We were fortunate enough to have family help us until our son was eight months. That's when our son was lucky enough to start at Kim's Home Away from Home. It's like he didn't skip a beat. He was so loved and fell into a great schedule with the help of Kim! Her love for our child makes the transition so much easier, and our son lights up when he see hers which is all a momma needs to know he is in good hands. She has helped with milestones and teaches sign language which is just amazing. Her class size is just the perfect amount to make me feel comfortable! Have recommended her to other friends and hope she has a spot available for our future children! Consider yourself lucky if she is able to care for your child!

Kim started keeping our girl at 3 months when I had to go back to work. As a first time mom, it was important to me that my baby got plenty of attention since she would be starting childcare so young. After looking at many larger daycare facilities, I found Kim's Home Away from Home to be a breath of fresh air. It is so nice to have someone who is loving and passionate about her work care for your child. I felt comfortable almost immediately upon meeting Kim and knew she was going to be a great fit for us. Our girl took to Kim right away and after just a few weeks she was all smiles each morning when I dropped her off. Kim is very accommodating to schedules, feeding preferences, and individualized care for babies. She has also helped my girl get on a healthier sleep schedule! Daycare has been such an easy and comfortable transition for both me and my baby and we are so grateful for Miss Kim!

Where to even begin?!?! I wish I could give Kim 10 stars! I am a first time mom and cannot put into words how truly blessed I am to have the privilege of dropping my baby off at her house every single day. Her family is wonderful and they all love on our baby like she is one their own. We've been with Kim for a little over two months now, and she still sends picture and text updates throughout the day - always catching my baby's smiles which makes my day! Her advice and direction has also been extremely helpful to us as new parents. I've been able to ask her anything at any time and she knows exactly what to do or what changes to make in the best interest of our little one. It takes a truly special person to care for these little ones as passionately and perfectly as she does. Kim is fabulous and it's been such a pleasure working with her and becoming part of her family along the way. @Kim Save a spot for baby #2! :)

I feel so secure and comfortable knowing my little one is with Ms. Kim during the day. She takes wonderful care of my baby girl and works hard with her to see that she reaches all of her important milestones when she is supposed to! My daughter and Kim have formed a loving bond and I am so comforted knowing that my child is happy, loved and learning during the day, when I am not with her. I can see that this is the case with every other child Kim takes care of. Kim's house is beautiful and clean and she has a fantastic playroom for the babies. I truly believe that my child would not be as advanced as she is today if it weren't for Kim! Highly recommend!

I feel so lucky to have found Kim! My daughter loved spending the day with her and would run up to give her kisses the minute we walked in the door. Leaving your child with someone else is always stressful at the beginning, but it was much easier to do when she was so obviously loved and cared for while I was at work. Kim is thoughtful and loving with both the parents and kids she works with and I the pictures she would send me while I was away were invaluable. You truly couldn't find a better care provider!

Can't say enough good things about Kim! Leaving a new baby to go back to work is hard, but she made us feel so comfortable and welcome that the transition was easy. She sends texts and picture updates throughout the day so you always know what your baby is up to and how they're doing. We initially had another day care picked out but with the waiting list we had about 6 months we needed to fill. After just a few weeks we decided to give up our spot on the waiting list for the other place so our baby could stay with Kim. She works with all her kiddos on their developmental skills such as sitting, crawling, walking, and even works to teach them some baby sign language. We love that our son gets to be in a home environment while he's so little with lots of extra cuddle time and care. We also love that he gets to learn some socialization skills with the few other kids she watches, without being exposed to a whole school worth of other kids and their extra potential germs. She's so good with our son and we know he loves her as he gives her a big smile every morning when he gets dropped off. Makes it easier to drop off knowing he's someplace he enjoys with someone he loves! We will bring all future children to Miss Kim for their first 18 months, have sung her praises to our friends and family, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for great home care for their baby for an affordable price!

We love LOVE love Kim!!! I had so much anxiety about going back to work and leaving my six-week-old baby. Kim made this transition SO much easier, which means everything to a new mom. She has helped us with getting our daughter on a schedule, helped her reach developmental milestones and has really been there when we need advise. Kim sends pictures and updates throughout the day - which is amazing and so comforting to see how happy my daughter is with her and the other kiddos. We feel like we are a part of our daughter's day, even when we're not there.

