Sunshine staff members understand that young children need support in learning to respect each other, adults, and themselves.

They know that at the heart of a great preschool is a commitment to knowing each child well, to creating a program that engages each child in thinking and asking questions, and to promoting independence and the ability to persist when figuring things out.  We help our students become independent learners who know their ideas matter. We know they learn best by doing, experimenting, and observing.

Our teachers are masters of knowing what young children need and teaching in a way that builds keen intellects and thoughtful, caring individuals.  Each teacher knows how to understand the needs and complexities of child development in Toddlers and Preschoolers.  We know how important it is to work in partnership with parents.

We are committed to using research about the best practices in early childhood education to shape our program, and to continually improve it.
