With that being said, our August 2015 Company-Wide Teacher of the Month is, Lauren Kwiatkowski!! Miss Lauren is an infant educator from Colorado Springs, Colorado!
Program Director, Blake Skinner, had the following to say about Lauren, “Miss Lauren is one of our outstanding infant teachers who has grown into her role as a nurturing, compassionate, and caring teacher that everyone absolutely adores. The bond between her and the families and babies is truly genuine. Miss Lauren is originally from the Denver area and has worked at various preschool programs with children ranging from infants to pre-kindergarten. We are so lucky to have you as a part of our Little Sunshine’s Playhouse family.”
Lauren began working with children while she was in high school as a nanny. After this experience, she realized how much she enjoyed her time spent with the kiddos and decided to make a career out of it!
Lauren has been working in Colorado Springs for over a year and her love for the program grows daily! She adores the way her entire team gets along and how it feels as if they are a big family! She is also enchanted by the entire building and how it seems like it is right out of a fairytale.
While working with infants, Lauren really enjoys watching them grow and the changes they go through daily. She is truly appreciative that she gets to mold these young minds and teach them new things every day!
Her favorite curriculum theme has been Rainforests and Desert Enrichment, because she was able to teach all about the jungle and the children loved making jungle animals.
Outside of work Lauren enjoys doing anything outside, from fishing, to hiking and taking walks, she is a fan of anything outdoorsy!
