Trinity S. - Seeking Work in Lino Lakes
Trinity S.

Trinity was great with my children and was great at keeping them entertained, engaged, and having fun. She planned fun adventures that were very age appropriate. She helped with many things throughout the house and with being a single mom it was very appreciated. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for great care. - Melissa

Michelle T.

Michelle was a breath of fresh air. My kids really liked being with her every day and I saw their emotional and educational growth while she was with us. I have never felt so confident and at ease as I did when she was with my kids. I didn't have any other good nannies before her. - Larry
