My name is Ann Royal. I've been with The Sunshine House since October 1999, where I started as Assistant Director, then Co-Director at our North Augusta school. I'm very excited to join the team as Center Director at our school in Augusta!
I graduated from Aiken Technical College, where I earned my Associates Degree in Business Management with a background in Early Child Care Education.
I served in the United States Air Force before settling down in South Carolina. I am married with three grown children, and 4 grandchildren, who keep me on my toes. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, painting, and sewing.
I believe all children should be allowed to be children and love to learn while having fun. The best way to help a child to learn is by playing and having fun. Although they may only see it as having fun, we know they are learning. So, I challenge all staff to learn to play and have fun.
Thank you to The Sunshine House for helping my shy 1 year old blossom into a stubborn 3 year old! Thank you Anne and your amazing staff for helping my stubborn 3 year old finally go to the potty on his own! Thank you so much for taking care of my child like he was your own.
As a full-time single parent of a four year old and three year old, I had a difficult time leaving my children alone with someone other than family or friends. The staff at Sunshine House made me and my children feel welcomed and loved. I was looking for a place that would be safe, educational, and close to home. I found what I was looking for here. My children are being cared for by an excellent, outgoing, friendly staff. I could not ask for a better place.
I have been so thankful for the love and care my daughter Olivia has received at The Sunshine House this past year. It was evident how much care everyone who works there places on the children. I have grown so accustomed to everyone at the center that it feels like a second home to our family!

Thank you so much for taking care of our baby. There are not many people you can trust with your first baby. Thank you for caring about her and giving us comfort.

Thank you for all the love and care you give our children. They get so excited each morning when we tell them we are going to school. You are appreciated!
