Meet the Director, Peggy McDaniel

Peggy McDaniel is the Center Director at The Sunshine House on Greystone Blvd. Her passion for working with children lead her to the Sunshine House in 1985, and she has been with the Company since.

During her tenure she has worn many hats, including Teacher, Assistant Director and her current role as Center Director. As a teacher Mrs. Peggy worked with all ages, creating atmospheres that promoted learning, and fostered love. As a Director, she is known for her highly animated and nurturing personality; you can hear her yell “Good Morning” from the parking lot!

If there is one thing Mrs. Peggy loves a little more than the Sunshine House, it’s her family. She has been married for 31 years to her best friend, Vaughn, and they have two daughters, Tamara and Ebonie. Although she has two granddogs, Trouble and Chase, Mrs. Peggy is currently anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first grandchild, due in April 2014.

Whenever the time permits, Mrs. Peggy enjoys traveling with her family. Her favorite locations are Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, and Cherokee, Tennessee (or anywhere with lots of casinos)! Mrs. Peggy also enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, but most of all she loves spending quality time with her family.

  • 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.

    -Lisa B.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    -Sam H.

  • 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.
