"Just wanted to thank you for this service you offer and for attracting such wonderful families. I am so grateful for the many opportunities I get to give and receive love. This is so much more than just a job!" -Yecenia Miranda (Wondersitter)
"Jodie was fantastic! Thank you!"
"Also, some feedback : we used Megan Workman earlier in the week and she was so awesome"
"Also, I want to say we had an AMAZING experience with Yecenia today; she was absolutely fabulous. She came early and took immediately to Lily, and took great care of Lily for 8 hours today! Nap and all! Big stars to her." Brenna
"Jana was wonderful last week, btw! Wanted to let you know. Really great."
"She's the best sitter we've ever dealt with at Wondersitter. Her positivity radiates."
"Thank you! We had a great experience with Jacqueline, and we hope to use her again!"
"Alyse was great yesterday. She was right on time and brought us some sun flowers for our house. She did a great job with the baby, and then at the end of the day refused to take any money from us. We had gone slightly over the 4 hours, but she wouldn't take any payment. We were very happy with her as a sitter and for being so honest and straight forward about the mistake. Thank you for working to make this all right for us and we will be using Wondersitter again in the future."
"Just wanted to let you know that Katie Ann was so great. It makes life so much easier to be able to have someone trustworthy and calm and fun come to take care of Emil. Thank goodness you started this business!!"
"I feel like we've won the lottery or something, finding your service."
"Jen was just lovely. She was really sweet with Kira - we were really glad to have her. I appreciate you taking the care to address the issues I had with the other sitters. It's clear that you are motivated to have only the best people working as Wondersitters - it shows both in the quality of almost every sitter we've used (which has been quite a few now!) and in the way you manage the customer service side of things. I really appreciate it."
"Thank you! Emma was wonderful - our girls had a blast with her."
"Thanks! Loving Lindsey. She is awesome."
"Lindsay was great, by the way. I love you guys. I tell everyone you are amazing!"
"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful Rachel was with our little girl yesterday. I've had a good feeling overall about my experience with Wondersitters, but Rachel was something special. I came home to a happy home, with a giggling baby and a dog that had clearly fallen in love (a rarity for our pound puppy). It's been quite hard for me to get used to leaving Kira behind while I go into work, but yesterday I had such a great feeling about the love and care Rachel had provided while I was away. It made all the difference in the world for this tired working mama!"
"I just wanted to let you know how much we love having Shannon come and babysit for our son. He is not the quickest to warm up to new people, but by her second day with us, he handed me my shoes, opened the door, and said "bye bye mama!" Clearly, she made quite an impression!"
"I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how great Olivia was last week. I'd originally scheduled her to watch my daughter for two days because our nanny couldn't start until July and I was returning to work the last week of June. Unfortunately, my mother went into the hospital on Wednesday morning & that changed everything. Olivia was very sympathetic and flexible - offering to arrive earlier and stay later. I really felt that Marlo was in good hands."
"Just wanted to thank you guys for making this past Saturday a memorable one for my son. Found myself on the west coast for a 4-hour business trip and decided to bring my 4-year old son with me. He's a big baseball fan, and I couldn't pass up the chance to check off another ballpark on his list of baseball parks to visit. Casey M. showed up on time for an 8am-12pm shift watching him while I attended my meeting. She kept him thoroughly entertained, and even bought him a toy and a souvenir without any expectation of being reimbursed for those items. He had a blast, and we were able to drive out to Oakland that evening for an A's game, complete with one of the better fireworks shows I've ever seen. Huge thanks to Casey for helping us out, on a holiday weekend no less, and for allowing my son and I to share yet another wonderful experience together!"
"Hey, I just want to say how very happy I am with your service and how much I like the sitters. Thank you!"
"I just wanted to let you know that we had a very positive experience with one of your sitters. Amanda Averill went above and beyond her babysitting duties while babysitting for us on 6/14. Not only was our baby very happy around her, our house was cleaner after she left! She cleaned the living room and the kitchen to perfection. Everything was beautiful and tidy! The amazing thing was she didn't even say what she did for us. We just discovered all the little things she did for us one by one as we moved from room to room. We have always had great sitters with your service, but Amanda surprised us with not only making our baby happy, but us happy as well!"
"Hey Rose, my neighbors used Wondersitter the other night for the first time on my recommendation. I was a bit nervous b/c you never know and the next day her kids were raving about their sitter "sam" not Robman, another one. They loved her. Just another good review."
