Chris and Marilyn Lohrman are married, have raised five daughters and twin sons and live in Loveland. All seven children were active in school-age programs and athletics so we were actively involved with the schools, athletic programs and school related programs (ie. Girl Scouts, youth athletic programs including coaching and dance organizations). We also have four granddaughters. Our love of children is what led us to develop a daycare/preschool.
We both have served as a board member and an officer of a cooperative preschool where parents were directly involved. Chris oversaw the creation of a charter elementary school for low income children in downtown Cincinnati and served on the board.
We strongly understand the importance of offering a safe and clean green learning center (registered with USGBC) where your child will feel comfortable and have the opportunity to be challenged to learn at his or her level.
We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your children and have you become members of the All About Kids at Wards Corner family in the Loveland/Milford area!
Hello, my name is Kelly Morgan and I am the Executive Director here at the All About Kids at Wards Corner. I was born and raised here in Cincinnati where I attended Wilmington College and received a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I am licensed in Ohio to teach preschool through third grade classes. I have over ten years experience in education and working with children and their families. I live in Bethel with my wonderful husband, Kevin, our daughter Brianna and our grandson Raylan, and our adorable dog Karma. In my free time, I enjoy reading, camping and hiking. My favorite thing to do is spend time with Kevin and our kids, and Karmie.
I chose to go into education because of my children. Volunteering in their classrooms and working with the students, teachers and administration allowed me to realize that teaching is what I was meant to do. I find that children are remarkable in the way they are able to learn new concepts and always see the bright side of life. I feel inspired every day at the school by my students, my team and their families. My students are so kind and eager to learn and my team is loving to one and all and are enthusiastic about teaching.
