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!
“We enrolled our son in Sunshine House about a week after his second birthday. It was the best decision we ever made. In the last three years, Sunshine House has encouraged him to try new foods that he would NEVER be willing to try at home, piqued his interest in art (he came home with several art projects every week), taught him how to develop relationships with his peers, and coaxed his imaginative play. All of this in addition to teaching him his numbers, colors, alphabet, patterns, writing, and reading. The teachers feel like family, and their love and patience they have for these children blows me away. I have high hopes that they will open a Sunshine House elementary school, middle school, high school, and university so that we never have to leave. We LOVE Sunshine House!”

“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.”

“Being a first time parent, I was feeling lost about what my daughter “should” know and when. I know we are told that every kid develops at their own pace, but let’s be real- parents are always worried and compare regardless! …But since starting at Sunshine House, I no longer worry….. She loves puzzles, and when doing them, now says the shape, color, or letter sound. She comes home singing songs, saying “thank you,” and is always happy. When I leave her in the mornings, I never spend a second worrying about her. The teachers are amazing and are very open with communication… I could go on and on about all the great things! Go tour for yourself and see- you won’t be disappointed!”

“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!”
