Sunshine State Academy offers full-time and part-time programs for children age one through five, including VPK. This Gold Seal, APPLE accredited school has been serving families in the Hollywood area since 2009. It’s open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, with after-care. The school strives to be “a place where learning is created through hands-on individualized instruction.”

Educational philosophy and administration

Sunshine State Academy uses its own customized curriculum, involving a multilingual, research-based approach that has been “shown to develop higher IQ levels in youngsters.” The curriculum “provides children with opportunities to construct knowledge and meaning through active, hands-on exploration in a variety of settings, which include small group, individual and partner activities.” Lesson plans are designed to develop skills in these nine categories: social/emotional; physical; language; cognitive; literacy; mathematics; science and technology; social studies; and the arts. Children can also sign up for soccer, yoga and dance classes. Owner Cindy Goldberg and Director Olesya Khodasevich lead the staff at Sunshine State Academy. Parents praise the entire team, describing them as “kind,” “caring” and “accommodating.” One parent was “impressed by [the] level of education teachers are providing.” The school takes security seriously, requiring parents to scan their fingerprint to enter the campus and monitoring it with security cameras.
