Ozark, Missouri


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!

joyceJoyce Harrington: “My name is Joyce Harrington and I am the owner of the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in Ozark, MO. It was through knowing Rochette Dahler (owner and founder of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse) that I became a part of this company. I have a business and accounting background, but that really wasn’t what I loved doing. I saw how happy Rochette was in owning her business and that inspired me to become her first franchisee – I wanted to have the same long-term impact on my community and the children in it.

We opened the doors in Ozark in 2005. I honestly love being part of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and having the opportunity to shape the lives of young children every day! I feel that I have the best preschool in my area and I’m very proud of all of our accomplishments!

On a more personal level, I have three children of my own and seven grandchildren. We have all lived in this area for about 20 years.”
