Zayaan Chilwan-Price
We have used Baby's First Sitter on a number of occasions, and have always received prompt, professional, and friendly service from Candace and her team. Gracious has looked after my son twice - she is truly an amazing young lady. My son enjoys every minute with her. I would not hesitate to recommend Baby's First Sitter.
