Hi, my name is Jodi Lamping and I recently relocated back to KC from Arizona and am very thrilled to be back in the Midwest! I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Early Childhood Education and have many years of experience in the childcare world! I am extremely excited to be part of an amazing school like Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and look forward to experiencing my days with you and your wonderful children!
On a more personal note, I just celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary and have 2 amazing children that I am very proud of! We also have the best dog, our German Shepherd, Rocky.

Hi! My name is Jordan Kendrick. I am the Assistant Director at the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse- Leawood! I started with Little Sunshine’s in August of 2013 as the Assistant Teacher in the Pre-K classroom. I was quickly promoted to the Lead Pre-K teacher. I fell in love with LSP. I knew that I wanted to continue to grow with this amazing company, and that I wanted to get into management. After about four years with LSP I was promoted to the Assistant Director position in Fall of 2017. Prior to joining the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse team, I taught two, three, and four year olds. I am currently working towards my degree in Early Childhood Development, and taking some business classes! I am very excited to further my education, and continue growing with this amazing company. I look forward to building relationships with you and your child, and watching them hit developmental milestones!
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my fiancé! We just recently bought a house together, and are very excited to tie the knot in February of 2019. We have two German Shepherds named Daisy and Hercules who we treat like our children! I am the oldest of four sisters, so I grew up with a very close and big family. My adorable niece just turned one, and I love getting to spend quality time with her! I also enjoy the outdoors, shopping, and Netflix!
