Trustworthy, safe, came prepared to interact with my kids, on time, creative, affirming to my kids. Madison is genuine. - David
Mary was wonderful! My kids (age 2 and 5) warmed to her very quickly. She was kind but firm, full of energy and patience and knew just how to interact with my kids. She was safety conscious and I could see she was observant and attentive. She was on time and reliable and very professional in her communications with me. We all loved her! - Sarah Bohl
Hannah is amazing. She’s been taking care of our special needs girl for almost a year. She’s responsible, and listens well to instructions. I highly recommend her. - Denise
