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!
The Dahler’s are the founders and franchisors of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, and the owners of this individual school location. It is the pursuit of “something much better” in early childhood education for their own children that guides and shapes each of the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse schools. Matt and Rochette are dedicated and proud parents of Gillian, Riley and Paxon. Each of their children has thrived with the social and educational components that Little Sunshine’s Playhouse has provided for them from birth to Kindergarten. The entire family cherishes those early years, preschool memories and first friendships.
To say The Dahler’s live, sleep and breathe Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is an understatement. The mission and culture of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is truly an extension of the family’s values and visa versa. Their passion is to continually redefine the standard of early childhood education and share their love and dedication for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse with other families and children across the country.
As the Program Director at our San Antonio-Dominion location, my passion for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse runs so deep! I began my journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse years ago in Springfield, Missouri, where our company was founded in 2002. Initially, I was certain that teaching was my passion until I promoted up through the ranks into senior management at our Springfield III location.
When the opportunity arose to open up my very own market, I jumped on it! In March 2016, my husband and I relocated to San Antonio where I launched the first San Antonio location located off I-10 and Dominion Drive. In conjunction to my role at the Dominion location, I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to launch our Stone Oak location alongside our Stone Oak Program Director, Teresa Gomez. My favorite part of my role within Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is creating lasting relationships with my students and families. I look forward to meeting your family and embarking on this journey together!
My name is Elia E. Jackson and I am so honored and excited to be serving as your Assistance Director for the very first Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool in San Antonio! I am eager to take this wonderful journey with you and looking forward to building bonds and getting to know each and every family. I am a very passionate about being an advocate for your child. Being a unified team not only with staff but with families will ensure that every child has an opportunity to thrive and succeed in all areas of development.
I am originally from California; there I began my journey in Early Childhood Education at UCLA. You name it I have done it in this field. I have over 25 years of experience and knowledge. My goal is to mentor all our staff and ensure that they as well as I continue learning and growing so that we are not only a support for the children and their families but for each other as well.
As this new journey begins with LSP, so does a personal one for my husband and I as we now find ourselves as “empty nesters”. Our baby is headed to TAMUCC. We are so proud of all our 3 children! On my free time I enjoy spending time with our 2-year old granddaughter and our 2 fur babies. I enjoy crafty and trying out various DIY projects when they turn out the way they should (he-he-he).
I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. Please know one of my goals is to ensure that all families and staff know that they are always welcome to come to me.
