My name is Octavia Townsend. I grew up and have lived in North Charleston my whole life. Since 2005 I have worked with children of all ages. It has always been a passion of mine.
I started out with The Sunshine House as a toddler teacher in 2013, and I was promoted to assistant director in 2015. Today I am the director of the NAD Road center.
I am a proud mom of one beautiful daughter. In my spare time I like to shop, read, and listen to music. It is very rewarding for me to see a child’s face glow with excitement while they are learning new things. I also enjoy interacting with families and teachers.
The staff & faculty of this particular SSH is our extended family. My 7.5 year old began attending here at 11 months old & my 5 year old son at 8 weeks, and my ex husband & I make the 20 minute commute purposely to bring our children here. The longevity of the staff & the way they are truly & personally invested in the lives of the children is nothing short of a gift!
All of her teachers communicate with me so well, and they always make me feel better when I'm dropping her off. Since she started daycare, I have seen her improve greatly with her social skills and she's also gaining weight (she's always been under weight). There's not another daycare I would trust with my daughter!!
I highly recommend this child care center. They go above and beyond for the children and parents. The kids aren’t there just to play - they actually learn. We aren’t just customers to them - we are family. They take the time to learn about each family and their different needs. I wouldn’t take my children any where else. They are the best daycare center hands down - no others compare!
I LOVE this Facility! I have had nothing but a GREAT experience since we have been here. I attended this school when I was a child, and now 20 years later, both of my kids attend. Everyone is always positive and always welcoming to the kids. Everyone knows my kids by name!
