Melinda watched my friend's and my boy for a night in hotel room during our trip to Vegas. We were very comfortable leaving our kids with her for the night in a new place for us. she was awesome kids loved her. She involved the boys in activities, she made dinner for them, and put them in bed. and she was informing us that whats happening in the room every now and then thru text. I highly recommed her and I would prefer her to watch my kids next time when I am in vegas. Bhawna B

Melinda watched our two girls (2&4 year old) on a weekend trip to Vegas. She was very friendly right away and got the girls talking and involved. In the morning our 4 year old asked if Melinda could babysit them again the next time we go to Vegas! I consider that a glowing recommendation from the source! Melinda was also on-time, cooked them dinner, and was considerate of any special needs we might have. 5 Stars!

Melinda was so kind and caring, and my boys loved her! She was very communicative, and was very open to ideas to take care of the boys. I appreciated her listening to what I wanted her to do to make things work, and also her independence in making my two year old happy and comfortable. I would absolutely call her again, next time I'm in Vegas. She was extremely professional and easy to work with!

Melinda was wonderful! My kiddos loved her and even my 2.5 year old who usually takes a while to warm up, took to her right away. Melinda is an excellent communicator and I highly recommend her for your childcare needs!

We had Melinda watch our 10 week three nights in LV while on business. She was great! Was always prompt and punctual! Treated our daughter like her own. Always texted us updates during the evening. I trust her completely with our child. Hire her!

Melinda has watched our 1 year old son a couple of times and she is great with him. He can be shy around strangers and Melinda does a great job of making him comfortable and allowing us to get out the door. She is very professional and provided great references so that we could feel confident leaving our son with her.
