Our Management Team
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 the quality of the teachers. She says, “you can truly see the passion that they have for the children.”
Her hobbies include supporting her grandchildren at their games and taking care of her sweet dogs.
Cheyenne is the Assistant Director at our Sheridan location. Cheyenne was born and raised in Oklahoma and is happily married with a rescue dog that she spoils like crazy.
Cheyenne started working in childcare in 2016 and has developed an immense passion for this job. She has her Childhood Development Associates in Infant and Toddlers (CDA), CPR and First-Aid Certifications, English Communications Associate’s degree, and Director’s Credentials. Cheyenne loves working with children because their curiosity is refreshing and the way they absorb everything reminds her to be more childlike when it comes to living her life.
Hobbies: Spending time with my family and my dog, traveling the world, knitting, and being outdoors. Someday, Cheyenne and her husband want to move to Europe to become missionaries working with orphaned children.
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!
