       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.

       American ChildCare has been our babysitting service ever since we opened our doors in 1989. Four Seasons Chicago has a clientele with extremely high expectations and Rebecca Van't Hof has always fulfilled these expectations by providing excellent service. Her agency is very dependable. Her sitters arrive on time, professionally dressed and exhibit an invariably professional and pleasant demeanor. We recommend this agency highly.

       Thank you for the child care services that were arranged for the Kirkland and Ellis LLP Annual Share Partner event that was held on April 29th and 30th, 2005 at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago. The arrangement of each event for the separate age groups were enjoyed by all. I appreciated all of your assistance in getting this organized and making it a nice event to remember. Again, many thanks to you and your staff for a great job.

       We recently had the pleasure of using one of your babysitters during our holiday in New York. Chelsea looked after our 12 month old daughter exceptionally from 10th - 12th of March. I am writing to thank you and the most commendable Chelsea for giving us such a high standard of care and commitment.

Babysitting Service Chicago

       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.
