Welcome to Little Sunshine's Playhouse & Preschool®

Our preschools offer a safe, secure & nurturing environment through our Distinctive Services and Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®. Everything we do is designed to inspire a love of learning, imagination, and curiosity through play.

Little Sunshine’s is like a second home to our little one. I could not be more thankful that she loves going to school every day to see her teachers and friends. It is obvious how much she is learning - she surprised my husband and I by counting to 10 in Spanish all by herself one day!"

Our Proprietary Reggio Emilia-Inspired Curriculum

Creatively Shine®

Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®, is based on the latest research and trends to prepare your children for their educational careers, equipping them with cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and language skills.

At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® we believe a child’s work is play. We teach your children age-appropriate lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and purposeful play. We believe children who enjoy learning at a young age will carry it with them throughout their lives.

Each month we have original projects, provide each classroom with new materials that reflect the monthly theme and provide related activities to support the individual concepts of the “whole child.”
