Our Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Marci, and I am excited to be the program director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool® of Granite Bay.
I have worked in childcare for over 20 years, 15 of which were as a full time Nanny for several amazing families. Those wonderful years and relationships shaped me into the caregiver I am today. I entered the early childhood education industry as a teacher’s aide then as I gained my early childhood education units I became lead teacher.
When I saw Little Sunshine’s Playhouse being built I knew that it is where I needed to be. I had the pleasure of being a part of opening this school and went from lead toddler teacher to head teacher and now program director.
On a personal note, I have a beautiful little boy and we love trips to the coast, camping, spending time with family and friends and just hanging out together.
I am so excited to be a part of this journey with you and your family. I love to see the smiles on the faces of all our students as they walk through the doors and run into their classrooms excited to see their teachers and classmates. I look forward to watching each child grow and learn in the years to come.
Hi, my name is Bethany, and I am so excited to step into the role of Assistant Director for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® of Granite Bay, CA.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have absolutely loved babies, so it is no wonder that I have found myself working with preschoolers. Not only are children so cute and precious, but I truly adore the things they say and do.
In 2008 I graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a degree in Child Development and Family Studies with an emphasis in Infants and Toddlers. In the past I was a career nanny for six and a half years before I transitioned into the preschool setting as a teacher. I worked as a preschool teacher for just over two years before I was led to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Granite Bay. I have loved being in the Head Teacher role at the school, but I am thrilled to be a part of the leadership team now.
I know that leaving your most beloved little ones in childcare is not always the easiest thing to do, but it is our mission to provide your children with the most love and care and want them to have the best preschool experience imaginable. Rest assured we are here for you and your children’s emotional and educational needs. I look forward to meeting and building a relationship with each and every one of you.
