Isabel is so incredible! My kids absolutely *loved* being in her care: she is so creative, energetic, caring yet firm, and joyful. Another bonus: Isabel enjoys cooking. She also is reliable and adaptable: always on time and ready for whatever curveball the kids or I threw at her. I cannot recommend Isabel highly enough! - Melissa
