I cannot speak more highly of our nanny Suela. She is truly a gem. She has taken care of our daughter Caroline since she was 2 month old until now (15 months old). Our family is moving to the West coast, otherwise we would have never parted with her. She takes care of our daughter as her own daughter and makes sure that she is safe, clean and makes delicious meals for her. Additionally, she spends time teaching her words and also has taken the initiative to set up playdates for her in our building and the Upper East side as well as bringing her to music classes. She has never missed a day of work that was unplanned or without notice and has always been flexible with our work schedule. As my daughter has gotten older, she also undertakes light housework and has also cooked delicious meals for my husband and I. One of the best qualities about Suela is also her great personality and very positive attitude. She is a very nice person and I am very fortunate that she could take such good care of Caroline while I had to be at work. I hope that she is able to find a good, nice family as she deserves.

Sydoney is a very respectful person who showed genuine love to our children. She is a trained baby nurse specialist and has worked as a baby nurse for the past five years. She works with us for six months as a baby nurse to our newborn son. She was very helpful to my wife in her postpartum stage and older daughter. She ensured the house organized; the play area kept clean, safe and child friendly. Even thou we had her to help with our newborn, Sydoney would also help out with our daughter by taking her on walks to the local park so she can get fresh air and have social interaction with her peers, play games and read books. She's a positive person and very reliable who get along well with children. She is very patience with both our kids. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a babysitter, baby nurse or a nanny. Sadly we have to let her because we only needed a baby nurse since my wife and I have flexibly time with work and our daughter will be going to day-care.

Gerri has been with our family for the past 3 years and we adore her. As our 4 children have grown into full time school, we are trying to search for a new long-term family for Gerri. She is patient, kind, calm, experienced and could handle our 4 children in all situations. Gerri kept our kitchen, playroom and the children's laundry tidy and organized. She is wonderful with playing with the kids, reading to them, inventing games and fostering creative play. Her presence in our family has been invaluable!

We love our nanny Yangzom and are saddened to part ways, but we no longer need help in the home as I have now stopped working and my very helpful parents recently moved a block away from us. Yangzom has been with us for over four years, through thick and thin, and always with a great attitude and willingness to go above and beyond. I believe her to have a strong moral fiber and trust her completely. She is extremely reliable – always on time and willing to stay late to finish cleaning up and make sure I’m set up for the evening. She is fantastic with newborn and young children. She has a watchful eye and doesn’t use her phone unless it is absolutely urgent. She cooks healthy food for my children and somehow manages to get them to eat it. She is patient, resourceful, honest, and energetic and has been such source of strength and love in our home. I know we will be in touch with her in years to come. I care deeply for her and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Nanda worked with our 2 children, boy and girl (now ages 9 and 7) nearly 3 years full time and then part time as well. Given schedule changes with school full time, we were sad to have to change caregivers as Nanda wishes a full time work schedule. Nanda is punctual, caring, energetic, experienced, and takes her job seriously in supporting a family and their goals. We became acquainted with her as she worked with our neighbor's children since they were little, she the worked with us until our children's schedules changed. Nanda respects a families goals, is always on time, and very dependable. She gave our children care, was always able to handle their needs, helped support our home and various relationships with playdates and scheduling challenges that are presented with two children. We are available to provide reference on our wonderful experience with her and provide additional reference to our neighbors as well.

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. We absolutely love her and any family would be lucky to have her care for their children. You can reach Mynette at 1347-650-4317 or [email protected]

