Lauren Kelley, Executive Director
 
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.
