Ushanta
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens

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.

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).

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.

We are looking to find a new warm family for our caregiver of 9 years, Rennetta. Rennetta has worked for 20+ years as a caregiver for infants, toddlers and elementary aged children.

Wilma Neptune
Neighborhoods: Manhattan, Brooklyn

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 now young teen years - and J. loves her very much. Now it is time to transition, and I want to help Wilma find another nice, loving family. She is ready to start with an infant again, or can also come in at later stage ages, she is very flexible on that. We live on the UWS, but she is also very open to other places in Manhattan. She is definitely open to Brooklyn as well, as she and her family live there. 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.

Mena
Neighborhood: Queens

Details
Our nanny Mena has been an incredible caretaker to our daughter Sasha since her infancy. Mena has over 20 years of experience in caring for young children, and we’ve been blessed to have her in our home for the last 1 1/2 years, where we consider her another member of our family. In fact our daughter has come to love Mena so much she would run to the door when she heard Mena's keys jiggling and instantly start smiling. Our daughter had never accepted a bottle or a pacifier from any of us until the day she met Mena -who was able to coax her to finally start drinking for the first time and eventually take a pacifier. Mena gives structure to our daughter’s days, giving her all her meals, snacks, naps and taking her outside to the park or just for walks outside - always sending us photos and updates throughout the day. Mena exhibits amazing patience in everything she does from feeding our daughter to putting her down for naps - both of which our daughter usually puts up a fight. While our daughter sleeps, Mena helps with general cleaning in the kitchen and does our daughter’s laundry. During the pandemic, Mena has been the model citizen, always socially distancing and wearing her face mask in public (including when she takes our daughter to the park). She is extremely careful to always ensure our daughter’s safety, so we always feel at ease and have peace of mind when our child’s care is in her hands. Any family would be lucky to have Mena as part of theirs, and we can't recommend her enough (feel free to email us at [email protected] for a reference).

Mary is wonderful. She has been a part of our family for 7 years, taking care of our son Anders. She is extremely loving and responsible. In seven years, she has not missed a day of work or even been late. She is hard worker but most importantly loves and has taken wonderful care of Anders. He is a very active little boy and Mary has been able to run him all over town and keep up with him.   We hate to see her go but our circumstances have changed we no longer need a nanny. Mary is gem and any family would be extremely lucky to have her.

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 (now 8 and 5) adore our amazing nanny Catherine. Catherine was with our family for six years since my son Tate was 3 months old and transitioned to our regular babysitter when they started school. My children love her so much. They would 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 was always focused on our children, never distracted by her phone. She would always be 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 at 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.

Mynette has been our full time nanny and I highly recommend her. She is a true professional that is reliable, trustworthy and loving of our girls.We were new parents when we hired Mynette to work for us full time and she literally taught us how to be good parents, and nurtured our daughter into a social and smart toddler. Mynette has a unique balance of being a self-starter who takes charge, jumps in to get things done without needing a lot of direction, but is also extremely easy and accommodating in following our instructions and preferences. This was perfect for us as new parents who needed a caretaker who knew what to do, but could easily pivot and take direction as we developed our parenting style. Mynette has also proven to be resourceful on many occasions: whether it’s taking my daughter to see the doctor, attend music classes, or buying my daughter a new water bottle as she noticed she wasn’t drinking from her sippy cup. She organizes play dates with other toddlers in the neighborhood. She’s also great about informing me on things my daughter needed like new clothes, toys, items to aide in development, or snacks she liked. Some exceptional things that Mynette brings to the table: She has a deep understanding of children’s development and how to reach and exceed milestones She is exceptionally punctual and reliable Completely trustworthy and honest An exceptionally hardworking multitasker Gentle, patient and kind Our daughters love her and she loves them She is the best in the business with 10+ years of experience and I highly recommend Mynette.
