Sarah’s Bio

I am originally from the state of Maine and have been living in Richmond since 2004 and since 2009 have been watching various children in Richmond, VA ranging in age from new-born to middle school age. I have a B.A. in Psychology (concentration Child Psychology) from Hollins University Class 2000. I graduated in 2011 from VCU with my MBA. I was raised in a home where my mother provided child care services to schoolteachers’ children. Both my parents taught; father is now retired. My mom did daycare so she could be home with us growing up. At the age of 12, I began baby-sitting. While in college, I baby-sat professors' children as well as did part-time nannying for families. Initially out of school, I counseled adults and continued to baby-sit. I have worked as a lead teacher in a nursery school and as a teacher in an after-school program in NOVA. I worked as a membership manager for the Girl Scout Councils in Massachusetts and Virginia. In 2004 I entered into the business world doing accounting/cost accounting/analysis. I like working with children and they seem to enjoy me. I am active in my church Wednesday evenings with Kids Club and once a month Thursdays for adults with disabilities; I volunteer as well with VBS, Kids Track & Field, Nursery and Sunday school. I am reliable, responsible; take childcare and watching children seriously. I devote my time with the children; to the children I am watching. I like to have fun with the children but also do not shy away from being serious when needed. Children seem to 'love' me and I them. I am hands on; do not care much for having children placed in front of TV. I am always looking for ways to teach children while playing with them. Even young babies I sing ABCs, verbalize colors, count, etc. I'm responsible and reliable. I love being outdoors, active in sports, games, crafts, art and reading books etc. I am very knowledgeable with planned activities, teaching basics and strive to have children enjoying themselves while learning as well as behaving and showing respect to one another. I myself am a 'kid at heart'!
