I have been educating and nurturing children for the past 35 years. After receiving my degree in speech language pathology, I worked for Mecklenburg County Schools in Charlotte, NC, and Duvall County Schools in Jacksonville, FL.
Upon relocating back to South Carolina, I worked for 12 years as a manager for the Tri-County Head Start program. I then worked for Charleston County Disabilities Board as their Children’s Director.
I joined The Sunshine House in 2013. My hobbies include dancing and watching sports -- especially football!
Going back to work and leaving an infant is not easy for anyone, but I also moved across the country...I do not know anyone in South Carolina but I know I don't have to worry about my baby girl being taken care of; you all do a great job of that. Thank you for accommodating Gema at the Sunshine House!
My daughter has been cared for at The Sunshine House since she was 6 weeks old. She's now 4! It is like a second home for her, and she loves going. I recommend the Long Point Sunshine House preschool to everyone. I truly couldn't ask for anything more than the care they provide in a learning environment.
[My son] claps when we pull up to school in the morning and when we drive by on weekends, he points and says 'school!'. He seems very happy every time we pick him up as well. It's hard to explain, but you can just sense in him that he's very happy. We can tell he's learning a bunch too! In just a few short weeks, his vocabulary has expanded, he's counting higher, saying 'ABC' every time he sees letters, pointing out more animals, saying thank you more, the list goes on and on. In short, we can see that he's happy and learning a ton…”
My son has been at the Sunshine House since 8 weeks old. I was nervous at first leaving my son that young, but the teachers in the infant room are amazing!!! They are awesome and truly care about the children they are caring for. We have had a wonderful experience at the Sunshine House.
Thank you so much for taking such good care of Donovan and giving him many fun-filled days. He learned so much from his teachers.
