Meet the Director, Ryan Barris

I have been with The Sunshine House for more than 10 years, most recently in Hope Mills, and am now the Center Director at Cliffdale.

Before working at The Sunshine House, I was a school age teacher for four years, where I gained lots of training and experience in the field and then came to The Sunshine House as an Assistant Director.

I have my early childhood credentials, and early childhood administration credentials, and I am qualified as a center director, program coordinator, and group leader. I have obtained many early childhood classes and I am finishing up my degree in education.

I enjoy working in childcare and building relationships every day with staff, parents and children. And, here at The Sunshine House, we strive to provide excellent child care and touch the lives of every child every day.

I also enjoy in my leisure time to sing, and produce music and spend time with family and friends.

  • I have always enjoyed my child going to The Sunshine House. I am extremely impressed as of late with the professionalism, with the teachers and the School Administrator! Thank you for all that you do!

  • I have seen my children grow and prosper radiantly in the last two months. I am so glad I chose The Sunshine House. I am so blessed and thankful to have my children in your hands.

  • Is it normal to feel guilty and miss your kids every day you are away from them when you work a full time, Monday-Friday job? That said, I couldn't think of a better place for them to be, because you and your staff treat all the kids as if they were your own. So thank you and I guess I should be grateful when they go to bed at night telling me how much they love all of their teachers and their friends... Let alone be grateful for the amazing gains they both have made. 


  • The Sunshine House works for your children. They care about them as if they were their own. I am not sure I’ve ever seen anything quite like this.

    -Kym D.
