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. Kelley

Area Manager & Program Director

Hi, LSP Families! I began my career with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse at our Claremont location in April of 2010. After taking a brief break in August of 2019 I have rejoined the LSP family as the program director of our Chestnut location. In 2020, I accepted the Program Director position at LSP Southlake. My passion is enriching the lives around me and building lasting relationships. I look forward to meeting you and partnering together during these most crucial years of learning for your little one.

On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband Matt for almost 5 years. Together we have two children, Amara will be turning 16 this summer and our son Asher (our leap day baby) just turned 4. In our spare time, we love watching the St. Louis and Springfield Cardinals and going to as many games as we can. During NCAA basketball season you will find us cheering for our Kentucky Wildcats and Missouri State Bears. 

As a family we also enjoy camping. Every day is an adventure in our home.

Ms. Tia

Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Tia, and I am the Assistant Director here at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Southlake. Every day I wake up just so excited to be a part of the student’s lives. I get the chance to watch them grow each and every day while helping to shape their minds. This time for children is one of the most important.

I am so happy to have moved into this role and ready to start this amazing journey. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri.  I graduated from St. Louis Community College with my AAS in Early Care and Education. I am going on my 14th year of being in the childcare field. I am on my fifth year working here at Little Sunshine Playhouse and what an AMAZING JOURNEY it has been. I have previously taught at LSP of University City, Mo for three years then I was promoted to head teacher at LSP of O’Fallon, Mo. In early 2020 my family and I relocated to Frisco, Texas. What made this move so exciting is that I could stay on this journey with my LSP family and transfer to the Southlake location. I started off as the two-year-old teacher then moved into the Pre-K teacher role and ultimately was promoted to Head Teacher.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful love of my life, an awesome 7-year-old son Brayden and two dog babies Diesel and Kash! I love them with all my heart!

My son has been at this day care since he was 6 weeks old. He's about to turn 2! The leadership team at the front are amazing and really make me feel confident leaving my son in good hands several hours a day! His teachers are fantastic at teaching him new things and keeping him entertained all day! They're very good at keeping me updated with schedules and activities. Their chef cooks healthy and whole meals that we try to incorporate at home too! Overall we love this daycare and will be extremely saddened when we leave!

We have had a wonderful experience at LSP. We have one child in Pre-K and his teacher is so amazing! She puts so much thought and energy into her lesson plans each month and cares about the well being and happiness of each child. She's positive, happy, organized, thoughtful and loving! She truly has a passion for teaching, encourages the kids to be responsible for themselves and praises them for helping others. We feel so lucky that she's there! I'd also like to call out our youngest sons teacher. There couldn't be a more loving, dedicated and experienced woman caring for our son. She truly loves each and every child as if they were her own. All in all, LSP has been wonderful and we would recommend it to anyone.
