My name is Krista Knight, and I have more than 18 years of professional teaching and administration experience in Early Childhood. I’ve always known that I was fascinated with how children learn and grow, because at an early age I began to babysit and entertain younger relatives and siblings. After graduating one year early from high school, I decided to teach in a preschool environment. Additionally, I’ve earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Educational Studies, with a concentration on Early Childhood Education.
My classroom experience ranges from infants through school agers. Over the last few years, I’ve enjoyed the administrative part of my career when it comes to: mentoring teachers and organizing and helping to build positive, trusting relationships between schools and families!
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 20+ years and my two children. Expressing myself in the forms of writing, art, singing and creating music brings me peace. We all express ourselves differently as unique individuals-meaning that all children learn in different ways, at different paces through meaningful experiences.
It was nice to find a day care close to home. My daughter had a lot of separation anxiety when she started at 15 months old. The teachers helped her to calm down, held her, and figured out what made her happy (looking outside). She has been there 5 months, loves day care, and asks for her teachers by name every morning.
My son has been at the Sunshine House since he was 14 weeks old. As a mom you worry about who is taking care of your child, but with the Sunshine House on Little Ave, I have never worried!! Such a relief to know my son is in their caring hands. He is interacted with, around other sweet children, and educated even being so young! I’m amazed at what he comes home and tells me about! And the Sunshine House App has been awesome!! I’m able to see pictures, find out what he’s eaten, nap times/length, and general activities!!
What a loving facility that feels more like family than just faculty. My oldest has been there for 4 years and my youngest for 2. My kids have learned so much and are so loved. Couldn't recommend it enough. My 5 year old is more than prepared for Kindergarten and is already beginning to read.
My son has been with this location for about 6 months and we love it!! The school is great and the teachers are so sweet and friendly. In these last 6 months, my son has become more sociable, friendly, strong willed, and is learning so much. I trust my son is in good hands every day I leave him with his teachers.
