AMAZING!!!! I booked her for 4 days straight! Its been a rocky road finding a good fit to help with my two toddler sons (1 &2), while I tackle a huge work project, Im at ease knowing Maria is caring for them and have been able to concentrate on work. She is exceptionally engaging with them, she not only reads and plays with them, she takes every opportunity to build and expand their cognitive development. As a former home educator and nanny, I've been looking for someone to meet my nanny karma and in the past two days Maria definitely makes me feel like all the care and diligence I put in during my early twenties care taking children is reciprocated. While the boys naps she makes sure the kitchen and the play area are tidy and is prepared to receive the boys with warmth and a snack when they wake up. I am praying our schedules align once Im back from work travel in Mid-May so I can hire her part-time on a permanent basis.

Maria was on time for an early morning! She was very sweet and my kids had a lot of fun with her!

Maria was great. Our daughter got along with her immediately and they seemed to have a lot of fun together. She was considerate cleaning up dishes and toys. And she left thoughtful notes about food and drink consumed, naps, and activities they did together.
