Sundowners Mission, Vision & Values


The purpose of Sundowners is to provide and promote licensed, non-profit, high quality, affordable, and accessible early learning and child care programs to meet the needs of children and families in Windsor-Essex County.

Vision & Values

Sundowners exists to provide a safe, developmentally, inclusive environment for toddlers, preschool, kindergarten and school age children. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early learning and child care experience which promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our goal is to support and nurture the children’s and our own natural desire to be life-long learners. We are committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement.

Our Values

  • Quality Care and Trust: When parents are looking for early learning and child care programs they need to find someone they can trust. We will continue in our efforts to ensure and continuously improve our services to meet the needs of the children and families we service.
  • Life Long Learning: At Sundowners we believe that we all share a responsibility to support and nurture the children’s and our own natural desire to be lifelong learners. We put ourselves and our learning on the same level as the child’s and commit to our own professional development and personal growth. We learn alongside the children and their families and embrace the opportunity to learn and grow each day.
  • Partnership: Respectful relationships are very important and on which our organization operates. We believe that quality of care we provide is measured by the quality of relationships we have with children, families, employees, school boards, funders, and legislators. We are committed to ensuring these relationships are respectful; warm and caring; honest and open; fair and equitable.
  • Fiscal Responsibility: We are committed to financial prudence and sustainability – to making decisions that take into consideration the overall financial health of the organization in order to meet our goals and objectives. We conduct ourselves in a manner that is professional and according to all business practices that are legal and ethical.
