Laura Schmitt

Gallery14Laura founded Marin Enrichment in 1994 it all began in the downstairs of her Greenbrae home. Opening a school was Laura’s dream ever since her son, Jake who is now 28, went to his first day of preschool. Her children, Jake, Meagan, and Caitlin are all graduates from Marin Enrichment, University of Washington, UC Berkeley, and UCLA respectfully.

Marin Enrichment continued to grow and was moved to The Bacich Campus benefitting our Preschooler’s transition into Kindergarten and elementary school. On this campus Laura was able to open an afterschool program benefitting children of all ages. The joy that Laura brings to campus when she walks in the door creates an atmosphere of warmth, kindness, and love.

Laura is also a teacher outside of the classroom. She ran Cross Country and Track & Field for UC Berkeley and began coaching at Redwood High School 30 years ago. She is a member of the Marin County and Redwood High School athletic hall of Fame with her 50+ MCAL Pennants, 35 top NCS placements, 17 State Championship appearances and her own running accolades. You can catch her running by at Phoenix Lake every morning with daughter and director, Caitlin because there is no better place to hold a staff meeting!
