Rachael was wonderful. An easy evening and, more importantly, a great report from the kids (who asked to have her back).

Rachel was very nice. Arrived on time. Was patient with my annoying dogs. My kids liked her right away and wanted to show her their rooms. I was working upstairs and could hear them laughing and having fun the whole time. She also wasn't afraid to gently correct my daughter for being mean or biting, which I fully welcomed! Will definitely hire her again!

Rachael was awesome! Our 11 month old is going through a real "I only want mommy and daddy phase," so he was rather grumpy with her, but she handled it like a pro and was super positive about the experience. Thank you Rachael!!

Racheal was AMAZING!!! She emailed me and called me to understand our family/shedule prior to arriving well in advance. She picked up my older daughter from preschool having never met her before and dropped of the tuition check for me. The preschool actually called me to tell me what a seamless transition it was. She was great with my 6 month old baby girl also and easily put both girls to bed. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Rachael has been watching my 3 & 5 year old kids for the past 2 weeks. We all absolutely adore her. She's so nice and the kids really look forward to seeing her every day. She was able to step into our daily routine without needing a lot of direction. She's always on time and flexible about hours. She's been giving the kids tons of craft activities, taking them to the conservatory, feeding them and getting them to their various schools and activities with no trouble. And best of all she's been able to be super fun and nice but also patient when it comes to the kids acting out as they do once they get to know someone. Even our crazy dog loves her:) She's a real catch!
