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.

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.”

Our Arvada Leadership Team

Ms. Amy, Program Director of Little Sunshine's Playhouse and Preschool

Ms. Amy

Program Director

Hello! My name is Amy, and I am thrilled to be the Program Director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Arvada. In 2016, I started at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool in Littleton, CO and immediately fell in love with the company. It has been such a joy to grow and learn alongside all the other educators within our school community over the years. What I appreciate most about LSP is the play-based/child-led curriculum, supportive leaders, and the opportunity to work alongside such dedicated and like-minded educators. 

In 2016, I received my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education with my teacher’s licensure from the University of Northern Colorado. Since then, I pursued my master’s degree in curriculum development. Furthering my education and growing my experience in the field has been pivotal to the development of both my leadership and teaching philosophies. With that, strong relationships are the foundation of success in all areas of life, whether it be education, professional, or personal. And because of this, I believe social-emotional learning should be the focus in our little one’s early years.  

Speaking of little ones, I have a son named Torey who is now a big kindergartener! Together we enjoy spending time outdoors, making crafts, and going on our evening walks! Last year, I also took a year off to start a business of my own! I learned so much about business and team management during that time and cannot wait to apply my knowledge to this role as program director.

Ms. Sara

Assistant Director

Hello! My name is Sara, and I am proud to be the Assistant Director of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Arvada.  

I have been working with young children since I graduated high school in 2016. I used to be a water safety and swim instructor for children and decided to get into early childhood education soon after. I worked in another large center here in Arvada for five years. In my time there, I worked with preschool students, but quickly realized my passion for toddler ages. I was a toddler teacher for two years before ending up pursuing my Director’s Certification and moving to management within that company. Work is my passion and the littles have been my motivation from the beginning.  

On a personal note, I am a Colorado native and in my free time enjoy spending time with family and my two dogs, Nelli and Howard. I am an avid reader and will always enjoy a good book recommendation. My favorite children’s books are Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Go Dog, Go!

This place has turned out to be a godsend for us and several other families who were subject to Primrose and Goddard schools.
The teachers at Little Sunshine’s are professionals who engage with, teach and play with the children as opposed to just babysitting.
The facility, toys, chef and other amenities are also top shelf. Management is happy, helpful and professional.
I can’t say enough good things, thank you for coming to Arvada!!
