Meet Lara

I am currently a professional working mother of a 6 year old girl. I have a very well-adjusted daughter and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education. I currently work at the University of Texas. I'm taking on additional childcare for two reasons: 1) Kids need high quality care and there is not enough of it! and, 2) I'm working toward saving for some big expenses such as travel and real estate. I can come to you, however, I also have a great kid friendly home in central Austin with a trampoline and treehouse in the back and kids visit frequently. I have experience working in high schools, elementary schools and a 15+ year career in education as a counselor. I believe in safety, fun, interactive activities, and patience when it comes to caring for children. I am an oldest sibling and have been taking care Read more of kids since I was a teenager. I am happy to help during the week, weekends, or for extended care for families, hoping there is flexibility and at times it may include my own child.
