First-Rate Curriculum

image1582

We use the State of Ohio's Early Learning Standards when preparing our classes for what is developmentally appropriate for each age group. We understand that children learn through a variety of avenues and ensure their enrichment intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.  In each class we work to prepare the children for what comes next for them, whether it is a second year here at Sonshine, or moving ahead into Kindergarten. 

Our Mission

image1583

Our mission is that each child come to know and experience God's love, to learn to interact in a positive way with others and to feel self-confident. We recognize each child approaches learning differently and comes to school with a wide range of developmental levels, backgrounds, experiences and needs. At Sonshine Preschool we understand children learn best in a supportive, constructive, and nurturing environment and we strive to meet the needs of the whole child while preparing them for success in Kindergarten and beyond. We desire each child become excited about learning and develop a strong self-image, which will help him/her strive and work to overcome obstacles and we believe each day offers new opportunities for success and growth. We are licensed by the State of Ohio and supervised by Parma Heights Baptist Church.

Classrooms

Mother Goose and Critter Express

Critter Express & Mother Goose have the oldest children at Sonshine Preschool. These classes are for four and five-year old children that will be moving ahead into Kindergarten the following year. 


Critter Express offers a MON/WED/FRI or 5-Day PreK program, while Mother Goose is a 5-Day PreK program. Your child must be 4 by August 1st and entering Kindergarten the following year for the 5-day class.

Noah's Ark

Noah's Ark is offered to older 3-year olds, 4's and 5's. This class offers programs on TUES/THURS or MON/WED/FRI. While this class may be a first time for some of our students, many have returned for a second year. In this class, half of the children will return for another year of preschool while the rest will move ahead into Kindergarten.
