I’m proud to be part of the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse family. I was drawn to this company from the first time I saw the concept, over 10 years ago during the grand opening celebration of the LSP located in Springfield, Missouri. This is the most innovative curriculum and cutting edge technology in the childcare industry and I have no doubt that it will be a great fit in the Lakeway community. After obtaining my degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood Development, I moved to Austin to explore career options.
I immediately felt at home in Austin and was thrilled with all the city has to offer. However, one thing I noticed that was missing was the unique platform Little Sunshine’s Playhouse offers. It is an empowering feeling to be able to provide this deeply sought-after service and high quality early childhood education to Lakeway! The experiences I gained growing up in a family-owned business taught me how to offer exceptional customer service for families. The high-quality education based foundation of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and my love for working with children are a sure fit to bring the best in early childhood education to the Austin area.
“I started my journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in January of 2015! Over the course of the last couple of years I have had the honor to be a part of opening two locations; Gilbert and Lakeway. I instantly fell in love with the company and all that they have to offer early childhood care/education.
I had found a second home with Little Sunshine’s Gilbert and I am so grateful for all the opportunities they gave me. But as life happens I ended up in Austin, Texas in the fall of 2015 and had the opportunity to open another LSP in the Lakeway community. I was quickly promoted to Head Teacher at the end of 2015 and was grateful to be named Teacher of the Year 2016. After a year of learning the business side of the company I was than promoted to Co-Assistant Director.
Being a part of the LSP family has been a big blessing in my life. I look forward to the future and cannot wait to help you begin your journey at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse!”
“Hi my name is Leslie Pantojas, I am so excited to be a Co-Assistant Director for LSP Lakeway! I started my journey in child care in 2003, working with the 2 year old class. I then moved to the infant room where I fell in love with that age, and all the snuggles I got. In 2014 I got my Director’s Certificate and was a director for a preschool for 2 ½ years, I absolutely loved it! I love the interaction with the families and the children, and the relationships and bonds you create with all the families, it’s like an extension of your own family. I started working for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, Lakeway in April 2017 as Co-Assistant Director; I am looking forward to growing with the company and making great and wonderful memories with the families at our school.
A little about me, I was born in Laredo, Tx moved to Austin in 1992, I have 3 kids and got married to my best friend in July 2015. My kids are my world, they have been my strength through tough times and what gives me my drive. I enjoy reading, and going on vacations with my family.”
