Sunflower Daycare

Russian Immersion Early Childhood Learning Center

Core Values - bilingual learning, safety, fun!

  • We are the ONLY Foreign Language Immersion center in the southern suburbs of Twin Cities

  • We are not a chain. We are owned and operated by a local couple with children in the program.

  • We are BOTH a licensed childcare center and a preschool. Our toddler program also has a curriculum, which is a simplified version of formal preschool curriculum.

  • The owner / director Irina is a former ESL K-12 school teacher (still licensed), knows all Kindergarten standards and is focused on Kindergarten Readiness

  • We offer weekly music and dance classes taught by professional instructors

  • As a part of our curriculum, we teach social emotional skills, life skills, gross and fine motor skills.

Our bilingual program benefits all our children. Our children from Russian only speaking families maintain their Russian skills, while getting exposure to the English language, the language of our country, and that exposure is quite enough to prepare them for Kindergarten. Our children from mixed Russian-American families maintain their English skills at home, while developing their Russian language skills, the language of their grandparents. Our English only families get immersed into Russian as a foreign language. It has been confirmed by linguists a long time ago that bilingualism is very beneficial for the cognitive development and future academic success.
