Monica pays close attention to children's needs and really works with the parents to help kids achieve their best. I appreciated her insight, patience and care. I trust her unconditionally, not merely to watch my children but as a participant in their growth process. Monica is thoughtful, kind and honest. It has been an absolute joy having her help us. She is, in essence, part of the family. - Amma

She is excellent with kids, she is passionate and very responsible with her work. During the time she worked with us, we never had a problem or a misunderstanding. She definitely helps us during the hard times during the pandemic. I found her great with kids because she doesn’t just babysit them but also she is able to teach them in a didactic and funny way. Highly recommended! - Ricardo
