Our Proprietary Reggio Emilia-Inspired Curriculum
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
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.
Assistant Program 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!
