I want you to know that R.E.A.L. Kids is so much more than quality Christian child-care, we are a ministry. You and your children are always in my prayers. It is my sincere desire to do whatever I can to meet the needs of the families and children in my care. My goal is to share the love of Jesus with each and every child so that they know they are loved and cared for by Him always. I will strive to make your child's experience at R.E.A.L. Kids an enjoyable, loving, safe and educational one. Please feel free to contact me anytime. I will make every effort to assist you and your child in any way possible. 



My name is Hayden Dewey, and I am a junior at Cheney High School. I am involved in Art Club, National Honors Society, and I’m the Junior Class President. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and making art. I’m so excited to be working at Real Kids, and to continue making connections with the kids here.



I'm Damon Galloway and I've lived here in Cheney since I was about four years old. I have one older brother and three younger sisters. Right now I am a Junior at Cheney High School. I love to read, play a whole lot of sports, and hang out with my friends. I'm not sure what I will be doing in the future but working with children is definitely a possibility. I am really looking forward to helping out at REAL kids!

On a side note: Damon is a fabulous piano player and thanks to him we now have a GaGa ball pit that he helped to build for the kids.



Hi, my name is Ashlyn Thomas! I am currently a sophomore studying Elementary Education at Wichita State University. I grew up in Garden Plain and graduated high school there in 2017. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family or recreating crafts I find on Pinterest. I also enjoy being outdoors and just having fun! I look forward to meeting and caring for all of the amazing kids at REAL Kids!

(On a side note: Ashlyn is the daughter of Michelle Thomas who is one of the fabulous Kindergarten teachers at Cheney Elementary).
