“As the Program Director at our San Antonio-Dominion location, my passion for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse runs deep! I began my journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse years ago in Springfield, Missouri. Initially, I was certain that teaching was my passion until I promoted up through the ranks into senior management at our Springfield III location.
When the opportunity arose to open up my very own market, I jumped on it and in March 2016 my husband and I relocated to San Antonio to launch this beautiful school. My favorite part of my role within Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is creating lasting relationships with my students and families. I look forward to meeting your family and embarking on this journey together!
“My name is Elia and I am so honored and excited to be serving as your Assistance Director for the very first Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool in San Antonio! I am eager to take this wonderful journey with you and looking forward to building bonds and getting to know each and every family. I am very passionate about being an advocate for your child. Being a unified team not only with staff but with families will ensure that every child has an opportunity to thrive and succeed in all areas of development.
I am originally from California; there I began my journey in Early Childhood Education at UCLA. You name it I have done it in this field. I have over 25 years of experience and knowledge. My goal is to mentor all our staff and ensure that they as well as I continue learning and growing so that we are not only a support for the children and their families but for each other as well.
As this new journey begins with LSP, so does a personal one for my husband and I as we now find ourselves as “empty nesters”. Our baby is headed to TAMUCC. We are so proud of all our 3 children! On my free time, I enjoy spending time with our 2-year old granddaughter and our 2 fur babies. I enjoy crafting and trying out various DIY projects when they turn out the way they should (he-he-he).
I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. Please know one of my goals is to ensure that all families and staff know that they are always welcome to come to me!”
“We wouldn’t send our kids anywhere else. This facility is clean, all the staff is friendly and knows every child, and we love the curriculum. They strictly follow the student to teacher ratio and all the stuff goes above and beyond to create the best environment for the children. There aren’t many daycares in San Antonio that is willing to cloth diaper with no questions asked. They are strict with security and I have never questioned whether or not my children are safe. I lov…e the cameras in every part of the facility where the children are and that I can always see them throughout the day. The luvnotes are fun to receive to see how the kids did that day. The only thing that would make this place better for my family is to be able to send lunch and snacks with my kids. But it is nice that they provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks along with the menu for each week to know what your kids are eating. So thanks, LSP, for getting it right!” – Renee
“This is the best daycare out there. Seriously. The staff is awesome, the facility is amazing and the kids are truly loved. Management is highly qualified and caring too.” – The Wilson Family
“My husband and I could not be more thankful for LSP! Everyday I drop my son off, I know he will be in the best care. His teachers and everyone at LSP are extremely knowledgable, and caring. The environment is educational and stimulating for our infant son. We love being able to check in during the day with the kiddie cams and luv notes! Thank you LSP, we appreciate you!” – The Green Family
“We started our 11 month old, at the time, with Little Sunshine when it opened in January. This has been our first experience with a daycare, and we are more than happy with this school. The staff are top notch- you can feel the love the teachers have for our daughter and she’s excited to see them every morning. You feel like a family here. We are greeted by name every morning when we come in and it seems all of the staff know my daughter by name. They provide supplies that I understand most daycares require the parents to provide and their meals are healthy and borderline gourmet. You can look in on your little one at any time through their cameras. I look forward to her daily report that is sent every afternoon that includes photos and video from the day. I can really tell the progress my daughter is making since going to Little Sunshine and the best feeling is knowing she is in a loving and safe environment while I’m at work. Can’t say enough good things about Little Sunshine.” – The Tschirhart Family
