Sunny P. Chico

Sunny’s life has been shaped by two passions: family and education. Throughout her career, from special education teacher to federal director, Sunny has empowered parents to be active partners in their children’s education. She founded SPC Educational Solutions to create an ideal option for every child’s education through a focus on education reform, healthcare education, and program implementation services.

In addition to her role as founder and president of SPC Educational Solutions, Sunny is also a published author. Her commitment to education, along with her experience, expertise, and passion for helping families culminated in creating the series YOU: Your Child’s First Teacher, an unprecedented parent empowerment program that guides parents as they lay a foundation for their child’s success in school and in life.
