Sonshine School began as a mother’s day out program, providing activities for children 12 months old through Kindergarten one day a week. In 1980, our program expanded into the summer months adding children through the 5th grade. In 1982, by expanding to two days a week, we were able to provide better service for the children. We changed the name to Sonshine School, reflecting our desire to offer more than a baby-sitting service.

Christian Care

Christian care for our children is very important to us. The focus of our school, through all the fun activities and projects, is on the Bible and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Bible stories and lessons presented in our classes have universal application with an emphasis on moral standards and Christian values. 


Play

Playing is serious business for our children! A wide range of developmentally appropriate activities is planned for each class. Many of the application lessons are practiced and reinforced during these play times. Some of these activities include recess time, organized games, handwork, arts and crafts, singing and field trips for the older classes. Self-expression and cooperation are encouraged in all of the activities.


Chapel

Chapel is our all-school assembly where we enjoy Bible stories, praying, puppet shows, flag salute, group participation and lots of singing. This is also where we recognize each child’s special day, his or her birthday.

Classes

Sonshine School has 10 classes ranging from ages six months to half-day Pre-School. The classes each have two teachers. Special consideration is given to teacher/student ratio for every age level. Our classes have age-appropriate pre-school activities which may include cooking, literature, music and their own curriculum. Lessons incorporate Bible stories that teach morals and wholesome living.


Curriculum

The younger children are taught beginning concepts like colors, shapes and age-appropriate activities. We have two Pre-K classes that focus on preparing the children for Kindergarten. Their curriculum includes counting, letter recognition and sounds, fine and large motor skills and art.


Teachers

Our teachers are dedicated to teaching the children in a loving manner. Teachers attend workshops and lectures to continually improve and enhance their curriculum and to get fresh and new ideas.


Directors

The directors are here to help make Sonshine School a wonderful place for our children. The office is open during Sonshine School hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Messages can be left in their office on other days. To speak with a director, call 341-0653. 


Enrollment Schedule

Our regular session is September through May with our summer session running during June and July. Our school year is based on the Edmond Public School calendar.
