Ovella Lott, known in the field of Early Childhood Education as Ms. Peaches (nicknamed by an aunt at birth), has almost 27 years of experience working in early education, teen services, and family support. She has also been taking college course work for just about as long to keep up to date with the changes in the early childhood field. She is married with five amazing children and seven grandchildren. Her journey has taken her throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area as well as Illinois. Now she is very proud to be the Director of University City Children’s Center. Ms Peaches believes that all children should be free to be children and have the opportunity to experience playfulness. Her door at UCCC is always open for big hugs, conversation, support, motivation or encouragement.