Our wonderful nanny, Julia, is honestly one of the best things that has happened to our family. She has lovingly cared for our son for 3 years and now that he is starting preschool, she is available. She has experience in caring for newborns, toddlers and preschoolers in addition to caring for her own children. Julia is one of the kindest, patient and smartest people I know. She has taught our son Spanish at our request and now he is fluent. She reads to him daily, practices writing with him, plays with him and is always focused on him. In addition to always finding fun activities for my son to do during the day (such as story time at the library and community events), she does his laundry and cooks his meals. She even works with us to accommodate our sons dairy and gluten free diet and is highly proactive in making sure he doesn't eat those things even when he eats outside of our home. She also does light housekeeping, especially in the areas my son plays. My son actually loves helping with chores thanks to her. She potty trained him quickly and painlessly and has taught him many basic life skills such as putting on his own clothes. We feel blessed to have had a nanny like Julia. My son adores her, his face lights up when she arrives, he asks about her on weekends and sometimes even cries when she leaves. She has given us peace of mind as she has always acted responsibly with him and protects him. She is also very good at providing guidance in a non-intrusive way that I valued as a first time parent. I highly recommend her and am going to be very sad to see her go. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Thanks for reading!

Wendy has become a part of our family over the last year. She started caring for our daughter when she was two weeks old, and has been a constant source of warmth and support. She was an amazing night nurse and helped our baby sleep through the night by the time she was 3 months old. My daughter absolutely loves her, and I am convinced that she is a healthy, happy toddler because of the amazing care she received. Wendy is incredibly skillful, and has a special magic with babies. Her energy never seems to run out - she is passionate, warm, professional, and above all caring. She has experience working with twins, triplets, and special needs babies, which comes through in the quality of care that she provides. She has always been willing to stay late or work extra days when we have needed her and has also helped with our baby's meals, laundry, and clean up. Beyond all this, Wendy has gone out of her way to expose our daughter to lots of experiences - taking her to the park, the library, a nearby baby gym, and even making new friends with other babies in the neighborhood! I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are pregnant or have a young baby, then please consider Wendy as a caregiver. We are so sad to lose her but are now transitioning our daughter to day care. Wendy is looking to begin work as a baby nurse in mid-January, is ideally looking for hours from 9AM-5PM and is also willing to work nights. Thank you, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Fior has been our nanny on the Upper West Side for two months. It seems like she's been a part of our family for much longer! She has always been early and never late, which has been critical for two working parents. However, we are moving to New Jersey for more space and sadly the commute will be too long for her. Fior has a calm, gentle, patient, quiet, responsible and kind disposition that was exactly what we were looking for with our newborn. In a short period of time, she has built a great relationship with our 5 month old daughter. She smiles, is very playful, sings, reads, and is very attentive throughout the day - always focused on our baby's needs. When Fior comes Monday morning, our daughter gets a big smile! Fior has been very thoughtful to find play dates and activities in the area (library, bookstore) where our daughter gets to meet and play with other babies. Fior proactively found all of this on her own and we are very grateful! She sends us almost daily photos and videos and checks in during the day, which has given us great comfort and joy. Fior also keeps our apartment tidy, cleans the kitchen, and washes bottles and dishes. Fior speaks and understands English well and she is also a native Spanish speaker which has been a bonus as we've been happy for our daughter to learn. We're sad Fior can't join us in NJ but hopeful she finds a great family that deserves her to share her wonderful and caring heart! We're happy to provide references or speak on the phone if you have questions!

Shelly is loving, kind, and passionate about helping to raise children who are thoughtful, kind and loving in return. From the time my boys were babies she would engage with them in 'conversation' and speak to them about the world around them and what they were doing throughout the day helping them to adapt to whatever environment they encountered. I truly feel this helped to make my children easy-going and well-adjusted to their surroundings and new experiences. Shelly is dependable, often staying late or coming in early as needed, and shuttling the kids around to their various schools, activities, and doctor's appointments. Shelly still maintains a relationship with families she has cared for in the past including our own. To me, this is the sign of someone devoted to caregiving. She would always ensure that my boys were clean and well-maintained. No runny noses or dirty faces. She would even iron their clothes so they were well-dressed. Shelly taught them how to play with other children, share toys, and clean up after themselves. She would be an incredible caregiver in any home but she is especially wonderful with babies and toddlers.

She is good at getting out of the house and taking babies and toddlers to neighborhood activities. She also has the flexibility to stay late, when needed. Both my boys are in school full time now so we really can’t give her the hours she needs. She’s also taught both my boys to speak Spanish. She always did their laundry, prepared meals for them, and kept the apartment clean. She's been a nanny in Brooklyn and Manhattan for over 20 years. She's very warm and loving and any family would be lucky to have her.

