Martha
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn
Availability: Friday Nights, Saturday Days, Saturday Nights, Sunday Days, Sunday Nights
Details
Martha is a fantastic nanny who has been with our family since my daughter was 2 weeks old. The ONLY reason we are letting her find another family is because my children are now 10 and 13 and as much I like the full time help, I do not need it. She is somewhat of a baby whisperer. She is so kind and gentle and organized. She always arrives well before time and will stay late, as needed. She is endlessly patient, extremely responsible and very helpful around the house. She had my kids on schedules and showed them so much love. In fact, the entire family was in tears the day we talked about letting her go. Consider yourself lucky, if you have the opportunity to make her part of your family! Martha is also VERY safe when it comes to COVID. She is conscious of our safety concerns and can be trusted to follow protocol. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Yvonne was our nanny from the time our daughter was a few months old until she was 11 and she is an absolutely wonderful nanny. She is a very responsible, caring, gentle and encouraging person. I particularly appreciated how engaged she was with our daughter when at home or on regular trips to the parks, museums and around the neighborhood. She was a dream come true for our family. I frequently received compliments from other parents about how great Yvonne was with our daughter and I always felt completely secure with leaving our daughter in Yvonne’s care. We had such a great experience with her! Yvonne also has experience with newborns, including working as a baby nurse. Happy to do reference calls.

My family has been fortunate to have an excellent nanny for the past five years. We are parting ways due to changes in my work schedule and Roxanne is now looking to work with another family, preferably 4-5 days a week. Roxy joined our family when our oldest was 7 months old and was with us when we welcomed our youngest a year and a half later. She is dependable, calm, soothing and supportive. She is even-tempered, teaches good manners and gentle discipline. She was a rock of support for our family through illnesses, tantrums and busy work days. When our children were tiny, Roxy spent a lot of time reading with them, studying words, sounds, shapes and colors. Roxy was a huge help with milestones like changing nap schedules and potty training. She makes great friendships and is responsible for matching me and my oldest with some of our earliest neighborhood family friends. Pre-covid, Roxy planned playdates and kiddie dinner parties and when our children were babies she delighted in taking them to classes. Roxy has experience with newborns on up and families up to four kids. She is a certified baby nurse. Your family will be fortunate to have her in your lives.

Judy worked with us for 10 years while she cared for a newborn and a 3 year old. She is a wonderful, loving, caring caregiver who is pleasant, honest, always smiling and a just lovely person. She loves the children she works with, deeply and takes great pride in their achievements. Judy gets along with everyone, and proactively organizes play dates. When she worked for us, she would have play dates with other nannies but also with parents. I constantly received rave reviews about her from other parents from the school, as well as our doormen. She is absolutely fabulous.

Paula Justin
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn
Availability: Friday Nights, Saturday Days, Saturday Nights

Paula is the most incredible person I know. She helped raise our kids which while i know everyone likely says - is profoundly the case for us. I have a very demanding full time job and traveled quite a bit. And my husband and I have 3 kids very close in age. Paula joined our family when my oldest was 2 months old and stayed with us through the birth of two additional children and our move from Manhattan to Westchester. Covid forcing me to work from home and my kids now at 16, 15 and 12 created a situation that no longer made sense for Paula to stay with us. We have not been the same and miss her every day. Paula has taught my children so much and our love for her is lifelong. She is loving, smart, kind and has endless patience and absolutely loves children and never gets flustered. She is a calm voice of reason that my kids respected and will continue to live up to her values every day. We are the luckiest family in the world to have her in our life and I can't recommend her enough. She is the right person for a kind, loving generous family that will treat her as well as she will treat your children.

Euthelie Marcelle
Neighborhoods: Westchester, New Jersey, Connecticut
Availability: Friday Nights, Saturday Nights, Sunday Days, Sunday Nights
Details
Euthelie Marcelle was our caregiver over the years helping with our 3 children in Rye, NY with before and after school activities. She has years of experience working with families in the Westchester area. She was the caregiver to my grandmother for 11 years living full time with her as her primary care taker in Bronxville for the past 5 years. During that time she also babysat and did housekeeping for my family. She does it all well; light housekeeping, shopping, driving, grocery shopping. She is a trustworthy, dependable, patient, timely, flexible, respectful and overall caring and loving person with a great sense of humor and understanding. The kids love her as she loves them too. Euthelie is considered a part of our large family as she’s been working with our Westchester relatives for the past 22 years. Because of the passing of my Grandma and my kids being older now, we are highly recommending Euthelie for a placement in a family who is in need of a loving caregiver. Feel free to contact Euthelie directly at (718) 414-5138 or at [email protected] . I am also available for a phone reference and can be reached at 914-260-4419.

