Active 53 year old mother of 2 grown daughters (23 and 25). Lived in Newton, Needham, Dedham. Familiar with school systems, activity centers and roads. Routine of structured 9-5 desk job was boring and unfulfilling. I'm friendly, approachable, responsible and energetic. Teach dance, music and movement, crafts, run all types of Birthday parties including designing creative goodie bags. Love to cook, do errands, read, organize clutter, clean, plus... drive a new Honda Accord with perfect driving record. There is nothing relative to childcare and household management I can't handle. I have years of experience, several references and tons of energy. I have a new Honda Accord with perfect driving record.

Dear Families , I am a huge lover of reading and the arts, and grew up in a home filled with both. Here is a bit about me and my previous experience with working with children and families. I am a Bostonian born and bred. I am 31 years old and have an Associates degree in Early Childhood Ed with a Certification infant toddler teaching BA in Psych with a minor in English and am currently pursuing a Masters in Theology. I have extensive experience working with infants and young children. My primary experience is with infants. During my college years i worked off and on (Short term jobs) for different families in the married student housing. Many of those jobs were for families immediately following the birth of a new baby (infant Care). After college i worked for a family during the summer of 06. The family had two children, the youngest was around 19 months and the older one was 3. I am a certified infant/toddler teacher with CPR and First Aid training and I worked for Bright Horizon's in Watertown from 08-10 as an infant teacher. My latest childcare positions were summer 2010- I cared for a infant (baby boy) from April- August. directly following that job i went to work for a close friend after the birth of her first child. To top this off, from March 2010- June 2011 I shared an apartment with a young woman who had an infant whom I helped to co-parent. When I moved in the baby had just turned 1 and when we parted ways the baby was 26months. Since that time I have been continuing to pursue my M.Div degree, and caring for co-students little ones off and on. I am very excited to hear more about yourself and your little one. Sincerely Sarah Robinson

I have baby sat for my neighbors and family friends for up to 7 children at once. The children ranged from 9 months to 11 years old. I was a teachers assistant and tutor for two weeks for the Dedham Middle School TREK program in which I helped out with class activities and labs as well as helping students with summer math and reading assignments. I have also worked with the Town of Dedham's Recreation Department as a camp counselor for two years. The campers ranged from five to fourteen and daily responsibilities included entertaining and watching campers. I had to organize different games to keep kids entertained before and after the lunch break in which parents would come and take their kids for the hour break. It was important to make sure each child was picked up before breaking for lunch.
