Meet Our Director, Brittany Clark

Hello, my name is Brittany Clark, and I am excited to be the Director of the Sunshine House Early Learning Academy on Decker Blvd.

I began my career working with children over 10 years ago as a musical theater mentor and coach at the Center for Inquiry in Columbia, SC. Since then, I have continued in positions as an art teacher, assistant teacher, lead teacher, and most recently, center mentor and curriculum trainer.

After I obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Musical Theatre from Howard University, I began to identify ways to merge my love of performance art, children and education. By implementing my skills as an artist and educator within the classroom, I have been able to foster an environment of creativity, integrity, and trust with my children. I’m excited to continue my education in the fall to pursue a Master’s Degree of Art in Education/Administration and Supervision.

What I enjoy most about working with children is the ability to have an impact on the leaders of tomorrow. Instilling positive values, morals, and ideals in the minds of young children will set the tone and establish the relationships that they will have with the world and with themselves. I can’t wait to meet you and your family and continue to extend that light and positivity to your children!

Meet Our Assistant Director, Rosezetta Figueroa

I was raised in California and left when I joined the United States Army after high school. I served nine years in the Army, and I also met my wonderful husband. I am a wife and a mother of five children. I have two years of Early Childhood Education and I am currently earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Point University. I have experience working as a lead teacher and owning a childcare center.

I consider it an honor and privilege to serve infants, young children, and their families. I have learned from owning a childcare center that when I take care of someone’s child, I am contributing to taking care of the family. I take pride in the fact that parents can feel a sense of peace knowing their children are in good hands. Therefore, the parents can focus on their goals, aspirations, and careers, and as a result, the whole family unit thrives.

My goal is to simply serve in every capacity at the Sunshine House Early Learning Academy and to aid in the success of every family.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, eating good food, going on date nights with my husband, reading, and learning.
