Loretta has been with our family since our daughter was 3 months old. Our daughter has grown so much over the last 4 years with Loretta nurturing and caring for her on a daily basis. Unfortunately, we are moving to another city and will not be able to take advantage of Loretta's amazing dedication and commitment. Loretta has taken on the role of mother, grandmother, teacher, disciplinarian, friend, and confidant from the moment our family first met her. When our daughter was an infant, she cared for Adelayde like a nurturing mother, paying attention to every detail and guiding us a new parents along the way. As Adelayde grew and matured, Loretta transformed herself into a loving, caring, yet firm teacher and disciplinarian for Adelayde. Loretta helped instill the manners, behavior, and positive attitude in our daughter that every parent dreams of and hopes for. Loretta’s knowledge of children and the methods to help promote educational advancement has enabled our daughter to be advanced both socially and developmentally, well beyond that of other children her age. Most importantly, to these first time parents, Loretta has brought her wealth of knowledge and experience to assist us as we experienced the trials of parenthood. Her advice, friendship, and love has enabled us to become better parents and people. Loretta is not a sitter, not a daycare provider, and not a nanny. Loretta is family. And Loretta will be family for the rest of our lives.

Loretta took care of our 2 year old son on a part-time basis for 6 months. She connected well with our son in a short period of time. She was reliable and punctual. She loved to sing, read, and get on the floor with our son. We would highly recommend her! Rodica R
