"I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was doing business with you for our Alumni Reunion event at the Lodge at Sonoma in June. I heard nothing but outstanding feedback from the quality of childcare givers provided. I look forward to using your services again."

Thanks so much for sending Renee to be our nanny.  My grandchildren adored her:  when given the choice to be with the adults for some dancing, Spencer would have nothing to do with it and requested to be alone with Renee at the cottage.  Morgan told us she brought 6 million great toys and let her eat all of her potatoes!


Hi Caitlin,

Virginia Collins gave me your info to speak to you about our experience with Debbie this past weekend. We absolutely loved her! She watched my daughter Camille who is 3 months old for 7 hours on Friday and 8 hours on Saturday. She arrived early both days, was very warm and nurturing to Camille, and communicated often during her time with us.  I felt 100% comfortable with her and am sad she doesn't live in New York so I could use her all the time. I too was very nervous to leave our baby with a stranger, I interviewed our current nanny for weeks before hiring her to watch my older son when he was small. But Debbie was truly great and I had a wonderful time knowing Camille was safe and happy. :). Feel free to ask me anything else if you have further questions.
Take care, Teresa

Hello Virginia,

A thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your nannies Mary and Shawn were delightful the two days we had them
watch over my grandchildren, so that my daughter in law and son could enjoy his sister's wedding. They were warm,
courteous and so loving to the children - can not thank you enough. And Virginia, again, I must say, you were
such a "love" to work with. Thanks for being a helpful part of my daughter's wedding.

Best Regards,

Thanks so much for providing Harry with such a lovely and kind woman. It was my first time leaving him
with someone and I appreciated Renee's warmth with both Harry and myself. I bet she's an amazing mom.

Best to you.

Hi Virginia,
We really enjoyed Renee and your service. It made our time in Sonoma so nice to be able to have a little time away from the baby and know that she was in good hands. As you know, that is very valuable! I would definitely recommend Nanny On Call to anyone who will be in the Sonoma area and we hope to be up and use you (and Renee!) again. We loved Renee, she was absolutely

Thanks so much,

Hi Virginia,

I just wanted you to know that Renee was absolutely wonderful help to us during our stay in Sonoma. Thank you very much for getting everything arranged. Unbelievably, Katherine took to her immediately and needed no "warm up" time.  Renee brought a toy or two and focused her attention on that.  I've never seen her warm up so quickly to a stranger. She really had a wonderful touch. My son loved her as well, and both were very excited to see her every evening before dinner and bedtime.  It was so much easier to fulfill our other commitments knowing that our children were in such responsible and loving hands.
Thank you so much, and thanks again to Renee.

"I'm so glad we found you! It was a pleasure to be able to enjoy a relaxing evening out knowing that our son was happy when we left. I will let my friends know you are available for 'wine country' weekends! Thank you for bringing the perfect bedtime books to read too."

Thank you so much for all of your help in finding us such a wonderful nanny for the evening.
Caryl was just wonderful and incredibly sweet. I wanted to pack her up and take her home with
Me. It was really a wonderful FIRST experience for us.

"I have been using Nanny On Call for four years. The baby sitters are all excellent and my two children think of several of them as friends who come and visit when we are in Sonoma. The service itself is highly reliable and I trust them completely."

Dear Sirs,
During our visit, we hired and outside baby sitter who was just wonderful. I believe her name was Virginia. (she was the head of the company) While watching over our children, she was nice enough to bring with her several of her own puzzles which the kids loved. Unfortunately, when Virginia went to leave, she realized that she had lost one piece of her puzzle.  Before leaving, we searched but couldn’t find the missing piece.  As luck would have it, the missing piece just popped out of something yesterday.  And in the spirit of friendship that Virginia 100% represents, I am enclosing this piece and asking that you somehow return it to her.

" We have used Nanny On Call for several years now for our children Chloe and Liam, whether we spend a weekend or a month in our summer house in Sonoma.  The nannies Virginia has sent us have always been professional and caring, and won our children over.  We also appreciate the agency's professionalism and ease to do business with."

Your ladies were fantastic!  Thank you so much for your help with the wedding, and please thank the nannies. They were so warm and fun, and I know the parents sincerely appreciated their great attitudes and service.  We look forward to working with you again.
