Meet Sara

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! I'm Sara and I'm a theater kid who grew up to be a theater adult. I'm a member of Actors Equity as well as SAG/AFTRA and I moved to Chicago two years ago from Pittsburgh, PA to pursue my theatrical passions. Aside from coming from a large family I have a plethora of childcare experience.I started young as a mother's helper just keeping the kids out of the mother's hair while she shopped, worked, or what have you. From there I graduated to working as an actual sitter. I would walk the kids home from school, finish homework, make snacks, and play games until the parents were home from work. I also worked on weekends to allow parents to get out for an evening. I would make dinner, create activities and occasionally settle a dispute or two over who got to watch TV. Most recently I was a nanny Read more for a young girl age 5 who loved all things dance, theater, and princess related. While I have worked with kids from all ages my specialty is with 0-6. I went to school for Theatre Arts and have a degree in Theatre Performance. Many of the activities I have my kids do are artistically centered. I love to create dance performances, theater shows, poetry, spoken word, and freestyle music. I believe that creative expression is necessary for development and I use it as a tool to help kids work through frustrations.
