Kim’s Bio

As a caregiver for more than 7 years now, I've been given a myriad of responsibilities, including: meal planning, family manager, schedule coordination, grocery shopping, cooking, administering medications, homework, tutoring, laundry, errand assisting, light housekeeping, school pickups, play date scheduling and facilitating, drop off and pick up of school and after school activities, establishing and assisting in creating sleep habits and patterns, teaching/enforcing importance of responsibilities and potty training.
I believe that I'm fun and encouraging for children, yet I'm also able to maintain a certain level of discipline and respect between us when needed. I an active person, so  I enjoy being on the go and especially outdoors as much as possible. Long walks, trips to the parks and play dates are always fun, and I also take initiative in finding and/or creating fun things for us to do. I'm willing to take your children anywhere that you're comfortable with, and have many times taken kids on public transportation to get to new and fun places for us. I like to incorporate 'lessons' into our days whenever possible, including educational, manners-related and in regards to healthy food habits. I believe I'm a very capable, fun-loving person that your child would enjoy, and hopefully, benefit, from spending time with. I love kids and truly enjoy spending time with them - I believe that passion and dedication shows in my everyday interactions with them. I am CPR certified; I have my license, and a safe car. I have both references and letters of recommendation that I would be happy to forward to you. Thank you for taking the time to read my information, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Kim has been babysitting our 2-year-old daughter since August of 2009 and our daughter loves her. They are always on the go, Kim sets up playdates with our friends' nannies and kids and will take her on the bus or taxi to play places around town or walks to the zoo weather permitting.

With a toddler, I feel its important to have a caretaker who teaches your child while playing as well as someone who sets guidelines and Kim does a great job with both. She is warm and patient, yet firm when necessary, which is essential when raising a toddler. Kim has also done a great job enforcing our philosophies on nutrition and manners (using her utensils, saying please and thank you, etc) and sticking to nap time and bed times. I think she genuinely has fun with children and enjoys them, she has a great sense of humor and is very trustworthy.

No Show

We talked extensively over the phone and set up an interview. We touched base multiple times to confirm time/date. She was only available over a weekend where we were supposed to be out of town but stayed as we were very interesting in meeting her. She didn't show. No call, text, email. I texted her multiple times and she never responded. Very unprofessional. How can you trust a nanny like that?!

Provider's Response

I don't recall this instance, unfortunately, but at the time this review was given, I had been out of the state for weeks, travelling with a family I work for, and did not return until mid August, so I can only assume this is from months earlier when I was looking for new clients and had a very sudden death in the family. I can assure you that any lack of response was unintentional. The references I have from long-term clients and former ones whom I still maintain close relationships with will , I believe show my dependability and professionalism.
