       Just wanted to share with you what a pleasant experience we had with American Child Care, Inc. in Chicago on a recent stay. We have never used a sitting service while out of town and were leery to call upon such a service and leave our child with a strange sitter in a strange city. We were so very pleased with the experience.

Her sitters arrive on time, professionally dressed and exhibit an invariably professional and pleasant demeanor. We recommend this agency highly.

       The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Chicago has utilized the services of American ChildCare for over 10 years and we have built a wonderful business relationship with the owner, Rebecca Van't Hof. She has provided excellent babysitters for our guests, and she always makes an extra effort whenever we receive last minute requests ... I would not hesitate to recommend American ChildCare to anyone as it has established itself as the premier babysitting service in the city of Chicago.

Babysitting Service Chicago

       My wife and I want to thank you for generously comp'ing the babysitting services for us during our stay in Chicago on May 9, 2005. The U2 concert was awesome and my wife and I had a wonderful time. I was overwhelmed by your patriotism in supporting an Army Reservist like myself. My family has had to endure a lot over the last two years with the continuous mobilizations. I have had limited opportunities to spend with my family over the last year and the Chicago trip was very special for all of us ... Thank you again for doing your part in support of soldiers. I thank you for being a true American.

Our Child Care Team

Offering professional, dependable and outstanding child care.

Rebecca Van't Hof / Owner / President / Child Care Professional
American Child Care, Inc. was created by Rebecca in 1988, when her first daughter Amanda, was born. While traveling with her family, Rebecca was in need of a babysitter to care for her infant. The service was anything but pleasant, and she was unable to leave her child with the unprofessional sitter. Rebecca came away from that experience with a great idea, to create a reliable sitting service for traveling parents in need of a caring, professional sitter. American Child Care, Inc. was born, and Rebecca had merged the two things that she loves the most - children and beautiful hotels! Since then, American Child Care, Inc. has become the premier childcare provider to the Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Peninsula and Fairmont Hotels. In 1994 ACC opened an office in San Francisco and the New York office opened in 2003. We now service hotels in Chicago and San Francisco. Rebecca's mission is to "exceed the expectations of five star hotels and their guests."

American Childcare Babysitting Service Our babysitter was very caring and put us right at ease. I was nervous about leaving my infant, but she was professional, and very experienced. Not only did she take excellent care of my infant, she entertained my two year old at the same time! My daughter can’t wait to see her again!”
