Meet the Director, Zena Hayes
My name is Zena Hayes and I am the Center Director of The Sunshine House Early Learning Academy on Greenlawn Drive in Columbia, SC.
I have been a part of The Sunshine House team since 2003. When I began my journey here, I started as a teacher in the classroom working with young children of all ages. Since then, I have worked my way up within the company in different areas and now Center Director. I have worn many hats down through the years. I am very thankful to be a part of a company that provides room for experience and growth.
I currently have my SC Early Childhood Credential (2005), SC Director Credential (2013), and I'm currently working on my Associate's Degree in Early Care and Education at Midlands Technical College.
I am happily married, and have three beautiful daughters. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and going to church.
I believe that the early years are the most important in a child’s development. I feel that if there is some way I can help impact a child’s life, then I would love to be a part of that experience.
