We arrived home to a very happy kid, who had even had a nap! Super impressive!!
Thank you so much Dom, we hope to see you again soon.

Dominica was terrific. The boys enjoyed her company a lot and for these two nervous parents out for their first night without kids, she absolutely put us at ease. Thank you!

Maria G .       July 2022

Dominique gave us the peace of mind we needed to leave our girls for the first time with a babysitter. She knew how to handle my 10 month old baby which is not the most open to new people and my highly energetic 3.5 year toddler. She's punctual, respectful, gave us updates through out the day and the house was very nice and tidy. She's great!

Rebecca S .       July 2022

Dom is great! Punctual, attentive and understanding of first time parents, leaving their little one for a few hours.
Thank you, Dom.

Rebecca S .       July 2022

We had a great intro with Dom. She was energetic, engaged, and had a high level of attention to detail. And, our daughter took to her straight away.
We feel very confident to proceed with our next booking.
Thank you.

Daniel T .       May 2022

Dominica was on time, comfortable with our kids, who were a bit shy at first, but warmed up soon. She spent time with them and helped them with bedtime- we came home to two sleeping kids! We will be booking her again soon! Thanks Dominica

Stephanie G .       November 2021

Marie was lovely and reassuring. We felt very comfortable leaving our children with her and hope to use her services again in the future

Viren T .       October 2021

Eliza T .       October 2021

Jac B .       June 2021

Dom was a total superstar with my eight month old baby. Baby is quite clingy at the moment but happily went to Dom who was so lovely with her and easily managed to get her to sleep during the day. Dom also did some dishes / emptied the dishwasher which was unexpected but very kind of her to do. Highly recommend and look forward to booking Dom again.

Kimberly K .       May 2021

Maya W .       December 2020

Dominica arrived early, was friendly and quickly engaged our 20month old son. No issues at all, would happily recommend.

Brodee P .       November 2020

Dominica was excellent! She arrived right on time and followed all of the instructions and routines. My 2.5 yr old can have trouble separating so we asked her to come an hour early so they could play and get to know each other before we had to leave. I could tell my son felt safe and comfortable because he didn’t even care that we were in another room getting ready. They played so nicely and she followed all of his interests. When we came home he was happy and spoke fondly of Dominica for the rest of the day. I’d recommend her to anyone!

Antoine R .       December 2020

Dominica was great. We don't book babysitters for our 3 girls (4 years and younger) very often but we saw right away that she knew what she was doing and the kids loved spending a bit of time with her before going to bed.

Josh E .       November 2020

Dominica is lovely. She had a great time with our two little ones and can highly recommend her. :-D

As first time parents having our first outing, it was fabulous having Dominica look after our bub. She clearly knows her way around babies and quickly put both us and our little girl at ease. Highly recommend!

Michelle B .       February 2020

Dominica got along well with our 8 & 12 year old. She was friendly and professional. I would use her again and recommend her to friends.

Angie M .       January 2020

Dominica was amazing with my 6 month old baby! He warmed to her really quickly and I just could tell he was having a great time with her. She has a genuine care for children and a lovely personality. She also helped me tidying up my kitchen, folding and putting away my babies clean clothes. Thank you for helping this mamá out Dominica, we really loved having you around :)
