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.
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!!
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!
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!
