"Emily C. is here right now and I'm getting a number of tasks done. She's lovely and professional. This is a wonderful business and I'm so glad we found you all.

"Kymberli C was great the other night. When we put my (over tired) 3 year old in the car she said 'Mommy did Ms Kymberli go home?! But I miss her! Do you think maybe you could call her so I can say hi?!' So in other words she LOVED her. :) " - Susan D.

"I would like to recognize Ms. Brenda on the amazing job that she did this past Saturday. Brandon and I knew it was going to be a great night as soon as she entered our house. Ms. Brenda was immediately ready to engage with the kids. She made the kids feel comfortable like she had known them for years. During the time she was at the house she helped the girls with their homework, watched a movie with the kids, took the kids outside to play (for hours), and assisted the kids with showers and baths before Brandon and I returned home. Did I mention that the house was also clean, no signs of the kids playing around while we were away. Ms. Brenda is a great representative for Seminole Sitters and I look forward to having her watch the kids again." - Stefanie B.

Our daughter, Stella, instantly warmed to her during the initial visit the week prior and she went to Brenda with open arms that Monday morning - I can't tell you how comforting that was for us! Brenda was kind enough to text throughout the day to let us know that Stella was having a good time and eating/sleeping well. Stella was all smiles each morning when Brenda arrived and was playing hard when I arrived back home in the afternoons. This was our first babysitting or nanny experience since Stella was born just over a year ago, and we are so glad we made the leap with Seminole Sitters! Brenda is top notch and we know Stella was in great, caring hands. We all look forward to having Brenda back soon!" - Lisa S.

Please thank them all, once again, for us. We REALLY thought they were great!" - Danielle S.
"We absolutely LOVE Alexys. She was wonderful with both kids and J took to her in about 5 minutes. She has a fantastic demeanor with children, especially one J's age who is still trying to work on manners and rules. She is a great combination of being both a friend as well as a teacher...getting him engaged in the activities beyond just play and keeping on top of him with respect to manners. We felt like we hit the jackpot and are so excited to have her back over. Thank you so much for sending her our way. J is already asking when she can come back over to play." - Ashlee W.

She played games, read books and dealt with a wide variety of ages and temperaments. One of her days was very long and her positive attitude never wavered. We will definitely request Simone for our next event!" - Jennifer T., The One Week Boutique
"Thank you for picking Emily for us; she was a total professional and spent the evening painting, making jewelry, and drawing with the twins. The girls had a great time, despite the fact that it was the first babysitter we have hired in almost two years! We can't wait to have her babysit next weekend and (hopefully) many more times after that. Thank you for providing such a responsible company that ensures kids get the best care possible!" - Alix M.

Our two year old talks about Ms. Virginia constantly and always looks forward to her arrival. We love Ms. Virginia!" - Angela S.

"Ms. Bri was very sweet. The boys seemed happy and calm when we got home. I would definitely use her again. :)" - Adria H.
"We had Ms. Brianna today. We are so happy with her. It was her first day. She had both boys the whole time which the preschooler alone can be a handful. She handled him well. She didn't let him get away with bad behavior in a very productive way. The baby is the most laid back, easy going, happy baby however with new sitters can be little challenging when it comes to nap time. Brianna had him down 'normal' times. She kept me updated as I had asked with texts. When I got home both boys were in good spirits. Just wanted to share how happy we are with her. First days can be rough with my boys. Mostly my very strong willed 5yr old." - Renée S.
"Ms. Clarissa was absolutely fantastic! She was sweet and attentive with the children. We can't wait to use her again! If you couldn't tell we liked her very much!" - Christina D.

"Ms. Sarah is super sweet and it's obviously that she really loves children. She's very warm and caring. 5 stars!" - Anna H.
"Ms. Elizabeth was fabulous and the kids begged for her to come again soon. Even our 12 year old enjoyed her... and that's saying something! She even brought puzzles for each of them and then let them keep them afterward. They loved that. We hope to book her next time. She's fabulous!" - Kathy C.
"Ms. Elizabeth was a wonderful sitter and both babies were very happy. Thank you again!" - Wendy H.
"Ms. Ellen is great! Caylen absolutely adores her." - Amanda M.

Thanks to your wonderful business of dedicated caregivers, my kids actually look forward to me leaving - LOL!" - Mandi B.
"Just a note to let you know how very impressed my husband and I were with Ms. Andrea and her services! She babysat our sweet Ava on Thursday and she was WONDERFUL! Nothing beats arriving home at midnight with a child who's had dinner, a bath, a story, and is fast asleep! Every parent's idea of a perfect date night. Ms. Andrea kept me updated throughout the evening while allowing us to enjoy and have peace of mind that Ava was in good hands." - Cheron D.

