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.”

Mrs. Sarah

Program Director

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am thrilled to serve you as the program director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Chesterfield, MO. 

It has been my privilege to work with children of all ages, from infants to school age, along with their families, in multiple capacities throughout the past 14 years. Upon completing my bachelor’s degree, I entered the field of early childhood education as a classroom teacher and loved it. After a few years, I returned to graduate school and in 2016 obtained my master’s degree in counseling, in which I focused heavily upon early childhood mental health and development.

My connection with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse began in May of 2016 at our University City location. My goal was to work with young children and their families, and I was drawn to Little Sunshine’s philosophy, passion, and dedication to nurturing young children and promoting healthy development. I first began as a classroom teacher, then stepped into the leadership role of head teacher, and am now honored to fulfill the position of program director!

On a personal note, I enjoy exploring Saint Louis and everything it has to offer! I am a huge musical theater enthusiast and love seeing live productions throughout the area, especially at The Muny! When not at a show, I enjoy cooking, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my wonderful husband, Kyle.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family!

Mrs. Jessica

Assistant Director

Hi families! My name is Jessica, and I am the Assistant Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Chesterfield. I have been working for Little Sunshine’s for the past seven years. I started off at our sister school in University City. I worked at that location for five years before I moved to Columbia, Missouri for a year and a half. When I heard the Chesterfield location was opening, I knew it was a sign we needed to move back to the Saint Louis area. At LSP Chesterfield I started as the head teacher and then was promoted to Assistant Director. I have loved getting to know all the families and your children over the past year.

I have been working with children in the preschool setting since 2010. Teaching children has been a passion of mine since I can remember. I love getting to see the excitement on the children’s faces every day, especially if they have been working hard on something and they finally connect all the pieces! It makes everything worth it!

Aside from my career, I love spending time with my family! I have been married since 2013 and have a daughter, Amelia and a son, Gavin. I also enjoy camping, spending time outdoors, going on the occasional Target shopping spree, crafting, going to Cardinals and Blues games, having bonfires, and spending time with my friends.

LSP has been AMAZING for my daughter, and myself! Every aspect, including teachers of my daughters classroom is amazing, caring, and so thoughtful for the kiddos and the parents. They (her teachers) have made a big impact on my daughter and her behaviors at home, too, which is amazing. She loves school and loves them both so much. I am so grateful for the leadership team for making our drop offs and pickups and all other questions and everything so easy up front too! We LOVE our LSP school ❤️

I CANNOT say enough good things about this school. Everything from the genuine care and friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the facility, flexibility to the parents hopes and needs to maintain routine and peace of mind, calm nature and vibe, willingness to help transition my kids by taking the extra time and attention to figure out what is truly best for them. We have a 4 year old and 2 year old that attend this school. This is very new (going to school) to my shy 2 year old since we have such a strong bond, so separation anxiety is a hard thing to cope with in the mornings (and would be ANYWHERE we went). The entire staff are so caring, understanding and patient to let her and I figure out a routine that works for us. The love and support has made more of a difference than they know. Being able to check in on her in the lobby and getting the LuvNote update in the afternoon has been so helpful to my own emotional mom roller coaster. All phases of raising our children are different and this is a facility that truly understands that and provides the patience and support without rushing the process to make it more convenient and tolerable for them. This school stands alone.
