The Sunshine House

SPONSORED [email protected] 17 locations, Upstate, SC

Offers: Educational childcare, preschool and after school programs for children 6 weeks to 12 years old.

Your child’s foundation for learning is built in these early years, so their preschool focuses on providing a solid grounding in the skills needed for Kindergarten — school readiness, social, emotional and intellectual development, literacy, confidence, critical thinking, and more.

They use the nationally-recognized, award-winning Creative Curriculum®. They supplement this with Seeds of Literacy, their literacy, self-esteem, and character development program, along with Spanish and sign language.

They’ve implemented extensive health and safety practices, including face masks, temperature checks and health screenings, limited classroom access, regular sanitizing and more. All their schools are licensed, which means they meet or exceed strict state standards, such as staff-to-child ratios, background checks, and sanitation practices.

At The Sunshine House, your preschooler will build a strong educational and social foundation — with all the fun of childhood mixed in!

Both of our daughters have attended The Sunshine House since they were 6 months old. The faculty and administration are attentive, knowledgeable, and responsive to our needs as a family. This is more than a daycare, it is preschool from day one. Children get a huge head start by attending, and will enter kindergarten with social skills and academic abilities beyond what you’ll find elsewhere with this kind of program.

    The Franklin School is missing. It’s a brand new program. It’s a public/private partnership, but there are private slots available to the community.

    Also, you should let people know about Spartanburg Quality Counts, a voluntary rating and improvement system for preschool programs. Parents should know the quality of programs they choose for their children.
