Laura was absolutely wonderful with our 15 month old daughter! She followed all of the instructions that we left behind. When we arrived home our daughter was fast asleep and all of her toys put away. Laura was very prompt on arrival and had excellent communication texting us back while we were out if we wanted to check in on things. We would definitely use Laura again and certainly recommend her!
