by NAEYC and have received TIER III status by the West Virginia Department of Health & Human Services. To more represent the mission and philosophy of Sunbeam, in January of 2011 we have expanded our name to Sunbeam Early Learning Center.

We strive for an atmosphere that respects the individual differences of children and their parents, and yet appreciate the individual differences in all of us. We invite you to bring your child and visit us in person – so you can see our outstanding program in action.

But most of all to BE A CHILD.