" I hope this the right address for this type of mail. I just wanted to let you know that Mercedes was amazing, and the kids loved her. Please let her know and thank her again for me. We can't wait to use your service again, and I can't wait to recommend Wondersitter at work tomorrow. Thank you and Mercedes both for your time and effort, and I look forward to our next Wondersitter appointment. Have a good night!"
"We had a lovely experience with Nicole. She is a gem and the kids really had a good time with her."
"Great doesn't even begin to cover it!!! You are a lifesaver Rose, and Wondersitter truly lives up to the name. Thank you so much!"
"Leslie was great! Both of my kids were so happy with her! She even got my 2 year old to nap with no problems! And even though I'm sure she had her hands full with my 2 year old and 5 month old, she even found time to do painting with my son. He loved it! And everything was clean and nice when we got back I was very impressed!"
"Lana was very professional and respectful of our home and children. She made me feel very at easy since I was leaving my 8 month old with a sitter for the first time."
"She was really great - Meredith loved her. Will try her again for sure."
"Absolutely. Truly one of the best experiences we've had. She took Caroline outside to play and even picked flowers with her, which they arranged in a little vase for us. So cute. Caroline actually cried when she woke from her nap to find that Megan had left. She is our first choice for the May 6th request I just made. Thanks!"
"It went great! I anticipate choosing the “heart” icon for her on our profile and making her another preferred wondersitter. Thanks so much for your assistance and follow-up."
"She was great - she let my kids express their creativity, and she adjusted the plan to have lunch at the house instead of going out. Wonderful day when it could have been miserable."
"Just a quick note to thank you for being so competent, outgoing, friendly and FUN with the boys! They were so happy this morning telling us about their good time with you....doing legos, playing the piano, doing origami, etc. Blake said, "Mom, Jennifer is my favorite babysitter." I think Pierce and Grant would say something similar. I really appreciate your effort and your good nature. Thank you for being so good at what you do. Hope to see you again soon."
"My boys really liked Nicole after her first babysitting stint and they still do. She has an easiness and likability that comes from her experience with 3 younger siblings that really works for our kids. Thank you!"
"I don't know how you do it, but as usual, Debin was yet another wonderful wondersitter. Thanks for always giving us such great gals for our girls."
"I was really happy with Leah. She's a great addition to your team! Thanks!"
"This was only one brief visit, and the kids went to bed about an hour into the evening. so my feedback is limited. But they definitely liked her and asked if she could come back. She was very sweet and immediately engaged the kids when she entered the house. She left the place in great condition, including doing a bunch of dished that we used to prepare dinner for the kids. I would definitely recommend her."
"While we are often very happy with our wondersitters, Loren is definitely a keeper. She is delightful, courteous and great with the kids. It is always great when the sitter cleans up after dinner, and she went the extra step to wash a few things that were in the sink when she arrived. The boys love her and I certainly will request her again."
"Nicole has a genuine warm friendly and child-friendly way about her that my boys responded very well too."
"I just wanted to let you know that Mercedes was fantastic. Beyond fantastic. Our daughter was immediately at ease with her (and she isn't always with sitters) - and since I work from home, I could hear them giggling and playing all afternoon. It was delightful to have her in our home. I couldn't be more thrilled. Thank you so much!"
"My son (age 11) asked for me to book David again on the following evening! We had no plans to go out, but our son told us to make some so he could hang out with David."
"Brooke was very sweet and I could tell my baby really liked her. I would definitely hire her again!"
"She did a great job and engaged my son from the moment she walked in the door. I would def request her again. Thanks"
"James (13 mo) has pretty bad separation anxiety; Rebecca handled it very well! We try to leave the house as quickly as possible to avoid prolonging the handoff, so I wasn't able to watch them interact much. She seems great, would be excited to have her babysit again."
"Rose - we just wanted to say how thrilled we ALL were to see Kimberly on Sunday - -thanks so much for pulling that off, George was in HEAVEN!!"
"Ashley was great! She came up with fun games to do with the kids and they keep requesting that she come back!"
"Thanks so much again for getting us a sitter yesterday! Justina was AMAZING!! My kids loved her:)!"
"Rachel is wonderful! Luke is in heaven :-)and he doesn't have to share her even better!"
" Andrea was WONDERFUL! Loved her energy."
