Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool is recognized within the industry as a premier early childhood education program and is proud to be a part of the Chesterfield, Missouri community. 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 childcare franchise system provides the School Operators.

Our secured Kiddie Cams™ allows parents of enrolled students and school leaders to view our classrooms in real-time from monitors placed within the school.  Cameras are set up in every classroom and playground and the video footage is displayed in full color, high definition. Kiddie Cams™ further provide the opportunity for live streaming to the executive leadership and support team in Springfield, Missouri for quality assurance by trained professionals.

Our user-friendly LuvNotes™ is a secured platform that allows your child’s teacher to stay in better communication with you throughout the day. When you log into the LuvNotes™ system, you’ll see a classroom snapshot, which includes a list of planned activities for the day, menu details and important announcements. It also includes a personalized daily report on your child with notes on specific activities, disposition, and sleeping and eating habits during the day. You can access this secure information on any device with access to the internet.

Our master planned and accredited curriculum, Creatively Shine™, is based off the newest research and trends to prepare your children to enter their educational career equipped with cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills. At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, we believe a child’s work is play! We teach children lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and organized play. We know that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives!

“We moved to the city when our daughter was 3.5 years old. She instantly took a liking to the school, administration, teachers and friends. She adapted quickly to the new school and instantly fell in love with her new surroundings. She will be leaving the school this year for Kindergarten and I couldn’t be happier with the experience she received while at Little Sunshine’s. She is loved and cared for, taught by a group of amazing professionals and have achieved everything that I could wish for her in the last year. We will miss you LSP!” – Michaela H. (University City LSP Family)


“We can’t recommend LSP enough. The staff are so loving and respectful of all the kids, and are deeply committed to building a strong school community with a focus on excellence and continuous improvement. They keep the kids so busy, with fun play-based daily curriculum, monthly educational units, and enrichment opportunities (like art, music, science, gym) starting in the infant rooms. Our daughter will enter PreK this year with the third-party assessed academic readiness of a 6.5-year-old. We often find our toddler counting to himself in Spanish these days. The staff are so attentive and willing to work with families to meet all of a child’s unique needs. And the school’s added features like LuvNotes (a daily email including photos, videos, and notes about your child’s day) and the Watch Me Grow system (live video stream from all classrooms and common areas) will calm any parental anxieties. I’m sure I sound like a commercial or something, but we have been so thrilled with our experience there that it’s hard not to brag. Definitely check it out!” – The Rosman Family (University City LSP Family)
