Sunshine School provides day care and free Universal Pre-Kindergarten programs which
have been serving the community for over almost 10 years. The classrooms follow NYS
common core standards and utilize a curriculum revolving around all the childrens' interests.
Classes are operated in collaboration with the Integrated Program of Sunshine Developmental School which ensures that all staff are NYS certified.
Sunshine School’s mission is to interact with children in a safe and consistent manner in order to aid the development of a love for learning and a love for school.
The Daycare program is a safe, nurturing place that incorporates a stimulating academic environment.
Since children “learn by doing,” we provide experiences that are stimulating in all areas physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Children can repeat tasks and revisit learning centers, as they wish, in order to afford them the opportunity to explore experiences deeply. Learning centers include block building, science, math, pretend/dramatic play, sensory (including sand and water), art, computers, reading, writing, listening, musical instruments, etc. Adults are assigned to promote interactive discussions and learning experiences. In addition, there is an art specialist who works with each class at least once a week. Outdoor play is offered daily, weather permitting. Indoor gyms provide daily gross motor activities for students, when the weather is inclement.
Thank you for your interest in Sunshine School's Daycare and UPK programs! Our goal is to build positive, long-term relationships with you and your family!
