Ms. Becky- Director

Hi, My name is Becky Ressler and I have the privilege of being the center Director here at All About Kids. My career with this center started in May 2017 where I began my journey as the Kindergarten teacher. Within that year I learned a lot about our philosophy and developed a strong connection with parents, staff and of course everyone’s pride and joy our children. May 2018 I took on the role of the Assistant Director to now be the center Director.

I am originally from Massillon, Ohio where I grew up with three brothers and one sister. Shortly after high school I met my husband in 2005. I am passionate about early childhood education and advocating for children and their families. I absolutely love working with and learning from children. I began studying early childhood education in high school completing over 900 hours of hands on training with children of all ages from 6 weeks through 12 years of age. After high school, I continued studying early childhood education and a minor study in abnormal psychology for a year and a half before moving to Columbus. I obtained my Preschool CDA Credentials at Ashworth College fall of 2020. I have also taken the lead with developing our Creative Curriculum here at All About Kids and the full training of our staff.

My Goals are to give children the chance to create great memories, experiences, and to give your children someone they can trust. I want students to learn to use the resources around them. I am passionate about helping your children open their minds to new surroundings and challenges.

Thank you for accepting me into the AAK family. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. HAPPY LEARNING! Feel free to stop by and say hi!
