Meet Lauren

Hi I am game-loving 22-year-old, who wants to engage your kids with crafts and fun ideas that will keep them up and about and not just in front of the TV.
I started as a babysitter for 3 boys (ages 4, 7, and 9) when I was in high school, I was always striving to be very involved and always interacted with the kids and had them use their creativity to think up new games.
After graduating high school, I worked for the YMCA as a camp counselor for 3 summers. I supervised up to 18 children at the camp and on field trips. I was in charge of organizing and participating...

Hi I am game-loving 22-year-old, who wants to engage your kids with crafts and fun ideas that will keep them up and about and not just in front of the TV.
I started as a babysitter for 3 boys (ages 4, 7, and 9) when I was in high school, I was always striving to be very involved and always interacted with the kids and had them use their creativity to think up new games.
After graduating high school, I worked for the YMCA as a camp counselor for 3 summers. I supervised up to 18 children at the camp and on field trips. I was in charge of organizing and participating in recreational activities (games and songs) to stimulate the physical, emotional, intellectual and social growth.
I am a graduating senior attending OSU with a Psychology major. I have taken many child focused courses that I feel will help my babysitting skills.
Since I joined Care.com so far, I have worked with two families. The first family I am providing after-school childcare (ages 7, 8, and 12). My duties consist of picking the kids up, helping with homework, making dinner and playing with the kids. For the other family, I am providing occasional evening childcare (ages 7 and 10).
I am looking for summer nanny positions and occasional care.

Liz S. says:
Lauren has babysat on several occasions for my children (ages 7 and 10). She has been engaging with them and they look forward to the time they spend together. She has been reliable in her communication with us and about showing up on time for babysitting. We appreciate the care that she puts into our children and would highly recommend her as a babysitter for others.

Nora C. says:
Lauren is reliable, on-time, kind, and very responsible! My girls LOVED her and can't wait for her to babysit again. She played with them, took them on a picnic, and related to them very well. I would hire her again. She was great. :)

Carolyn B. says:
Lauren has babysat for the B. family for the last 12 weeks and is amazing. She is always on time with an activity in hand for my children to participate in. They cannot wait to stay with her. She helps all my children with their homework and makes dinner for them. She has been a great addition to our family the last 12 weeks!

Shannon H. says:
I highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking for child care. What places her above many other people is Lauren has a such a big heart and is so passionate about working with children now and in her future career plans. She has often displayed parental qualities because she refers to the kids she worked with as "her kids", and has treated them as if they were her own.