I will start by saying that I am extremely picky when it comes to childcare. Sannette won over my trust since she came through my door with her resume in hand and her warm demeanor. She is extremely professional and has a beautiful energy. She is able to truly partner with you and accommodate to your parenting style. She is also a nurse with great preparation who is able to recommend good practices for the care of your child, in particular a younger baby such as with mine. She is energetic and nurturing, and keeps my now 6 months baby happy and engaged the entire time she is with her. She has also been great helping me bottle feed when my baby used to refuse the bottle. At this time I have to give her up because we are moving to the West Coast. She is open to part-time work in the Williamsburg area or full-time in Manhattan as well. I will be more than happy to offer further details as needed. With Sannette your baby will be in great hands!

It is with a heavy heart that I post for our incredible, amazing nanny who has been such an integral part of our family for over four years, as unfortunately our kids are both in school and we need to scale back to part time, and she is also quite keen on seeking opportunities closer to CT. She takes care of literally everything for my 7 and 3 yr old, and has has extensive experience with kids of all ages. She is the sole reason my 3 yr old is the only child in his class who can spell and write his name and count as far as he does. She organizes all his play dates and keeps track of his schedule without my ever having to remind her. I travel internationally a LOT and she keeps things running without ever, not even once, texting me or asking questions about what needs to happen with the kids. I can’t sing her praises enough. She is potentially moving to CT so she would be open to FULL TIME positions in CT/Westchester (40-50 hours is ideal, but she can be flexible). She drives and has experience driving for families as a nanny. We can be flexible with start date - any time from late November to Jan 1.

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.

Tara has been with us for over two years, since we moved to Riverdale. It's sad and impossible to imagine life (or our daughter) without her. Tara is above all careful, thoughtful and loving with our daughter, as she has been since she was 2. She has played a key role in our daughter's transitions to learning language, manners, hygiene, and really becoming a well-behaved and joyful little girl. I should add that it's common to discover, when I'm out with our daughter, that people know her name...Tara always integrates Lily into the safe environments she's in (like the playground). But more than that, these same strangers will go out of their way to tell me that we are very lucky to have Tara taking care of of daughter, because she visibly takes the same exquisite care when we're not around. Tara has traveled abroad with us in some very difficult circumstances and was invaluable there, as everywhere. She pays careful attention to our daughter's language, affect, and food, and has helped guide all of those along the values we care about. Beyond all that, Tara has a detective's instincts in noting anything irregular about people or situations, the requisite patience that's necessary with a toddler, and good communication with us as to what's going on. She has always met our daughter with love, kindness, and consideration, is always on time, and always fully present when she's here. I would recommend Tara, without any reservation, for any family that cares for their children as we care for ours.

Lorraine Garnett is an amazing person and tremendous nanny who has cared for and loved our two children for the past six years. She came to us when our older son was just six months old. When our boys were infants, Lorraine was instrumental in helping to establish feeding and napping routines and genuinely loved getting on the floor with the boys for tummy time, reading books and stacking blocks. Her love for art was central to their early experience. They were finger painting before they could talk and there is an ever changing art exhibit in our kitchen. As our boys grew and their needs evolved, Lorraine adapted her approach to help them thrive by taking them on adventures and educational trips to museums and parks all over the city. Their play date schedules are packed and Lorraine is excellent at keeping us informed of their whereabouts, sending photos throughout the day. Weather permitting, Lorraine and the boys spend most of the day out of the house. As the boys are now school-aged, Lorraine picks them up from school, makes their dinner, bathes them, does their laundry, and when we get home, they are happy and ready for bed. The boys adore, respect, and have each formed a very special relationship with Lorraine. She is a consummate professional and we trust her completely to keep the boys safe, grounded, and happy. The peace of mind we have while our children are in her care is priceless. We are so lucky to have to had Lorraine in our lives the past six years and cannot recommend her strongly enough.

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 meltdowns 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've 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.

