Kay was wonderful for our day visiting with friends. She was timely, engaging with our daughter, took her to the park & library and our 2.5 year old loved the time she spent with Kay. We wished we lived here so that we could use her again.

We hired Kay fo care for our 10 month old. Kay was very timely, professional and incredibly self sufficient. Kay has a great personality and is a very interesting person. Our main piece of advice is that Kay has a lot of strong opinions which is a good, however we found at times it was overwhelming. We did find that even if we said no to something she would keep pushing the topic to make her point know. This was not a good mix with us personally and at times I had to ask her to stop. We would have preferred more interaction and play with our baby who is the same as any 10 month old lots of energy. But for the short time we knew she was well looked after. However, if you are someone who is looking for a Nanny who drives more of the direction of the child care based on their experience and not afraid to let you know she disagrees she is perfect for you. Kay definetly will advocate for what she thinks is best because she does care. Kay would be brilliant with older kids who are more self sufficient than a younger baby. Unfortunately we were just not a good fit together. Kay is definitely trust worthy.

I’ve been using Kay to help with the care of my Mom and Dad, who both suffer from memory problems. She’s been amazing with them, so much that I’m using her on a regular basis now! Kay is patient, kind and a great companion to both of them. She’s reliable and trustworthy, I highly recommend her!!

She is on time. Very organized, and love to get things done. She left a huge impression with my 2 and 3 year-old kids, and they still talk about her till date. We are still in regular contact with her, and she comes in to babysit every now and then. Strictly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a nanny/babysitter.

We had a temp position for Kay and she was amazing. She was great with our 2 & 3 year old's. She was dependable, on-time and most importantly cared about our kids. She was great at engaging with them and kept them active. She made meals and cleaned up. She played, went to the park and our kids had a great time. Wish we had a position for her permanently . In a small amount of time she became a member of a family. I would recommend hiring her.

Kay watched our 3 & 5 year olds for an evening out. She was prompt and very personable upon arrival. She made them dinner, played games with them, and read them stories. The children were very happy with her the next morning. We would hire her again.

Kay took care of my 3 preschoolers so my husband and I could go out and take a nighttime cooking class. She was friendly, attentive, and immediately set me and my kids at ease. The house was kept clean, and my kids said they had a wonderful time with her. Would definitely enlist Kay’s services again! Thanks!

Kay sat our 4 kids so my wife and I could have a night out. The moment she walked in and starting chatting it was as if we have known her forever. She did an amazing job with the kids and they loved having her around. We will definitely be calling her again next time we need a sitter!

Kay is very professional and reliable. My kids enjoy spending time with hr and she enjoys spending time with my kids. I trust her and I’m sure we’ll have a long term business relationship.

We partnered Kay to care for our 6-month old baby and we are glad that we were able to meet her. She is kind, on time, and reliable for the given tasks. She also doesn't hesitate to give her opinions when things require our attention. Kay goes beyond than what is asked for her - she would voluntarily pick up and help with household chores. When faced with challenges as the 1st time parent, we sincerely value her guides and tips which she has accumulated from her past experiences. She always discusses our parenting methods and helps us to achieve goals such as sleep training and feeding routines. We would highly recommend Kay to anyone who is looking for a quality care-taker.

We (myself, husband and our baby) are so happy with her. Our husband works at home so he can see how she interacts with our 5month old daughter. She takes care of our baby like her own. Sometimes better than us. She plays with our daughter, takes her out for a walk, and helps with her nap time (our spoiled little one won't take a nap in a crib). While she takes care of our spoiled baby, she also takes care of baby laundry and bottles. She is always on time and comes with smile. She always respects the way we want. She is a fast learner so we did not spend much time for showing her things. We call her auntie Kay. I am happy to be a reference for her. Oh, one more thing, she speaks fluent Englsih and Korean which has been great plus for us as want our baby exposed to both languages.
