Cindy Whisman- Director

Hi, I am Cindy and I am the  Director of All About Kids Anderson. Before moving to this position, I taught the Pre-K classroom at All About Kids, since 2011. I currently hold two Associate degrees and a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati. I also obtained a teaching license through the state of Ohio for Pre-Kindergarten.

I have two children who keep me very busy with their various activities. I love working with children and seeing their eyes light up when they discover something new. Working at AAK is great because we are teaching the future about recycling and being green!

I work 6:30-2:30 Monday through Friday and would love the opportunity to speak with you about your child’s needs. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak with me in person or via email, cwhisman@allaboutkidslc.com.

Morgan Lunsford- Assistant Director

Hi, my name is Morgan Lunsford and I am the Assistant Director here at All About Kids. I am married with a daugher Kensley, and a son Rhett. I am from the Mt. Orab area, attending the Western Brown school district through high school. I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2014, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and Human Ecology. At that time they did not have a program that would allow me to graduate with my license, so since graduating, I have been attending Notre Dame College online to complete the coursework for my Early Education license.

I started working with children while in college, working at a private preschool is Dublin and transferring to another school in Blue Ash until I had to take time off in order to complete in class observation hours required for my courses. This past semester, I student taught a 2nd grade classroom in Hamersville and now have just one course before I meet the requirements to receive my license.

I love working with kids because I think it’s fascinating to watch them develop and discover the world in their own way. Helping a child to overcome an obstacle or achieve a personal milestone is immensely rewarding because you can watch the child take pride in their self. I welcome parents to approach me with any concerns or questions because I think parent-teacher communication is a key to success, and children can also learn a lot by just watching adults that care about them communicate in positive ways.

My email is mlunsford@allaboutkidslc.com if I can ever answer any questions you may have!
