Please don't send your kids here, especially infants. There are too many teachers in the infant room taking care of 8 babies and they take turns too often so there's not really one teacher that fully concentrates to take care of your baby. So you are never sure if they all fully keep themselves clean or keep the place, toys and things clean all the time. The carpet looks old and need to be replaced but the teachers often have the babies on the dirty looking carpet. Also the teachers don't look trustworthy. Jasmine looks like she's not always telling the truth. And Sarah the owner is hardly there, hard to reach her and you can't contact her because the facility refuse to give you her number to contact. How ridiculous is that? Why? Something fishy is going on, that's why! And she refuse to give you back the tuition for withdrawing my babies without 30 days notices. How can I give 30 days notice when I had to withdraw my baby from being sick after staying in the hospital for 4-5 days because of being severely sick from this school? So please do not send your babies to this school! Send them somewhere else if you don't want them sick.
My son got severe rotavirus after spending just two weeks at this preschool. He is two years old boy, healthy, has never been sick before. He was admitted to the Emergency room with nonstop vomiting and diarrhea. The school administrator admitted the fact that it has happened before with somebody else. The staff stated that it is ok to be sick, all children get sick all the time. However, the school should be inspected for cleanliness and exposure to this virus. He also got pneumonia and ear infection.
They called me 10 days! after being absent at school. The administrator said that it was my responsibility to call them and inform. However, it shows how much they care about children. When I came to the school to pick my son’s personal belongings, nobody asked how he was feeling, they don’t care.
After my request to return my money, she said that it has to be 30 days advance notice. We only spent two weeks there, and 30 days notice does not make sense. She raised her voice and said that she does not have time for me. The fact that my absolutely healthy child got sick at this school was denied and she ran away.
This explains why there is no waiting list any more. I read many negative reviews before about this school and their court cases. I was taking my chance because I liked the facility. This experience turned out to be very negative. I do not recommend Happy Sunshine Kids to any one, learn from somebody else’s bad experience. Take your time and do the research before you put your child to preschool.
Precious experience – Even though my son has only been at Happy Sunshine a few months my family and I have found lots of wonderful things about the environment. Besides the magnificent facility which is always nice and clean the most precious experience I have had at Happy Sunshine Kids is getting to know the most wonderful people ever! It is indeed a warm place for kids and I believe my son is having a great time learning. I would absolutely recommend this great place to my friends!
Great school! – I think this is a great school and my son really enjoys it here. He is still getting used to being around other children and adjusting but everyone at Happy Sunshine Kids is doing a terrific job with him!
Remarkable School! – Remarkable!!! Happy Sunshine Kids Preschool is absolutely wonderful. My 4 year old son had a tremendous turn around after attending this school for one week. My son was disrespectful, mischievous, very defiant. He would always TEST authority from other adults now no way. The staff is awesome. They make the learning fun and interesting for all the children. I feel like each child is treated as an individual instead of each child being treated as a whole and that makes a difference. Allow your child to have this experience if you are in this area and you will not be disappointed.
The greatest! – I love the staff here and my daughter really enjoys going! She has learned so much and my husband and I plan on sending our next child to Happy Sunshine Kids as well! I recommend them to anyone needing a preschool for their kids, they are the greatest!
Wonderful School! – My son is very content with Happy Sunshine Kids Preschool. I am the parent of a 4 year old and I am very satisfied with the care that my son has been given. I visited quite a few schools before I decided to choose Happy Sunshine Kids Preschool. The school is very clean and children are happy. The food is healthy and the ratio is lower than many of the other schools. The facility is excellent. The teachers are so nice to my son and the other children in the class. I am fortunate to have found this reputable school. I have no doubt that my son will be ready for kindergarten.Any concerns and issues from parents are taken care of immediately. This is a great school!
Very prepared! – I feel very confident and safe leaving my daughter here and she absolutely loves it! She has learned so much and I feel like she is very prepared to start kindergarten.
friendly – Mikey loves the teachers here. I'm glad that I have someone I could trust while I'm busy at work. Thank you all, keep up the great work.
Bringing my boys here was definitely a good move. It's all they talk about when they come home. They do a lot of different activities with the kids and they learn everything they need to know before starting elementary school.
