Our goal is to provide an environment in which children experience that learning is fun and exciting. We utilize a curriculum that enables children to develop school readiness skills! We are committed to helping your family learn, grow and thrive. Our students can cook pretend feasts in the small kitchen, paint pictures at the easels, or dress up with friends at the costume trunks. They can delve their hands into sand or other delights at the sensory table, cozy up to a book on our bright shape carpet, or climb up the rungs on our mini jungle gym. Small circular tables encourage working together in groups, and yellow walls make our space cheery even on cloudy days. The Y Preschool Program is successful because of the extraordinary people who make it all happen each day. Co-Teacher Katelynn Campbell joined us this year.

Sunshine Corner oh its jolly fine. All are welcome seats are given free. Redcar Sunshine Corner is the place for me. How many times have local people sung that, and thought where does that come from? Sunshine Corner was a place on Redcar Beach from through to , where young and old, went along for entertainment and of course a religious service. The Sunshine Corner was a popular entertainment, and consisted of a wooden stage, with a corrugated sheet roof over. Although a simplistic stage, it stood many a good high tide, and was always in action soon afterwards. For several years, Mr.
It was held on Sunday afternoons and evenings during the summer months of the mid s on the beach at Roker. It was led by members of an evangelistic mission and aimed primarily at children. A small stage, sheltered by a windbreak, provided the setting. Large crowds of children gathered around while their parents were usually seated on deck chairs behind them. The main leader was William Harvey known as Uncle Will who lived in Kirkstone Avenue in Fulwell and regularly preached throughout the country during the winter. Uncle Will sang and played popular hymns on his piano-accordion, inviting the children on stage to sing solos. The children eagerly listened to Bible stories whilst sitting in the sunshine. Sunshine Corner usually began in early June and lasted until September. Children very soon knew most of the hymns and songs off by heart. The tent was pitched on the site on which the Seaburn Hotel today The Marriott would later be built.
A few have been added by people who attended other Sunday Schools as indicated. If you can remember selling booklets of Sunny Smiles and Methodist Sunday School scripture exams, you will probably know most of these songs. Come, let us remember The joys of the town, Gay cars and bright buses That go up and down. Shop windows and playgrounds And swings in the park, And street lamps that twinkle In rows after dark. And let us remember The chorus that swells From hooters and hammers And whistles and bells; From fierce-panting engines And clear-striking clocks, And sirens of vessels Afloat in the docks.
