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 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. All throughout college, I was a nanny for two kiddos in Boulder and I knew that being with kids and helping them learn was my true passion. After graduating from college, I decided to follow that passion and found a job at a local preschool here in Denver. They took a chance on me without having any Early Childhood Education classes, and I started as an assistant teacher in the infant room. From there I took classes to become a lead qualified teacher and got my own classroom with toddlers. After becoming a leader of multiple toddler classrooms, I’ve continued my education to become director qualified! I am currently in a graduate program at University of Colorado – Denver to obtain my master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education.
On a more personal note, I got married in October 2015 in Palmer Lake, Colorado to my college sweetheart! My husband and I now live in Littleton with our dog and two cats! We enjoy traveling and going on adventures with our dog, Sacky!
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 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
