Testimonials

Crystal Chouinard

“Before my son started going to Sunshine, he was shy and uncertain about himself. He didn't talk much and I had a hard time getting him to participate in activities with other kids. At Sunshine, he has gained confidence in himself and has developed amazing social skills. He now loves to participate in activities and has the confidence to try new things and discover his world with excitement. He is overall just a happier kid. I love the balance that Sunshine has developed between letting a kid be a kid and just having some free play time with having structure and quality learning in a class environment. At Sunshine, kids can be goofy, loud and messy but they also get some structured class time with quality educated teachers.”

“We were new to Laurel and didn't know many people so when my grandma was no longer able to keep him full time I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I was referred to Sunshine by an ex-employee. I toured the facility and was impressed with not only the program but the staff as well. The very first day that I left Zander at your facility I was a little bit apprehensive. He ran in and immediately started to play. When I left I had tears in my eyes. I am not sure if it was because I was leaving him with Strangers or that he wasn't going to miss me like I had thought. When I came to pick him up he was happy and also excited to come back the next day. Then I knew the tears were more of joy, as I knew my son was in the right place. Thank you for all you do for our children. I am so grateful for you all!”

“Both my kids have developed physically since we moved them to Sunshine. The outdoor play development, especially, has been tremendous.”

“I love the changes I have seen in my son since he's been spending three days/week @ Sunshine's preschool program! He is more assertive and confident. I am convinced Kindergarten will be an easy transition.”

“Both of our children have attended the Sunshine Academy. The staff is loving and cares for each individual child as if their own. The teachers at Sunshine prepare the students with educational standards to help them transition from preschool to pre-k and on into kindergarten. The entire program helps lay a solid educational foundation for each child to succeed in school. We absolutely love the staff and how they not only get to know the children, they also get to know that parents. The staff genuinely cares for each child!”

When moving to the area my biggest concern was care for my kids. Sunshine took away that concern and is providing an environment that I appreciate and he enjoys going to!

Our kids are happy and enjoy going there every day! We love the hours that our kids can go because it works with our schedule and the people that work there are truly amazing! There is no words to describe how amazing this facility is! We have been so happy with our boys progress and most of all they work great with our family!

I feel like Sunshine is preparing our kids for kindergarten. The creative projects that teach fine motor skills, science and alphabet/word recognition are key to childhood development. My husband and I both work outside the home and we would not have had time to teach these skills at home. Sunshine teachers make learning fun and we enjoying hearing what each class is working on for the month!

Sunshine has a great preschool program. The children are actively engaged in age-appropriate learning and activities throughout the day. I would not trust anyone else with my child.
