Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The process of growing up includes maturing emotions as well as skill development. Sunshine Nursery School enriches this process for young children through interaction with many individuals, adults and other children. In our relaxed but structured atmosphere, children gain some understanding of the personalities, ideas and problems of others. A child entering kindergarten at the age of 5 has a greater advantage if he or she has a mature and cooperative attitude toward others. We aim to enable each child to develop to the fullest potential of individual personality rather than to fit into a preconceived mold. Our emphasis is on development and encouragement of many facets of a youngster's personality."
