Our Schaumburg Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Colleen and I am proud to be your Program Director of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Schaumburg. Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is truly what my passion is. It has been a pleasure growing with the company and getting to know not only the children but the families as well. LSP has truly become my second family and I can’t wait to grow my family within the Schaumburg community.
I am married to my best friend, Dan! We also have two daughters. They keep us amused and light up our days!. On the weekends, I spend a lot of time with my family and am always working on new projects in our home. There is never a dull moment in our household.
I love watching the children use their creative minds and learn through play with our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum. From infants when they are exploring with sensory bottles until pre-kindergarten when they are expressing their emotions with documentation and making faces out of rocks.
Being in child care is the most rewarding job possible. When I walk into a classroom and immediately have children hugging my legs and putting the biggest smile on my face, it is the best feeling. I want these children to feel at home when they are at school and be excited to come and learn.
I always make sure I build a relationship with each child and family to understand them better to show my utmost respect for their lives at school and outside of school. My goal each day is to ensure that every family has a genuine and positive experience at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and they are getting the love they deserve.
Hi, LSP Families! My name is Lizzi, and I am ecstatic to be the Assistant Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool of Schaumburg!
I have 12 years of experience in early childhood education. I first started my journey with LSP in 2017 at the Willowbrook, IL location. I started as an early preschool teacher and then I was promoted to the head teacher position.
Children have such an amazing imagination when it comes to conversation and learning. Educating and being surrounded by children is one of the most rewarding careers and it is my true passion. There is nothing better than being greeted by children every day with open arms and smiles each time I walk into a classroom!
My husband, Tim, and I have a beautiful daughter. We are learning to navigate this new role as toddler parents and are super excited to watch her grow. We also have two amazing Bengal cats that fill our home with craziness and fun. My husband and I are avid scuba divers who love adventure, mountains, traveling, and taking on new experiences together. I also have a passion for fitness, staying healthy, and am a big believer in personal development.
As your assistant director, I am thrilled to help create a positive learning experience and bond with you and your child daily. I want to ensure you feel confident, supported, and welcomed into our LSP Schaumburg family!

What Schaumburg Families Are Saying
Talk about a blessing that just fell into my lap. If there was ever a marketing ad that I was thankful about, it would be this one. From administration to the teachers – 100% amazing!!!!! I remember my daughter has a week where she was not acting like her usual self and I could not believe how quickly the teachers were handling that situation. Ms. Colleen had called me to give me an update and let me know that she would keep an eye on her. This school is a true leader when it comes to education and its approach. My daughter is in love with every teacher in this school. Day in and out she talks about them at home and never forgets to tell me how happy she is to go to school. Every morning my husband does “what are you thankful for?” And she always mentions that she is thankful for her teachers and friends. It’s a parent’s dream to hear that. This school is the definition of “it takes a village.”
I cannot rave enough about this school. After visiting 14 daycare institutions. We had the privilege of connecting with the director. I have loved this school ever since! The leadership team and teachers made us feel so so so welcome. It’s always a joy to walk in and see them. My daughters’ teachers are the absolute sweetest, I love this school so much and I recommend them to every single person I meet who might be daycare shopping. The quality is there, the cleanliness is there! It always smells so fresh every time you walk in! Even in the classrooms. Thank you ladies so much for being so awesome!
We love Little Sunshine’s!! Our daughter has been going there since they opened and has loved every minute. She’s learned so much and comes home with a smile on her face each day. We’ve always had excellent communication with Colleen and Lizzi as well as our daughter’s teachers. We can’t recommend this preschool enough! They are amazing!
