Stacy Akers

Director of Lads and Lassies Community Preschool

Stacy has been in education since 1996 and has been the director of Lads and Lassies since 2010.

Stacy has a Bachelors Degree in Education and a K-8 certification from Miami University. She taught 3rd grade for several years, before having her children. She entered the field of Early Childhood Education in 2003 at Lads and Lassies and quickly realized preschool was the place for her! She set out to learn all she could about how young children learn. Stacy was introduced to The Project Approach and the schools of Reggio Emilia, and found it to be such a beautiful and authentic way to work alongside children. This approach/philosophy has become the heart of her work with children at Lads and Lassies.
