Nichole
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn
Availability: Friday Nights, Saturday Days, Saturday Nights, Sunday Days, Sunday Nights
Details
After 10 years, we have made the difficult decision to move on from our incredible nanny, Nichole. Nichole came to us when our daughter was an infant and she quickly showed what a valuable part of our family that she would become. Trustworthy, reliable, intelligent, proactive, flexible, on time, and great communicator are some things that come to mind when thinking about Nichole’s work over the past 10 years. A former art teacher, Nichole was pivotal in encouraging the kids creativity through various outlets. As the kids got older, Nichole was an asset when it came to overseeing homework and keeping the kids on a daily routine. In addition to watching the children, Nichole also did some light housework. We always returned home each evening to a clean home and happy children. Please contact me if you (or anyone you know) is looking for a nanny. Thanks so much. Best, David Golden (917) 715-7998 [email protected]

Keita is the nanny you want to snatch up! It was serendipitous the day we found our nanny. Our doorman told me, "you have to grab Keita. She is the best and her family is moving to Philly. She will be needing a new job soon". It was so easy and I never looked back. Keita was with us for about 6 years, starting 3 months after my older son was born. As new parents, she was perfect for us. Her confidence and delicacy with which she took care of our newborn was reassuring and mind-blowing to us. She really showed us the way. She home made all his first foods - all the purées. She is a great cook! Like any parent, I hated going back to work and leaving my child at that age. She sent me pictures every day of my smiling, happy boy. The bonus with Keita - she speaks French. We asked her to only speak to our kids in French so they would get that added benefit. She loves the idea that she can help teach a native English speaking child French. I went out and got French books and it was great having that added influence. I loved to hear my little one say "sil vous plait"! On this note, I suggest if you are interested in speaking with Keita and doing an informal screening interview over the phone first you will miss out on getting to know Keita. Her strong suit is her personality which, with the language barrier of her accent and that she’s not a native English speaker, things definitely get lost in translation over the phone. You must meet her to know how wonderful she is. Please interview in person  One of my biggest nanny pet peeves- I HATE when I see nannies walking their child with headphones on- or gabbing on the phone. You would never see Keita doing this. She doesn't watch tv - and so the tv was never on in our home while she was taking care of our 2 kids. She engaged all the time and her #1 priority is focusing on our kids and making sure they are happy. She has so much love and care in her heart; you can rest assured your children will be loved and cared for as close to a parent's love as possible. When the kids were playing off by themselves or napping she looked for ways to be helpful to the family. She really went above and beyond. She has an incredible work ethic. My kids took karate classes and I received the most amazing email from the receptionist there- out of no where - at the time. I have to share an excerpt from it it to exemplify what is so special about her: "I am taking a chance to offer some unsolicited opinion. I do not do this often. In fact, this is the second time. So here goes...I have had a few occasions to observe [S] and [J's] child care provider (babysitter) thus far. I don't recall her name. I have to say she is so good with your children. Her smile of pride and approval for their accomplishments here is beautiful...Trust me, I see nannies that are not attentive to their children. Good choice in hiring her". This was not the first time I had been told how wonderful Keita was by random people over the years. She is extremely trustworthy. I can say without a doubt she would never lie- never do anything that wasn't honest. She has very high moral standards. When we hired her to work with us on the Upper West Side we told her we were planning a move to Brooklyn within the year. She told us "as hard as it is to find a good nanny, it's hard to find a good family. I will go with you. She traveled from the Bronx to Brooklyn, getting to us by 8am, every week for over 4 years. Keita had had 2 prior nanny experiences and those references were also excellent. She's been doing this job now for nearly 26 years. We continue to use Keita as our babysitter when we need. Win-win. Our kids are SO excited to be with her. She is like a second mom to them. And she continues to be as awesome as she was when she worked for us full-time. This is VERY Keita: She babysat, we came home and my husband and my bed was beautifully made (not the shoddy job I do!). We had dumped our clean laundry on our bed and while we were out she made our bed! She is incredible.

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.

