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.
Hi! I am so thrilled to be the Program Director of Little Sunshine Playhouse-Stone Oak. I am a graduate of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2007! After being a stay at home mom for four years, I decided that my children would benefit from social interaction and enrolled them in a local child care program; I then began working at the program my children attended as a floater in 2010. In 2011, I was promoted to Assistant Director. My children and I created great memories during this time, and preschool was their second home. I enjoyed working with families and being an advocate for children. In 2013, I left the child care field and committed myself to working with children through Child Protective Services. In 2015, I transferred to Texas Child Care Licensing as an inspector and investigator. Though I have continued to work with children in a variety of ways, I feel most empowered when I am in a school, working hands on with families! Providing a trusting, loving, and safe environment for children is so important to me, and I feel LSP’s philosophy encompasses my very own.
On a more personal note, my partner and I, James, are raising two wonderful children, Catalina & Kenneth. Our family is rounded out by James’ three boys, Alex, Diego, and Austin, as well as three dogs and one cat! In our free time we enjoy visiting downtown San Antonio to explore different restaurants and museums; we also enjoy bowling, playing games at arcades and we have a family tradition of watching 80’s & 90’s movies every Friday night together! James and I like being active outside, as well, and enjoy camping, working out and going on motorcycle rides.
I look forward to meeting the families of Stone Oak and spreading the LSP magic to all of you!
