Meet Our Director, Casey Houston

Hi! My name is Casey Houston. I have over 20 years of experience working with young children and their families. I earned my bachelor’s degree in early childhood/elementary education and business from North Greenville College (now University) in 2004. I have also served as the Vice President of the Travelers Rest High School All Sports Athletic Booster Club for the past 4 years.

Outside of The Sunshine House, I spend time with my new husband and my 2 teenage sons. We also have a chocolate lab, Lily, that is FULL of energy.

It is my ultimate goal to provide a warm, welcoming environment for the children and families of The Sunshine House, and to foster a sense of family between all the staff and teachers. We are working hard to become the best childcare facility in the rapidly growing Travelers Rest, SC community.
