Ms. Emma

Program Director

Hello! My name is Emma and I am the Program Director of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Colorado Springs at Cheyenne Mountain. I started at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in 2015 in the infant classrooms and quickly fell in love with the philosophy and passion that this company has for nurturing young children. Since then I worked my way up to program director through hard work and dedication to our children here in Colorado Springs.

The best part of working for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse is providing a safe and nurturing environment for children, where they feel comfortable exploring and learning concepts. I also love to make everlasting bonds with all the families and to be able to support them in whatever they need.

On a personal note, I am originally from England and moved to the US in 2009 with my husband Eddie and have been working with young children for over 15 years.

I look forward to getting to know your family better and watching your little one grow and learn here at LSP.

What Our Colorado Springs Families Are Saying


5 Stars

We had a great experience with Little Sunshine’s Playhouse! I would say I’m an anxious first-time parent and Little Sunshine’s Playhouse surpassed my expectations for a daycare. I knew he was happy, learning, and well taken care of. Your knowledgeable staff gave me guidance with each transition in my sons life – weaning from sleep sack, transitioning to food, and stopping the bottle. They helped me get him on a schedule that keeps me sane on the weekends! I am so grateful for the care he has received in these crucial early stages of life. 


5 Stars

I love this daycare, both on a parent level as well as a teacher level. My daughter is so happy to be there and she learns a lot! Her teachers are very vocal with me and they communicate well. They are also very loving toward her. These are all things I noticed before I even started working there. Now that I do, I see firsthand how much everyone cares about their kids and their learning. I love being a part of this company.


5 Stars

Little Sunshines is an overall wonderful place! The amount of care and love given to each individual student is unmatched! It is really special to have a place that I know I can trust with my child while I am at work. It is also really nice to have a chef that takes care of all meals and snacks each day! That saves me a ton of time at home and I know she is getting nutritious meals. Every teacher cares so much for their kids that it is like a second family!
