Dear families, We are a french couple with twin girls and we have been living in New York for a little while, but we are now unfortunately leaving the city and therefore leaving our fantastic nanny Kemica. She will be available FULL TIME from March 1st onwards. and is preferably looking for TWINS around Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope area. In short, Kemica is energetic, determined and a very kind and happy person. On top of all that she is absolutely fantastic with kids. When I first started researching I had originally planned to interview many nannies with twin experience but when I met Kemica who was at the time taking care of a singleton I called all other nannies to cancel the interviews as she was the right fit for our family: Kemica is passionate about what she does and it is obvious straight away. Kemica has 3 children her own and treated ours as if they were hers. She started with us when the girls were 5 months old and she has been a huge contribution to the girls’ development and well-being. She knows kids very well having worked with many. She always has good advice when needed on how to deal with the flue, diaper rashes, food diversification, new gear etc. The Cobble Hill/Brooklyn Heights area has no secrets for her. She has been working here for a while and knows all the playdates, story times, music classes and other children activities available around. And during the day when she is out with the girls, she always keeps us informed on what they do with pictures and videos which is very reassuring for working parents like us! Kemica is very lively, she sings, laughs, and is generally a very happy person which has definitely had an impact on our kids: they are also very happy children who smile a lot, and aren’t fussy for no reason. She is also very respectful on what we ask for: we ask her to keep us informed on the girls’ feeding during the day, not to be on her phone in front of them, to have them nap in quiet places. In the whole time we employed her she has not been sick once and she is punctual. She is also very flexible with schedules which is important for us as we are both working parents. We love her, our girls love her, if you hire her you will love her too! Please contact her directly for an interview or me with any questions

Parent Reference
Rookmin Rivera (a.k.a. Janelle) worked with us as a full time nanny since April 2013 (5+ years). Janelle joined our family when our boys were just 2 and 5 years old, and was responsible for taking complete care of the kids as well as well as helping me generally around the house with things like laundry, light cleaning, cooking and generally pitching in wherever she was needed. From the beginning, Janelle fit in so easily to our family, as her always pleasant and easy-going nature make her a joy to have around. My parents and relatives also consider Janelle part of the family as she has been such a invaluable and reliable helper to us. Janelle has a rare combination of kindness and strictness that served our family well, as she often took over for me as a second mom to the boys since I was in grad school the last 4 years and my husband often travells overseas. Extremely trustworthy and reliable, one of Janelle’s greatest qualities is her excellent judgment. Having raised her own 2 children, Janelle has the experience that any mother would wish for in a nanny, and the ability to handle any situation with a calm and clear head. In 5 years I have never seen her lose her temper or yell at the children, which is a small miracle. My husband and I would occasionally go on overnight trips and trust Janelle to stay at our home with the kids for a day or two without needing to give her instructions. I always knew that when I left home she was more than capable of caring for them like I would. Janelle always went the extra mile for us and would try her best to accommodate our schedule for weekend babysitting and other special occasions. I often relied on Janelle’s impressive social skills for the boys activities. She would make friends with other nannies and schedule playdates for the boys without having to bother me with all the logistical details, although she always asked my permission and made sure I was completely in the loop on things. She is very adept at getting around the New York City with the kids, and comfortable taking public transportation, as well as juggling various school pickups and playdates. Janelle is also very confident in the kitchen and is a fabulous cook; there is nothing she can't make or is afraid to try. In summary, Janelle is nothing less than a fantastic nanny and a really lovely person who I have completely trusted for 5 years with most precious belongings…my boys. Anyone would be lucky to have her in their employ, and we will miss her dearly. I am quite certain we will not be able to find anyone like her again!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tarna Stanislaus for a full-time nanny position. Tarna has worked with our family over a year and has helped raise my two daughters. Owing to her exceptional work ethics and childcare talents, she will become an asset to your family. Throughout the time Tarna worked with my family, she recognized herself a dedicated and dependable individual. Tarna came to work for me when my daughters now (22 months and 41/2 years) were only 8months and 3years old. Instantly my daughter fell inlove with Tarna and they look forward to spending time with her. One of Tarna's greatest strengths in my opinion, is her ability to be flexible, yet maintain discipline - something which I'd not very easy to do. Tarna knows childcare work extremely well. She can devote the same amount of time to my girls for their nourishment. I have never come across any complaints from them. Tarna arrived on time everyday Monday - Friday at 9am where she would be handed my youngest (8months at the time) and would take charge of her daily schedule. She took her to the parks, library and baby classes. Tarna would also feed her lunch that I had prepared, and regulate baby's rest time. At 2:30pm, Tarna would pick my then 3 year old from preschool and keep both girls engaged either at the park, or museum (weather permitted), before taking them home to feed dinner before giving them a bath. Tarna is always cheerful and ready to engage the girls with creative art, dramatic play and other enriching activities at home on bad weather days. That said, she always followed my direction in regards to the children ( food, bathtime etc. ) and they respected her as an authority figure. I would then show up at 6pm which is when Tarna would leave. As the days got colder, Tarna's schedule slightly shifted to 8:30am - 5:30pm but her responsibilities remained the same. Only that I would now feed the girls dinner and bath them, which for me was perfect as I got to spend more quality time with them. Tarna's sole responsibility was caring for my children as we have cleaners coming twice a week. Despite the fact that Tarna has two amazing children of her own that my family had the pleasure meeting, she seldomly if ever requested a day off or was ever late to work. As a friendly and fun individual, Tarna will be able to provide good mentorship to your family. She is also intelligent, kind and a great listener. By hiring Tarna, you can be assured that you won't get a person who lounges around while your children are left to fend for themselves. I wish Tarna the best of luck for her future employment. Please do not hesitate to contact me at ( 646-831-2786) if you need any more information regarding Tarna's childcare abilities.

