"A LEARNING CENTRE WITH THE BEST IN CARE!"
Sunshine is proud to be participating in “Raising the Bar”. A commitment to best practices in Early Learning and Child Care.
We believe that early learning sets the foundation for lifelong leaning, behaviour and health. We offer an inclusive, play based curriculum based on the continuum of development. We recognize that children learn most effectively in an atmosphere of discovery and through a variety of child directed play experiences We believe that positive child -adult interactions are a key component in the learning process.
“There is a need to listen to the children and the seniors in our midst. The former are our future and the latter the means for understanding what our past has been.”
Through the Intergenerational Program, the Sr. Preschool/ Kindergarten class have the opportunity to visit the residents at Sunrise Senior Living of Mississauga. The children and seniors partner together and work on various activities & have a refreshment time. In the process, both generations achieve something beyond the relationship. For the older person, it might be the opportunity to reminisce or to feel like a contributing member of society. For the child, it might be a reason to think beyond his or her small world and make a new friend.
