Karabo is engaging and fun. My kids loved her positive energy and fun spirit. She cared for each of my kids, ages 0-6 without a problem. She knew how to walk the line of discipline and fun very well and I trusted her with my kids! She is a good driver also, which was a big help! - Lizzie
We absolutely love Allison. She quickly became a part of family. Allison has a very mellow, go with the flow attitude and was flexible with our unpredictable work schedules. She was always on time and available. Most importantly she adored our children and always engaged in fun/creative activities. She is kind, caring, respectful and excellent with kids. - Brittany
I can not recommend Allison more highly! She is absolutely fantastic. She is our full time nanny for our four month old baby girl. She is trained in early childhood development, is incredibly reliable, and is flexible as needed. Most importantly, she is joy to have around our house and our daughter loves her....please feel free to reach out to me for a reference. - Jennifer