Adi
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx/Riverdale, Westchester, Connecticut

This is a referral for our wonderful nanny Adi. Adi has been with us for over 5 years, since the birth of our first child, and we love her like a family member. Adi is Italian, which is what we first loved about her, and has all of the attributes of an Italian nanny. She painstakingly made our children’s first foods entirely from scratch and to this day cooks all their meals - from pasta to lamb, a variety of veggies and risottos, and everything in between. She speaks to our children in Italian and teaches them the language by reading Italian stories and books. Fun, spirited, creative, resourceful — Adi draws and plays with them each day, organizes play-dates, and gets them wherever they need to go. The most noteworthy and truly amazing thing about Adi is how she interacts and plays with our children and by extension their friends. On the flip side, she teaches them values, kindness, proper manners, and boundaries; patiently dealing with tantrums while always remaining in charge. It’s a delight to come home and hear them laughing and joking together or singing and dancing downstairs and so heartwarming to know that she loves our two boys as if they were her own. We are so sad to part with Adi, but due to recent events and uncertainty, we are moving up to Connecticut for next year and maybe longer. She will be greatly missed and I want to find her a wonderful home. To whomever it may concern, please don’t hesitate to call if you have questions.

I am writing on behalf of Ushanta Ramcharan who worked as our nanny from August 2020 to January 2021. In this job she took care of our twin girls from the ages of 3 to 8 months. Shanta had a wonderful manner with the babies. She was caring, attentive, and sweet with them. As they got older she engaged them with new activities and took care to help them reach their milestones. I always felt she was focused while on the job and they were being well taken care of. In addition to managing all of her childcare tasks, Shanta was also incredibly helpful around the house which was not expected. She kept our house tidy and clean, helped with our laundry, and even cooked delicious dinners for us a few times a week. I also witnessed Shanta interact with my 2 year old niece on several occasions and could see that she would be a wonderful caregiver for toddlers. As a person, Shanta is easy-going, generous, and pleasant to work with. She always came to work early and was very flexible with hours and traveling. For all these reasons I can confidently recommend Shanta as a nanny.

Fanta
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Bronx/Riverdale, Westchester

Details
Our family moved away from the NYC area in the spring of 2020 and we were incredibly sad to lose our beloved nanny, Fanta. Fanta was absolutely wonderful with both our toddler and newborn. She started with us when my daughter was 7 months and they were very close. When my son was born, Fanta really stepped up to help our whole family through a difficult delivery and recovery. She is a pleasure to have around, very respectful and cares so much for the kids. She is honest, hard-working, and reliable. She is fluent in French. We asked that she speak only French with our children, which she did, and her English with us was great. In addition, Fanta is able to strike a difficult and delicate balance between discipline and being loving and fun. Sick days are extremely rare for her -- only two in two years. Fanta lives in the Bronx and was working for us on the Upper West Side. She has been extremely careful during COVID. Fanta completed infant/child CPR and first aid training during summer 2018, and updated her infant/child CPR training in September 2019. Fanta is looking for full-time work, ideally with a baby and/or toddler. She is available to start right away. Please reach out if you would like to speak with Fanta or have any questions. I cannot say enough about Fanta and hope she can find a caring family who loves her as much as we do. We miss her dearly!!

Real-Life Supernanny available!!! We are looking for a new family for Jasmine, our beloved former babysitter. Jasmine has worked for us for almost 7 years (and for 13 years for another family before us) and helped us raise our two kids (8 years and 6 years) in New York. After her employment with us ended last year, we matched her with another family who ended up moving out of NY due to Covid-19. My husband and I being full-time professionals, if it weren’t for Jasmine, we wouldn’t have been able to maintain a good balance between our family life and our professional life, and most importantly, we wouldn’t have had such a fulfilling and enjoyable journey through the first years of parenthood. Jasmine is warm, loving, caring, honest, punctual, responsible, and very dependable. She is never late, braving the worst NY storms and always reporting to work on time. In the course of seven years, she took only ONE sick day! She is very flexible, gracefully accommodating us if we needed her to stay late or occasionally work on weekends. Jasmine displays a character of integrity and honesty; if a kid has a little fall in the playground, she doesn’t wait for us to come home and find out, she calls and tells us what happened in detail. She is very sociable, having this natural ability to connect with people and make friends with other babysitters in the playground. Thus, she has created a vibrant and diverse social circle for our kids, making sure they have playdates whenever they needed to. Being a good judge of character, she becomes friends only with like-minded nannies with integrity, so we never had to worry about who our kids are hanging out with. Jasmine is very professional and can efficiently fulfill children’s needs at different ages. From feeding and potty-training in toddler years, to helping with homework and creating arts and crafts projects in older years, she is always a pro. Whenever needed, she prepares kids meals, does their laundry, and helps with light upkeep work (tidying up kids’ mess). She’s also good at getting kids to do their share in cleaning up. She started reading to our kids when they were babies (thereby instilling in them a love of reading), taught them their alphabet using foam letters while playing in the tub when they were 2 years old, and eventually helped them qualify for the Gifted and Talented school program, scoring in the high nineties. She helps with homework while making sure to nurture autonomy and independence in the kids. She is very involved in all aspects of our kids’ life, always calls on weekends to remind us to sign a field trip paper, or make sure that our daughter practiced properly for her spelling test or finished her writing assignment. For further information, you can contact me (Zeina, former employer, cell: 917-294-6106) or contact Jasmine (cell: 917-861-3929).
