Sarah is very special person. She is bright, responsible, trustworthy, and extremely caring. Taking care of children comes second nature to her. Sarah has loads of experience under her belt; hence, she can confidently handle any situation and is quick to improvise. She is also fun, cheerful, thoughtful and kind all while remaining in control. The kids both love and respect her. She has boundless energy and enthusiasm. She takes initiative to find activities to do with the kids, both at home and in the city. As her attention consistently remains on the children, the kids are always very well supervised, safe and nurtured. Sarah communicates clearly, is open-minded, flexible and easygoing. Her dedication and commitment to do her job is unsurpassed, and she goes above and beyond what is required. Finding excellent childcare is a daunting task, and we were extremely fortunate to find Sarah.

Sarah is an AMAZING caregiver. She can handle multiple children of different ages with ease. Each time she comes to care for my kids, she brings a "bag of tricks" (i.e. a special art project, game or books). She is full of energy and enthusiasm, not to mention intelligent, well-read and pleasure to be around.
She is a real pro. She knows the city and really figures out ways for kids to experience all that is here for them.
In summary, she is the kind of person that could be successful in many professions, but she chooses to work with kids because she loves them, and it shows.

Sarah is fabulous! She babysits for us on a regular basis and is active and engaged with my 2 toddlers (3.5 and 2) at all times. She loves to play with my children on their terms and relates to them easily, but she can be firm when necessary and has the experience to deal with their sometimes difficult temperaments. She is knowledgeable about child development issues, as she is studying in this field. Her experience level and commitment is evident in everything that she does. I recommend her highly.

There should be a new category of nanny/sitter invented for Sarah. Not only are the superlative reviews here accurate, I will add to them that Sarah is, in addition, an amazing counselor for Moms on every topic from how to administer eye drops to a toddler with pinkeye, to what activities are best suited to your child's personality and needs. Sarah anticipates Mom's needs - and gives her support in every way that occurs to her from helping to lug in groceries to surfing the web for nearby free and engaging activities. Sarah is a gem of a person and a miracle of a sitter. These are the words of a first time Mom - eternally grateful for someone like Sarah.
