It's hard to believe that it all started in 1998, when Rochette Dahler opened her home to local families in search of child care. Her reputation for utilizing the Reggio Emilia approach and hosting a superior preschool program for her founding students is what began Little Sunshine’s legacy. Through passion, determination and a vision, the first official Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool® was born in 2002.

It has been an honor to provide countless children with a safe environment to learn, play and grow for the past 19 years. We're excited for many more years to come!
