Our master planned and Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®, is based off the latest research and trends to prepare young children to enter their educational career equipped with cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills. At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® we believe that a child’s work is PLAY! We teach children lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and preplanned play. We know that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives! Creatively Shine® guides our teachers through each day, enriching the classroom environment, building each child’s self-esteem, facilitating smooth transitions between activities and creating a literacy-rich and multi-cultural environment where each child will be comfortable to explore. The curriculum serves as a backbone to the classroom direction and structure with monthly themes, broken down into two to four units. For each month of curriculum, we have original projects, outfit each classroom with new items that reflect the monthly theme and provide related activities to support the individual concepts of the “whole child” (cognitive, social/emotional, physical and language). Our educational themes and units are followed company-wide creating important consistency throughout the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse preschools.
