School Notes

  • SonShine PreSchool offers a family environment for your child to learn and grow. Our program has a balanced time of both learning and play. In addition to teaching the basic ABCs & 123s, we also offer Spanish, Cooking, Science, Gym, Computer Lab, fun field trips and more. Our classes are kept small to insure great student/teacher communication. We are in affiliation with Yorktown Assembly of God. We have had students from many different religious backgrounds and are open to anyone who would like their child to attend. Our curriculum is faith-based, however, we do not teach doctrinal beliefs. We teach about the love of God and how we should treat others the way God would want us to treat them. If you have any questions about our curriculum, views or maybe would like to visit our facility, please don't hesitate to visit our website and/or contact us for an appointment. Thank you again for your interest in our school.