Kim truly cares for our daughter and there is no greater relief than knowing your child is in great hands. Kim is absolutely AMAZING!! We could not ask for a better caregiver!

I was super anxious going back to work and putting my 12 week old daughter in day care. Kim made this transition so much easier on me. When I leave my daughter with Kim, I know that she will get the same amount of love and attention that you would expect from a family member. I also know that she is in the hands of an experienced competent caregiver. When Kim sends me pictures of my girl throughout the day, I can see that she is happy and engaged, and constantly learning through play. Kim has also been very helpful about getting my daughter on a proper nap schedule, introducing solids, working on crawling/sitting/etc. We are so lucky to have found her, and I would recommend Kim's Home Away from Home without any reservations. It has truly become a home away from home for my daughter.

We love Kim! She made the transition of going back to work much easier by being so welcoming and kind...to both my daughter and I. The personal touches like pictures and texts during the day are especially great. Knowing I have someone who truly cares about our daughter taking care of her during the day makes all the difference. We couldn't be happier and truly lucked out! I would 100% recommend Kim to anyone looking for great care.

We absolutely love Kim! Our daughter really enjoys being at Kim's, where she gets lots of one on one care. Since the beginning, Kim has followed our preferred schedule, often times making suggestions that have improved our daily routines. She really works with the kids on helping them to reach important developmental milestones Like others have said, our baby comes home smelling like Kim so I know she has been snuggled and loved on during the day. You can tell Kim loves all the kids in her care. She will often text or call during weekends and evenings to check on our daughter and during the day when our daughter is in her care, we get lots of pictures and updates, which I love! You wouldn't get that personal relationship and level of attention from a big daycare center. When I first returned back to work, I had such a hard time leaving my daughter in someone else's care, but Kim and her husband provided all the reassurance we needed that our child was in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Kim if you're looking for that "home away from home" feeling from your childcare provider!

Kim was referred to us by a friend, and I don't know what we would do without her. I feel like she truly loves and cares for our daughter, and often checks on her after hours and on the weekends, when she isn't feeling well. Kim has been a great parenting advisor to us, and gives me confidence that while I'm at work, my child is being well cared for. My daughter often come home smelling like Kim, which shows me that she has been snuggled frequently during the day, which I love. :)

Kim is amazing!! Our son LOVES going over there and every time we drop him off he just smiles and smiles!! As a working mom, its the HARDEST to leave your baby, but Kim makes the transition a lot easier. It wouldn't be the same if we were going to a regular daycare. She sends pics and updates all throughout the day (which makes me SO happy)! That kind of attention you could not get anywhere else. I feel great about taking my son there b/c I know that he will get all the love he needs but still get a social environment with other children. Her house is so clean and set up perfectly for childcare. Our son is learning new things everyday and Kim is there to capture it all. She wants you to be involved as much as possible even though you can't actually be there.

There is NOTHING like being confident and feeling good about your child's caregiver - and Kim makes us feel 100% that he is in great hands!!

Kim has been everything we were looking for in a childcare provider. We have been so happy with her! We know our son is in great hands and in a great environment every day. We can tell she truly cares about our son and enjoys what she does. She teaches them, reads to them, plays, and lets us know everything that he did along with pictures throughout the day. It means the world to us that we found someone that we trust will take great care of our baby. Caregivers like this are hard to find. I would absolutely recommend Kim.

We do not know what we would do without Kim! I am so happy to have found her by chance on care.com and that she had a spot open for our little girl. Kim is absolutely wonderful with the kids and truly has their best interests at heart. One thing (of MANY) I love is that she really works with the children on their developmental milestones - which is so important at these young ages. I love that they get undivided attention from her rather than being in a group of 10+ kids where you may lose out on some of that special love and attention. Plus she sends pictures throughout the day which certainly soothes this new mom's separation anxiety! =) She's like one of our family and I would wholeheartedly recommend Kim to anyone!

