The SoulShine story starts in 2008 when Shannon Smith embraced a change to the definition of childcare. After years of working for “traditional” daycare providers, Shannon realized that the focus wasn’t on nurturing the whole child.
She decided to create a place where the child lives in the heart of a holistic, nurturing environment that also nurtures the earth's environment.
From its humble, grass roots beginning with just 20 families, SoulShine has blossomed into a thriving community of more than 200 families.
SoulShine strives to respect the ecosystem we all live in. We are all connected and working together for the greater good of our children and our community. SoulShine’s permaculture-inspired curriculum seeks to integrate human activity with natural surroundings, creating self-sustaining ecosystems. From the locally sourced food we provide, to every nature-inspired activity they experience, SoulShine continues its mission to teach the next generation of children, so they will be community-focused, culturally responsible and compassionate agents of change.Job description
