Welcome to the new school year!
It is amazing to work with your kids at our centers. Our staff is vigilant, caring and upholding to the highest health and safety standards.
I’m Nancy Shepherd, PACCC Board Chair for 2021-2022. The Palo Alto Community and School District have been significant contributors to my family. I raised four children and have lived in Palo Alto since 1984. My oldest is a teacher at Paly and Gunn High Schools and my daughter-in-law is a teacher aid at Nixon. While my two grandsons attend Walter Hays and my granddaughter just graduated from Paly.
In the past I’ve been PTA Council President, served on Palo Alto City Council and was Mayor in 2014. I’m proud to serve this vital organization. Fun facts: Did you know that the City started PACCC in 1974 after six mothers went to a city council meeting and asked for high quality, affordable child care in 1969? Our focus to serve working families has been a constant thread throughout our years of service to the families of Palo Alto.
I look forward to continued collaboration with the PACCC Community, City of Palo Alto, Palo Alto Unified School District and our greater community to support our vision: A community where children thrive, educators are valued and families are supported. Please feel free to reach out to me to learn how you may be able to support our community and its mission.
