My name is Elonda Blyther, and I am the center director at The Sunshine House Early Learning Academy in Florence, SC. I received my associate degree in early childhood education, and I am currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in early childhood education.
I have my early childhood credentials, preschool credentials, and school age credentials. I am a member of the South Carolina Childcare Association and am a notary public for the state of South Carolina.
I have been working in child care for 20 years. I chose this field because I have a passion for educating and nurturing young minds, in addition to advocating for children. I believe they can achieve anything if given the right tools.
I enjoy reading, singing and spending time with my children and family.
My daughter has been attending The Sunshine House since she was two months old. She is now three and she loves it here. Everyone here is professional, caring and courteous. They teach Spanish to the kids, read books, and do hands on activities daily. They send emails daily as well so you can see the activities they are working on, as well as what was for lunch, how long your child napped, etc. Great and safe place to leave your child while your at work!
My son has been going to the Sunshine House for 4 years now. I wanted a place that would be safe, educational, and close to home. I definitely found that here. He is being cared for by people who truly care and want him to succeed in life. I love to hear daily about the things that he is experiencing and learning. I appreciate all the teachers for teaching my son so much! I would recommend this day care to anyone.
My daughter had a hard time with her last daycare and I was worried about moving her to a new one. I don’t regret the decision, she’s doing excellent and loves every staff member! The amount of love and care they show for these kids is outstanding!
Ms. Jamie and Ms. Miranda are absolutely wonderful with the babies. They work with them every day. I don't just see this on the videos they post on the app, but I can see this in my baby every day that I pick her up. She is doing so well! I can't thank the Sunshine House enough for hiring great and qualified teachers. These teachers love what they do!
