Sunshine Day Nursery

TRUNK OR TREATPlease join us on Sunday, October 28th from 3pm-5pm for our first annual trunk or treat community event! This is a collaborative event for GRC and Sunshine Day Nursery School and will take place in the parking lot of the Christian Education Building. Cars will be parked with their trunks open, fully decorated, ready to hand out candy to excited trick-or-treaters! Inside Chilton Hall there will be activities and refreshments. We are looking for volunteers to decorate their trunks and pass out candy. Please see Meghan Krug (518-953-6354, for the GRC Trunk sign up list starting September 16th. This event is rain or shine, so please make sure all decorations can be easily moved inside Chilton Hall onto a folding table. No prior registration is required for trick or treaters. We hope to see you there!

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.

Welcome Fall!

The school year is in full swing! We are excited to begin another fun-filled year at Sunshine Day Nursery School. There are some exciting changes coming this year:

  1. We are pursuing a new Eco-Healthy Childcare Endorsement. We are proud to be one of only three early childhood centers in the Capital District to hold this endorsement.
  2. We are now offering a FULL breakfast rather than a breakfast snack. This means breakfast will include fresh fruit along with a grain or protein.
  3. We are now using a continuity of care model in the toddler room. Toddlers will now remain with the same teacher from the time they enroll in Sunshine until they turn 3 years old. This has been shown to have great benefits for both their social and emotional growth.

Half-Day and Full-Day Enrollment

There are still a few spots left in both our Full-Day program and our Half-Day programs.

Please see our website for more details for all our programs.

Information can also be obtained by emailing the office ( or calling at 518-477-4156.

Yankee Candle Fundraiser

Sunshine’s first fundraiser of the year is a Yankee Candle Fundraiser. Please be on the look out for a catalogue full of great gift ideas! Orders come in with plenty of time for Christmas.
