Lauren Huberty holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development and Teaching, as well as a Masters Degree in Child Development from Michigan State University. Having first experienced the co-op preschool setting during her studies at MSU, Lauren chose to have her own children attend co-op preschool. Prior to teaching at CHUM, Lauren launched a 4-year-old at risk preschool program in Northern Michigan, was the general education preschool teacher in a pilot program in Oxford, MI that mainstreamed special education and community preschool students, and taught Head Start.
After staying home with her own children (two of which are CHUM alumni) for 8 years, Lauren began teaching at CHUM in 2004. The ability to work closely with the parent and child is something Lauren values both professionally and personally.
