My family used Meredith as an occasional sitter for our 1 to 2 year old daughter until we moved out-of-state. Meredith was responsive, punctual, personable, and terrific with our daughter. We are sad to no longer be working with her!

Meredith was great with my 1.5 yr old and our friend's 14 month old. My little usually follows me around acting sad before I leave, but Meredith was so engaging and friendly from the start that he instantly took to her and was not worried at all about us leaving. She easily handled lunch, naps, dinner and bedtime. Definitely a natural with children, and look forward to booking her again.

Meredith was great! My baby slept the whole time but she was on time, friendly and asked if she could do anything around the house while he was sleeping. Would definitely book her again!

Meredith was great! Very good with our two year old. We moved recently and our house was still in boxes, Meredith was very understanding and accommodating.

Meredith was great with the kids. Split the morning up nicely, doing some homework for a bit before taking the kids to the park and finishing up with board games. Kids had a blast and we'll definitely have her back again soon!
