Tara’s Bio

My name is Tara and I am 29 years old.  I have lived in the Austin area (born in California) since I was 7 years old and I love it!  I am currently searching for a wonderful new family (or families) to work with!nanny for one wonderful little boy!!  I am currently working after school with two awesome kids 7 (boy) and 9 (girl).  I love children and absolutely consider what I do to be my career!  I have been doing this for 8 consecutive years now and I still love it just as much as I did when I started.  I am comfortable with children of all ages, and I don't know that I could pick one that I like more than another since all ages offer something different.  I really just love kids and rather than getting job to just pay the bills, or that I may or may not enjoy, I can work with kids instead (which I know I will love!)

Tara did not show up today as planned and she never even called. Really left me in a bind and i missed my class. This was her second chance, the first time she cancelled on me. I would NOT recommend her.

Provider's Response

I am very sorry you feel this way, but I did send you a very long message explaining to you what happened and my apologies for not being able to be there. Just as you have things in your life that are unexpected and you can't plan for, so do I. I had every intention of coming to you that morning, and there were things out of my hands that I could not control.

We love Tara. She has come through for us as a night sitter on several occasions and is always on time and willing to stay as long as we ask.

Do not recommend for 2 yr old boys. She has no experience with them and told me my child was undisciplined and she could not sit for us after sitting for me once and canceling on me twice.

- Laura R.

Provider's Response

Why is it wrong that I was honest with you about how I felt. Would you rather I had continued to watch your son and didn't enjoy the time spent with him? I didn't want that for anyone. The only reason I had to cancel on you was because I was in desperate need of a full time position and told you that from the very beginning. You were clear that you couldn't offer that and I was clear that I needed more.
