Robyn has always been incredibly flexible around my husband and I's schedules as he works shift work and I work Monday-Friday. I could count on her to always get back to me in a timely manner, and give me plenty of notice if she had to make changes to our schedule. She always sends me text messages with updates on their outings and sends me pictures so I don't feel like I am left out of their days together. My son always asks when Robyn is going to come over next. Robyn is a part of our family now, and I could not have gotten through the past 1. 5 years as stress free child-care wise without her. She is so kind and even took my son out when my daughter was first brought home to help us out, without compensation. I am sad to think that when we move out of Vancouver, that we will no longer be able to have her as our nanny. Robyn is very professional and understanding, and I have not had any negative experiences with her. I hope that you find her to be an excellent addition to your family, as I know she will take amazing care of your child(ren).

Every time Robyn looks after our two young girls (2. 5 y and 1 y) our toddler asks where she is for a few days after. They have so much fun with her. Robyn is easygoing yet confident, even with our baby. I don't worry at all about the kids when we're out of the house.
-Alexis A

Robyn is very professional, reliable and caring. I really appreciate her gentle touch with our sometimes very fussy baby. Our toddler also loves her. She is always very engaged by any activity that Robyn suggests. I have complete confidence in her care.
-Hanna E

We met Robyn when we found ourselves in urgent need of a nanny for a few days for a 9-month-old. I was very impressed with how quickly and confidently she was able to step into the role and give him attentive care. I appreciated her regular updates throughout the day, which made me more comfortable leaving him with a new person for so many hours at a time. Robyn was able to quickly establish trust with both me and my son, and I came home to a very content baby.

From Olive (8 year old twins):
Robyn is very nice, she is supportive. She is funny. And she does a good job of taking care of kids.
From Holden:
She is sweet, kind, and nice.

Robyn recently took care of our 10-year-old special-needs son while we were away. She was nothing less than fabulous.
She took him out and entertained him during the day and slept over at night. When we returned from our trip, he kept asking where Robyn was.
I most definitely recommend Robyn and will certainly use her again in the future.
-Anne-Maree F

Robyn is excellent with our 2 year old daughter. She is able to jump into any situation. I feel extremely at ease knowing my daughter is in good hands. I would recommend her services to any family.
-Christine S

Our regular nanny was away for 5 weeks - yikes.. We were so lucky to have Robyn to step in and care for our active 16 month old. Our daughter had so much fun with Robyn and was all smiles every time she arrived in the morning. Highly recommended.
-Alexa B

Robyn has been wonderful for our active little 18 months daughter. She is caring and engaging. We can always rely on her when we need a date or just a break. Highly recommended.

Robyn began babysitting my eldest son when he was about 1. 5 years old. The moment she walked in the door, she immediately connected with my son, got down on his level and began to play. I was awestruck by the way she was able to immediately connect with my son and continue to be impressed by her charming, playful manner, her energy, her professionalism and genuine love for children. But that's not all. Robyn also did something for our family that I will never forget. A day or so before the birth of our second son (now 10 months old), I called Robyn asking if she would be able to babysit our first son when I went to the hospital. (My husband and I don't have family in Vancouver, so I assumed I'd be delivering our baby by myself while my husband stayed with our first son at home. ) Well, she ended up coming to our apartment at 11 p. m. and stayed the night on our couch to be there for our first son so my husband could be with me in the hospital for the birth. We got home the next morning -- new baby in tow -- to find she was already busy playing with our son in the living room, as if we never left. I cannot be more appreciative of her support to be there for our family so my husband could be with me. Since that day, she has gone on to babysit both our sons. And she has recommended me to another babysitter when she isn't available who is also excellent, which shows me that Robyn has a good network of other trusted sitters and nannies and that she is a good judge of character.
I look forward to working with Robyn for as long as we live in Vancouver (and she's willing. ) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a loving, trusting nanny or sitter.
