We pride ourselves in being part of the community for 35 years! See what some of our families have to say about their time at Sunshine House!
?My son started going here full time when he was about 2 yrs old and loves going to school every day. I’ve toured almost all the preschools in Martinez and some in Pleasant Hill area but found that Sunshine House had an immediate warm, welcoming, clean, and most importantly safe atmosphere. The teachers are very approachable, patient and caring & know when to step in to teach the kids appropriate behavior. They even give us tips (as new parents) how to improve behavior skills at home. I couldn’t ask for a better place to start my sons education and feel at ease leaving him with them for a full day while I attend work. I noticed his development has also improved tremendously since he started school. He loves to sing songs, show off his artwork, and now is learning to interact appropriately with other kids by sharing and making friends. Sign up for enrollment soon as they normally have a waitlist (because they are just that good!)”

“My daughter has been attending Sunshine House in Martinez for just under 5 months now (she started when she was 2.5 years old), and absolutely loves it! Most preschools in the area we spoke with and toured had SO many rules and restrictions, days off and specifics, which were mentioned often in the initial introduction – Sunshine House had such a relaxed, child and parent-focused vibe right off the bat. After bringing my daughter for a visit and circle time, we decided it was a great fit. The staff and teachers are all so warm and loving, really know the kids, and go above and beyond to make sure every day at Sunshine house is a great one……We have noticed that she has gained a lot of independence since starting, and is clearly encouraged to do things on her own like wash her hands and potty in the toilet in an empowering, positive way. She is so obsessed with preschool – every morning she asks if today is a “preschool day” and every evening she wants to pretend to be a teacher and lead circle time and snack time at home. We can’t say enough good things about Sunshine House Martinez!”

“This child care site is simply outstanding….. The staff at Sunshine House is amazing. Not only did they prep her for Kindergarten, they did it in a way our daughter enjoyed going to school every day. They also have added perks like pizza night. I would highly recommend Sunshine House 2 if you are looking for staff that cares about your child and is reasonably priced.”

“We absolutely love Sunshine House. We feel that our kids are safe, well cared for, making great friends, and LEARNING a lot. The teachers are also amazing and have longevity at the school. This was our first day care experience for our 2yo and she loves going. She now sings full songs and knows her ABCs. She is already asking what letters and numbers are and she is not even 3 yet. Our almost 5 yr old is 100% ready for kindergarten not just from what he learned at Sunshine House, but because of the way the school taught him to sit in group, listen to the teachers, etc. We will be sad that he is leaving Sunshine but happy we get two more years with your youngest at this school.”

“As an educator myself, I highly recommend Sunshine House. They have an outstanding academic program and are phenomenal at building social skills in children of such young ages. All of the teachers are kind, caring, and supportive.
The staff works hard to create a positive environment and the children are greeted with hugs and smiles every morning. Please check this place out if you are looking for a quality preschool and daycare, you will not be disappointed!”
