In 1973, a group of mothers joined together to start a co-operative nursery school for their community. They had an initial enrollment of just 20 children. Since then Sunshine Heights has evolved into a full-time Child Care centre which continues to offer full-time and part-time care to accommodate the needs of our community. At present, we are licensed to provide these quality services to 73 children between the ages of 4 months to 6 years.
While there have been many changes through the years, one thing remains the same – we are still a non-profit co-operative day care centre. This means that we require the active participation of parents to set the long-range and day-to-day mandates of the educational process within the day care. You have a say in your child’s academic, social and emotional development. A parent participating co-operative day care is also one in which parents reduce the operating cost of the day care by administering its business aspects. Since we are a non-profit organization, the savings are passed along to the parents by way of reduced fees. You have a say in the cost of day care.
