"After talking to Vicki I felt that I could totally trust her and by extension any one she sent over. I also like that it was just one phone call to make. As a new mom, anything that removes tasks and worries from my list is a very good thing."
"Swiss Cheese is a good value - the right service for the right price. I prefer to use agency booking services because I prefer some amount of vetting (vs. just a blind hire). I have full confidence that Swiss Cheese not only finds capable sitters, but sitters that are appropriate for my family's needs and are generally normal, honest people."
"The flexibility and the sitters... you are all great!"
"I think the idea of allowing families a more community based "agency"/collective versus hours of craigslist emails or overpriced corporate agencies is amazing. I also think it works great for those looking for work as well, to not have to deal with either of those routes, as well as feeling connected to a community based idea."
"Great idea, great babysitters!"
"We're relatively new to the service, but so far it's great. The quality of the sitters is extremely good."
"I think the communication aspect is working really well. I like having the collective to ask for advice and to talk about what's working for the kids and families we are working with."
"SCCC is awesome!"
"I'm very grateful that it exists! The idea of a community based organization is appealing and I like that a trustworthy person is pre-screening the babysitters."
"Sorry - I am very late with this just soo busy. I like that I don't have to hunt around for a babysitter. As a single working mom I simply don't have time for that. The fact I can call Vicki and have her find someone is awesome. I also like that the sitters are adults and can get to my place themselves (unlike a local teenager who might need a ride)."
"The involved, attentive care that my daughter receives is top notch. Each sitter from Swiss Cheese, including Vicki herself, has been affable, bright and intelligent and overall a pleasure to interact with. All of them have taken Ava for a ride in her jogging stroller, colored with her and, one of my favorite things, sent me a picture from time to time to let me see her when I'm not with her."
