Ms. Melissa- Director

 

Hi everyone, my name is Melissa and I am so excited to be the Director at All About Kids Childcare and Learning Center of Lewis Center. A little bit about me: I grew up in New York where I attended college for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I have a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Educational Counseling. I would like to think I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise from 12 years of previous management experience from both private and corporate child care learning centers.  I am the proud mom to 3 boys who are now 13, 15 and 18 and a goldendoodle named Marlee.   They keep me busy with all of their activities and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I am originally from New York and moved here in 2005. I began my career in Early Childhood Education in 2007 where I helped open a child care center as the Director. I am excited about the opportunity to join All About Kids. It is my goal to help provide the best care possible for your child/children and to build relationships with all the families.

Ms. Becky- Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Becky and I am one of the newest members here at All About Kids (May 2017). I am very excited to be a part of this family and to be a big part of your child’s learning process. I grew up in Canton, Ohio with four siblings. I moved to Columbus Ohio with my husband in 2015 where we plan to create our journey.

A little about myself – 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.

My Favorite Hobbies – I love being creative so I find DIY projects and baking very relaxing. I am currently teaching myself how to crochet, but still a work in progress.

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 want them to read something or see something that they are interested in and follow up on it. I am passionate about helping your children to 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!

Ms. Brittany- School Age

Hello, My name is Brittany. I was born and raised in Columbus. I graduated from Bishop Hartley High School in 2010. I played basketball all 4 years I was there. It was a wonderful experience being able to get an education from a school as such. From there, I went on to attend a small private Quaker institution called Earlham College. I decided on this school because I would be able to play basketball and I wanted an academic challenge. I received my BA in Psychology. I first worked in a daycare when my Aunt owned one in the past. I do enjoy working with the kids and I wish to one day work as a psychologist to help our youth develop into their strongest persona. I am multi-talented; I enjoy working with computers to develop creative projects and I have great fascination with technology in general.
