Marlene’s Bio

I am compassionate, caring, loving and will treat them like my own parents. I was taken care of a woman but she had a stroke and was taken back up North with her children. I recently took care of my dad for the last 5 years of his life and this responsibility included: Providing basic care and personal hygiene such as bathing, feeding, grooming and oral care. Ensuring his health and safety . Assisting in conducting daily exercise such as walking, stretching and so forth. Taking vital signs and recording the details. Assisting taking him to all his doctor appointments as well as transporting him to and from the Hospital. Giving proper guidance regarding his medical condition. Giving oral medicine as prescribed by the doctor. Giving him companionship, as well as taking him on regular outings. This consisted of shopping trips, walks, going to restaurants, movies and so forth. As my father’s illness progressed the depth of my responsibilities did as well.   I have been a resident of Boynton, Florida for the last 13 years and can easily travel to whenever it is necessary. I have confidence in the fact that I will not disappoint you, once I am given the opportunity to attest myself. I am dependable, motivated and personable and look forward to showing you my best qualities. You will be given references upon request. Thank you in advance, Please feel free to do a Background check/. Yours Sincerely,  
Marlene

Marlene has been our nanny since our infants were born. She is amazing. I don't know what we would've ever done without her. She cooks all their meals has them on an amazing schedule and takes care of all their laundry and their rooms. She is extremely organized and the most loving and patient woman I have ever met. She takes them to their Playdate and Dr. appointments or anything else we are unable to go to. She was also able to help us on family vacations. We highly highly recommend her. I wish there was an opportunity to give her 10 stars because that's what we would rate her! If you are looking for a nanny who is compassionate, caring, loving, patient, and extremely knowledgeable regarding children, please contact Marlene. Due to a lost job we can no longer employ her but please understand our family is extremely heartbroken over the situation. Our babies call her na-na. She quickly became part of our large family. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

To Whom it May Concern,
Mrs. Marlene has been working for my family for the past 7 months helping taking care of my two children (ages 2 1/2 and 5).
I highly recommend Mrs. Marlene for future employment. She is very pro-active, has a kind-hearted nature, is patient and has a nurturing personality. She goes above and beyond her role as a nanny, running errands, doing light housecleaning, cooking the occasional meal and managing other house aspects. I always feel secure in leaving my children under her care. She is very understanding when working overtime is needed or coming earlier is necessary. She is always punctual and works flexible hours, even during weekends and minor holidays. She transports my children to and from local activities. I believe Mrs. Marlene would be a great employee for you and your family. I have no doubt that she will succeed in any future endeavor and will recommend her with full confidence.
Sincerely,
PPSC

Marlene has been an absolute pleasure to have watching our 6 yr old son. She goes out of her way to not only entertain him but teach him as well. Would recommend to anyone searching.

We loved Marlene!! We were so hesitant to hire a sitter that we didn't know, but decided to give Sitter City a try. Marlene came to our hotel room and babysat our 20 month old son every night of an entire weekend while we were attending a wedding. So if you are in the Delray area and are in need of a sitter for a night or two, I would highly recommend Marlene for the job. She was also very punctual and very attentive to our son's need. Also I especially liked the fact that she left notes of what they did while we were out, i.e. what he ate, played with, time of when he went to sleep and etc.

Highlights: Arrived early, immediately earned the trust of a nervous mother of a 4 month old, kept 1 infant and 4 kids occupied (and extremely happy) for 9 hours. Was highly adaptable. A tremendous pleasure to work with. Very responsive to messages, and arranged a phone interview (I was out of state when I hired her).
Also, and this is a direct quote, according to my 4 year old niece (and this was repeated to me at least 5 times during the next two days), "Marlene was the best babysitter ever!"
Details:

I posted a job (nanny for 4 kids between 3 and 6 and one infant), at my wedding in Delray Beach. Within 12 hours, I had 10 responses, and selected Marlene and one other applicant to interview over the phone. After speaking to Marlene the next morning, I cancelled my other interview.
She showed up early, and got to know the kids during the pre-wedding photo shoot when the parents (my siblings and their spouses) were around, but not always available (because of photos). I was immediately impressed with how at ease my sister in law was, allowing Marlene to watch my 4 month old nephew for the entirety of the shoot, and as far as I can tell, for the whole 9 hours of the event.
The kids were all flower girls and ring bearers, and were running back and forth between the dance floor, their parents, and Marlene, as their energy waxed and waned. The long and short of which, she had to deal with up to 4 exhausted little ones, and an infant, all at the same time. Not only did she cope with this task without pulling her hair out, she kept the kids happy and entertained the whole time!

She was very easy to deal with, very responsive to questions, flexible dealing with a changing assignment, resourceful (she didn't have much in the way of tools to entertain).
5 stars across the board. In the words of my niece, "best babysitter ever"!
