Classes & Ages


Our Preschool is divided into classes based on age, while keeping in mind abilities as well. Classes are taught according to age-appropriate learning methods. The Preschool & Kindergarten curriculum has been created to encourage students to become active participants and lifelong learners. Students are actively engaged at all times while in the classroom. Lesson plans are written to match the class’s abilities and can be adjusted to meet the individual needs of the students. Each month, a new theme is integrated into the daily planned subjects and activities to help create a deeper level of understanding and interconnection.

In our Tinker Club program (extended care), children between the ages of 0 and 3 are introduced to a class routine. The routine is flexible and adjusted to meet the toddlers’ needs. The program introduces students to circle time activities and themes such as calendar, weather, counting, alphabet, shapes, and more.​​​  ​The Tinker Club activities serve as learning experiences and social experiences through play, crafts and exercises. The age-appropriate activities promote taking turns, cooperating, sharing, and appropriately expressing feelings.

Students who join our Afterschool Lab and Studio program are grouped into Explorers (ages: 3-6 years old), Creators (ages: 7-9 years old) and Builders (ages: 10-12 years old).

Healthy School Meals

We all develop food preferences early in life, so it’s important for children to have a variety of appealing, nutritious foods every day. That is why Sunshine Kids Academy has a certified chef prepare our school lunches. Our chef takes nutrition seriously and wants each food experience to be an enjoyable one for our students. Our chef carefully plans a kid-friendly menu every month which is posted on our Facebook page. Each meal is carefully thought out to ensure only nutritious, well-balanced and, most importantly, delicious food makes it onto our students’ plates.
