"Dear Thaty, As soon as we met you, we knew you were the perfect person to care for Kavi. We are in awe of your knowledge, your wisdom, you playfulness, your patience, your warmth,and your wit, not to mention your commitment to supporting other nannies, fighting for domestic workers’ rights, and working for justice in so many ways. We don’t know how you do it! You have made us better parents and been such an important figure in Kavi’s life. We can’t believe it’s already been nine months! Thank you for everything, and make sure to always keep in touch! Love, Gowri, Josh and Kavi"

"I wanted to thank you for recommending Thaty as a babysitter during our vacation in Boston. We stayed at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and had Nanny Thaty come on June 27th and 28th to our hotel. This was our first experience using a babysitter that my son didn't know so naturally I was a little nervous. She was punctual and brought a bag of goodies to entertain our little boy who is only 5 months old. She was calm, kind and very polite. She had a great way with him. He took to her right away and I felt very comfortable leaving him with someone new. She sent me photos of him and let me know that everything was going well. He loves to dance and sing and had a great time with her. We wished we could have taken her back to Vancouver, BC with us! We will definitely look her up again when we come to Boston next year."

"We came from Switzerland with our 8 month baby for a couple of days to Boston. We had a bit of apprehension on how our son would react to a foreign person in a foreign country and in a foreign hotel environment. Thaty did a great job from the beginning. Our son did accept her upfront and we could leave the room in confidence. When we came back, our son was very enthusiastic and laughing with Thaty, as they would know each other since a long time. Thaty is very friendly, and one can feel that she really loves babys and knows how to handle them. She is also very professional, and had a lot of very good questions on what to do to best help our son on topics like food, sleep and play. We highly recommend Thaty and would take her any time back, should we be in Boston again."

"I cannot speak highly enough about Thaty. She was an asset to our growing family in a time of great change in our house and continues to be a valued part of our life as a babysitter and friend. Thaty has a true gift in her ability to teach and care for children and both of our children thrive under Thaty's care. Any family would be lucky to have Thaty as a caregiver and I will be pleased to serve as a further reference to sing Thaty's praises if necessary or desired."

"Wonderful experience! Tati was responsive to a week’s notice, a great communicator, and jumped right in to wrangle two toddlers into bedtime. She came prepared with a kit including toys and a notebook to write down routines/habits. The boys instantly took to her warm personality and that was very comforting. Thank you for all!!"

"Thaty was wonderful, we are so glad that we picked her to take care of our little one. She knows what she is doing; she is very attentive and focused on the baby and on the baby only. She left us notes of the feeding, how he acted, how he slept and so forth. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Thank you all."

"This was our first time leaving our 6 month old with a babysitter, and he was a little fussy as he was teething. So we were a little nervous about how it would go. Thaty did a great job caring for him, and reassuring us, and he was fast asleep by the time we got back! "

“We *so* enjoyed spending time with you last week. We really hope you will consider staying in touch, since all of our needs (ours and yours!) may evolve over time, and we’d love to consider working together again in the future (even just for babysitting, weekend help. etc). At the very least, please feel free to use as as a very strong reference! Thank you again for all your help last week - you really saved us.”

"Just a few lines to let you know it was great having Tatiane taking care of the kids the other Thursday night. It was the first time I left my children with a nanny but I went confident and had fun because Tatiana showed professionalism and reliability to look after both the baby and the princess. Thanks Tatiane!!"

"I have been meaning to write for a few weeks now. I was very impressed with my experiences with Thaty, when she took care of my two young children the week after Christmas. The moment I met her, I could tell she has a real love for children, and has found her vocation as a caregiver. She came to our home for three days, and immediately stepped into the family. The kids, 13 months and 3 1/2, warmed to her immediately, and on the second evening, my daughter started crying when Thaty had to leave. She asked great questions, brought along activities for the children, and left clear notes for me so that I knew everything they had done during the day. She handled everything very responsibly, but reached out as needed for questions about food and naps. She is very smart, kind, personable. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is interested in having her care for their children, especially in a long term position. A few additional notes - on the third evening, I came home to a dance party, with a CD that Thaty had made just for my children. Incredibly thoughtful. The next day, as I was getting my son dressed, I saw that she had sorted and folded his clothes drawers. Incredibly unexpected and thoughtful. Thank you, and I will be sure to reach out to you the next time I need help, when traveling for work or when my daycare is closed."

"I just wanted to tell you in writing how much you helped me. You were an incredibly calm and welcome constant in my life when things were going off the tracks. The comfort you provided to me and my children was unparalleled...and having a full night of sleep with a newborn and toddler was a game changer. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You are an amazing soul."

"Thaty cared for our 9.5 month old son expertly. She came prepared with appropriate toys and books. Thaty eased into getting acquainted with Miles slowly, and he appreciated the extra time to get to know her. When things were tough (Miles was hungry and crying) Thaty knew to let me know to come upstairs to breastfeed him. She put him to sleep soundly. She patiently sat in the dark room while he snored away. Our child woke up in a great mood the next morning thanks to the wonderful care he received the night before."

"I have a 6-month-old baby and have been a stay-at-home Mom in that time. Due to injury, we hired Thaty, and she was the first non-family/friend babysitter that we have had. Well, I couldn't have asked for a better first babysitter! She dove right in and learned how to feed my cleft palate baby. I loved watching them interact, play, and hearing my daughter's giggles! My daughter has advanced motor skills, and Thaty happily let her walk all over the house, teaching her to turn corners, and showing her how to support herself in a variety of new positions. Thaty also happily took my daughter to her music class, and they had a great time. I am sorry to let her go back to her regular Nanny clients. Thank you for sending me such a great person, especially as my very first babysitter."