" Debin F. was great. Our 16 month old son settled with her in 15mins. and felt right at home with her. My wife and I felt fully confident leaving our son in her care."
"Genuinely warm and loving with my child. Gave me a detailed report of what my child ate for the day, which was important for me, as we have to track calories for her pediatrician."
"She was able to engage the girls immediately when she arrived, made cookies with them, and everything was clean when I returned. I think that's as good as it gets."
"I had to run an errand that took me longer than expected. I told Jessica I may be late and she was very cool about it. She also took my son out for a walk and bought him a little car from the toy store. He loved it! That was completely unnecessary but a very sweet gesture on her part."
"Kanna was truly WONDERFUL! One of the best! My daughter LOVED HER.... Keep her busy....she's a smarty and will get requested often. I know she's brand new so if you need and other great comments or referrals please don't hesitate to ask. I'll add her to my FAV list on your site right away. "
Thanks, Audra Bert
"We have been very happy to have been able to have Jana watch Anneliese multiple times. These past few weeks have been our first foray into childcare for our daughter, and Jana has put us completely at ease. Jana is friendly and engaging and takes the care of our daughter seriously while making sure Anneliese has lots of fun."
"Hi, Rose - We all really liked Tess! She was so gentle and calm - my children were all wound up when she arrived and she was able to reign them in and get them to bed at a reasonable hour - I don't think I could have done that. Thanks so much - @H"
" Thanks, Rose. Also, the sitter we had today (secured through my share care partner, Caroline Hogan) was wonderful. She was full of energy when I picked up Zach - which is tough when watching two 2-year olds all day. She really seemed to have handled the boys very well. We'd definitely love to try her again next time she is free."
"Whooo, thanks for sending Casey! but we certainly loved Connie on Friday too :) You're just the best!"
"Just wanted to let you know that Abby was amazing- I really liked her & she was soo great with the boys!
I hope to use her again in the future."
" . . . You always send me great people and you were right- we loooooooved Ethan!!!"
"Mercedes was amazing again. She simply has "the touch" with kids. My shy 3 1/2 year old kept getting caught talking with her even though he really tried hard not to. She automatically started singing to soothe my 10 1/2 month old when she started to cry...which is exactly what works for her. I said it last time and I'll say it again...she's a gem! So many are nice, capable and trustworthy but only a few really have the true instinct. Thank you!"
"Karen was fantastic! She played outside, painted, baked and read with Jagger and tallulah and fed them breakfast and lunch! They said that they "loved the day" with Karen! Thanks so much - @h"
"Chelsea was over-the-top fantastic yesterday. We loved her! Rose, I don't know how you screen for people, but somehow every time they are amazing. I keep fearing that the odds will change but they never do. Don't know how you do it, but THANK YOU for screening so well... and for existing as a business!"
"Hi, Rose - We loved Connie! She rolled with the unusual situation and was so conscientious and helpful. Thank you so much again for setting her up for us."
"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful our sitters have been. Ira M. and Anne F. were amazing with the girls. They are so good (really sweet) at interacting with them and keeping to the schedules we've given for them."
"Thank you, so much for all of your help with the babysitting arrangements. Abby and Marsha were amazing, and my client (we ended up with only one parent) was SO HAPPY!!"
"I just wanted to let you know that Marcella was great with Ava!"
"Your sitters are great. Melinda has such a sunny disposition! My daughter had a fun evening. Thanks."
"My kids absolutely adored Kathryn. Thank you!"
"Just wanted to let you know that Karen was great. My son Zach liked her immediately. She was very friendly and cleaned up all his many (messy) trains after he went to bed, which we really appreciated. Thanks again."
"Nailah was AWESOME, Rose! Thank you!"
"I just wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with your service and with Kristen in particular. She's awesome and my kids love her! My family moved to San Francisco from the East Coast only a few weeks ago and your service has really saved me over the past week. Thank you and I plan on taking advantage of your service quite a bit more in the near future!"
"Meagen was wonderful last Friday! I had never used Wondersitter before, and was really nervous about leaving my children with a complete stranger. If we hadn't had tickets to an event we'd been looking forward to for ages, I would have just cancelled when my regular sitter got sick. I was really relieved when Meagen showed up and I met her in person... I loved that Meagen was a senior, a nursing student at USF, was bubbly, warm, friendly, relaxed & experienced. My 3-year-old was practically shooing me out the door!... I also really appreciated the notes she wrote on the schedule and activities (which made me laugh). I've since recommended Wondersitter to a number of friends and look forward to having Meagen come again (I've just requested her for the end of the month). Now, if only you had a branch on Cape Cod where I am desperately seeking a sitter. . . . Thanks!"
