How do I enroll in childcare or a preschool?

Ready to get started? Follow these 5 easy steps to become part of The Sunshine House family today.

1. Find a school near you

Each school’s website includes photos, contact information, Center Director biography, school transportation, and more!

2. Contact the school

Classroom availability and tuition rates vary by school, and availability can change quickly. Contact the school you're interested in to get the most up-to-date information. You can call, email or send a form directly to the school through their website.

3. Schedule a tour

Choosing the right daycare or preschool is an important decision. A school may look great online, but nothing compares to visiting in person and getting a feel for the school, its teachers and programming. Not comfortable touring in person? Many schools have recorded virtual tours you can view online or you can set up a live virtual tour using Zoom.

4. Register at your school

Once you've made your decision to enroll, your Center Director will give you an Enrollment Package. This contains forms required by your state and information needed to take care of your child.

5. Submit your Enrollment Package

Once your Director has reviewed your application and processed all your state's required documents, it's time to schedule your start date!
