Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Welcome to Sunshine Playschool. We are glad you have chosen our
program. This handbook has been written to describe our program, goals,
policies, and the myriad of practical details that go into making each day as
happy and successful as possible. Please study it and keep it for reference, as
it will answer many of your questions.
We believe in the value of human diversity and the fair treatment of all
people. It must be our number one goal to provide the kind of environment
and the kind of influences that encourage all of our children to become
creative, independent, and responsible. Secondly, as adults we must strive to
continue learning and growing in our relationships with others so that we may
nurture a peaceful environment and surround the children with understanding,
warmth, encouragement, and giving."
