Description of service

Our childcare provider is a mother of another infant that cares for ours in her home; her baby is her third child, so she has a lot of experience in raising infants. She provides care for our son six days a week, from 8 am to 6 pm. She has been taking care of him for four months now and in her care, he has gone from a very introverted, bump on a log to an outgoing, mobile and very vocal toddler. I would attribute this change 100% to her care and my son's interaction with her son. She takes our infant everywhere: to the mall, to the beach, to restaurants and we feel completely safe whenever she is out with him.

Review of Service

I feel as if I have been very lucky when comparing myself to other people's childcare experiences. I couldn't ask for anything more. I feel that I have a healthier baby, both physically and mental because of the care he gets from her.


I guess the moral of the story here is that you get what you pay for. I'm not sure if I could find someone who would provide such perfect care for my son at this quality and quantity of time for this price.
