Catherine

Are you a new mom or dad looking for a nanny who will love your children and give you peace of mind that everything with them is taken care of when you're not there? I have your nanny! My children (8 and 5) adore our amazing nanny Catherine. Catherine was with our family for nearly six years since my son Tate was 3 months old and transitioned to a regular babysitter since our kids have been in school. My children love her so much. They run to the window every night after she leaves to shout their \\\"I love yous\\\" from the 8th floor down to her on the sidewalk below. I was so heavy-hearted when it was time for her to move on, and now it turns out that her latest family no longer needs her due to job loss during this pandemic, so she is looking for a new lucky family. At first, she can appear a bit shy with adults, but Catherine instantly connects and bonds with children. It was clear from her first interview with us that Catherine was so focused on our son, and her deep love for him was evident very early on. My mother, an early childhood educator, picked up on all of these things that Catherine was doing to engage with Tate that I didn't even notice. She has a gift. Catherine remains focused on our children, never distracted by her phone. She is always singing and reading books to them. She made a point of meeting other nannies in our neighborhood, so our kids had playdates and social outlets with peers during the day. We always would run into kids in the neighborhood who our kids knew well from their park time and playdates with Catherine. She had our kids outside as much as she could, running around the park, in sprinklers, being kids. Which brings me to the next of Catherine's attributes: she is incredibly responsible and always exhibits good judgment. If the kids got wet or dirty playing in the park (which I love!), she would always have them bathed and clean by the end of the day. She left our home more spotless than we left it for her. She was always on time and never took sick days - maybe two total in the six years with our family. Somehow she maintains this perfect balance of love, activity, and order. She makes it look effortless. We would be happy to recommend Catherine and just want her to spend the next 6+ years with a great family who would be happy to appreciate all of her gifts.

Fernandina Naveda
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens

Fernanda is a wonderful nanny who has been a part of our family for 14 years since my younger son was born. She is 100% trustworthy, reliable, caring, loving, and hardworking. I always felt that the care, love, and attention my two sons got from her over the years was every bit as good as what they got from me. They might as well have been her sons. In addition to being excellent at childcare, she is also very willing to help around the house - cleaning, cooking, tidying. Since my sons have grown up, she has stopped working full-time for us and has taken on various other childcare roles, but she comes to visit us regularly and sometimes cleans for us. Having tried out many other nannies before we eventually found Fernanda, I can guarantee that she is a true find - solid gold.

Myrtle
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens

We unexpectedly moved out of Manhattan and would love to find our wonderful nanny, Myrtle, a new family. Myrtle cared for our two children (now 1 and 3) when I went back to work and although she was only with us for a few short months, she immediately made a positive impression on us and we miss her dearly. Myrtle quickly synched up with our complicated schedule (while always keeping our home extremely tidy!) and took the initiative to arrange play dates with friends from our daughter’s school. She was great about getting the kids outside and involved in different activities, while still managing to prepare nutritious meals for them. She was always on time and flexible with us when we unexpectedly needed to work a little later. I could tell that Myrtle truly enjoys being a nanny and caring for children – she immediately bonded with the kids and was so sweet with them; she has a very loving demeanor. Prior to joining our family, Myrtle was with a number of families for over five years each – this speaks to what a great caregiver she is, and her other families will gladly give her similarly glowing references. One of the comments that really stuck out to me about Myrtle from her previous family was that their neighbors would always tell them, unprompted, what a great job she does with the children – we had a similar experience with a number of neighbors commenting to us how wonderful Myrtle is with the kids. While Myrtle would love the opportunity to work with another baby so that she can grow with the family, she is open to all families. She also prefers to work full time, but understanding we are in unusual times, she is open to starting out on a more part time basis with the expectation of moving to full time. Myrtle has the ability to drive. Please reach out with any questions. We will truly miss Myrtle, but we are hoping she finds a wonderful family to work with. Myrtle is truly a gem!

Our wonderful nanny Prelline is now available. Prelline has been delightful to work with, and she truly loves children and caring for children. She brings a positive, upbeat and absolutely loving presence into the life of our son, and we have been very lucky to have her in our lives. She joined us when our son was 5 months old, so I can speak directly to her sensitivity and supportive nature as a first-time mom of an infant. We learned a lot from her too. She helped introduce our little one to solid foods, gave him plenty of attention and activities, and socialized him with other children in play dates. Prelline is kind, loving, thoughtful, and conscientious, and was the only caregiver I met that truly made me feel like I could return to work after my mat leave. She has cared for infants and toddlers as well as older children, and has many years of experience caring for children in the city. We will miss having her calming and stabilizing presence every day.

