Khaliah was great. She was with our 18 month old son for the full day, and things went so smoothly. She was so thoughtful upon arrival, offering to take shoes off and washing her hands immediately. She asked questions to make sure she had all the right instructions including asking about his favorite activities. She took notes throughout the day, and sent me a few text message updates with videos and photos. Even though it was her first time meeting my son, he ate breakfast, lunch and went down for a nap like a champ. He was clearly comfortable with her. Definitely will be booking again!

We had a wonderful experience! Khaliah communicated ahead of time, showed up on time with a big smile and had with a bag of fun things like bubbles/paint. Also brought a little speaker with lights that changed color and a solid kids-jam mix, of course dance parties occurred throughout the day. Khaliah also led outside play time games.

Khaliah communicated before our appointment to introduce herself and ask if there is anything she should know about the kids. She arrived on time and was enthusiastic meeting the kids. She did tidy up a bit. She played a couple of games with them, however I do feel like she relied too much on IPad and screen time during the 6 hours. After I asked her to take away the iPads from the kids (since they already had IPad time before she arrived) she let them back on them a second time and they were still on them when I came home 2 hours later. This was in addition to the movie they watched, too.

Khaliah was great! It was my first time using Chime so I was a little nervous but she texted me right away to see if I had any questions. She showed up right on time. She is super nice, has a very calming spirit and knows a ton about babies. I knew my baby was in great hands! I will definitely be using her again!

Khaliah was very communicative during the entire process, from moments after booking her and throughout the day with my 4 year old son. She is very patient and has a calming presence.

She was so great with my LO! I had never used this app before and had never left my LO with anyone but her grandparents, so I was pretty nervous. Khaliah had such a calming energy and my LO took right to her which put me at complete ease. She even sent me pics and updates throughout the day. I was very pleased!

Khaliah was great. She arrived on time and was very comfortable with my twins who are special needs (autism). I would love to use her again but we were only visiting Chicago.
