Children will feel more capable as they are encouraged to practice new skills through play and one-on-one interaction. They participate in music and art activities, work on hand-eye coordination, and use fine motor skills while engaging in different activities through-out their day. Your infants will hear Bible stories, sing songs, and pray as they begin to learn about God. They will practice gross motor skills while playing in our gym on those not so nice days, and on the playground when weather permits.

Pre Kindergarten (Eagles)

The Eagle class is a room that is filled with daily activities to get your child ready for Kindergarten. Sunshine Early Learning Center uses Creative Curriculum, which gives the opportunity to incorporate a teaching guide called D.i.G. (Develop, inspire, and Grow) inspiring children to learn at his/her own pace. D.i.G. focuses on each interest area (Math, Science, Language, Cognitive, and Literature). The children will learn how to recognize and write their names, have phonics identification, recognize upper and lower case letters and learn to rhyme words. The Eagle class learns new vocabulary words each day, while learning about quantities, counting, patterning, and shapes.  D.i.G. also provides children with the opportunity to develop necessary skills for cutting and writing. Each child will be given opportunities to grow socially by exploring many activities and centers. The children will explore Bible stories throughout the year, teaching  the children everything God has done for us and expressing his unconditional love. They will continue to show a love of worship by singing songs, praying, and understanding how God wants them to treat others.
