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. Jenn, Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool Arizona Area Manager

Mrs. Jenn

Program Director & Area Manager

Hello families! My name is Jenn and I am the Area Manager for all the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool® locations in Arizona.

I have worked in Early Childhood Education since 2004, and have been absolutely honored to serve all of the children and families of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse since July of 2011. I have received my Child Development Associates and have taken several classes in Early Childhood Education. 

I found my love for Early Childhood Education at a young age and have developed a deep passion for helping children reach their maximum potential before heading off to kindergarten.  My favorite thing about working with children is the opportunity it provides to get to know our students as the individual they are and to build bonds with each and every one of them that lasts a lifetime.

The importance of Early Childhood Education and socialization to the development of a young mind is what drives my work every day.  I am excited to have the opportunity to meet your family and to look into having you join our Little Sunshine’s family.

Ms. Latryce

Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Latryce and I am the assistant director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® Scottsdale. My passion for education started at a young age. 

I started my career as an early childhood educator back in 2014 and once I saw what a huge impact I had on children’s education, I never looked back. I found my way to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in February of 2018, and started my journey as an assistant teacher in our transition classroom. Shortly after I was offered the opportunity to be the lead teacher in the pre-k classroom.  In 2019 I proudly accepted the role of assistant director.

I strongly believe children learn and grow best when they are in a loving and caring environment, surrounded by teachers and peers who love them and inspire them to be their very best. My goal is to give your little one the tools they need to succeed in and out of the classroom for years to come.

The best part about my job is seeing children excited about coming to school and who are eager to learn something new! I look forward to meeting you and your family.

We could not be happier with our decision to enroll our three year old into LSP's preschool program. The staff are all very friendly and keep the rooms very clean. The meals and snacks are great, even for picky eaters. LSP was our son's first full day program he's has ever attended and to see him transform into a social little bug withœlots of friends was amazing. We absolutely adore the Assistant Director. When morning drop off has our guy a little emotional, she is so sweet with him and makes his feelings all better. She really connected with him from the start and knew how to get on his level to make him feel special. We are so thankful for LSP and highly recommend!

Our son has attended LSP for a little over two years now. We have enjoyed watching him grow alongside his classmates in a caring environment and creating special bonds with teachers. The distinct services advertised by LSP such as LuvNotes, an on-site chef, security, class parties which parents are invited to, book fairs and holiday gatherings all of which help you to become more involved in your child's life at school. Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not mention the loose parts curriculum. Since doing so we have seen our son's imagination soar during playtime to the point he rarely asks for screen time anymore. Now that the directors have educated parents on the loose parts addition we personally practice more of it at home and could not be more pleased.
