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.”

Mrs. Sarah

Program Director

Hello! My name is Sarah, and I am thrilled to be the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool of Littleton. 

I have been immersed in the early childhood field since 2010. I love being a part of every child’s journey. It is my true passion to guide children and to watch them explore their environment and help them discover some fun things about themselves. I am excited to provide a positive learning environment for every child who attends Little Sunshine’s Playhouse of Littleton.

I have lived in Arvada, Colorado for most of my life and love growing my family here. I have a wonderful husband, Richard and three children, Ashton, Nora and Griffin. We are a hockey-loving family to the core, and we spend most of our weekends at the ice rink or watching hockey games. We also love exploring everything Colorado has to offer by snowboarding or hiking.

What Our Littleton Families Are Saying


5 Stars

This is our second go-around with LSP. We had our two older children there when LSP first opened until they went to elementary school. When it was time for our surprise baby to go to daycare we couldn’t think to send him anywhere but LSP! What was amazing, was after over two years of being gone, I returned to see some of the same faces that cared for my older children – which is almost unheard of in the childcare industry, especially with what COVID has done. The staff has always been wonderful to my children, giving them love and support throughout all the developmental changes that happen. My older children were well prepared for kindergarten both socially and academically. We love how the staff takes time to answer our questions, works WITH us to solve any problems, and genuinely cares for children. We could not ask for a better place for our little one to spend his days.


5 Stars

This family of hard-working childcare professionals has taken amazing care of our son for 2 crazy years considering all the COVID complications. They have exceeded my expectations by over-communicating at every transition and focusing on keeping kids, teachers, and families healthy. If you are looking for childcare in the area, then look no further, LSP is the best out there!


5 Stars

Our 2.5-year-old daughter has been going to LSP since she was 7 months old. Honestly, my husband and I couldn’t recommend the curriculum and the staff any higher. Our daughter has excelled tremendously in motor skills, speech, and curiosity about the world. She absolutely loves her teachers and friends and talks about them every day! We work full-time jobs and it’s such a relief to know she’s in the best hands. We have a second little one on the way and can’t wait for him to join the LSP family 💗
