Annette is the Director at our Sheridan location. Annette has worked in the early childhood field since 1993. She is a mother of two and a grandmother of four.
She has worked for the owners of Avant Garde (previously named Koala Care) in the past, and was a director for them for 10 years. When she found out the owners were opening another quality childcare program, she had to be part of the action!
What she loves most about working at Avant Garde is being around all the kids each day. She says, “I love watching babies start in our infant room and develop all the way through until they leave for kindergarten. It’s bittersweet, but I’m always so happy to see how much they have learned and grown during their time at Avant Garde.”
Her hobbies include supporting her grandchildren at their games and taking care of her sweet dogs.
Caitlin is the Director at our Brookside location. Caitlin was born and raised in Arkansas, and moved to Oklahoma in 2015.
Caitlin has a Bachelors in Education from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, AR. She has taught 7th grade English, as well as worked in many other Early Childhood learning centers & preschools.
Caitlin loves working with children because of the ‘light bulb’ moments when they understand something for the first time.
Hobbies: Arkansas Razorback sporting events, going to the lake, finding new local places to eat, reading, and coaching basketball.
Avant Garde is happy to have an extremely dedicated and highly qualified staff who attend regular, ongoing training above state licensing requirements. Our owners have over 15 years of experience managing and operating local preschools in Tulsa, formerly known as Koala Care. We have the best team of people that make every day possible!
