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. Karri, Program Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of The Woodlands, TX

Ms. Karri

Program Director

Hello! My name is Karri and I’m excited to be your Program Director for the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in The Woodlands. I’ve been in the education industry for more than 27 years and in administration for more than 22 years.  I began my career as a pre-kindergarten teacher, which is when I realized I had a passion for teaching young children and wanted to make it my career. I moved out of the classroom and into administration where I grew professionally and ran several successful preschool programs while raising my son.

I was very excited to find Little Sunshine’s Playhouse as I feel that their Reggio Emilia-inspired approach to learning and quality programs brings an unrivaled distinction in preschool and early childhood education to our area.  I love to be hands-on, and you will often see me visiting in the classrooms. My door is always open to my staff and LSP families. I believe the key to a great school is communication, I would love to tell you all about Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and get to know you and your family.

Ms. TK, Assistant Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool of The Woodlands

Ms. TK

Assistant Director

Hello, my name is TK, and I am the assistant director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® of The Woodlands.

I was blessed to be at home with my children for 20 years, volunteering in my “free time” with our church and the schools. After moving to Texas in 2012, I entered the early childhood field. I fell in love with my job and discovered that I have a passion for education. I feel strongly that early childhood education is key for long-term success in life. I was overjoyed to be hired as a head teacher for the opening team of LSP The Woodlands and served in that role from October of 2016 until I was promoted to the assistant director position in December of 2020.

Reggio Emilia curriculum is my jam! I could talk about the ins and outs of it for hours. I love watching children learn, and when they can learn through creative measures in a safe and loving environment, it is the best feeling! I also feel that it is important to build positive relationships with our families and strive to do so each day from the first phone inquiry to Pre-K graduation.

I have been married to my best friend, Jon, for 28 years, and together we have raised four beautiful children. We live in Willis, TX, with the two of our kiddos and our three fur babies.

The best part about my job is our relationship with our families and seeing the smiling faces of our students when they come to school. I can hardly wait to welcome you to our Little Sunshine’s family!

Perfect place for your child to grow! You're greeted daily with a sincere smile and enjoyable conversation with the leadership staff. Consistently being provided updates on upcoming events and activities for the kids. Another plus is it's always clean! Best part though comes down to the environment that has been created in the classroom. I wanted and expected my twin girls to be safe and treated well. Not only were they safe, but treated like family from the teachers. There was nothing better than my children getting excited on Sunday night because they got to see their teachers the next morning. Thanks for taking the stress of worrying about my children away while I was at work.

Let me start off by saying.. I LOVE THIS PLACE.. My daughter started off in the newborn room and is currently transitioning to the toddler room. The teachers in the infant room are complete rock stars! They are very sweet and caring when it comes to meeting Mackenzie's needs! The Director and Head Teacher are also amazing women and are always willing to listen to any concern you may have. This can be relieving for a first time parent such as myself. Right now in Ashdown Forest I have been getting acquainted to having new teahers and it has been a pretty smooth transition for the most part. They are very sweet women and take great pride in caring for the little ones. The environment here is very welcoming, warm, fun and clean all at the same time! I would suggest coming to check this place out for yourself.

We love LSP! Our daughter started in the infant room at 3 months old. It's obviously one of the hardest things in the world to leave your little one to go work, but we were so thankful for the understanding, caring, and loving team at LSP. From the minute you walk in the door you know your child will be loved in and cared for. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher in the infant room. She is kind and sweet and forms a bond with each child. She even came to our daughters baptism at our church! As your child moves from class to class you wonder if you'll find the same great fit, at LSP you definitely will. Our next teacher was such an amazing caregiver for our sweetie. She's fun, she plans wonderful activities for the babies to learn and to thrive! I can't say enough wonderful things about her. The kids have a blast in their classroom. My daughter still runs around clapping her legs when she sings A, B, C's. And The Preschool teacher takes on a motherly role and treats all of the children as if they are her own. She plans wonderful learning activities, keeps kids active and loves on them all day. We love her immensely! LSP became a family to us when we didn't have family nearby. They opened their doors early to us when we had a medical emergency and needed help with our daughter. This is an amazing team of people that are loving, kind, supportive, and reliable. We miss you all very very much!!!
