Our three boys enjoyed hanging out with Jenn. She was kind, attentive, and fun!
Jen was punctual, great with the kids!
Jen was wonderful. Very sweet.
Jen is responsible, responsive and easy to communicate/coordinate with. Most importantly, she is a patient and fun companion for our 3 year-old son. She is the best babysitter we've found: cannot recommend her highly enough!
I had a last minute request, seeking babysitters for a one night event, Jen promptly replied with availability. She contacted me in the form I sent in the email, which is a rarity with other requests I've sent through Private Message. We settled on date, time, and location for our one day trip to Waltham. Jen arrived on time, got acquainted, and she started her care of my 3 kids immediately, even though I was in the vicinity until I had to leave. Jen gave my kids a great night with pool at the hotel and put them to bed as instructed. The next day, the kids said they really liked her and that she is a great babysitter, asking if we'd see her again. We live in the Midwest and rarely have a chance to return to the Boston area, but we would most certainly contact Jen again.
