My daughter started there 3 weeks ago and myself, my husband and child are very happy with the daycare. The people in the front office are so nice and helpful, Serenity is in the 1 year old room, both the full time teachers in there are awesome and very on top of things. They seem to "always" go the extra mile to take care of the children. Personally I have seen some reviews on here that mention a child be thrown out , well here is my view on that, if your child get's thrown out of day care at "4" this gives you a little time to pre-pare your child for real school, daycares are less likely to throw your child out for being a discipline problem as they are getting paid to keep your child, public schools will have a field day with your misbehaved child as well as your attitude on blaming everyone but your child. Excuse me for saying, but it is important for a parent to uphold the rules of school/daycare where there are "no" rules enforced is "no" place I want my child. When a parent blames the facility for the child's actions, the parent is setting the child up for failure, in life "our" children might not like the rules but "we" as parents, teachers etc. must stand together in showing the child by example, and for this child being talked about here, it is not the child that has the issues, the child is living by example and that is why the child is not in daycare any longer. My child come from a small daycare where I was not happy with the facility, and there was no rules or consequences there, the children were dropped off and "anything" was acceptable, the children would fight , scream and show out and it was fine, this is not a day care I chose to keep my daughter at. I want my daughter to have care, structure, education, and discipline in her everyday life and most of all, I want her to know that I will never tolerate her being disruptive, rude or dis-respectful at school / daycare or with any adult any where. The first time I pick my child up or get a call that she is not following rules, being mean or what-ever trust me, my child will know that this is not acceptable and will have my full attention addressing the situation. People need to stop blaming the people around them for their children's problems, that is not teaching the child to be "accountable" !!!! Anyways, as for the facility, I plan on my daughter going there till the day she does not need daycare or after care and I feel and have viewed this facility and employee's as "great" !!! Now will there ever be a situation I am not too please with "maybe" and if so, I will discuss the matter at hand not teach my child the facility has no right to discipline. Thank you for all of you that help me day to day making my princess "Serenity" all she can be, the facility and employees are worth every time I give them for my daughter to be safe, structured and in good hands. These kids eat good there too !!!!! The state does not participate in funding if the facility is not up to par !!!!!!
The teachers are great but the owner could use a business communication class. Anytime you go to her with an issue she will not take into consideration what you said and will try to argue back with you. If her husband is around he will jump in as well. You will be paying for the parties that the children have as they don't contribute at all to them. She also always has a stone face and doesn't appear to be happy and doesn't speak to parents when they enter or depart unless she needs something from you. My suggestion would be go here for the teachers only if you can deal with the poor leadership of the facility. Please note, they do have a high turnover rate of teachers. I think this may be due to pay. But the tuition is $137 per week.
I have two children enrolled at Sonshine Learning Center and my family couldn't be happier! The facility is always warm, inviting, nicely decorated, and very clean! The staff, including the director, are so kind, courteous, loving,and professional! we are treated like family and I appreciate that! A mother loves to drop her children off happy and pick them up happy! My babies are always happy! We love SLC!
the day care was great clean and the staff was friendly and kind