It is my pleasure to recommend Maria Costi as a nanny. Maria started working with us as a full-time nanny on August 2017. When she started working with us our son was 10 months old and he is currently 28 months. She was responsible for all aspects of his care including feedings, putting him down for naps, cleaning and sterilizing the bottles and pacifiers among other things. When needed would bring him to doctor’s appointments, ran errands like food shopping or picking something up from the pharmacy. When we hired Maria, we had recently relocated to NYC and were not really familiar with what the city had to offer for a small child. From the beginning Maria took it upon herself to arrange play dates and organize outings to the park, playground or library with other nannies/kids, and made sure he spent plenty of time outside and in the company of other kids his age. Through her networking with other nannies and parents, our son now has a close group of friends. When Maria first started working with us, our son was really struggling with naps and bed time. Maria was a lifesaver as she walked us through the whole sleep training process. As new parents we learned a lot from Maria’s experience as a nanny, but at the same time she always respected our preferences and followed our instructions. Maria is always in a good mood and full of energy, positive energy. She is reliable, responsible, punctual, flexible, neat and tidy. Most important, she is kind, caring, warm and loving with our baby. As an added bonus, she is fully bilingual (English and Spanish). Unfortunately, we are moving out of the area but we wish we could bring Maria with us. Any family that she chooses will be lucky to have her.

Joyce is a reliable, flexible and punctual nanny that has been with our family for 6 years. She started with our family when my daughter was 4 months old and stayed with us until our daughter was six years old and our son was 3 years old. We recently relocated to Westchester and needed to have a nanny that could drive. We were so sad to part ways, but she is still a member of our family and visits us very often. I can’t say anything but wonderful things about her as a nanny. When the children were infants, she was great at teaching me how to start feeding them, bathing them, etc. As they grew, she was instrumental in teaching them their ABCs, playing educational games with them and singing them songs. She is also amazing at finding after school activities, setting up play dates and keeping the children active. She is incredibly outgoing and personable and that has helped our children make new friends as she is great at building relationships with other local nannies. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] to discuss further. I would love to set up time to talk.

Chhoten is a wonderful nanny from Nepal. She worked with our family for a year to care for our son from the time he was a newborn. We moved out of Manhattan and she helped us transition to the suburbs - doing a much longer commute. She is now looking for a family in New York City. I can’t say enough good things about her. She is young with a lot of energy for creative play and out of home activities. She has a wonderful calm and nurturing demeanor. She is extra clean and tidy and execute tasks to a T.

Stephanie is reliable, trustworthy and loves our girls as if they are her own children. She has cared for both of our girls from the start and has always put them first. She spends time playing games, reading books, teaching and making sure they have excellent social skills. Stephanie is great about meeting other nannies to ensure our children had a very large social circle and always had opportunities for play dates. For example, our older daughter (now 5 years) met her best friend at 6 months due to the friendly nature of Stephanie, who befriended another nanny caring for a child the same age. Our girls are still best friends to this day. Stephanie is looking for a new loving family due to our relocation from Manhattan. We are incredibly sad to lose her but are thankful to have found her and know we will continue to stay connected in the years to come; she has never missed a birthday party for either of our girls, always asks to FaceTime them and is already planning to visit us in the suburbs.

Maria has 12 years experience working as a nanny for families in Brooklyn with excellent references from her employers. We paid for her Infant/Child CPR class two years ago. Happy to provide resume, references and background check. She has been with us for two years and raised our daughter (Charlie) like her own with an unbelievable amount of love, patience, and thoughtful care. We're moving to Dallas this Spring and would love to find her a good home. Maria is that perfect balance of nurturing and extremely hard-working. The woman doesn't sit still. She did all of Charlie's laundry, kept her room and play areas tidy, prepared all of her healthy lunches and dinners, made new friends for Charlie in the neighborhood, organized countless playdates on her own, and took her outside whenever possible (museums, parks, classes etc.) From six months to 2.5 years, Maria has been great at every developmental stage and incredibly focused on Charlie’s growth, e.g., talking to her non-stop (in Spanish per our preference), playing with puzzles, singing songs, reading books, creating art projects, and teaching her animals, colors, letters and numbers. Unlike Charlie’s parents, Maria never resorts to screen time and manages to get her dressed/eating/napping/out the door without a fight. When we both go out of town, she spends the night at our apartment with Charlie, providing us with so much peace of mind. Her happy demeanor is such a joy to be around, we love her like family and will miss her terribly!

