Hi Amy,
I just wanted to write and thank you for your help in providing a caregiver for my mom and Aidan (my grandson). We enjoyed Ann very much. She was very professional, friendly, and provided enjoyable companionship for my mom. Ann was a real lifesaver during my daughter's wedding activities.

Childcare & Eldercare at Humphrey’s San Diego

Hi Amy!
I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how fantastic Jackie Lewis was! She arrived at our room with a bag full of toys for the girls and immediately started playing with them. The girls liked her instantly and they barely even fussed when we left the room. It was so nice to be able to relax at the wedding and know that the girls were being well taken care of. She was fabulous!

Babysitting at the Estancia La Jolla

Hey Amy,
I have meant to email you for a couple of weeks! I am sure you know this, but I just want you to now what a great babysitter Carly was to our children! She was kind, fun, entertaining and in control of them! It was wonderful for us to have such a good sitter away from our home!
Thank you so much,
Eliza Wilson

Babysitters at the Grand Del Mar

Just a note to let you know are very pleased we were with Joy and the services of your company. Our kids had a great time and from the moment she arrived we felt very comfortable leaving our children with her. She sent us a text mid-way through the evening, just to let us know everything was going well.

The next day, when our daughter bought a Koala bear at the zoo, she named it "Joy"!

Please express our thanks to her again.

Manchester Grand Hyatt Childcare

Hi Amy,
We are home after our great visit to San Diego and wanted to let you know how much we loved Shanna! Our six year old woke up a few days ago and the first thing she said was how much she missed Shanna. Both girls had so much fun with her. Shanna's extra little touches, like sending photos, really went above and beyond the call of duty. Shanna surpassed our expectations and made our vacation memorable for everyone in the family.

Hi Amy. We worked with Jen P for the past three days and I wanted to let you know how delighted we were with her. She is the best childcare provider I've ever worked with. She is awesome. She is an incredible ambassador for your company and I was thrilled with our experience all the way around! Thank you. I will be a repeat customer! - Kathleen S


Amy -- just a note to let you know that Amy E was absolutely fantastic. She had an immediate connection with our son, and he was great with having a sitter on back to back nights -- something that we really just do not do at home. He was very happy to be with her. I would happily recommend her, and wish she lived closer to us in Washington, DC!

Childcare at La Costa Resort

The entire experience from start to end was absolutely fantastic, professional and easy. Although my daughter is 10, this is her first experience with a babysitter, and mine as well. I wish you were in our hometown. I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. The caregiver, Charlotte, was lovely, and my daughter absolutely loved her. She was punctual (and I needed her at 5:25 am), likeable and I felt safe leaving her to care for my daughter. Kudos to you and your staff.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Childcare

Wanted to express our thanks for caring for our fur-babies while we went to the Padres game. Caprice was wonderful. Our immediate impression was one of calm, gentle, capability. I felt she took the task of looking after our dogs as seriously as the 'real' children she cares for. Fantastic service, professional company. Wish there was a Marion's Childcare in every city we travel to! 🙂

San Diego Hotel Pet Sitting

Oscar had a superb time with Ann! Ann followed his regular night time routine and Oscar went to sleep without a hitch! Ann was so great in asking all the right questions to make sure that Oscar would not have any problems. As we left for the evening (on both nights), Oscar happily looked at us and continued playing. We knew immediately that Oscar would be in great hands!

I just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with both Donna and Caprice. They were both excellent! Matt and I felt so comfortable leaving Emmy with them and appreciated their updates throughout the evening.

Rancho Bernardo Inn Babysitting

We wanted to write a note of thanks for matching us with Caprice. What a wonderful care giver and exactly what we were looking for. We loved her professional style, willingness to help with all aspects with our family and most of all her flexibility. Vacations are such a precious time for us all and having Caprice help made it possible for us to have the best time.

Professional Style & Flexibility

Amy, I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how wonderful Donna was Friday and Saturday evening. We have a 7 week old and leaving her, in a strange city, was very nerve racking. Donna was so calm, comfortable and confident it really made it a wonderful experience. She was very natural with the baby, and just oozed experience. She stayed in touch with us all evening via text which was wonderful!! We can't thank you, and her enough, for such a wonderful experience.

Calm, Comfortable, Confident

Good morning Amy. Thank you very much for giving me Caprice. She is wonderful!! She is exactly what you said about her: lovely, safety conscious, gentle, engaging. I really felt safe with her, and my kids felt comfortable with her in the house.

San Diego Babysitters

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed having Ann watch our son this past week during our trip. She was fantastic with him and she put us both at ease. Christian had so much fun with Ann and greeted her with a big smile the second night. 🙂 It was such a pleasant surprise to find that she, and the majority of your company, are believers! We will definitely remember your company when we are in the area again.

Big Smile on the Second Night

My daughters had a wonderful time in San Diego. Miss Linda had them out of the hotel every day exploring the city and going swimming. She also brought fun crafts and activities for them to do at the hotel. It all turned our perfectly: I got my work done knowing that my daughters were being well cared for and they had a fun vacation in a wonderful city. Thank you!!!

“No Problem At All”

‎Joshua had a great time. Jennifer, our caregiver from Marion's Childcare, was courteous, professional, and a great help to me while I was in conferences all day. She and Joshua took in all sorts of fun activities including the zoo, the Children's Museum, Belmont Park and the USS Midway museum. Joshua can't wait to visit San Diego again, and we will definitely be return customers with Marion's Childcare. Jennifer, Canada
