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.

Our Leadership Team
Hello, my name is Tonya and I am the program director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® of Ozark. I am so proud to be a part of this outstanding team.
I have been with the company since 2008 and I have learned so much, including that quality childcare is something that is sought after every day. It is my passion to be a part of a company where a high-quality team works together to provide exceptional childcare, and I have found that working for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse.
I am currently working on obtaining my degree in early childhood education and am so happy to be putting it to use with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse.
On a more personal note, my husband and I were married in April of 2014 and have a beautiful daughter who attended Little Sunshine’s when she was younger. I’m so excited to continue my journey with this incredible company and look forward to introducing you to our Little Sunshine’s Playhouse family.
Hello, my name is Traci, and I am honored to be your Assistant Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Ozark.
I have lived in the Ozarks since I was a child and absolutely love it here. I attended Ozark Public Schools and started working in early childhood right after I graduated high school. I love seeing our students’ faces as they learn new things and make new friends. Witnessing these special moments is what I love most about what I do.
I started my incredible journey with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in 2013. I began as an assistant teacher and then was given the opportunity to become the lead teacher in the Pre-k room, then shortly after that I became the head teacher. I am so grateful to work for such a caring and compassionate company.
On a personal note, I have an incredible son and when and not at work that is who I spend most of my time with. We enjoy going outdoors and going to the lake in the summer. Anytime we are together we have a ton of fun!
I cannot wait to grow with you and your families.
