Laura’s Bio

Hi! My name is Laura, I'm 27 years old Philadelphia native and currently live in the East Passyunk neighborhood. I have over 10 years of childcare experience, as a sitter, mother's helper and part-time nanny for kids--boys, girls, from infants to teens. I am upbeat, funny, organized, and responsible, and enjoy cooking and preparing food and of course creative art projects of all kinds. I am happy to be here, or there, and everywhere else the job needs me to be. I have a passion creative expression and genuinely love working with and learning from others.

I earned a BFA in printmaking from Tyler School of Art, where I majored in fine arts, art education and minored in psychology. I have interned and student-taught in the art classrooms of multiple schools in the city. I can help with homework, and I am always up for playing sports/being outside. I also love to cook and bake. My idea of a great sitter/nanny is someone the kids want to hang out with, who can make time fly while parents are out, and ensures safety and fun.

Lastly, I know how to set limits when needed; I remain calm, positive, and constructive in thought when it comes to problem-solving. I thrive on being able to wear many hats and am flexible with learning about and supporting a family’s specific needs.
