I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Our son has been cared for by Tara since June of 2021. We really struggled to find infant care when my maternity leave ended in May. We were worried we were going to have to take whatever we could get and that did end up being the case BUT it worked out a thousand times better than I could have imagined.

Tara has the experience this new mom needs. She is always very honest with us and great at answering our questions with regards his care, parenting, illness, feeding, behavior, etc... My son absolutely adores her, he LOVES daycare and is thriving. We both work very full time jobs. She has our son 9 hours a day, 5 days a week. What she says matters to us because she KNOWS our son really really well.

We lucked out big time that she had a spot when she did and trust her 100% with our most prized person in this world. We highly recommend Tara.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We used Tara for about six months before finding new care. We did have a child who was sort of difficult when it came to sleeping, but Tara wasn't very open to working with us on ways to get him to sleep alone. There was always lots of TV time. Drop off, pick up or during random stop ins. Being a breastfeeding mom I tried to make it easy for Tara with providing directions on how to properly feed a breastfed baby, but many of times she would complain about how much and how long it took him to eat. There was always a battle on how much my child should be eating and how fast he should be eating. There was always a tension. She also was not respectful of parenting choices, and on several occasions talked poorly of other parents.
