Toddler Care & Early Education Program

At The Sunshine House, we respond to your toddler’s growing energy and curiosity with fun learning activities and creative playtime that encourage exploration while introducing structure and an established routine.

Our toddler curriculum is framed by Creative Curriculum, a nationally-recognized, scientifically-based program that supports your child in developing crucial skills. We supplement this curricular framework with proprietary brain-based experiences, developed by early education experts to provide for optimal brain development. As children develop, we create structures and routines to meet their ever-increasing skills.

Your toddler will enjoy a playful environment specially designed to promote learning experiences in a way that makes learning fun. Interactive learning spaces, brain-based learning opportunities, and caring teachers come together to build a solid learning foundation for your child.

Research tells us that children’s brains develop best when they have active experiences in:

  • Critical thinking
  • Movement
  • Language development
  • Relationship building (Social-emotional experiences)
