The Sonshine Kids Child Development Center
The Sonshine Kids Child Development Center is a ministry of Flower Mound United Methodist Church designed to provide a loving, nurturing environment for all God's children ages 18 months through Kindergarten. We encourage children to develop the fun of learning through spiritual, emotional, social and academic growth. We provide quality preschool and Kindergarten education in a Christian environment. This encourages success through an atmosphere that affirms each student as a capable, significant child of God.

Our Sonshine Kids toddler and two-year-old program is as busy as your toddlers are! All students will experience school-wide chapel and music and P.E. classes in addition to many hands-on activities in the classroom. Our curriculum is Biblically-based and Christian principals are taught daily. We use both large and small group instruction. We have a very low student-teacher ratio of 8:2 for the Toddler Class and 10:2 for the Two Year Old Classes. This allows for every student to get the direction and attention they need to succeed in learning.
"Sonshine Kids continues to prepare my children for elementary school while also providing them with a fun, loving and safe environment. The teachers are wonderful and my children have learned so much while attending school here! My oldest son started kindergarten this year and has known everything they are learning already. Sonshine Kids really got him off to a great start! I really feel like he’s ahead of the curve. Thank you!”

"Sonshine Kids has provided my children with an excellent start to their years of schooling. The nurturing, creative, academic environment is a perfect blend for preschool aged children. Additionally the values-based curriculum focusing on Christian beliefs and values reinforces the lessons that we are trying to teach in our home. I have recommended Sonshine Kids Preschool to many of my friends and give Sonshine Kids my 100% support!!”

"Our daughter has grown tremendously, both in academics and character, in Sonshine kids Kindergarten class. We sought out a private Kindergarten because we were unsure whether our daughter was ready for Kindergarten. This class, with two fabulous teachers to twelve kids, has exceeded our expectations. Our only regret is that she didn’t attend this school all her preschool years."
