Meet the Director, Denise Oates

My name is Denise Oates, and I have more than seven years of experience in child care and early education. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education in 2010 and began my career in North Carolina teaching preschool that same year. I became an Educational Director in 2016 and received my Level III Director’s certification in 2017.

I am the proud mother of four boys and two girls who keep me busy. I enjoy spending quality time with them. I also enjoy art, music, and dancing.

One of the most rewarding experiences in my position is interacting with the children, families, and teachers. I feel that educators and families need to work together to guarantee that each child has enhanced learning experiences. I look forward to meeting you!

  • I have seen my children grow and prosper radiantly in the last two months. I am so glad I chose The Sunshine House. I am so blessed and thankful to have my children in your hands.

  • I have always enjoyed my child going to The Sunshine House. I am extremely impressed as of late with the professionalism, with the teachers and the School Administrator! Thank you for all that you do!

  • Is it normal to feel guilty and miss your kids every day you are away from them when you work a full time, Monday-Friday job? That said, I couldn't think of a better place for them to be, because you and your staff treat all the kids as if they were your own. So thank you and I guess I should be grateful when they go to bed at night telling me how much they love all of their teachers and their friends... Let alone be grateful for the amazing gains they both have made. 


  • The Sunshine House works for your children. They care about them as if they were their own. I am not sure I’ve ever seen anything quite like this.

    -Kym D.
