Here's What Families Have Shared About Their Experiences
"Carol was an amazing influence in our family's life - my daughter was with her either part or full time from 12 weeks - 4 years old. She is super loving, caring, kind, patient, and an incredible model to have as a parent. I learned a lot from her that still influences my parenting now. She provides lots of outside time, trips to the park, crafts, healthy food, and most of all a peaceful nurturing environment. My daughter has always adored her, I trust her completely and highly recommend her!"
Andrea Dixon (Her child was at the CrawlSpace from 3 months-4 years)
I'm glad Sara is back in the caregiver business! Before Ava was born, Sara took care of our three-year-old son Tristan in the afternoons. He was as comfortable with her as if he were one of her children. Sara is warm, creative, observant, conscientious, enterprising and utterly trustworthy. Her whole family is very dear to us, and I'm happy for the families that will get to know her through the Crawlspace.
Wendy Baucom (One of Sara's nanny clients)
"Carol is gifted with young children, warm and caring, attentive and engaged, and just a wonderful person. Our daughter really thrived in her care and enjoyed the mix of ages (infants through age 5)."
Tania Hanan (Her child was at the CrawlSpace at ages 2-3)
Sara took care of our kids for years, and was nothing short of incredible. She was everything we wanted in a caregiver - caring, reliable, smart, and creative – and we’d highly recommend her services to anyone looking.
Aaron Lubeck (Parent of two children for whom Sara provided nanny services)
"While pregnant with [our first chld], my husband and I explored many child care options, including both in-home daycares and larger centers. At every place, we felt confident that our child would be safe and cared for and generally happy. When I visited Carol's house, however, I found a place where my child would be loved as part of the family and nurtured in a way that was profoundly influenced by Carol's years of experience, her educational background, her patient disposition, and her
boundless love for young children. Over the years, I became more and more grateful to have Carol in our lives for the way that she nurtured not only our children, but also my husband and me as parents."
Nicole Schramm-Sapyta (Parent of 2 children at the CrawlSpace from ages 2 months-2 years and 3 months-2 years
"Sara has provided exceptional afterschool care, summer camp and occasional babysitting for our son and daughter (now ages 9 and 6) off and on for the past 4 years. She is always reliable, responsible, gentle-spirited, patient and so easy to work with. Sara is also super creative! We love that she goes above and beyond with interesting activities and arts and crafts. Our kids love her! We'd employ Sara full-time if we could!"
Laurie Williamson (Parent of two children for whom Sara provided nanny services)
"Carol is the best communicator I know. She consistently and skillfully taught our children the art of verbal conflict resolution. She has very successfully worked with parents and their children to provide the best environment for developing minds. Time and again she demonstrates an uncanny ability to understand each child’s needs and creativity in finding ways to meet their needs while shepherding them toward independence.
[Carol] has demonstrated her ability to sustain work on prolonged projects and to meet her personal goals despite the considerable obstacles presented by home-schooling her children while running a child-care business from her home. She has been reliable beyond what her parent clients have any reasonable right to expect."
Bernadette Chasteen (Parent of 2 children at the CrawlSpace from ages 2-5 and 6 weeks)
"Sara took care of my 2.5 year old in our home and she was a delight to work with. Most importantly, Sara had the energy and interest to keep up with our very active kid and he loved her. She engaged his passions and helped him realize them. Almost as important for any busy parent, Sara was on time, always communicated with us, and was reliable and easy to work with. Any kids in her daycare are lucky indeed!"
Sandra Chapman Osterkatz (Parent of a 2 year old child for whom Sara provided care)
