Meet The Director

Kelly Allen

Her career in Early Childhood Education began in 2009, and since then she has established experience in educating ages varying from "wobblers" to preschool aged children. Aside from her years in education, she has many years of serving in children's and youth ministries with True North Church, where she has attended since 2007. With both her experience in education and ministry, she recognizes how important a solid foundation is for helping children grow into the person God has created them to be. Kelly's desire is to partner with families in the investment of their children's lives, education and their relationship with Jesus!

Kelly has lived in Fairbanks since 2003, and shortly after began attending UAF for her courses in Early Childhood Education. She married her wonderful husband Russell years later in 2019, and together they have four boys ages 10, 9, 8 and 2 Years old.
