Welcome to Sunshine Preschool

Curriculum & Core Values


Preschool Curriculum

Sunshine learning objectives are based on Learning Without Tears Curriculum. LWT makes learning easy and fun. Throughout the year we will focus on each child’s emotional/social development, independence, language and literacy skills, recognition and comprehension of letters and sounds, numbers, shapes, and patterns. The curriculum meets the age-appropriate needs of each classroom.

Reading and Writing

​Multi-sensory lessons help children develop important Kindergarten readiness skills. As children develop their motor skills, we actively and regularly teach good crayon and pencil grips in the components of handwriting. We focus on letter recognition and sounds following alphabet-based weekly themes:

  • Learning letter sounds and spelling with music
  • Proper pencil and scissor grip
  • Wooden pieces and hands-on letter play

Language and Literacy

Skills are presented explicitly and progress from easiest to most challenging.

  • Phonological awareness
  • Alphabet knowledge
  • Concepts about print and books
  • Vocabulary and word concepts
  • Oral language skills

Numbers and Math

Lessons give children time to play with real objects and test their ideas so that math becomes real and meaningful.

  • Shapes and patterns
  • Counting skills
  • Measurement and time concepts
  • Problem solving skills
  • Math vocabulary (less, more, bigger, smaller)

Learning Goals & Values

Sunshine Preschool Learning Goals and Values are adapted from Core Knowledge and cover the full spectrum of early learning:  social-emotional, physical and academics. Our teacher created curriculum is based upon these school readiness focused goals. We do it all at Sunshine--science, math, literacy, art, music and creativity! See our "DOWNLOADS" link above.
