Mrs. Pam, Area Manager


Hello LSP Families, my name is Pam Fegan and I am thrilled to be the Area Manager of the Illinois schools!  I have been with Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool since January 2016 and helped open the Willowbrook school in June 2016 as the Program Director!  I have worked in the early childhood field for over 20 years, in the classroom and management roles.  I have always had a passion in working with children and making a difference in each child’s life.  These years are so crucial in their learning and development, I feel honored to be part of it and work along side all our amazing teachers and leaders.

On a personal note, my husband John and I have three amazing children.  We love spending family time together doing fun arts and crafts, cooking together, and anything outdoors.   We also love to travel and find new adventures to see and enjoy together.

I am really looking forwarded to expanding our LSP family in Illinois and meeting you all.  Welcome to the LSP family!

Mrs. Colleen, Program Director

Ms. Colleen, Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of Schaumburg Program Director

“Hello! My name is Colleen! Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is truly what my passion is. It has been a pleasure growing with the company and getting to know not only the children but the families as well. LSP has truly become my second family and I can’t wait to grow my family within the Schaumburg community.

I am married to my best friend, Dan! We also have a daughter that is 15 months, who always keeps us amused and lights up our mornings and nights. On the weekends, I spend a lot of time with my family and always working on new projects in our home. There is never a dull moment in our household.

I love watching the children use their creative minds and learn through play with our Reggio Emilia Curriculum. From infants when they are exploring with sensory bottles until pre-kindergarten where they are expressing their emotions with documentation and making faces out of rocks.

Being in child care is the most rewarding job possible. When I walk into a classroom and immediately have children hugging your legs and putting the biggest smile on your face, is the best feeling. I want these children to feel at home when they are at school and be excited to come and learn!

I always make sure I build a relationship with each child and family to understand them better to show my utmost respect for their lives at school and outside of school. My goal each day is to ensure that every family has a genuine and positive experience at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and they are getting the love that they deserve!”

“Little Sunshine is a wonderful place and the staff is amazing. They are professional, yet warm and the transparency is something I was really looking for in a place. I can call to check in at any timeor drop in. It gives me a sense of comfort to see she is well taken care of when I am not there.” – The White Family (Willowbrook, IL Family)


“Before selecting LSP as our daycare provider, we toured almost every other facility in the area, and LSP came out the best in terms of hours, services, classrooms and curriculum. The cost can appear to be high, but what we found is that any other nearby daycares that come in at a lower cost have significantly shorter hours with no uniform teaching philosophy.

Our son loves being dropped off at LSP every day, and immediately gives a huge smile when he sees his teacher. The daily LuvNotes are great!

Overall, I feel extremely fortunate that we had our son right after this facility opened. Don’t know what we would do if we didn’t have LSP for daycare.” – Jordan E. (Willowbrook, IL Family)


“Our family is very happy with the teachers and daycare. It is a clean and healthy environment for kids. My son loves teachers, as well we do. I would recommend it. ” – Anna K. (Willowbrook, IL Family)
