“Hi there! My name is Taylor and I am honored to serve as the Area Manager for the San Antonio and Austin metro locations.
My journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse began years ago in Springfield, Missouri where our company was founded. I began my LSP journey as a classroom teacher and soon promoted up through the ranks into senior management at our Springfield III location. In 2016 when the opportunity arose to launch the San Antonio market, I jumped on the opportunity and relocated. Since 2016, my little family has made Texas our home and love every minute of it! My role within the company is providing operational guidance to the San Antonio/Austin metros and creating lasting relationships with our students, families and teachers.
On a personal note, my husband and I are always trying to keep up with our busy toddler, Thomas. We absolutely love every moment of parenthood! We enjoy spending time together outside, and love getting away to Port Aransas beach every chance we get.”
“Hi! I am so thrilled to be the Program Director of Little Sunshine Playhouse-Stone Oak. I am a graduate of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2007! After being a stay at home mom for four years, I decided that my children would benefit from social interaction and enrolled them in a local child care program; I then began working at the program my children attended as a floater in 2010. In 2011, I was promoted to Assistant Director. My children and I created great memories during this time, and preschool was their second home. I enjoyed working with families and being an advocate for children. In 2013, I left the child care field and committed myself to working with children through Child Protective Services. In 2015, I transferred to Texas Child Care Licensing as an inspector and investigator. Though I have continued to work with children in a variety of ways, I feel most empowered when I am in a school, working hands on with families! Providing a trusting, loving, and safe environment for children is so important to me, and I feel LSP’s philosophy encompasses my very own.
On a more personal note, my partner and I, James, are raising two wonderful children, Catalina & Kenneth. Our family is rounded out by James’ three boys, Alex, Diego, and Austin, as well as three dogs and one cat! In our free time we enjoy visiting downtown San Antonio to explore different restaurants and museums; we also enjoy bowling, playing games at arcades and we have a family tradition of watching 80’s & 90’s movies every Friday night together! James and I like being active outside, as well, and enjoy camping, working out and going on motorcycle rides.
I look forward to meeting the families of Stone Oak and spreading the LSP magic to all of you!”
“Hello! My name is Candice and it is my pleasure to be the Assistant Director of LSP of Stone Oak.
My love for early childhood education began almost 10 years ago when I started working in a church childcare program and with private nanny opportunities.
I’ve been with Little Sunshine’s since 2016 when we opened our first preschool in San Antonio, located in Dominion. I was a teacher in the infant classroom and I truly loved it! I have always had a love for babies! It’s so fun watching them develop, gain motor skills and grow. It wasn’t long before I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge and passion for early childhood education by accepting a role as a Head Teacher. This experience helped me expand my leadership skills in so many ways and led me to the amazing opportunity to be the Assistant Director of your preschool.
A little about myself, I am a native San Antonian, born and raised. I enjoy spending my spare time with my husband and our three fur babies. We are having our first little one coming this December and are beyond excited to start this new chapter of ours! Both my husband and I are actively involved with our church with myself working with the little ones in our kid’s club.
I can’t wait to get to know each of you and your sweet children! “
“I love little sunshine it has been a very smooth transition for my son. He adjusted very well. Seeing my son live on the video has given so much peace of mind. Teachers Gisela and Rosa have been so supportive loving and caring. They have gone out of their way to make the kids comfortable. I trust them so much that i barely have the need to watch the video anymore. The director Teresa and the full staff is so welcoming and treat you so nice make u feel like a family and I am blessed to be a part of little sunshine playhouse family. Thank you so much guys for doing such a great job. This is the right place for our kid’s because they are treated so well and you feel safe and secured.” – The Maliek Family
