Meet Laura

I have been babysitting for over 10 years. I am a college graduate from Gonzaga University. I am First Aid Certified and have Infant and Child CPR Certification. I have worked at a daycare center as a Toddler Teacher as well as with children ranging from two months to six years. I have been a nanny for three consecutive summers for two different families in the Seattle area. I am comfortable with infants.

I have been babysitting for over 10 years. I am a college graduate from Gonzaga University. I am First Aid Certified and have Infant and Child CPR Certification. I have worked at a daycare center as a Toddler Teacher as well as with children ranging from two months to six years. I have been a nanny for three consecutive summers for two different families in the Seattle area. I am comfortable with infants. I have cared for two different families several days a week with children ages 2 through 10. I have coordinated and communicated with parents to successfully develop skills and maintained a schedule equipped with fun filled activities and planned outings. I have taught children moral values and principles to enhance growth potential. As a Toddler Teacher for three years, I prepared weekly schedules for toddlers ages 1.5 to 3 that involved fun and educational activities. I was responsible for creating stimulating mind and hands-on activities that focused on child's growth development and motor skills and built strong relationships with parents to inform child's progress, social strengths and weaknesses, as well as specific improvement goals and updates on performance. I provided daily activity sheets that listed participation in planned activities and various notes. As a camp counselor, I volunteered and dedicated an entire summer as a Counselor in Training at a Christian Camp. I assisted the counselor with a weekly group of seven campers; slept in the cabin with campers, ran arts and crafts, prepared Bible studies, and motivated campers to participate in other activities that the camp offered (such as sport-related activities and various outdoor activities).

Jacki K. says:
Laura has been a very responsible and caring nanny to our girls. She is always upbeat, positive and eager to work. In addition to being our Nanny, Laura was also our house manager and kept things clean and organized. I will use her again when the time comes for us to need a Nanny.

Sarah J. says:
Unfortunately, our experience with Laura was short. After accepting our position and making a commitment, she continued to look for other work without our knowledge and accepted another position. I was given short notice via email that she would no longer be caring for my children.

Laura M. responds:
This was due to an unfortunate miscommunication that I would love the opportunity to explain.
Sara L. says:
After an excellent phone and face-to-face interview, I have invited Laura for an in-home interview to be our part-time nanny. From all of her recommendations, it seems we have found one of the best, and we hope that she will stay with us as long as possible! You should hire her as your summer nanny, so she can come back to us in the fall. ;)

Laura M. responds:
Thank you so much, Sara! I really look forward to working with you and your precious daughter on a weekly basis. I look forward to meeting your husband and interacting with your daughter in your home environment tomorrow as well :). See you soon!
