Welcome to Sonshine Place Preschool here at Greendale MB Church in Chilliwack, BC.  As an integral part of GMB Church, the preschool emphasizes Christian principles and teachings as children interact and engage in activities centered on living and learning. Our focus is to provide children with age appropriate opportunities for spiritual, emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth. Children will grow through play, stories, learning centers, Bible lessons, music, and arts and crafts.


The curriculum is a combination of free play and group activities guided by a qualified Teacher and Teaching Assistant.  Curriculum areas include art, music and movement, gross and fine motor development, socialization, language development, number usage, and letter and sound recognition.


The program includes Bible stories and songs.  Christian ideas are not viewed as a subject apart from our daily living, but rather as the way to live and work together.
