I want to help my nanny of 7yrs Rhonda, find a new home!  I decided to post for her here because I'm confident that she will connect with an amazing family through this medium. Rhonda is available to start in 2 to 3 weeks.  Overall, I can't possibly say enough good things about Rhonda! She proved to be a great asset and was truly a blessing for us. She does everything a nanny is supposed to, and much more.  She loves and cares for my kids and my family, like we are her own!  She became part of our family, and my kids and I simply love her! Here are some additional details.  Please message me if interested, so I can tell you all the amazing things about her. Rhonda worked with us for 7 years.  Sadly, we are moving to Maryland in a few weeks and Rhonda will not be able to move with us, as much as we would like for her to.    I hired Rhonda because she was highly recommended by a friend whom she worked with part-time.   She has the ability to build connections with people and is still in contact with my friend who she babysits for on the weekends, if needed. Rhonda is very intelligent, and takes learning very seriously.  She taught my oldest daughter, who had a speech impairment, how to read and write at the age of 3, and started reading to my youngest daughter when she was only a few weeks old.  She does a phenomenal job helping them with homework, and recieved many compliments from their teachers.  She is great with all age groups!  She has been with us since my oldest daughter was 2yrs old and later our newborn whom she took outstanding care of.  I was able to return to work knowing my daughters were in great hands!   Rhonda helps out with just about anything & everything I need.  Sometimes, I don’t even have to ask.  She willingly undertakes tasks which are not within her scope of work  if needed to, without hesitation.   I could always count on Rhonda if we ever need her to do extra hours, she has never said no. The fact that she drives is a major asset and I trust her to drive my kids locally to events. She is proactive in arranging play dates and other activities  for my kids, to keep them busy. Rhonda is super conscientious! She was never late for work nor has she missed a day.

Birsen is an amazing nanny. She started when my daughter was only 2 weeks old. Birsen is full of energy, and is always taking my daughter out to play and have new experiences. She has guided my daughter through every stage seamlessly. She helped my daughter learn how sleep through the night, which has been such a blessing. She came over at midnight for a few nights to soothe my daughter when she woke up in the middle of the night, and get her back to sleep without food or formula. She went above and beyond for us! My daughter now sleeps about 12 hours straight every night, in her own bed. When my daughter first started eating, Birsen made her homemade gourmet baby food in the food processor every week. I am proud to say that my daughter has never eaten store-bought baby food, thanks to Birsen. She also weaned my daughter off bottles and pacifiers, which was quite a challenge and helped my husband and me immensely. She also helped us set schedules for my daughter, and adjusted the schedules according to my daughter’s needs and age. Birsen has helped my daughter become the loving, confident, and independent toddler she is today. I am starting my daughter in full-time nursery school in June, and we want to help her find a wonderful family.

If you are looking for an absolutely incredible, trustworthy, loving, experienced, fun, smart, full-time Nanny, our Daughter’s nanny, Kay, is the perfect person to join your family. It is with such a heavy heart that we are finding a new family for her as a result of my decision to be a full time stay at home mom. Any parent will be so lucky to work with Kay and any child will be so lucky to have her as their daily Nanny. Kay has been such a Godsend to our family and it’s with great sadness that we are parting ways. Kay has been with us for over a year. She started when our daughter was 1.5 after a move to NY. I had been at home for 7 months and I was worried it would be a difficult adjustment but Kay stepped into our lives so seamlessly. She takes such wonderful care of my daughter and you can tell she has such a passion for what she does. Kay was instrumental in helping us navigate many challenges with our daughter. She was key in creating a good routine for my daughter from activities and class suggestions, and beyond. Kay has created a little community for my Daughter and is always on the lookout to make play dates and park dates for her, and proactively takes her to the library, Central Park Zoo, The Met, the Childrens’ Museum, and more with her friends. She knows when to have fun and horse around, but is equally willing to teach her right from wrong. Kay keeps us involved too through texts, pictures, and routine monthly meetings to keep the lines of communication open. We always say that Kay does by herself what the two of us can only do together, but she does it better and with ease. She is extremely reliable, punctual and is always willing to accommodate our busy schedules by coming in extra early when asked. Other parents come up to us all the time gushing about how wonderful Kay is with our daughter. And as a parent this makes me beyond happy and grateful. On the weekends our daughter always asks when Kay is coming back. And before Kay leaves at nights she tells her she loves her. Our daughter is still smiling, happy, and listening to educational songs or reading books when we walk into the apartment in the evening. The apartment is always tody and all my daughters’ dishes and bottles are clean. My daughter adores Kay and we do too. Kay has experience with children of all ages, especially newborns, twins, families with multiple children, and even a child with autism. She came to us with glowing references from the last the family she was with for over 4yrs and has worked with other families around Brooklyn, NYC, CT, and beyond on a long-term basis. We recommend her without reservation. Kay can be contacted at (718) 200-3961 Feel free to contact me for reference as well (949) 903-1087

