Infant Daycare (6 Weeks - 1 Year)

A lifelong love of learning begins in the very first years of your child’s life. At The Sunshine House, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your child is used to receiving at home.

We are focused on the individual needs of your baby, and utilize the primary caregiver system in our nursery. 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 child’s interests and development. 

Toddler Daycare (1 - 3 Years)

This is a time of great developmental strides! In our toddler care classroom, we respond to your child's newfound energy and curiosity with fun learning activities and creative playtime that stimulates the mind and encourages exploration, while introducing structure and an established routine.

This is also when many children start the potty-training process. 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, Jo-Ann Holly

Hi, my name is Jo-Ann Holly. I am the Director of The Sunshine House Early Learning Academy in Mount Pleasant, SC at Park West. I’ve been here since February 2003 when the Park West center first opened and started as an infant room teacher. I then became the Assistant Director and now serve as the Center Director.

I love being at The Sunshine House in Park West! After many years of living up north in Mystic, CT, where we owned our own business, we decided to move to Pawley’s Island and then to Mount Pleasant. We were one of the first families in the Park West community.

I thoroughly love watching these children grow from 6 weeks old to 12 years old. To be able to watch them develop and thrive is such a great feeling. I see children in the community who attended the center and are now old enough to drive! I enjoy helping and being a part of our families’ lives.

I enjoy spending time with my husband, Gus, of 40 years, and our three boys, Max and his wife Lesley, Alex and his wife Michelle, and Tucker and his girlfriend Manda. We enjoy spending time with them and our two grandchildren, Grace and Eason. We also have a new grandchild on the way which is very exciting! We love visiting them as often as possible. We enjoy the beach and taking trips. Spending family time together and time with children is very fulfilling to me.

I have my family at home and my family here at The Sunshine House. That is what makes me happy!
