Default Another Daycare Name Question

I currently own a Licensed Daycare Home and am going to change it to a Group Daycare Home when I renew my license this weekend. Doing this will essentially restart the whole licensing process and I will receive a brand new license rather than a change to my current one. So I get to pick a new daycare name. I'm excited!

My current daycare name is Miss Beth's Family Childcare. I really dislike it. I applied for my license online and the online process was new at the time. It was super confusing and I was still in the process of choosing my daycare name... I entered in this one as a place holder and I intended on going back and changing it, but accidentally submitted the application instead

I'm from the Sunflower State and am liking Sunny Seeds Home Childcare... but I dislike how long my current name is and this one isn't any better.

My program is transitioning into a more "natural" environment. Our backyard is getting revamped in the next month or so and will be a natural playscape. Our playroom is going to be totally redone, as well.

Any name suggestions?

That's a good name! That could be your official name and use Sunny Seeds as a shorter version

Similar sun related names with Daycare/Childcare (or even Preschool/Academy, if you wish) at the end:
Sunflower (though that might be used by a lot of daycare)
Sun Beans (that was the name of the girl scout-esque group from a church we went to as kids)
Sun Beads
Sun Rays (or Little Sun Rays)
Sunshine (though that might be used by a lot of daycare too)
Sunlight
Sunrise
Sunrise to Sunset
(works if you're open from 6 to 6)
Sunny Days
Super Sunny
House of Sunshine
(or House O' Sunshine)
Fun In The Sun (or Fun 'N The Sun)
Suns and Stars (although the sun is technically a star, so it may be a little redundant)
Suns and Moons
Sun and Rain
(since plants need sun and rain to grow; also represents personal growth through the good times and bad times)
Summer Sun
Sunny Summer
Sunnyslope
(that's the name of an elementary school and street in my town)
Sunnyvale
Sunnyview
Sunny Valley
Sun Valley
Sun Grove
Sunny Grove
Sunny Vista
Sunnyhill
(can have a logo of a sun over a green hill)
Sunhill
Sunny Mountain
Soak Up The Sun
Sunfish


Just make sure that any names you pick aren't already registered with your state or too similar to another daycare in your area.

That's interesting. Mine is Sunflower Home Childcare as my subdivision's name is Sunflower.

Edited to add: The cover page of my contract has a whimsical picture of a sunflower and says: Sunflower Home Childcare where children learn and grow (or grow and learn...can't remember)
