Students, Advanced Academics in Miami, FL

Give your children the building blocks for a prestigious career with advanced academics from the professional staff at Sunflowers Academy in Miami, Florida. We offer a widespread selection of comprehensive morning and after school care, as well as educational programs. Our academic program is in tune and designed to meet the needs of our students and how they learn.
 
We integrate technology into the programs with a variety of methods, including the Smart Board™. Smart Board gives access to a whole global network of information at the touch of a button. As an interactive tool, the students and teachers may access the system together for global learning, international student exchange learning, and webinars.

The New Generation State Standards serves as the basis for our curriculum. These are the required goals for all the students in the State of Florida. They provide a guideline for us to ensure that the students are acquiring the mandated skills at each grade level.
 
By working with these goals throughout the school year, we ensure that each student has the opportunity to engage in educational experiences in academics, arts, and physical fitness. You may obtain a copy of the state standards for kindergarten through eighth grade from the Florida department of education at www.fldoe.com.

The Children's Trust

 

https://www.thechildrenstrust.org/

In the late 1980s, recognizing that the needs of children in Miami-Dade County far exceeded the resources and support systems available, a cadre of committed individuals spearheaded a drive to address the problem. Using a Florida statute that allowed for such an initiative, the group generated a two-part referendum in 1988. Voters overwhelmingly recognized the need to help area children, but declined to fund the remedy through tax revenues.

 A Commitment to Collaboration, Accountability and Results 

The Children's Trust, our staff and 33-member board remain committed to funding programs that offer the highest possible quality services, with the goals of implementing best practices and improving the lives of children and families in our community. Beginning in 2013 and over many months of 2014, The Trust, together with our board and with public input, generated the 2014 Strategic Plan. The revised plan maintains our funding focus on core programs while adding emphasis on collaboration and meeting the needs of the "whole child."

The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.

 

A Brief History

School food service programs such as we have in 1971 did not just happen overnight nor even during the past decade. Preceding today's programs is a long history of more than a hundred years of development, of testing and evaluating, and of constant research to provide the best in nutrition, nutrition education, and food service for the nation's millions of children in school.

Head Start and Early Head Start

The Head Start / Early Head Start Program provides comprehensive child development services for low income children and families in Miami-Dade County. The program is open to children ages new born through age 5, and provides care and instruction for children in a classroom setting.

Step Up For Students was created to help alleviate the enormous educational challenges faced by children in Florida who live in or near poverty. The program provides Tax Credit Scholarships to students in K-12 who come from low-income families. These scholarships allow the students to consider a participating private school or an out-of-district public school that may better suit their individual needs, an option which already is available to families of greater financial means. This choice is not based on whether the public school is judged as succeeding or failing. Rather, it recognizes that different children learn in different ways and that our collective struggle is to help the students who often are at the greatest disadvantage in modern education.
