Sarah E. - Seeking Work in Wasilla

Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Hello my name is Sarah. I have worked with children for over ten years, both as a babysitter and a paid city employee. Throughout high school and college I happily spent my time as a camp counselor, lifeguard and after-school care provider. A normal day usually consisted of 10-14 children within my care for 8 hours. However, even with such large groups, I was able to get to know each child's own interests and personalities. I can happily say that I have never run into a past camper at the grocery store and not known their name! With each year of care, I shared many experiences that were fun for myself, the children and their parents. I developed wonderful connections with families that have continued to last well beyond those summer and school months.

Although I have never been officially a nanny, I have grown up my whole life being the go-to babysitter for all my family and friends. I am the first grandchild of a large family, so I'm always surrounded by kids. In my house alone there are four other kids ranging from 2 years old to 12 so I have experience nannying all ages.
