Sept 2007

My son has been at the Sunshine House in Richmond for about 6 months now, and we love it. It's a home-based daycare run by Brianna Offill, and she is wonderful with the kids. She's infinitely patient, caring, and she obviously loves them. She's very skilled at conflict resolution -- you can learn a lot just by watching her. The other women who work with her are also great; one is Bree's sister. Bree is totally organized and the house is always spotless. There are no unexpected closures and no drama, totally professional. She provides healthy meals and takes the kids out on field trips. This is my third kid and I've used many different childcare facilities ranging from big commercial daycares to nannies to home daycares. Bree is the best (well, she ties with my last home daycare provider, who sadly no longer provides childcare :-). I wish all of my kids had been as lucky as my third. Sometimes you don't realize what's missing from other daycares until you find one that's really exceptional. Their website is jennifer

I’m writing to recommend a fantastic family daycare in Richmond, Sunshine House Daycare. My daughter just graduated and is off to preschool, so they have one available full-time spot. Brianna Offill and Heather Lee are sisters who run the daycare; both are trained in early childhood education and have many years of experience working with children (in fact, their mother, “Grandma,” also ran a family daycare while they were growing up!). They are extremely loving, nurturing, patient, and supportive teachers, and the children clearly love them in return. The school is play-based, and they also take the children on terrific fieldtrips: to visit a pumpkin patch, a family farm, a tree farm, the East Bay Vivarium, Lawrence Hall of Sciences, and so forth. They have a wonderful program and my daughter really benefited from the safe, respectful, and gentle environment they provide. Feel free to email me with any questions. Here’s their website: Contact: Brianna Offill, 5106200785

I am recommending a daycare/preschool Sunshine House in Richmond hill, (tel: 510-620-0785. My 3YO son started Sunshine House 4 months ago, and we LOVE the school! Sunshine House is run by experienced staffs. One teacher was a preschool teacher, and another teacher has extensive experience working with children. It is in a clean, safe home with nice backyard with play structure, sand box, and out side art play area. Staffs are very gentle, loving and caring. They do circle time, show and tell, singing, reading, monthly newsletter, field trips, etc, etc. My not- yet-English speaking son is quiet and reserved. We wanted his school to be small, with caring staff, and wonderful teacher/child ratio, so that he would get enough love and attention he needs, learn to trust others and feel safe and happy while away from us. Sunshine House met our needs and so far has exceeded our expectation. I highly recommend Sunshine House!
