Language Skills

On a daily basis the Sonshine Ark sees most of our students. During the early years of a child’s life, the child learns the most. It has become our priority to make sure that all of our students are given the equal opportunity to learn language skills especially in our younger classes. Students are not only exposed to English, they are also exposed to some Spanish. 


Social Skills​

Providing a healthy social environment for our students is important to us. We find that children who grow up in healthy social environments are more likely to be successful members of the community. It is one of our top priorities to make sure that our students are given an environment where they can develop their social skills as well as communication skills.
