Its been a long pandemic, I am fully vaccinated and boosted. I am your weekend backup to help you reset after a long week of being a superhero aka parent. I began working with children at the age of 15. I was a Counselor in Training at a sleep away camp. The following two years I worked as a Camp Counselor at the same camp. I began babysitting at the age of 18. I have worked with multiple families with multiple children. I currently work at a Dance Studio as the manager and instructor. The Dance Studio mostly caters to children between the ages of 2 through 14. I am currently certified in First Aid/CPR/AED for both Adult and Pediatric. My experience makes me qualified but my personality is why I have such a great relationship with the kids. Babysitting has always been fun for me. Children are true little Read more sponges that soak up everything. The things they say or do always manage to make my day brighter. Being younger allows me to truly enjoy my time with families. I love to go outside with kids play a little soccer, baseball, or basketball. Kids always love that I can teach them some dance moves. Although usually most kids just prefer me to read to them. I try to give every character in a book their own voice. I haven't had a bad experience sitting. The occasional meltdown is expected and I'm prepared to handle whatever is thrown mine way. References, a resume and a professional background check are available upon request.

Lauren was kind and easygoing. Activities could have been more directed and she did not clean up dishes or toys.

Lauren arrived on time and was happy to stay late when we got caught in traffic on our way back home. Definitely will use her again.

Lauren was great! Very friendly, eager to engage with our 20 month old, but totally respectful of his need to warm up. :)

She's friendly, confident and has years of experience that helps her make a young one (and us parents) feel comfortable. She played a cute peek a boo game that helped our one year old come out of his shell a little when she first arrived. We know our son is in great hands with Lauren and look forward to having her back again and again!

This was the second time that Lauren has babysat for us. As soon as Lauren walked in, my daughter flew into her arms to hug her. We look forward to seeing her again soon!

Lauren was great! Punctual. Calm. Read to our older child and put her to bed, no problem. She seemed comfortable with a baby in the home too. Professional.

Lauren arrived early, fed my son almost all of his dinner (an achievement), and read him a dozen stories before bed. She's an ideal babysitter.
