Our Extraordinary Learning Environment
SUnshine School is located in a unique setting at the base of the Santa Catalina mountains. Founded on the idea of a one room school, Sunshine is blessed with 10K feet of outside and inside space designed for learning and growing together amongst 60+ children and a faculty of 16.
We believe in age appropriate childhood education. Our teachers adapt the curriculum to fit the needs of our students. We believe in unstructured play, social development, and learning life skills.
Comfort is Critical for Learning
Children need to feel physically, emotionally, and psychologically comfortable for learning to occur.
Enriching Our Curriculum
Visits from guest teachers provide Sunshine with an environment rich in educational opportunities.
Many Sunshiners have kept in touch throughout the years.
About Sunshine School
Since 1984, Sunshine School has loved and educated 3, 4, and 5-year old children in the northwest Tucson neighborhoods. We are a group of educators who offer children a wide array of activities in the areas of cognition, social development, and life skills. Our goal is to develop competent children who are ready to leave Sunshine with confidence and creativity and respect for one-another. Classroom and centers' lessons are taken from our curriculum but presented to suit the needs of individual children. Visits from guest teachers (with lessons in science and Spanish and vocal music and dance, etc) provide Sunshine with an environment rich in educational opportunities.