Shenneth is an absolute GEM! She has been with us for 4 years, and became part of our family. She started with us when my daughter was 5 months old and now takes care of my 4.5 year old daughter and my 2 year old son. She is ideal for a family with a newborn as her experience with young children is evident. She is someone that would be able to grow with a family. She handles everything from cooking for the children, establishing a schedule, maintaining their rooms/ playroom, children’s laundry and setting up play dates/ activities. She is honest, reliable and punctual. Shenneth has been a loving and caring person to our children and they both love her and look at her as family! She always prioritizes their well-being and safety. She has a true gift of always being a step ahead and is able to seamlessly set up healthy boundaries for the children. We have gotten unsolicited feedback from other parents regarding her love and care for our kids. Our job description has changed and we have nothing but best wishes for her. Shenneth is not only a great nanny but will also become a great member of your family. She came to use with 15 years of experience and with a solid reference.

Words do not do justice for how much our nanny, Chanie, has meant to us. We had the pleasure of having Chanie work for us full time for over two years, caring for our daughter since she was an infant. Chanie is kind, caring, gentle, and holds a loving and motherly disposition. She shared a special bond with my daughter that was so sweet - I often overheard her singing to her while I was getting ready in the morning or the noise of joy and laughter through the door when I came home from work. She was constantly coming up with creative songs, games, and activities for them to play together as well as daily reading. We have never once seen her not fully engaged and focused on our daughter’s well-being. In many ways, Chanie helped us to become stronger parents, giving helpful guidance without pushing and always taking our lead on decisions. Chanie is extremely safe and careful with children. She was able to actively keep up with my busy daughter on the playground while helping for her to make friends with other young children. She helped me as a working Mom by meeting me at various doctors appointments as needed for my daughter throughout the city. At a young age by daughter needed to have physical therapy, and Chanie was able to take her several times per week to the appointments and meet with the therapists. I trusted her to do this and the doctors there all had wonderful things to say to me about Chanie. Chanie is extremely responsible and dependable – she was never late in the 2 years she worked for us. She is neat, tidy and professional. Chanie is also an excellent cook and was dedicated to preparing nutritious meals for our daughter (who is quite a picky eater!). We feel forever grateful that she was able to help our family during this point in our lives as we raised our first baby. If we were able to bring Chanie with us when we moved to the suburbs, we would have happily done so! Please reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to speak about her further or contact her directly.

I unfortunately have to part with my nanny (Vee), and I would love her to find a wonderful family. I am a single mother (with sole custody) and a CEO. Vee became my nanny when Inga was 6 months old.

Roseth “Suzette” Kerr worked for us for nearly ten years as a nanny to our two daughters. She entered our lives two months after our first daughter Annabel was born and was immediately very connected to our daughter and her needs. Suzette is incredibly attentive and gives the utmost care and attention, making us feel always at ease that our children are in great hands. She is great at balancing childcare with all her other duties such as cleaning up the kids rooms and toys, children’s laundry and ironing and light cooking. Suzette will also address any area she sees needs attention such as vacuuming and toy sanitizing. After our second daughter Emilia was born two years later, Suzette was very helpful in our transition to a family of four and easily took on the work of two girls after our baby nurse left four weeks later. She has been a wonderful teacher to the girls; instilling good values, manners, and teaching early learning skills such as sensory development, shape sorting, letter recognition and phonics. Suzette is also very good about planning activities, whether it’s taking them to the playground, the library, or various play dates. She always checks with us first before planning anything as well. Suzette also takes her work very seriously and is incredibly punctual and does only child-care related or household related activities during the day (she only uses her cell phone in rare instances and mainly to confirm a play date or call me to ask a question). Her gentleness and patience are without limit. Lastly, Suzette’s flexibility has also been an incredible asset for us, as she can help out late almost any night we need her. We no longer needed a nanny when we left New York City, but we continue to keep in touch with Suzette and have her visit us in Bryn Mawr, PA as well as East Hampton, NY in the summer. My daughters are always excited to see her and we also FaceTime with Suzette on occasion as well. I am happy to talk on the phone if you have any questions. We wish her the best of luck with her new job, but we will definitely stay in touch with our dear Suzette.

Denise lived with us for 9 years, and became part of our family. She helped raise our children from infancy, and established close relationships with each of them. They are now older, so we didn't need the same degree of childcare, but we were so sad to see Denise go. She had special relationships with our children, and would engage them in activities that specifically interested each one of them (including sports, arts and crafts, etc.). She was responsible, punctual, dependable, loving, and great with kids. Also, she is mature and hard working. She was able to take on additional household responsibilities in addition to childcare, including (kosher) cooking and cleaning. I recommend Denise wholeheartedly. You would be lucky to have her with your family!

We will be moving out of NYC so I’m writing to let you know that our wonderful nanny Nikita, will be available and is looking for a full time position starting as early as the ending of January/ beginning of February. While we are excited about our move, to say that we are devastated to leave Niki is no understatement.  Niki has been caring full time for our two kids since the first was 3 months old, for a little over 6 years. She has an energetic and friendly nature and my children always beams when she walks in the door. She happily takes them to music and gym classes, play dates and the Park and is creative with the rest of their time, always talking to my kids and making their time together fun and interesting. She is patient and loving with them and has been a great teacher. She helped to get them both on a regular schedule as an infant, introduced them to solids (she is a great cook!) and has transitioned them to one nap as toddlers. Niki is punctual and helpful around the apartment, cooking healthy meals and tidying up the kitchen, the kids rooms and the apartment after them.  In addition, Niki is incredibly trustworthy and reliable, always leaving me with a feeling of confidence that my children are in the best of hands and that they will be having a great day together. She has been a real partner to me and my husband and had a significant role in raising our children, now 6 and 3. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we are going to miss her so much and would really love to help her find a great family before we go.

