I wish I'd found this learning center 4 years ago! I had avoided day cares and put my children in private homes until 2 years ago. When I found Sonshine Learning Center, I was so impressed. The class size was small (8 kids or less) per teacher, each teacher was loving and caring, and my kids excelled there. My 4 year old graduated READING! I can not say enough good things about this center! The director and office staff is also so very friendly, caring, understanding, and helpful!! This center cares about kids! I recommend them to everyone I know! (A LOT of Garner teachers send their kids there!) A new director came in 2011 and a lot changed for the better, including extending the hours of the teachers there during the day into the early evening for better consistency and structure for all kids. I m a school teacher with WCPSS and very picky! Lots of teachers kids there!

All three of my children attended Sonshine Learning Center and I never had one issue! I was impressed with the care each of my children received as infants all the way through the preschool program. I knew my children were well cared for, loved, and properly educated along the way. I would recommend this center to anyone!!!!!!

We have cared for many kids and currently have 5 which are all in some type of childcare setting. We used this facility for about 2 years. The way we were treated by the "new" administration was horrible and I have never experienced this type of ego-oriented type of communicaton from any center and did not expect such from a church ran facility . Our child had incident reports that staff admits to not properly documenting or addressing until there was a complaint and threat of removal by a parent over an incident. SLC program pastor admitted that she believed I knew of seriousness and apologized for assuming so in that I had not been made aware of exactly where things were. The center admitted "tabling" request from teacher for intervention and not knowing how to deal with behavior. Not knowing the level of concern we were not able to seek intervention for our child and work with SLC because of the angry parent and their concern of future incidents with the child causing parent to withdraw. What about the fact you neglected givivg us a chance to correct behavor? Does our child not matter? Are we not held at the same worth? If SLC had expressed concerns or sought resources earlier it would of allowed us to seek intervention before a major incident and a child being injured. Not only did they slight us, they endangered all other kids in the class by not addressing problem properly. Deciding to remove our child came with the phone call for pickup for the incident and the way the situation was presented to us in follow up meeting in which SLC was clearly trying to make sure they looked after the other parents concerns and not having admit to them they failed this situaton and the safety of their child from the beginning by allowing us to set up a plan of intervention. SLC approach and resolution was anything but "by the book" - Oh!! The incident is 2 year old biting and having temper "fits". Not behavior a childcare facilty should be equipped to handle, right. Well at least not this one. Ithink God has us atop his list allowing us to see this for what it was and giving us another center which is ready to help us. By the way once we get the intervention in place and the behavior under control SLC will be glad to re-enroll us. Are you kidding me!!!

Sonshine Learning Center is an awesome daycare. I would not have my children anywhere else. I know that when I leave my kids they are being loved. My oldest is in the before school program and my youngest is in the nursery. I have NEVER had a problem with a teacher at this school. I have nothing but wonderful things to say. If you want a good Christian daycare this is the school for you.

Our daughter attended this facility for almost 2 years. She came home with a complete hand print bruise on her right forearm. There were four fingerprints on the under portion of the forearm and one print on the top portion of the forearm just under the elbow. Pediatrician confirmed that it was an adult hand print. NCDCD was unable to determine intent so the case was unsubstantiated; we were then dismissed from the facility for filing the complaint noting that enduring a state investigation was very painful and traumatic for the staff. There was absolutely NO regard for my daughter (who is 2 yoa) or us as the parents. Beware of the "flock" mentality of the establishment's staff and members!
