Both of our daughters have attended The Sunshine House since they were 6 months old. The faculty and administration are attentive, knowledgeable, and responsive to our needs as a family. This is more than a daycare, it is preschool from day one. Children get a huge head start by attending, and will enter kindergarten with social skills and academic abilities beyond what you'll find elsewhere with this kind of program.
I have 2 kids that attend here and have for about 2 years and we love it here. My kids are ages 8 & 7 and attend the summer program and after school program. They go on some great field trips during the summer! The teachers show compassion for each and every kid.
I love the teachers in the Infant classroom. They are so caring and attentive to the children. All the teachers know the children so well and respond to them so quickly, it's like they know them as well as they know their own children.
Meet Our Director, Connie Wilkins-Ruff
Hello! My name is Connie Wilkins-Ruff. I have been the Center Director in Greeley for the past five years. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Education with emphasis in Leadership. I have been a Director since 1999, and an early childhood educator since 1980. Over the past few years, the importance of early learning has taken on an important role within our State of Colorado and communities.
I'm looking forward to begin the quest of obtaining my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education! Child Psychologist, Jean Piaget, said, "The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge, but to create one who is able to do new things!" Education is an ongoing process, and it is exciting to be involved in leadership with the great staff at the Sunshine House #27.
I am a very proud mother of three adult sons, and I add ownership to two marvelous daughters-in-law. My four-year-old granddaughter and 1-year-old grandson add complete joy in our lives. The grandkids allow me to celebrate the simple pleasures of unconditional love. I love the tea parties, the dress up time, the book reading, and hearing "nana" being called out loud. The grandchildren add a dimension to life that exceeds any expectations I ever had! I love to travel, sew and scrapbook. In my free time, I spend time with two big dogs who love to be the center of attention. Most of all, the highlight of my life is spending time with my family and being together. It's refreshing that my job at the Sunshine House is just "child's play"! I love to be in the world everyday of fantastic parents and awesome kids!
