Our Proprietary Reggio Emilia-Inspired Curriculum

Creatively Shine®

Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine®, is based on the latest research and trends to prepare your children for their educational careers equipping them with cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills.

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.”

What our LSP Families are Saying

My daughter is currently on the wait list for Little Sunshine's and we cannot wait for her to start! When we toured the school, it was warm and welcoming with music playing overhead and one of the cleanest centers I've ever seen. It definitely gave me a "preschool" vibe rather than a day care, and that is exactly what I was looking for. The enrollment process was also seamless. The leadership staff are both very communicative and transparent as well as thorough and knowledgeable. Lynda is always reaching out to let me know she hasn't forgotten about me! So far- we love being apart of the LSP family.

Little Sunshine's was recommended to me by co-workers and friends. After we took our initial tour and met the friendly and nurturing staff, we were excited and quickly enrolled our child. More than two years later, we are happy to have made that decision. We can definitely see the positive impact Little Sunshine's has had on our child. My child is happy to go to school to learn and play. My child is social and confident. My child has learned so much and surprises us every day with how much he knows. All of this is a testament to the great curriculum and exceptional staff at Little Sunshine's. The staff communicates daily in person and through LuvNotes which keeps the parents informed with each child's development and progress. Being able to interact with teachers on a daily basis and understand upcoming lessons, challenges or any other items is so helpful. All this provides a great peace of mind knowing that your child is safe and well cared for in the hands of the excellent staff at Little Sunshine's.

Our son has been attending Little Sunshine's since he was three months old (he's now nearly two). In the time we've been enrolling him here, he's blossomed into a wonderful little boy, which I attribute greatly to this school. Their focus on socialization, sharing, learning and having fun seems to complement the way kids grow up”and the teachers and staff have been nothing short of wonderful no matter which classroom we're visiting. The facilities are also very clean and it seems there is a great sense of community throughout. We hope to continue bringing our kids here and would recommend Little Sunshine's to anyone close enough to enjoy it!
