Sunshine Academy



We believe that children do their most important learning before the age of five. They learn best through child-centered and child-directed activities, and through the exploration of materials and themes. Teachers act as facilitators.

Teachers act as facilitators, providing materials, guidance and support for each child to learn at his or her own pace. We recognize that every aspect of the program affects all of the children enrolled. The physical environment, staff, activities and services all contribute to your child’s experience. The program maintains a maximum quality level that promotes your child’s health, growth and development; encourages services that strengthen family life; and supports families in the essential task of nurturing your child’s development.

Our philosophy is to:
Focus on your child’s unique abilities and potential
Engage qualified staff with a caring, nurturing, loving and supportive attitude
Create opportunities for you to be involved in all aspects of your child’s care

We admit families of every race, color, cultural heritage and national origin, regardless of marital
status, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief.