I found Kim on a whim and a prayer one week after returning to work from maternity leave. My original sitter gave up last minute. My son was then 3 months old. Kim was very inviting and professional from the start. She has the heart of a mother and the mind of one as well. She has done well to be as flexible as possible with my crazy schedule and understanding in my times of need. Every time we came to Kim's home my son was excited to see her and her family alike. The kids were always kept preoccupied and interactive with one another. Her home is always clean and the kid's area is the same. I would recommend Kim Newton to anyone I know in a heartbeat. I recently have had to change sitters after 5 months. My only fault with Kim - she doesn't live near me any longer! I will keep her as an occasional sitter from here on, if she will keep me!

Kim is the best caregiver we have used, by far! She truly cares for each of the little ones in her care. Our 14 month-old daughter goes to Kim's house all day, four days each week, and has an absolutely wonderful time. In the morning, she "talks" about her friends that she is going to see at daycare, and doesn't even know that I've left half of the time. Kim keeps an eye on each one of her charges, particularly with any special needs going on at the time (be it diaper rash, sippy cup issues, or dietary phases), and truly goes above and beyond.

We LOVE Kim!!!! She is truly passionate about taking care of children. Her home is a clean, safe, and a fun environment for my son. I feel 100% comfortable leaving him in her care. She will be part of our family for years to come.

Hi all,
I'm so happy I had the chance to find Kim!
I had been looking for a while and had not found any place around here where I would feel comfortable leaving my baby.
When we first met, she gave me a list of references and I called half of it (there was quite a lot). All were very positive. I also dropped by Kim's house unexpected and the house was incredibly clean!
Now it's been 2 months my son goes there 3 times a week for 4h and he just loves going there. Each time he sees the front door he has a big smile on his face! Also Kim sends me pictures of him by text message, it's cute.
She is very flexible on the time schedule, it's very convenient. She's got years of experience with child watch and she is very professional.
Even though I am very protective of my baby (he had lots of problems at birth and we stayed 3 months in hospital) I am never worried to leave him there.

Kim has been watching my 17 month old son for several months now and I have been thrilled with her!!! My son throws himself towards her when we arrive at Kim's house. It makes me happy that my baby is happy and safe there. Kim is a caring and loving nanny and came highly recommended from her previous employers. Her home is immaculately clean and she has lots of age appropriate toys that my baby loves to play with. I highly recommend Kim and would be happy to speak to anyone interested in using Kim as a nanny.

Clearly all of those reviews written within a few days, all towards the same person, are fake.

This completely undermines the reputation of this business.
Reply from Kim's Home Away from Home
Yvette,
I am so sorry to hear that you feel this way. It also hurts me that you gave me 1 star (thus hurting my overall rating) by simply assuming this and without doing any research what so ever.

All of the reviews posted are in fact 100% valid.

They are also available to be contacted as a reference if you or anyone else needs one.

Just let me know.

I have known Kim both personally and professionally for almost 5 years and have seen first hand the commitment and love she gives to those that she cares for. I have three children and they all love to spend time with Ms. Kim! I can trust that her home is always going to be a lot fun and a ery safe environment for my kids and those she in her care. She has been such a blessing to my family and I would highly recommend using her services.

Kim is true blessing!!! She started watching mine in the preschool at 2 months and now out of her home. She is kind and truly loves our children. From day 1 I knew she was in great hands and I totally value her expertise and experience. I feel so lucky to have found her and hope she remains our go to person for years to come. I cannot say enough good things about her or her home!!

We love Kim!! She was my son's preschool teacher, starting when he was 6 months old (he is now 2) and Kim has also taken care of my daughter since she was 3 months old (she is now 10 mths). Kim was a wonderful teacher, and now we use her almost every week for care in her home. Kim is friendly, reliable and experienced. She gives each child the individual attention he/she needs and I never worry about the quality of care. Kim also does an excellent job of communicating with parents, and she is always happy to follow through with any request that I ask. It is obvious that she loves working with children. Her home is always clean and there is plenty of room to play. We are so thankful for her!

Kim is so great! I met Kim through the preschool where she watched my baby. Now we have loved using her help at her home too! Her home is very clean, child-proofed, and lots of space for play. She really gives each child the personal attention they need and keeps the parents well-informed! I also like that she keeps up her accreditations and trainings (as listed above in her profile).
