At Sunshine Day Camp, we offer a quality, affordable, safe and an unparalleled preschool program. Our preschool program combines academic innovation with socialization activities and character development – creating a well-balanced experience for each child. Our curriculum encourages reading and math readiness, creativity, problem solving, fine motor skills and peer interaction.
At Sunshine, our dynamic, highly trained staff provide quality care – not simply babysitting. Our goal is to create an environment in which a child’s talents, academic skills and personality will flourish. We have been meeting this goal for preschoolers in the Santa Clarita Valley since 1987, offering both a full-day and half-day program to meet the diverse needs of families.
Childhood is a journey, and education and character building are dynamic, continuous processes. The journey doesn’t end when your child enters kindergarten or 3rd grade or 6th grade or 8th grade. It continues through adulthood. Our Sunshine preschool program is the first step on this journey, helping young people reach their potential in academics, creativity, and character.
SUNSHINE’S PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM
Unique to Sunshine’s preschool program is our “Three Components of Learning.” This concept provides children with a balanced approach to preparing for the challenges of kindergarten and elementary school. These components include socialization, academics, and character.
