Janet was fantastic! She watched my 10-month-old for the first time today, and I came home to a very happy boy :) She kept me updated throughout the day, took him out for a nice long walk by the lake, and left a detailed log of what they did/how he napped/what he ate, etc. Will definitely have her back

Janet was wonderful with our two kids (3yr & 7mo)! She jumped right in and played with our youngest while gently getting our shy 3 year old to warm up. She played, fed them dinner, gave baths, and put them to bed. We’d welcome Janet again! She’s great with kids, knowledgeable about child care, punctual, and very friendly.

Janet was prompt and very nice! We had to cancel when she arrived because my youngest child was sick with a very high fever, but we will definitely reach out again due to how flexible, nice, prompt, and professional Janet was about the entire experience.

Our toddler is not used to being left with a babysitter and experiences a lot of separation anxiety. Janet has sat for our son twice and her warm disposition has put our child at ease when he's with her. We are lucky to have found her!

She was late, no warning, no apologies. Other than that, she was good. But I have a hard time rebooking someone who's late on their first sitting unless I'm in a pinch.
