Our Story


~ A Letter to Parents ~


Thank you for your interest in Ms. Linnie's Sunflower Preschool. At present our pre-school is opened to children of ages 2 1/2 - 5 1/2. 

The primary goal of education is to instill in children a life-long love of learning and to help children meet their highest potential. Established in 2006, Sunflower Preschool is inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s inner reflection of a child.


We are accredited and continue to evolve as a school that embraces a passionate way of learning.

Miss Linnies Sunflower Preschool in Capistrano Beach

We currently have more than 20 students (pre-kindergarten through first grade) and 4 faculty/staff. Our curriculum includes science, math, and a strong music program, story telling, movement, hand work, painting, crayon coloring, sewing, woodworking, dance, and other subjects to provide a well-rounded education. We also have pet bunnies, chickens, turtles and plenty of garden creatures! The children just love their pets at school and they get to help with the feeding and care of the animals if they wish.


People are drawn to our school because of our attention to each child’s spirit and imagination as well as his/her intellect, the community atmosphere, and the integration of the arts and nature throughout the curriculum among many other reasons.


This is an exciting time in the life of our school. We have a dream to expand to a larger campus that has a large garden space, several trees that surround, fields for games and sports, a library, music and Yoga rooms, and other facilities which support the curriculum.


Please come to one of our special events, or call the school. We'd be happy to show you around.



Warm Regards,


Ms. Linnie Thomas
