We moved to Illinois and don't have the luxury of having family near by. Jan has watched our daughter multiple times now and we love her. My daughter gets so excited when we tell her Jan is coming to take care of her. She is trustworthy, personable, and hard working. She is worth every penny you pay. She helps my daughter clean her room during her visit and also helps around the house which is a plus for a working mom like me. We highly recommend her for child care because you can be at ease knowing your child is in good hands when you're gone.
