Our Leadership Team
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.
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.
