Programs for Children: 3yrs - 11 yrs of age



We offer a variety of care throughout the day to accommodate families individual needs and to help keep the costs as low as possible for families. For children kindergarten-grade 5 we offer before and after school care daily with pro-days already set aside for your child's use and included in your fee from September - June. Families with 3-5 year olds also have the added option of having their child attend for either a full day (7:00-5:00) or short days (9:00-2:15 on regular school days) September to June. Families choose which set days per week they wish to enroll for. We also offer full day programs during the summer months for all ages, and enrolled clients have first choice for enrolment in these programs each year.



All of our programs are quality early learning programs with school readiness and nature exploration curriculum provided in positive, friendly, and relaxed environments. We incorporate a bullying prevention program into our day and through this program we are teaching children to resolve conflict with their peers independently and to be a part of "Team Sunshine"!


We spend lots of time exploring and enjoying nature and the Great Outdoors we are blessed to have in our "backyard", throughout the year. We accomplish this through the use of our 24 passenger school buses.



                    The more places you go, the more things you know!


​Sunshine Staff members all have first-aid certification, criminal record checks, and educational background in the Early Childhood Education profession. We have long term employment rates and our staff provide quality programming and a warm and nurturing environment to all children in our care.
