The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best through play and hands on activities. We offers a well-rounded curriculum based on free play, group and individual activities.

The Rominger'sI am so grateful for the care my children received at Funshine! From day one, both kids loved coming to Funshine. They loved all their teachers, the programs, the field trips, and all their little friends here. Doug and I never had to worry. The love, caring and compassion of the teachers always made them (and us) feel welcome. I’ve recommended Funshine to many parents over the years and will continue to do so. The teachers work so hard and teach them so much. Jack and Audrey were both well-prepared for Kindergarten (although Aud would be happy to stay here forever!) Thank you so much!
RosinaFunshine is a perfect blend of professionalism and loving care. The Director(s) are constantly checking on classrooms and the teachers are innovative with curriculum. Most importantly, our children are happy to go to school each day!
The Miller FamilyAll of my children, now 10, 8 and 7 attended Funshine. The teachers genuinely cared for each of my children. We went back to visit and my children were able to visit with all of their old preschool teachers. They were just as loving as I remembered and greeted us with warm hugs, old pictures and great stories. I miss my Funshine family and will be sure to visit more often. I highly recommend Funshine for the following reasons: Caring Teachers, Loving Atmosphere, Educational Environment (my children were well prepared for 1st grade and thrived socially), Professional Staff, Clean Facility (with plenty of natural sunlight and a new mural), music, Spanish and gymnastic classes
The Mohler'sMr. DeWayne's Pre-K program could not have prepared my son any better for Kindergarten! He learned to read and complete basic book reports before leaving Funshine. Miss Wendy is very gifted at understanding each child as a unique individual and prides herself on preparing them for Pre-K .
Sheri WoodFunshine offers a safe environment to leave your child with no worries while you are at work. There are small student/teacher ratios so everyone knows you as well as your child. The caring, trusting, and friendsly staff keeps my 4 year old wanting to go back to preschool daily, she loves going! My child loes her teachers/staff, and fun and creative learning experiences. I also like the extra's for example; field trips, book mobile library, Soccer Shots program and the Holiday Park program.
