About Radiant Productions

Creating Wonderful Connections

Welcome to Radiant Productions!

Our aim is to create engaging content and experiences for families, schools, and communities focused on the joy of the early childhood years.


Whether you share one of our punny jokes, try a Brain Sprinkle activity, or sign up for DAZE, we hope you will enjoy making meaningful connections through these experiences. We love exploring the world with that childlike sense of wonder, and hope that you will too!


Making connections is what Radiant is all about.

We play hard here at Radiant, and we look hard for ways to care for one another. As you'll see in our videos, we don't always get it right - and that's okay. Like all life skills, learning how to connect with others takes practice!


We would love to connect with you. Be sure to follow the jackalope on social media and use the Contact Us page to schedule your event or share a PJ. Enjoy!

Sometimes all we need is a little joy.


Rachel Hutchison


Hey everybody, I'm Rachel Hutchison, a teaching artist with over 20 years of experience as a performer, puppeteer, and vocalist. I love to make meaningful connections with adults and children, both in-person and online!


I grew up in the small frontier town of Havre, Montana, and currently live in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.  I hold a Masters degree from Harvard in creative writing, and I have written hundreds of kits for puppeteering and acting teams across the country; wrote murder mysteries for Montana Actors Theatre; and developed a play-based curriculum for New Hope Diamond Head Church in Honolulu, Hawaii.

In 2019, I launched Radiant Productions to shine a light on the wonderful early childhood years, and to lift up those who have made early childhood care and education their profession. I see you, preschool teachers and childcare providers. You are my heroes.

In addition to connecting families, schools, and communities, I love reading and writing fantasy novels, going to climbing gyms with my family, and hiking with my dog, Amber.

I would love to connect with you, too. Head over to the Contact Us page and drop me a note!
