My daughter attended for preschool and daycare. I appreciated the structure and consistency of the program. Curriculum themes (seasons, colors, holidays, etc) are integrated with reading, pre-writing and storytelling, counting, art, and music (my daughter loves to sing the songs she's learned) and biblical stories. She learned about rules, consequences, manners, and personal responsibility: i.e. clean up, sharing, communicating, etc. and has made many friends. She loved her teacher and the day care staff, all of whom are warm, knowledgeable, gentle and supportive. And she came home happy and tired! Sonshine School was such a blessing for us and I would highly recommend it.