"Thank you. Andrea did a great job! If I'm in SF for biz with the babe I'd use her again."
"By the way, Justina was excellent."
"Just wanted to drop you a note to say Mercedes is a fabulous sitter. She strikes just the right note of play and authority. The kids think she is great. I think she is great. Wow."
"Rose, Caitlin is awesome! I don't know how you find such wonderful people."
"Sharon was fabulous; would highly recommend her!"
"Jenna is great. I'm very happy with her. The kids really like her, and she keeps them active all day. They've been doing lots of fun things. She's easy to work with, and communicates well."
"Thanks, Rose. Briana is really wonderful - we think she's just great!"
"Sara continues to be wonderful. Although it had been some time since my kids saw her, this morning went smoothly and this working mom didn't feel so guilty about making some early morning meetings."
"I just wanted to let you know that Natalie did a great job today. Thanks for all your help."
"I am sending you a quick note to let you know how wonderful we thought Caitlyn was the last few days with our daughter. I find your service invaluable, knowing that I can find quality sitters anytime. Thank you!"
"Thank you!! Jeana was wonderful!! Cooper woke up this morning and was so sad that Jeana wasn’t still there : )"
"I just wanted to let you know how much my partner and i appreciate your service. On the occasions that we've used your sitters, we have been so happy and completely at ease leaving our son with them. They all seem like great people who are sweet and easy to talk. we've recommended your service to all of our friends with children. Thanks."
"I just wanted to pass on my thanks to Stephanie and to the Wondersitter team. Stephanie was early so we could run through everything before heading off for a beautiful dinner. It was great that she was able to come straight to our hotel, and she made sure that we were comfortable with everything before we left. Thanks for organising it - I'll recommend you guys to my friends who happen to be in SF!"
"Thank you. Anyi was fabulous, as expected. You guys are truly a miracle."
"I just wanted you to know Amanda was wonderful! We really liked her!"
"I'm adding Mercedes to my "favorites" list. Sawyer loves her! She's great. I'm not sure how you do it, but you really do find the best!"
"THANK YOU for making my day! Sara was wonderful with both kids, her punctuality, calm demeanor, patience and friendliness with Laila and Logan really put my mind at ease while I needed to attend to work very early this morning."
"Wonderful!! She was SO great! My son loved her and she did such a great job that we can't wait to have her babysit for us again! Thank you!"
"Another great report for liz: she was wonderful with maren, again slightly early so I could get out on time, remembered the routine. Super!"
"Thank you. Elka was wonderful. The kids are so enamored with her -they are already asking when she can come back!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You totally saved me today and Natasha was great with my baby! You guys are the best!"
"I just wanted to let you know that Marie-Claire was WONDERFUL! The kids adored her. My daughter LOVED that she took them to the library and my son totally enjoyed the park. She read to the kids and borrowed books for them to read at the hotel. She always had ideas for activities for them to do and didn't mind going to the store to pick up snacks and meals for the kids."
"I wanted to thank you for all of your help these past two weeks. Meagen and Sharon are both wonderful and responsible sitters. Alex and Rowan truly loved the time they spent together. And it was a relief for me to go to work, knowing they were in such good hands. Thank you!"
"Thank you so much. She was AWESOME. My son (the one I worried about) woke up the next morning (btw..that was the first victory--she got him to bed) and and first thing he said was "Mom, THAT WAS FUN!". After I picked my jaw up off the floor, he asked if she could come again. She was so good (and even worked with a child with Down Syndrome before). We would be thrilled to have her come again. She is a real keeper. We will be using you guys again (and again). My husband is also happy to arrange babysitting for our evenings out, so I will forward the website to him and we will both be booking again very soon."
"Rose – Meaghan was wonderful!!! Thank you."
"I just wanted to say thanks again and let you know that Laura was fantastic. My son liked her very much and was smiling when I got home. Thank you!"
"Just wanted to let you know that it went very, very well with Autumn. We would use her again any time. We have a regular sitter, so don’t need other people that often. But we were very happy with your service. We will use it again as well as recommending it to friends."