Nanda has been a full time caregiver for two children (boy - 8 years, girl - 5 years) for the last 4.5 years. She has worked full time with us and prior to us- with another family in our building with two children for 5 plus years. Nanda is experienced, reliable, punctual, caring and understands the need for dependable help. We have always been full time working parents and having the dependability of Nanda’s care with our family has been invaluable and unwavering. Given that our children are now in school full time, the hours are shifting and our needs have changed. We provide our highest recommendation for Nanda in finding a new family to work with. She is an asset to any family. An ideal position would be on UWS but Nanda is flexible. Nanda has a calm disposition under all circumstances and understands parent needs, children varying schedules, and parent schedules/travel. Nanda helps arrange playdates, helped bring our children to doctor appointments, etc. She respects the privacy of the family as well. She has a family of her own that are helpful as well. Nanda has never been late, is a professional, and understands the role of a full time nanny. We give our highest recommendation and can provide another family reference as well.

Rebecca is an amazing nanny. She was with our family for 6 years and took wonderful care of my daughters. My daughters love her dearly. She is a hard worker who takes her job extremely seriously and is proud of her work. She was 100% focused on our children when she was with them. I never felt any anxiety or worry about where my children were or what they were doing, and I always felt reassured knowing they were with someone who loved them and enjoyed being with them. Over the years, many people have told me how lucky we were to have such a fantastic nanny. I’ve heard this from other mothers, who have seen Rebecca with the kids at the playground or school. I've also heard it from teachers, including a veteran teacher who taught one of my daughters in preschool. She got to knew Rebecca and my daughter over the year. I never asked her about Rebecca, but this teacher went out of her way to tell me that she was one of the best nannies she had ever met—incredibly engaged, thoughtful and loving. I’m so deeply touched by Rebecca’s love for my children. I realized early on that she was not just focused on the immediate tasks of feeding them, entertaining them and keeping them safe. She cares enormously about their development as people. She actively instilled good values (kindness, generosity, respect) in them and wanted them to be strong and resilient. She cared deeply about developing their minds and read to them often. She was so proud to see how they developed and often talked about her hopes for their futures. Rebecca is also one of the cleanest and tidiest people I know. Every evening, my husband and I would come home to an orderly and tidy home - but one where we knew lots of fun was happening throughout the day. She has a knack for keeping things organized and managing clutter. She is full of energy and enjoys playing outside with the kids. She is friendly and sociable, and our children had a wide network of friends in the neighborhood. But she's also cautious, and there were occasions when she felt that other children or their environments were not good influences on our children, and she steered away from those. I would be happy to tell you more about our time with Rebecca. Feel free to reach out.

She’s also extremely reliable, drives, always on time, caring, does his laundry and light housekeeping. Most of all, my son ADORES her. They have a special bond.

Our Outstanding nanny is looking for a full-time position in New York Aggie has been a fantastic nanny for our daughter from the age of 4 months to almost two years old (Aggie is a certified specialist in newborn care). However, now that one of us is taking a break from work and staying home with the little one, we are hoping to find her a full-time position with a loving family. Aggie exceeded our high expectations as a guardian and companion for our daughter. She has been extremely reliable and always on top of safety concerns. When coming home from work early during naptime, we would find her waiting right outside the nursery with her ears wide open. At a playground, Aggie would watch her like a hawk. An example of her going above and beyond the call of duty was her diligence in arranging playdates. We could see the joy in our daughter's eyes when she would return from one of these get-togethers. Aggie planned it all. Despite working in our Upper East Side neighborhood for the first time, Aggie quickly branched out to create this network. Now our daughter has a group of friends! She became a part of the family in the almost two years that she worked for us, and we feel invested in advocating for her next job because we want another family to have the same outstanding care for their child or children. With a few day's advance notice, she was almost always able to shift her hours around to work with our schedule. She came to us highly recommended from her previous employer, a family with several children including one with special needs. She has also trained and worked as a home health attendant. Aggie's extensive experience in childcare made her a valuable advisor in raising our child, and it shows in her patience, initiative, and problem-solving skills--we can't recommend her highly enough. We welcome any inquires by email and/or schedule a phone call.

TWIN EXPERT Jennipher has been caring for our twin boys for the past 2+ years, and will be available to start with a new family in March. Having cared for 8(!) sets of twins, Jennipher has expertise and confidence that have been so helpful to us as first time parents. She started with us when our boys were 4 months old and put them on a schedule, took them to classes, organized playdates, and stimulated their brains and bodies with age-appropriate books, songs, and activities. She loves to cook, and has exposed my children to many different foods and flavors. They are good eaters because of her. Jennipher has helped us through so many transitions – solid foods, nap transitions, pacifier elimination – and has made them all a breeze. She’s very proactive about the kids’ development and ensures we’re always challenging them by learning new things (colors, ABCs, numbers) and/or developing physically (crawling, walking, jumping, etc). She is a U.S. citizen and able to travel, and she is also able to stay late or sleep over on occasion. She is outgoing, caring, trustworthy, friendly, honest, cheerful, and smart. We are moving out of the city, which is why she’ll soon be available.

