    • or at the birth, if you are interested in having Siblings as a part of your birth plan.

"After staying home with my children for nearly a year I was nervous about going back to work and having them miss me. I also did not want my older child to have to leave the preschool she'd been in for several months in order to attend daycare. I was so happy that Amanda was able to be my children's nanny for the first 6 months after I started back to work. She was flexible in setting up the drop off and pick up arrangements until we figured out what worked best for everyone and was able to get my daughter from preschool every day so that she could finish the year with her friends. Both children loved all the outings they were able to do with Amanda. Now that they've transitioned to day camp and daycare they both miss her. She made our family's transition into having two working parents as easy as it could possibly have been!"

"Amanda cared for our children for four years and has demonstrated a great level of reliability and professionalism.​

I had a rough start shortly after I gave birth to my son as my family lives 8,000 miles away and none of my family members could be present during and after my birth. Not only did she help us care for our 3 month old son, but she also helped with tasks around the house to make our lives less stressful. Our family needed someone who could be flexible yet knew how to structure time well. Amanda fit perfectly into this category. She always showed up on time and communicated any changes in advance.​

Amanda cared for our daughter when she was 11 months old. In the beginning our daughter would cry during drop off. Amanda was always very patient and gentle with her. After a few days, the drop off process was tear-free and my daughter loved being around her.

Both of our children love Amanda because she can relate with them and she understands the importance of introducing children to a variety of play and learning tools like painting, dancing, music, and gardening. We are very inspired by her active lifestyle as well. She has been riding her bicycle for as long as we've known her.

With her experience, dedication, and hard work, I would highly recommend Amanda to work for your family."- Lucky K
