Audrey Beaver- Director

Hello, my name is Audrey Beaver and I am the Director of All About Kids of Oakley. I am from the eastside of Cincinnati where I live with my husband and three children. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Education from the College of Mount St. Joseph in 2011 and began working at All About Kids in 2015. I am passionate about early childhood education and I believe that a strong program like ours is necessary to lay a solid foundation for young children to be successful in school and in life. “Child development does not mean developing your child into the person you think they should be, but helping them develop into the best person they are meant to be.” I am so excited to be a part of your child’s educational journey and I look forward to building a partnership with you and your family to support your child’s growth.

Jeni Langenecker- Administrative Assistant

Hello, my name is Jeni and I have been with All About Kids for 10 years. I started as a teacher in our infant program, but I have worked with all age groups. I love watching all children grow and learn every day. I enjoy working with children and having the opportunity to see them flourish with all of their different personalities. I feel that they allow you to be yourself and to get in touch with your inner child. It’s my goal to make sure that each child feels loved and cared for which helps their social and emotional growth. In my free time, I love to travel and explore. I enjoy the outdoors and so do my two puppies, Minion and Frankenstein. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am excited to meet your family and look forward to providing the best for all of our little ones!

Tasha N McDonald- Curriculum and Development Coordinator

Hey there! My name is Tasha and I am the Curriculum and Development Coordinator at All About Kids of Oakley! I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Chris, for 4 years now (together for 11 years) and we have two children, a nine year old boy, Braxton and five year old little girl, Blair. I have worked in childcare for about a decade now and have loved every second of it! Most of my early childhood education career has been in the classroom as a teacher. I would have to say my heart definitely belongs with the infants. Baby snuggles, their little smiles and creating fun crafts with their little feet has always brought me great joy. I enjoyed my time as an infant teacher but absolutely LOVE what I do now! I have always said that my favorite part about working in childcare is that no matter how difficult my day has been, the children will always hug me, smile, and tell me how excited they are to see me the next day. If I am not at work, you will find me spending time with my family and close friends, watching The Office or Bob’s Burgers, or crafting with my kids! I have a weakness for smoothies, slim jims, Cane’s chicken and Target!
