Is your child too sick to go to school but you can't miss work? Is the nanny going on vacation? School is out but work isn’t? Is it a Snow Day?
THERE THERE BACKUP
CARE IS THERE
WHEN YOU CAN'T BE!
We will send one of our CPR certified, rigorously vetted, COVID vaccinated nannies, to your home to care for your child and you can breathe easy knowing that safe, reliable care is on the way.
Why We're Different:
Unlike other care providers, we will never send a stranger to your home. In addition to our rigorous background check, reference check, social media screen and CPR/First Aid verification, all of our nannies have been through at least one phone interview and an in-person interview. If an interviewee does not meet all There There Backup Care's high standards, they are not accepted into our program and will not be sent to care for any child.
We are committed to finding the best and most quality care for your children.
What Parents Say
"The experience with the service was terrific. Easy to use and get going. Tess was nice, punctual and certainly approachable. [My child] seemed to have a good time with her. I can say I’m pleased. Thanks”
"I’ve known Kris for over 20 years. I had just started a new job and as I drove up to drop off my son at daycare, I realized it was a holiday and they were closed! Kris had told me about her new business and watched my son at the last minute for me, saving the day, before their business was even up and running! I trust her completely with my child and I was very thankful she was available when I was in a pinch.”
"This service is amazing. Kris, the owner, answered my call right away and had someone to watch my sick daughter the next day within a few hours. Kris is very professional and thorough and my daughter LOVED her! She sent me photos while I was at work and gave me an update of the day (including food eaten, activities, and medicine given). I am very impressed and grateful that a business like this exists! Will definitely be using them again :)"
"Professional, reliable & amazing!"
They came to the rescue when our 2 year old was too sick to attend her home daycare yesterday- Kris is LOVELY, professional, reliable and amazing. Our daughter has real separation anxiety from me and she absolutely warmed up to Kris instantly. That does NOT happen often, but Kris is just that incredible Coming from a Mama, I highly recommend There There Backup Care!
"She (Jo) was fantastic. I appreciate you being able to send someone in such a short notice."
"Kris was absolutely amazing!!! I had a very important last minute meeting this morning, and all of my regular sitters were gone for the holidays. Kris went out of her way to help me out, and I was able to get on with my day having full confidence my baby would be well taken care of. I would HIGHLY recommend the service to ANYONE!!!"
"It is such a great option for working parents. We were able to get a full-day sitter for our sick 3 year old with only a half day's notice. Kris was professional and did an amazing job. Highly recommend!"
"Holly did a fantastic job watching an energetic 7 year old, and a high maintenance 5 month old, for several days and many hours. I am so lucky to have found Holly to take care of my children! I would 100% hire Holly again. Thank you Holly!"
"Trustworthy & responsible!"
As parents to 2 under 2, my husband and I desperately needed a night out! I wanted to have someone who was trustworthy, responsible, certified in CPR and first aid and above all, a mom! Someone who gets my little crazy kiddos and gives them some tender loving kindness because they’ve been there themselves with their littles! I had heard of There There Backup Care so I decided to give it a try and wasn’t disappointed. As soon as Kris showed up, my 20 month old wanted her to hold him immediately! She had such a warm presence and my kids were so happy, evident in all of the pictures I got while we were out. She even returned the house cleaner than it was when we left! I’m so thankful for this service (even if you don’t have sick kids) and I will be recommending them to everyone!
"She did a great job with my child! Thanks for accommodating my same day needs."
"...awesome, time efficient, reliable resource that any parent would be glad to have. I personally have used them on several occasions to watch my daughter when she was running a fever, or unable to attend daycare. I was able to feel secure knowing my daughter was well taken care of with constant communication from the sitter and pictures upon request. I would highly recommend this service to anyone in need of a trusted well based childcare service."
So glad we found There There Backup Care! Kris has been a life saver!! She came on short notice to watch our daughters when they were too sick for pre-k and daycare. They were each sick on different days. Our 4 year old loved Kris so much she was sad when little sister ‘got’ to stay home with her and she didn’t! Kris even braved a snow storm to come to our house!! We also had Holly come a different time and she was great - thank you!

"Everything went well!"
... everything went well! My youngest, Colton, was mad at me for sending Jo home while he was sleeping. He was expecting to play with her when he woke up I guess! Haha.
I’m blown away with our experience!! They went above and beyond my expectations! We used them twice this week and both times were so effortless, the communication was exceptional and the care for my sick baby was outstanding, even better than family!! Kris and Jo were so kind and loving right when we needed them most. I can’t say enough good things about these gals! Loved all the updates and loving my little girl got & even an extremely detailed activity log at the end of the day! And they came through for me last minute when I was in a pinch. We will definitely use them again, their card is now on my fridge!"
"Jo was great! The biggest thing was sitters - I'm sure you can relate - is the vibe I get from them. Jo seemed sweet and competent and that's the best I can ask for. She gave me regular updates which I appreciate and asked questions when she needed to. I love what they offer. My husband and I are both self-employed and I have always worked for small businesses, including my family's; you are a rockstar at what you do. I'm very pleased with every interaction I've had and will continue asking you if you have nannies available when I need them :)."
"We needed help with caring for our son who had been sick and couldn't go to daycare. We called for a 2-day job to help so our son's mom and myself could continue working. I give this experience 5 stars as we were completely amazed and satisfied with the professionalism and love Kris gave our son. He enjoyed every minute of this experience and I look forward to hiring this company again.”
"Jo was great with the girls. We were so appreciative of your service. It was very nice to get updates throughout the day. ...keep up the great communication, it made me feel at ease."
My husband and I woke up horribly sick at 3 AM last night. I called Sick Kid Sitters expecting to leave a message, but Kris answered and got me all set up with a babysitter for this morning. Jo was so awesome. She showed up with gatorades and crackers for us and took great care of our kids while we rested. I tried to tip her at the end and she wouldn’t accept it. Highly recommend this service.
"Loved getting picture updates!"
"Kris did a great job taking care of my 4 month old while I was at work. Loved getting picture updates and the icing on the cake was the activity tracker she left."
