Hello Parents :) My name is Sarah and I'm a young-at-heart 40 year old living in Long Beach. I moved to Long Beach in 2018 after spending more than 11 years teaching English in Japan. There, I taught all-ages, with the youngest being 2 year olds in daycare. I also recently completed a 95-hour course in Children's Yoga! Besides yoga and Japanese, I also love arts and crafts and coming up with fun projects to do with kids.

Sarah, was wonderful with my toddler-boy Maximus, she was always on time, always in a good mood and willing to help. I could 100% trust her with my son.

Sarah has been babysitting our two-year-old daughter for the past nine months. She is a wonderful caregiver: reliable, communicative, kind, patient, energetic, and very creative with activities and games. Having worked professionally with children in Japan, she brings a wealth of experience and an open-minded, cross-cultural worldview. Our daughter was a bit late with talking and walking; maybe it’s just a coincidence of timing, but once Sarah started babysitting her, she started making great progress on both fronts. We’ll always be grateful to her for making such a big difference at a crucial time in our daughter’s development, and in the middle of a pandemic no less, when childcare options were limited. Over the past months she has become like a member of the family, and if it weren’t for the fact that we’re relocating, we would want to keep her all to ourselves. I really can’t say enough good things about her, and if her availability fits your needs, you should not hesitate to contact her.
