Ms. Ashley- Director

Hello, my name is Ashley  and I am the Director here at All About Kids Childcare and Learning Center in New Albany.  I live just south of Columbus with my husband, our three kids (two boys and a girl) and our dog, Beanie.  I grew up in a small town in Northern Ohio but moved to Columbus 11 years ago to attend The Ohio State University where I obtained both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Social Work.

I have been working with children in a childcare setting for the past 5 years and have loved every moment of it!  I have advanced along the way in my career from Early Preschool and Toddler teacher to various roles in an administration.  I believe that children need to feel loved while having a safe and secure way to learn about themselves as well as their environment around them.

I am honored to be apart of the All About Kids family and am looking forward to getting to know all of the Children and their families along the way.
