Our Leadership Team

Mrs. Taylor, Area Manager of the Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool Texas Market

Mrs. Taylor

Area Manager

Hi there! My name is Taylor and I am honored to serve as your Area Manager for the San Antonio and Austin metro locations.

My journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse began years ago in Springfield, Missouri where our company was founded. I began my LSP journey as a classroom teacher and soon promoted up through the ranks into senior management at our Springfield III location. In 2016 when the opportunity arose to launch the San Antonio market, I jumped on the opportunity and relocated. Since 2016, my little family has made Texas our home and love every minute of it! My role within the company is providing operational guidance to the San Antonio/Austin metros and creating lasting relationships with our students, families and teachers.

On a personal note, my husband and I are always trying to keep up with our busy toddler, Thomas. We absolutely love every moment of parenthood! We enjoy spending time together outside, and love getting away to Port Aransas beach every chance we get.

I am so thrilled to welcome you and your family to LSP and together we will celebrate each child’s journey!

Ms. Judy

Program Director

Hello! My name is Judy and I am honored to be a part of the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse Family in the beautiful Lakeway community!

My early childhood experience began in March 2001 as a part-time infant teacher, then as a full-time preschool teacher. Within a year, I was promoted into the leadership team, which included Assistant Director, Curriculum Director, then Executive Director. I have truly loved each of my positions since it has allowed me to learn so much. I love what I do because I have the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives and build connections with our staff and families. Working in childcare means that the children and staff are an extension of my family.

On a personal note, I am a happy mom of Jonathan and Danielle, who are both in college pursuing their dreams. I am also a fur mom to Hope and Texan.

Mrs. Lauren, Assistant Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of Lakeway, TX

Mrs. Lauren

Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Lauren. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Little Sunshine’s family. I knew from a young age that early education was a passion of mine and that I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to teach young children.

Upon returning to Austin, I started at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse as a lead teacher in the toddler classroom. Shortly after, I became the head teacher for the preschool age group and am now the Assistant Director and could not love what I do more. I am truly passionate about our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum as I believe it’s a successful early education philosophy that offers several benefits to our young learners.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing with a good book and spending days on the lake with my spouse and our two dogs! My favorite hobby is photography and I take every opportunity I can find to grow my skills.

What our LSP Families are Saying​

LSP has been a part of our family since both of our children were eight weeks old. Our children started out in the infant room and will go through Pre-K. They go to great measures to get quality caretakers and teaching staff that nurture and support the children (and parents) through the different stages of development. They create a fun, artistic, creative, loving and stimulating learning environment that the kids genuinely take an interest in and thrive. LSP goes above and beyond for a top notch and collaborative educational experience. We have relied on LSP greatly through these early childhood years and we are very fortunate to have LSP as part of the community. Other notable features:

-Flexible drop-off/pick-up hours (6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.)

-Only closed on major holidays

-On-site chef that prepares breakfast/lunch/snacks

-Full range of classrooms from infancy to Pre-k

-Red carpet drop-off service

-Daily LuvNotes that keep you informed of your child's activities

We cannot say enough about our above and beyond experience at LSP!

I can't say enough about how amazing this school is! Having moved here from out of state a couple of months ago, we were desperate to find a place that we loved as much as our school back home. Well, thanks to the amazing teachers and staff at Little Sunshine's Playhouse, our expectations have far been exceeded! Our daughter's face just lights up when I ask her about her day with her friends and teachers. And our son can't stop asking "Do we get to go to school today?", every weekend...While one might take offense to this, instead I know that this is a sign of an amazing, loving staff that takes care of my kids like they're their own - what more could you want? A HUGE thanks to the teachers for all you do. Thanks to you, I know my kids are safe, loved and learning!

Both of our daughters attend Little Sunshine and we have been extremely happy with the level of service and professionalism (especially during this uncertain time) we have experienced during our time there. The front office staff and all of the people that work behind the scenes are welcoming, friendly, gracious and kind. We ADORE our teachers - and we know that our girls are in great hands when we drop them off, which is the most important thing for me as a working parent.
