Health, hygience and safety are our top priority! We have secure entrances and require written approval for any guest pick-ups. Toys and equipment are sanitized throughout the day, and as they are placed in children's mouths. A professional cleaning company cleans and disinfects each evening, and the floor rugs are professionally cleaned quarterly and spot treated as needed.
Funshine uses an easy to use app & web based parent communication and family involvement tool called Daily Connect. Daily Connect provides real time communication of diaper changes, feedings, activities and photo's are shared throughout the day.
Sign Language and Spanish begin in our infant classroom with basic vocabulary such as "milk" or "more". Children develop additional skills as Sign Language and Spanish is implemented through daily planned activities, and incorporated into our music program.
The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. In their early years, children explore the world around them by using all their senses (touching, tasting, listening, smelling, and looking). .
A diverse classroom is one in which both the students and the teacher are accepting of all people, regardless of their race, culture, or religion. This acceptance is evidenced by the books we read, the activities that are completed and the lessons that are taught.
