8 months - 12 months

Growth and transition are key elements in the Sunshines class where children engage in stimulating activities to encourage  exploration of  the world around them. Nurturing teachers guide older infants through sensory discoveries, gross motor development, social interaction, and cognitive development.  Children are encouraged to listen to books and participate in music and movement classes to stimulate brain development and strengthen core muscle groups. Daily record keeping is an integral part of the Sunshines program.
