From the minute we met Laura, we loved her. We could easily sense that she was loving and nurturing and at the same time focused and in control. Exactly what one wants from the person you are entrusting the most important people in your life with – your children. Within weeks, Laura became not just our nanny, but a part of our family. And her role in our family became even more important after we brought our newborn home from the hospital, after only four months of Laura starting with us. During this time she became another mother to our almost 2 year old, making sure we were able to meet the typical demands of a newborn, all while ensuring our older daughter did not feel any less special. Since we would be returning back to work after maternity leave ended, Laura also jumped right in to learn the day to day happenings with our baby. Like many babies, ours was not a good napper. But there was Laura, exhibiting the patience that she brings to every interaction she has with our children, and helping us get through those trying and tiring days.
One of the most important qualities we found that Laura possesses is how comfortable she makes you feel in communicating your wants and how respectful she is in following them. She recognizes that each family may want things done in their own way and has no problem acclimating to how each family operates. During the hectic time of bringing home a new baby and readjusting to work/life once returning back to work after maternity leave, we all breathed easier knowing that Laura was there for us. Our children thrived under her care and we will never forget how much she has done for our family. We all absolutely adore her.

My husband and I first met Laura six years ago, when our son was 1 years old. We were looking for someone to watch him, and occasionally his sister (then 4 years old), a couple of days a week. What we found in Laura was an experienced and confident professional, a mom herself, and we knew immediately that she was the perfect choice.
Laura is a deeply caring person and we all loved having her in our home. Laura was an active and attentive caregiver, taking our son to the park and on walks through town and to music classes. We always felt she was willing to do whatever was needed for him and us in any given situation. She would also offer her guidance from her experience as a parent whenever we’d ask, which became an invaluable perk.
Laura truly invested herself in our children and made us feel that we had a partner in raising them. It still feels that way. She still watches them on occasion and we all consider Laura a part of our family.
