As a former Sunshine employee, I can say with confidence this particular facility is the best on in SCV! Keelan, the assistant director is a God send, she is so attentive to the kids needs and takes special interest in making sure they have a great experience when away from their parents. Overall, I give them a 10 out of 10 for how they handled Covid, distance learning and the migration back to on campus learning. They were flexible, patient and really just put the kids first always. The teachers in my daughter's class are very attentive and call me at least once a month to give a progress report or learn what they can do better for her. The only downside is, it can be a bit pricey. I think the service they provide is worth every penny! I LOVE Sunshine!

It's hard not to boast about Sunshine! Seriously. My daughter wakes up literally every morning (including weekends) and asks if she gets to go to school! That right there is proof she LOVES going which makes us happy and content parents. It makes it easier to let go at drop offs, knowing she is in a loving and nurturing environment with her peers. One of my many favorite things Sunshine offers is Kids Reports. I love getting DAILY photos, notifications, and reminders on this app. Since I can't go in her classroom, it makes me feel involved in a sense. I love seeing the activities the teachers prepare and the lesson plans they implement as well. Ms. Cassie and Ms. Kathy make a wonderful team together. My daughter talks about her day and how much she loves going all the time. I know I sound like a typical parent who loves their child's school, but I also know how important it is to leave your child with people you trust. Sunshine keeps their facility safe, clean, and welcoming. I never worry or doubt their staff. If you're looking for a preschool or after school facility, please consider here.

Thank you to Sunshine Learning Center- North Valencia for taking such good care of our son through this pandemic. I know looking for a preschool to take good care of your child is scary right now since everything is so different. I have the most trust in this school and know they are doing everything in their power to keep the children and staff healthy. The classrooms and school is very clean and organized. The teachers go above and beyond with their classrooms and make it so cute and fun for the kids. My son comes home everyday telling me how much fun he had and how much he loves Ms. Mariana and Ms. Amanda. I can't thank Ms. Keelan, Ms. Jackie, Ms. Shannon, and Mr. Ryan for my smooth pick ups and drop offs everyday. If you are looking for a clean, loving, fun learning environment sunshine is the place to be.

THE BEST Preschool in SCV. Hands down. I have tried a couple preschools with my kids and I am so glad we decided on Sunshine. They are extremely safe with COVID precautions and are very transparent with it as well. The staff is warm and friendly and the teachers are incredible. I honestly wish I found sunshine sooner.
