I hired Andrea to watch my son this weekend and she did a great job. She communicated with me throughout the evening to let me know how things were going, she was on time, and took great care of my son. I highly recommend her!

Andrea was wonderful with my 3 children. She really engages with them and does more than the average sitter. My daughter didn’t want her to leave. 10/10 would hire again

Andrea is very patient and caring with my children, always on time and highly flexible. She is one of the most reliable and flexible childcare providers I have had a pleasure to work with. Knowing that I can count on her in times of need gives me a piece of mind, and I really appreciate her dedication and commitment to meeting my childcare needs, even with a last-minute or short advance notice. I highly recommend her services!

Ms Andrea was great with my 12 year old daughter. They played board games and watched tv while I was out. She was relatable and professional.

On time, very polite. My kids ages are 6, 9, and 12 and each of them said she was great. She played with them, told jokes and they really enjoyed her babysitting them.

Andrea is a very proactive babysitter. She messaged ahead to find out about the kids then brought toys and activities along for them to enjoy. She arrived early and was quick to engage the kids and treat them like people. While we were on our date, she sent videos and pictures of the kids. When we got back, Andrea was out front keeping the baby calm and had gotten our oldest ready and put her to bed - she was sound asleep.

Andrea has watched my son twice now and does. A great job. She is on the floor playing with him, takes him outside with toys and on walks.

All three of my kids like Andrea. I was nervous at first because my 2 year old had never been left with a non family member, but it wasn't necessary because she had a great time. My son was especially happy because she helped him dig up some awesome worms!

Andrea was great! Her genuine joy shows. Oscar had a great time with her: she engaged him and interacted with him the entire time. I felt safe leaving him with her, and she sent us pictures while we were away. We will definitely call her again. Thanks Andrea!

My boys just love ms. Andrea. She is great about getting to their level and playing while building skills like vocab, fine motor and even potty training. Don't know what we would have done with out her. All I have to tell my 3 year old is ms. Andrea is coming and he lights up. Great about asking how you want things done and very on top of any task. If she baby sits for you, you will be in luck, for she is the best.

Andrea is a great babysitter. I could tell right away that she was there for the kids. She would rather they be engaged in activities and board games instead of being glued to the TV all night. Would recommend her to anyone.

Andrea was very easy to work with and open to my many interview questions. Our 19-month old was in great spirits when we arrived home. We will be working with her again and recommend her to anyone.

Andrea was a great babysitter! She was very good with our children and she was very fun and my kids loved her! She even did arts and crafts and taught them how to spell. We're definitely hiring her again.

Our son Marshal had lots of fun with Andrea! She brought board games and the like with her, which shows her dedication to taking care of children. He liked her a lot, and would love to have her be his babysitter again! I absolutely recommend her.

Andrea did a great job with my two high energy kids. She played games, read books, and had them clean up afterwards. She even came prepared with her own toys so the kids would be engaged for the night. My kids had a lot of fun and I will hire her next time for sure!

Andrea is not the type of babysitter who just watches your child. She interacts and even brings activities. My son was excited for her to come the second time she watched him.

Very reliable and professional, Andrea has been very helpful to me multiple times. She's also a hit with the kids: she keeps them active and engaged, usually arriving with a toy or activity. Highly recommended.
