Meet the Director, Mary Stone

Aiken, SC day care, child care, childcare, preschool, first steps

Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to visit our school page! We are committed to providing quality care and education -- to every child, every family, every day! This is where your child’s lifelong learning begins!

My name is Mary Stone. I was born in North Tonawanda, NY, across from the Niagara River about 10 minutes from Niagara Falls. I am a current resident of Aiken, and have been for the last several years. I have been married to my best friend, David, for 27 years and we have three lovely children and two delightful grandchildren!

My professional background is in Accounting, Business Management and Human Resources. I am currently working toward a degree in Early Childhood Education. I became acquainted with The Sunshine House when my children were small and attended. I have worked full-time for The Sunshine House since 2009 and have worked as a Center Director for six years.

The honesty and simplicity of childhood is a wonder within itself. One of my favorite quotes is “Every child is a story yet to be told.”

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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. 


  • 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.
