Kyra watched my kids for a summer. The kids had a blast! The summer was filled with games, trips to the park, and walks. She also prepared meals and snacks for them each day. Kyra is very friendly and respectful and we enjoyed getting to know her. - Allie

Annel S. - Seeking Work in Eden Prairie
Annel S.

Annel is an amazing babysitter with my kids! She is so caring and treats them as her own. I am not sure what we would do without her when we go out of town. She cooks for them and plays with them the whole time. A lot of babysitters just have the kids watch TV or tablet the whole time but not Annel! She is truly an extension of our family and the kids love her. - Braeden
