Toddler Program


Your toddler is on the move and becoming more active and independent as they begin exploring the world around them. Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®, helps inspire curiosity and imagination in a way that is unique to your toddler’s individual interests. 

To do this, our toddler classrooms are designed to encourage purposeful play where our teachers guide your child through age-appropriate learning experiences that prepare them with the knowledge they need to be confident as they grow.

Our preschool teachers work to foster skills like listening, counting, writing, and following simple instructions. They also foster skills like pushing and pulling, sorting objects by color and size and stacking objects. 

We have been at Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool since their opening last fall and our 14 month old is thriving. We couldn't be happier with our decision to enroll. The curriculum is exceptional (Reggio Emilia inspired - cognitive, social, emotional, language and physical skills), the food/nutrition quality is the best we've seen in the area, and the entire staff loves on our daughter every day!"
