Carissa is an outstanding nanny and sitter. She joined us earlier this summer when we were in a very tight spot and I can't imagine what we would have done without her. She has been responsible for full time care for our infant son (he was 3 months when she started) and part time care for our toddler son (22 months when she started). She's energetic, fun, loving, and responsible. Our toddler fell in love with her immediately and our infant is so happy around her. We love that she focuses on age-appropriate developmental games when she is with them; it's a real bonus of her experience and education. We also love how comfortable she is taking them out and about in the city. We could not recommend her more highly. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
