Reference/Reviews

"Sarah is our current full-time nanny (since 2010). We are a double working executive family and our lives are a bit crazy at times. Sarah has been the stable force throughout the last 2+ years. She has helped us with our twins boys since they were about 20 months old (they turn age 4 soon). Her work ethic is very strong. She is dependable and reliable; always on time and present. Sarah's ability to connect with children is amazing. She has more patience than most. She is not the type of childcare giver who will use the tv as a distraction for the kids. She is also not the type of person who is glued to her phone/texting all day. Sarah is always playing with them, reading with them, swinging with them, and is using every opportunity to teach them something new. She also has classroom time throughout the day (focusing on preschool lessons) and our boys are well advanced for most 3 year olds. They are clearly her priority at every point in the day. I can't say enough great things about her. Our boys love Ms. Sarah and so do we!! She has been a wonderful part of our family and an incredible partner to help guide our children through day to day and critical milestones. It will certainly be very tough to move the boys from Sarah's care to K4 in the fall of 2013 but it will be slightly easier knowing that Sarah will be helping to support another family as she has ours." -- Mrs. L

"Sarah was on time and great with my son and nephew. She engaged them with activities and came prepared with music and books. Both kids warmed to her quickly and the three year old was still talking about how great she was the next day." -- Mrs. G.

 

 "Sarah was wonderful! She was prompt, very sweet and very professional. My daughter was very comfortable with her as soon as she walked in the house and asked if she was coming back when she woke up the next morning! Will definitely use her again!" -- Mrs. P.

 

“Sarah is an expert child care provider. It is very hard to find someone who is great with children, yet also professional, but she is a star on both fronts. She has always been punctual, reliable, and responsive. Sarah brings books to keep my son busy or they always do outside activities. No parking in front of the TV! She takes time to play and listen, learning about each child as an individual. Sarah's gentle demeanor has worked wonders getting my very active son to sleep, which no one else can do. I feel completely comfortable when he is in her care and he also loves spending time with her." -- Mrs. B

 

“Sarah is a great caregiver and our son just adored her. She was always on time and would bring books with her so that she could expose him to books he had not seen before. She was so patient and caring with him. My husband and I would highly recommend her. You will be lucky to have her care for your child."--Mrs. K
