SON-SHINE CHILD CARE CENTER
Son-Shine Child Care Center in Elmwood has become a very successful child care program. It first opened in 2005 and is located in the St. Paul United Methodist Church on West G Street. They are a non-profit ministry of the church. Their mission is to exceed the expectations in providing an outstanding program that offers high quality child care in a Christian environment.
Katy Drake is the Director and Amanda Cronk is the Assistant Director. The Center employs 15 people with at least 4 of them full time positions. That makes Son-Shine Child Care Center one of the largest employers in Elmwood! They currently have 69 children enrolled. That includes infants, toddlers, and school age children. They are located across the street from the elementary school so they offer a before and after school program.
The facility is set up with learning centers throughout. They include dramatic play, art, language/literacy, math/science, manipulative, and music. Children have the opportunity to participate in small group, large group, and individual activities. Each week they have a different theme for the kids to focus on.
For school-age children, there is a time following the afternoon snack to accomplish homework. The staff provides assistance when appropriate. If the child does not have homework there will be a personalized skills box for them to use according to their abilities. This keeps the child in the routine of setting time aside after school for homework or learning activities.
The Son-Shine Child Care Center staff is required to have a degree or sufficient experience in a childcare setting. All staff is CPR and First Aid certified and participates in on-going training in child development. They must pass a background check prior to being hired.
Son-Shine CCC is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 am-6:00 pm. They are closed on the weekends and holidays.
Son-Shine CCC is currently looking for quality employees to join their staff. They are primarily looking for staff for the day shift for full time, part time, fill in, or volunteers. If you are looking for something to fill in some time you may be surprised to find they have hours that will work with your schedule. It is a great place to work and the kids are awesome!
If you have questions about the program or employment opportunities contact Katy or Amanda at (402)994-2384.

Waking up from a nap is hard work!
Just 2 more minutes!
Garyn is the only male on staff at this time. The kids love him! He's just a big teddy bear.
Elvis is in the house! Or Lofte, actually...
Sunday afternoon John and Dillon Bruns finished covering up the hole. Great team work both days and they made it look so easy.
