New Facility

Situated on a sunny lawn surrounded by trees on a rise above Easthampton Road, Sunnyside has five classrooms, each of which has big windows, child-sized tables and chairs, a reading corner, art supplies and easels, age-appropriate playthings, books, and dress-up clothes. Our roomy indoor playground with play structures allows children to stretch their legs and move about freely, regardless of the weather. On most days, children spend time outdoors in the gated outdoor play areas, and also on teacher led exploration of Sunnyside's eight acres of outdoor space.
