Sarah was AMAZING with my little guy. He was about 1 month old when she started helping with babysitting, and she knew how to soothe him, and care for him with whatever he needed. I never worried once when he was with her! She was kind, gentle, and so sweet with both our son, and us! - Jasmine
Any family would be lucky to have Leslye. She is caring, responsible and just fantastic with kids. Her kind and warm nature meant my daughter immediately connected with her. She was always punctual, helped around the house, took my daughter out and about and I always trusted her. Highly recommend Lesley. We are moving states and we will miss her! - Jodi
Tori is really patient with children. All the children were so happy to be under her guidance which was important for a connection to be established. - Laurie
