Hello! My name is Cortney Kraham and I joined this wonderful school as the Center Director in June of 2014. I graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and obtained my teaching license. My husband and I both grew up in Vermont, but fell in love with the beautiful Colorado mountains and moved out here in 2004.
I have worked as a teacher in several different child care centers and schools before moving into a management position. I have been a director of two nationally accredited schools, one in Vermont and one in Colorado, since 2006. My favorite thing about my job is getting to work with all of the children and families in the center to provide the highest quality care and education.
In my free time, I enjoy horseback riding, being outside in the Colorado sunshine, and above all else, spending time with my two amazing children! I look forward to watching your children learn and grow.
We love the Sunshine House! Our youngest baby has been attending since January and we have seen tremendous growth with her. She is able to communicate with us now through sign language and even took her first steps shortly after starting. Jessica and Lindsey have been so great in bonding with her and sharing her experiences with us through pictures and stories.
My children have been attending since Sept. 2013 and I couldn’t be happier. When I go pick up or drop off, my children are always happy. They are very playful, the staff is always down at the children’s level, and I can tell there was always some kind of fun activity that had been going on throughout the day! I can tell my children are very loved, welcomed, and appreciated for who they are even! I am very impressed with the center, the director, assistant director, and all the teachers.

We absolutely love the Sunshine House! My daughter started there at 3 months and we could not be any happier with our experience. We love her teachers and all of the learning activities they do everyday. I have total confidence in the care my daughter receives there and I know she has a wonderful time while she is there. I highly recommend the Sunshine House!
Really happy with our experience here! We moved to CO from out of state & both of our kids had been at the same early learning center since they were infants, so we were nervous about the transition, but the entire staff at Sunshine House made us feel extremely welcome and helped our boys through the whole process. We're really pleased with the curriculum, the center has great hours for working parents, the snacks & meals are a big bonus and our kids have made some great friends! Highly recommended!
