Little Sunshine’s Academy offering daycare in Carthage

August 10, 2022

Little Sunshine’s Academy, a new licensed daycare opening in Carthage, will be hosting an Open House Friday, August 26th from 1 -5 p.m.

The facility is located at 117 Eatherly Road in Carthage. In their phase 1 opening LSA will have room for 48 children in 4 classrooms. They will be enrolling children 30 months old to 6 years old. The low child-to-teacher rations and small class sizes will enable the teachers to develop close bonds of trust and respect. Qualified and experienced teacher will work with each child on an individual basis to help them reach their highest learning potential.

Owner, April Brooks shared that at Little Sunshine’s Academy we believe that each child has unique, God-given gifts and that some of the most important learning opportunities happen during everyday moments. They will use a comprehensive approach to educate and enrich the whole child.

The preschool curriculum is play based and they will focus on the belief that play is a child’s work and play is the most important learning model for young children. LSA will provide a clean, safe, developmentally appropriate and nurturing environment that provides social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth, as well as a positive self-image and love of learning.

April said “It’s been on my heart and mind for quite a while to find a way to make a positive difference in the lives of young children. After recently moving back to Smith County, it was brought to my attention the need for more child care in the area. The timing was perfect because I have been a nurse for the past 18 years, 12 of those in pediatrics, and I was ready for a change. So I decided to take a leap of faith and open Little Sunshine’s Academy.”
