Should preschoolers have homework? Are there benefits? Does it make them “competitive” as students? This article looks at both sides of the argument, but explains why the educators at Little Sunshine’s Preschool decide not to assign homework to preschoolers and those in our pre-K program.
The Teacher of the Month award is designed to recognize an employee that exemplifies our core values, which are compassion, humility, integrity, loyalty and discipline. This month we are pleased to announce that our 2022 June National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Jordan of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Scottsdale.
Our Creatively Shine Curriculum™ theme this month is “Worldly Weather”. This at-home activity will be sure to bring the rain with your homemade rain sticks. Rain sticks are fun instruments that when you turn them upside down and it will sound like rain!
We believe that parents and teachers are partners in education. Working together is the best way to give your child the quality education they deserve, and parent-teacher conferences play an important role in that partnership. Here is a list of questions you can ask during a parent-teacher conference that will maximize the time you have with your child’s teacher.
For preschoolers and kindergarteners, some of the most important heroes they’ll ever meet live in their own communities. They’re called Community Helpers, and they just might inspire your child to be a better person and citizen. As a parent, make sure to point out Community Helpers when you and your children come in contact with them.
