Chris and Marilyn Lohrman - Owners
Chris and Marilyn Lohrman are married, have raised five daughters and twin sons and live in Loveland. All seven children were active in school age programs and athletics so we were actively involved with the schools, athletic programs and school related programs (ie. Girl Scouts, youth athletic programs including coaching and dance organizations). Our youngest is a Senior at Ohio University. We also have four granddaughters. Our love of children is what led us to develop a daycare/preschool.
We both have served as a board member and an officer of a cooperative preschool where parents were directly involved. Chris oversaw the creation of a charter elementary school for low income children in downtown Cincinnati and served on the Board.
We strongly understand the importance of offering a safe and clean green learning center (registered with USGBC) where your child will feel comfortable and have the opportunity to be challenged to learn at his or her level.
We welcome the opportunity to meet you and your children and have you become members of the All About Kids at Wards Corner family.
Kelly Morgan - Executive Director
Hello, my name is Kelly Morgan and I am the Executive Director here at the All About Kids at Wards Corner. I was born and raised here in Cincinnati where I attended Wilmington College and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am licensed in Ohio to teach Preschool through Third grade classes. I have over ten years experience in education and working with children and their families. I live in Bethel with my wonderful husband, Kevin, and our two amazing kids, Brianna and Kian. In my free time, I enjoy reading, camping, and hiking. My favorite thing to do is attend Kian’s many sporting events.
I chose to go into education because of my children. Volunteering in their classrooms and working with the students, teachers, and administration allowed me to realize that teaching is what I was meant to do. I find that children are remarkable in the way they are able to learn new concepts and always see the bright side of life. I feel inspired every day at the School by my students, my team, and the Owners. My students are so kind and eager to learn, my team is loving to one and all and are eager to teach, and the Owners’ dedication towards the School, our students, and our faculty is extraordinary.
I truly love my job here at All About Kids at Wards Corner and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you and your family. I am excited to create a safe and educational environment where your children can learn and grow. Please feel free to contact me about anything, anytime.

Children make me smile and forget about the problems in the world. Watching children grow and develop into their own person is an inspiration in its own. After having my son attend All About Kids at Wards Corner, I soon realized I wanted to be a part of the team. My co-workers here are very welcoming and I knew I made the right decision.
