Competent & Enthusiastic !

Rebecca has been babysitting my 2 and 5 year olds for about 2 months. She has babysat for date-nights and weekend days for extended hours. I feel very comfortable leaving my children in her care. I know they are safe and content while we are away. Rebecca can work with minimal instruction because she knows what children need. My children love her and so do I!

I live in California and came to Miami for a three-day work conference. I brought my 6-month-old son with me and hired Rebecca through SitterCity to care for him at my hotel while I attended the conference. She was amazing! I seriously feel like I hit the Miami nanny jackpot. She was so loving and nurturing with my son, and very proactive and conscientious about my needs as a mom traveling with a baby. She definitely knows how to care for infants, and my son adored her.

While I was working some of my colleagues saw Rebecca at the hotel pushing my son in the stroller and later told me they thought she was his aunt or a family member because she just seemed so good with him and concerned with his welfare. Of course I loved hearing that :)

I ended up extending Rebecca's hours while I was in FL because she was so capable and I felt absolutely secure having her with my baby. If I ever come back to Miami with my boys she'll be the first person I call!

I wish I could bring Rebecca home to California with me to nanny for is permanently! I'd recommend her with absolute confidence for your future child care needs.
