Laurie’s Bio

I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old, which is about 13 years of experience. I've always loved being able to be my goofy, playful self, without ego and judgement. I find that I can connect on that level and at a heart level with children as well, to nurture healthy social/emotional and self-reliability development. Also I love teaching about the world around them to encourage wonder and participation. I basically hope to be the type of presence in a child's life that role models have been to me.

I recently left a child development center, working with around 11-20 (2-3 year old) children and 4-5 co-workers in the classroom. I absolutely LOVED working there and it was difficult to leave. For the year I was there, I built very deep relationships with the children and their families in my classroom and continue to babysit children from both school years.

In terms of discipline, I detest corporal punishment and do not believe in that as an option. I have also reported a former employee for child abuse. I believe talking with children to explain morals and help them understand and personalize the ideas is the most effective way to help guide children in a healthy direction.

My interests are sports (mainly soccer), arts (crafts, photography, pottery, drawing, etc.), and outdoor activities (hiking, camping/backpacking, walking, biking, exploring, climbing trees, building snow forts, gardening, etc.) and playing games (board, card, building elaborate train sets, playing pretend, etc). I am also interested in human nature (psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy/spiritual philosophy), and music (djembe drums, piano, learning guitar, etc.)

I have current CPR, First Aid, and Medicine Administration Training certification, and drive my own 4 door car.