Debra is a very trustworthy and reliable person who was there at every turn over many years for my two daughters. She worked with our family for nearly a decade. She was always punctual and professional, and I never for one second worried about leaving my children with her in any situation. I felt that she genuinely loved my daughters and did her best to keep them safe and sound and to teach them good manners and respect for others. Although Debra’s schedule varied over the years, she typically worked from between 40-45 hours a week. She was responsible for a broad array of child-related tasks, including getting the girls to and from all of their activities, organizing play dates, fixing their meals, and dressing and bathing them, and she also performed a substantial amount of housework such as washing dishes and doing laundry, light cleaning, and other similar tasks. My late wife was stricken with a terminal illness, which she battled for nearly five years, and during this time Debra assumed a larger role in taking care of my girls, and in some senses also helping to take care of my late wife. My job is very demanding, so even though I tried hard to be around as much as I possibly could, there’s really no way that my girls’ lives could have moved forward in a normal way had Debra not stepped up to the plate. Very simply stated, she loved the girls as best she could, and they loved her right back. Unfortunately, as the girls grew older and their schoolwork became ever more consuming and demanding, my needs shifted more toward needing someone who is primarily a tutor/academic coach. This shift in my needs in no way reflects negatively on Debra or on what she did for my family and what she meant (and still means) to all of us. She was a wonderful, top-notch nanny who saw my girls through many very difficult situations, and I truly do consider her a member of the family. Losing her is personally painful and difficult, but I believe that she will be a wonderful asset to another family. Best, Josh

Her duties including caring for my baby, keeping his area clean, landry, and light house keeping. As my child got older she also took him to different activities that I scheduled.

She starting caring for my son when he was an infant and he is now 4.5 and then we had out daughter (who is now 2). She is the most loving and attentive nanny I have every observed. She is never on her phone when she is with the kids, she is down on the floor talking to them, reading books, making up games. She loved my kids as if they were her own, which makes me feel so good about them being with her during the day. Beyond being an amazing caregiver she is also very flexible, which was invaluable for us as working parents. She was always able to stay late, do the odd overnight, come early if we need her. She also was a quick learner, picking up how I wanted to parents the kids or clean the house. She is rare find and I am so sad about losing her!

Parent Reference
Looking for a nanny, it can be scary to think you’re going to trust a stranger with the welfare of your children. However, Karimah is a person that eliminates that fear by showing an endless reserve of love, support and care your children deserve. Karimah has been with us for close to 4 years, taking care of our boy/girl twins since they were 6 months old. She has been taking care of twins for 20 years and it shows. As two daddies in the Union Square area, we were a little overwhelmed starting with twins but she was able to bring order to our household while still letting us feel like were the parents. When a parent is present Karimah seamlessly fills in the cracks, cleaning up a spill or finding a lost toy, so that you can enjoy quality time with your child. When the parent is away then Karimah steps in without missing a beat. Karimah is 100% trustworthy with responsibility, money and most importantly your family. You can rely on her to organize activities, prepare healthy meals and enrich your children’s lives on a daily basis. Ours is a household that doesn’t allow iPads or other screens around the children so you can feel secure that she will not just park your kid in front of the TV for a couple hours while she takes a break; when she is working she is entirely present with the children. Karimah will be a wonderful caretaker for your children. As you scroll through other profiles on various websites all the candidates begin to look the same after a while but know that Karimah is different. It’s hard to explain but you’ll understand when you meet her: she radiates warmth and kindness that touches everyone in her life. It is a kindness that will be reflected in your children as they develop. The only reason that Karimah is moving on is because our twins are starting school full time. We are so sad to see Karimah go but have enjoyed our time with her so much. We hope she will continue to remain in our lives as a friend for a long, long time.

Carmi is a miracle worker. She is kind, gentle, firm, thoughtful, authoritative and has good instincts. She was with us for 6 years. She helped us raise our son Luca (6) and was amazing when we welcomed Graham (2). They are both obsessed with her and are exceptional young boys because of her influence. Carmi understands a child’s need for routine, stability and love in a parent’s absence. She reads, plays, follows my educational queues and is wonderful at giving them a nurturing presence. Carmi is also smart and quick to follow my lead on shifts in the house or routine. She cooks, keeps our apartment clean and is always organizing or weeding out things we don’t need in the children’s room ( clothes that don’t fit, toys that are broken etc.). She also can handle dr. appointments and report back word for word what happened, a huge relief for a working mamma. You can basically check out of your home life from 8am to 6pm, M-F without blinking. Not that you would. But you could! I don’t use those words lightly. Carmi has it covered. Carmi is available immediately and prefers to work uptown because she lives in the Bronx. Please call me (718) 213-2785 or her (616)670-8857 for interviews.

She is very safety conscious and speaking from past experiences was a "saving grace" during the 911 World Trade Center attacks in 2001 by helping me locate and pick up my children from school and keeping them safe and secure, while not worrying about herself and how she would get back home. She is very trusting and has children of her own whom I watched grow up and have turned into lovely young ladies. I feel Lalita would be a great asset to your family as a full time nanny. She listens and follows directions well and will inquire if there is something that needs to be explained more in depth.

