This is a good school / daycare overall. I definitely felt my child was safe here. The rooms are clean, the teachers are friendly, they are organized, and all is professional. I had issues with the price and teaching style of one of the teachers. We have moved to a different classroom due to the first teacher's inability to keep control and discipline over young children. I first hand witnessed children hitting, taking toys from others, yelling, etc. and the teachers were chatting with each other not handling the children. For some parents, this relaxed, "let children be children" attitude is okay, but not for us. My child was coming home complaining of being hit by others very often. I expect my children to respect others and others to respect them and for adults to enforce this. We moved to another classroom and all was great. I asked my child how his first day was in his new classroom and he said: "It was good, nobody hit me today". So, I feel this school is very overpriced and would definitely choose somewhere else if you do not need full time care. BUT, for full time care, this is a good place. Good curriculum too.
Both of my daughters attend Sunnybrook. My 6 year old has been there for 2 years and my 3 year old has been there for about a year and a half. My oldest daughter is in the Kindergarten program there and I LOVE how they strive to exceed VBPS standards. The teachers are great, the administration is great. My 3 year old was going through a very rough spot and having issues in class (tantrums, fits etc) and had to be sent home multiple times because she couldnt function in class as the other children did. Her teachers and the administrators worked so hard for and with me to get her to a great place. She is now a shining star in her class. I cannot say enough great things about Sunnybrook. Even though they are more expensive than some other schools....I would rather pay more to know that my girls are in the hands of people like them. They arent just our teachers and administrators....to us they are family.
at first glance very good school, with own cook, many playgrounds, licensed. However the high price does not mean high quality. 1 of our 2 teachers (2 teachers build a team) is a total loss - very unfriendly and from our perspective unqualified and too old. She (#2) does not know basic rules politeness and is bad support for teacher #1. We are very disappointed. Teacher #1 is overextended because of poor support from teacher #2 which impacts on overall child care. We witnessed teacher #1 playing with smartphone several times during class, not observing kids. Center of gravity is definitely licensing, but not with providing a warm and friendly environment for the kids. Did see the principal several times already with little success. Our neighbor #1 is also discontent with school, neighbor #2 has better luck with the teachers. There are very good teachers at this school, but we are less fortunate with our team. We definitely cannot recommend this facility. High price, poor service, and much room for improvement.
