Hello, my name is Valorie and I am the Director at All About Kids of Montgomery! I have been working in the early childhood education field for the past twelve years and early education is my passion. I hold several early childhood certifications, including an infant and toddler CDA and a Bachelor’s degree in early childhood education for children birth through age three. My experience ranges from being a toddler and preschool teacher, an assistant in a kindergarten readiness program, and sitting on several local professional boards for early childhood education advocacy. I started as an early preschool teacher here at All About Kids in 2011 and have been the Director since 2013. I am the mother of three children. I live in Blue Ash with my husband, our children, and our pets. My favorite thing about working in early childhood education is that while we try to teach our children about life, they teach us what life is all about; their pure innocence and free spirit is something we should all reconnect with. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to stop by my office or reach out to me via e-mail at:
