Our Mission

Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children promotes early identification and intervention for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and helps them develop their maximum potential through listening, spoken language and literacy.

Our Core Beliefs

We believe that children who are deaf or hard of hearing can learn to listen and talk if early identification, appropriate amplifications, and  intervention take place. We follow the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention 1-3-6 model.

We believe that all children can learn in a stimulating environment led and encouraged by educated, dedicated teaching staff.

We believe that the participation of parents and their partnership with the school are critical to the success of the child.
