POST A REVIEW
We would love to keep Sara a secret as she was everything that we could have asked for in a babysitter - prompt (arriving early), engaging to our 2 year old and following our instructions to the letter (even cleaning up after dinner and folding clothes away!) We don't often use sitters who are unknown to our child and yet our daughter took to Sara immediately, even helping her to work through her dinner and bedtime routine. We are now looking for reasons to go out more often as our daughter really enjoyed the experience, allowing us to enjoy our night with no worries at home. Fiona G
