Sunrise Preschool - Learn While you Play!
Sunrise Preschool is a non-profit preschool, first established in 1974 in beautiful Parksville, B.C.
Our philosophy says it all - "Learn While You Play". Registration to all for the 2016/2017 school year opens February 1, so please do find all the details and forms you may need on our registration page. We encourage children to socialize within the group, respect one another, share and be considerate of friends. Our goals for our children are to encourage them to enjoy nature and the environment, learn age-appropriate skills, recognize numbers and letters, colours and shapes, enjoy stories and rhymes and songs, learn about music through dance and instruments, learn life skills such as health and safety issues, participate in arts and crafts and creative fun projects, and enjoy the outdoor playground. Parent involvement is encouraged. Sharing ideas, hopes and values with staff creates a circle of trust and friendship, and we have an open door policy - please visit when you have a moment!

The topic of guiding children's behaviour is of interest to a variety of individuals who care for children. An understanding of the basic principles and practices related to guiding children's behaviour serve as a foundation for interacting successfully with children.
The Canadian Government's booklet on Guiding Behaviours promotes strategies and techniques that reinforce requirements in the Community Care Facility Act and Child Care Licensing Regulation.
