As a ministry of First United Methodist Church, Sonshine Preschool focuses on laying a spiritual foundation while developing each unique child.


While using a Biblically-based, age appropriate curriculum, experiences are provided to meet the children's needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, and most importantly, spiritual. Different levels of ability, development, and learning styles are expected, accepted, and used to design appropriate activities.


Children of families presently enrolled and members of First United Methodist, Opelika will have priority registration during the week of February 8th. Open registration will begin February 16th. Children are placed in classes according to their age group. Children must be the proper age for their class by September 2nd of the year for which they register. Four year olds must be potty trained.
School hours are from 8:45am until 1:00pm.
School meets every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Class sizes are small with a teacher and an assitant teacher in every classroom.
We follow the Opelika city schools calendar as closely as possible.


The registration fee is $160.00 per child. It is non-refundable. This covers all student supplies, a preschool tee shirt, and supplies for special events.

Rate for one child: $160.00 per month.
Rate for a second child: $150.00 per month.
Total for two children: $310.00 per month.
