- Infant Daycare (6 weeks - 1 year)
At The Sunshine House of Mint Hill, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your infant is used to receiving at home. In our infant daycare, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules. While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your infant’s interests and development.

Meet Our Director, Briana Reid
My name is Briana Reid. I am the Director here at the Sunshine House of Mint Hill. I have been a part of the Sunshine House Family since July 2021. Our center is built on the culture of love and family. I believe this is the foundation to partnering with the surrounding community and building long lasting relationships with our current and prospective families.
Our mission and philosophy are to provide children with high quality care – every child, every family, every day. This is vital to ensure our children are equipped through each and every meaningful learning experience, and to build and prepare for their future success in life.
Meet Our Assistant Director, Keresha Garlick
It is my pleasure to partner with our Director to provide the highest quality childcare services for all our amazing families. This profession called to me more than 25 years ago. Since then, I have acquired my Early Childhood Credentials and Level III North Carolina Administrative Credentials, and I obtained my master’s and bachelor’s degrees in business administration in management.
I have participated in several roles in this industry, including infants, two's, and pre-k teacher, afterschool coordinator, and Assistant Director. As the Assistant Director, my focus, along with our dedicated Center Director, is to deliver a quality program in a safe and nurturing environment for our future leaders. Building lasting relationships with children and families – this is why we are here!
I have been married for 2 years to a marvelous husband and father. We have two beautiful children, a daughter and son, who make us proud daily. I enjoy spending time with my family and my extended family. I also love to travel the world, dance, and sing (even though I cannot sing) every chance I get. I like to take life day by day and be grateful for the little things. Rather than getting caught up in what I can’t control, I try to accept and make the best of it.
