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

Mrs. Tuesdi

PROGRAM Director

Hello!  My name is Tuesdi and I am so excited to be part of the Leadership Team as program 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 Little Sunshine’s. 

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.

Madison, Assistant Program Director

Ms. Madison

Assistant Director

Hi there!  My name is Madison and I am excited to be part of the Leadership Team as Assistant Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool at Claremont.

I have worked in the early childhood field for more than 10 years and hold a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Development from Pittsburg State (Go Gorillas!). Working with, and teaching children, has always been a passion of mine. It is always a joy to watch a child learn something new for the first time, whether it be how to walk, talk, or read! I hope to bring many years of unique experience and knowledge from working with children and families to the LSP family!

On a more personal note, my fiancé and I have two very energetic and happy dogs, Bear and Nymeria. We enjoy getting outdoors to kayak, cycle, play with the dogs, or just going for a walk. We also love going to the beach to visit with family and soak up some sun!

I look forward to meeting with you and getting to know you and 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.
