Hi, I am Laura Nielsen, your lead TLC teacher. I have twin 9 year old boys, a 17 year old daughter and 2 Labradors (one is retired Army). I served 26 years in the Army as a licensed veterinary technician and I have a Master’s in Business. Boring!!!! I was volunteering at church and realized how much I loved spending time with littles and sharing my love for the Lord. A position opened up and I was thrilled to work full time with these precious gifts from God, what a treasure.  Thank you for allowing me to spend time with your children, it is the highlight of my day!

Hello! My name is Barbara Peterson, I am a military wife and mom of two. I live in Pinehurst with my husband and our daughters, Maddie (12) and Lexi (10). We have two dogs (Luna and Niko), a bunny (Clover), two guinea pigs (Shadow and Oreo), a hamster (Nugget) and copious amounts of fish! My husband and I are both originally from Connecticut, where we met and where our oldest daughter was born. We have lived in Pinehurst for 9 years now, prior to that we lived in Savannah, GA for 3 years, where my youngest daughter was born. I am also a certified yoga instructor and work part time at a studio in Southern Pines. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I love practicing yoga, gardening, reading and paddle boarding. While my original education and career path, prior to marriage and children, was in the legal field, our unpredictable military lifestyle led me to find an alternate path that suited the needs of our family. My love of nurturing children began when I started working for (and then later owned) a pre and post natal fitness group called Fit4Mom, that allowed mothers to exercise with their little ones. I spent years caring for and helping children learn through play while guiding their moms through workout routines. Once my own children were of school age, I started working at their preschool which only fostered my love of children. I’ve spent 3 years teaching preschool and 2 years in early elementary education. While I truly enjoyed early elementary, I realized my heart lies in working with the littles. I am so excited to be a part of this program and look forward to helping and watching your child learn, play and grow. Thank you in advance for sharing them with me!
Peace, love and light
~Ms. Barb
