Evan & Stephanie Davis- Owners

Evan and Stephanie Davis are the proud owners of All About Kids, Hilliard. They opened their doors in July of 2017 as the fourteenth All About Kids Childcare and Learning Center, and the third in Central Ohio. They first met at the University of Cincinnati and are proud to call themselves Cincinnati Alumni.

Evan is from Cincinnati, Ohio where he grew up surrounded by a family in the construction industry. At an early age, he realized that his passion also lied in this field- specifically, in business and construction management. He obtained a bachelors degree in construction management while also playing as the starting center for the football team. After graduation, he was determined to start his own company, E.J. Davis Co. where he has successfully maintained his upstanding reputation today. He serves various organizations and customers throughout Ohio offering a wide range of construction services.

Stephanie received a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Cincinnati. After graduation she moved back to her hometown of Hilliard, Ohio (she is also a proud Ohio State fan- Go Bucks!). She became a substitute teacher for Columbus City Schools while preparing to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse. Stephanie completed her Masters of Science in Nursing from Mount Saint Joseph University in 2014 and moved back to Columbus to work as a general surgery nurse at Riverside Methodist Hospital. While Evan and Stephanie dated from separate cities for a while, they closed the gap in 2016 when they got married. Stephanie began working in the trauma and surgical intensive care unit at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where she currently works the night shift.

In their spare time, Evan and Stephanie enjoy traveling, being outdoors and spending time with their family, friends, and their dog, Wilbur. They were presented with the opportunity to join the All About Kids family and were excited to work together on this new endeavor using their various backgrounds and mutual love for the environment and education. It was an easy decision to join All About Kids after learning about their innovative curriculum and exceptional security. As the only true “green” childcare centers in the United States, All about Kids has LEED-certified buildings with energy-saving features and educate children on the importance of being good stewards to their environment through various ways of hands on learning.

Evan and Stephanie couldn’t have been more excited to assist in the building and development of the state-of-the-art facility. Now that the center is up and running, they have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the families that attend All About Kids. They are involved in the day-to-day activity of All About Kids, Hilliard and they welcome you to stop by and meet the friendly staff and see what All About Kids has to offer. They look forward to seeing you!

Christina Crosby- Assistant Director

Hello, My name is Christina and I am the Assistant Director here at All About Kids. I bring over 8 years of experience in the Early Childhood Education field to AAK.

I discovered my passion for early childhood education while working at a local recreation center. I then became an infant teacher in 2014 where I taught the 12-18-month age group for a corporate center. During my time at this center I had the opportunity to work with all age groups. In 2016 wanting a change in pace, I moved to a privately-owned center as a teacher. Within 2 months with the company I was promoted to an Assistant Director position.

I currently hold a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and I’m working on obtaining my CDA. I bring a wealth of knowledge in classroom management and curriculum to AAK. When I’m not at the center I enjoy spending time with my two girls Kaylee (8) and Rose (2). I also enjoys scrapbooking and going to church.

I am looking forward to partnering and building a personal relationship with you and your family to provide the best care and education for your Child. Feel free to stop by my office anytime between the hours of 10:30am -6:30pm, I am always willing to help in any way that I can.
