The Importance of Play
Learning through play is the best because simply a child LOVES to play. Through play they grow, and develop in SO many ways that are essential for early childhood. Our play areas and classes are carefully designed to enhance your child's development. Here are some ways your child will benefit from playing at Sunshine:

Play promotes social skills such as sharing and conflict resolution.
Play offers children the opportunity to fully engage with their parents without distractions.
Children use free play to express their emotions and learn to deal with their fears and scary experiences.
Motor skills (both fine and gross) and hand-eye coordination are learned and encouraged during play.
