Sarah was amazing! We had been traveling all day and our daughter took to Sarah immediately (which rarely happens). We were staying in a hotel and Sarah was great in keeping our daughter entertained in such a small space. Thanks again for your great service!

Sarah was great with both my 1 year old and 3 year old. My 1 year old has major anxiety when I leave him and he really took to Sarah and seemed to be very comfortable with her. She was great at following schedules and keeping me informed on what was going on. Would definitely use her again.

Sarah was great with my kids. My eldest was super excited to have her and keeps talking about her and wants her here again. My youngest was very comfortable from the beginning which sometimes can be hit or miss! She made us as the parents very comfortable as 100% of the time we use family. We will welcome her again! :)
