Steffi has worked for us since February 2015, coming once a week on average. She is the ideal babysitter and by far the best babysitter we have ever had. We have three young children who adore her and constantly ask when she is coming back. We look forward to leaving our children with her because we know they are getting the best care possible.
She is always engaged in activities with them: crafts, books, outside play, trips to the park, other special outings. Whenever she arrives, she has a plan for how to creatively spend her time with the kids. In addition to being a source of fun, she teaches them responsibility by gently setting firm boundaries. She indulges them without spoiling them.
As parents, we appreciate that Steffi respects our household rules and does exactly what we ask of her. She actually does more; she often stays later than we ask and the house always looks spotless after she has been here.
Steffi is from Germany and we hired her to speak German with our children (although she is fluent in English). She has followed through 100% on this commitment to speak only German with our children. We have found that this is NOT always the case with foreign babysitters, so we are pleased that she has the integrity, patience, and diligence to uphold this part of our agreement.
I would recommend Steffi to anyone seeking full- or part-time care for their child or children. I can't say enough times how wonderful she is for our children.
