The Work of the Child is Play

As Childcare Providers and parents, we believe childhood is magical. Therefore, we fight vehemently to keep it so- especially in a world where children grow up way too fast. This is a place for parents. This is a place for providers. So, if your work is children, then your place is here.
The Playground Chronicles Big Latch On

Big Latch On Host

We have a huge passion for giving children the best start, and providing parents with the support they need to give the best they can to their children. Along with the team through the Breastfeeding World project, we host Central Indiana's Big Latch On.

Providing Childcare Professionals the Information They Need

Running a childcare business takes more than a love of children. It takes patience and savy and lots of information. It can be overwhelming, and you're not alone. Take it from the professionals who have been there.

Lauren Lewis

Lauren Lewis is no stranger to early childhood development, having spent over 10 years in the childcare industry. She's the wife of a travel geek, mother of two vivacious children, and has an uncanny talent for trailing lost things behind her a la Hansel and Gretel. Her varied background in writing, child development, marketing, and enthusiasm for mess making provides the perfect foundation for The Playground Chronicles. Her life is full of busy, crazy, and LOUD. It's full of love and hope, ups and downs. And coffee, always lots of coffee. But she wouldn't have it any other way.
