Our Approach

Shine is a small, cozy child care center located in Mt. Airy. We are housed in a  building that was formerly a home and borders on Mt. Ariy Forest. Shine provides holistic, nurturing, nature-based, & child-led care. We provide 2 healthy snacks and a home-made lunch each day.We are Montessori-inspired, but not strictly Montessori. Our teachers create nature-based, play-based curriculum based on the development and the interests of the children in their class.Shine is great primarily because the people who work at Shine are wonderful.  You can learn more about  us and our story here!

What Parents Think

"We have absolutely loved our experience with Shine. Our son has learned so much and I thoroughly trust the teachers with his care. Shine is montessori based and it's been lovely to see our son blossom! They spend so much time outdoors which is great for young kids, and between that, the small size overall, and the remarkable teacher-child ratios (3:1 for toddlers), it's a great place during COVID-19! I love the personal feel of Shine and cannot say enough!"
