About the Provider

Description:

Little Sunshine’s Playhouse maintains an identity and brand image of unrivaled distinction in early childhood education. Our facilities serve as a castle for a “Once Upon A Time” experience that enables each child to develop their imagination. We use industry-leading technology in our programs to provide exclusive services such as our Kiddie Cams™ and LuvNotes™!

 

Additional Information:

Our distinctive services have been developed to meet specific connection, communication, security, nutrition, and convenience desires of our families while also positioning Little Sunshine’s as an Early Care innovator!

Our master planned and Reggio Emilia inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine™, supports the fact that children are full of curiosity and creativity, ready to explore the world with a sense of wonder and awe. Children have the right to an environment and teachers that will foster and cultivate a lifelong passion for learning and exploration. This philosophy sees the child as a competent and active participant in their own learning.

The success of our curriculum and our program as a whole can also be attributed to parent participation being highly encouraged. Our curriculum and monthly planning fosters strong parent/teacher relationships through verbal communication, LuvNotes™ (electronic daily messaging), posted classroom schedules and lesson plans, newsletters, conferences, events and programs. Parents can even use our Kiddie Cams™ to continue their involvement by watching an activity or event at its planned time when they cannot be there in person.

All efforts with curriculum are focused at ensuring that each of our students leaves our program with all the necessary skills to flourish in Kindergarten and beyond.
