Our team at Alamo City Moms Blog is happy to partner with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool to bring you news of their grand opening on the north side of San Antonio and information on their enrollment process and unique childcare services. **This article has been updated since its original publication date of June 30.**
As a mom who returned to work after the births of all my children, I know firsthand how stressful it is to find childcare. I recall feeling as if nobody was good enough to care for my baby. However, once I found the right fit for our family and saw that my child was safe and thriving, it made the transition so much easier. Our city is blessed to have many great childcare options, and a new one that you need to know about is Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool.
This brand-new early education facility is located just off the I-10 corridor north of 1604. It resides behind the popular restaurants and shops exploding in that area and near the entrance to the beautiful Stonewall Ranch community. I find it to be tucked away far enough from the noise and traffic of the highway yet convenient for commuting to work each day. The school is currently enrolling families with children age six months to six years old.
Little Sunshine’s Playhouse maintains an identity and brand image of unrivaled distinction in preschool and early childhood education. The unique architecture of their facility serves as a castle for a “Once Upon A Time” experience that enables each child to develop his/her imagination. Imbued throughout with old-world appeal, their facilities are professionally designed to maximize each child’s personal experience. In conjunction with enhanced interiors, Little Sunshine’s Playhouse features a theater stage, a landscaped nature center conducive to healthy, outdoor play, and a variety of customized, age-appropriate playground equipment.
Little Sunshine’s Playhouse utilizes a master-planned and Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine™, which is based off the newest research and trends to prepare young children to enter their educational career equipped with cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and language skills.
Industry-leading technology is weaved into their programs to provide exclusive services, such as secured Kiddie Cams™ that allow parents to watch their child via a smart phone or computer; LuvNotes™, an electronic communication system that allows teachers to send parents personalized notes, pictures, and videos of their children during the day; and Red Carpet Service™ for a quick and convenient drop-off service and a double-secured keypad entry into the school.
These unique characteristics and distinctive services differentiate Little Sunshine’s Playhouse as the premier preschool and child care concept. But most importantly, these all of these services give parents peace of mind that their children are safe and well cared for.
Meal Service is also taken very seriously by the school’s menu planners and on-site chef. They understand the positive long-term impact of providing children with healthy, nutrient-rich meals; therefore, menus include only the freshest ingredients and exceed all nutritional guidelines.
Additional features to consider that will vary slightly from program to include:
- Nature Center Facilities: Outdoor nature-based learning environment equipped with bird feeders, walking paths, vegetable gardens, and labeled trees, bushes, and flowers
- Indoor Sunshine Playhouse: Themed playhouse in the common hallway
- Theater Stage: Used for school productions
- Extra Activities: Dance, soccer, yoga, music, science labs, computer labs, sign language, and foreign language
Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool is welcoming new families every day and currently anticipating a waiting list upon opening day.
