Sonia is very untrustworthy. We hired her a few times towards the end of 2019 to care for our 5-month old baby. We then made arrangements with her to hire her for all of 2020, one day a week. We specifically asked her if there was any chance her schedule might change, and she said it would not. Then, the day before she is set to work for us on a regular basis, my husband checked in with her to confirm. It was then that she told us that she had a school conflict and could not work for us. This was a ONE DAY NOTICE on a long-term commitment. We're now left scrambling and desperate to find a one-day-per-week person. Would she have told us if we hadn't texted her the day before? Did it not occur to her to tell us as soon as she knew that she had a conflict? This is a shocking lack of integrity for a child care provider. Do not hire this woman.

We scheduled a face to face interview, for which my husband took time off work to be present, and she didn't show up. I messaged her twice during the day to confirm and she didn't even bother replying - I wouldn't have minded a response just saying "sorry I changed my mind/I'm not interested", but this behavior showed lack of professionalism in my opinion.
