Vicky Montalvo

Details
Vicky is a whole family caregiver and has many years of experience with children and families. We had the pleasure of working with her at a critical time, when I started a new job and at a time when my son needed her most, post-pandemic. After months of isolation, my son was withdrawn, anxious and delayed in areas like speech and motor skills. Vicky’s calm, patient, reliable, loving and attentive presence transformed his reality and our home. She implemented a steady routine, built his trust, attentively played with him, explored art, song and dance, cooked for him, lovingly communicated with him, traveled to kid-friendly parks, and set up playdates. Socially and emotionally, my son is a different person. He asks for Vicky daily and we both consider her family. As a first- time single mom, Vicky has also been a beacon of light to me. While I worked from home, with a new and demanding job, Vicky cooked for me in addition to my son and offered advice to ensure I also felt supported throughout the transition. Vicky is always on time, pleasant and positive when she arrives, and she immediately takes over. She is always very organized, prepares healthy food, organizes play dates and gathers my son’s clothes, snacks and toys to keep him entertained, cared for and stimulated during the day (screen-free). Vicky has helped us with laundry, organizing toys, light cleaning and cooking. I love to overhear her chatting and playing with my son. Her kind and fun demeanor results in laughter and thoughtful conversations. She also made my son’s birthday extra special this year. She helped to create one of the most memorable experiences of his 3 years of life! Spanish Is Vicky’s first language and she's open to working with a family where one or both parents speak Spanish as well as parents who speak English-only. Her English is fine for work. If needed, her daughter, who is also an outstanding person, can help with more complicated discussions. Vicky is also vaccinated and open to boosters. When I had to work late (sometimes last minute), Vicky was always flexible with timing. She was my saving grace in potty-training and she is currently playing a crucial role in my son’s transition into preschool. If my son was not in school full-time, we would work with Vicky forever. She works with us part-time now, but I’d like to help her find full-time work with a great family. She has been indispensable to us, and will be to future families. I’m happy to recommend Vicky and answer any questions.

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 more active work, 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 fully vaccinated, and is extremely safe and conscientious about COVID in general - 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.

My Amazing Nanny and i have been a perfect fit from the first hello!! I am currently a SAHM of a 2 and a half yr old and for the moment only need help in the afternoons and occasional late night. Alli would love to be a part of another loving family who need morning help and/or weekends. She is our superhero and we do not want to lose her but unfortunately our toddler has started a preschool program until 3pm, so Alli is available most mornings and weekends at the moment. She provides an abundance of love and genuine concern for our entire family and has become someone who we trust with our daughter’s care and development. She has experience with all ages from newborn to teenagers and can run an entire household with great expertise. Please feel free to reach out with any further questions and concerns.

Juliana Isidore

Juliana is a wonderful nanny who started when our older daughter was only six weeks old. She was with us for over ten years. She is a special person who genuinely cares for the children she cares for. We eventually had to move on as our two daughters aged out of needing babysitters. However, we still see her regularly as she is like a member of the family. She is a great baby sitter. Nurturing. Punctual. Responsible. She is a quality decision maker who always puts the child’s interest first. She is also very conscious of following your instructions regarding your children but will always give advice when asked. She also makes sure to help in finding activities to keep the children occupied including setting up playdates and taking them on field trips. We very much want to help find her a new place. We know her new family will be happy to have her.

We could not offer more praise of our longtime nanny, Natasha, who is looking for work on the UWS. Natasha is a very skilled professional nanny who is available mornings, as well as Mondays and Fridays full day. Tasha started worked with us when our daughter was 4 months old and I went back to work. Our kid is now 12, and Tasha is still part of our lives. Tasha is respectful of parent choices, a mother's helper who is a real team player in raising a child and also a huge help with everything from sleep training to toilet training, playing, social calendaring, artmaking, tidying and cooking -- she helped us make all the babyfood by hand. Natasha has experience with multiples, and is a super organized person. Never late, always communicates, and for years she ran all our daughters birthday parties to the great delight of all involved. Tasha is fully vaxxed & very COVID-aware, as is our family. Natasha looks after our daughter 3 afternoons a week- that is the only other gig she has. No kids of her own, and husband lives in Caribbean. She is also delightful as a human being-- warm, friendly and a happy member of the larger community. She is Brooklyn born and raised, very comfortable in NYC. Will work on the books. She is loyal, enthusiastic, and scrupulously honest-- I trust her with my kid, my apartment, my credit card. She has fantastic references from professional NYC families. Natasha loves her job and is a terrific nanny in all respects. i am happy to share more.

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.

Fernanda was our nanny for thirteen years, since my youngest son was born. She has been an absolutely terrific nanny and all-round help during those years, and she has become effectively a family member. She loved our kids as much as we did, and looked after them as if they were her own. She is responsible, resourceful, helpful and loving, and extremely trustworthy. Both of my kids are now in high school and she is looking for a full-time job. She works very hard, and is willing to do what she is asked - she always did house cleaning and cooking for the kids for us, as well as taking them wherever they needed to go. She is excellent with newborns as well as toddlers and young kids, and she was wonderful with our children as they grew up too. I highly recommend her.

Claudia has been like a family member for the past 12 years. She started working with our family when our oldest was 3 months old (now 12 years old) and stayed with us through the birth of our second child until we moved from New York City. She still nannies for us in Florida a few times a year which is wonderful as we get to see her and she can spend time with the girls. She was wonderful with our girls when they were babies, always helping to take care of everything they needed (laundry, food, trips to the park, classes, cleaning, etc.) and transitioned easily to when they were older (playdates, pick up from school, academic help, etc.) She is always entirely engaged when she is with them, always doing fun activities and keeping them busy (reading books, crafts, long trips to the park, etc... they would always arrive home exhausted!) She loves the girls like they are her family and we have always trusted her completely with them! She has traveled with us many times and we have also left the girls with her for weekends away (again, always knowing she is taking wonderful care of them). Her top traits would be her careful nature (hand washing, sanitizing, always cautious, etc.), punctuality, reliability (literally never called out that I can remember) and overall loving, kind nature. We really can't recommend her enough!

Ann is currently caregiver to our two kids aged 6 and 5. She is incredibly kind and nurturing; our kids have grown to love her like they do their grandparents. She is highly experienced, having worked in the industry for years and raised her own children who are now almost all adults. She exercises strong judgement to follow instructions but also use her instincts where needed. I grew to rely on her for advice when it comes to the care of the kids especially when they fell ill; she always has great advice on home remedies born from experience. She is so thoughtful and often surprises our kids with kind gestures. Once she baked a cake for one of my kids for his birthday without me asking. She is a superb cook. Her remit included cooking for the kids from time to time and for breakfast, our kids would be sad on her days off because they couldn’t have Ann’s oatmeal or pancake and didn’t like how I make them. She has many wonderful Caribbean recipes and my husband and I are addicted to her fried chicken! Ann would be a wonderful asset to any loving family.
