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.

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.”

Ms. Gini

Program Director

Hi! My name is Gini, and I am so excited to be the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Erie. I love watching children and seeing their rapidly growing skills and knowledge. The brain grows the most during the first 6 years of life, what a gift to foster this growth and learning! 

I have been working in early childhood education since 2006. I received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Fort Lewis College in 2011 and received my Master’s in Early Childhood Education from University of Colorado Denver in 2015. 

I became a mother in 2022 to my son, Alistair, but have been a dog mom to Dorothy for 12 years before then! In my free time, I enjoy yoga (both teaching and taking at classes at CorePower Yoga), reading, and horror movies.  

I am so excited to meet your family!

What Our Families Are Saying

5 Stars

My one-year-old recently joined the Treasure Island classroom and I am so pleased with our experience thus far. My kiddo has a little bit of separation anxiety but he has warmed up to her teacher pretty quickly and she is absolutely wonderful at sending us all of the app updates and pictures throughout the day. The LuvNotes my husband and I receive really make a huge difference in giving us peace of mind.

We started our little one with Little Sunshine’s during COVID in 2020. She was just 11 weeks and we had SO many fears as new parents, but Director and Assistant Director were so supportive and loving that it made us feel much more at ease (even though I still cried driving away for about a month – hello new mom and hormones!). Our daughter is now 1 year old and in a different classroom, and we’re still just so pleased with Little Sunshine’s. Her teachers ARE THE BEST and they write wonderful LuvNotes that make us smile when we hear how much fun she is having with her friends, what she’s exploring, and if she enjoyed her meals. Our tiny human loves her time there, she’s engaged with all kinds of fun stuff they do in class and it’s clear that she’s growing confidence in her new skills and learning so much every day. We’re so happy to be with Little Sunshine’s and look forward to years to come 🙂

I was heartbroken when I found out my son’s daycare was closing their infant room, but am so thankful that we found Little Sunshine’s Playhouse. We absolutely love it here! The director and assistant director are so friendly, personable, and caring! Most importantly, my son loves going every day! He is never sad and has learned so much already! The teachers are doing a great job. I’m happy to know that he has been able to build strong real with the staff! I also love the daily notes and photos that are sent about their day! I look forward to it every afternoon! As an educator myself, I have really high expectations for child care/school for my children! I would absolutely recommend LSP.
