Ms. Allison, Program Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse

Ms. Allison

Program Director

Hello! My name is Allison, and I am excited to be your Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Elkhorn North.  

I earned my Child Development Associate Credential in 2018. I love learning about Early Childhood Development and am currently working toward my Associates in Early Childhood Education. I also plan to get my Bachelor’s in Child Development. I have worked in child care for over 15 years, starting as an assistant teacher and working my way up to director.  

There is nothing I love more than seeing the look on a child’s face after they have learned something new about their world. Children are our future, and it is our job as early childhood educators to help foster strong foundations for each child’s future success. 

I grew up in a military family, which took us all over the world. However, Nebraska will always be home to me. I love experiencing all the seasons, sometimes in a single week! I have four beautiful children, all boys. As a family we love to camp and travel to new places. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking, and baking. I also love anything outdoors and binge-watching reality TV. I personally believe there is nothing life can throw at me that coffee and chocolate can’t fix!

Ms. Amanda

Assistant Director

Hello! My name is Amanda, and I’m happy to serve the families of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Elkhorn North, NE as the Assistant Director. 

I am currently obtaining my Child Development Associate credential. I have worked with children of all ages for 14 years. I started my educational career  as a teacher’s assistant in the infant room, then moved to lead teacher in the pre-k classroom, and from there was promoted to Assistant Director, and I’ve loved every step of the way! Working in child care is one of the most rewarding careers. Seeing the joy on each child’s face when they have learned something new is priceless! 

On a personal note, I was born in California and moved to Nebraska at eight. My husband and I have three kids, one boy, and two girls and they keep us on the go! In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, read books, and binge-watch some of my favorite TV shows.

We are so grateful for Little Sunshine! My 2.5 year old has thrived and loves to go to school everyday (even asks to go on the weekend)! She talks about her teachers every day. Soon our infant will be starting. We couldn’t feel better with our decision to send our kids to LSP. We recently moved from Pasadena, CA and feel Little Sunshine’s is an elite preschool nationwide.  ❤️❤️❤️❤️

We have loved sending our kids here from the very first day! My one year old loves going here and they take amazing care of him. You can tell the teachers in his room really care about him. They give us frequent updates and have excellent communication. I have another son in the pre k room and he loves it here. They keep them engaged while helping him prepare for Kindergartner as well. His teachers are so good with the kids and care about my son and how he’s progressing. The food is fresh and the front staff are so helpful. There are quite a few kids at this daycare and they all know my kids by name! Don’t hesitate and get on the waitlist for the new school 😊
