Sonshine Preschool Ministries provides quality early childhood education and childcare for 2-year-olds through 5-year-olds. Our focus is to provide a nurturing, caring & developmentally enriching environment in which children of all levels are encouraged to learn and grow. We balance learning with free & structured play as well as teacher-directed activities. We have extended that same philosophy to school-age children so that children have the opportunity to continue learning throughout the summer break. We are Christian-based and family-focused, offering optional Extended Care programs to support families in the community.
