Tamiko’s Bio

**LAST MINUTE, OVERNIGHT & DATE NIGHT REQUESTS ARE WELCOMED**
I am a non-smoking childcare professional with over 10 years experience who traded the corporate grind for playdates and tutus.  I am in search for part time evening, weekend or overnight jobs as supplemental income.

I've been with Sittercity for over 5 years and parents love me!  Check out my 5 star reviews!

I've received the Sittercity Background Check Seal of Approval (which is currently expired however, I'm more than happy to have another run)

I reside in North Austin and am willing to travel up to 30 mins from home to care your children.

Experienced with all ages up to 13 (yes, multiples too!) and make every visit to your home a fun filled adventure for your kiddos.

I have no problem with pets and welcome the opportunity to meet your family's furry friends.

Prompt arrival, reliable transportation (which can fit 2 car seats and booster) with full coverage and clean driving record come standard.

Food prep, crafts, positive reinforcement, & lots of loving attention are included free of charge. 
 
I look forward to hearing from your family!

Tamiko took excellent care of our daughter, very trustworthy and reliable. She was available with very short notice, and responded to us immediately with her availability.

Tamiko took great care of our 7 month old baby. She was very professional, good natured, and always returned my calls quickly.

I've been really impressed with Tamiko. She is very professional, responsible and reliable. But best of all she is wonderful with my 11m old baby. I feel very comfortable that he is in safe hands with Tamiko - and he seems to love her company too.

Tamiko was there for us last minute and made me feel very comfortable leaving our 7 month old in her care. She was pleasant and we came home extremely pleased with her care.

We’re thrilled to have found Tamiko to care for our son (4) and daughter (2). She’s warm and fun, yet keeps gentle control over our active children. Plus, we’re very impressed with her professionalism. She always replies quickly (even for last minute appointments) and never arrives late! Highly recommended!

She was great with our two preteen sons, playing tons of boardgames after homework. Tamiko was very quick to repond to my email, asked lots of questions, and was punctual and professional!

Tamiko is very unprofessional. I hired her part time to help take care of my family and 3 days before I was to start my job, she informed me that she had taken a full time position with another family. Imagine my shock! She had seemed so professional during our meetings and never mentioned that the part time job I was offering her was not what she was looking for. In fact, she stated just the opposite. As a result of her unprofessionalism I had to resign as I had no backup child care. So beware that this nanny is not all that she calims to be. I wouldn't want this to happen to someone else.

Provider's Response

Rather than defend myself against this malicious attack, I'll allow my other NUMEROUS 5 star reviews speak for themselves. It would my pleasure to work with you and your family.

Tamiko is just wonderful. She responds very quickly and has great follow up! She touched base with me the day of our appointment and arrived 5 minutes early. When I asked my kids the next day what the thought of her my 5 year old responded "she smiles all the time, she was great".
