My name is Lauren Naeder. I have a 6-year-old son named Anthony. I have been working with children since 2007. I earned my degree in Elementary Education and have completed some courses in Special Education. Early Childhood Education has been my passion, and I believe in the importance of young children receiving an early education to help develop a lifelong love of learning. Three years ago, I started my journey into Montessori education and fell in love with its philosophies.