To the family considering Isidora Avalos (our beloved Isi): I’m tempted to be selfish, to not inform you of how truly wonderful Isi is – this way we could keep her nannying gifts all to ourselves. But, unfortunately, our child has become so busy with 1st Grade, after-school activities, and play dates that we’ve outgrown the need for a nanny. For over 5 years Isi has been an integral part of the family raising my daughter, Bayla, to be the happy, active, caring kid she is thus far. Since Bayla was 6 months old Isi has been providing loving, educational, adventurous, reliable care. Come to think of it, not just for Bayla, but for our whole extended family. Including tender care for our aging dog through his passing 2 years ago. Isi is the type of caregiver who doesn’t just read to Bayla, she creates a cozy, interactive, learning time with books. Doing voices, teaching words in English and in Spanish while still giving Bayla room to identify pictures, letters and numbers for herself. Isi doesn’t hesitate to roll around on the floor playing “sick” when Bayla is imagining she’s a doctor for the umpteenth time. The relaxed, fun reading with Isi has become even more important because as Bayla grows-up we’re discovering that she has a language arts-based learning disability. Isi’s unconditional support has helped Bayla confront her special learning needs with confidence, not fear. Isi is the type of caregiver who can orchestrate long, joyful days with Bayla assuming the responsibility of full-time parent while I’m am on shift. Her day with us typically lasts 15 hours. During that time Isi independently navigates Bayla’s playdates, playground romps, in-home time with dolls, trucks, kitchen and other toys, artsy projects, meals, light housework, laundry, personal hygiene and bedtime. Always punctual, often early, Isi also stays late without a peep of complaint (as often happens since I work in a Pediatric ER.) She asks for help when she needs it and takes instruction well, though she rarely needs that - keeping Bayla on a more consistent playing, learning, eating, bathing, etc. schedule than I (her mother) have ever managed to. She is a loving and fun addition to our family and always professional. If our family schedule hadn’t shifted to eliminate the need for additional care we\'d be moving forward with Isi without reservation. Don’t hesitate to call or write me if you want to know more or need specific questions answered.

Lea has been a godsend to our family and I literally cannot say enough great things about her. My heart is broken that I have lost my job due to the current crisis and we actually have to give her up... Hopefully our loss is your gain. Warm, loving, punctual, EXTREMELY sensible, smart, organized, active, professional… she is an absolute expert in kids from infancy up, and our son has been with her since he was 5 months. He’s now 2.5 and his face lights up when she walks in. We have 2 kids now and she handles it (and our tank of a stroller) so well, she makes it look easy. Our kids are constantly learning with her, we have been so pleased with my son’s social skills, and all the things he learns through their conversations, books, and adventures with friends. Both of them have busier social calendars than us! She is the one person that we don’t think twice about with the safety of our children, shes’ always 3 steps ahead… sorry grandma! Lastly, her discipline style is warm yet firm, and very consistent. Lea does light cleaning, TONS cooking for the kids, laundry for the kids, etc (she knew my son loved sushi so she took the time to shape new foods like sushi rolls to get him to eat it- thats the kind of person she is:) She's open to nanny shares, is great with multiples, and is always very flexible with staying late and coming early. Please direct any questions my way, it's my honor and privilege to be her reference.

