Only the Best for Your Child
Welcome to The Sunshine School, where we provide quality educational child care with a personal touch. As a home based preschool and child care center, we offer a warm and nurturing environment in which young children can learn and develop.
Our philosophy is that young children learn best through play. Our curriculum encourages our students to explore the world around them while allowing the childrens' ideas and curiosity to guide our activities. With an additional emphasis on the promotion of social development, "sunshine kids" will gain the skills necessary for future academic success.
The Sunshine School provides child care and education to 5 children ages three to five. This 5:2 student to teacher ratio is ideal for little ones as it guarantees significant individual instruction.
Lynne Hempe, the owner/director of the Sunshine School, has been teaching preschool in New Orleans since 1994. Her B.S. degree in Horticulture is the driving force behind our emphasis on gardening and our encouragement of curiosity and respect for the natural world around us.
Julia Hempe, Lynne's daughter and teaching assistant, is an experienced babysitter and is working towards an associates degree in Early Childhood Education.
