Kaelan Darnell, Assistant Director

My name is Kaelan Darnell and I would like to take the time to welcome you to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool! I am honored to have the opportunity to work for a wonderful company and represent the Rogers, AR location as the Assistant Director.

Being the eldest of six children, my passion for helping others and working with children developed at a very young age. Throughout school, I was a board member of FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) and took courses in Family Consumer Sciences. This prepared me in developing family bonds, setting career goals, and being active in the community.

I began my journey with LSP in 2014 as an assistant teacher. Over a two year span I have had the privilege of learning the role of lead teacher, head teacher, and now Assistant Director.  Being a part of the LSP team has definitely been a blessing in my life. Building relationships with the families and watching each child grow and flourish in the classroom are just a couple of the things that make my job amazing. I look forward to the future and cannot wait to help you begin your journey at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse!

On another note, I am the mother of two handsome little boys, Noah and Eli. When I am not working, I am enjoying every little moment spent with my family! They are my biggest motivation for everything I do.

“Our 2-year-old daughter started attending Little Sunshine’s about a month ago and she absolutely loves it (and we do too)! She has been thriving with her learning and her speech has improved tremendously since she started attending. It makes me feel good that when I pick her up in the afternoon she asks me ‘why did you come and get me?’ We love the communication we get each day on what she did, what she learned, how her mood was, & how/what she ate. We are so glad that we chose LSP and would recommend it to any parent wanting to send their child somewhere clean, fun, safe and that values teaching the kids while they are there!” – Jason K.


“We have not attended long but it only took one day and my 2 1/2 year old started running in excited and ready for the day. When I pick him up he is smiling and tells me all about his day. The staff has been very friendly and helpful! The facility has always been clean regardless of the time of day I visit.” – The Lee Family


“I could go on and on about how amazing LSP-Rogers is. Making the decision of a daycare for our first child was no easy task. We toured and visited pretty much all of the daycares in the area before making a decision. LSP- Rogers has done nothing but prove we made the right decision over and over again. We even debated if daycare was the best decision compared to a Nanny. Her teachers (all of them and the Directors) are all like a nanny to her. We were worried that she wouldn’t get the attention needed as a newborn with a class full of other babies and we have been overjoyed with the closeness we feel with her teachers. They always tell us about her day and make sure that anything we ask is taken care of. The daily report we receive about her entire day along with pictures and the security cameras were just the reassurance this OCD mama needed. Our expectations were honestly probably a bit unrealistic and LSP-Rogers has exceeded them in every single way. If you are looking for a daycare I would highly recommend!” – The Fields Family
