Meet Laurie

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification
  • Comfortable with pets

Greetings Families! I can't wait to meet you and your children! I have 13 years of experience teaching and caring for young children, including 5 years teaching students in grades K-3rd in Chicago Public Schools and 4 years caring for infants and toddlers in both early childhood centers and as a full-time nanny for a private family. In addition to my experience, I have two Masters degrees, one in Elementary Education from the University of Chicago, and I am certified in Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED. Currently, I am working as a curriculum manager for an education non-profit and have a very flexible schedule. Ideally, I would love to work with a family on a regular basis where I may foster a meaningful relationship with children and give them some consistency. In all my years teaching and caring for children, I still hold on to a couple simple truths: children thrive when Read more allowed to play, make mistakes, and safely explore their curiosities. My job is to cultivate a loving, respectful relationship with your child(ren), while thoughtfully providing safe, engaging experiences that nurture, protect, and inspire them to reach their fullest potential. Thank you for your interest and consideration. I can't wait to meet you and your children! Sincerely, Laurie Brooks
