Janine has watched over my 2 sons (4.5 years and 2.5 years) for the last few months. Any family that gets to work with her will be extremely lucky! She has a calming spirit in any situation. Two toddler boys can be a handful, but she has handled them well - a clear communicator who knows how to set appropriate boundaries in the best interests of the children. Janine cooked for my sons every day, making fresh, healthy & delicious meals. My older son can sometimes be a picky eater; she always gets him to finish his plate. She also does the kids' laundry weekly, helps with potty training, bath & always leaves everything orderly. She's always willing to go the extra mile. From the first week they met her, it was clear they loved her. They ask every day if she's coming (even on weekends!) and greet her at the door with so much excitement. It's heartwarming. I wish I could stay FT with her and could not recommend her more. I'm still hoping to work with her on weekends and/or nights!
