A Special Note to Our Preschool Families:
As some of you may already be aware, our administrator Lois Griffin's husband went into cardiac arrest on Friday night, July 11, and he passed away on Tuesday evening, July 15.
A memorial service will be held at Parma Heights Baptist Church on Tuesday, July 22 at 11:00am with visitation at the church from 9:30am until time for the service. Please plan to arrive early, as we are expecting many people coming to express their sympathy to the family.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Benevolent Fund at the church and will be used to meet the needs of the family due to the unexpected loss of Mike.

Let the "Son" Shine!
Here is a glimpse of “son”shine as experienced at this non-profit, self-supporting Christian preschool for 3 through 5 year olds:
We are licensed by the state of Ohio and supervised by Parma Heights Baptist Church. We believe our purpose is to help children prepare for kindergarten through a variety of activities and learning experiences.
We want each child to become excited about learning and develop a strong self-image, which will help him strive and work to overcome obstacles. Each day offers opportunities for success and growth.
Class starts with freeplay and a craft. After clean-up, we say the Pledge of Allegiance and pray.
In circle time we choose the day’s special helpers. A story or singing together helps the children work in a group and learn the self-control of sitting quietly and waiting for a turn to participate.
Snack is a favorite time. We provide water to drink and the snack unless a child wants to bring a special treat for birthday or because he has baked at home with Mom. We choose water because it is good for the children and often a “new” beverage to them.
After a brief rest on the rug, the class may exercise, go to the gym, or move into group time with Bible story or academic lesson.
An important part of their learning is an awareness of God – that He created them, loves them, and wants to be part of their lives. What awesome security to share with a child—that he is uniquely special to God.
The school year moves quickly from mid-September to the end of May. We enjoy getting to know our families and work hard to help the children develop a respect for one another, their parents, themselves, and the Lord.
We give them the security of structure in the classroom and the fun of play and academic learning. We consider it a privilege to serve the community through Sonshine Preschool.
