Our Early Education Programs in Blythewood, SC
- Infant Daycare (6 weeks - 1 year)
At The Sunshine House of Blythewood, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment. In our infant daycare classroom, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules. While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your child’s interests and development.
- Toddler Daycare (1 - 3 years)
In our toddler educational daycare program, your child will participate in fun learning activities and creative playtime that stimulates the mind and encourages exploration, while introducing structure and an established routine. When your toddler is developmentally ready to start potty-training, we’ll partner with you to create consistency from school to home. Our toddler daycare program helps your child build invaluable skills, such as language development, fine motor skills, analytical skills, positive self-image, creativity, increased attention span, communication and social integration.
- Early Preschool (2 - 3 years)
At this age, your child is discovering something new each day. Our Early Preschool program is uniquely created to respond to your child’s natural curiosity and interest in exploration, while providing the structure and support your child needs during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool.

Meet Our Assistant Director, Yoelyne De la Cruz
Hola! My name is Yoelyne De la Cruz and I am the Assistant Director. I have 2 years of experience as an assistant teacher in childcare education and over 5 years of experience in childcare overall. My passion for childcare education started at an early age, watching my mom as a childcare educator for children with special needs. I have fond memories of visiting her center, interacting with the children as well as the teachers and seeing all that they do to provide the best possible care and education.
I believe that my experience as an assistant teacher will help me offer the greatest support to the Center Director, as well as the fellow teachers in all that we offer here at the Sunshine House. I am eager to continue my journey in childcare within this position!
