I am writing to tell you of the marvelous experiences my family has had and continues to have at the Sunshine Wiley preschool campus. All four of our kids have attended Sunshine Wiley!
Our experience started 13 years ago when my husband camped outside the building to make sure our oldest secured a spot to enroll in the fall of 1998. Even back then, the reputation of Sunshine Wiley was worth him camping out overnight!. Sunshine Wiley was such a great place for our oldest to be and she came home every night telling her younger sister how much fun she was having. It was the incentive to attend Sunshine that motivated our second child to finish her potty training … she HAD to get in on the fun.
Our recent experiences at Sunshine Wiley with our younger two children have been just as phenomenal as it was with our older children.
MISS SHIRLEY- Leadership at the Wiley campus is the reason this is the BEST preschool in Santa Clarita. I have seen the camaraderie Miss Shirley promotes within her staff. Her support to these hardworking teachers and her ability to choose them carefully is the reason turnover is so low (in a field with a reputation for turnover) and morale is so high. Not only is she a great leader to the staff, she has been an approachable resource to parents. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sought her guidance on various issues I was being challenged with as a parent.
MISS KRISTA – I’m not sure how she does it but she is as warm and helpful at 7am as she is at 5pm Whether it is bill pay confusion … my endless questions about summer camp … my constant calls requesting to be transferred to my child’s classroom … the list goes on and on … her patience and kindness make me feel like I am the only parent at Sunshine.
MISS AMANDA – This amazing teacher had the questionable fortune to get our most challenging child in her class. I believe Miss Amanda’s talents are the reason our Olivia has done so well in kindergarten. Her mixture of love aqd discipline tamed our “beast” and brought out the best in here To this day Olivia HAS to go get hugs from Miss Amanda every time we are in the building!
MISS BRE – This gifted educator is currently teaching our last Sunshine enrollee and youngest child, Parker. I cannot stress to you how impressed I am at how seriously Miss Bre takes her career as a preschool educator. From pencil grip … to scissor handling … to peer influences … I have come to rely on her insight into Parker’s development.
These are just some highlights from our experience, I could go on and on about:
- How READY our kids were for Kindergarten thanks to the Sunshine curriculum.
- How well the teachers and their assistants work as teams.
- How I have come to know the entire staff by name because they are all so warm and friendly even though my child is not in their classroom.
- How my children tell me “come back later Mommy” because they are having such a good time when I come to pick them up.
- How when I come in here it feels like “home” and not “daycare”.
- How HAPPY all the staff are and how that translates to my HAPPY children!
Sunshine Wiley will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will always be grateful.
Sunshine has been a wonderful place for our children. The teachers are, first and foremost, the mainstay of this excellent preschool. They create a warm and caring environment where children learn academics, social skills and have fun each and every day. The curriculum for each age group allows for children to progress in learning and eventually prepares them for Kindergarten. Our three year old has made some dear friends, adores his teachers and proudly shares with us what he learns every day. Our older son’s Kindergarten teacher complemented him on his preparedness for kindergarten, and we truly attribute this to Sunshine’s pre-K program. He now enjoys Sunshine’s after-school program. Over the years we have met new family friends and enjoy Sunshine’s family-oriented social events. We consider Sunshine to be an extension of our home environment and feel comfortable knowing that our children receive the best care everyday!
