Sandra is an excellent nanny.Ocasionaly, she has looked after my 5years old daughter and once a week after my 17month old son. My son loves her and is always happy when I pick him uo after being in Sandra's care. I wish I had a job with ore hours to be able to hire Sandra full time. She has loads of experience in working with kids, she is caring and understanding of their needs.
I would definetly recomended to a friend.