We are looking for a new home for a wonderful nanny Shanta. She is an ideal nanny for a baby, as she is loving, caring and loyal. She will love you child like her own. Shanta has a great sense of humor and playful demeanor that we believe had a really great impact on our daughter. Shanta is also flexible, listens to your needs and follows your instructions. A little bit on how she tended to her responsibilities: When our daughter started eating food, Shanta would cook delicious fruit and vegetable purees for her. Shanta loved doing bath time and would make it an enjoyable ritual for our daughter. Shanta also loved taking our daughter on walks to get fresh air. I asked her to keep a log of her schedule which she did diligently. Other responsibilities included cleaning and organizing everything related to the baby: clothing, bottles, toys, room etc. Shanta traveled around the world with us (she is a US citizen) and loved sleeping in the same room with our daughter and even being up with her in the middle of the night when she had jet lag! Shanta never complained about being tired, she was overly accommodating and wonderful. More than anything, what was important us was that we found in Shanta someone who is just a really good person and would do anything for people she loves. She is very loyal. We tried to take good care of her and she took really good care of us. She was on time every morning, and hardly ever took a day off. She takes pride in her work and enjoys her work. You can trust her to love and care for your baby wholeheartedly.

Our wonderful former nanny, Dianne, is looking for a new full-time position. She was with us for 9 years and had started with us when our first child was an infant. When my kids were babies and toddlers, she took them to music and gym classes, got on the floor and played with them, read and sang to them and was amazing about arranging play dates for them. She also cooked for them, bathed them, did their laundry and kept everything organized and clean. Over the years, I have been told many times by other parents, teachers and friends that we have one of the best nannies in the neighborhood. We believe it. Our kids adore her. She is a warm and happy person who has tremendous judgment. Our trust in her over the 9 years was earned and unwavering. Unfortunately, since we moved out of the city, we had to part ways. Dianne still keeps in touch with us and my kids were absolutely ecstatic when she surprised them with a recent visit to our new home. Dianne is trained and certified in First Aid and CPR and has completed a clean background check. If you have questions at all about Dianne, please feel free to contact me.

It is my honor to recommend my incredible Nanny Lisa Slater . Lisa is a talented, intelligent, special person who has helped mould my Children into Happy, polite, social kids. Lisa has been our Nanny for 3 years and 3 months from when my son first Atom was6 months old he is now 3 1/2 and we welcomed a new addition to our family Orion who is almost 1 year old. Lisa treats them with love and respect ad demonstrates the importance of sharing, cooperation , and friendship. The kids love and adore her. Orion is with Lisa all day. Through reading, games, and play Andrea engages him constantly. She talks and sings to him constantly, which has definitely contributed to Orion's remarkable progress. He can finger feed himself, hold his bottle and he is on his way to walking for his 1st birthday. Lisa has established a routine for Orion from the beginning so everyday is bath, Nap, music class and get fresh air at the playground. Atom goes to School from 9am-3pm 3 days of the week and 2 days at a playgroup class 9am-12pm. Lisa takes them to the playground, Library, music classes and playdates. she always finds engaging fun activities for the kids to do in the summertime including visits to the children's museum, ferry rides to Dumbo and Long Island city, playgroups etc. Lisa established a network of Nannies with the same age who are among my kids closet friends. Lisa is incredibly trustworthy. I leave each day feeling confident that my kids would be safe, happy and engaged. She and I have excellent communication and understanding. I offer you my highest possible recommendation for Lisa as a Nanny. She is amazing and very special to our family. Any family would be tremendously fortunate to have Lisa care for their children. We would love Lisa to be our nanny forever, but we are moving to upstate New York. Lisa can be reached at 347-922-6184. Lisa is available to begin a new position at the end of February beginning of March.

We can only say terrific things about our beloved nanny. She has been with our family for almost 15 years. She took care of three kids--starting with our son from a few months old (he is now 15), and then our two daughters from birth (now aged 13 and 10). She is a part of our family and we adore her. She is kind, wise, patient, and deeply invested in the kids' well being. She takes their feelings and safety incredibly seriously and we absolutely trust her judgment. When needed, she helps with homework, make playdates, take the kids to doctors and other appointments and she knows our kids' friends, friends' parents and teachers, and is trusted and beloved by all. The kids are disappointed when she is off work and call her on weekends. She is also exceptionally trustworthy, devoted and responsible and takes care of things around the house. She takes the initiative to prepare healthy meals for the kids, run errands for things they need and calls after hours if she remembered something that came up that she wanted to make sure we knew about the kids' day. When the kids were babies, she read to them, took them to classes, and was always incredibly attentive and loving. We feel privileged to have had her help us raise our children and be part of our family.

