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.”

Our Leadership Team

Mrs. Lindsey, Program Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of Ozark, MO

Mrs. Lindsey

Program Director

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.

Mrs. Tuesdi, Assistant Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of Claremont

Mrs. Tuesdi

Assistant Director

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!

What our LSP Families are Saying​

LSP strives to do their best with your kids. My oldest started there when she was an infant. We went through multiple babysitters and LSP is still the best. They have daily reports to give you peace of mind and all the teachers and staff are so approachable and friendly. They provide formula and food. They have fun events for your kids as well. I haven't had an issue there and feel my daughter is learning a lot from being there. Highly recommended.

We love LSP Claremont! Our girls have had wonderful teachers who very clearly love their work and love the kiddos. The teacher in the infant room is so wonderful with our littlest, and our oldest's teacher have been amazing. I feel good knowing the teachers plan enriching (and fun!) activities, and they take the kiddos outside as often as possible too. Can’t recommend this daycare highly enough.

I was nervous to take my newborn son to daycare because for the first three months of his life he only wanted his mommy. The infant teacher has been absolutely amazing from day one. Her enthusiasm and passion for what she does makes me feel so much better about leaving him during the day. I cannot express how thankful I am that she cares for him like he is one of her own. My oldest son has been going to LSP for over two years now and I am so thankful for the relationships that he has formed in his time there.The teachers do such a great job at making sure he is taken care and when I read about his day on his LuvNotes report and they tell me how he gives his teachers hugs and tells them he loves them just confirms that we have made the right choice.
