About me

Hey! I'm Lauren!
I moved around a lot growing up because my dad was in the military, so making friends quickly and getting involved in community activities has been so important my entire life! It's made me motivated, intuitive, and a quick study.
I've always loved working with kids, helping them succeed, and be creative. In high school I began babysitting and serving with the kids team at the church my family went to. In college, I worked as an RA in the freshman dorms where creating community, coming up with fun activities, and being a mentor to incoming students was paramount. The summer before my senior year I worked as a camp counselor at French Woods Camp for the Performing Arts in upstate New York, living, teaching and hanging with the most amazing kids - mainly girls aged 7-11. During my senior year of college I was a nanny for the sweetest and smartest 3 year old and the park was definitely our favorite place!
I have worked with children one on one and in large groups, primarily with ages 2 to 18. My favorite thing about working with young kids is watching them discover the world, their likes and dislikes, and how innately inventive they are. When working with older kids, I love helping them discover and meet their goals while enhancing their leadership skills.
My experience with coordinating events, organizing, and communicating vital information lends itself well to ensuring that expectations are met and exceeded.
I would love the opportunity to meet your family!


I have professional child care experience with...

  • Toddlers
  • Preschoolers
  • School-aged (K-5)
  • Teenagers
  • Multiples

I will be SmartSitting while...

Spending quality time with friends and family, practicing aerial yoga, reading, exploring the out-of-doors, and trying to convince myself not to on-line shop.

In 5 years, I hope to be...

A Theater and English teacher either at a school or a local performing arts studio.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

I studied theater so I love helping kids flex their creative muscles by playing dress-up, improv games, making up stories and songs, reading books with them and playing board games! I love to help kids with their homework--it's so wonderful to get to watch them begin to understand new topics. I think one of the most important skills you can teach a child is to lead by example and be kind and respectful to everyone we encounter!
