“Our kids have been going to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool since January 2012, and we couldn’t have chosen a better place for our precious children. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The teachers have become like an extension to our family. They provide a well-rounded learning experience in a caring environment. Our daughter enjoys her dance class very much and loves her dance teacher, Ms. Erin. She enjoys the pottery workshops as well. Ms. Shelly and Ms. Jackie, in the management, have been very prompt and helpful. They immediately call us if there is any concern and respond to our calls or emails quickly. A big shout-out to Ms. Diane, Ms. Mary, Ms. Wanda, and Ms. Jennifer, primary teachers for our kids. Also, to Ms. Linsey, Ms. Josie, Ms. Lauren, and others who have made a positive impact on our kids. Our son still runs to his previous teachers, Ms. Ashley and Ms. Rachel, whenever he sees them! They have nurtured and disciplined our kids with love and patience. Thank you, Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, for providing a conducive environment for our kids to learn and grow.”

“We could not be more thrilled with LSP. Our son stayed at home with a nanny for the first 19 months of his life before starting at LSP in UCity. Jack’s teachers, Mrs. Madison and Ms. Dionna, helped him transition into the preschool environment, and he is learning so much each day. Words cannot describe how informative the school is with Jack’s daily report card, as well as events, menus, illnesses, etc. They over-communicate and as a parent, I love that! The Director, Katherine and the Assistant Director, Tara, are so wonderful, and we feel so luck that Jack is in the best hands!”

“There are so many great things to say about Little Sunshine Playhouse & Preschool, it is hard to know where to start. Ben has been going to Little Sunshine since he was a year old.  Now he is four.  Making a decision to trust your child’s care with another is a hard decision.  From the first moment my husband and I stepped through the door at Little Sunshine, I felt the warm, loving environment.  I felt Ben would be in good hands.  All of the teachers and staff have been very loving, energetic and nurturing.  Teacher turnover is very low, which I think has made Ben’s time at Little Sunshine more enjoyable and a stable environment for him. I also want to add, the education in Pre-K has been exceptional.  Ben is learning so many wonderful things.  I have seen such a change in his writing, reading, knowledge of numbers, colors, days of the week etc. Ben has food allergies, but he teachers and staff have been very accommodating to his needs without making him feel left out or different. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this place.  Thank you for giving such great care to my son and all of the other children. “

“I visited a lot of schools before enrolling my son, Riley, at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool. I’m convinced that this is the best program I saw, with the best teachers. The teachers’ creativity combined with a great curriculum at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse create such a fun learning atmosphere that Riley really responds to. Every day I notice how much Riley is learning and he is so eager and proud to show me. He has also turned into quite the little bookworm and frequently wants to stay in his classroom and ‘read’ well after I’ve come to pick him up! I am especially grateful to Miss Blair for having the ability to not only teach the children as a group but for also being so tuned into Riley as an individual. Before enrolling Riley, I remember worrying that no one would be able to understand his wants, needs, frustrations, interests, etc. like I do, especially with him being at the age where he is just learning to use his words to express himself. Miss Blair has been outstanding in helping and encouraging Riley to do just that. I can’t imagine a better preschool experience and we’re so lucky to be a part of it.”

“Our daughter has been attending Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool for several years now. We are very pleased with the facilities and staff. It is always kept extremely clean and safe. We are always greeted with a warm smile and friendly hello from all of the staff. The Directors and teachers always go out of their way to make sure our needs are meet and that our daughter feels comfortable. The environment is filled with learning, but also done with care and compassion. Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is definitely a wonderful choice for our daughter!”

“My husband and I have been very happy with our decision to enroll our children with Little Sunshine’s. During our initial search, we felt it was important to find childcare that maintained high standards for safety and education, but was also a place that our kids would feel at home, eat healthy and have fun. I was also looking for teachers that enjoy their jobs and are truly happy to take care of my girls. Little Sunshine’s delivers all of this, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a great daycare or preschool for their children!!”

“We have loved our past 5 years at Little Sunshine’s Preschool.  They provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere where our daughter can meet her full potential. Director Ellen has been with our child throughout most of her time at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and she absolutely loves “Miss Ellen.”  Ellen is like family to us and we know we can bring questions or concerns to her at any time.  The teachers have a background in the field and have a passion for helping little minds grow. The holiday parties and special after hours events give parents the opportunity to interact with teachers in a relaxed environment.  It has been a rewarding experience for parents and children alike.”

“My little girls have been fortunate enough to be part of Little Sunshine’s since they were 18 months.  I feel extremely blessed that their first exposure to a school environment has been with the teachers and staff at Little Sunshine’s!  They absolutely love school because they feel safe, confident and loved each and every day.  I am forever grateful for the people at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool who have helped create such an intimate, positive and encouraging atmosphere for my girls.   As a nervous mom, I have sincerely appreciated the constant communication Little Sunshine’s Playhouse provides.  Through the daily LuvNotes, I know the daily curriculum, how they interacted with peers, how they ate and slept, and even a picture of them having fun at school.  Not only have my girls learned basic academic skills that have prepared them for kindergarten, but most importantly, they have a love for learning.  Thank you Little Sunshine’s Playhouse!”

“Our daughter has been at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool for nearly four years now and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. We were initially drawn to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse for the security, peace of mind, and facilities…all of which are amazing. Our daughter is now in the Pre-K program and we continue to be impressed with not only the curriculum and programs, but also all of the amazing teachers and staff (many of which are like family after 4 years!). She absolutely loves the themes the curriculum is centered around each month and can’t wait to share what she learned every day when we pick her up. The technology that Little Sunshine’s Playhouse uses is an amazing bonus. Every day we can read the daily summary of what the class learned, how our daughter’s day went and even see a picture or video right from our phone before we pick her up. We’ve found it to be a great tool to continue the education topics they are working on at school in our home as well. Thank you Little Sunshine’s Playhouse for all you do!”

Thank you so much for the care and love you give our little Tatum.  Little Sunshine has been a great extension of our home and we know that she is in good hands when we leave her with you.  She is always excited to go to school each morning and has lots of things to share each afternoon.  We appreciate your commitment to loving all kids, having fun, and learning.”

“My son was born December 29, 2012 and I got to spend 8 precious weeks at home with him before going back to work. The first day care he went to was HORRIBLE. I didn’t know if I was being an over protective, first time mom, or if they were really as bad as they seemed. I decided to go visit Little Sunshine’s to see what the environment was like. IT WAS NIGHT AND DAY! I loved it from the moment I walked in. All of the kids were happy there. Smiling and playing. I enrolled my son that day and haven’t regretted it at all. My child changed that first week there. He was more alert and active and smiled more! I leave there every morning with a smile on my face and a warm heart because I know Mrs. Molly and Ms. Kendra will love on my son all day. Thank you so much for not just meeting his basic needs, but for loving him and playing with him and pushing him to the next milestone each week. WE LOVE YOU!”

“I just wanted to write a little note to say a BIG thank you for the care and loving environment that Little Sunshine’s Playhouse has provided for Kainan his first week; and the peace of mind it has brought Jason and I. Kainan comes home so tired; but obviously he is engaged and so happy at school. We have loved getting to know the teachers, especially Ms.  Blair and Ms .Ashley. Their personal touch and detailed communication notes have been a window into Kainan’s day that we didn’t have before. It means a lot to a working mom, who spends more than 8 hours a work day away from her son. We do love the small class size that is more age appropriate. As you know, communication is a BIG thing to Jason and I; and I really appreciate Becky and Jackie making it a point to keep us in the loop as changes are made. Kainan loves coming to school now, and we are so happy to have found LSP.”
