Everything was perfect. Jessica arrived on time, the kids loved her and I felt comfortable leaving them in her care. I loved that they send a photo and a bio of the caregiver prior to arriving. We were highly satisfied and would definitely use this company again in the future.

Thank you Marion's Childcare for arranging Delma to watch our daughter this past week. She was terrific with our 11 month old and they got along wonderfully from the moment Delma arrived! I was nervous about our daughter being able to go to sleep without me to put her to bed but I didn't need to worry about a thing! Delma followed our routine and our daughter fell asleep quickly at her normal bedtime each night we were out. I recommend Delma as a caregiver for anyone looking for peace of mind while away from home. Thank you!

Caprice was wonderful. She cared for our child while we attended a wedding and reception. She brought toys - and made our child feel comfortable right away. Caprice texted me often with updates including sweet videos of their walk/adventure on the hotel grounds. Caprice was super flexible with our return time. Gentle and kind nature. Lucky us. She also taught me a dynamite secret. She created a little, cozy sleep nest of pillows and stuffed animals for our child on the large king sized bed in the hotel room. Fantastic service. Thank you.

Dynamite Secret

Cori was outstanding. Our 18 month was sick enough that he'd been to urgent care that morning, but she was unflappable. She arrived, as promised, with a bunch of fun toys -- the stuffed dog and truck were big hits. And, even though I think it wasn't the easiest of evenings for either of them, we were able to attend the wedding of our closest friends confident that our son was in good hands.

But we couldn't of been happier. Caprice just clicked with Chloe. She immediately started playing with Chloe and really took the time to get to know her routines and what all she needed while we were gone. Chloe just loved her and didn't cry one bit while I was away. Caprice took her for walks and even had her asleep when we got back. We were so pleased with Caprice the first night we asked for her a second night!

Hi Amy,

We stayed at the Grand Del Mar over President's week and Caprice came one night to babysit. I just wanted to say how lovely she was. She was very kind, clearly very experienced, and a pleasure to work with.

Thanks so much.

Kind and very experienced

I want to send along the thanks for Hayley's work for us. She had an incredible disposition for caring for Jeffery. This was our first time on vacation with him and he never had an issue with a babysitter before, but being in a hotel seemed to really scare him when we leave and she did an AMAZING job calming him down and being prepared to entertain him. She did a really, really great job. - D.

Hi Amy,

We had the pleasure of having Caprice from Marion's Childcare watch our two-year-old daughter, Olivia, on August 2. Caprice was wonderful! She was very loving, receptive, and bonded with Olivia within seconds. My husband and I were very relieved and were able to enjoy our evening out without worrying about our girl.

We had Nancy M as our daughters' sitter last week while we were staying at the La Costa resort. I was so impressed with her experience and the way she bonded with our two daughters, who are almost 2 and 4. We felt very lucky to have her and it was extremely reassuring to have someone so experienced and gentle-natured taking care of our daughters. Nancy came very prepared and really took an effort in entertaining our children.

Your agency is very lucky to have such a wonderful woman representing your brand and reputation.

Kind regards,

Thanks for Emily! Our kids really liked her. She came prepared with a suitcase of toys. I really recommend her for other parents!

Thank you. J.M.

We spent four nights in San Diego for a seminar and we brought our nine-year-old, super-energetic daughter with us. We found Marion's Childcare online and after reading about a young woman named Abigail L we decided to book her for the three days. We are extremely happy that we did, as our daughter had the best time with Abigail. They played for hours in the hotel pool, and Abigail kept up with our daughter's high energy throughout the day.

Kimberly M was great. She took care of our toddler son at the hotel; showed up on time, kept him busy with toys and even texted us once (not too much!) during the evening to let us know he'd gone to bed and was doing well. Very nice. - SG
