Our class size is just thirteen children to one teacher, in their individual play and evidence-based classrooms featuring learning areas in science, math, writing, sensory, creative expression, art, snack, blocks and building, music, dramatic play, listening, and library. Students also have the opportunity to use and manipulate iPads, interactive boards, and hand-held application technology, as well as experience many diverse in-house field trips and 4K family programs. Our 4K and child care students have multiple opportunities to serve our New Richmond community, through programs, activities, and service projects.

We would love to meet your family and discuss how Sonshine can meet your child's and your family's educational, social, and emotional needs. Please call or email us to be added to the list for in-person tours, once local health and licensing recommendations allow.

Sonshine features an 8 acre campus including nature path, a sledding/ kite flying hill, vast grassy areas, a large remodeled, accessible playground, and also features outdoor classroom environments, such as outdoor art, basketball and bike track, science, dramatic play, and music centers.

Our 4K and Sonshine Learning Center teachers are trained in early childhood processes, techniques, and methods to truly enhance brain development, growth, and learning activities according to research and evidence based practices:

*S.M.A.R.T. curriculum program

*occupational and environmental teaching, classroom management, and regulation strategies

* alignment with the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards for children ages 0-6, in addition to the state teaching standards for 4K

*the CSEFEL Pyramid Model (as one of a few state of Wisconsin, child care, center-wide Implementation Sites)

*the state of Wisconsin Youngstar program/guidelines as a FOUR STAR facility

*Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scales

All of these strategies work together to provide the highest quality, research-based, academic, social, and emotional environment for your child. *Assessments and scheduled main curriculum are the same across the New Richmond School District 4K sites*

Our 4K teachers continue to be Allison Firestone and Kayla Grender.

Our wrap around teaching team this year, Mrs. Hennlich and Ms. McLaren, work closely with Mrs. Firestone and Mrs. Grender to meet the educational, social, emotional, Sonshine, and district goals of our 4K students. Because our Sonshine team provides continuous care (or looping with the same teacher for multiple years) at all levels, our wrap around teachers for 2021-2022 will be our current 3K teacher, Mrs. Wyatt.
