Sunshine “counselors” combine fresh, creative ideas with high energy to create a lively learning environment for your child. Many are college graduates and many others are teachers-in-training. And, their playful personalities and strong moral character make them excellent role models. Inspired by our fun, summer camp atmosphere, each counselor has a nickname, too. Whether you’re talking to Cricket, TicTac, Squirt, or any other staff member, you’ll notice our most outstanding quality right away—we really love kids!
