Amanda sat for my toddler and my infant this weekend and she was terrific! Prompt, came prepared with activities for my 2 year old, and was so much fun that my daughter is still talking about her.

We had Amanda help us out for a birthday party for our one year old daughter that had both kids and adults. The idea was to have the kids entertained so the adults could enjoy themselves as well.

Amanda did a great job accomplishing that goal for us! She was a pleasure to work with, on time and always had a smile on her face.

Thank you Amanda!

Amanda took care of our 5 month old (teething!) son for 3 weeks and did a wonderful job. She was always on time, always entertained our son and was extremely flexible. I can't say enough good things about Amanda, but perhaps this sums it up best: I had to leave my son with her for 12 hours one day and while I missed him terribly, I knew he was very well cared for and was having a lot of fun with Amanda. She's an absolute gem of a sitter and I wouldn't hesitate to have her sit for us again.

Amanda was amazing! Taking care of 2 toddlers is no easy task. She came totally prepared, activities, arts n crafts. She even read our 7 yr old a bed time story after getting the 2 babies to sleep. I would highly recommend her to every parent!!

We were in a bind for a sitter for our 4 children aged 12, 8, 5, and 3months. My husband had a mandatory work event and we had no one. I posted a job and received applicants immediately Amanda being one of them. I contacted her right away and she got back to me right away. She provide me with references to call and they gave her a great reference. Once she arrived she was greeted by our rather large dog who accepted her immediately and our children warmed up to her right away. She provided a movie for my older children to watch and was even able to talk my two middle children into sharing their blocks (which is an amazing accomplishment for anyone). We checked in a few times and everything was going great. She read a story to my second youngest and was able to get all 4 children to sleep. We came home and the baby was snoring soundly in her crib, all the others were asleep, and even our mastiff was snoring away in the livingroom. I would recommend her to anyone with any age children and large families also. We will use her again in the future. She really has an amazing way with children, is truly caring and knows all the tricks to calm children going through the efficient of a parents night out.

Amanda was great, really friendly and made a real effort with the kids. Amanda is very capable and dedicated to her job. We would certainly use her again and we recommend her highly for young babies and toddlers. Thanks Amanda!

Amanda is amazing! Our kids are friendly, but can balk at caregivers that they meet for the first time. They both were happy and comfortable with Amanda immediately and were cozy in their beds when we came home. (Our kids don't go to sleep that easily). They woke up happy and showed us all the crafts and paintings they did with Amanda. We are very happy to have found Amanda!

Amanda has been our nanny for our 11-month-old daughter since she was 3 months old. She has been a wonderful addition to our family. As new parents, we were clueless, and Amanda's knowledge and experience has been invaluable. She loves our baby as her own, and our baby adores her!
