- Infant Daycare (6 Weeks - 1 Year)
At The Sunshine House, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your child is used to receiving at home.
We are focused on the individual infant child care needs of your baby, and utilize the primary caregiver system in our nursery. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver with primary responsibility for building a relationship with your baby, meeting your infant care needs and answering questions related to your baby’s day, progress and development. Your caregiver will also work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules.
Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, your caregiver will create a weekly lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your child’s interests and development. We also utilize Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized curriculum that helps support your baby develop critical skills. It is one of the only curriculums approved by every State Board of Education in the country.
- Toddler Daycare (1 - 3 Years)
This is a time of great developmental strides! As your toddler begins walking and talking, their natural curiosity drives them to discover and explore. In our toddler educational daycare classroom, we respond to this energy with fun learning activities and creative playtime that stimulates the mind and encourages exploration, while introducing structure and an established routine.
This is also when many children start the potty-training process. When your toddler is developmentally ready to start potty-training, we’ll partner with you to create consistency from school to home.
Our toddler learning program is built using the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum® as a foundation to help 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 / Explorers (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.
The foundation of our early preschool curriculum is Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized, state-approved program that supports your child in developing critical skills. We enhance this curriculum with the latest research into brain-based development, available only at The Sunshine House.
- Preschool (3 - 4 Years)
School readiness and building a solid foundation in the academic skills needed for Kindergarten is important at this age. Our preschool classroom utilizes the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum® to help make learning science, math, language, social studies, music and art fun.
Our preschool educators also incorporate Seeds of Literacy, our exclusive literacy and character development program, into your child’s day. This program uses high-quality children’s literature to instill literacy concepts, such as phonemic and phonetic awareness, letter recognition, and writing. The program helps build character as children explore character traits such as responsibility, patience, creativity, and respect.
- Pre-Kindergarten (4 - 5 Years)
Our Pre-K program prepares your child for success in Kindergarten. Using the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum®, our program is intended to challenge your child, but is creative and fun enough that your child will love learning!
Our Pre-K program provides fun experiences in language, math, science, social studies, music and art. Interactive experiences and activities are woven throughout the day to increase your child’s skills in language and literacy, executive function, cognitive development, creative expression, social and emotional development, and physical wellness.
And you’ll know exactly how your child is progressing! Our program includes a comprehensive assessment tool to help you and your child’s teacher measure progress and set goals to ensure a successful transition into Kindergarten.

Meet Our Director, April Sullivan
My name is April Sullivan and I have more than 13 years of experience in early education. I was born and raised right here in the upstate. I earned my Child Care Management Credential from Greenville Technical College in 2014.
From 2001 to present, I have been a teacher and an Assistant Director-5 ½ of those years with The Sunshine House. I have been married to my high school sweet heart for 13 years and we have two children. I love to spend time with my family outdoors hunting and fishing as well as at the ball field.
One of the most rewarding experiences in my position is to build a co-parenting relationship with our families to help shape such well-rounded children. I enjoy having fun with our families, children and staff to ensure that children are always engaged in a positive and loving environment.
