Publix Partners for Children’s Sunshine School

What is the Sunshine School?

School plays a significant role in every child or adolescent’s life. When a child is hospitalized, it interrupts normal routine. As part of our family-centered care at Children’s of Alabama, the hospital offers a free, school-based program to provide educational support of patients with medical and behavioral health needs. The Junior League of Birmingham Sunshine allows our patients to have some greatly needed normalization by providing structure and distraction of illness. Our program shows children and adolescents that they can expect to return to normal events and have opportunities to be creative and productive while maintaining a sense of identity and hope during hospitalization.
