Program Descriptions
All the programs of Sonshine Park Preschool highlight three basis themes about God:

God made me.
God loves me.
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

 

3 year old program

Three year olds at Sonshine Park Preschool enjoy theme based learning program. Themes are developed on an ongoing basis to reflect children’s interests. Children will explore different themes in a play environment. Within these themes, children will explore different creative mediums, fine and gross motor options, imaginative play environments and embedded learning activities. There is a significant focus on social interactions and group learning skills.

4 year old program

The four year old program is also theme based learning in which the themes are explored at a deeper level. As well, four year olds are introduced to pre-math, pre-reading and pre-science concepts. They will participate in activities which encourage fine motor development and will be guided in the development of more mature social skills and interactions.

Jr Kindergarten

The Jr Kindergarten curriculum has been developed based on Kindergarten entry expectations of local schools. The children will be intentionally led through a variety of learning experiences which were developed to expose children to a broad range of concepts, encourage motor skill development and foster excitement for learning. All activities are evaluated on the basis of age appropriateness and engagement by the children.

As well, four- year old classes are introduced to pre-math, pre-reading and pre-science concepts. They will participate in activities which encourage fine motor development (printing, pencil grasp) and will be guided in the development of more mature social skills and interactions.

Jr Kindergarten

The Jr Kindergarten curriculum has been developed based on Kindergarten entry expectations of local schools. This program is intended for children that could attend kindergarten but would benefit from another year to mature and grow. The children will be intentionally led through a variety of learning experiences which were developed to expose children to a broad range of concepts, encourage motor skill development and foster excitement for learning. Building on the 4-year-old curriculum, activities will be more extensive in terms of pre-math skills (introduction to addition), pre-reading (sight words) and scientific activities. The program moves quickly, and increased learning is expected. All activities are evaluated on the based-on age appropriateness and engagement by the children.
