Meet Our Director, Taylor Luckey
Hello! My name is Taylor Luckey, and I am so excited to provide a space where children and parents feel supported, loved, and heard. I am happy to create an environment for your children that is high quality care and helps your child grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
I have lived in Colorado my whole life and have enjoyed it! I have a husband of 5 years and 2 kiddos who are 3 and 7 months old. We love to spend as much family time together doing things that we love such as cars, camping, and enjoying the outdoors. I earned my Director’s Certificate and my Early Childhood Teacher Certificate through Aims Community College. I am also in the process of finishing my associate degree and graduating in May 2023. Being a Director has been my dream career, and I am so grateful to be able to pursue this career with the Sunshine House!
Meet Our Assistant Director, Lindsey Saunders
My name is Lindsey Saunders, and I am so excited to be a part of the Sunshine House team! I have my Bachelor’s in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Business from Colorado State University and have been in the Early Childhood world since 2012. I have had a passion for working with children since a very young age and am so excited to get the opportunity to care for you and your family.
I was born and raised in Longmont, CO and moved to California after obtaining my degree here in Fort Collins. While I was in California, I met my fiancé Sean and we moved back to Fort Collins in the summer of 2022. When I am not working, I love to spend time with Sean and our two huskies, go to concerts, and travel as much as I can!
