WHAT PARENTS and EMPLOYERS SAY
“I supervised Savannah and other counselors with our summer day camp program for ages 3 to high school age kids. She is very patient and in particular the kids ages 3-8 just loved her. She had great ideas for fun activities and always made sure the children washed their hands and were safe and well supervised. She took great care to adhere to our COVID safety protocols that were new for that summer. She really cares about working with children in a caring and supportive way.” - Maria A.
I work closely with Savannah as a supervisor at a children's before & after school program in Arvada. We do before and after school programs and we work with children ages 5 to 14. Savannah's role is to ensure the safety of the children while providing them with enriching activities. Some of her most positive skills in her work with children are positivity and understanding, and children are comfortable and engaged with her. She is very soft spoken and very kind with children. The morning before school program hours are early starting at 6:30 to 7 am. Savannah is reliable and follows through on her work schedule. I would definitely recommend her to work with children and families." - Sasha T.
