Our user-friendly LuvNotes™ is a secured platform that allows your child’s teacher to stay in better communication with you throughout the day.

We know that if children enjoy learning at a young age it will carry with them throughout their lives!

Mrs. Lynda, Program Director

“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 started 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!

I grew up in Colorado Springs, CO before becoming a Buffalo at the University of Colorado – Boulder (Go Buffs!), 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 got married in October 2015 in Palmer Lake, Colorado to my college sweetheart. My husband and I bought a house in Denver in January of 2019 with our dog and two cats! We enjoy traveling and going on adventures with our dog, Sacky.”

Ms. Amy, Assistant Director

Hello! My name is Amy and I have been a part of the Little Sunshine’s family since we opened in May of 2016. I started as the Lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher after graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with my bachelor’s 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 (thanks to all his amazing teachers)! In our free time, Torey and I love to get out and get active, spending as much time in the sunlight as possible. We also have a passion for food; we are always out and about trying new and unique restaurants!

“My son started at LSP when they first opened and he was 18 months old. Now he is almost 4! We have journeyed up through the classrooms and we have never had a negative experience. We have loved all of his teachers. They really do so much for the kiddos there. The food they serve is excellent. We love the range of activities they provide. Having cameras in the classroom and playground is a huge plus! I love being able to check in on my son throughout the day. The owners Chelsea and Jordon truly care and they are so wonderful. I know my son is in good hands when he is here!” – The Varley Family


“I have been very impressed every time I have visited Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in Littleton. Staff are very welcoming and the building is very clean and organized. They also have many wonderful learning activities in place for the children who are enrolled.” – The Hutchinson Family


“I can’t say enough good things about LSP! The environment is very warm and you can tell the staff care about the kids. The cameras were a huge plus for my husband and I to see our daughter while we were at work. We enjoyed getting luvnotes with pictures and activities that the teachers did with the kids.” – The Trahan Family


“Amazing experience at LSP Littleton! All the teachers do a great job at making the kiddos feel welcome everyday. It’s a wonderful family run company that cares about the families and staff.” – The Floyd Family


“My 2 year old son has been going to LSP for the past 6 months and it’s been absolutely amazing. The owners are so kind, the program director is a delight, the chef is awesome and the teachers are always positive and in a great mood. I am always informed on what my son is learning. Highly recommend Little Sunshine Playhouse!” – The Vormittag
