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!

Dahler Family

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.

Karri Mills, Program Director

Hello! My name is Karri Mills, and I’m excited to be the Program Director for the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in the Woodlands. I’ve been in the preschool business for over 27 years and in administration for over 22 years.  I began my career as a pre-kindergarten teacher, which is when I realized I had a passion for teaching young children, and would make it my career. I moved out of the classroom and into administration where I grew professionally and ran several successful preschool programs, while raising my son.

I was very excited to find Little Sunshine’s Playhouse as I feel that their approach to learning and quality programs will bring an unrivaled distinction in preschool and early childhood education to our area.  I love to be hands on, and you will often see me visiting in the classrooms. My door is always open to my staff and LSP family, feel free to come by and chat at any time, I believe the key to a great school is communication, I would love to tell you all about Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and get to know you and your family.



 Tracey Tevere, Assistant Director

Howdy!! My name is Tracey Tevere and I am honored to be the Assistant Director for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in The Woodlands.  I have been in the early childhood education field for more than 30 years, mainly on the school aged side of things.  I received my CDA from Texas State University and attended Sam Houston State University – teaching children is my passion!  One of the greatest pleasures of my life has been caring for my husband and raising my amazing son, Nick.  They bring joy to my life everyday and I am truly blessed to have them both in my life.

I am very blessed to be part of the LSP Woodlands team.  I feel that the learning environment and family friendly atmosphere of our school embodies the spirit of what Early Childhood education should be. I love supporting our teachers and staff, as I feel happy teachers lead to happy kiddos. If you can’t find me in the front office, peek into the classrooms – I really love to snuggle on our juicy babies when I get the chance.
