An ideal environment for infants is one that stimulates their senses. At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse our infant preschool teachers provide a warm and secure place for children to grow at their own pace. Babies are held during feedings, rocked to feel loved and spend time on their tummies to discover the world around them. We play soothing music for nap time along with familiar tunes that they learn to recognize at other times throughout their day. Sign Language is also introduced as a way to communicate before they have developed their language skills.

We consistently evaluate each child based on age-appropriate benchmarks in order to assess individual growth and development.  This allows us to communicate with families and set realistic goals that will set your child up for success and the pride that comes with achievement.
