I can't say enough about how wonderful Leah is with our son. Ethan is a very active 6 year old and Leah always has wonderful ideas to keep him active and engaged. She is extremely reliable and my son is always eager to see her. She has made my transition back to full time work so much easier, knowing Ethan isn't just well taken care of, but actually having fun while I am away. Thank you Leah!
