Lauren's Description

Hi, I'm a postgraduate student at the University of Melbourne. I'm technically 'local' but have lived and studied overseas for the better part of 2 decades.

I love babies and kids, and though I'm not a professional caregiver, I am an eldest sibling and a very hands-on aunt of 14 nieces and nephews (at last count), and have taken the kids when my family members needed to work or travel. I've been a volunteer at the creche and children's church for a total of about 8 years between 2001 and 2015 and done some babysitting for the neighbour's kids (some who are now off to college..!).

My dynamic with kids is gentle and kindly. They generally see me as a peer because I'm also kid-sized and have the luxury of time and patience to do the activities they enjoy and listen to what they have to say. I don't do particularly well playing in a tough or strict role, and will try to reason with behaviours that should change and ignore tantrums.

I'm happy to help out with homework, cleaning up (vacuuming/ sweeping/mopping/doing dishes, drying and putting them away) and laundry (hanging up/taking down/folding clothes), and can make sandwiches, toast and cereal, but am not much of a cook.

Much of the rest of my time is spent at Uni library ploughing through research papers and travelling.
