Child Day Care reviews in Scottsdale

  • I've been going to Aqua Tots for about a year now after a less than stellar experience with Kim Courtney's Swim School.  I have been very pleased with the quality of their operation and the level of personalization they have provided us.  Their instructors are top notch, kind, enthusiastic, encouraging, and extremely patient.  Even in the group setting, they provide each child with the personal attention needed to insure they advance in a timely manner. 

    My son has made great progress in this program, and is advancing extremely quickly.  I have been delighted with our experience and would highly recommend Aqua Tots to any parent and/or friend.  This has been a very rewarding investment.

  • Stacey was punctual and professional, but also very personable and supportive. She helped me sort out my baby's day schedule and fix his nighttime sleep problems. I also like the fact she is very neat and clean about everything she does. By the time she was done, my baby was sleeping through the night. I never would have hired a nighttime infant care specialist, but as I started to talk to several people at work, I found out more and more people had a nighttime nanny to help for a month or two. They all said it is money well-spent!

  • I like them. I have a girl who comes to watch the baby when I am having functions with the older girls. I am very particular about who watches my children. So I used their services because they do the background checks. They have 2 kinds of people they can find for you. They can find full time help where you get a permanent placement or they can find date night help. I haven?t used them for the date night help. They have stable baby sitters. After my experience with the girl I use right now I would have no qualms about calling and asking for a nanny for the Saturday night. She really finds quality people. I called her on Monday for a nanny and the next day I had 4 candidates to interview. The following day I had 3 more candidates. So in two days I had 7 candidates. Honestly I could have picked any one of them. I picked my favorite. They were all top notch people. In quick short order I picked one person. I am very pleased with her. She is very professional. They charge $20 for a date night service. They charge $1200 - $1300 for a placement of a full time employee. I had used another service which was considerably cheaper but there was a difference in the experience. I would pay extra couple of hundred dollars to get good service. I am not going to mess around when it comes to my children.

  • We have used this nanny agency twice. Four years ago, I was disappointed by lack of follow through on the part of an employee and ultimately found a candidate thru another agency. Nonetheless, we attempted to use them again in search of a new full time nanny. Although I was clear about our family situation and constraints, several candidates supplied were obviously inappropriate- i.e. allergic to pets when we have several. I would have anticipated better screening of applicants considering the cost. We did ultimately agree to placement of a candidate who we kept less than a week. As it turns out, she was far less than truthful with us about some major issues like custody of her children, etc. We did not seek to uncover these details, but she spontaneously offered them only for us to figure out she's obviously lied during the interview, which was a huge trust issue for us. Plus, she kept pushing us to pay her under the table without taking out taxes, etc. Although we thought the steep placement fee of $1375 should have been refunded for this, we were refused, but instead given a 1 yr guarantee for a placement. Shortly thereafter we used the agency for a more immediate temp placement for one week while our search was ongoing. In a nutshell, we uncovered irrefutable proof that the temp nanny was using and probably selling prescription pain meds while caring for our child and driving our car. I confronted the owner, Hilary Lockhart, dumbfounded that this could happen. Despite several emails and a personal meeting, she maintains that there was nothing she could have done to screen better and that her lawyer does not permit her to ask about nanny's families or screen temp nannies for drugs as they are not her employees and she is just a 'placement agency'. She offered to again find us someone else. As I indicated to her, she's struck out twice in being able to appropriately exclude obviously undesirable candidates, and we had no intention of giving her a third chance. We asked for our money back so we could pursue another avenue. She maintains she is under no obligation to refund us. I have told her that I understand things happen, but would love to say that at least she did the right thing if we were asked about our experience by friends or colleagues. Again she refused. In my final email to her, I indicated that I know what it means to run a small business, and in these cases the amount of money involved is never worth the amount of ill will generated by keeping it. She remains steadfast, refusing to refund us after 2 disasters I believe she could have reasonably forseen had she been a bit more diligent. Obviously, her 1 year guarantee of finding me a nanny is of little use to us. She also indicates that how families pay their nanny is not her business, but implied that we were in the clear minority because we wanted to salary someone above board. In this sense she helped the first placement fail by creating an expectation of being paid cash.

  • We have used Parent's Time Out a couple of times, and I have recommended them to many of my friends. PTO has placed two nannies with us, and I could not have gotten through the process without them. They took care of getting background checks, and also helped to find the right "fit" for our family. They saved me the many painstaking hours it takes when trying to fill a nanny position, and with their help, I was able to spend that important time with my children. The staff at PTO is always looking out for the family and nannies best interests. I would highly recommend that if you have looking for a nanny or even a babysitter, use this company!

  • A+ Nannies goes above and beyond. They find the right nannies for us. We have found first rate nanny and permanent nanny through A+ nannies. I recommend them highly.
