Since 1996 Sonshine has provided high quality childcare with a commitment to the whole child; physically, cognitively, emotionally, socially and spiritually. We are a licensed facility which exceeds the requirements set forth by the PA Dept. of Public Welfare. Sonshine also participates in the Keystone Stars program.
Our mission is for your child to develop a lifelong love of learning in a safe and secure environment.
Sonshine provides care to children 6 weeks of age to pre-K, as well as Before and After School Programs. We operate during the hours of 5:30 AM -5:30 PM Monday through Friday.
We believe that the greatest gift we can give children is the knowledge of Jesus Christ through character development. Through daily routines and lessons, the children learn obedience, attentiveness, gratefulness, manners, honesty, love, and so on.
Learning activities will include Bible stories, language arts, math, science, social studies, health, safety, physical education, music, and much much more.

— CLOUDS —
We encourage infant development by providing a warm, secure, nurturing environment. Our staff gives lots of TLC to our children by rocking, hugging, and cuddling to instill trust and provide comfort.
Babies enjoy a playful atmosphere enhanced by activities and toys to develop fine and gross motor skills. Babies enjoy early Bible concepts of love and acceptance through song and stories.
As infants thrive on consistency, each parent is encouraged to give a written copy of their infant’s schedule. Every child receives a daily report as we feel parent communication is very important.
— DEWDROPS & RAINDROPS (toddlers) —
Dewdrops: Walking to at least 24 mo.
Raindrops: Two year old class
Our Toddlers continue to develop in an atmosphere of loving care. They participate in structured activities that are designed to develop fine and gross motor skills, listening, and speaking skills, taking turns/sharing, and awareness of other’s feelings.
We have a balance of quiet and spirited activities to keep them interested. We offer hands on activities to encourage eager investigation of their world through books and imaginary play. We support our toddlers as they strive for independence and self-esteem by encouraging independent eating, cleanup, dressing, and toilet training.
The Bible stories and songs encourage spiritual growth. As parent communication remains important at this age, a daily report is sent home.
— RAINBOWS & PUDDLES —
Rainbows: Preschool (3 & 4 year olds)
Puddles: Pre-kindergarten until Kindergarten
Academic Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten
Our academic programs look like fun because play is our basis for learning. As the toddlers are transforming to independent active learners, they are encouraged with warm loving affirmation. Our program builds self-confidence to help them learn to make decisions, to develop talents, and to build self-esteem.
They will be introduced to the basics of pre-writing , pre-reading, basic math, concept of time, self-help skills, and music to guide them to a future academic success. The Bible stories and activities continue to provide support to their spiritual growth.
