Valencia Preschool and Child Care
As parents ourselves, we understand that choosing the best educational child care for your child is one of the hardest decisions you have to make. By providing an environment for your child where they can grow and thrive, we are confident that Sunshine Learning Centers in Valencia, California is the best preschool you can choose.
At Sunshine Learning Centers we integrate the most important elements in any child care or preschool – giving your child a fun educational experience and care from an amazing team of teachers. Combined, the value our preschool offers is unparalleled. We extend our school’s value by including enrichment classes such as Spanish, Sports, and Technology without additional fees.
To give you a better idea about all that our school has to offer we are excited to introduce you to Ryan Gleeson, our Preschool Director at Sunshine Learning Centers in Valencia, California.
My name is Ryan Gleeson and I am the Director at Sunshine Child Care and Learning Center in North Valencia. I have been part of the Sunshine family since 1995. I have been a director with Sunshine for over 10 years. I absolutely love and enjoy my job each and every day.
Sunshine is set apart by its three foundational pillars to our program; academics, socialization and character development. We want a child to be ready for kindergarten on every level and we have found that this approach does just that! Our curriculum encourages reading and math readiness, creativity, problem solving, fine motor skills and peer interaction. Our academic curriculum is second to none, and our pre-kindergarteners are consistently the jewel of every kindergarten classroom they are in. The character program includes monthly character traits and moral principles that are introduced and reinforced on a daily basis. We have found that children have learned best and respond positively when learning is made fun and boundaries are clearly defined. Our Pre-K computer program introduces general skills and we are the only preschool in the Santa Clarita Valley with a Smartboard!
We maintain no more than 9:1 student/teacher ratios, most schools operate at 12:1.
At Sunshine Child Care and Learning Centers, we believe that each child is a special gift, entrusted to our care by their parents. Each day, opportunities for exploratory learning are built into the preschool program schedule. Enthusiastic and dynamic teachers open a world of learning that children love to explore. We provide a positive, loving, controlled environment where children beg to come back… not an atmosphere of negativity where “don’t” and “stop” are prevalent words. Sunshine Child Care and Learning Center is designed to champion children to grow intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically, by cultivating a lifetime love of learning. Our philosophy emphasizes honoring God and our country, cultivating the importance of family and the community, instilling core values that make a difference in your child’s life.
