Letter From the Director

Dear New, Returning and Prospective Sunshine Families,

Welcome to a new year at Brentwood Sunshine Preschool!

As you are aware, Sunshine has a rich history within this neighborhood community that has been nurtured and cared for by Rita Cornyn. It is my pleasure to partner with Rita, our incredible teaching staff, the Board of Directors and with each and every family so that together, we can continue to uphold the standards of excellence for your children during these most formative years.

Our primary goal is to create an environment that will allow your children to learn, question, analyze and discover the world around them. We will be equally attentive to their social, emotional, physical and academic growth, in addition to building and developing their foundation of self-help skills. Through this means of teaching, we will elicit discovery, critical thinking skills and collaborative exploration that will foster their self-confidence and ultimately, solidify a foundation of what will promote a lifetime of loving to learn.

It is truly a gift to be a part of such an intimate school environment. It is my belief that parents are a child’s first teacher and together, we must create and maintain a culture of involvement with every family so that the learning extends beyond the walls of their classrooms and into your homes. Research overwhelmingly shows that parents who play a positive and active role in their child’s education, will promote accelerated levels of success in school. In addition, I am confident that your involvement will foster the development of lifelong friends and relationships for both you and your child.

In advance, I thank you for entrusting us with your most precious children. We all take this responsibility very seriously and look forward to a year of learning and fun that is consistent with your expectations. Please know that my door is always open and I encourage you to come upstairs so we can get to know each other, share a cup of coffee or discuss any questions or concerns that come to mind.

Again, on behalf of our incredible staff, Rita and me, we wish to extend the warmest welcome to all of you as we kick off the school year!

With my warmest regards,

Marla Minden, Director
