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.”
Our Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Lindsey, I am the proud Program director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool® of Springfield at Claremont.
I have worked in childcare for more than 15 years and consider it one of my greatest passions. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to teach infant classrooms all the way through pre-k and earned the titles “Preschool Classroom of the Year and Outstanding Nature Classroom for Infants.” I have my national certification in early childhood and I am currently finishing up my four-year degree in early childhood.
On a personal note, my husband and I live on a farm and love watching hockey and baseball together! Go Blues and Cardinals!! I also enjoy going on long runs and spending time with my family.
I love sharing all my experiences, knowledge, and passion with my staff and our incredible LSP families.
Hello! My name is Tuesdi and I am so excited to be part of the Leadership Team as Assistant Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool at Claremont!
I have worked in childcare since 1997 and have held many positions, but for the last 15 years I have been either an Assistant Director or Director. Teaching children and watching them grow academically and socially has always been a passion of mine and I absolutely love watching them achieve milestones. I hope to bring many years of knowledge, leadership, and creativity to LSP.
On a more personal note, my husband and I are happily married with five children. We enjoy traveling, going to the lake, baseball games, and socializing with our close friends and family. I personally love the beach and could sit and listen to the waves all day long.
I am looking forward to meeting every one of you and getting to know your family!
