We Welcome you and your Family to Explore our Reggio Inspired Environments.
LSH has two locations in Long Beach. Little Sunshine House at Linden is located at 525 7th Street servers families with children 2 months to Kindergarten. Little Sunshine House at Rose is located at 1814 7th Street and serves families with children age 2 years to Kindergarten.
Take a moment to get to know us and let us know how we can help. We are happy to provide a rich environment for families now with children age 2 months to entering Kindergarten.
At Little Sunshine House we provide the best care and early education to young children. We draw inspiration from the Reggio approach, as well as, from current research.
It is our desire to provide a balance of intellectual stimulation, emotional support and physical nurturance for your child.
Our indoor and outdoor environments offer opportunities for learning through art, science, literacy, dramatic play, small and large motor activities.
Children spend time in mixed age group and small peer groups. The benefits of mixed age groups include:
developing skills in helping others
teaching and learning from other children
In mixed age groups children often develop or try new roles which leads to a sense of positive self-regard. In addition, in mixed age groups, children’s language and understanding of social rules develops and they learn important life skills.
In small group children learn with their peer group curriculum relevant to their development. The literature, music, songs, and activities in small group provide a scaffold to more complex learning throughout the day.
While it may look like ‘play’ it is our philosophy that experimentation, exploration and questioning are the natural mode of learning for the young child. In play the mind is always busy.
