Son Shine academy was highly recommended to us, and I know why.  Great, caring staff and a wonderful learning and spiritual environment.  Thanks for making the first school experience an enjoyable one!

Thank you for providing a great first year of learning and fun.  We truly appreciate your long hours and hard work and dedication to our little ones.

The staff is wonderful, you are so warm and caring and made our son feel comfortable when he first started.  He tells us how much he likes all of you and how much fun you are.  Thank you for being so kind and easy to talk to and thank you for all you do.

We really like the Christian aspect your preschool offers as there aren’t many preschools that do offer it.
She really enjoyed chapel time and singing songs with pastor

We think your academic aspect was very well balanced.  Our son really likes the music, he is always singing the songs you sing.  He always told us everything he learned when we picked him up from school.

I was impressed with the variety of academics.
