Hello! I am currently a SAHM looking for families near Broad Ripple/Glendale area who need a sitter on a regular basis, part time, at my home or yours. I am 35 and married. My son (b Nov 2014) often accompanies me. My experience includes several long term childcare jobs, work at a traditional daycare center and at Girl Scout Camp, substitute teaching, kids arts & crafts workshops at art centers and after-school programs, and 4yrs volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters. My home has a large playroom with many toys, a pack-n-play and other baby gear, and video monitoring for nap time. We try to be as organic/non-toxic/chemical-free as we can (no lawn/bug treatments) and are cloth diaper, breastfeeding, and baby-wearing friendly but those are not requirements. I strive to continue your parenting philosophy when caring for your child - this includes discipline and religious views. We also have pets Read more (2 cats, 5 chickens, and a fish.) Under my care, your child will enjoy music, crafts, games, outdoor play, with minimal to no TV. We also like outings to the park or Museum. I prefer 3 or less kids at once in order to provide one-on-one attention. At the end of the day you will receive a detailed log of your child's activities. Please contact me for references.

I have to say, Sarah is amazing. I had my hesitations about leaving my son with someone I found on sittercity, but I'm so lucky to have found Sarah. She was so great with my 10 month and put me at easy the minute we met. I would highly recommend booking Sarah as I would leave my son with her again in a heartbeat knowing that he would be safe, loved, and well cared for.

Sarah has been caring for our 5 month old daughter since she was 6 weeks old. She is fantastic with her and our daughter is always happy to see her. Sarah does as many activities as you can with a baby and has a list of everything they did at the end of the day. Sarah is also very vigilant and observant -- even voicing concerns about allergies. I would highly recommend Sarah and have her watch my daughter anytime.

Sarah is amazing! She has been watching my 3.5 and 1 year old consistently for almost 8 mos. My children LOVE her. She finds the perfect balance of being strict with them while still maintaining their trust and affection. She plans activities for each day to ensure the kids are entertained. They have gone on field trips to the museum (she is the first non-family member that has driven my kids), made seasonal crafts, taken walks to the park, etc. She adheres to our nap schedule and feeds them healthy snacks. When in doubt she always asks permission (ie: feed them sweets, introduce them to her chickens, etc.). I even get a summary at the end of each day! I highly recommend Sarah and would be happy to be a reference for her.

Sarah showed up on time and jumped in-even brought along her sister, which was wonderful given the number of children. She straightened up a little bit before leaving. She was kind and kept multiple children entertained and made sure everyone was safe during a home presentation. She was polite and eager to ask for instruction when she first arrived. She communicated quickly when I had requested her availability for the date as well which is appreciated!

Sarah is great. She sits for us every Tuesday for our date night, and has never once failed to show-up as planned. She's very upbeat and engaging with our two daughters (4 and 2). Sarah has been very considerate of our girls, remembering their birthdays and asking permission to bring special treats or various surprises. One the days where one of the girls is reluctant for us to leave, Sarah does a good job of comforting and engaging them as we depart.
