Meet Sarah

I have 8+ years of experience working with children as a House Manager, Family Assistant, Nanny, Preschool Teacher & Assistant and/or a Swim Instructor. Earning two Bachelor of Science Degrees, in Pre-Medical Studies Biology, as well as Psychology with a concentration on Child Development, Behavior Modification and Behavioral Development, I have the skills and education necessary in providing a well rounded up bringing for children of any age. I played soccer and many other sports my entire life, which honed my capabilities in working as a team "player," as well as helps when working with high energy children. I've also worked and volunteered with diagnosed autistic, ADHD, Down syndrome and Special Needs children, between the ages of 4 through 17. I appreciate the outdoors, art, sports, music, and dance. I danced and studied ballet for 17+ years and I also enjoy many other hobbies and interests.
Believing in a strong work ethic, punctuality and assertiveness is a key element to a successful working relationship. I aim to incorporate these ideals into my daily routine, which in turn enables me to be a reliable, trustworthy employee. Engaging with parents (or parent), I bring many new, creative ways in managing a family. Working with children is my passion and I cannot think of anything I'd rather be doing. Adhering to parents beliefs of how their child(ren) should be raised, I strive to provide children with the life skills to become successful adults. This includes, but is not limited to, teaching manners, developing educational and social skills, creating/following families' schedules, as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle (meals, etc). Please message me for my full childcare resume and letters of recommendations, as well as a brief outlook of what being childcare provider means to me.

Hannah B. says:
Sarah worked for our family but in reality became a part of our family! She was professional, diligent, respectful and above all, her passion for working with children (and their parents!) shined through tremendously. She was always prompt in arriving a few minutes early and always offered to stay until my husband and I were "settled in" from the day. Sarah went above and beyond her normal duties, often fixing...