Reference for Tenzin Lhaden Dearest Mum/Dad, Tenzin has taken care of our daughter for almost 2 years now. The only reason we are now parting ways is that our daughter goes to school full time (she is our only child). And I am personally very sad about it. We love Tenzin, she takes care of Roshni, our daughter, like her own. Playing with her, singing to her loving her during times when she isn’t well. She’s great at organizing play dates and other parents and nanny’s praise Tenzin endlessly. Tenzin is very thoughtful; she often brings surprises for Roshni which is such a sweet gesture. She also helps me keep our home tidy and does laundry which is very helpful. I rely on Tenzin and trust her fully. Sad to see her go, but we will be in touch always.

With a very heavy heart I am writing this recommendation for Nisha aunty (our nanny). Nisha aunty has over 18 years of experience (working long term with just 3-4 families) and came highly recommended by her previous employers. She has been with us full time since Oct 2019 looking after our 1 year old daughter from 8am-6pm and stays with us during the week. We are looking for a family who is interested in a warm, caring, patient, loving full-time nanny starting April. In a short span of 6 months, Nisha aunty has become a part of our family and developed a very strong bond with our daughter. Our daughter has flourished in her care - from eating and napping well to enjoying outdoor playtime and library time. She takes ownership, needs very little direction and is a quick learner. She is very good at connecting with other nannies/setting up play dates and I was impressed with how quickly she adapted to our area. Nisha aunty is has good fluency in Hindi/Gujrati and a good working knowledge of English. She is very communicative and sends us pictures/videos throughout the day. When I travel for work, she tells me not to worry about anything at home and I am carefree knowing my daughter is in good hands. She is flexible with hours and stays with us during the week, also helping often after hours if needed. She is a great cook and happily cooks/helps out in the kitchen in her free time. She takes care of me and my husband too treating us as her own family. Under her watch, my daughter always eats freshly prepared meals that she lovingly prepares for her everyday. She has a strong work ethic and performs all standard nanny duties such as laundry, meal clean up, bathing, organizing etc. with utmost sincerity. I havent had a single complain with her work over past 6 months. Above all I would recommend her for her resilience and genuine care giving attitude. She showers our daughter with so much love and even misses her during her off days! She is very attentive to her needs at all times, often understanding her better than we do. We hope to find her a loving home. I have verified her reference from her previous employer (of 5 years).

Dear family, Waveeta has worked for us for 11 years full time and a few part time ( date nights currently). Waveeta worked for a wonderful family for the last 15 months full time with a special need child where that position came to an end in October. She is simple and the most exceptional childcare giver we\\\\\\\\\\\'ve ever had. We are looking to place Waveeta with the perfect family as a full time nanny. Her ability to relate to and engage children is magical. Her ability to capture their attention and mitigate meltdown's and it’s not fair moments with intelligence, kindness, fairness and unwavering patience is beyond impressive. Waveeta can multi-task better than most professional I have worked with. Whether picking up or dropping off my daughter at school, after scool, or play dates, creative art projects and even prepare incredible healthy and delicious meals. She keeps our family and home running incredible smoothly and has made such a positive impact on all our lives. She is truly a gift. Waveeta was born to work with children. My husband and I interviewed over 10 nannies and Waveeta was the only one to get down on the floor and actively play with the kid. She is incredible, respectful, honest, polite and has a great sense of humor. We know the next family to employ her will quickly see how having Waveeta in their lives will have such a positive impact.

Wilma has been with our family for almost 14 years, since our daughter (J.) was 4 months old, at which point I returned back to work (at a major media company) 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 my husband and I, as we are working parents with rather hectic schedules, as we felt her calm, patient demeanor would be a benefit for our daughter amidst our (sometimes) chaotic, yet loving, lifestyle. To be honest, I saw a lot of \"type A\" personality nannys, which was fine, but felt almost like adding to the frenzy. For me, the most important thing as a new mother -- beyond everything else -- was that J. was safe and loved, which is exactly what we got with Wilma. She has been with J. through every stage: infant, toddlerhood, preschool, childhood and now teenager years - and J. loves her very much. J. is now 14 and in 9th grade, with a growing independence, so we feel like it is the right time to make a gentle transition. We live on the UWS, but she is also very open to other places in Manhattan and Brooklyn as she and her family live there. J. went to school on the UWS, and Wilma quickly got to know the school, the other nannies and at home mothers (many of whom consistently raved to me how wonderful Wilma is), navigated the playdate process with grace and ease, and got to know the neighborhood inside out for all of the playgrounds, child activities, etc. In the house, Wilma handled all of the bottles to toddler food to pre-teen/teen cooking for Josie and all of her laundry as well. We are also a pretty neat/organized household, so she managed the light cleaning as well, as my husband and I wanted to ensure we kept the house tidy (especially during the \"toys everywhere\" phase, many years ago! ) . She was always open to staying late when needed (like 8pm) and would stay later (10pm) sometimes if I had an event or a work dinner. In this case, I always got her a taxi home. 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.

