2005-2006 I went to the USA to work as an au pair with triplets. They where 5 months-17 months. I had sole charge and i did everything like doing their laundry, preparing meals, going to the park, play, sing songs and teach them Dutch songs. Still in touch with the family and they will be happy to give me a reference.

2006-sept 2012 I arrive in the UK in January and started working with twin girls who where 6 months old. I have sole charge for the last 7 years. I do a lot of activities with the kids, when they were younger we went to Hyde park, national history museum, London zoo, playgroup and singing classes. I go swimming, do day trips to Chessington and have a play with them in David Lloyds Raynes Park. I was doing the girls home work take them for swimming lessons and have play dates I did this every day and school drop off and pick ups with the car which the family provided.

Tamara provides exceptional childcare. She is accommodating, flexible and understanding. Her experience and knowledge of children and their development is reassuring and supportive. Our son has settled so well due to Tamaras nurturing setting, we are so grateful that due to his sleep routine there we are now getting a full nights sleep! Such a bonus! He is learning, laughing and coming home grubby and tired which can only be the result of a fun and happy environment. Recommend to anyone and everyone. We can not thank Tamara enough.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Your little boy is a delight to look after. :-)

My little boy started with Tamara when he was 11 months old. He settled in very well and I felt so comfortable leaving him with her. She provides a warm and homely setting and I knew that he would be safe and happy. When I had my second baby, Tamara looked after them both for me on the odd occasion so that I could have a break and my daughter warmed to her straight away. My little boy loved being kept busy with lots of outings to playgroups etc and all the crafts they do back at the house. She is very flexible and accommodating and helps out however she can. We recently moved county so had to leave Tamara, it has been very hard to find a replacement childminder!

We still miss you all.

My son has been going to Tamara for over 2 years now. He has enjoyed all the activities she does with them and has built up a nice little circle of friends. Tamara has always been very accommodating if I have needed extra days covered and I can always rely on her to take him if needed. Tamara is kind and calm with the children and I would highly recommend her.

We will miss him when he goes in September but will def keep in touch. Good luck for the future.

Tamara looked after our daughter for the past 3 months. We knew as soon as we met Tamara and her family that our daughter would fit it with them, and we weren't wrong. Within just a few days our usually timid daughter was jumping out of our arms when we dropped her off. Tamara is friendly, highly organised and gave our daughter great experiences at the various music and play groups, which she loved!

Tamara provided before and after school care for my son. She is always helpful and friendly and great with the children. My son settled invery quickly with the other children in her care. She has been flexible when we needed extra sessions or earlier drop off and later pick up times. She always kept us well informed of any changes or problems. Was always confident my son was in good hands.
