Kirsten Harris

Owner

I started nannying in college and although I had no previous kid experience, I instantly felt comfortable around kids and knew I wanted to pursue a career in the childcare profession. After graduating from University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in Human Resource Management and Tourism, I moved back to Tahoe, where I had grown up skiing with my family and began working for a local family as a full time nanny.

I quickly recognized the challenge vacationing families faced in trying to find reliable care for their children and decided to start All About Kids in 2002. I am now the proud parent of a beautiful and energetic five year old boy and now more than ever understand what parents go through in making the decision to leave their child with a stranger. It is my promise to my clients that I would never send anyone to watch your children that I would not be thrilled to have watching my own son. It is also my goal to do everything in my power to accommodate parents and children to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your babysitting or vacation experience more enjoyable.

We were recently in Tahoe (North Shore) for a week over Christmas. This is the second time we've used All About Kids and have had a great experience. Alyssa was our sitter for the week for our 18 month old so that we could go skiing with the big kids. She was amazing - super kind, brought over fun activities each day for our little guy, and was happy to help clean up. Overall I would highly recommend All About Kids to anyone in the Tahoe area. Kirsten is easy to work with and super responsive. We will definitely be using then again soon.

Kirsten was responsive and helpful, even at Tahoe's busiest time of year. I appreciated her professionalism in understanding our needs and getting care booked. The sitter, Kelly, communicated in advance to confirm, arrived on time, asked appropriate questions, and handled the group of kids like a true pro. She even cleaned up the house, which was truly above and beyond, since we had been having a birthday toast before we left and there was extra (non-kid related) mess around. The only downside was the high price, but we had a large number of kids and were booking during the busiest time of the year, so it was understandable (though I did have sticker shock!). Since the pricing was clearly communicated and transparent, I don't think it would be fair to ding the star rating, so 5 stars stands. Also, after having the sitter there and seeing the quality of care and attention to detail, it felt like a value. Thank you for offering a great service!

I didn't check on Yelp reviews before booking All About Kids, so I'm not sure about all the negative reviews, however we had a great experience. All About Kids was recommended to us by my brother's wedding planner at Squaw. From the beginning Kirsten was very professional and easy to contact. She dealt well with all my crazy mom questions.

Our sitter, Ashtan, was punctual (early ;) ) and always communicating by text or phone call (she checked in to confirm the day before too). She brought toys for my son to play with, which was a nice surprise since we were on vacation without alot to play with. She was flexible and easy going, which was helpful given the complicated logistics of a family wedding. Most importantly my son LOVED her! He has only ever been with one nanny and me, so he has a very hard time warming up to strangers, but he adored Ashtan.

Everything went great!

I have been using this service for 3 years, and they are fantastic. I have a never had a bad sitter from All About Kids. They are always young, fun, energetic women who relate very well to my kids. They have never once been late, and I always get a phone call from the girls a day prior to service to confirm. I have high energy kids, and they are always happy and tired when I return. Babysitters come prepared with crayons and toys and often they offer to help out around the house when the kids are asleep.

Kirsten, who runs the service, is fantastic. I am not the most organized person in the world, and I often book last minute, and she always comes through for me. I have recommended All About Kids to my friends and on listservs for moms - they are fantastic.

Customer Testimonials

All About Kids has been an excellent & reliable resource for us whenever our Grandchildren come to Tahoe. Our kids have each been thrilled with the relationships they have developed with Kirsten and the other child care experts over the years. We feel very fortunate to have All About Kids available to us.


Thank you so much for sending us Adit, she was awesome, I wish I could take her back to San Francisco! I will be sure and pass on to the concierge staff our wonderful experience using your service, and will tell all of my friends who head this way. We will be sure and use your services again, as we visit Squaw Valley frequently.


We had All About Kids help us watch our kids, ages 4, 2 and 8 months while we skied at Squaw Valley. We had a fantastic experience, and our kids actually still ask about our sitter! The service was able to meet us in the morning at our condo, feed them, bring them out to the snow to play, and even meet us for lunch with all their snow gear skis and all! Kirsten brought books, crafts, and games for the kids to play in the condo, and she was able to get all their ski gear together and transport them on the shuttle to the slopes.

It was absolutely amazing to have such a flexible and CAPABLE sitter. We felt very reassured after seeing her in action, and knowing that the kids were not just sitting bored in the condo while we were out was a great relief. We will definitely use their services again, likely their on-slope services as the older kids are in the mountain with us now, and we give them ten thumbs up!!! (Two parents and three kids!)


Thank you so much!
I was impressed by your professionalism (especially after being stood up by the other service!) We really like Gemma. She was quiet, calm and intuitive about what Mak needed. It made it easy to relax on the slopes knowing he was being well cared for. We especially like the age-appropriate toys (new toys are always better than your old ones as you know). We'll be back in early Feb. and will be sure to use you again! You have made us loyal subscribers.


Thanks so much for all of your help! It was a great week and awesome party, and both of your sitters were great. Shanda was really sweet and was a pro at distracting my 3-year-old from crying as we left, and handled all three with ease. I didn't have as much interaction with Gemma, but she also seemed really capable and nice. We will definitely use you the next time we come up for skiing or in the summer time.
Thanks again. Your service is awesome, and I've told everyone I know about it!

We want to thank you so much for such a terrific experience. Dana was amazing! Our kids loved her and they were so excited to see her every morning and play w/ her all day. This is the first trip that we were able to go all day and snowboard and know that the kids were having just as much fun as we were. We had a bad experience with another nanny service in Tahoe on our last trip. We had made arrangements for a sitter before we left home and when we arrived in Tahoe and called to confirm, we could not get in touch with anyone.
