Sara’s Bio

Hello,
My name is Sara. I've taken care of kids in various manners since I was 14 years old. Now being 29 and having my own little one who turns 6 in May, my feelings towards children have never changed. I love taking care of every age for any length of time. Each age and every age brings different joys.
I have babysat for kids from infanthood all the way up to about age 10/11. I have worked in a daycare and also worked at Kumon for about 2 years where I helped tutor kids with math and english skills of from age 3 up to age 15.
Within my own son and his asthma, motion sickness, and allergies (food and seasonal/animal), I can tell you there's probably not anything that I haven't taken care of before.  Even when kids get messy or sick, diapers (both cloth or disposable) and kids getting sick doesn't even scare me or bother me at all. It only makes me want to clean up and be by their side to help them feel better.
Come join me for a great time everyday with laughs, smiles, and learning while we play. I'll provide great life lessons (such as sharing, caring, manners, and educational learning), great nutritional value, and lots and lots of time playing with toys, puzzles and/or games along with the great personal attention that's difficult for facilities to offer. I am available for working hours between 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. with possibilities of before and after those hours. I've always loved kids and I am eager to take care of your little ones. Rates are negotiable. Please e-mail me to come see what I am all about! :)
Please let me know if you have any questions!
-Sara
