Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Sonshine Preschool is a ministry of Eastside Covenant Church. Our program received accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of our program is to provide an enriching experience for young children in a Christian environment. The program has been planned with the purpose of encouraging the true and unique person found within each child and developing constructive attitudes for happy and responsible relationships with peers, parents, teachers, and God. The churchâ??s mission is to build a loving community of believers who worship God, learn from His Word, lead people to Christ and serve God through serving people. Our vision is people, enlivened and empowered by Christ. We build committed relationships such that all thrive, especially children and youth. Our ministry to children is part of our larger commitment to enrich families. We believe that the family is Godâ??s instrument for building character and compassion in humans. Strong families create strong communities which creates a strong nation (Psalm 128). We not only want to bless your child, but your entire family.
