Lauren’s Bio

I'm a fun-loving, educated, responsible and experienced sitter. I currently work part-time in a nursery and child care center and am looking to offer my time and skills to local families. With 10 years experience working as a child-care center teacher, I have led classrooms with children of all ages, and have also worked more casually as a babysitter for over two decades. Significantly, I'm also the blessed Aunt of four -- both are sets of twins -- 1st graders, a boy and a girl, whom I've been fortunate to help care for since they were born, and my nieces, born February 2016.

While working as your babysitter, my first priority is children's safety; your children are precious and my job is to protect them while you are away. But it's also important to have fun. I love games, reading, outdoor nature walks, crafts, music, and art -- I spent a year teaching art classes and hosting art birthday parties in the greater Austin area and love doing art projects. But I also equally love sports, and am used to regularly jumping in to play soccer, basketball, and other outside games, as well as Xbox and the like. My philosophy is to listen to kids, get to know their likes, and be there to make sure they're comfortable.

In the past, Sittercity.com has been an excellent resource for connecting me with families who need experienced child care providers. I do have a day job, but am looking to use my evenings and weekends to help local families find a sitter they can trust, one who has previous training and experience, whether it's for a one-time, occasional, or regular need.

If you're looking for a responsible, experienced, and positive person to watch your children, please do contact me and let's talk about how we can help each other out!

My son was immediately comfortable with Lauren and so were we. She did a great job juggling a toddler, the dogs and a little bit of housekeeping. I look forward to having her come back.

Provider's Response

Thanks, Nicole, I sincerely appreciate your words. It was a wonderful, comfortable experience, and I hope we can help each other out again in the future!

Refused to provide information to complete background check:( after wasted time with calling references. If you can't provide information for our own third party background screen there could be something to hide. We want the up most safe person to care for our children

- Shauna L.

Provider's Response

I am sorry that this family felt compelled to leave me a poor review without ever having met me let alone worked with me. First, I would like to make clear that I have nothing to hide. A background check was completed on this site. As I indicated in my letter to this family, I was uncomfortable directly providing them with my social security number and other personal information over email without ever meeting them. I did suggest an alternative, requested that we meet for coffee first and set up an interview before going ahead with a third-party check. Of course I understand this family's need to find a safe person; I would have liked to have been given the same understanding of my desire to protect my identity. I feel I was unfairly judged.

Lauren was great. She watched my almost 2 year old for most of a day. They had a picnic lunch outside, went for a stroller walk, and more. And she even kept notes on what they did. I will definitely call her again.
