Ryan Gleeson, Director
I started my career in Early Childhood Education at Sunshine over 20 years ago. I have worked as an After School Counselor, Lead Teacher, Director and Regional Director. I have been the Director of Sunshine North Valencia for the last 10 years.
I met my wife at Sunshine almost 20 years ago and have three children who are now all Sunshine graduates! I live and breathe Sunshine and I am so proud of what we have accomplished in the lives of young children over the last two decades in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Taylor McClure, Assistant Director
Hello! My name is Miss Taylor. I am the Preschool Assistant Director here at Sunshine. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Child and Adolescent Development from CSUN. In 2004, I started in Sunshine’s after school program and quickly realized my love of teaching. Shortly after, I became a preschool teacher here at Sunshine! I taught preschool for 10 years before stepping into the role of Assistant Director. I absolutely love welcoming new families into our Sunshine Family!
My husband and I have three young children who also attend Sunshine. We love taking our family to museums and spending lazy days at the beach!
Denton Novick, After School Director
My name is Denton Novick and I have worked in early childhood education for 8 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development and hope to start on my master's in the near future. I started at Sunshine as an After School Counselor and then became a driver shortly after. I worked my way up to Lead Counselor and now I am the Director of the After School Program.
I met my wife 14 years ago and have been married for 7. We have two beautiful children who both currently go to Sunshine. My wife also works in the field of early childhood education and has a master's in the subject. We both love working with children as it is our passion and maybe one day we can pass it on to our children.
