“Hi! My name is Rebekah and I am the Area Manager for the Kansas City market. I started working with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool in July 2016. My role with the company is to provide onsite support for the school leadership team with a strong focus on marketing efforts and bringing high-quality Early Childhood Education to the Kansas City market.
I graduated from Kansas State University in 2005 with a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications and Human Ecology and began my Early Childhood career in 2006. I moved into a management role soon after and stayed for the next six years. I then stepped into the Higher Education field and worked with a college for four years before returning to my roots at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool. My days with LSP are spent working within the Leawood and Overland Park communities, at various family events in the area and visiting the teams at each of our Kansas City schools.
I look forward to meeting each of you and getting to know your child and family!”

Hi! My name is Kristy and I am the Co-Director of Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool in Overland Park. In May 2009, I graduated from Tennessee Technological University earning a degree in Elementary Education. While obtaining my degree, I concentrated on both the academics related to early childhood development and organizations, which commit themselves to fostering early learning.
Shortly after graduation my husband and I relocated to the Northern Virginia area, from Knoxville, TN. I began my career with LLE Group, first as a classroom teacher, assistant director and then program director. We have recently relocated to Overland Park and I am very excited to start our new journey.
The tender years prior to kindergarten are very important in a child’s life, and I look forward to working with you to promote a productive academic and social setting for students of all ages. I believe in fostering strong relationships with both students and parents.
I’m very excited to begin my journey with you and your children at Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool!
“I have to say, I’m absolutely in love with this child care center!! I can leave my daughter there with full confidence she is being loved and cared for by everyone there. My daughter can sometimes be a bit emotional at drop off time and they handle it with such professionalism. They are able to redirect her attention and help her find a happy place quickly. Also, the fact that I can tap into the cameras from my smart phone any time is a huge bonus. My husband and I were nervous about daycare but they took all doubt away. We wouldn’t want her anywhere else!!” – The Palmer Family
“Little Sunshine’s Playhouse has been amazing with my almost four year old daughter. The teachers are able to interact and educate in such creative and innovative ways. The kids are always learning through lessons, creative play, art, dance, and interactive Ipad videos. I love how the monthly themes play into the lessons each week. The center is visually stunning…with the colors and murals and even the unique playground equipment that truly makes you feel like you are in a castle. The food that is prepared is second to none…even if my sometimes picky child doesn’t always try it. The LSP staff are wonderful from the owners, directors and teachers. And they always throw in fun little surprises like grab and go breakfast items for parents to say thanks, and even a sock hop last week. The icing on the cake are the cameras that allow you to look in on your child and the report you get each day electronically that let’s you know all about how their day is going along with a photo or video. If you are looking for a place for your little one…definitely give LSP a call!” – The McNeal
“This is by far the best place my husband and I chose for our child. My baby just turned 1 and has never been at a day daycare. We were very anxious as parents hoping to find a place that is safe, hygienic, and a place where she can get love and attention from staff/management. We went to several places but when we entered Little Sunshines Playhouse we knew this was it.
It’s been a month now and my baby is loving it there ! It was not easy the first week as she was experiencing separation anxiety due to being in a new setting and people, but I was so impressed with how well the management, the director, and teachers continued to provide her love and supported us throughout the transition process.
The owner, director, management team, teachers, and all other staff are very friendly and professional. We have never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I highly recommend everyone this center for their child!” – The Saigal Family
