Mrs. Marci

Program Director

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.

Mrs. Jen

Assistant Director

Hi! My name is Jen and I’ve been with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® of Granite Bay since opening day in November 2017. 

My journey began as the head teacher of the infant and toddler educational programs, then had the opportunity to move up as the assistant director. I love everything about our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum and I have always loved working in the early education industry.

I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri where I graduated from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education in 2009. I have been working in the early childhood field for over 10 years now. I have a very strong, passionate belief in the importance of early childhood education and I am so excited to be on this journey with my LSP family. 

In my spare time, I like to venture around my Sacramento neighborhood and take road trips with my husband, Justin and our puppy, Fiona. We also enjoy visiting nearby beaches and going to concerts.

I look forward to meeting you and your family.

What our LSP Families are Saying​

Switched our son to this school and could not be more pleased with our decision. We changed over from Goddard and I cannot rave enough about the incredible administration and teachers. The administration is very receptive such a change from the last school. The teachers send such personalized descriptions of my son's day and they take adorable pictures. Already my son calls his teacher's by name and hugs them tightly before leaving. He is only two but very well understands when he is loved somewhere. This was the best decision we made. We care so much about his education and him being comfortable and this school has become his second home. I appreciate their welcoming smiles and loving arms they greet my son with. Definitely recommend!

This school is absolutely amazing in every way! My twins have been attending for almost 3 years. The teachers are by far the best there are...loving, compassionate, creative, smart, patient and fun! The facility is clean and gorgeous and they serve high quality, nutritional food. My boys just love going there everyday and have created strong bonds with the teachers. The staff goes above and beyond for our family. My boy's are ready for T-K! Thank you to the most amazing teachers in the Treasure Island classroom! Best experience we've had at a daycare/preschool. Highly recommended.
