I love Sunshine House. I really don't know how else I could describe my feelings for them. My daughter is currently in their care and has been for the past 2 1/2 years. During this time, I have never felt disappointed or unhappy with them. My daughter is really getting the best care that money can buy and more. The center is very family oriented and treat the children as such. It is a warm center with very kind and knowledgeable teachers. They introduce the children to many different learning opportunities and activities. At age 4, she is already writing her name and spelling words. I am confident that she will be well prepared for Kindergarten with the continued prep from Sunshine house teachers. As for individual attention, I never feel that she has ever lacked this. She has developed very close relationships with all of her teachers and many of the children. The teachers are very attentive to any concerns that I have and are more than open to suggestions or ideas. I often recommend Sunshine House to my friends and do so with confidence that if they chose to go there, they'd be just as happy as I am.
Both my sons attend Sunshine House. My oldest has attended for 10 months and my youngest for 2. The teachers are always friendly and they are great with the kids. I feel confident leaving my boys at Sunshine House because I know they will play and learn in a stimulating environment. My oldest only attends a few hours a day but they helped me potty train him and it only took 1 week (he was 3 1/2 at the time). He is 4 now and he knows how to spell his name, can tell you his address and I taught him my phone number. I would definitely recommend Sunshine House to any parent.
I am sorry to see the one parents review with only 3 stars, when all of our other reviews are 5. Obviously, we were off the mark with our communication with this family and we sincerely apologize. The situation they speak to is one of meeting licensing ratios. Licensing allows 12 students per one teacher. We staff 10 students per teacher. Given that, we are not allowed by law to have too many children in one teacher's area of supervision, nor would we do that because it is not safe. Unfortunately this parent did not feel comfortable coming and speaking to us about the situation. That's our bad and again, we apologize! Please read our other reviews and tour with us :)
My child has been going to Sunshine House for over a year now. I feel we have joined a family not just enrolled in a school. We receive daily anticdotes from the teachers. On the weekends my son asks to go back to Sunshine House. Outside of school in big group situations he is confident, out going, verbal, and caring. I know that being at this school has helped grow those skills. He constantly is doing things we have not taught him that he learned from school. For example Signing the letter "a" and word "milk". I love that multiple spaces are open for him to choose from. He is able to decide on his own to play in the dress up room, art room, bike area, sand box and more. Finding the perfect place for our child was a hard decision, I am confident Sunshine House is the right place for him.
