Creating a better workday for all.

HEART-FORWARD, LEGACY-FOCUSED

What started as a modest idea and became a growing community.

In 2006, founder Shannon Smith-SengStack and a small group of parents opened a new creative space for the community, offering a unique, heart-forward, eco-aware approach to learning and development for their children.
 

Today, SoulShine has evolved into an expansive educational organization with four locations, providing infant, preschool, pre-k, and school-aged education and care.
 

This adjustment mainly involves adding some connecting words to enhance the overall flow. Overall, your message effectively conveys the growth and values of SoulShine.
