Welcome to Sonshine Children’s Centre!
We’ve been providing quality, family-centered childcare since 2007 for children 9 months to 5 years of age.
At Sonshine Children’s Centre, we see ourselves more than a daycare; we’re an extension of your family. We believe that working with families in a cooperative manner is the best approach for developing each child’s personal sense of dignity and self-worth. Families are always welcome to observe, help, and participate in their child’s program.
It is our mission to provide quality childcare and early education in a safe and supportive environment where young children can grow in mind, body, and spirit. Children learn and practice life skills of kindness, safety, respect, and responsibility in a warm, loving and stimulating environment. We see each child as unique, precious, and created in the image of God.
Our vision is twofold and looks at the present and the future. For the present, we want to partner with families and commit to helping every child shine brightly in all areas of child development. For the future, it is our desire to have our families warmly look back at their experience with us, and see it as a cherished part of their child’s upbringing.
Come visit us at 320 10th Avenue, the “Yellow House” beside the Alliance Church, behind Sobey’s in Invermere, give us a call at 250.341.6224, or contact us for more information.
