Sonshine helps prepare your child for Elementary School success!!!


Sonshine Christian Preschool is an Early Childhood Ministry of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and was founded in 1998 as a ministry for children within HTLC, New Prague and surrounding communities.  Our preschool program is open to all who are looking for a quality Christian preschool experience for their child.

We offer classes that emphasizes the social and emotional components of each child’s development as well as allowing them to freely explore, inquire, and learn about the love of God and Jesus through bible stories, songs, prayer, and other activities.

Our class emphasis focuses on Kindergarten readiness in the areas of literacy, math, and handwriting, while continuing to enhance their spiritual awareness of God and Jesus in their world. Special Stimulating Maturity through Accelerated Readiness Training (SMART) equipment is introduced, which is further used in the children’s grade school years. Sonshine has made technology available to each child by integrating iPad mini’s to enhance their understanding of the curriculum.

Our classes run September thru May, following the District 721 school calendar as closely as possible.  Enrollment is open, as per state mandate, to all children at least 33 months old that are fully potty trained.
