Ask any parent what sets Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool apart… and you’ll get a variety of answers (See Testimonials)! Our distinctive services have been designed to meet specific connection, communication, security, nutrition, and convenience desires of our families. These services position Little Sunshine’s Playhouse as the premiere early education innovator!
Our proprietary LuvNotes™ system is a user-friendly, secured platform that facilitates better communication with parents throughout the day. Parents will receive a Classroom Snapshot, which will include a list of planned activities for the day, menu details, announcements and a Personalized Daily Reports with notes on specific activities, disposition/mood, sleeping and eating trends during each day. Each LuvNote includes photos and/or videos of each child while at school. Parents will be able to access this secure information via web interface or any smartphone with internet access. Each parent will also receive daily email notification when their child’s reports are available, with a link provided for convenience to view the report without any hassle of logging in.
Red Carpet Service™
If you’re like most parents, the mornings are a hectic time of day – we understand! That is why we created our Red Carpet Service™ which facilitates fast, easy and fun morning drop-offs. This service is offered during the busiest time each morning to help keep drop-off running quickly and to provide an additional convenience to parents. When you arrive, our school managers will happily greet and assist you with getting your child(ren) out of the vehicle, and will escort them to their to classrooms so you can be on your way. We’ve found this to be not only a service of convenience to families, but also a great tool to combat separation anxiety in toddlers; as it is easier for them to separate quickly and be immediately distracted by a calm, friendly and familiar routine.
Nutrition & On-Site Chef
We understand the positive long-term impact of providing children healthy, nutrient-rich meals. Our dedication to nutrition in meal service is taken very seriously by the chefs at each of our preschools. Our menus (posted weekly) include only the freshest ingredients and exceed all nutritional guidelines. Please view our Sample Menu.
We ask that parents bringing in celebratory items for events or birthdays to consider our nutritional goals and discuss treat selections with your School Director.
The entrance to our facilities are secured throughout the day. Families will need to enter a numeric pass-code on a keypad to enter the building and (in most cases) again to move from the lobby to the classrooms providing a double-secured facility. Our child release policies are strictly enforced for every child’s protection. Background checks are reviewed and on file for every employee and educational enrichment teacher on premises. Other than those on campus as a parent, authorized pickup, employee or authorized enrichment instructor we have a strict no-visitor and no-solitation policy.
