Center Director: Kayla Buzzard

I am a Colorado Native, born and raised in Brighton Colorado with my 4 older brothers.  I relocated when I received word that Hugo was opening a Learning Center.  Most of my family lives on the eastern plains so to be given this opportunity to be closer to them is a blessing.  My son Easton and I now live on the family ranch in Wild Horse, Colorado. I have worked in child care centers for 8 years as an infant, toddler, and preschool teacher.  I also spent time as a curriculum coordinator before becoming the director at CLLC.  I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology and I am ECE Directors Certified. I am beyond excited to be a part of the CLLC family.
