    Our Curriculum
  • Experienced Teachers

    Many of our teachers have been at Sunshine for more than twenty years, and started as parents bringing their children to school. As their children grew up and moved on to elementary school, they found themselves reluctant to leave this warm, nurturing community!

Our licensed childcare center has served as the only semi-cooperative preschool in Arlington since it opened at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in 1957. The founders wanted to establish a school where the parents would be welcomed and involved in their child’s first years of school. As a semi-cooperative preschool, Sunshine Nursery School recognizes the importance of parent involvement, and each family is invited to assist in the classroom several times throughout the year.
