Dora was great in every way. She was flexible, and ontime. Most importantly, she immediately hit it off with our kids. I highly recommend her.

Dora is great. She plays with my children and pays attention to them. And as an added bonus, the house is always picked up when I get home. She is a great sitter. Tammy

Dora, did an excellent job watching our son. Upon our return, he was happy and it was clear that he enjoyed her company. Dora is a very sweet.

Dora does a great job caring for my kids, and is very reliable and friendly. I was impressed that she brings her own materials for playing with the kids. The kids and I are looking forward to having her over again.

Dora was punctual, the kids just loved her and they really enjoyed their time with her. This was my first outside sitter in 12 years and i'm happy it went this well. I could not have hoped for a better experience.

Dora is an amazing caregiver. I have three children, and one of them is developmentally disabled. Dora finds activities for all the children to participate in. She is always on time and always flexible. We consider her a part of our family. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a sitter.

Dora watches my Son at night 3-4 weekends a month, since February. She is always on-time or early and I never have to worry about if she will be there. It is hard to find a sitter that is willing to work at night and that you can trust. I thank Dora for doing an excellent job each week!

My first time using sittercity and also using a non-family member watch my son. Thank heavens for Dora. She put me at ease right away and I felt comfortable leaving my son with her without any anxiety. I came home to music and singing and what looked like a lot of fun. I look forward to having Dora come spend more time with us in the future.

Dora is absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has a great low-key personality and has lots of artistic and musical interests, which our son warmed up to right away.

Provider's Response

Laurie,Pete and Pj are a great family to work for. Pj is smart and inquisitive. It is a relaxed environment and Laurie was kind enough to give me some new sneakers!

We wanted someone to watch our children (ages 5 and 12, girl and boy) for a night during trips to Baltimore and later DC. Dora was wonderful. After our trip to Baltimore, our kids were counting the days until we went to DC because they were both excited to see Dora again. To me, that is the best review you can give someone caring for your children. Especially children at such different ages and with different interests. Dora took our children out (with our permission), brought activities with her for our children and generally made sure they had fun and were safe and well cared for. I highly recommend Dora.
