Korbi G. says:
During the weekend of my wedding, my family was in need of a caretaker for my niece and nephew...someone who could watch them the night of the rehearsal and someone who could be with us the whole wedding day - in the hotel suite while getting ready, at the church and the reception - since both my brother and sister-in-law were standing up for us during the ceremony and of course we wanted them to be able to...

Courtlan B. says:
I just loved Sandy when I interviewed her and even more seeing her with my baby. She helped me get some sleep last week by watching my 2 1/2 week old baby through the night. She not only was reliable and very timely, but she taught me a ton about why my baby might be fussy and gave me some great tips! She was great with the baby, very gentle and knowledgeable. I am so happy to have found her and I plan to... More

Jennifer G. says:
I really, really, really wish I didn't need to write this review but I think other parents need to know what we went through with Sandy. Originally, she responded to me immediately and we met and my daughter immediately fell in love with her. I hired her for a few different dates and felt confident that my daughter was in good hands. I should add that we just moved from Vermont and I was desperate to find good... More

Katelyn V. says:
We interviewed Sandy to work as a night nurse for our newborn son. We saw that she was given mixed reviews, but decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and ignore the reviews that said she was unreliable..Well, that was a mistake. Forty five minutes before she was scheduled to arrive at our house, she emailed (not even call, or text) that she was unable to make it. As a new mother, who is sleep deprived... More

Sandy P. responds:
Hi Katelyn,

On my defense, first of all you contact me because your sister Nicole that lives here in LA needed my help and not you! As for my understanding I was very patient with your sister knowing she only contact me just to waste my time. Nicole G. (your sister) always was changing the time and dates for me to come over and at the end when I told her I wasn't interested anymore of course she didn't like...

Wendy D. says:
I called Sandy last minute and she was available to help me right away. She watched my 7 year old and my 16 month old and when my older son woke up his brother she was able to get him back down and get my eldest to bed. I came home to a quiet house! She even straightened up my nightmare of a kitchen.

Corey S. says:
Sandy was so helpful!!
My wife and I are new parents of twins. We found Sandy on Care.com, and she responded to my email message within an hour. Before the day was out, she had scheduled an interview time to come over and meet the babies.
She really loves working with children. She worked with my kids with confidence and ease, giving me helpful tips along the way.
She's always available by phone to answer...

Micky S. says:
I wish I would've read ALL the reviews before choosing this unreliable woman. The overall score doesn't give the whole picture. I spoke to her THE DAY OF! She said she was coming over and I texted her the address. She never texetd me back saying she got it. I called her when she was 1/2 an hour late and no reply. I actually worried that something happened to her but now that I read all the reviews, I know not... More

Sandy P. responds:
Hi Michaela(aka Micky) I really don't understand what's your frustration. Your text clearly said that you will no longer need me for that day and decided not to go out anymore knowing we had already agreed over the phone that I will come over and babysit! I could've been babysitting somewhere else where maybe another family will appreciate my time. Thank you and good luck with everything.
Jody S. says:
Sandy just started with us on January 4, 2013. We hired her as a night nanny for our newborn son. We also have 3 daughters who are under the age of 4 and we were hoping that Sandy could help get our three daughters ready in the mornings!

So far we have been extremely happy with Sandy. She is very knowledgeable, dedicated, caring, calm, punctual and has already gone above and beyond with our expectations!...

Danielle M. says:
I cannot say enough good things about Sandy. We were in town for a few nights & needed someone to watch our 15 month old baby girl for a family wedding on New Years Eve. She was the first one who replied & had excellent references. She was prompt & wonderful with our daughter who was cranky at first but Sandy new what to do to make her feel at ease.
I would recommend her anytime.
Regards,
Danielle

Stephanie C. says:
My family and I were in LA for 2 weeks and needed extra care for my 2.5 year old daughter while I worked and for evenings out. Immediately, I felt I was in the presence of someone who could take charge, with common sense and lots of fun. Sandy thought of things that I was overlooking in my busy moments and entertained our daughter with songs and activities. It's often hard to come into a new town and find... More

Susan P. says:
I won't deny that she was good when we first hired her. Was on time, called, and was great with my newborn. As a mother to a colicky baby girl and a 2 year old boy having to depend on someone to get some sleep becomes almost like survival. She DISSED me 3 times. First time was apparently a car accident. I'll give her that. Although she NEVER took the time to call, email, or even text me... until I reached out... More

Chelsea G. says:
Sandy was with us for around 4 months and helped take care of our twin boys at night. She was great with feeding the boys at night, training them to sleep through the night, and was very knowledgeable about all things baby. We never had to worry when the boys were with her. She was also really great at teaching mom and dad tons of things we would have never of known. We cannot say enough great things about... More

Sandy babysat for us on a Friday night date night. She was a lot of fun. The kids enjoyed her. She was very sweet. We would be happy to have her babysit for us again.

Lisa T. says:
Sandy emailed me almost immediately after I added the job on Care.com. My husband and I looked through many applicants as this was our first time on Care.com and we left a message for Sandy asking her to call us. I also emailed her. This was Saturday morning, with the job scheduled to be on Wednesday evening. Sandy did not acknowledge the phone call or email.
Posted: 12:01 PM, Mar 14, 2012
Sandy P. responds:
Hi Lisa, When I responded to your ad I was available but right after I got called to babysit somewhere else and for my understanding it took time for you to contact me. I did call you back several times to the number your husband left on the message and there was no answer. I'm sorry it did not work out for you and thank you for this review knowing it wasn't necessary and knowing that I did respond. Good luck!!! More
Shanna B. says:
We met Sandy after she had already accepted another nanny position but were fortunate enough to get her as an on-call sitter for our now 4-month-old son. She is FANTASTIC. A total pro, fastidious, knowledgeable, warm, easy to talk to, and always pointing out tips and tricks as we raise our son. When our son got his first cold, Sandy pointed out his need for more tummy time because she didn't think his neck... More

Neda R. says:
I interviewed her on the phone and scheduled an appointment time. Considering how difficult it is to arrange a meeting with a 5 months old baby, I have waited 30 minutes in the coffee shop for her to arrive. I even called her two times and texted her, no response! She was not professional enough to cancel her appointment or let me know that would not be able to make it. She is definitely not reliable!

Sandy P. responds:
Hi Neda, I appreciate the time you took to write this review on my profile. Unfortunately their was a misunderstanding and I thought I made my self clear that at this time I wasn't able to meet your care needs. I'm sorry and good luck!
Eileen S. says:
Sandy babysat for my toddler and my friend's infant while in town for a wedding. She was very easy to talk and quick to respond to my messages and phone calls. She was punctual to the appointment and was great with both children. She was able to put my child to sleep when he hard a time going down. I would definitely use Sandy again if she lived in my city.

Rocki D. says:
Sandy is amazing! We were so impressed with her on paper but even more impressed when she watched our newborn twin daughters. Very calm and sweet and just the most trustworthy person. She really gave us peace of mind that we have the best care for our daughters and we highly recommend her!
