Sonshine Kids Preschool Ministry

Preschool -  3s turning 4 & a few 2 1/2 year olds* turning 3 by Sept 15thSubtitle

Potty trained: recognizing when he/she needs to potty AND getting to the potty.

80% self sufficient

We have two potty breaks in the schedule.  Students must be willing to "try".  If the student "fights the teacher" on the potty, he/she may not be developmentally ready to participate in a classroom style setting.
Morning session: 3s will be divided into two age groups:

  • One class of 3s with fall semester birthdays (all students will be 4 by December)

  • A second class of 3s with spring semester birthdays (January - May) plus summer birthdays.  

     *This is the class where we may have a couple 2 1/2 year olds who will be turning 3 prior to January.

As the class rosters develop, we may be having our oldest 3s who turn 4 late July or early August/September in our very younger PreK class.  This will just depend upon enrollment.

Class sizes: 7 students with one teacher

Afternoon session: This session is well suited for the active preschooler because this session usually has more outside learning due to weather being warmer in the afternoon. 

The children will learn:

  • Indoor and Outdoor Classroom Experience
  • STEM Activities
  • Learning Through Play 
  • Alphabet Capital Recognition (Out of Order)
  • Counting and Number Recognition
  • Lots of Playing Together and Social Skills
  • God's Love For People/Bible Learning
  • Science Experiments
  • Colors and Shapes
  • Spiritual Foundations
  • Music Appreciation
  • Phonics

This class will have LOTS of hands-on learning centers which focus on fine motor skills while learning letters or numbers or patterning.  We believe preschool should be FUN and help kids learn in their playful style.
