Hi everyone, my name is Sarah and I am 25 years old. I have been a professional Childcare Teacher in Massachusetts for the past 8 years and I am looking for a long term (a year or two commitment) full time nanny position starting late September. I currently live in Medford. A little bit of my history: I was a full time infant teacher and absolutely loved the experience. I'm also a part time online student pursing to get my associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. I speak English and Portuguese (Portugal) fluently. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I'm also Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Teacher certified through the state of Massachusetts (EEC). I'm a non-smoker as well as have a clean background check and driving record. I don't have any nanny experience but I have plenty of childcare experience. I've worked with children from 3 months to 5 years old. Look forward to hearing from you!

Sarah was very nice when we interviewed her over the phone. We did not hire Sarah because she had no nanny experience but I definitely would recommend her to join your family. I can tell she really loves children, especially infants. However we did mention to Sarah we would be contacting her to babysit soon maybe on a weekend. I hope she really finds the right family. She seems very caring and loves what she does and that's taking care of children. Good luck Sarah!

The Preschool Social Academy offers a professionally designed, thematic curriculum; complete with lesson plans, assessments, portfolios and newsletters for parents to use as a guide.

Children learn through hands on play and structured activities in our well organized learning centers. Our classroom is organized into "learning environments." These are the places within our classroom where the children can find the toys and materials related by theme, interest, and skills. These activities and toys can be used independently by the children, socially with others, or with teacher direction, to reinforce and enrich skills and concepts they need. Learning environments are an excellent way to individualize the curriculum to meet the varying needs of young children.

PSA has won first place in the Best Of Winchester Guide 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015!!

After attending an open house to meet all of the teachers, viewing each classroom, and filling out and turning in our application with a small application fee, we were so pleased to be accepted! The process was simple! My son enjoyed his time at PSA! We loved all of the outside time, fun theme related activities and interactions with teachers! My son especially loved the special activities planned for each day, especially the face painting and having a lemonade stand! It is great that they have their own kitchen and chef! I loved how my son got to try new healthy foods and how it saved me time that would have been used to pack one! Also seeing his friends eating the same healthy lunch helped my picky eater try more! I would definately recommend this school to anyone looking for a fun learning experience!

The team is extremely organized, professional, and everyone genuinely cares about each child and family who is a part of the community to ensure amazing care and learning. Mercantile has all of the resources of a national KinderCare brand, but they bring their own local flavor that makes them unique and personal. 110% recommend! Talking specifics: The center directors are incredible - excellent communication, organized, fair, and great leaders for their team. You can tell they love what they do they really work to make you feel comfortable so you can focus on work while your child is in their care. The teachers are true gems - they are patient, listen and adjust to needs of your child and genuinely care and love the kids. We have met some amazing people and love knowing our child has developed under their guidance and support! The facility is bright, convenient, clean, and secure - The space is just full of warmth and personality. They have room for strollers (which is a nice feature not all centers in the city are able to accommodate), and they really utilize their location in the city (walks to parks, see the seals at the aquarium, the greenway/sprinklers in the summer, etc). They also have awesome hours which gives some nice flexibility. The program is comprehensive - they develop tons of fun activities and an engaging curriculum to help your child learn and develop. They keep them busy and the kids love it! They also have an app so you can get updates and photos throughout the day which is really nice. Overall, they pay attention to all the little stuff that just adds up to make you feel comfortable and great about sending your child here. 10/10!
