Meet the Director, Erica S. Smith

Hello! My name is Erica S. Smith, and I am the Center Director for The Sunshine House Early Learning Academy on Dorchester Road in North Charleston, SC. I have always had a passion and love for children. My goal is to provide a safe, loving, and learning environment , where children can excel and grow.

I started my career with The Sunshine House on April 11, 2005 at the Longpoint location in Mt. Pleasant, SC. I am the mother of four beautiful children, Keyira, Jaylen, La’Ron, and Cartiere. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children and family, catch up with the latest movies, and relaxing.

  • 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. 


  • 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.

  • 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.
