Welcome from the Director

Hello Little Sprouts Families!

We are excited that you will be joining us for the 2020-2021 school year here at Little Sprouts.  I am Ashley Ryks and I will be the Director for the Little Sprouts program.  For those of you who don't know me, I would like to take a minute to tell you a little bit about myself. 

My husband Andrew and I have been married for nine years and we have three children who all attend ACA.  Zoey is our oldest and she will be in Second grade, Hazel and Levi are our twins and they will be in Kindergarten this upcoming year.  This will be our fourth year here at ACA and we have loved it!  I have over ten years of experience in the Child Care field.  I started out as a teacher with two year olds and three year olds, I was the Assistant Director for the Grapevine-Colleyville ISD's Early Childhood Development Center for five years, and then I moved into the Director position over the GCISD's 11 afterschool programs. 

After staying home with my kids for four years I joined the Little Sprouts' team back in November as the Two year old teacher.  I received my Bachelor degree from The University of Texas in Government and then went on to pursue my Master of Education from Dallas Baptist University, specializing in Early Childhood Education.  I absolutely love working with young children and watching the connections form in their brains as they learn about the world around them that God has created.

In Him,

Ashley Ryks, M.Ed