I am writing for Sandra who is the most wonderful nanny I could have ever wanted for my children. Unfortunately she cannot work with us any longer we are moving out to the Suburbs. She took end to end care of our 3 year old toddler. She is very resourceful in figuring out age appropriate indoor and outdoor activities even in a new neighborhood. There has never been a day that she has not had a complete plan laid out for our son like taking him to the museums, zoos, parks, indoor play areas or having fun play dates. She ensures his routine is completely adhered at all times and meals, naps etc are always done as per schedule. When my son is in Sandra`s care I am completely assured of his safety and well being. What I love most about Sandra is the ease and maturity with which she handles our son, he is full of energy and she not only keeps up with his pace but also knows when to give cuddly affection and when to be firm with him when he is being hard to control. She never raises her voice but has a magical way of making a rambunctious toddler be well disciplined. She has miraculously managed him with complete ease and full control in situations like first dentist appointment, flu shots or hair cuts : all of the things he is horrified with. I often tell her that she does a much better job managing him than me. She also proactively always asks us what else she could help with while he is napping or quietly playing by himself & never likes to just sit idle. Whenever she is out with the kids she always checks in if she needs to run any errands for me or pick up grocery etc. She goes above and beyond to help me out as we just had a newborn too. She helps us out with her bath time and allowing me some downtime by watching both the kids. She keeps the kids`closets & rooms always very neat and well organized. She does their laundry on a regular basis to ensure their soiled clothes never pile up. Sandra very quickly became a part of our family and we are super sad that she cannot join us. Any family who will hire Sandra will have their kids in very reliable care of her and soon she will become a part of your family.

I am writing to find our wonderful nanny a new home, now that both of my boys are in school full time. Judith has been the glue of our family for the past 5 years. We hired her shortly after our oldest son (now 5) was born, and she has been with us through the birth of our 2nd son, transition back to work x2, potty training x2, starting school, numerous illnesses, doctors appointments, birthday parties, family visits, and so much more. Judith is incredibly reliable. The number of times she has arrived late in the last 5 years can be counted on one hand. The number of times she has called out sick can be counted on 2 fingers. She speaks French and English fluently, and since we are a bilingual household, we have asked her to speak to our boys exclusively in French. As a result, both of our sons are truly bilingual as well. Judith treats her position as much more than a job: she never hesitates to come early or stay late if I need her, to do light errands that might come up, to check on my boys on the weekend or on vacations, etc. She does not see herself as a babysitter, but rather as one of the most important caregivers in my kids’ lives, and feels both the responsibility and the joy that comes along with being such a central figure for them. She loves my boys so genuinely and wholeheartedly that I know that even after she finds a new position, she will be in our lives forever.

Seokomarie (Lalita) is a very caring person. She has worked with me for over 20 years at first as a full time nanny for my 2 children and currently as a part time housekeeper. She is a very calm and compassionate person and has experience working with children with emotional disabilities as with my youngest son. She also has experience working with people with medical necessities. 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. She is very safety conscious and reliable taking the children she cares for to the park, playdates, and scheduled activities. She is very familiar with all the parks and playgrounds along the upper Eastside as well as the museums in Manhattan. After having experience with Lalita for over 20 years, again I feel that she would be a wonderful asset to your child care needs!

I will start by saying I am extremely picky when it comes to childcare. Sannette won over my trust since she came through my door with her resume in hand and her warm demeanor. She is extremely professional and has a beautiful energy. She is able to truly partner with you and accommodate to your parenting style. She is also a nurse with great preparation who is able to recommend good practices for the care of your child, in particular a younger baby such as with mine. She is energetic and nurturing, and keeps my now 6 months baby happy and engaged the entire time she is with her. She has also been great helping me bottle feed when my baby used to refuse the bottle. At this time I have to give her up because we are moving to the West Coast. She is open to part-time work in the Williamsburg area or full-time in Manhattan as well. I will be more than happy to offer further details as needed. With Sannette your baby will be in great hands!

