SoulShine programs teach sustainability to children

“Founder and owner Shannon Smith said SoulShine is a nontraditional organization that offers daycare, preschool, after school classes, and seasonal camps with an emphasis on connection to the earth. The organization was founded 11 years ago by Smith and a group of dedicated parents who came together to bring the concept to reality. “The community started SoulShine,” Smith said.soulshine-founder-shannon-smith

 

At the time, Smith had been working at another local after school program, and when she decided to part ways and start her own school, a group of roughly 25 parents and their kids followed suit. Over the course of one winter break they came up with the name, found a space, and worked with the city to gain the appropriate permits. The outpouring of support enabled Smith to have a program ready almost immediately, and it was an instant boon to the success of the school.”  For the entire article from Atlanta Intown, go to… http://www.atlantaintownpaper.com/2016/04/soulshine-programs-teach-sustainability-to-children/
