Infant Daycare (6 Weeks - 1 Year)

At The Sunshine House of Columbia, SC at Greenlawn Dr., your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your infant is used to receiving at home. In our infant daycare, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules. While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your infant’s interests and development.

Our toddler daycare program is designed to respond to this unique stage of development.

When your toddler is developmentally ready to start potty-training, we’ll partner with you to create consistency from school to home. Our toddler daycare program helps your child build invaluable skills, such as language development, fine motor skills, analytical skills, positive self-image, creativity, increased attention span, communication and social integration.

Meet Our Director, LaToya Townsend

Hi, my name is LaToya Townsend and I am originally from Columbia, SC, but grew up in a small town by the beach. I have over 20 years of experience in the childcare and education field with an accompanying degree in Human Services.

I am married with a daughter who attends USC Upstate and a son who attends Blythewood High. I also have 2 yorkies that I adore. I enjoy spending time with my family and relaxing by the beach.

There is no other career I'd rather be in than working with children. As the saying goes, "it takes a village to raise a family," and they are truly like family to me!

I have been working with The Sunshine House for 20+ years, starting in the toddler’s classroom. I love to work with kids, teaching them to be leaders of tomorrow. I can’t wait to meet you and your family.
