Our four-year-old son is thriving at Sunnyside Learning Center! He is genuinely excited to go to school each day and has formed special bonds with his teachers and classmates. He has mastered all of his letters and numbers and is working on phonetics and sight words. He enjoys practicing his handwriting and always looks forward to the "letter of the week." We've been most impressed with the rigor and curriculum of the full-day preschool program. We have no doubt that he will be prepared for kindergarten. We are excited to pick him up each evening to hear about his day, look at his school projects and artwork and get progress reports from his teachers. In addition to academics, he is growing socially and artistically. We appreciate that he gets ample time to play both indoors and outdoors and we eagerly anticipate his seasonal class musical concerts. We have only lived in Lake Stevens for 18 months, and Sunnyside was the answer to our prayers. We applaud the teaching staff and Cindy and thank them for their dedication to our son and to early learning.

Sunnyside Preschool's Pre-K program was my daughter's first education and social experience. Sunnyside's environment and curriculum is supportive, welcoming and fosters a child's growth, and because of that I am confident that my daughter is ready for Kindergarten. Thanks Cindy. We will be sending our younger child to you in a couple years!

We love Sunnyside! Our son spent two years there and now our daughter will start in the fall. The staff at Sunnyside are amazing. My son is hesitant in new situations and was very unsure about starting preschool. His teacher was so warm and welcoming and really put him at ease. He loved her and had a great first year. Then his second year he was nervous about being with a new teacher, but once again the teacher was wonderful and he loved her too. His two years at Sunnyside really helped him to blossom and grow and be fully prepared for kindergarten. I'm excited for my daughter to attend there as well. I love that Sunnyside is academically strong but recognizes that children learn through play, so there are plenty of opportunities for that. I also appreciate their emphasis on outdoor time, even in the winter when it's raining! That time is so important and healthy for kids, and I love that my children see it modeled each day they are at preschool. Thank you Sunnyside, for the great environment you provide!

My child attended Sunnyside Preschool for 2 years, she entered as a very shy and timid child. Tears would run down her face at drop off, however the tears only lasted for the first couple days. Now in her final year with Sunnyside, she is leaving with tears, not because she wants to leave the school but because she wants to stay. She has gained confidence, independence and a great deal of knowledge from her years at Sunnyside. The communication from staff to parents is fantastic, I especially love the monthly emails so I am kept informed. The level of education my child received has far surpassed my expectations and I cannot wait for my son to start his journey with Sunnyside Preschool.

Words can't quite express our appreciation for all of you and the "magic" that you have provided for these precious children. Thank you so much for the past two years. Erin's life will forever be enriched by having such a wondrous educational beginning at Sunnyside Preschool.

Thank you for such a great year of preschool with Thomas! We have truly enjoyed watching him learn and interact with the other kids and his teachers. All of the projects were very well planned and Thomas was always excited to show us his newest creation. My favorite times this year were hearing Thomas sing a song in Spanish about the ABCs that I didn't teach him. It has been so exciting to know that he has been learning so much. Thank you so much for all that you do.

Dear teacher Cindy,
Thank you for being my preschool teacher, for watching me grow, for helping me learn, for encouraging my creativity, and for celebrating my independence with me. I am now ready for kindergarten, but will sure miss you. Thank you for always making me feel special.

Love, Karen

My son attended Sunnyside Preschool for Preschool and PreK from 2012-2014. When I moved to Lake Stevens I wanted to find a preschool for my son that had a school-like atmosphere and one that did not feel like a daycare. I found exactly what I wanted at Sunnyside.

This school is staffed with a wonderful group of teachers. Each and every one of them are full of kindness and compassion. Each day that my son was dropped off for school I knew that he would be in a great environment, full of competent individuals where he was able to learn a variety of things while having fun at the same time.

I am happy with my decision of choosing Sunnyside for my son's Preschool years. And if you choose Sunnyside I am confident that you won't be disappointed.
