I've had a wonderful childcare experience for over 10 years and 7 months. My childcare adventure began back in 2001 when my sister, Jennifer who currently lives in Massachusettes asked me to quit my temp job in Boston to be able to help her give full-time care for her newborn son then, Benjamin who is now 16 years of age. I agreed to help during that time, and it's been an adventure since then. After 9 months of helping her out with Benjamin, I decided to find a full-time nanny job in Connecticut. My experience with childcare have ranged from newborn babies to 6 years of age including newborn twins and young children with special needs. The most memorable experience I've had was caring for twin girls, Lauren and Lindsey. I cared for them in 2004 when they were born and stayed with them till they were 6 years of age in 2010. They were premie babies weighing only 3 1/2 lbs but were both strong and healthy. I cared for them full-time and they made me busy for sure. I read to them, played with them, took them for a stroll outside from the very beginning. I helped supervised their transition to solid foods. I also helped get them ready for pre-k. It was wonderful to watch them grow from infancy to toddler years to school age kids. It was fun helping them with soccer practice, running, driving them to lacrosse and watching them learn Taekwando, a form of martial arts! I remember the snow boarding days, that was a lot of fun with the other kids in the neighborhood as well. To this day I stay in touch with the girls, and their parents. They've been such a big part of my life, there were many happy memories I will always remember. I recently visited the family, and found out that the girls are now doing black belt in martial arts. It was a wonderful reunion with the family after a few years of not being able to visit with them.

Amanda P.

Incredibly reliable. Of the 2 years she worked with us, she did not miss 1 day of work, or was ever late to work. To me that is extremely remarkable and to be quite honest, we haven't been able to find someone like that again. Everyday there ready to be with my 2 boys, then 3 boys. Very sweet girl too. Very smart, educated, patient, trustworthy. We love her and will love her forever :) - Lena
