"I can't say enough good things about Trudie and BBN. After having a terrible time through nanny / care online agencies and FB groups, we decided to proceed with BBN. We are so grateful for Trudie's plethora of knowledge,  particularly of so many different nannies, teachers etc and their reputations. She is kind and spent so much time talking to us to really figure out what our needs are. We are so happy to have found someone perfect for our family through BBN." - L.P.
