Early Preschool & Explorer Childcare Programs

In our early preschool program, your active 2- or 3-year-old will participate in engaging experiences and environments that support the development of their brain, body and social-emotional skills.

The educational childcare program is designed to provide the structure and support your child needs during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool.

Our Curriculum

The foundation of our early preschool curriculum is Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized, award-winning 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.

Literacy, Self-Esteem & Character Development Program

Our exclusive Seeds of Literacy program uses children’s stories to help your child develop important early literacy skills, including letter recognition, vocabulary development, letter-sound correlation and more.

Your child will also explore character traits such as patience, kindness, self-esteem and confidence, acceptance and leadership.

Spanish & Sign Language

We incorporate two additional languages into our early preschool program – Spanish and Sign Language. Research shows that early exposure to second (or third) languages provides children with multiple developmental benefits, including:

  • More advanced first language skills
  • More ease in speaking a second language later in life
  • Greater cultural understanding
  • More advanced literacy acquisition
  • Greater cognitive functioning


Inside Your Child's Day in Early Preschool:

  • Relationship-building exercises, critical thinking, sensory and language experiences
  • Small group learning experiences
  • Story time that includes Seeds of Literacy, focusing on literacy skills and character development
  • Music and movement
  • Outside time
