My name is Eva Curis, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in child care and early education. I grew up in Hungary, but have lived in Charlotte since 1996. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education in 1996, and began my career in North Carolina teaching preschool in 1997.
From 2001 to present, I have been a Teacher, Assistant Director and Director – all in our Ballantyne school. I am the proud mother of 3 girls, who get all my spare time when I am not working. I enjoy art, couponing, and cooking with my girls.
One of the most rewarding experiences in my position is interacting with the children, families, and teachers. I feel that educators and families need to work as a team to ensure that each child has enriched learning experiences.
At just three months old, I dropped my son off at The Sunshine House to head back to work after maternity leave. I never felt more guilty or nervous about leaving him with strangers or in a facility with many other babies and children. But, I never looked back. This facility’s staff, headed by Eva, made me feel so comfortable and accommodated every need for Michael. His teachers filled me in on every bit of his day. I wanted to compliment the professionalism, care and love this staff provides to its little ones.
We couldn't be happier with Sunshine House! Our son has been attending daycare since he was about 4 months old and he is now 2.5 years old, and we have felt like all of his teachers truly love him as much as we do. I'm constantly amazed by what he knows and learns in school. It's a very well-run, organized, and comprehensive daycare program.
To be frank, when we needed to put our first born in daycare at 10 months old we were extremely worried and nervous. However, it didn’t take long to realize these ladies care for these kids like their own. We now have 2 attending this daycare, and I can honestly say EVERY teacher has surpassed our expectations. The kids can’t wait to get there in the mornings and we have to beg them to leave every afternoon. We would never consider anywhere else!
Sunshine House on Donnington in Ballantyne has been a home away from home for our little one. She has been with them four years and they have been absolutely wonderful with her. They are EVERYTHING and more than I could ever want in a little school. The staff are phenomenal, caring, and knowledgeable about the needs of kids at each developmental stage.
I've been coming here for almost 8 years between both of my children. I trust in my child's teachers now and those teachers before throughout the transition in classrooms. They have loved both of my children as their own and helped them grow both emotionally and socially. There are many families that continue to choose Sunshine for their second and third kids and I believe that speaks volumes. Thank you for loving my kids!
