We will have fun learning, using a hands-on, center-based approach. Our centers will include a literacy center, math center, dramatic play center, science center and art center. You will find that the learning format is a bit more structured, and your child will be learning to respond to simple requests such as "please, line up," or "please, sit down." Academically, we will introduce the alphabet, phonemic awareness, number recognition, the concept of number, rote counting, color recognition, and the recognition of basic shapes. There will be lots of dancing, singing, painting, drawing and gluing. Learning will be active, engaging and fun! Read more about our Rainbows program.
This class in an introduction to Pre-School. Our curriculum has monthly themes that include colors, shapes, stories, songs and rhymes. We will incorporate Bible stories, counting, alphabet, manners, sharing, and taking turns. We will learn about the world around us and people of the community, transportation, and nature (plants, insects, and animals). Read more about our Sonbeams program.
It is our goal and desire to provide a warm and loving place for your child to play and learn. This classroom offers half-day programs for both morning (6:30 AM-12:00 PM) and afternoon (12:00-6:00 PM) and also a full-day program. Most of the structured teaching time and activities take place during the morning hours. Our classroom ratio is 1 teacher for every 10 children and we have an extra teacher who "floats" during the busy time. We carry a 24 child roster most every day.

Preschool sessions begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue until 11:00 a.m. We will start with group time at 8:30 a.m. so it is very important that your child is in class by that time otherwise they will miss the most focused learning time of the entire day. Children arriving later than 7:45 a.m. need to have already eaten breakfast at home. Please remember that morning snack is just that - a snack; it should not be depended upon for breakfast.

Our format is planned to accommodate both pre-kindergarten and daycare programs. This class offers a pre-kindergarten program (8:00-11:00) as well as part-time daycare in the mornings (6:30-12:00) and afternoons (12:00-6:00) and full-time daycare. Children may bring their own early breakfast (we will provide milk only for this) but must be finished eating by 8:00 a.m. Read more about our Sonshine Kids program.
