Linda was a full time nanny for our son Braden for the last two months. The only reason that she is no longer with us is because I quit my job. Our experience with Linda was amazing; she was always very active and caring with our son and he took to her immediately. She was very punctual and flexible, coming early and staying late whenever we asked. She is very warm, friendly and easy to talk to. She followed all my ridiculous instructions and always offered to do more. It was very hard for us to say good-bye to Linda and have already called upon her to babysit for us twice! I am happy to be a formal reference should you like to discuss more.

Linda has been a great overnight and weekend sitter for our infant son. She is extremely responsive and professional, and she truly loves taking care of kids. Our son loves having her around, and we welcome having someone else around who gives good advice and is so trustworthy. I would recommend her for any child-care setting.

Linda has taken care of our 3 year old son on a full-time basis for two years. She is an amazing caretaker, and she is extremely reliable and punctual. Now that our son is 3, we are sending him to preschool, so she will not be with us after this week. Linda is an excellent teacher, and she has helped our son excel in his vocabulary development and letter recognition. He is extremely attached to her, and I know that we will continue to call upon her to babysit when she is available. Linda is a people person, and she is very good about setting up playdates with other nannies/moms to ensure that our son socializes with other children. She is also very active with our son, and they go on daily excursions to the park, museum, or other children's activities in the area. Most importantly, I NEVER worry when I leave my child with Linda. I know that she will care for him as if he were her own. I highly recommend Linda to care for your child/ren, and I would be happy to speak with you further if you have any questions. We are very sad to see her go.

Linda had been a terrific babysitter for my 4 year old son. She watches him regularly one day per week and keeps him busy with drawing, games and imaginitive play. She engages in activities with him which is very important to me. I have been home on occasion while she has been working, and can hear she has great conversation and fun with my son. She is also reliable, prompt and respectful. Our family is lucky to have found her.

Linda was able to help out with t my 13 mo boy for about 1 month, and the only reason she left is because I couldn't give her the hours she's looking for and match the pay. For the short time I had her, she is wonderful. I work from home and do a lot of conference calls, and she took the baby out immediately without me asking her to leave (which I had to do with few of my other sitters). She has great connections with other nannies in south loop area, and takes my son out to playdates all the time. She is reliable and responsible, she was never late and she helped out w/ cleaning when my son was asleep. I definitely recommend her.

Linda has taken care of my 6mth old son 2-3 days a week since he was 8 weeks old. Being a first-time Mom, Linda understood right away our overprotective nature. She was always very careful with him, making sure that his feedings/naps/play times were met according to schedule/preferences and was really flexible when we changed it from day to day. I'm always impressed at how punctual Linda is and how she doesn't mind when I'm a few minutes late at the end of the day. The most important quality has been Linda's ability to bond with my son. He now looks forward to seeing her, loves the sounds of her voice, and enjoys their playtime. Knowing that our son is with someone who cares about him has been deeply comforting for us as new parents. Allison & Max

Linda has babysat for our 3 year son, since he was 3 months old. Our son absolutely adores her. She's patient, interactive and extremely responsible for his well being. We couldn't recommend a better babysitter than Linda.

Linda has been babysitting our now one-year-old daughter since she was about 6 months old and we love her! She is very warm and caring easy to get along with, and extremely responsible and organized.
Though our daughter is at that stage where she is experiencing separation anxiety whenever I leave, Linda does a great job of soothing and distracting her, and as I am getting ready to go I always hear them playing and laughing.
I also love that Linda know what milestones our daughter should be hitting and encouraged her to crawl, walk, talk, drink out of a sippy cup, etc. The fact that she has her own children and grandchildren makes me feel even more at ease. We totally trust Linda and I never worry when we leave the house. Linda does whatever it takes to make our child happy and I highly recommend her!

Linda has been our eight month old son's nanny for the last two months. We are happy with how she has worked out. She's very fun and affectionate with our son and he always has a big smile when she arrives in the morning. She's also been very punctual and flexible regarding the hours we need her to work. I have no hesitations in recommending Linda.
