Sara is absolutely delightful! She helps out on occasion, babysitting our now 16 month old daughter. Of course, she is in high demand, so we take what we can get! Would highly recommend Sara to anyone in search of care for their little ones. She's prompt, sweet and attentive!

Sarah began sitting for my twin girls when they were 10 weeks old. She was immediately ready to meet the unique challenges of premature twins. Sarah has a strong understanding of child development. She uses this knowledge to engage the girls in age appropriate and stimulating activities, including singing, reading and tummy time. Sarah is consistently on time. She communicates clearly any concerns that arise when the children are in her care. She remains calm when both girls are crying and hungry at the same time. She is fully capable and confident in completing all child care tasks related to feeding and changing. She also was comfortable administering a heart medication for one of the babies. The girls responded so positively to Sarah. They were safe, well cared for and happy when Sarah was caring for them. I highly recommend Sarah and we hope to continue having her babysit for the girls.

Sara has been our full time nanny for my now 16 month old since he was about 5 months old. She is very reliable, has never called in sick and has only been late once due to bus issues. She takes direction well, is very patient and kind, and most importantly, my son loves her. Over the past year Sara has helped my little one to learn his body parts, some animal sounds, and early words. She also helps with his laundry, dishes, toy cleanup and has worked with me on all the big milestones that happen between from 5 mos on…sleep training, transition to solids, ,etc.. Due to a career change we won't be needing a nanny anymore, but She is a great find and will be a wonderful asset to any family. In fact I have had other neighbors in the area express what a great time it always looks like the two of them are having together, which is nice to hear.

Sara has been our nanny for 4 months and is always on time, takes her work seriously, and flexes her schedule to accommodate our family. She does workbooks with my 5 year old and has really prepared him for school. If it weren't for the fact that he is starting full-day kindergarten, we would keep her as long as she would agree to stay.

We had Sarah babysit for us part time for 3 days. My daughter took a liking to her instantly! In fact she cried the first day when she woke up from her nap and realized Sarah had gone home. Sarah was really good with her, and kept her busy and happy. She even helped out with some of the childrens laundry and dishes which was a huge help! I would definitely recommend her.
