Loren Christian

Loren Christian is the founder and owner of Gotham Kids. With over 30 years of childcare experience in LA and NYC, Loren’s extensive experience has ranged from decades of nannying for various families to teaching kids movement classes. She has spent the past couple of years working as the Hebrew School Assistant Administrator for Hebrew Tabernacle, helping to develop and run the kids programs for the temple’s Hebrew School.

As a NYC mother with 2 kids of her own, Loren has experienced firsthand the need for a neighborhood playspace and the frustration with the lack of affordable year round indoor activities for little ones as well as a physical space where elementary school kids could play afterschool. This opportunity to open Gotham Kids brings together her lifetime of experience to provide the space that kids need to be safe and entertained.
