Heather Fithen- Director

Hello, my name is Heather Fithen and I’m the Director here at All About Kids Fairfield. Me and Adam have 3 wonderful children between the two of us; Kayle, Izzy and Andrew. My favorite thing to do is to hang out with my family. I’m the oldest of 4 children, so I’ve known for a long time I’ve wanted to work with children in some way. I love seeing the world from a young child’s eyes.

I’ve been  at our Fairfield branch since 2015 however I’ve worked for our All About Kids Lakota Branch since 2006. Within that time I’ve had a chance to work in all of the classrooms at one point or another. I was in the 4 year old room for 7 years before moving up to be a part of front desk management. I’m so honored to be a part of the All About Kids family and getting to know all of the children and their parents. If you have any comments or concerns please feel free to contact me at: hdeufemia@allaboutkidslc.com