Exceptional and experienced nanny who approaches her work with an unsurpassed professionalism and great love. Our children were always safe and happy with her. She is kind, loving, gentle, patient, flexible and encouraging. She attends to the whole child, is incredibly dedicated and a true partner in raising children. Everyone admires her work and her personality. Unfortunately, our family is moving out of state, so she is available immediately for a new position 4 or 5 days per week in either Brooklyn or Manhattan. We endorse and recommend her wholeheartedly.

I'm writing this post to recommend our wonderful former nanny Nikita(Niki) to help her find new family. She's been with us for almost 3years since my son was almost 3months & daughter was 3.5years old. She's college graduate, warm, kind, professional, trustworthy, reliable & CPR certified. She was recommended to us by our family friends who were relocating and they recommend her highly as well. Upon meeting her the very first time, it was pretty clear to me about her being the right choice for our family. She devotes her full attention to my kids, keeps them engaged into different activities, also arranges play dates, takes them for walk, prepare healthy meals &snacks for the kids, always prepared & thinking ahead. She also has a great knowledge about age appropriate developmental milestones for kids. Even without asking she always helps to keep our house neat & tidy, help run errands when needed, also helps with light meal prep for us when we're busy with work. She's always punctual, willing to stay late, work on occasional weekends and stayed overnight if me/my husband has to travel for work. Over the years we've received unsolicited feedback from other parents, teachers & friends about her attentiveness, care & love for our kids. She's also extremely careful about COVID safety as well. Niki has really become a part of our family and just like us any family would be very lucky to have her.

Yvonne Simpson
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Bronx/Riverdale, Westchester

Details
Yvonne (or Aunty Yvonne as she’s known at home) started working with our family full time when my son was 4 months old. She’s been with our family over 5 years, and we unfortunately have to say goodbye to her as our son will be starting kindergarten full time this fall. Yvonne has been an incredibly reliable caregiver for our very active, spirited, curious child, and helps keep our household and lives running smoothly as both my husband and I work long hours. Yvonne has worked 12 hour days with us, and is punctual every single day. As a baby, our son was incredibly colicky, and struggled with multiple food intolerances, making him a very difficult baby to soothe as well to as to feed. Yvonne somehow powered through all these issues, and was a cheerful, loving presence for our son, while also keeping detailed logs of his sleep/feeding for me, and following all care instructions perfectly. When we were attempting solids, he was initially very resistant, and would fight my husband and I when we tried to feed him. Somehow Yvonne got him to eat his food quickly with zero fuss. When we eventually sleep trained him, she played an active role in helping sleep train him during the day, and in maintaining a solid bed time routine. As a toddler/pre schooler she effectively runs our son’s life during the weekday, taking him to preschool, classes, therapy classes, doctor’s appointments, playdates, to museums and the park regularly. She does everything from prepping his lunch box, getting him ready for school to giving him his dinner and bathing him. By the time we get home, he’s clean, in his PJs and ready to play with us. We also come home to a spotless apartment every evening (she does light cleaning), something we probably took for granted until COVID struck and we have to clean up after our son every single day ourselves. Even before COVID she was always very focused on handwashing (esp after taking public transport), and would change out of her \"street clothes\" into a different set of clothes whenever she arrived. I can't stress enough how comforting it is to have a caregiver you can trust and rely on during the day, so you aren't at work constantly worrying about your child and home. We hope that we can help find her another family that will appreciate her and benefit from her care as we have.

Urila

We are looking for a new family for our wonderful nanny Urila. Due to our niece's changing circumstance, she is moving in with us and will be our nanny for the school year. Urila was with us for a short time but quickly integrated with the rhythm of the home and bonded with our two boys ages 5 and 3. By just week two they were sad to see her leave for the day. Urila is a professional nanny with years of experience. She did our kids laundry, kept the house tidy, organized their room and clothes, cooked all their meals and did the grocery shopping. Most impressively she has done an incredible job organizing my son's remote learning schedule for kindergarten. As many parents have experienced there are a number of apps, courses and activities that need to be managed which she has done independently. Urila has also taken on the initiative of making sure my boys days is filled with activities, she takes them to the park, the zoo, all covid friendly conscious activities that ensure they are safe and engaged. Urila has experience with children of all ages and prior to working with us she spent years with another family helping to raise their 3 kids. Your family would be lucky to have her, please contact me for more information.

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.

