Our Elkhorn, NE Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Allison, and I am excited to be your Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Elkhorn North.
I earned my Child Development Associate Credential in 2018. I love learning about Early Childhood Development and am currently working toward my Associates in Early Childhood Education. I also plan to get my Bachelor’s in Child Development. I have worked in child care for over 15 years, starting as an assistant teacher and working my way up to director.
There is nothing I love more than seeing the look on a child’s face after they have learned something new about their world. Children are our future, and it is our job as early childhood educators to help foster strong foundations for each child’s future success.
I grew up in a military family, which took us all over the world. However, Nebraska will always be home to me. I love experiencing all the seasons, sometimes in a single week! I have four beautiful children, all boys. As a family we love to camp and travel to new places. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking, and baking. I also love anything outdoors and binge-watching reality TV. I personally believe there is nothing life can throw at me that coffee and chocolate can’t fix!
