Sunny's Sports Pre-School

Sunny’s Sports Pre-School is a drop off preschool program that allows kids (ages 2.5 – 5 and potty trained) to discover how they learn best – by staying active and engaged. We instill the building blocks of a healthy life, which includes physical fitness, art, science, social skills, literacy and math. At Sunny’s Sports Pre-School, our expanded program provides a unique environment that combines an academic curriculum with fun, engaging fitness-related activities. All of our activities are play-based and child-oriented. In addition to development in academic areas like literacy and science, we strive to support children in discovery, creative thinking and independence.

SOCIAL SKILLS:

Young children need guidance and support as they learn positive ways to interact with those around them. We support this development by actively helping children through conflicts in a way that takes everybody’s needs into consideration.

ART:

We strive to give our young artists many opportunities to express themselves. We focus on process art – we emphasize the creative process rather than any particular finished product. The children direct their own creative process.

SCIENCE:

Our science curriculum is all about discovery and exploration of the world around us. We do a variety of exciting science experiments as well as sensory play where children make discoveries on their own.

EARLY LITERACY:

At Sunny’s Sports Pre-School, we provide a print-rich environment where children see and interact with words and letters all day long. In addition to daily experiences with books we sing songs, tell stories, and learn poems and chants.

Our literacy activities support:

  • Phonological Awareness: This vital tool encompasses a variety of individual skills, including rhyming, alliteration, segmenting words, counting syllables in words and more
  • Alphabet Knowledge: Recognizing upper and lowercase letters and learning the sounds those letters make
  • The concept of words in print
  • Early writing and letter formation

MATH:

Children need to develop a variety of different skills before they can understand concepts like addition and subtraction. Our program focuses on development of a variety of number sense skills, such as:

  • Rote counting: Counting from 1 to 10 (or higher!) – Rote counting is the memorization of the numbers, repeated like a poem or song
  • One-to-one correspondence: The ability to match one object to one number or object
  • Rational counting
  • Numeral recognition
  • Understand basic shapes
  • Measuring: We start by measuring things with non-traditional measurements (pencils, hands, feet, etc.) and then move to traditional measurements (inches, cups, etc.)
  • Patterning: Learning to form increasingly complex patterns is an important skill for science, math and reading skill development

FOOD:

Healthy snacks are provided daily. Please send your child with a water bottle or sippy cup filled with the drink of your choice. Please bring a lunch if staying past 12:15pm.