Our incredible nanny Keita will be available towards the end of August/beginning of September, her start date is flexible. Additionally, she is available for temporary full-time or part-time work in July as we will be out of the country. Keita is simply the best and has over 15 years of experience in childcare in Manhattan and Brooklyn. She started with us when our son was 3 months old and unfortunately we can no longer keep her on full-time as our son starts pre-school in the fall, and we desperately want to help her find a family who will be a great fit. She was a godsend for my husband and I who, as new and exhausted parents, had no idea what we were doing. She came in and helped us learn how to parent our son without ever overstepping. She was an incredible support to me as I transitioned back to full time work. She made the transition so easy as I knew he was being loved and cared for well at home. Now that my son is a VERY active toddler, they have such a sweet bond. She is always coming up with new games to play and taking him on adventures. She lets him explore and learn in his own way while making sure he's supported, safe and happy. She's helped him make many friends in the neighborhood park, at music classes, and within our building. She is a native French speaker, but also speaks English well. She speaks French exclusively to our son which has been ideal for my husband and I. It's been incredible watching his language develop in both languages simultaneously. She came to us highly recommended by 3 families who she was with for many years each. Keita is incredibly responsible, trustworthy, and considerate. Simply put, she is a lovely person who loves children. I can't say enough wonderful things about her! Feel free to call/text/email with any questions or to speak in greater detail.

Irene
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn
Availability: Friday Nights, Saturday Days, Saturday Nights, Sunday Days, Sunday Nights
Details
I'm posting on behalf of our former nanny, Irene. She's a much loved member of the family. Irene's experience is vast, having worked with kids of all ages as a career nanny. She's supportive of breastfeeding, bottle feeding, formula, a pro at potty-training, and the only adult who could get our toddler to branch out beyond favored fruits to fish, veggies, and sometimes even spicier flavors. There's no one more punctual, making a high stress morning routine run smoothly for all. Most important, she loved our kids like her own, and her impeccable references suggest other families she's worked with feel the same. She is dialed in to developmental milestones, and with our support sought out neighborhood playgroups, as well, going out of her way to engage and play at every chance. Neighbors often sang her praises unprompted, and our little one's smile whenever her name is mentioned (even now following separation due to Covid) says it all. Irene has been very cautious throughout the last year, and will follow any Covid precautions your family is taking. She is available immediately.

Sharmilla is simply wonderful. She was a great friend and nanny for our son, and they formed a bond that was great to witness. Our son was excited when she would come over, and she would spend time with him (unlike some who phone it in) and it was great. If we didn't move to NJ, we'd still be hiring her, she's awesome! She would even do the dishes if there were any in the sink, and do some light cleaning, even without being asked!

Stephanie Deleo
Neighborhoods: Bronx/Riverdale, Westchester
Availability: Saturday Days, Sunday Days
Details
We have been incredibly lucky to have Stephanie as the sole caregiver to our newborn daughter since she was 5 months old. Stephanie is caring and just loves taking care of babies. She is attentive and takes her responsibilities as a nanny very seriously. She is open to our feedback and willing to try different approaches and always make sure the well-being of our daughter is the top and utmost priority. Our daughter was extremely difficult to feed during teething time, and at one point her weight percentage dropped to 2%. Stephanie painstakingly and patiently cultivated a positive eating experience for her. As a working mom without any family members living nearby, Stephanie is really the godsend help we needed. Our daughter has grown to "graduate" from full time nanny care, hence we are trying to find a loving family for Stephanie to be a part of. Stephanie drives and she is fully COVID vaccinated. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Fernandina Naveda
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn

Fernanda was our nanny for over a decade and became a beloved family member during that time. She remains a good family friend and comes to visit the kids (who are now high schoolers) whenever she can. She is the most responsible, hardworking, loyal and decent person imaginable, and she loves children. Having been through several other nannies & babysitters before finding her, I know the immense difference it makes when you find someone you can truly trust with your children; someone who will treat and care for them in the way you would yourself care for them. Fernanda is highly experienced and very practical in every way too. She was immensely helpful with housework and other chores, and is a flexible and dependable employee.

