At Sunshine, children can grocery shop, become a vet, build with blocks, play the piano, bounce on a dinosaur, bake a cake and so much more!  Our play areas have been designed to allow children to free play in an open environment where they can grow and develop many skills all while making new friends!  

The Importance of Play

Learning through play is the best because not only does a child LOVE playing they also grow, and develop in SO many ways that are essential for early childhood.

  • Through play, children create and explore a world they can master enhancing their confidence and resiliency.
  • Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.
  • 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.
  • Speech and language are positively impacted with play. 
  • Role playing allows children to mimic real life situations and emphasizes empathy.
