Sonshine Kids Preschool Ministry is committed to:

Academic excellence 

Learning to live life with God, our heavenly Father. 

Personalized instruction helping each one reach for "his/her next level"

Two primary focuses: 

1.  God's love for each individual:

His care for us, we can talk to Him anytime, and He is always with us.  

2. Academcis:  preparing students for Kindergarten with specific considerations toward the student's next step ie public school (Southern Hancock County, Triton, Warren), private school or homeschooling.  We have some students who are homeschooled for K in the morning and come to our afternoon session.  Mrs. Beale has more information regarding this option.  

To do this, we focus on phonics, early reading, recognition and writing letters in the same style used by the local school district.  Number recognition and writing 0-20, counting by ones, tens and fives, patterning and early math skills are all taught with hands-on learning and fun centersSometimes our centers are even outside!

We are a ministry of Community Christian Church not a separate entity.

Sonshine Kids Preschool Ministry currently offers three different age levels and two session options:  

All students must be potty trained ie recognizing when he/she needs to potty and 80% self sufficient.  We understand some accidents will happen.

Our Pre-Kindergarten class is for children that are 4 years old by August 1st or turning 6 next May-July.  These children will be entering Kindergarten the following year.  Students in this group are learning how to function with classmates in a group setting.

Our 3s (with a fall birthday) class is for children that are 3 years old by August 1st.  These children will have one year of preschool and then move to the Pre-Kindergarten class the following year.  We have found great success with the three year olds attending preschool three days a week.  That third day gives the repetition to reinforce some information they may otherwise not retain.  We are different from other preschools in this third day, but it remains an intentional difference.  

Our 3s (with a spring semester or summer birthday) & a few 2 & 3/4th's class is for children who will be 3 by August 1st or by September 15th.  These children will have more songs, active learning, outside time and very little table time the first semester.  The second semester, they will be able to do a little more academic work with a focus on hands on activities.

Our Extended Session is to help Pre-K students particularly prepare for the current five full days a week kindergarten programs.  Younger students are welcome in this program as room is available.  Students bring their own lunch.  This is an optional program and runs from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m.

During this sessions students do additional art, games and hands-on activities.

Sonshine Kids Preschool has classes every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Morning students can be dropped off between 8:15 am - 8:45 a.m. and picked up at 11:30 a.m.

We follow Southern Hancock School Corporation's school calendar as well as for delays and most cancellations (for exampleif their buses don't start or some other building related issue, we may still have school.) We start our year later than Southern Hancock and end a little earlier but all breaks, federal holidays, etc. are the same as Southern Hancock.
