was always very prompt to respond & kept looking for me.

is punctual, responsible, flexible, caring, professional and always has a smile. Her care for my son has taken the stress out of leaving him at daycare so that I can focus at work, and not feel guilty for working full time. He is always delivered to me clean, happy and satisfied at the end of each day. We have utilized her services for 19 months and will continue to do so after the birth of our third child in 8 weeks. I only wish I had found her sooner, so that my first child could have also benefited from her services!

was very loving and caring towards my daughter. She went beyond what I thought I was getting. My daughter was very happy to be there the few days and I do recommend her to others.

The initial contact has always been good. However, this time after I moved, I did not receive the follow up I was looking for. I had hired a
Dorchester Home Daycare Providers Provider Name Locked
in August of 2013 through this agency. At that time, they provided me with several appropriate candidates. The coordinator called me back in a timely fashion and assisted with setting up the interviews. I moved, and needed a new
Dorchester Home Daycare Providers Provider Name Locked
as the first one would not drive that far. I received 1-2 potential candidates. I did not hear from the agency except to ask if I was still looking. I did not interview the candidates as their English was not up to my needs. I explained this to the agency, but this continued to be a problem. Then, I did not hear back from them except to ask if I am still looking. The price is high for the quality of candidates. I realize that this is fairly usual cost for the industry, but I was not satisfied with the service.

Zaneta and her employees were professional, responsible and trustworthy. They were very knowledgeable with infant care and assisting with a night sleep schedule. They listened to our needs and concerns. My husband and I felt very comfortable with our infant in their care and were able to get a good nights rest.

I was very hesitant at first about hiring a

to help with the kids and give my wife some extra time during the week.

gave me the comfort that their screening process, requirements (CPR Training is a must!) and other training would deliver the best care and safety for my kids and peace of mind for both my wife and me.
While other approaches netted us zero candidates we would hire, we were provided with 5 qualified interviews and could have chosen several finalists. Ultimately we chose one and my daughter now treats her as part of the family. Her favorite days are the ones when the

comes to go to the park and do arts and crafts projects.
I recommend

to all of my family and friends. I couldn't justify any other way to find someone that is going to be a part of your household and family routine.

I loved them! This was a last minute trip. I called a few days before I needed their services and within 24 hrs. I was interviewed and they had a perfect girl for my daughter and little dog. The owner is hands on so I didn't have to worry about schedules(child and dog).It was great and VERY stress free to leave and not worry about every detail.Wish they had been around when all four of my children where small.