Yvette
Neighborhood: Brooklyn

Our loving, responsible babysitter Yvette seeks a new family. Yvette worked with our family for 12 years, since my son was born. Yvette is part of our family now – she takes her work seriously, and her priority is ensuring the wellbeing of our children. In addition to our son, she cared for our daughter. It was a hard decision, but our kids aged out of needing care. She is extremely reliable (always on time, never sick) and is professional (not a big phone talker at all). Yvette also takes initiative to organize playdates to ensure our kids are involved in the neighborhood and have appropriate developmental experiences. From day one, I felt extremely comfortable leaving my children with Yvette. I remember when we first interviewed babysitters way back when, she was the only that asked to hold my son. She truly loves kids. She is energetic, and always ensure that our kids have a good balance of park/outdoor time and school work time. Yvette would be really well suited for a family with a newborn as she used to be a baby nurse. I found her experience and sage advice very useful in the hectic, early days of motherhood. She is looking for a family who would need a sitter for the longer term and is interested in opportunities that are for a year or more. In addition to caring for our children, she does their laundry. I am happy to talk to anyone about Yvette!

Mikel, or Shemar as he likes to be called, is a hard-working young adult male, who attends college. He has worked with groups of kids at a summer day camp and has worked part-time in the evenings taking care of my nine-year-old son for 2 years. 0ne thing I loved about Shemar is that he treated my son as a younger brother. He assisted him with homework, took him to the park, played sports with him. He is a good listener, extremely flexible, and always on time. While he worked with us he felt a part of the family and had a great impact on my son. Unfortunately, we can no longer employ him as our family is relocating to a different state, but If you're looking for an older influence for your son, Shemar would be a perfect hire.

I am writing on behalf of Deborah (Debbie) Francis. She began working for us when my eldest son, Max, was 3-months old. As our family grew, with Beau 2 years later and then Beckett 2 years after that, Debbie became an invaluable member of our family. She is reliable, hardworking, and loving. Debbie worked for us for 14 years and to this day our boys still love her so much! Debbie would like to find a new position with a family who has a newborn. I remember being a new mom and being worried about finding someone reliable to look after Max. From the beginning, Debbie showed her skill and expertise in caring for a baby and subsequently for my other sons when they were newborns. She takes her position very seriously and I always appreciated how she kept the boys on the schedule I had outlined for her in terms of feeding time and nap times. In all the years Debbie worked for us she never once didn't show up and never called out sick. Debbie is 100% trustworthy and uses excellent judgement. She taught our boys to be polite, have good manners, and ....... to eat all their vegetables! Debbie asked me to let a potential family know that she is very afraid of animals and therefore would like to work for a family wihtout pets. You can call Debbie directly at (718) 926-9326 and you can call me for a reference at (917) 502-0636 and I can give you more details. Thanks so much, Claire

Wilma was with our family for almost 14 years, since our daughter (J.) was 4 months old, at which point I returned back to work post maternity leave. She is very responsible, always on time, thoughtful, and diligent. Most importantly, she is a very safe, loving, gentle, supportive, and caring person. This was a crucial quality to me, as I felt her calm, patient demeanor would be beneficial to our daughter, which was true. For me the most important thing as a new mother was that J. was safe and loved, particularly as I was away at work - which is exactly what we got with Wilma. She was with J. through every stage: infant, toddlerhood, preschool, childhood and pre-teen years - and J. loves her very much. She is lightly supporting us now, but understandably wants to have a deeper level of engagement, so I want to help Wilma find another nice, loving family. She is happy to start caring for an infant again, or she is also happy to care for children in older stage ages - she is very flexible . We live on the UWS, but she is totally fine with other places in Manhattan and Brooklyn. She is extremely safe and conscientious about COVID, masking, hand sanitizing/wash etc. She is a kind soul, and she is a very important person to us, so I am taking an active role in helping her find a family. If any of you are in need of a nanny, or know someone who might be, please feel free to contact me at the 646# or you may contact her directly at the 917#. Thank you so much.
