The Story of SoulShine

SoulShine was launched by a small group of parents who came together, seeking a heart-forward, eco-aware approach to learning and development for our children.

When we launched our modest afterschool program in 2006, I could not have imagined that a decade later SoulShine would grow to become the expansive educational organization that is today โ€“ offering private pre-school, infant care, daycare, after-school, summer school, and specialty camps, with multiple locations in service to over 100 families.

Just as in the beginning, SoulShineโ€™s ethos remains steadfast: We believe children are our greatest investment in the future.

Traditional daycare focuses primarily on the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and while these are vital subjects, they alone are not enough to develop well-rounded, healthy, happy children, prepared for life and success.
