Ask any parent what sets Little Sunshine’s Playhouse apart… and you’ll get a variety of answers! Our distinctive services have been developed to meet specific connection, communication, security, nutrition, and convenience desires of our families while also positioning Little Sunshine’s as an Early Care innovator!
Our humble beginnings started with a desire to give our children the skills to give them an advantage for their future. We believed that if our children can read, write and speak in the three most spoken languages in the world they will have a competency that no other child possess.
Our school allows students to make connections across the curriculum in order to unify and deepen their learning experience and understanding. Children will see the relevance of what they are learning as it applies to their world, and be challenged to become empathetic, kind, compassionate and globally-aware citizens.
Our kindergarten readiness program offers an inclusive, structured, scientific approach to teaching that is based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA). We provide our learners with a learner-driven, positive environment and we strive to foster a love of learning in each and every student.
The Goddard School uses the most current, academically endorsed methods to ensure that children have fun while learning the skills they need for long-term success in school and in life. Our talented teachers also collaborate with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.

A group of moms got together to form Scottsdale Community Learning Center. Some of us are working parents, some of us just don’t want to be online teachers ever again! We created a safe space for kids to come and complete their online learning with the support of certified teachers and tutors. We provide help with homework, along with various other activities as time permits. We are very flexible with our scheduling and allow parents to choose how many hours they would like to send their kids each day and each week. We charge about $10/hr., but have some packages for schools that we have received schedules for so far, that give a bonus of 30 minutes of homework help each day.
Cactus Day Camp is where traditional day camping comes to the desert. We provide a full-day program five days a week for 2, 4, 6, or 8 weeks for ages 3-13.

We offer optional transportation, optional lunch programs, tween field trips, we have two pools on campus, and a counselor-in-training program for ages 14-16.
Our well-rounded preschool program is ideal for children aged 2-5. It is the desire for our staff here at WhizKidz to foster imagination and creativity in your child, while teaching them what they will need to know as they move forward in their school years. We want every child to feel like they are getting the attention that they need, and that they are benefitting from what our staff is teaching to them.
For over 16 years I have been connecting families with live-in childcare that has a cultural exchange and foreign language twist that benefits the whole family! Choosing the right childcare is not an easy decision. Because as parents, we don’t ever want to compromise on quality, flexibility and trust when finding care for the most important people in the world. And now, it’s even more challenging to find safe and reliable care on a schedule that works for your family. Hosting a Cultural Care au pair gives thousands of families across the country those very important benefits. Learn more about who our au pairs are, what they do, and why more families than ever are joining our program.
An au pair is a young adult from overseas who lives with your family on a legal visa for up to two years and provides childcare in exchange for a weekly stipend, room and board, and an opportunity to become part of an American family. Over time, an au pair becomes a trusted support for the parents at home, and a beloved and consistent caregiver for your children.
Facts about au pairs:
- Au pairs come from 20+ countries around the world
- All au pairs are between the ages of 18-26 when they arrive in the U.S.
- Au pairs stay for a minimum of 12 months and have the option to extend for 6, 9, or 12 months with the same family or a new one
- Most au pairs are women (but we have amazing male au pairs as well!)
- Au pairs can provide up to 45 hours of childcare per week (up to 10 hours per day)
Nanno (www.nanno.com) is the first true on-demand babysitting app, giving parents a way to book fully vetted sitters and nannies using a simple on-demand platform. Nanno was founded by two career-driven moms who saw how much childcare uncertainty limited them and their peers in their professional pursuits. Seeing no satisfactory options for flexible, on-demand childcare, they built one. As professional problem-solvers, they built the solution they knew they needed. As moms, they took extra care to ensure that the platform’s vetting process is best-in-class, for both caregivers and parents.
Children in our classrooms are active participants in the learning process through an approach known as Emergent Curriculum. This is a way of planning based on children’s natural curiosity and interests.
The PVCS curriculum is designed to build academic skills in such a way that the process enhances personal growth and development. The curriculum is personalized. It evolves from the interests, needs and maturity of individual children.
