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. We believe that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives.

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.”

Our Lakeway, TX Leadership Team

Mrs. Kelly, Program Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse of Austin, TX at Four Points

Mrs. Kelly

Area Manager

Hello! My name is Kelly, and I am delighted to serve as Area Manager for the Austin, TX market. I am also the Program Director for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool Austin, TX of Four Points. I look forward to getting to know your family and partnering with you to make the most of these crucial years of your child’s early education. 

I have served as an early childhood education director since 2015 and will always be grateful for the countless lessons I have learned from my relationships with students, families and teachers. I have lived in Austin since 2001 when I moved to attend the University of Texas.

My husband and I are blessed with two amazing boys who love the outdoors, especially fishing, hiking and swimming.  My youngest attends Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, and I couldn’t be happier to watch him learn and grow in an environment that fosters curiosity and compassion.

Ms. Suzanne

Program Director

Hi families! My name is Suzanne, and I am the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Lakeway.

My heart has always been in early childhood education. I come from a long line of child educators; my mother is a teacher (at 76 years old), my partner is a teacher, and my sister is a teacher.  I have been both a lead teacher and an assistant teacher.  Most recently I was the Head of School at a school located in Cedar Park; a campus of 150+ children from 6 weeks old through sixth grade. 

I feel deeply that we all want to feel connected. It is especially so for children. As educators, we are intentional when we answer this call.  We model real life with respect for the child; how to be mad, how to be sad, how to be disappointed – how to jump for joy, how to be silly.

On a personal note, I have two children, two grandchildren, four cats and two dogs. I am an intaglio artist and spend most of my free time in an art studio or kayaking.

Ms. Lee Ann

Assistant Director

Hello! My name is Lee Ann, and I am the proud Assistant Director of Little Sunshine Playhouse and Preschool in Lakeway.  

The last nine years I worked as the director for Amarillo Montessori Academy in Amarillo, Texas. I love working with children and enjoy watching them learn and grow. I learned more from the students than I ever thought possible.  

On a personal note, I have three grown children and six grandchildren, with one on the way.  

I am new to the Austin area and am loving it so far. I love the outdoors and look forward to exploring the hiking paths around this amazing community with my favorite companion, Atlas, my boxer.
