Meet Paola

I am 48 years old. I am married for 26 years and have a 12-year-old daughter. Most of my clients are word-of-mouth referrals, and they have become our extended family, some, I have known since their kids were newborns, and I taught them to walk, their first words, and even potty trained them!

I am 48 years old. I am married for 26 years and have a 12-year-old daughter. Most of my clients are word-of-mouth referrals, and they have become our extended family, some, I have known since their kids were newborns, and I taught them to walk, their first words, and even potty trained them! As an experienced child caregiver at a prestigious facility, I know first hand that kids need more than a warm body and a fancy curriculum to flourish, they need a committed, caring individual, willing and able to nurture their needs in all stages of their development, as if they were my own children, with every parent, I like to address safety issues, duties, and expectations. This ensures that we are all on the same page, and kids are provided with a safe, loving, and consistent environment in which they can thrive! While in my care, it is my job to ensure that your kids are provided with the best care and in accordance with your own moral values. Physical and intellectual activities, behavioral demeanor, and nutritional guidelines are set by you, "the parent," and carried out by me, "the extended parent."

Amy D. says:
Paola is wonderful! She has a naturally nurturing and calming presence, and was fantastic with my baby boy. I immediately felt at ease with her. Her attention to detail was great: I was given a log of feeds, diapers, and activity. I highly recommend her!

Allison A. says:
Paola is a FANTASTIC caregiver! She is kind, caring, loving, trustworthy, prompt, and puts the children as her one and only priority while she is caring for them. She kept our 4 month old son and I was impressed with how fast she connected with him, he obviously had no fear or anxiety about being with her as he smiled and giggled at her. She put him at ease when he got fussy. She truly will love and care... More

Jeanine R. says:
As new mom, I was nervous to hire someone from a website to care for my infant. HOWEVER, all of my fears went away when I talked with, and then met, Paola. I also called her references that she shared with me, and they were all glowing. She has taken care of my son several times now, and I hope to have her around for a long time! She is so professional and loving at the same time. I trust her completely, and... More

Maria C. says:
Paola has worked for us for several months now. She is really wonderful with kids, has a lot of charisma and experience. I have learned from her some good tips that helped me better raise my son who is almost 2 years old now.She is very committed to her job, always on time and very trustworthy. I know my son is in safe and loving hands when I leave him with her, she takes excellent care of his "little angel"... More

Hillary M. says:
There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Paola is! She has taken care of my 8 month old for the past few months and has been such a blessing to my family and me. Paola is always on time and very dependable. She is extremely trustworthy and loves taking care of children. She treats my baby like he is her own child and that gives me great peace of mind when I have to leave him at home with her. One... More

Katherine T. says:
Paola started working as a part-time nanny for us in October 2011 and is fantastic with our son. I work from home and wanted to avoid sending our son to daycare as long as possible and finding Paola made this possible. She started working for us when he was three months old and the two of them bonded immediately. Each day she documents his feeding times as well as any activity they did together. She is great...

Nada A. says:
Paola has helped me out many times with my 11 month old twins and two year old - all boys. We moved to Houston a few months ago and needed some last minute baby sitting, I posted a request on Paola's page and she responded asap. We had a lovely phone chat and I was left with a good instinctual feeling about her and I wasn't wrong. She is wonderful - very caring and very professional. She left a detailed list... More

Andrea B. says:
Paola helped our family during a week when my daughter's preschool was out of session. She put my daughter at ease quickly and was very attentive to her needs. Paola also kept me well informed of the day's events. My daughter is still talking about her! We will be very eager to call on Paola again.

Janette C. says:
Paola is wonderful. She was referred to us via a word of mouth friend. The previous two referrals capture it all. She is one of the first and only people we trust to watch our young daughter.

Katharine C. says:
Paola has helped us out a few times now and I second the other reviewer - she is wonderful and I hope she will stay available for us despite the glowing reviews! She is extremely thorough and detailed. She left me notes and filled me in on everything that happened while she was with our son (what he ate, naptime, diapers, and what they read and did). He can't talk yet but he lights up when she comes over... More

Rosanna H. says:
I found Paola through care-on-call and she was an absolute lifesaver. She is very thorough, left me a very detailed list of what-happened-when (eating, diapers, playtime, naptime, etc). She offered to do any light housekeeping I might need, and put me very much at ease while leaving my child in her care at our first visit!

I almost hate to give her such a glowing review for fear that she'll become so popular...
