Meet the Director
Vickie Hizar is the Owner and Director. Vickie worked as a licensed home provider for over 20 years and then decided to go back to college. While earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, Vickie worked at Sunshine Day Care. Vickie was a lead teacher in every class at some point during her career. In 2013, Vickie purchased Sunshine Day Care and soon after purchased a new building to house the center. Vickie has 6 children of her own and currently has 11 grandchildren--and hopefully more to come! Her motto is, "We want children to cry and throw a fit when they have to leave, not when they are dropped off!"
