Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is recognized within the industry for a concept based on higher standards of service, community visibility, and security. We offer an identity of unrivaled distinction… in our brand image and high-profile architectural presence, and in the level of support and training our franchise system provides the School Operators.
Our secured Kiddie Cams™ allow families to monitor their children via any computer in the world with Internet access. This feature is valuable to grandparents who live far away! The cameras are set up in every classroom and on the playground. They show full color and are secured by user name and password, to restrict access. Kiddie Cams™ also allow you efficient over-site of school operations.
Our LuvNotes™ system is user-friendly, secured platform that allows us to stay in better communication with parents throughout the day. When parents log into the LuvNotes™ system, they will see a classroom snapshot (which will include a list of planned activities for the day, menu details, announcements, etc.) personalized daily reports (with notes on specific activities, disposition/mood, sleeping and eating habits during the day, etc.) and photos and videos of their child(ren). Parents can access this secure information via web interface or any smartphone with internet access.
Our master planned and accredited curriculum, Creatively Shine™, is based off the newest research and trends to prepare young children to enter their educational career equipped with cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills. At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse we believe that a child’s work is PLAY! We teach children lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and preplanned play. We know that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives!
“Our appreciation for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse developed over a decade ago as we watched all of the wonderful accomplishments of the company playing out (on a business level and an educational impact level). We have taken great pride in the fact that it is a family-owned business with the most sincere grass roots imaginable.

Hi! My name is Jordan Kendrick. I am the Assistant Director at the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse- Leawood! I started with Little Sunshine’s in August of 2013 as the Assistant Teacher in the Pre-K classroom. I was quickly promoted to the Lead Pre-K teacher. I fell in love with LSP. I knew that I wanted to continue to grow with this amazing company, and that I wanted to get into management. After about four years with LSP I was promoted to the Assistant Director position in Fall of 2017. Prior to joining the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse team, I taught two, three, and four year olds. I am currently working towards my degree in Early Childhood Development, and taking some business classes! I am very excited to further my education, and continue growing with this amazing company. I look forward to building relationships with you and your child, and watching them hit developmental milestones!
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my fiancé! We just recently bought a house together, and are very excited to tie the knot in February of 2019. We have two German Shepherds named Daisy and Hercules who we treat like our children! I am the oldest of four sisters, so I grew up with a very close and big family. My adorable niece just turned one, and I love getting to spend quality time with her! I also enjoy the outdoors, shopping, and Netflix!
