WHAT OUR FAMILIES THINK ABOUT US

Robert Walker

Sandy is great with our 4-year-old son, Ewan. He really has fun with her. She is attentive when playing, and follows our directions. She’s also quick to communicate with us when needed. She’s our 1st choice.

I’ve loved all the services Project Date Night provides.

When my daughter was a young baby I only needed a sitter a few afternoons a month. There was always a sitter available when I needed one.

As she got older, I started to work more and needed a regular sitter three afternoons a week. PDN helped me find the right match for our family.

My husband and I have used the weekend playdate to drop our little girl off and go get brunch together. Fun!

And my daughter has a such a great relationship with her sitter that instead of dragging the little girl up to a wedding upstate this fall, we instead chose to ask her PDN sitter to stay with her in Brooklyn overnight. And I expect that that will be more fun for everyone.

Totally recommend!

Everyone who works here is so super sweet and good with my son. I have used the service for last-minute bookings quite a few times and they are always reliable and on time. Everyone I’ve worked with is great with the kids, really sweet and full of energy to run after my little toddler.

My boys just loved Naveen. She is very professional. Arrived on time and asked the right questions. She took the time to play with my 2 boys and even took them to the park. In a world where most babysitters these days are on their phones and use the TV as a babysitter, she was 100% present. This has been a very seamless process. Thanks, Project Date Night for taking the stress out of finding a last-minute babysitter!

I have really liked using Project Date Night. Dana was our first-ever babysitter when our son was around 3-4months old, and we were very nervous leaving him for the first time…. but he loved her, and she really helped get us comfortable. She also gave me lots of advice and tricks that helped me with him whenever he was fussy. She has then introduced me to two separate sitters through her network, and we now work with Neveen regularly as well (and we really liked her too!) I like that I have at least three great options if one of them isn’t available.

For those with older kids, my sister in law from Australia (who has had multiple nannies/au pairs/sitters) also used Dana for her 3 and 5-year-old when she was in town and loved her. In fact, it was my sister in law who recommended me to Dana!

I’ve known Dana for years and have heard she’s a good nanny, but I didn’t realize how knowledgeable and how passionate she was about kids until I saw her work. Dana has watched my twins many times and is very reliable, loving and has the expertise and calm that comes with many years of experience. She understands the needs of a working mom. Her service will be an incredible asset for your family.

We have been happy members of the Project Date Night family since they got started! It is like our family’s secret weapon to have the flexibility of last-minute bookings along with high-quality care from a network of folks with roots in the neighborhood. Everyone has been wonderful. Erika is just lovely. I refer people all the time to Project Date Night!
