Hey, I hope all is well. My name is Sarah , I'm 20 years old. People would describe me as outgoing, always smiling or laughing, and very kind. I have a huge family with lots of cousins and siblings. And I noticed that I had a interested and heart for babysitting when I was volunteering in my church nursery. I landed a job as a camp counselor and photographer the summer I graduated from highschool. And that experience taught me a lot when it came to responsibility and watching over children. I learned that I love seeing kids smile, happy and just brining them into a calm and learning environment! I landed a job at YMCA Child Development Center as an assistant teacher of ages between infants thru 2 years old. And the course of that job, I changed diapers , prepared food, set up lesson plans, supervised nap times and interacted with parents and fellow teachers.

Years of childcare experience8 yrs of experience

I'm April & am visiting from Hawaii this summer. I believe when you enjoy what you do for a living, you don't work a day in your life. Being a nanny is enjoyable for me. I like to have fun & learn something new each day. Kids always took a liking to me. The children are our future & I try my best to be a positive influence, role model & teacher. I lead by example, teach facts of life & how to be a good citizen. Throughout high school & my first 2 years of college, I volunteered to mentor 4th & 5th graders for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of America. My late husband & I didn't have children together, but I helped raise his little sister, Maeve 18, his daughter, Raven 18, & my God daughter, Kyla 16. I was quite busy during my college years attending school full time, working full time & helping dress, feed, & drop off /pick up the girls from daycare. I was the neighborhood babysitter & was well liked & sought out because all the kids loved me & I always kept a clean house. I figured being a parent, working & raising kids took lots of time & energy so if I could assist by doing basic chores, then I'd gladly pitch in. Besides, my mama always taught me to leave things better than I found them. Since it's summer time, I'd love to take the kids hiking, playground, swimming, library, put golfing, roller skating, the movies, etc. I think keeping children active is the best route. Parents love to come home to a clean house & kids that are fed, washed up & all tuckered out, ready for bed. Whatever the issue or task, I can handle it; guaranteed. At my age, I've learned a thing or two & am wise enough to know, I still have lots to learn. I will enjoy spending this summer watching kids grow, learning new things & creating fun memories. I'm looking forward to an adventurous summer & sharing it with new friends! Mahalo🌺
