My name is Staci Hartz! The children call me Ms. Staci. I am the Director at West Jeff and am also a partner in owning ACC. I was a Preschool Teacher for 7 years and have been in day care for 21 years. I have 18 Early Childhood Credits as well. My favorite things to do at my site are group games and different types of sports both indoors and outdoors. I love my ACC Family!


My name is Lucy Shepard!  I have been the director at RMAE for 3 years.  I have over 18 years of experience working with children in day care and educational settings.  My favorite things are playing games with the children.  I love seeing the kids mature!


My name is Ruth Smith and I am the Director for ACC at Parmalee. I enjoy working with the kids at ACC because they are so full of life and laughter. I have worked with kids of all ages for many years, however, my favorites are primary aged children.

Hi, my name is Deb Evens! I am the Director at Marshdale and a partner in ownership of ACC. I have worked with children in various capacities for many years, a large share of which has been in the Evergreen/Conifer area. The children we have in our program are so creative, enthusiastic, full of life and energy; being able to work with them is a daily reminder of what is truly important in life! I am thrilled to be part of the ACC Team!
