Darcie Lacroix – Early Childhood Program Manager

In Darcie’s words: “I am so excited to work for the children, parents and professionals of this region for the betterment of our early childhood education programs. I look forward to spreading awareness about the importance of quality early childhood care and education. Please reach out with any ideas, questions or comments, I’d love to meet you!  A little about me… I was born in Cascade, ID and attended K-12 school there, followed by five years at the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) where I received a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Development, Education and Special Education (2009). I then completed an internship with the Idaho Dept of Health & Welfare in their Infant-Toddler program followed by student teaching at Morley Nelson Elementary School in their Kindergarten & developmental preschool. During the summers I enjoyed fighting wildland fires for Southern Idaho Timber. Between then & now I dispatched for The Valley County Sheriff’s office for over seven years, as well as assistant teaching at Horizon Elementary school, substitute teaching in Valley county, and eventually became the Director of Kingdom Kids Daycare where I also taught preschool for 3 years. I absolutely love & enjoy children. I am a mother to four of my own young children – they are my life’s greatest joy! My wonderful husband Mike, and I enjoy spending time with our children in the beautiful outdoors and are active members of the Cascade Community Church. We will celebrate 10 years of marriage this year (2021).
