Meet Tamara

Hey! I’m Tamara. I’m the founder of Precious Poppets.

I’m also a mum of three beautiful children—Theo, 4, Sia, 3 and baby Penn.


You know when your kids want your attention, but you need to reply to emails? Or when you’re trying to do life admin and be a good parent too? You want to connect with your children, but you also want a life of your own. 


So how do you keep everyone happy, including yourself?


I learned pretty quickly that there was no such thing as balance without asking for help. To be a good mum and a productive business owner, I had to separate the two. So I decided to hire a nanny.


Asking for help allowed me to make clear boundaries. When I’m with my kids, I’m 100% present. When I’m at work, I get more done. I can choose to go to pilates or go food shopping in peace.


This way, I know I’m putting in quality time in both areas of my life. I connect with my family, do what I need to do, and can let go of the guilt—finally! You may be worried about handing your kids over to a stranger. I get it. Finding an experienced caregiver with the right credentials takes time. That’s why I started Precious Poppets to make it easier for parents to find highly-skilled nannies.


Having worked as a nanny throughout Australia and Europe for over ten years, I know how to source nannies and babysitters who take their role seriously.


I personally interview, check references and accreditations. I make sure they’re up for the very important role of looking after your child. 


You can rest assured your little one is in good hands.
