Kenzee Edwards- Front Desk Assistant

Hiya! My name is Kenzee and I am the front desk assistant here at All About Kids Anderson! I have worked for All About Kids since October of 2017 (though I did take a small hiatus this past summer to stay home with my kiddos!)
I began my journey here in Room 4 and spent majority of my time in this classroom building lasting relationships with families and aiding in the growth and development of all the children I had in my classroom.  Working with children is a great passion of mine. I take a lot of pride in it. I have 3 children of my own – my little sister Chayla, my son Zeke, and my daughter Kairie. Our family dynamic is different and I wouldn’t change it for the world. My fiance Nick, and I are high school sweethearts. We’ve been together since 2014 – pretty crazy! Outside of work I spend my time coaching cheer for our 7 year old West Clermont girls – I absolutely adore this! In any free time I do have, I enjoy resting (lol), spending quality time with my kids, crafting and making cheer bows!

My hours are 9:15a-6:15p Monday through Friday.

Hello, I’m Stephanie C. and I am one of the teachers in Room 1.  I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida and currently live in Anderson.  I live with my husband Dave and our three children, Jordan, Emily, and Michael, and our cat Mittens.  I have two Child Associate’s Degrees (one in Preschool and Child Development and the other in Infant Curriculum, Development and Care).

In my free time I enjoy running, Zumba, shopping and being in the sunshine.  My favorite thing to do in the world is walking the beach and collecting seashells.  I chose to work with children because ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher, so I decided to follow my dream.

I find inspiration everyday through working with the babies in the nursery and knowing that I am part of their first school experience.  I feel that it is a gift to me to help them explore the world around them.  I enjoy working at All About Kids because the staff is terrific to work with.  The name of the school says it all I think!  My hours are 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. if you need anything please let me know!
