Olivia was wonderful, she was on time, very kind and attentive to our instructions! The girls loved her and wished she lived in our home town so she could babysit all of the time.

Had to find someone to watch our almost 11- month old. FTM leaving my little one with a stranger for the first time, so, I did a ton of research and came across Elite Family Care. Debra was so kind and professional and put me at ease. Ellen was scheduled to come over and right away she made me feel very comfortable and I knew my baby would be in great hands. I hope we are able to schedule her again in the near future. I highly recommend this agency 100 percent!

Hansley was great!! My kids loved her - she got in the pool with them, kept them safe, and engaged, and did exactly what I was hoping for. She arrived on time and was totally professional. Definitely recommend her! She sat and did magnatiles with my son and drew pictures with my daughter. She even offered us suggestions about what we could do on our rainy afternoon.
