Cherika has been wonderful with our boys. She is very responsive and they enjoy having her over as much as we do!

We've been working with Cherika for almost a year. She's always available and my son LOVES her. She feeds him and gets him to bed, which is no easy feat. She's trustworthy, extremely competent, and a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend her.

Cherika babysat for us once. She arrived promptly and had no problems connecting with my 14 month old. I returned home to a happy toddler and had my questions about diaper changes and eating answered to my satisfaction. I would have her sit for us again.

Cherika has worked for us daily as an afternoon babysitter for 2 1/2 months now, and we have been very happy with her work. She has a lovely quiet presence and our children feel very comfortable with her. Cherika is reliable and responsible, she is a hard worker, shows initiative, asks for guidance when needed, and she is committed to doing a good job. She has always been available when I needed extra help, even at the last minute. I recommend her highly.