Afroze has been with us since my son was five months old, and she now cares for him (2 and a half) as well as my six month old. She is kind, loving, professional, and has great judgment. i consider myself a fairly neurotic mother, and i trust her implicitly with my kids - i actually think she is more careful than I am! The only reason she needs a new family is that we are moving out of the city and the commute would be too long for her. A few things I would want any prospective family to know about her: -For the parents: Afroze is always - and i mean always - on time. She is an utmost professional and takes her job very seriously. She never makes critical or judgmental comments, and when she has suggestions she makes them very lightly (for example, when she thought my son needed water shoes for the Manhattan sprinkler parks in the playground - something i had no idea about as a new mom!). She takes direction very well and never pushed back on any of my many routines. - Afroze loves being a nanny and loves children. She talks to my kids all day long, sings to them, and plays with them. She has "breakfast dates" with my toddler every week and they literally sit together and chat and read books. -Afroze has great judgment and a lot of common sense. I never worry about my kids' safety when they are with her, and i know she watches them like a hawk. as a working mom, it was amazing to have someone i could trust when my kids have been sick and i had to go to work. -Afroze is NOT that nanny you see on the street talking on her phone all day instead of talking to the kids. She is so engaged with them and, again, takes her responsibilities very seriously. We have felt so lucky to have her in our lives, and we think another family will too!

Leah has been such a gift to us, caring for our now 2 year old since he was 9 months old. She works for us part time and is looking for a full day Thursday to fill her schedule. My son absolutely adores her, and it is obvious why. She is so genuine and truly cares about his needs and development. She never hesitates to get on the ground and play with him, run around the playground, or lead a great adventure in imaginative play. Please reach out to me with questions!

We're looking for a new family for our wonderful nanny - as I've decided to take extended leave after the birth of our second child. Lhakpa is highly experienced with all ages, has 14 years of experience in Manhattan, excellent references and we are really sad to loose her after over two years with our family. She has cultivated a lovely circle of friends for our daughter and structures her week with the right balance of play dates, museums, zoo visits and playground time. Lhakpa's preference is to stay working on the UWS or New Jersey (she's living in Dumont). She's available either FT or potentially as a Nanny share with us.

I’m writing on behalf of Laine and we had the privileged of having this respectful, wonderful, loyal, lovely and professional nanny for eight years from 2012-2020. When she started working with us when our son was three months and three years later, we welcomed our second child and she started taking care of my daughter since a newborn. Unfortunately, we moved to another state and Laine stayed because she has her own family in Manhattan, New York. Laine first language is Spanish; she taught my kids how to speak and read Spanish and that was a wonderful added bonus. Laine was wonderful at looking out for our children and was very protective of them around the city. We never had any concerns or worries when they went for outdoors activities under her care. She was extremely open to taking following Instructions on how we wants things done. She has been a wonderful teacher for our children in instilling good values and discipline. Laine showed tremendous dedication to our family; she communicated with us continually each day and provided numerous photos and update about the kids routine. As two working parents, Laine really provide a sense of sanity and relief in our busy days. Laine successfully partnered with us on all the important milestones in our children lives, helping with the meal preparation for the kids, napping training, potty-training, setting up playdates, all outdoors activities, playgrounds, parks, libraries, picking up/dropping off, giving us the satisfaction that our kids are safe. She supported my wife with lactation freezing and unfreezing breast milk, tracking baby schedule, feeding the baby and accompanying my wife for the baby appointments, washing and sanitizing bottles, and stroller walks and bathing. Laine maintains the kitchen and children’s areas clean and neat. She always noticed right away if they stared shows symptoms of illness and raises any concerns with us; she treats our kids as they were her own with a lot of Love and patience. Our kids miss her dearly as she was part of our family we want to help her to find another loving family to partner with where she can continue to enhance the world one family at the time. I provide my highest recommendation for her without any reservations. If you have questions about this recommendation, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Our family will be moving out of New York in mid-April and we are seeking a new family for our wonderful, reliable, trustworthy and loving nanny. Roma has worked for our family for the past 3 years, since our youngest son was 3 months old. She looked after our three children (7), (5) and (3) with so much care. Roma makes it a point to seek out activities and outings that are both fun and educational, such as trips to the library and playground for our son while our older ones are at school. She not only drives to drop our children to school, but also takes them to all of their afternoon programs such as dance and gymnastics. Roma is extremely patient and goes above and beyond with any request that we may have and she always communicates with my husband and I on all aspects of the care of our kids.

