2019 National Teacher of the Year

At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool, we are firm believers that our preschool teachers are the game-changers. They show up each day eager to educate, connect with and inspire their students.

To continually honor our passionate educators, we identify and award a National Teacher of the Month each month. This award is highly regarded among our staff and is just one way we continually invest in our educators who make Little Sunshine’s Preschool loved by so many families across the nation.

After receiving hundreds of nominees throughout the year and a ton of great feedback from families on the 10 Teacher of Year Nominees, we are pleased to announce Ms. Kelly as the 2019 LSP National Teacher of the Year.

Ms. Kelly is from our Littleton, CO location. She is the lead teacher in Neverland, the infant classroom and has been with LSP since 2016! What Kelly enjoys most about Little Sunshine’s is the amazing leadership team, parents and children. Everyone is so supportive and are always encouraging me to do better.

When asked what inspires her Kelly responded, “I am inspired by Lynda, Amy and Sue! They are all great leaders at the school and are always there to support me in all I do.”

Here’s what Littleton Program Director, Lynda, had to say about Ms. Kelly, “Kelly has been with LSP Littleton since August of 2016! She has become such an integral part of our family. We are so grateful to her and all of her hard work with the infants she cares for each day. She is an incredible teacher and forms bonds with the families that are unbreakable! Ms. Kelly is reliable and always comes to work with a positive attitude and love for her students. We are looking forward to working with Kelly for many more years to come!”

Even when not at Little Sunshine’s, Kelly spends most of her time camping, riding horses and spending time with her boyfriend and family.

Congratulations, Kelly! Thank you for all you do for your students and their families. It is evident how much you are truly cherished. We are very grateful your path led you to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse!
