At Sunny’s Pre-school we will provide the materials, opportunities and guidance while the children do what they do best – learn through play and exploration.


Research has shown repeatedly that children learn best when they are active, engaged, and interested. We take this into account when planning a curriculum. We have developed a curriculum based on healthy learning through play. Drawing on the best of Reggio, Waldorf, and Montessori, we have infused it with healthy eating, healthy learning and open-ended play for a rich developmentally-appropriate setting. We will have weekly lesson plans and monthly themes that are relative and age appropriate. However, we believe that learning should be a joyful, natural experience and understand that the lesson might alter based on children’s interests and/ or unexpected events.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”Mister Rogers
Our expanded program provides a unique environment that combines an academic curriculum with fun, fitness related activities. Participating in sports not only helps children with cooperative, fine and gross motor skills, but boosts confidence and reduces stress!

At Sunny’s Pre-School, we run, jump, climb and tumble every day! Some of our sports include:

  • Ninja
  • Gymnastics
  • Yoga
  • Dance
  • Rock climbing
  • Outdoor activities
  • And more!


Latest research has also shown that a foundation of high emotional intelligence is an important factor in a child’s future success in relationships, academics, and making healthier choices. In our classroom, building strong social skills is priority. We strive to foster a respectful environment where children can express their needs and feelings in a safe way. We focus on compassion for one another, how to take responsibility for ourselves, and how to communicate effectively.

With a focus on kindergarten readiness, early literacy, math, science and art skills are built into our daily activities. Along with these, we have weekly hands-on specialties in art and science. We ensure all activities are developmentally appropriate and are flexible enough to meet the individual needs of the children in our program.

By combining social/ emotional learning, along with sports and our engaging academic curriculum, we focus on the health and happiness of the whole child, providing the foundation for their future success in school and beyond.

“We must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but candles to be lit.”Robert H. Schaffer
