- Infant Childcare Programs (6 Weeks – 1 Year)
A lifelong love of learning begins in the very first years of your child’s life. At The Sunshine House, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your child is used to receiving at home.
We are focused on the individual infant child care needs of your baby, and utilize the primary caregiver system in our nursery. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver with primary responsibility for building a relationship with your baby, meeting your infant care needs and answering questions related to your baby’s day, progress and development. Your caregiver will also work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules.
While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your child’s interests and development. We also utilize Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized curriculum that helps support your baby develop critical skills. It is one of the only curriculums approved by every State Board of Education in the country.
- Toddler Care Programs (1 – 3 Years)
This is a time of great developmental strides! As your toddler begins walking and talking, their natural curiosity drives them to discover and explore. In our toddler care classroom, we respond to this energy with fun learning activities and creative playtime that stimulates the mind and encourages exploration, while introducing structure and an established routine.
This is also when many children start the potty-training process. When your toddler is developmentally ready to start potty-training, we’ll partner with you to create consistency from school to home.
Our toddler learning program is built using the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum® as a foundation to help your child build invaluable skills, such as language development, fine motor skills, analytical skills, positive self-image, creativity, increased attention span, communication and social integration.
- Early Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)
At this age, your child is discovering something new each day. Our Early Preschool program is uniquely created to respond to your child’s natural curiosity and interest in exploration, while providing the structure and support your child needs during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool.
Your active, inquisitive child will participate in engaging experiences that support the development of their brain, body and social-emotional skills.
The foundation of our early preschool curriculum is Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized, state-approved program that supports your child in developing critical skills. We enhance this curriculum with the latest research into brain-based development, available only at The Sunshine House.
- Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)
The preschool years are a time of great creativity and social growth for your child. At The Sunshine House, we plan a day full of fun, engaging experiences designed to stimulate your preschooler’s body and mind – and to spark a lifelong love of learning.
Building a solid foundation in the academic skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond is important at this age. Our preschool classroom utilizes the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum®, the leading curriculum to help your child develop the skills needed for school. It is also one of the only curriculums approved by every state in the country.
Our preschool program is focused on school readiness. Our early education specialists make learning science, math, language, social studies, music and art fun for your preschooler with engaging activities and fun experiences.
Our preschool educators also incorporate Seeds of Literacy, our exclusive literacy and character development program, into your child’s day. This program uses high-quality children’s literature to instill literacy concepts, such as phonemic and phonetic awareness, letter recognition, and writing. The program helps build character as children explore character traits such as responsibility, patience, creativity, and respect. Be sure to look for the Seeds of Literacy board in your child’s classroom to find out more.
