Hello everyone :) My name is Lauren and I'm 24 years old. I am currently employed as an infant teacher at a local child care center in Longmont. While I love my job, I believe that I am better suited as a nanny. Through my child care experience and early childhood education, I am finding the value of continuity, consistency, and attachment in a young child's life. I believe that these needs are much better supported in a home environment with a caretaker the child can grow to trust and feel safe with. With these new found values and beliefs, here I am on my new journey as a nanny! My philosophy for child care is pretty simple- Giving a child a stable, warm, loving environment allows them to flourish physically, emotionally, and cognitively. I believe that children mirror those around them that they feel value their worth. I hope to be a positive mirror that will contribute to their self-esteem. I believe in the importance of fostering the whole child- all aspects of development (physical, emotional, cognitive) and utilize this in my practice. I have a total of 3 years professional experience working with infants, toddlers, and school-age children. I also have worked as both a short-term nanny and babysitter. I am currently in the process of obtaining 6 credits in Early Childhood Education through Front Range Community College (Will complete by Jan 2016) I am also enrolled in the EQIT (Expanding Quality Infant Training) series through Boulder County which will qualify me as a Infant Nursery Supervisor. Please ask to see my resume for more detail!
