Meet Laurie

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

My experience includes many years raising babies and children, volunteering in schools, homeschooling early learning years, and volunteering in schools, and professional positions at the elementary levels in special ed, and alternative education at the middle and high school ages. I thrive at assuring that children will be and feel safe, nurtured, and comfortable. I offer experience with what activities are appropriate at each stage of development. There will be fun and creativity provided, along with time in nature, outdoor play, nurturing interests and exploration. I speak calmly and with patience, while listening carefully. I will support the parenting approaches desired, with consistency. Because I understand what it takes to keep children, home, work, pets -- all of it going and managed each day -- I will pitch in and take on extra needs (meal prep, etc). All ages have unique, individual and special needs and qualities. I am ready Read more to provide what is most important to you for your child. I'm comfortable on the floor playing, encouraging early learning, and making sure there are times for using imaginations, having healthy snacks, rest times, homework finished, and most certainly laughter and fun. If desired, I'd love to being some my "Magic Bag", which can include a few of my favorite children's books, and perhaps a couple of simple (and approved by you) surprises for your child(ren). I hope you will be in touch, to learn more about me. I am ready to be there for you, taking care of the most important treasures you have -- your child(ren). ~ Laurie V. / P.S. Mary Poppins truly does live in NH :)