Marguerita has been a very important part of our family for over 6 years. She is beyond incredible in every way...she is loving, kind, friendly, energetic, very smart and well-educated and articulate. She is amazing with our kids - who are now 11 and 15 - and has been the most wonderful partner to me in helping me balancing career and family. Marguerita has helped my children with their homework (better than I can!), plans activities and cooks for them. She is CPR trained/certified and also spent time as a nurse in her home in St. Lucia. She treats my boys as if they are her own, and has a deep-rooted love for both of them as well as me and my husband - and we all feel the same way about her. Given that my kids are now older and don't require the same level of care as a full-time nanny, we are looking to help Marguerita find a job working with another local family in the Bococa, Downtown Brooklyn, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace area for the first part of the day so that she can be with us in the afternoon through evening. I can't say enough wonderful things about Marguerita and know that any family would be beyond lucky to have her in their lives!

Part time nanny available! My amazing nanny is looking for another family to work with on Mondays and Tuesdays. She has been really wonderful with my 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son for the past year and a half, and came to us highly recommended as well. She is always on time and she is very reliable, extremely playful with both of my kids, outgoing with other nannies/makes playdates, organizes toys, and helps keep my apartment clean. She has developed such a sweet bond with both of my kids (who have very different personalities), and they both love her and are so excited to see her each week. She is extremely responsible, smart, and pleasant to be around. She is really wonderful.

Liz has been our Nanny for the last year. Unfortunately our situation has changed so we are trying to help her find a new Nanny position. Liz started with us when our son was 4 months old and has helped us through the many stages of an infant to toddler. As a first time Mom who works, it was extremely calming to know my son was in good hands while I was gone. She takes him to the Little Gym, the library for story time, playgrounds, and play dates with neighborhood kids. Liz does his laundry, cleans his room, and washes his bottles. She also cooks for him and makes extra for our family which is incredibly helpful after a long day. By the time we get home from work, he is always bathed, in his PJs, and ready for dinner. We will be sad to see her go. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Our former nanny, Pinky, is available immediately for full-time work, about 50 hours/week. Pinky is the ideal combination of being kind, genuinely loving, dependable, and trustworthy. - She is very punctual and always arrives to work a few minutes early. She is also accommodating and has adapted her schedule based on our needs (e.g., arriving half an hour early when I had to be at work or even to accompany me in taking my daughter to the outer boroughs for 8:30 a.m. doctor's appointments). - Pinky goes above and beyond in bringing our daughter to attend as many fun activities and classes around our neighborhood as possible every day, including playgrounds, libraries, and music classes. She sets up playdates with other children my daughter's age and encourages socialization and friendship. From day one she has been singing songs and playing games with our daughter. - Pinky cooks all of our daughter's meals and has gotten her to love varied foods such as lentils, cauliflower, eggplant, roti, and all kinds of Indian dishes (although neither my husband nor I are Indian). She also lets me know well in advance when I need to get more milk, fruit, or anything else from the supermarket. - She is diligent about tidying up, washing dishes, and doing the laundry--often three loads a week. - Most importantly, Pinky loves our daughter, protects her, and knows her deeply. When I send her pictures during the weekend, she can tell if my daughter is hungry, sleepy, scared, or excited, just from the expression on her face. I cannot recommend Pinky more highly, and know she would be a valuable addition to any family.

We are posting to provide a reference for our nanny, Joan. Unfortunately, we no longer need a full time nanny and she is looking for a full time position with a new family. Joan is a very caring, reliable and experienced professional and she has been an excellent caregiver for our son for nearly 3 years. She was especially helpful to us in providing our son, starting at only a few months of age, with a structure for play, eating and getting ready for bedtime. She was very flexible in adapting her hours to our schedule as two working parents and we never had to worry about her arriving on time. She was also available to stay late when necessary. Joan has been a nanny for 20+ years and has 3 (adult) children of her own so she comes with tremendous experience. She shows great patience with our children and is very good-natured and good humored generally. Given her experience, she also has many contacts in the Upper West Side and Upper East Side and was always able to find play dates throughout the day. Her experience with children from a young age truly shines through. She is also a very honest person – she truly is someone who I felt comfortable with immediately. I could list a lot of her other great qualities here. I would be very happy to speak on the phone and provide a complete and honest reference. She is looking to work in Manhattan (she has worked primarily on the Upper West Side and Upper East Side).

We have been extremely blessed to have the most whole hearted and nurturing nanny for four years. Stefanie is golden, she was truly amazing with my kids and they would light up when she comes around. Taught our kids how to be respectful and have manners. Stefanie is very responsible and protective over my kids. I have always felt safe when Stefanie is with my kids and I never had to worry when she drove them to activities or playdates. Stefanie is hardworking and willing to help in any way possible. She is a one in a million nanny. She will stay overtime willingly to allow you to take a break after work before bringing the children home. Stefanie was the Alpha in the group of nannies who took it upon herself to schedule playdates and activities which kept my children busy throughout the day. You can feel secure to know that Stefanie will not have your child (ren) seated in front of a screen during her breaks but will engage them with story times or encourage them to help her out in baking or cooking in the kitchen. She was extremely flexible and can always stay late or come over on weekends when needed. She was never tardy and I do not recall Stefanie ever calling in sick during her four years of employment with my family.

