Hello! I am Lauren Kelley. I live in Odenville with my husband Laramie and our two beautiful daughters. We are active members of Calvary Baptist Church and I am a graduate of Auburn University. While attending college I had the privilege of working underneath the director at Auburn Christian Academy for several years. After graduation I took a job as an Event Coordinator at The Club in Birmingham. After 5 years I realized that God had a different plan for my life and he led me back to my original passion, childcare. My goal as Director is to provide a safe and loving environment for your child while teaching them the skills they need to start school and sharing the love of Christ with them daily.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." -Philippians 4:6-7
