"We are so grateful to have had Fallon for 1 day and a half! Our kids were very happy with her. We were attending a conference in Amsterdam and she totally saved my life. So sweet and active, eager to show my kids around the city too (my kids are teenagers), they played cards, played with the frisbee at the park, talked about things. Super nice experience! Thanks Fallon!"

Cristina, parent

"Irene is a dream sitter! she connected with our children immediately and they adore her. She’s calm and thoughtful and knows how to manage them really well. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat."

Alvaro, parent

"I would always recommend Näpp to anybody looking for a babysitter. The fact that our babysitter speaks German and helps to expose our son to the German language after going to Dutch daycare is a plus and the perfect match for us."

Jessi, parent

“Hiring a Finnish babysitter when our daughter was 9 months old has been one of our best decisions. Now, our three-year-old toddler understands Finnish and speaks it when necessary, even though Dutch is her main language. The babysitter has a strong connection with our toddler and they have completely their “own thing” going on.”

Satu, parent
