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 that a child’s work is play. We teach children age-appropriate lessons, manners, and social skills all through creative and purposeful play. We believe that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry 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.”

Our Leadership Team

Mrs. Shalena, Assistant Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of Alpharetta

Mrs. Shalena

Program Director

Hello! My name is Shalena, and it is my pleasure to be the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Alpharetta. I have been working in Early Childhood Education for 21 years. Throughout my time in ECE, I have been a classroom assistant as well as a lead teacher as well as a music teacher. For the past few years, I have been working in child care management training and leading teachers to be their best every day. 

 A little bit about me, I was born and raised right here in Alpharetta GA. I graduated from Milton High School. I have my Associates Degree in Information Technology as well as my CDA (Child Development Associate) Certification. I currently still live in Alpharetta with my family. I am blessed to have an amazing 14-year-old son who currently attends Milton High School. AJ keeps me and his dad super busy taking him to baseball and basketball games. In my free time, I love to sing and take dance classes at the gym as well as boxing classes with my family. 

I love working with children and seeing the amazing things that they can do and create. I love their innocence and curiosity and their pure love for people and fun. I look forward to getting to know each child and their families as I do my best to be an example of great leadership and a smiling face each day.

Ms. Carolyn

Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Carolyn and I am thrilled to be your Assistant Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool® of Alpharetta.

I loved my time as Program Director for LSP Ozark, and I’m so excited to transfer to Alpharetta and continue my journey with such an amazing company! I am a Ball State University alumni with a degree in Elementary Education. I have always loved working with children and started teaching in different forms at an early age. Although I headed in to business after college, my passion has always been early childhood education. I love bringing art, music and creativity into the classroom to help teach mindfulness and self-confidence. I look forward to building meaningful relationships with all of our students and families. My goal is to continue to foster a nurturing environment with each family here at Little Sunshine’s.

On a more personal note, I am a proud mama of two young children. My son is currently attending Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool, and my daughter is in public school. We love exploring all over the country. We are all excited to get acquainted with Georgia and its southern charm!

I can't say enough great things about the people and facility at LSP! Little Sunshine was hands down the best place I toured when trying to find the perfect fit for our little baby girl and it has proven to be one of the best decisions I have made! They were so supportive knowing I was a first time mom making the transition back to work and I do not worry for a second during the day knowing she is in great loving hands. The staff there have been so accommodating and supportive from day one and are truly the best of the best. From her loving teachers in her classroom, the amazing Chef who not only makes the best food but also takes any chance she can get to give my little one love and attention, and the great administrative staff, you really can't ask for a better team to be such a great support system for you and your little one! We couldn't imagine sending our daughter anywhere else!

LSP is like a second home to our little one. I couldn't 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! Their chef prepares amazing meals, too! I am jealous when reading the menu! I am so glad I made the switch from a different daycare when she turned 1. The atmosphere is so positive, warm, and attentive. Thank you for everything LSP!

Our daughter has been going to Little Sunshine's Playhouse & Preschool since she was 1 (she is now 3.5) and we couldn't ask for a better place for her to be during the week while we are at work. The staff is hands down the best in town - across the board from communication, professionalism, education of students and overall general concern for each and every child in their care.

We have loved the attention our daughter receives from the moment she walks in every day until she heads home. Each day is structured with learning, free play and includes Spanish daily, cooking class with their onsite chef and sports class on the regular. Our daughter no doubt is reaping the benefit of such great all around education and learning development.

I cannot recommend Little Sunshine's Playhouse & Preschool enough and certainly promote it to other parents looking in the area for top notch childcare.
