My name is Tyvonia Shelley, and I have ten years of experience in childcare and early education. I was born and raised in Columbia, SC. I earned my Associates of Arts Degree in Early Care and Education in 2011 from Midlands Technical College. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at Columbia College. I have served in a variety of childcare roles over the years, including assistant teacher, lead teacher, co-director, and center director.
In my free time I enjoy reading, shopping, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy volunteering as an assistant leader with my local Girl Scout troop.
Having a connection with all our families and children is very important to me. I believe all children are special and deserve to learn in a loving environment.
My child attends The Sunshine House on Broad River Road. Ms. Tish and Ms. Alexis are great teachers. My child came to them not knowing how to write his name and now he is writing and spelling his name. They are always smiling and so welcoming when I come to pick him up and at drop off time.
My daughter has been with the Sunshine House for almost two years. Since we have been a part of the Broad River family, each morning I drop my daughter off, she is warmly greeted by each staff member we encounter. Reminds me constantly that we chose the right daycare for my toddler and allows me to be comfortable while at work to know that she is in the best hands! Even on her "grumpy" mornings, the staff members know exactly what to say to cheer my baby up!
The Sunshine House is a wonderful place! The teachers and staff are amazing and make you and your child feel right at home. They communicate with me on a daily basis of my child's progress and provide the tools and resources that makes my job easier. I'm so glad that we decided to go with the Sunshine House.
