Sunshine Day Nursery


Thank you to everyone who came out for our Giffy’s Bar-B-Q fundraiser on 6/5. We appreciate your support! The money raised will help off-set the cost of special events and field trips this summer.


Do you know someone looking for nursery school options for the fall? We’re enrolling for the Half Day Nursery School Program!

The Half Day program is from 8:45 AM – 11:45 AM. We will use the same great learn-through-play curriculum as our full day program. We have 5-day, 3-day, and 2-day options for children 3.5-5 years old.

Check out Sunshine Day Nursery’s NEW website!

Sunshine is a church-sponsored early childhood center committed to meeting the needs of young children and their families.  We are here to offer support to families in need of quality day care service and nursery school experience.

Even though Sunshine goes through the summer, September is still a back-to-school time for us. Some of our friends come back from their vacations and new friends start. There are also a bunch of changes coming to Sunshine this fall! We’re excited to be able to offer different programs to meet the needs of our current families and the community. Other changes include new signs, logo and website. Also, you can now like us on Facebook!
