Sunshine Cove Preschool 
& School Age Care

About Us

Emma Glendinning and Sarah Dhillon, both founded Sunshine Cove Preschool in 2012, after working together as a team for the previous four years at North Shore Child Care.

Emma completed her Early Childhood Education Certificate in 2008 and Sarah in 2005 from Capilano University in North Vancouver, BC. During the four years of experience together we learned what we believe were valuable skills and stepping stones to knowing what we would like to see in our own school for the future.

We believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. We believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At Sunshine Cove Preschool, we allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. We will encourage all their interests to be engaged and explored thoroughly through fun and interesting program planning. We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, we believe that children need to have fun!

At Sunshine Cove Preschool, we make sure that every child is involved in stimulating activities everyday. And of course, we make sure they have fun! Children learn best when they are having fun! At Sunshine Cove Preschool we recognize that parents have a difficult schedule and support parents the best we can. We offer two options: a two and a half hour morning class and an extended four hour afternoon class. We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents. We strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.

Both of us being the owners and educators pass many rigorous licensing procedures. We are licensed in British Columbia. Our continued professional development through conferences and workshops allows us both to be up to date and open to many different types and levels of experiences to provide inspiration for our program planning. Come by for a tour and experience the difference a little Sunshine Cove Preschool can make for your whole family and child(ren)! We look forward to meeting you and your family!

"Our 3 children have had the wonderful opportunity of being in Emma and Sarah's care over the past 5 years. Our 5.5 year old is off the Kindergarten and she is more than ready! Our 2.5 year old loves "his" school and is always excited for his pre-school days. Emma and Sarah have created a nurturing environment which allows the children to learn at their own pace while being encouraged to explore further. The centre is always clean, organized and the days are full of fun filled activities both inside and outside. Sunshine Cove Pre-school is where play, exploration and discovery mixed with discipline, love, respect and education come together! We have recommended Sunshine Cove to several friends and we will continue to pass along our recommendations!!! We cannot thank Emma and Sarah enough."

"Emma and Sarah were exceptional with my daughter who started their preschool at just 30 months. They provided a wonderful learning environment and did a variety of activities with her daily. I really enjoyed hearing about their wonderful excursions to the water park and deep cove on the Bus. If you want to give your child a fun and fulfilling preschool experience that incorporates both learning and play with exceptional guidance and care this is the school you must choose."

Sunshine cove has been a wonderful preschool for my 4 year old. Emma and Sarah are very caring to the children and keep them busy with lots of activities, indoor and out. The year end play was really fun and obviously a lot of work had been put in to make that happen. My son looks forward to spending time here which is most important.
