Ultimately, the sitter's interaction with children has been observed and each employee selected has been deemed to be an asset to the company.

“I want to thank you for your help to get a nanny. She was excellent and did a great job. All the children really liked her. Especially given the task, to look after six children, she was outstanding. We (the adults) had a great night and felt very secure to have your nanny with our children.”
– Bo Gyldenvang, (Area Director of Nordics & Benelux BMC Software), Denmark
“I have used A TLC Service for my three year old granddaughter since she was six months. They have the best baby-sitters I have ever had and I trust them completely. They know children, are so loving and do everything right!”
– Julia Nunley, Bay Colony, Naples, FL
“Thank you TLC for the excellent care given to our two boys. Your kindness and attention to their needs was very well received by them. They were excited to see the sitter on the second evening! You provided us with peace to enjoy evenings out and also attend to professional obligations. TLC has shown me they do care about children, the secret to their success… children first! We appreciate this focus and would gladly use A TLC Service again.”
– Juan Diz (VP John Hancock Financial Services), Mississauga, Ontario
“We have used TLC at our vacation home for the past five years and we could not be happier. Their sitters have been incredibly professional, caring and well prepared. They arrive with age appropriate books, art supplies and toys. They are warm, kind and our children always love them. My husband and I leave completely at ease knowing that our children are in excellent care. They provide the priceless gift of peace of mind to parents who need a night out!”
– Ali & Brad Singer, Washington, D.C.
“Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for looking after our daughter while we were in Naples. Also to thank you for the lovely Dr. Seuss book you gave her. – it’s safely tucked away where only Mommy and Daddy can reach it to read to her.
We were reassured knowing she was in your expert care and we could take a few hours to relax! We will definitely recommend you to any friends coming over for a holiday. Hopefully we’ll be back within the next year or so and we’ll certainly be in touch with you.”
– The Downing Family
“From the very first call to the post follow-up, TLC exceeded expectations making our trip better than imagined. We had not utilized a service on vacation and were nervous but the owner talked us through the process and put us at ease. The sitter was confident, attentive and engaged. She quickly assessed what our daughter liked. They drew and played and were in the pool within an hour. After years of lessons she was not swimming independently, but on the first day with a TLC sitter she started swimming!
The sitter worked with her calmly and blew us away by her patience and proficiency. Our daughter smiled all day and did not want her to leave. Luckily we booked her for a week! We look forward to A TLC Service each time we return and are currently planning our third trip.”
– The Conrows, Chicago, IL
“Our family spent Christmas in Naples and as avid golfers we needed to find a professional and trustworthy sitter for our four year old twin daughters. TLC was highly recommended and Marion was extremely professional in helping us find just the right person. Our sitter gained the trust and affection of our children quickly and made my life as a parent easy – knowing exactly what I wanted for them which meant little preparation for me. I was able to relax and trust this person (we only just met)! We recommend TLC to anyone looking for extremely qualified, reliable and loving childcare.”
– Susan Smith, London, England
“Our sitter was not only a wonderful caregiver for our rambunctious three year old son, but set our minds at ease with her warm, reassuringly professional manner. She relieved our anxiety about leaving our child with a stranger in a strange city and we were able to enjoy our evenings. She brought crafts and books, which were really helpful since we hadn’t packed many toys. He was peacefully asleep when we returned each night and she took the time to fill us in, a step some services skip. I would recommend A TLC Service to anyone living in, or visiting, the Southwest Florida area!”
– Andi and James Cimino, Bethesda, MD
“A Tender Loving Care Service is the most loving and professional agency I have ever used to care for my three children. Our sitters have been kind, respectful and adoring of our children each and every time, thus enhancing our vacations over the years in Naples.”
– Courtney Giraudo, San Francisco, CA
“Your service made my vacation with my three children so much easier. One of your ladies was a night nurse for my infant so I could enjoy my days in the sun while fully awake! My husband and I feel blessed to have had a woman with her expertise in our home. She taught us so much about infant and child development. She is Naples’ Super Nanny! We will use what she taught us for years to come.”
– Victoria (Mom of three)
“A TLC Service is my preferred group of baby-sitters. My grandchildren look forward to the entertainment and adventure, while I appreciate how kind and responsible they are.”
– Connie Eaton, Naples, FL
“We’ve been wintering in Naples since 2007 and look forward to visits with our children and grandchildren (ages two to eleven). The TLC sitters have done an outstanding job looking after them! Our experience has been wonderful! They are responsible, warm, loving and caring. They come happy to accommodate in any way they can, prepared to entertain with treasure hunts, arts, crafts and games. When we’re out with our adult family we can relax knowing that the children are happy and being looked after well. We have complete confidence in TLC and recommend them to anyone looking for truly professional caregivers. They are fantastic in every way!”
– Mr. & Mrs. Jim Orr (retired CEO of Convergys Corporation), Port Royal in Naples, FL
