Our Leadership Team
Hello! My name is Lynda and I am so very excited and grateful to be a part of this amazing school and to get to know all of you. I have been a part of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool® of Littleton since before we opened our doors in 2016. I was hired as the assistant director and was promoted to program director in November of 2017. I have loved being a part of this school and look forward to many more years here!
Before pursuing my career in early childhood education, I attended college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I received my bachelor’s degree in english literature and a minor in French. I recently just obtained my master’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Colorado at Denver. I have been working in early childhood education since 2011 and have truly found my passion in working with children and families.
On a more personal note, I have been married to my college sweetheart since October of 2015. We bought our first house in Denver in January of 2019 and love getting out and about in the city! We have two cats and two dogs and love spending time going on adventures with our dogs.
Hello! My name is Amy and I am deeply proud of and thankful for my position as the assistant director at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool of Littleton. I have been a part of this incredible family since we opened our doors in 2016. It has been an experience full of growth laughter and fun and I look forward to many more years!
I started as the lead pre-kindergarten teacher after graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with my bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. I fell in love with this company because of the unique curriculum, supportive leaders, and the countless ways to grow in my profession. Now, as the assistant director, I have discovered so much about myself as a leader and am eternally grateful for the relationships that have flourished with all children, families and teachers.
My son, Torey, also attends Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and he is as happy as I am. I feel truly blessed to be able to experience his growth and development on a daily basis. In our free time, Torey and I love to get out and get active. Our favorite places are the basketball courts and the swimming pool! We also have a passion for food; we are always out and about trying new and unique restaurants!

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. We believe that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives.
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.”
