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.”

Ms. Karri, Area Manager and Program Director

Ms. Karri

Area Manager & Program Director

Hello! My name is Karri and I’m excited to be your Area Manager for the Dallas/Houston market. In addition to Area Manager, I also serve as the Program Director for the Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of The Woodlands. I’ve been in the education industry for more than 31 years and in administration for more than 26 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 to 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 30 years, and together we have raised four beautiful children. We live in Willis, TX, with two of our kiddos and our 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!

I really can’t say enough good things about Little Sunshine’s. We have been going there since they opened in 2016. We have sent two of our kids there, the youngest is still there. The entire staff, including teachers ancillary and directors are amazing. They treat your kids like their own. If you stand in the front in the morning the staff knows every single name of the kid that walks in, which just warms my heart. The food is healthy and delicious. One of the best parts about Little Sunshine’s is the cleanliness and it always smells so fresh and clean. If you were thinking about sending your kids there take a tour and check it out.

My almost 3-year-old son started at Little Sunshine’s about two months ago. I was very nervous about enrolling him because he hadn’t been in full-time care before. His teachers at LSP have been amazing and put my mind at ease. It’s so cool to have a teacher who’s just as excited about his milestones as I am. Even on difficult mornings, I don’t have any hesitation leaving my son in her arms. We’re thrilled with the teachers in the twos class at LSP.