Quite simply, Jann has been a godsend for our family. She came to us when our daughter was four months old, and if it weren't for a change in our schedule, she'd be in our employ forever, so we want to help her find a great family. Like many first-time parents, we were extra terrified when it finally came time for to leave our daughter and return to work. Fortunately, we found Jann at the perfect time, and we've relied heavily on her ever since. Not only does our daughter scream with joy when she arrives every morning (always 5 minutes early), but the baby has blossomed into a thriving, happy and outgoing child. A great deal of the credit goes to Jann in that regard. Jann doesn't allow the baby to watch TV, so most of their day is spent reading books, going for walks, singing songs and playing and learning together. It's amazing to come home and find out that your daughter suddenly has the ability to wave goodbye, or that she knows where her eyes, ears and nose are on her face. We get frequent videos and photos throughout the day, with little updates about what they've been up to. This really helps a parent get through the day. In addition to the wonderful care that she gives our daughter, we always arrive home to a spotless apartment. The dishes are done, the baby's laundry is washed and folded, and the floors and tabletops are spotless. Needless to say, the time and hassle this saves us is huge. She also keep meticulous notes on the activities/meals/naps that have happened throughout the course of the day. Jann is dedicated, loyal, detail-oriented, hard working and extremely reliable. We hate to see her go, but we want to see her end up with a great family.

She is a joy to be around and a wonder with babies and incredible with small children and then larger children! Finding a nanny who can stay relevant can be difficult; but we found it! Any family looking for a new wonderful nanny should consider speaking to her! Donna has been a key member of our household and has assisted in raising our children every step of the way. She is responsible, kind, hard working, patient, trustworthy and has excellent instincts. Initially, I remember the relief I felt when I hired Donna and could see our son was in exceptionally capable (and loving) hands. She was instrumental in getting him on to a schedule. She kept notes of the schedules initially, prepared homemade food for him and spent the days interacting with him.Our son was an early talker and we credit Donna for much of that. She made sure that their days together were filled with time outside, crafts (when he grew old enough), games and reading - no television. Moreover, when our son's baby sister arrived, the transition to helping with two was seamless. In addition to being an amazing caregiver, Donna did a wonderful job maintaining our home. We would always return to a tidy home at the end of the day with the children clean so we could focus on just them during the little time we had before bedtime. We initially worked mega long hours and she always arrived on time. Moreover, Donna was often flexible with her schedule and willing to stay late, work weekends and even spend nights if we needed it. Our entire family adores her and wish to help her find her next great home/family. The family Donna chooses to work with will be in great hands... MORE DETAILS. US citizen, live out. Full time work ideally wanted. Flexible. Please reach out directly to Donna if interested in learning more. Her number is 646 644 7847. We are happy to speak and provide references of course.

Martina is amazing! She has over 20 years experience. She is golden-hearted, loving, kind, always reliable and extremely flexible (available a moment\\'s notice to work late, stay overnights). She has been with us since my son was weeks old and easily managed both of my kids after my daughter arrived. Our kids (now 1.5 years and 3.5 years) truly adore her - they light up when she comes in the room and miss her when she is not around. She is extremely patient with the children and has an incredible ability to calm them down, convert tears to laughter, and build a supportive and happy routine in their lives through consistency and care. She is such a positive presence in all our lives and very easy to communicate with. Martina, in many ways, is the glue that keeps our family together - my husband and I are quite busy with our jobs and we have complete faith in Martina’s ability to safely, lovingly, and independently care for the kids and our home, I have never worried once about the kids when they are under her excellent care. She has a flexible schedule and was able to stay late weeknights, help on weekends at request, and travel with us. Martina feeds, clothes, bathes, plays with the kids and attends to their every need. She is very active and loves to be outside with the children, in a park or at the playground. Multiple friends, doormen, family members tell us how wonderful she is with our kids. She has been a partner in raising our kids and I have learned so much from her about caring for children. We wish she could come with us to New Jersey, but the commute is too far. We will miss her dearly and hope to find her a wonderful new home.

Momattie worked full time with our two children (boy and girl) from when they were born through 5 years and then shifted to part time hours given family schedule changes. She still comes on weekends as our family and children maintain a wonderful relationship with her. Momattie is also someone we refer to as a \'baby whisperer\' with a magical touch. She is amazing with newborns, helping them eat, develop and thrive as they grow in their early precious early years. Momattie has tremendous experience and wisdom. She is always on time, respects the job and family privacy, always leaves a home tidy, and most importantly our children were very well cared for and felt loved. Her care, thoughtfulness and approach to child care, especially for young children or newborns is something that any family would benefit from. Momattie is open to full time position or regular/consistent part time position. We give her our highest recommendation.

Zinnel joined our family close to ten years ago when our oldest was six weeks old. She quickly became an expert in infant care. Then our second was born 14 months later and she excelled at watching the two together, even as they grew to two active boys. She continued to beautifully manage 3 when our daughter was born, and then 4 when my son was born. My kids adore her. She is amazingly reliable- DID NOT MISS EVEN ONE DAY IN ALL 9+ YEARS! We will miss her! Call or email for more info!

I have known Faye for a long time as a professional caregiver. She is a wonderful with both my 8 month old and 8 year old. My children smile when she walks in and hug her when she leaves. When they are with her, I know they are in the best hands possible. Faye is professional and honest. She does all that is needed for each child - from making baby food to singing and reading books. She picks-up my older daughter at school, takes her to after school activities and makes play dates. She juggles both children expertly. You know your children will be in great hands with Faye!
