Our Austin, TX Leadership Team
Area Manager & Program Director
Hello Families of Northwest Austin! My name is Kelly, and I am delighted to serve as the Area Manager for our two preschools located in Austin, TX. I, additional to Area Manager, I also serve as the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s of Austin, TX in the Four Points area. I look forward to getting to know your family and partnering with you to make the most of these crucial years of your child’s early education.
I have been in the early education and daycare industry since 2015 and am so grateful for the countless lessons I have learned from my relationships with students, families, and teachers. I have lived in Austin since 2001 when I moved to attend the University of Texas.
My husband and I are blessed with two amazing boys who love the outdoors, especially fishing, hiking and swimming. My youngest attends Little Sunshine’s and I couldn’t be happier to watch him learn and grow in an environment that fosters curiosity and compassion.
Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I am excited to serve as the Assistant Program Director for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Austin, TX at Four Points. Growing up in a family of educators, I have always felt I belong in the early education and daycare setting and have cherished the 17 years I have spent in the field, educating a variety of ages.
My career thus far with Little Sunshine’s is a bit unique. I had the privilege of joining the Little Sunshine’s team when the Lakeway school opened in 2015. I started as a lead preschool teacher and was promoted to head teacher. In July 2020, I helped open the Austin location. I am eager to get to know, serve, and grow with all of you. I have always cherished the relationship between an educator and a child, and I could not be more thrilled to work for a company that shares my ideas and beliefs. I am proud to be a part of the best childcare programs in Austin, TX.
On a personal note, my husband and I have a 2-year-old daughter named Sydney, who is our absolute pride and joy! Our favorite things to do together are to spend time with our families cheering on the Longhorns, swimming, boating on the lake, and escaping to the mountains for skiing and four-wheeling adventures.

What Our Austin Families Are Saying
I love Little Sunshine’s and so does my son (age 3). We both had a tough time with separation anxiety when he started preschool and the staff went above and beyond to help us settle in. Before we knew it they became like a second family and my son loves going to school! I look forward to receiving my LuvNotes from his teachers telling me all about the things he has learned and the fun activities he has done. They send the cutest pictures of him playing with his new friends! I still miss him while he’s gone but I feel confident he’s safe and I’m happy he’s happy!
My daughter has been attending Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Four Points since its opening and she has loved going to school every day there. The staff and teachers are wonderful, they have extra activities for the kids to participate in on a weekly basis and theme days throughout each month. She has loved all of her teachers! They get lots of outside time & have great center activities when inside. They have new topics each month for the kids to learn about. They also provide breakfast, lunch & 2 snacks throughout the day which is so wonderful!
We have been at this school since it opened in June 2020. The hours are great, my son loves the food, the teachers and staff are wonderful. Communication is great and you get daily notes about your child, what they did that day, what they ate, and also pictures! You can also easily communicate with the teachers online as well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
