RE: Marilyn McMahon
To whom it may concern:
My wife and I have had the pleasure of utilizing Marilyn as our caregiver for our three young children while in Kansas City on business and also sporting events. My children adore her and we have come to think of her as part of the family. She is always prompt and very thorough while bringing her unique skills and personality each and every time we employ her services. I also make sure to have some time before and after we depart to talk with her as I find her perspective refreshing. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a quality person to look after their children while in Kansas City you won’t be disappointed, she will treat them like family.

Dear Ms. McMahon:
Thank you so much for the great child care you have provided for our Strong Bonds marriage retreats. Your ability to provide quality childcare has enabled our couples to focus on the program material without being distracted by wondering if their children are safe and cared for. I am convinced that a successful marriage retreat for our Army families hinges on excellent childcare. Parents are able to maximize the benefits of the marriage enrichment materials we teach during the conferences when they know their children are cared for and engaged in good healthy activities.
I have received excellent feedback from the parents and the children involved in our retreats in regards to your care. You have done such a great job of creating a safe and inviting atmosphere that our children who are beyond the age for the need for childcare want to participate in your program! You do so many extra things that other childcare services do not consider doing. The activities and events you plan are more than just babysitting activities but fun educational events that engage the child’s hearts and minds. I am especially pleased with your coordination with the community agencies near the hotel (the fire department, local law enforcement officials, and wildlife specialists) to provide unique and fun events for our children. You really have gone “above and beyond” the call of duty.
As one who has coordinated and conducted over 40 Strong Bonds marriage retreats you by far have provided the best childcare for our events. You have also been the easiest to work with and the most willing to accommodate our last minute changes.
Thank you again for your great organization and their support to military families.

Thanks again for your great care of Kyle, here is that recommendation I promised.
I met Marilyn McMahon when I traveled with my 3½ yr old son Kyle and husband to Kansas City for a Food Aide Conference in April 2007. Marilyn was recommended very highly by the Westin Hotel Concierge, so I called to inquire about 3 consecutive nights of babysitting with someone we all felt comfortable with, especially Kyle.
During our first phone conversation Marilyn told me she had decades of experience babysitting, she is a registered nurse and a certified teacher, I was measurably relieved. While getting to know her she put me fully at ease that this was going to be an arrangement we could all enjoy.
Sure enough, Marilyn came through the door toting several large bags and smiling.
Then she revealed the dinosaurs, books and numerous other special toys for Kyle to play with. Kyle never cried when we left for dinner and always was sound asleep when we returned to the hotel. Three nights we entrusted Marilyn, with Kyle, she was always prompt, polite, informative, helpful, bright and cheerful. The final act of generosity really took us by surprise as Marilyn gifted Kyle with several perfectly age appropriate books that we enjoy reading often. I would highly recommend hiring Marilyn to anyone looking for a safe, fun, knowledgable caretaker for their children.
Thank you again Marilyn for taking such good care of Kyle,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after my baby Luke whilst we were visiting Kansas from the UK. It was great that you were able to accomodate us at such short notice and I was really impressed that you were so professional, but also caring and fun - Luke seemed to have a great time with you and I felt relaxed and happy leaving him with you - which meant we all enjoyed ourselves! I left your details with the hotel so that anyone else needing childcare will be able to make use of your excellent service.
Thank you again,
I want to express our deepest gratitude for the care you gave our father with very little notice.
Our 80 year old father needed care in addition to being escorted to the nursing home to visit our mother.
We were in Mississippi when we found ourselves in immediate need of someone to care for our father. You took over immediately and provided exceptional service. In addition, you provided emotional support to our adult son who is adjusting to non-college life. He has greatly benefited from your guidance.
Because of your dedication and dependability we were able to continue our week long visit in Mississippi and return home to find things better than when we left.
Our reference of you for all types of care, is to select you before considering anyone else.
