Our Mission:To integrate Christian principles into a kindergarten readiness curriculum so that each child may know Christ as Savior and grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically and cognitively.
Every Child is Precious

Teachers Provide Quality and Fun
Our teachers prepare a fun environment where children learn through exploration and discovery. Our qualified, experienced teachers guide our students to meet developmental milestones. We benchmark ourselves against the Minnesota Department of Education Early Learning Standards.
Curriculum
Funshine preschool's implementation of the Creative Curriculum is used to meet the educational needs of our students. This is a comprehensive, researched curriculum framework that has provided results for generations of children. It was chosen for Funshine Preschool because it honors creativity and respects the role that individual teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant.
