Pa e 2 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS * WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 2017 facility. Right now, they have nine school age kids, 11 in the 3-5 year range, 4 toddlers, and 3 babies. Jessica Feist joined the team at Sunshine Kids Center this past spring as their new director after completing her Child Development Associate degree. Jessica had worked here previous to that since 2011 in varying capac- ities and when the opportunity to become director came up, she took the chance. "It's a great place for kids to grow and learn," Feist said. "They do learn a lot from being in a center-based daycare. With education as a big part of their programming, Feist said they work on tasks such as counting to 10, ABC's, and colors at a young age and then preschool is offered for 3 to 4-year-olds, which Feist said really helps pre- pare the kids for the school program. "There is a special kind of value a daycare center can bring to a child's education and development versus other care arrangements. One big ad- vantage is small caregiver-child ratios with experienced staff who are led by a director with education in childhood development," said current board President Sarah Johnston. "These kids leam a lot alongside their peers and I'm told it shows when they get into the formal school system." Much of the longevity of Sunshine Kids Center can be credited to the community, who has stood by the center through the past 20 years, whether through enrolling children, serving in an employee capacity, taking part as members of the board, or simply by attending fuladraisers the annual Spring Carnival and Easter Egg Hunt or the Park River Farmers Market meal. "The community has done a great job supporting us over the years, and in turn, we have been able to offer an excellent place for children to thrive," said Johnston. Sunshine Kids Center will be serving a free will offering market meal on Thursday, Aug. 10 from 5-7 p.m. at the Little Park featuring a menu of BBQs, Pulled pork, salads, chips, lemonade, and cake. ~lk'rf~i.~_"'~._T.~_ _"~_'._'~_T_" """" ~"~_ .'_.; _'~__'__"~'S' _11 Awards.
