My name is Laura Shirley and I’m the Center Director. I have nearly 10 years of early education experience, with 8 years as a teacher. I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Clemson University. I absolutely love our center with its open concept design. Our team of teachers is phenomenal! Two of our teachers have been with The Sunshine House for more than a decade, and another teacher has been with us for 2 decades! I truly feel blessed to work with such wonderful teachers and for such a great company.
"Thanks for being there early so we can drop off our little ones and staying late when there's an emergency (or horrible traffic). Thanks for reading and fostering a love of learning for our children. Thank you for keeping their active minds and bodies alert and on the go. From the bottom of my heart with happiness I thank you."
This morning, my 5 year old told me he misses his old school (AKA The Sunshine House of Mauldin SC), and my heart melted! He attended the center for 4 years, and his older brother attended before that. He enjoyed every day spent with the loving teachers and his amazing little friends. We recently moved and the center was no longer in our school district, so we had to say goodbye when school started. We truly commend the caring staff that helped to make that center our home!
Sunshine House is such a blessing. My daughter came out of her shell there, she loves her teachers. She loves all of the staff. She makes sure to go and tell every one of them goodbye before she leaves for the day. Everyone there is amazing and really nice. I recommend them to anyone who needs a daycare.
The facility is clean and well-cared-for. The staff is friendly and considerate. Most importantly, they clearly enjoy and appreciate the children. I am greeted by multiple staff-members each day and they know my son by name. I am very happy with the services, the price, and the staff.

We think you all are so amazing in so many ways. You do many things we have not seen in any CDC we have attended. When we first started coming, we noticed your ability to anticipate our children's needs and plan ahead. We also saw how you could accommodate requests instead of saying "we do not do that here." We have seen you all show love, care, and compassion. We have also seen you teach not only the basics, but also right and wrong to our children. We are very thankful that we have come to the Sunshine House, where actions speak louder than words. I am so glad my children are now seeing what good hearted people do in the world.
