My name is Andrea Gonzales-Jarrett, and I’m the Center Director of The Sunshine House in Frisco! I’ve been in the early childhood field for nearly a decade! I began my career with The Sunshine House in 2011 as a school-age teacher at our school in Little Elm. In that time, I progressed to Assistant Director, Director-in-Training, and now Center Director. I have been at our Frisco school since July of 2017, and I am so excited to be a part of this community!
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of North Texas in 2014 with majors in Kinesiology and Social Science. I live in Little Elm with my husband Brandon, as an art teacher for LEISD, and our two boys – Rylan and Nolan. We also have a rambunctious dog named Kalisto. In my spare time, I love going to Rylan’s baseball games and just enjoying time with my family.
My philosophy for educating young children is to allow them to take the lead by encouraging them to learn through their environment and asking endless questions about it! There is nothing I love more than to see a child light up with excitement as they discover something new!
We love sunshine house Frisco! The teachers and staff are awesome. The teachers and staff are very nurturing and know all the kids by name. The curriculum and centers in each room are filled with learning toys and activities, the healthy foods provided are great and even my picky eater will eat good at school. We love The Sunshine House!
Outstanding service! Andrea and Jamie are so engaging, not only with the children, but the parents as well. Ms. Lorna teaches with such genuine care. Our child continues to learn and grow due to the experienced staff at Sunshine House. Thank you, for all that you do. I’d highly recommend Sunshine House to any new or current parents in need of daycare service.
My daughter has been at Sunshine House since she was 10 weeks. As a first time mama, I was so nervous about finding a daycare center I could trust, and Sunshine House has been great. The staff does an excellent job communicating with parents, and my daughter absolutely LOVES her teacher. I feel like I made the right choice enrolling here.
Words cannot even express how grateful we are that Nikki has had a multitude of positivity and love to grow up around… We are truly blessed that we are a part of the Sunshine House family. We love you guys very much!!

I have an 8 month old and a 4 year that attend this location. I know that my two boys are safe and loved while I am working. The kids are always active and engaged each time I pick them up. Also, this school was just fully renovated and the inside is fresh and welcoming!
