We scouted for a few schools before deciding on Sunnytots Playhouse for Brandon, our eldest. It was a new milestone for Brandon and for us too, as parent. At that time, I was a little worried on how the school will cope with Brandon not the other way round. Being the only child at that time, Brandon was mischievous, naughty, defiant, active you name it Brandon definitely made it on the Naughty list (even until today). Brandon settled in Sunnytots in no time and receiving calls and messages from Teacher Maggie or Principal Michelle about his “daily mischief” started too. From a just a school, Sunnytots became a second home for Brandon. Teacher Mary, Teacher Janani and Teacher Effy did an excellent job of keeping Brandon at his toes while nurturing him endlessly and tirelessly. We became very close to the teachers and Brandon is in good hands.
Besides the personal touches, we were satisfied with Sunnytots’ academic programme which Brandon excelled really well and that continued till date. 3 years passed like a breeze, soon it was time for Brandon to move on to big boys’ school. Last day of school in Sunnytots was definitely emotional and sad day. With heavy heart, we bid Sunnytots and Teacher Maggie adios. Teacher Maggie and I kept in touch since then. She and the rest of teachers are just wonderful we have grown beyond teacher parent relationship. They are my second family.
When it was time for our little Alexis (our second) to start school, without a doubt and in a heartbeat I called Teacher Maggie to inform her Alexis will be joining Sunnytots. We were both overjoyed as family reuniting again. I can always count on Sunnytots and its teachers and they have not failed me since. Some of the teachers who taught Brandon are still there, Teacher Mary, Teacher Janani, Teacher Effy and of course Teacher Maggie. Alexis, like Brandon enjoy going to Sunnytots and love Teacher Effy to bits.
Even though Brandon is in “big boy’s” school now he still misses Sunnytots everyday and longing to go back to Sunnytots just for Teacher Maggie’s famous dish, potato chicken. Thank you Sunnytots, for giving Brandon such wonderful memories and taking such good care of Alexis.
