I really appreciate Kristin's flexibility with my schedule. This was my son's first time at a sitter that wasn't a family member. We are new to the state so it was important to find someone we both felt comfortable with. My son really enjoyed her kids and I would think to thank them for entertaining him. I would definitely use her again and recommend if you need a reliable sitter.

Kristin is a great sitter for our children and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The kids really enjoy their time at her home and we feel confident that they are in great hands. She is thorough with informing us of daily activities and lets us know if there are any concerns. Another great thing is that our children needed care for one day a week and Kristin is able to provide that to us.

With both my husband and my families living out of state, we never had a babysitter. Finally 4 years later we looked at Sittercity and found Kristin. She was amazing - our 2 boys loved it. My youngest (10 months) has a hardtime being away from me and didn't even notice I was gone. I would definitely recommend Kristin - she is great with kids!

Kristin was awesome!! I needed her 2 days before and she was there for me in the emergency situation I had. The kids loved it and had fun!! They asked if they could go every weekend. Thank you so much Kristin I really appreciated it!!!

Kristin was great! We were nervous because this was our first time using sittercity, but I am so glad that we found her. She responds promptly and and gave us all of the info we needed about her services. My kids just loved having her as a sitter, they thought it was vacation! I would recommend her to anyone, she is very responsible and professional and we plan on using her many times in the future.

My wife and I were pressed for a baby sitter after our usual sitter had a conflict. Kristin offered her services and proved a great find. Our children had a great time at her home and were sound asleep when we arrived -- a sure sign of comfort with an environment. I plan to contact Kristin first for future baby sitting needs!

Kristin watched my 8 month old while I worked a late night shift. When I came to pick him up he was happy and playing, and looked like he didn't want to leave. It's nice to be at work without having to worry so much. Thanks Kristin, we will see you soon!

We love this sitter. The first time our kids met Kristin they knew they wanted to go back to her house. She has everything you can think of for the kids to do. She is professional and organized. Her kids are amazing as well. Very well behaved. We plan on using Kristin for as long as she'll have us. Thanks Kristin.

Kristin is amazing! She is organized, professional, caring and very flexible. There are many toys for the kids to play with and a great backyard to play in. We are very lucky to have found her. Thank you Kristin for taking such great care of our son. Shari Kelly

Kristin is absolutely wonderful with my daughter. She's been watching her since she was about 3 months old and she is now 1 and I continue to use her and plan on it for as long as I need a sitter! She has a welcoming, fun personality and lots of toys and games for the kids. My daughter always comes home happy so I feel secure leaving her with Kristin for as long as I need. I have twins due this summer and plan on using her for their care as well. She is very trustworthy and caring when it comes to watching your kids and I would recommend her to everyone! Definitely 5 stars : )

Dear Parents, We found Kristen's listing online when looking for childcare, and it has been such wonderful experience for all of us! She provides childcare in her home in Ellington, which is spacious, clean, and well-equipped for playtime! All kinds of toys there inspire imaginative play, and she also has a big yard in a nice quiet neighborhood that's perfect for outside play, complete with swings and a climber. Kristen herself is very calm, competent, and caring of the children in her charge. Her experience includes being a parent of two wonderful children, as well as working in a superior center-based daycare. That center provided learning curriculums for all ages. They also have extremely high standards for new hires at their center, and Kristen is an exemplary example of professional-standard childcare provider in a home-based setting. She is also very flexible with scheduling, and can provide childcare on short-notice. Her rates are very fair, and are agreed upon on a case by case basis with each parent. Parents, have no fears! Your child will be in great hands with Kristen. They will enjoy their time there, and willingly go back again for more!

My two girls (16 months old and 4 yrs old) had a blast. When I returned to pick the girls up my baby waved hello and went back to playing bubbles, and my 4 yr old asked if I could come back later! Kristin keep track of what they ate, when they rested and could tell me what they did the entire time. I was nervous at first, but was so glad to find my children were happy and comfortable in Kristin's care.

Kristin is a sweet and caring sitter. She has an obvious interest in keeping the kids happy. Her home is clean and her own children well behaved. The best part for us has been her flexibility. She has saved us on several occasions.

Kristin is great with kids and super nice! She's extremely responsive to each child's individual requirements and provides a daily log about their activities/moods/concerns. Her house without a doubt caters to help provide a fun and nurturing atmosphere. I will definitely use Kristin's help on a continued basis and recommend her as a babysitter for kids of all ages.

Kristin is nice. So are her kids and husband. Her schedule is quite flexible. We were able to drop the kids off at her place at the last minute on a few occasions.
