"Trustworthy, prompt, compassionate, informed and unbelievably experienced and knowledgeable!"

Natalie de Boursac

"Tanya has been a lifesaver and a godsend for our family. She has been fantastic with our 6 week old baby from the moment she walked in our home. She instantly became a trusted member of our 'village'. Without any family in NZ, we were clueless and struggling hard. Tanya jumped into our world, rolled up her sleeves and did everything within her power to help us. She helped us look after our son, better than we could have done ourselves and also tirelessly worked to help make our lives easier when she wasn't even with us. She continued checking in on us on her days off, offering support,guidance, books and helping us implement a routine for days without her. She helped us find doctors, chiropractors and helped us identify a reflux issue with our baby that made him extremely difficult and cry all the time. Every time Tanya came to our house, I knew me and our baby would be better off. She handled a VERY difficult baby with smiles and grace and I knew he was in excellent hands, always, which allowed me the time to recover. It sounds dramatic to say she was a life saver, but for this mum with PND and without family support- she really was! We are infinitely thankful for what Tanya has done for our family, grateful doesn't even cover it!"

'The boys really liked their time with Tanya'

Cavan Boyle

"What a great job done! Three full on boys taken care of for 2 days and a night. Tanya was very impressive with keeping them active, entertained and keeping me updated. The boys really liked their time with Tanya and slept heavily those nights. Anyone with boys will know that's what it's all about. I will definitely continue to use her services"

'Tanya was punctual and friendly and showed incredible initiative'

Camille Keenan & Dustin Clare

"I found Tanya through her website when we came to Auckland for work. I really needed someone professional that I could rely on to look after my 2 year old son Darcy in surroundings that were foreign to him, and Tanya was absolutely perfect. She was punctual and friendly and showed incredible initiative - from finding our hotel room to taking Darcy out for ice cream to sending me photos and updates. I felt completely at ease knowing that Tanya was looking after Darcy and I would fully recommend her to anyone in need of child care services."

"Your superb attention and care of Daniel was outstanding"

Jackie & Jeff Alexander

What Tanya did through the day was amazing. Although I was working she kept me connected with a series of awesome photos & texts and I could see for myself the wonderful array of stimulating activities she did with my 17 month old and more importantly, how HAPPY he was. It was peace of mind and I was able to focus happily on the task at hand so a win win for me.

And at 6 oclock I was handed back a happy, settled and relaxed boy who happily hit the hay and slept like... well, a baby! To come home to a bathed, fed and pyjamed boy quietly reading books was a dream.

“Thank you is all I can say. He loved you, we loved you. Your superb attention and care of Daniel was outstanding”

"An inspirational young woman"

Peter & Cressida Campbell

“We have known Tanya for 18 years. She babysat and nannied our children for nearly 10 years in their early childhood and has stayed in regular touch while they have grown up. Tanya is now a good solid friend to my two boys and a great mentor to my teenaged daughter. She is professional, highly competent, reliable and an inspirational young woman and her input would be a huge asset to any family.

Tanya is sensible beyond her years, loving and kind; she has a really healthy attitude to life and exudes fun and happiness when she is around. We love her and can't recommend her highly enough”

"I would thoroughly recommend her"

Diana Mills

"I have used Tanya’s services for the last year, and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone with small children. She is always on time, always in a great mood and consistently shows genuine affection for my little boy. I have asked her to take care of him for blocks of time during the day, put him to bed at night, and even look after him for weekends while I have been travelling. Tanya is charming, just meet her and you will see why her clients rave about her – babies and toddlers are drawn to her natural, caring energy and I appreciate her effortless competence at every activity you throw at her. Whether it is an afternoon after daycare, dinner and a bath or a full blown mummy week, she always rises to the challenge (even with a sick, grizzly 2-year-old). She also works with whatever schedule you need her to – nothing ever seems like a chore for her which is so reassuring when leaving your precious babies in her hands. But don’t take my word for it – see for yourself… just not too often as I want her talents at my house ;)"

"We trust her completely"

Jo Dibble

“I first met Tanya in 1999 when we were nannies alongside each other in Richmond, London. Ever since then we have been firm friends and now that I am a Mum, my husband and I trust her completely with our own children, now aged 2 & 4. She has been a wonderful presence in their lives from day one and they utterly adore her. Tanya is a natural with all children and children are drawn to her bubbly and caring nature. We have complete trust and faith in Tanya to take great care of our children and she slots into their routine any time of day with ease. By nature she is a highly motivated and energetic woman, very reliable, enthusiastic and resourceful too. Welcoming her into your home will be a decision that you will be happy you made”

"The total professional"

Jake Shand

“Tanya is the person you want looking after your children. Not only is she the total professional, she has all the qualities that you would want in nanny or babysitter. She loves hanging out with children and, in our experience, they love hanging out with her.

When we lived in New Zealand Tanya would look after our 2 children on a regular basis, and they loved having her around so when I needed a chaperone for my 8 year old son on a flight (NZ to London and back!) Tanya was the person that I knew would be able to do it. Not only could I trust her completely with all the grown-up business of travelling, I knew that she would make a great travelling companion for my son. And the both got to their destination in one piece. I would choose Tanya again – no doubt”

"Organized, Reliable & Sensible"

Natasha Backlock

I met Tanya Pease at the begginging of 2010. I had just had my son Rocco and needed some extra help with looking after him.

I was very anxious about leaving my newborn baby with someone that I didnt know very well but Tanya had a huge amount of experience and was super friendly that we decided to set up a few babysitting dates to see how it went.

Tanya was fantastic! She is organized, reliable & sensible. She was also very resourceful and pragmatic at solving any issues.

Her communication was always very good as she would text me to reassure me that everything was going well. She taught me so many things to build my confidence up with my new little baby like ways to burp him and which foods to feed him at what age.

I would definitely recommend Tanya and her services. She was very reliable, caring and always had Rocco's best interest at heart. Her extensive experience made me feel so much more comfortable and confident with leaving my baby with her. My second baby is due next year and it would be my absolute dream to have her services again.

"Tanya is an absolute natural"

Marnie Pitcher

“Tanya has been babysitting our two girls for the past three years from when they were both newborns. She is very reliable and flexible about the needs and wants of both our girls and us as parents. I was breastfeeding both my girls and felt confident that I could leave them in her capable hands (despite my youngest refusing the bottle!) and relax when I left the house.

Tanya is an absolute natural with children of all ages and has a special way of engaging with them. She is fun, kind and caring but not a walk-over. We trust her implicitly with our little girls and know that they will have fun and be cared for as we would for them when we are away. Thank you Auckland Babysitting!”
