-Deb from Avon

"We began using The Nanny Connection about 5 years ago . The placement process was easy. Melissa 

listened to my concerns and needs, from the beginning. As our needs change she continues to be attentive and responsive. We have 2 sons, age 8 and 11 and used the on call babysitters.

The sitters have ranged from excellent to exceptional . The price is fair and clearly explained up front.