She diligently follows our requests and instructions while bringing her own insight and expertise to the table. Most importantly, Roma’s love for our children is clear in everything she does for our family. I have never for a moment doubted my children’s safety or well-being when they are with Roma, and I know that they are receiving the utmost attention and care when we cannot be with them. In her tenure as our nanny, Roma has become part of our family and we will miss her so much. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I'm writing to recommend Joanne Greene, who we had the privilege of employing as both a baby nurse and full-time nanny for our 2 boys for the past 10 years. Our sons are older now due to my job change, I no longer needed a full-time nanny (Joanne is seeking a full-time position and is available to start immediately). Joanne has been more than a nanny to us, she became part of our family. One of our sons has some special needs (ADD, Spectrum, fine motor issues) and she helped us tremendously to help support him in every way possible. Joanne is loving, kind, responsible, attentive and compassionate. She always helped with activities, playdates, homework and overall household organization. She also helped with gentle discipline and always collaborated with us on the best way to handle situations. Additionally, she was our baby nurse for both boys and helped us through every phase of the baby care process. This ranged from feeding and sleep training to circumcision care to helping me with nursing. As the boys grew, she helped with potty training and beyond. Please feel free to email or text me if you'd like to ask me any questions! Joanne is simply amazing and I’d be happy to tell you more about her.

She has been working for us for over 5 years. The first 2 years we lived on the Upper West Side. Thereafter we purchased a home in Summit, NJ. The entire time our Nanny has resided in Brooklyn. Thus she has commuted 40 miles (each way) from Brooklyn to NJ each workday (the past 3 years)! She is reliable and has been terrific with our daughter. When we need her to come in early or stay late she is flexible. This upcoming June we will be moving to London and know there is a family out there that will benefit from her services.

Hello everyone, We are writing on behalf of our nanny Jennifer, who is looking for a full-time position. Jennifer took care of our son for over three years and has been a huge asset to our family. We highly recommend her for several reasons. Jennifer is professional: Jennifer always arrived on time, consistently prepared healthy (and delicious) meals, kept the house tidy, and is extremely knowledgeable about children's health and first-aid issues. We always felt comfortable leaving our son with her in the morning. Jennifer is proactive and resourceful: Jennifer is very knowledgeable about the neighborhood, she often set up playdates, and took it upon herself to set up arts and crafts activities at home on those rainy days. Moreover, she was an avid reader with our son, which was really important to us. Finally, Jennifer is a deeply caring person: Jennifer was attentive and sweet to our son, but also stood her ground when needed. She has meant a lot to us and our son adores her. Jennifer worked for us for over three years, but unfortunately our family needs recently changed. We highly recommend her. Please feel free to reach out to Jennifer directly at: 347-777-7450.

Marina is flexible should you need her to come early or stay late, and is always willing to help in any way she can. She makes the best and most nutritious homemade food for our daughter, and has even cooked for us from time to time, which is extremely appreciated when both parents are working. Thanks to her, our daughter has learned to love eating everything - especially veggies. Marina also arranges play dates with her fellow nanny friends and their kids and makes a point (weather permitting) to take our daughter out every day. I can\\'t say enough good things about her and everyone is complimentary of her - our neighbors, our relatives and our friends. She has done an outstanding job.
