The talented teaching team at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is led with enthusiasm, values and vision. We build cohesive teams by valuing each teacher’s strengths and contributions within the programs and recognizing the relationships with the students in their care.
We recruit the best educators in each community we serve by offering competitive pay and benefits, time off work, advancement opportunities, a beautiful and fun work environment and ample classroom supplies so they can be creative and individualize the classroom activities.
Our teachers are respected as professionals and provided the tools and ongoing professional development to thrive within their classroom. Team building and staff morale are a primary focus of our highly dedicated school Directors. Our teachers understand that children learn best when they are provided a foundation of warm, responsive care and a genuine loving relationship is built with their teacher.
We are very fortunate to have an amazing team of talented teachers at each of our schools who are passionate in what they do and care deeply about their students. Because we know this sentiment is shared by all who are involved with our schools, we have designed a program called the “Company-Wide Teacher of the Month/Year” to recognize our most outstanding teachers for their hard work and dedication!
A teacher from each school will be nominated for this recognition every month and from those nominees, the teacher who has most closely exhibited the ideal Little Sunshine’s Playhouse teacher characteristics will be earn the title. Teachers can be nominated by parents, students, co-workers, school managers or school owners. The comments submitted are used in conjunction with employment reviews, classroom quality assurance performances, personal exchanges, etc. to determine the winner of the “Company-Wide Teacher of the Month”. Then, at the end of the year, a “Company-Wide Teacher of the Year” will be selected out of all the Teachers of the Month. The winners of these special awards are rewarded with additional paid vacation days and recognized company-wide.
