Meet Our Director, Monica Chapman

My name is Monica Chapman, and I have over 12-years of experience in childcare. I received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Greenville Technical College and later received my BS in Early Childhood Education and Family Studies from Southern Wesleyan University. I am married to Kenyatta Chapman who is a long-haul trucker, and we have three amazing children, Nyrobia, Javari, and Alex. Together we reside in Piedmont, South Carolina.  

It has been my personal experience that relational and educational bonding begins with a family's first experience in childcare before their child attends public school. If a strong bond is built during the early years of a child, then together the family and future educators can prepare that child for success emotionally, socially, and educationally. I work diligently daily to have open communication with families and my team to understand their personal needs and the individual needs of every child.  

Outside of the classroom I enjoy fishing, listening to music, spending time with my family, crafts, and sitting on my front porch. A few interesting facts about me are that my favorite foods are vegetables, I would love to learn how to play the piano, my favorite car is a Mustang, I can sing, and if I could do my dream job for one day I would be a race car driver, of course with all my current and previous students cheering me on! 

Meet Our Assistant Director, Brenda Barcroft

Hi, I’m Mrs. Brenda! I received my BS Degree in Early Childhood Education from Bob Jones University, and I’ve enjoyed working in the childcare field for almost 40 years - as a teacher, Assistant Director and Director of several centers over the years.

I’ve been married to my husband, Michael Barcroft, for almost 40 years, and we have 5 incredible grown children and 2 grandchildren. We have resided in Travelers Rest since November 1999. In my “free” time, I enjoy spending time with my family, time at the beach and riding motorcycles with my husband.

It is my honor to work with Mrs. Monica here at The Sunshine House. We look forward to serving our families and seeing the school grow and thrive once again.
