Our Southlake, TX Leadership Team

Ms. Tia, Assistant Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse of Southlake

Ms. Tia

Program Director

Hello, my name is Tia, and I am the Program 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!

Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of working with children of all ages and have also spent three years in a management role. What continues to inspire me is witnessing the remarkable growth and development of each child I’ve had the privilege to guide. 

On a personal level, my heart is filled with joy by my loving family, including my husband Levi and our two wonderful children, Annalyse and Luke. I enjoy the timeless pursuit of antique shopping and cherish moments spent with my family and our beloved dogs.

What Our Southlake Families Are Saying

5 Stars

We are new to the area and so glad we discovered LSP! We were looking for something that fit our family’s style – fun, educational, positive environment, great communication, healthy food, clean and location! I immediately got a great vibe from the leadership team – they are so kind, welcoming, and great to work with! We really like the communication – we get an email each morning with the schedule so it’s fun to tell our daughter about what to expect each day which makes her excited!

Absolutely love LSP!! I transferred my son from another daycare after just a few weeks and it was the best move we ever made. The staff are incredible, I’ve loved every teacher, currently Ms. Lisa and Ms. Michelle are wonderful and I can’t say enough about the Front Office staff, Ms. Tia, Ms. Kathy and Ms. Victoria, they are all truly delightful and I know we are in great hands!

Wow oh Wow do I LOVE this place! My girls absolutely love going to school and are excited every day to get out of the car and see their friends and teachers. As a mom, I feel truly blessed to have a daycare/ school where I know my girls are both well taken care of and loved! While I am so glad that they are learning so much at school but it is more important to me that they are learning to become good people. LSP is truly one of a kind and I am so grateful for every person that works there- they truly know and love my kids!
