We are so happy we found Mrs. Kay! She is absolutely incredible with my kids. She has such a calmness to her voice and her mannerisms so my son took to her quickly. Highly recommend her for any job. My boys look forward to her coming to watch them!

Mrs. Kay filled a great need for our family perfectly. My husband and I work fulltime and were able to juggle our boys' (6 yo and 8yo) COVID crisis time homeschooling for a few months. But by summer, we needed help. Mrs. Kay created a fun and engaging curriculum for them 3 days a week, brought in age-appropriate activities like origami and math worksheets. Our boys enjoyed the time they spent with Mrs. Kay!

Kay is extremely kind and patient. She has a sense of calm about her that immediately put our baby at ease. She's great with texting photos and updates. We will definitely call Kay again the next time we are in Oahu.

I'm so happy to have found Kay! I've hired her a few times and will continue to do so. She's very sweet, reliable and flexible with her hours. She's great at sending updates so I can really enjoy myself and know that my son is in good hands. My two year old absolutely adores her.

Kay is an amazing babysitter, and I highly recommend her! We were looking for an Auntie to watch our two young sons, and Kay fit the bill perfectly. She came over to meet the boys a few days before the job and to make sure everything was a good fit. She immediately interacted with both my sons (ages 6 mos & 2 y/o), and I felt confident that they would be in good hands. Kay genuinely cares about the kids she cares for, and she's not just doing it for the money. As a parent who doesn't get out often, it was a relief to get text updates on the kids & to always know everything was going well. She is also very flexible and rolls with the circumstances. The only regret I have is not finding Kay sooner!

Kay was a wonderful help to our family while we were on vacation in Hawaii. She was extremely flexible and thoughtful, and our baby in particular delighted in her company. She was a pleasure to work with.

We can't say enough amazing things about Mrs. Kay. Finding a sitter we trusted with our 1 year old had been tough, but Mrs. Kay has eased our fears of leaving our little one. She has a true love for littles, and our little one loves her just as much. We can't recommend Mrs. Kay enough.

Ms. Kay has been babysitting for us a few times and she is AWESOME! My 5 year old really loves when she is babysitting her. Ms. Kay is patient, loves to do activities with her and is very hands on. She is also wonderful with our infant son. We couldn't be happier that we found Ms. Kay.

Miss Kay is a very warm spirit. She took very good care of my three little ones. They had so much fun playing games with her while mom and dad had a date! I would recommend her to any family who is looking for a warm-hearted professional to care for there child(ren).

Kay has been babysitting my two children occasionally, mostly on days off of school, and she has always been prompt, respectful, responsible, and has a wonderful positive attitude and a warm demeanor. She is always ready to focus on the children when she comes over and every experience as been a good one!

Ms. Kay watched my daughter for two days during Spring Break while I worked from home. My daughter really enjoyed her, and she engaged with my daughter the whole time, based on my daughter's interests. They played board games, did "art" and even cooked some. Ms. Kay remembered that my daughter's birthday had just passed and brought her something. It meant the world to her. We will definitely use her again if she's available when we need someone.

I am so glad I found Kay on Sittercity. She babysat our child (1 1/2 yrs old) on multiple occasions and we will continue to use her as long as she is willing. I met with Kay first and after talking with her and getting to know her background, she made me feel so comfortable. My husband was so confident in my description of our meeting, he did not feel the need to meet her before her first job with us. She is great with our daughter. She loves children, as evident in seeing my child's reaction when she arrives. She has done both day time and night time sitting, and has been able to get my daughter to eat, nap, bathe, and sleep. She is a great choice for your sitter if you are looking!

Ms. Kay is a wonderful wonderful person. She is optimistic, compassionate, and loving. We have four little ones that range from 1-7 years old and she is great with all of them. I would strongly recommend Ms. Kay!

Kay is a wonderful babysitter. She has looked after our three boys and they all loved here. We felt very comfortable with Kay, and enjoyed our evening out knowing the children were in experienced hands. I asked the boys the next day about their night with her and they all thought she was really fun because she wanted to play with them! I highly recommend Kay.

Our two boys (3 and 1) love Ms. Kay. She sent us pictures while we were out of the boys playing outside and in the bathtub. The picture in the bathtub didn't even seem like our kids because they were so calm and BOTH smiling! They were both fast asleep when we got home and slept in this morning. Our older son told us how much fun he had with his new "friend"!

My two year old son would get so excited when Miss Kay came to play with him. My husband and I always knew he was in good hands with her. The only reason we no longer see her is because we moved back to the mainland. If I could I would have brought her with us!

Mrs. Kay is amazing and such a blessing to our family. My daughter gets so excited when I tell her that Mrs. Kay is coming over to watch her. When my husband and I are out, we know that our daughter is in goods hands. I would highly recommend Mrs. Kay to anyone. She's like my daughter's 3rd grandma.

I found Kay here on Sittercity and from the moment we met, I knew she was going to be a great fit for my daughter. She began sitting when my daughter was only a couple months old and she was fantastic! Sometimes Anne can be grumpy in the evenings, but Kay was able to soothe her and entertain her through. She texts me photos and updates while I'm out too. Kay is always on time and considerate. You can tell that she really cares for the children that she sits and I love that she's a grandmother herself. I cannot recommend a sitter more highly and I am so happy to have found Kay!

Kay is an amazing babysitter! I have used Kay on occasion for almost a year. She is so great with my kids and more importantly my kids LOVE her. I'm very glad we found her!

Kay has been sitting for our family for several months now. She is truly a professional. My children (x3) love it when she shows up to watch them. She is a blessing for us! I have no worries when I'm out that our children are in the best care.
