Meet Our Assistant Director, Amanda Batchen

Amanda has a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Family Studies. She joined the Sunshine House team in 2018 and has been in the early childhood world since 2012.

Amanda loves to create a space where children feel loved and safe. Her favorite activity in the classroom is anything with process art. Giving children a variety of items and watching their imagination and creativity expand is why she became a teacher in the first place.   

When she is not working, Amanda loves to spend time with her two wonderful boys. Watching them grow up and experience new things is truly magical. She also loves photography, crafts, and any DIY project.