"Thanks for all you do to ensure we have great childcare!" - Christa P.
"We just wanted to say THANK YOU :) Andora was fantastic and Amay had a really great time. We were able to enjoy a peaceful night out as we knew Amay was being cared for by a true professional. Andora was so responsive to us when I texted her to check in. She even sent us a picture of Amay playing, which made us really happy. Your company is truly fantastic and we have recommended and will continue to recommend your services to everyone we know." - Sreyas S.
"Thank you very much for helping us fill the gap last week. Your sitters were fantastic, caring, and professional. We will be using your services in the future for such fill-gaps." - John T.
"I just wanted to congratulate you for Ms. Anna and the services your company provides. Since we are still new to the area we were very reluctant to leave our kids with anyone.

My husband and I were able to enjoy a great evening out (which has not happened in over a year). THANKS!" - Maria P.

"I just wanted to send you a quick follow-up regarding our experience with Tatum on Saturday. We were extremely happy with her and would definitely like to use her in the future. She arrived a few minutes early (love!) and stayed through the last minute even though we were done with our chores about 15 minutes early. She was very engaged with Joel from the first few minutes she arrived and he took to her right away. I LOVED that she constantly talked to him – explained everything they were doing, asked him questions, etc. It was 'all about Joel day' and he loved it." - Ashlee W.
“She was proficient in making our children feel comfortable with her in a very quick manner, and we were able to trust our children's safety and happiness to her on many occasions.” - Steve C.
“Mary saved us when we were in a major time of need. I was due to have our second baby and had no one to watch our son. I contacted Mary who assured me that she would be there for us. And sure enough at 5:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning she jumped in her car and was here all day to be with our son while I had our daughter. I don't know what I would have done without her.” - Jen C., mother of two
“Seminole Sitters has been an answered prayer for our family. Having a reliable, trustworthy, young person to babysit my three children is something invaluable.” - Joni M.

“We have been working with the staff of Seminole Sitters for several years and have been very impressed with the love and care they provide for our children. The sitters are very punctual and our kids are always so excited to see them. When we return from our time away the kids tell us how much fun they had with their sitter playing hide and go seek and reading stories. We have been very pleased with our experience with the very professional, creative, and loving sitters we have worked with through Seminole Sitters.” - Adrienne F., mother of two
“We've been extremely happy with Seminole Sitters. Mary does a great job of screening the sitters, who are always well-trained and lots of fun for the kids. And when one of our favorite sitters graduates or moves from Tallahassee, we know that Mary will find us a terrific new one quickly.” - Carter H.
“We have no family in town and four children. If I didn't have Seminole Sitters to rely on life would be very difficult. I have the peace of mind knowing that if I need a sitter, I'm going to get a professional, CPR certified sitter at my door. That is worth the world to me.” - Diane K.
“We love Seminole Sitters and our Sitter, Abbie. They have been an answered prayer. Our three-year-old loves to see Abbie coming and asks us to leave when we come home because she wants Abbie to stay. Everyone should use Seminole Sitters.” - Jennifer G.
“Seminole Sitters is great. They are very dependable. Their babysitters are responsible, courteous, and great with my boys.” - Dawne B.
“Seminole Sitters has continually been professional and timely in all manners that my wife and I would expect.” - Steve C.
“Seminole Sitters has been very accommodating for all of our needs and even a few last minute issues. Our sitter, Erica, is always on time, does fun activities with our son, and he is always a happy young man when I get home. Mary's judgment in placing sitters with families is spot-on and her services, and the Sitters, fill an inevitable void when both parents work. Thank you, Seminole Sitters!” - Tera W.

Most importantly, my children have fun and look forward to our babysitter coming. It makes for an even better night out when you leave happy children.” - Michelle C.
“We have no family in town and four children. If I didn't have Seminole Sitters to rely on life would be very difficult. I struggled in years past putting off dentist, doctor, and hair appointments for myself as I had no sitter. Seminole Sitters is making me a happier, healthier person.” - Diane K.
“We have used Seminole Sitters’ services over the last two years for special events and general childcare for our church. We have repeatedly received exceptionally caring and conscientious sitters and we highly recommend their services.” - Shannon Caldwell, Church Administrator