Lily was an excellent addition to our family for 14+ years. We are now looking to help her find a wonderful family, we moved, and the children are old enough. I work at home now. We have had her since our oldest son was an infant. She has helped us ever since, including through the birth of our second son, nursing, teething, potty training, and starting school. As a result, our sons have become well-behaved and well-rounded children. She arranged to have playdates and took them to all their activities. Lily has always been punctual, respectful, and does her job with the best of her abilities; we truly appreciate her for providing excellent care and love to our children over these past years. We consider him a member of our family. Anything more you may need to know to contact me, I will be happy to speak to you. Part-time works for her..looking forward to hearing from you.

After over six years with our family, our wonderful nanny Shantavia Morris is now available to help another family. Shantavia has taken care of my very active and spirited twins since they were infants. We moved from Upper Manhattan to a new home in Brooklyn and she would like to find a job closer to her home. She has been wonderful with the kids at all ages. She handles breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the kids, does laundry for the whole family, and keeps the kids' room clean and organized. Before the pandemic and shutdown, she brought the kids to regular classes around Upper Manhattan for years and took the initiative to organize frequent play dates and museum and zoo visits with other children. Since the pandemic, we have restricted activities and outings and we trust her to be very safe with the kids and on her own time. She is an incredibly calm, kind, patient person and my children truly love her like a member of the family. She is also young and healthy enough to keep up with their constant running, jumping, and climbing. She has been very reliable, conscientious, and punctual throughout her entire time with our family. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Sue is an AMAZING nanny who has worked with us for the last two years and has truly become part of our family. She started working with us when our son was a newborn and has been with us ever since. We are so sad to lose Sue as our nanny, but unfortunately we are relocating and she is unable to follow us. Any parent would be lucky to have her as a nanny. She is a godsend with newborns. My husband and I actually call her the baby whisperer because she was able to put and keep our son asleep for hours on end. While our son napped, she was very proactive in preparing homemade baby food for him, cleaning up any messes he made, and doing his laundry. Honestly, with Sue around, you couldn’t even tell we had a baby in the house! In addition to her duties in the house, Sue made it a priority to help socialize our son and routinely planned play dates, park outings, library story times, etc. It really has made a difference in his demeanor around other kids. Because of her, our son is so friendly and open to playing with new children. She is extremely reliable and punctual, is CPR certified, and is always present with our son (never distracted on her phone). Sue is also very careful when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness, especially during COVID. She is constantly washing her hands and our son’s hands, disinfecting after returning to the house, and always wears a mask when outside. I highly recommend Sue for your nanny needs. You won’t be disappointed!

Veronica has been with us for more than 12 years. She arrived when our son was three months old, has become an important part of our lives, and if we could figure out a way to keep her for another 12 years we would! We knew when we met her she was the perfect choice for our family. She was soft-spoken and calm and had an air of confidence about her that was so reassuring to us as new parents. She has always been organized, thoughtful, patient, very punctual, and has excellent judgment but, most importantly, she is warm and loving and focused on our son. No matter his age she kept him engaged whether that was running around in the park with other children, visiting a museum, or just playing with toys and reading in his room. They have always had fun together and she has made sure that he spent lots time just being a kid. She was much more likely to take him to the park than to ever let him watch TV or play with an iPad. When Veronica first began working for us she had two children and six years ago she had a third (the little sibling my son always wanted) but by that point it was more like her fourth because she treated our son like one of her own. Over time he became more and more a part of her family and there have been times when he has stayed with them for several days when we have gone out of town. Having this “other family” has been a wonderful experience for our only child and has taught him how to navigate the world of siblings and to share in very different ways. One other amazing thing about Veronica is that we asked her to speak and read only Spanish to our son and she has, to this day, done just that. Her hard work and dedication to our request has made our son bi-lingual – something that we could not have accomplished on our own. As our son has grown, Veronica’s responsibilities each year have changed but the transitions to new situations have been completely smooth – all was just taken in stride. We have always tried to keep our relationship with Veronica open and supportive and we have discussed all types of issues “mom to mom” rather than as employer/employee. She has reinforced our wishes with regard to raising our son and we very much value and respect her opinion and experience. Her hard work and dedication to our son has helped to make him a strong, independent, young man and the bond they share is amazing. We will miss her daily presence in our lives but we know that the next family for whom she works will be incredibly happy and lucky. We highly recommend Veronica without hesitation. Please feel free to contact me at (917) 301-9813 or via email at [email protected] should you require any additional information or have any questions.
