Joy is a fantastic person and babysitter! Our kids just love her. She is professional i.e. she is on time and has never backed out of a job she has committed to. But she is also loving and fun! She plays board games with my girls and they have great time together. She is really like a second grandma:)

Loves dogs, kind, available short notice!

We needed a sitter for our 10 month old for tonight with just a few (~7) hours notice. She was prompt, very sweet and we came home to our three small dogs curled up on the couch with her. We are fortunate to have found Joy and it was great to have such a kind, experienced person who loves babies and dogs available on such short notice! :)

A wonderful babysitter

After our scheduled sitter was a no call no show, my husband and I called Joy! She was able to help us on extreme short notice, and made it to our house in 20 minutes! Not only that, she took wonderful care of our children. Our son wasn't very excited that we were leaving, and Joy connected with him, and he wasn't so sad anymore. He couldn't wait to tell me all the fun they had. He had a great time, and cannot wait to play with Joy again.

My experiance with Joy T.

I would not recommend hiring Joy, she worked with my family for a while and our relationship ended very abruptly. She was supposed to watch my boys until Saturday night at 5:30, she told me she had accepted another babysitting job for the evening. And asked to take my kids to downtown Denver to pick up little boy. After telling her I did not feel comfortable, she decided to go pick up another babysitter and leave my kids in the care of another person until I got home. Joy did not call to discuss this with me, and it was my surprise when I got home. She also purchased a nanny pass for the Childrens Museum, which I paid her half of the Friday before she quit. And she refused to reimburse me any money towards the pass, since my child only used it once. If you have any questions regarding Joy please feel free to contact me, Courtney 303.810.9942 She also was supposed to take my kids to do fun things on a daily basis, but would take them to run personal errands on a constant basis. I would not recommend hiring Joy.

Provider's Response

Courtney was recently arrested for her second Dui and had to soend a month away from her two sons while incarcerated. The behavior of her two sons deteriorated during this period even as Coutney and her mother asked me to take on extra shifts. I have worked for Coutney for seven months even though she told me she has never kept a sitter for more than 5 months. Courtney smokes. Has two large dogs that her kids are allergic to and has kept library books that I checked out for her kids. Courtney allows her 3 and 6 year old boys to watch hours and hours of TV daily including programs Like Sponge Bob which is Inappropriate for children their age and has produced inappropriate behaviors especially from the three year old. Each Saturday I took the boys to play at playgrounds swimming at the YMCA using my membership and to the library and park. I am an excellent professional nanny with ten families I routinely sit for. I can provide as many excellent references as you care to consider from families who appreciate a nanny who provides alternative activities rather than parking the kids in front of the TV. Thanks. Joy
