Lauren’s Bio

  Greetings! My name is Lauren "Willough" McEnroe and I am looking for a full OR part-time Nanny position. I have been babysitting since I was 9 and I have been a full-time nanny off and on since 1998. I have over ten years of experience with children of all ages and backgrounds. I have been a camp counselor since I was 15, and I even ran my own summer camps for a few years. I got grants from the government when I was 17 to run Spirit Camp. We bussed inner-city Native American children to our 250 acre farm and taught them about co-operation, respect and reverence for eachother, all life and Mother Earth. We taught yoga, meditation, agriculture, horseback riding and more.
 The results were AMAZING!!! Many of these children had behavioral problems and learning disabilities. By the end of our program these children we outshining the best of them. Or biggest "problem child" ended up being the Activities Leader and helped all of the younger children so much, that we got a special grant just for him to come back on the weekends to ride horses. We had two girls whom had witnessed their mother murder their father. One sister hadn't spoken in a year and the other hadn't laughed or smiled in the same time. We have them both on video laughing and talking with the other children. Since then I have run a couple of my own Healing Hands for Kids camp in which I teach children meditation and Reiki which definetly help with ADD/ADHD children who need to learn inner calm.
 I have a Community Service Award for volunteering my time to be a Teacher's Aide to Special Needs children. I have been a PCA for disabled adults with disabilties ranging from severe Rhuematoid Arthritis to Autism.
I LOVE kids. (If you hadn't guessed already !) I love to play. I was in the drama club throughout elementary and high school and I love to act things out and use my imagination. At the summer camps I was the games/activities co-ordinator. My favorite thing is to make a game up about whatever subject we just learned. For instance, after learning all the parts of a saddle we would play a version of t.v. tag, but instead of using t.v. shows, you would have to say the parts of a saddle or you would be tagged. It works great for studying schoolwork like vocab, capitals etc...
I would say playtime is my specialty although I can be a strict disciplinarian when it is called for. ( I am a big fan of time-outs but of course I would work with whatever discipline you currently are using.) I also love to make up projects and do arts and crafts. As long as we are busy and having a great time, I don't mind doing much of anything whether it be taking them to soccer or having an outing at the aquarium. As long as we aren't sitting at home in front of the TV. (That is my one requirement.)
I also don't mind doing errands, laundry, light housework and/or cooking meals as long as I am compensated appropriately and I am not treated like Cinderella! =)
 I love all ages, I don't know if I have a preffered age. There is something wonderful about every stage of a child's developement. I don't mind multiple children or even multiple households. (At one time I was nannying for two families that lived next to eachother. One was a family of 5 children (twin 4 year olds, a 3 year old, and 11 year old and a 13 year old in one family and a 4 year old, an 8 year old, an 10 year old and a 13 year old in the other.)  Sometimes their days would over lap and I would have 9 kids!! It really didn't bother me. I can multi-task well and it became like a summer camp so everyone was helping eachother and having a great time.
 I have plenty of infant multiples experience as well as multiple infant experience. lol.  I am the mother of a beautiful 8 month old infant. I have worked for about four families with multiples ranging in ages from zero to 6 and I have a friend with triplet infants.  I was just recently working for a friend with what we call "Irish Twins" (13 months apart) and the afformentioned family of 5 had "Irish Triplets"!
 
  As for schooling, I didnt finish my Degree in Early Childhood Education but I do plan on finishing it sometime within the next couple years, even if it is an online course. I have multiple degrees in hands on healing and I teach many Metaphysical classes such as Meditation, Hands on Healing  and Kabbalah.
 My ultimate goal is to start my own school because I do not agree with the teaching styles nowadays. I feel that the system is outdated and something desparately needs to be done about this. I could go on and on about the atrocities of the current education system but that is not what this forum is for!
 Well, that pretty much covers it, if you have any questions abvout anything I said or anything I may have forgot to mention, please feel free to contact me. Email is the best way to get a hold of me, but please feel free to call 508 736 0600.
Thank you for your time in considering me as your child's nanny. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your amazing children.
