Jim and Cathy Sunderman- Owners

Jim Sunderman is a graduate of Xavier University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Jim has over 40 years of management experience. Jim and Cathy are also the owners of the All About Kids West Fork location. Jim was the successful owner of an independent grocery store for many years. The grocery business ran in his family and he was the fourth generation to take up the trade. After the family sold the store, Jim was approached with the idea of building a childcare center on the west side of town. He was impressed with the quality of care at All About Kids Liberty Township when he went for a visit and decided that this would be a wonderful opportunity for his family. Jim is very involved at both centers and you will often see Rosie, Jim’s beagle, right by his side while he is working at the center. 

Cathy Sunderman graduated from The University of Cincinnati with an associate degree in 1979. Jim and Cathy were married in 1980 and have four daughters and eight grandchildren. She spent many years as a stay-at-home mother and also cared for a few children in her house as well. During this time, she was a Girl Scout leader, softball coach, and girls’ basketball co-coordinator at St. Ignatius School. Cathy worked alongside Jim at the grocery store with their four daughters. After the grocery store was sold, she worked for a major retailer in downtown Cincinnati for 11 years. She now helps out at both daycare centers. Her hobbies include spending time with her family and friends.

Carly Oborn- Business Manager

 

Hi, my name is Carly Oborn and I have been working with All About Kids Childcare and Learning Center since 2008. In 2005, I graduated from The College of Mount Saint Joseph with a bachelor’s degree in business. I first started working when I was a child at my family’s grocery store on Beekman Street. I learned many good life lessons at that store and am grateful to have had that experience. When my family decided to open the All About Kids Green Township location, I was excited about the new opportunity. I worked out of our West Fork Road location for five years and have been working between both locations since we opened the Filview Circle location in 2013. I love watching the children learn and grow. It’s amazing to see how much they change in the course of a couple of years. Now that my husband, Andy, and I have a daughter and young son, I see first hand how precious these years are because they pass by so quickly. In my spare time I like to be outdoors, go to concerts, and work on projects around our house. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful children, families and co-workers!
