Kirsten Harris


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.

Do not do business with this company!

I made a reservation with Kirsten, the owner of this business, for 2 sitters last weekend for Bluesapalooza. We had 4 children (3 of them being 2 years old), so I figured that 2 sitters would be best. Kirsten confirmed my reservation on the telephone and then also send me a written confirmation of my reservation.

The week of our trip, I called her no less than three times and sent her three emails and got NO RESPONSE. MInd you, this is AFTER I paid her the reservation fee and had a written confirmation from her. NO ONE showed up to babysit on the date of our CONFIRMED reservation.

We bought Bluesapalooza tickets in reliance on having babysitters and ended up wasting our hundreds of dollars on tickets. I have never experienced such unprofessionalism in any business, EVER.

Word to the wise, don't do business with this company.

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!

Hi Kirsten - Heather was great. 3 of the kids were sleep and she did a great job with the 2 that were awake - both sets of parents of these kids commented to me that they really thought Heather did a great job. We will definitely use your service the next time we are in Tahoe! Our goal at All About Kids is to make sure you and your family get the most out of your Lake Tahoe vacation so we strive to provide quality Lake Tahoe child care that allows both you and you kids to enjoy yourselves. We have been connecting families with dedicated childcare professionals since 2002 and have relationships with many of the area's top vacation properties.

You asked for feedback on Deb and I can honestly say she was fantastic! She was so great with Owen, our 2 year old, that I asked her to come again the next day. When we arrived home around 4 PM on Wed. Deb and Owen were outside playing and they had been playing for about 1 1/2 hours. She was also really great with the older kids. I would highly recommend her again and if we come back to Tahoe this Winter I would love to book her again! Thank you once again for lining up such a terrific sitter. You have provided a top notch, reliable service and we greatly appreciate it!

As a service to our clients, we have collected a list of suggested activities for families visiting the Lake Tahoe Region. These are not links other businesses have paid to put on here, they are activities I have enjoyed over the years with my family and have heard good things about from clients. If you have experiences and suggestions you would like to share with other families, please e-mail them to A fun easy spot for a picnic, some beach time and playground time located right in Tahoe City.

We have been consistently impressed with your service. You are reliable and responsive. Gemma is great. She is always on time, and we like how she engages Tyler with various art projects and his own toys in innovative ways. We will certainly keep using your service, and have recommended you to the property managers (resort equities) at Northstar. The ability to use our charge card and the pdf receipts is also professional and greatly appreciated!
