Hello! My name is Maddi Howard and I am the Assistant Director at All About Kids Mason/Kings Mills. I worked here as a teacher for two and a half years before becoming Assistant Director. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies. During that time I also had an internship with the Newport Aquarium as an Outreach educator, which is when I realized how much I love working with children. I have a son named Jack who is 6 years old. Some of our favorite things to do together include hiking, swimming, visiting museums and going to the movies. I also love music and play several instruments. I really enjoy working at All About Kids, it has become a second home and a family for me. My goal is for all of the children who attend to feel comfortable, safe and happy here while they continue to grow and learn.

Hi! My name is Amber Owens. I’m a foodie. I’ll try anything at least once. Except beans. Green beans, baked beans and jelly beans are as adventurous as I am with them. I am very family oriented. I love to spend time with my older and younger sister, mom and dad, 8 nieces and nephews, my god family, my fiancé and her immediate family, and my 7 year old chihuahua (Zander) whom I consider my son. I am a Disney fanatic. You will probably be able to spot at least one piece of Disney memorabilia in every room of my apartment. I never get bored re-watching Disney classics or listening to Disney music. My whole world revolves around children. Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to be a teacher and a mother. I went to parenting classes in high school, went to Butler Tech for early childhood and I took a couple classes in special education at Miami University. I have worked in childcare for 4.5 years now, and I can honestly say I love my job.
Hi, my name is Caitlyn. I am the opening teacher for our infant 2 classroom. I work 7:00am-4:00pm Monday -Thursday. I went to the career center for Early Childhood Education and have been in childcare for 4 years now. I’m also a mother to my 3 year old son, Bryson. I believe that babies learn best through play and from other kids. Babies are my favorite age group; they are so much fun!
My name is Ally, and I am one of the teachers in Room 3. I was nanny for one year before coming to All About Kids. I hold a certification as a nursing aid. I am also cpr/first aid certified.

Hi! My name is Savannah. I have lived in Cincinnati my whole life. I graduated from Reading High School in 2019. I enjoy spending my time with my 1 year old golden retriever named Ralph, after work.

My name is Jessica Sachs; I am the opening teacher in room 6. I graduated from Fairfield Senior High in 2013, and am furthering my education at The University of Cincinnati for Early Childhood Education. My goal is to graduate with a masters and become an elementary school teacher. Before starting AAK, I had been working with children for several years. I began babysitting and helping out at the Jewish Community Center at the age of 12. I began tutoring when I was 15 and also helped with my younger siblings. In 2016 I got my first assistant teaching job at the Fairfield Education Building. The experience and knowledge I gained from working there was amazing, but I got offered a nanny job. I worked for the family for 2 months before mom decided to be a stay at home mom. After that came to a close, I got offered the great opportunity to work at AAK. I am very excited to grow and learn alongside your children. I work Monday through Friday 7:00am-4:00pm and would be happy to answer any questions or concerns that arise.
Hi! My name is Courteney Grubb! I am one of the teachers in room6! This is my first time teaching at All About Kids and I have been here since July 2019. I have been a toddler teacher for a little over 1 1/2 years. I love being a toddler teacher and look forward to the fun we have exploring and learning. I was born in Vero Beach, Florida but I grew up in Norwood, Ohio. I graduated from Norwood high school. My favorite sports are soccer, basketball and football. I am a full time mommy. I have a little girl named Kensley who is almost 2 years old. I also have a little one on the way. So when I am not at AAK teaching, I am at home spending time with my family.
Hi, I am Niya Eifert. I am the closing teacher for room 7. I graduated from Princeton High School. I love working with kids, because you can learn new things. I have 3 boys, Ray that is 10 and twin boys Bryant and Tre that are 4. Having children made me realize children have all different kinds of needs. I like to read, write poetry, dance and watch movies. I also like to volunteer in my spare time. I am very excited to work at AAK. I will be here M-F 2:30-6:30.
Hi! My name is Maggie Galan, and I am the closer in room 8! I am a current student at the University of Cincinnati. I love working with children because I love knowing that I can help provide strong foundations, and be a major influence in their lives as they grow. Children have the most rich and vivid imaginations. It has been amazing being able to dive into the mind of these children and get a glimpse of how they see the world, void of societal norms and responsibilities. I never leave work without learning something new. The diversity in the students and their learning styles make coming to work an enjoyable experience. They inspire me to do more with my life, so that I can help better them. Children have such an open heart and mindset, and that has to be the best part of working with them. I am here from 8:30am-6:30pm Mon-Wed and Friday. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know! I look forward to getting to know everyone and create many new memories each and every day.
Hello Parents! My name is Nicole and I am currently the closer for Room 8 (4-5) year old’s. I am also the wife of two and half years, and a mom to a beautiful sassy little girl. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a bachelors in World History in hopes of teaching at a high school. I have worked with children most of my life (i.e. baby sitting or nannying); but have been working in the childcare industry for the last two years. I started at a childcare facility in Auburn, Alabama where I worked with children as young as two months to 12 years old. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the children’s personalities and creativity emerge and grow with each stage of life. I hope to be a guide and teacher in all the children who come to play at All About Kids. Feel free to ask me any questions or voice a concern; I will do my best to help you in any way I can.