You should hire our amazing nanny!!! Tammy was a beloved part of our family for the past 3 1/2 years. She is calm and flexible, and was a loving and steady presence in our home. This last year she took care of my 9, 7, and 4 year olds as well as my 2 year old nephew (who she has cared for since he was 3 months). She is amazing at getting a baby on a schedule for naps and feeding, and was able to anticipate and help with each developmental stage. Tammy often took care of all 4 children at the same time, and was always in tune with each child's needs and schedule, and created a warm and happy environment for all of them. Tammy is loving and wise. She has a magic touch with children -- she developed close and caring relationships with all 4 kids, and was able to comfort them when they were upset and help them all interact together kindly and lovingly. Tammy was happy to play Legos and games and do art projects and read books for hours at the appropriate developmental level for each kid. She was totally on top of everything -- all 4 kids' schedules; current food likes and dislikes; naptimes and bedtimes. We would have kept her forever but my youngest is now in preschool and we no longer need a nanny. We miss her terribly and she regularly texts and FaceTimes with our kids. Tammy is a treasure!

Our circumstances have changed and our nanny of almost 3 years is available for full time work. Marcela joined our family when our oldest son, now 5 was 2.5. Marcela was with us for the births of our two other sons, now 2 and 7 months. Marcela is patient, gentle and caring. Our middle child had horrible reflux, which made feeding him very difficult, Marcela and myself were the only ones he would take a bottle from. She would sit and sing to him, talk to him and walk him until he was calm and finished his bottle. Marcela was extremely helpful with my oldest when he was having a hard time having a new brother around. She took him to the carousel, Natural History Museum and Prospect Park Zoo and many more places with his friends. Marcela is social and makes friends in the neighborhood, sets up play dates, takes the boys to classes, does drop off and pick ups from school. She is amazing in the kitchen and will prepare anything you ask including baby food. Marcela will love your children as if they are her own. All three of my boys adore her. She has built a special bond with each of them. It’s important to us that Marcela finds a job with a kind loving family.

Fiori has been a reliable, flexible, supportive and beloved nanny with our family for the past 4 years. Fiori started with our family when my daughter was 6 months old care for my daughter (now 4.5) and my son (now 2) full time. She has developed close bonds with both children and has been excellent with them as babies, toddlers and now pre-school aged. Throughout our time in NYC, I consistently heard from other parents and neighbors in our apartment building how caring, thoughtful and devoted Fiori is to our children (people I didn’t even know would come up to me because they had seen her on the playground with the kids). She genuinely looks for ways to help out and will pitch in without being asked. She has been exceedingly responsible and is never ever late. In the 4 years she has been with us, she has taken 2 sick days. She has been very flexible with last-minute requests to come a bit early or stay a bit late. She does an excellent job with kids activities and arranging playdates and is very pro-active about keeping the kids busy without resorting to screens (she has never used TV, cellphones or ipads to entertain the kids). She excels at building relationships with other nannies and parents to coordinate activities that will benefit the kids (she’s the only nanny I know who had playdates with other parents and grandparents of my children’s classmates). We recently moved to NJ and Fiori helped us transition with the kids and re-worked her commute to stay with us and extra few months to get settled. If it wasn't for the move, we would definitely want Fiori to keep working with us. She is an absolute gem and any family would be lucky to have her.

We recently moved to the suburbs and would like to find our beloved nanny, Myrtle, a new family to work with. Losing Myrtle has been heart-breaking for our family – perhaps the hardest part of leaving the city. She has been an exceptional caregiver for our children, and at every turn has made our lives easier. Myrtle began working with us when our oldest daughter (now 5.5 years old) was a baby (2 months old). Since then she has also cared for our second daughter (now 2.5 years old) and our newest son (six months old). Our children cherish their time with Myrtle. They run to her when she arrives in the morning and are upset when she leaves in the evening. Her long tenure with each of the families that she has worked with over the years (5+ years with each) speaks to what a great caregiver she is, and her other families will give her similarly glowing references. Myrtle is always on time. She prepares nutritious meals that our kids will actually eat (no small task). The children’s laundry is always done. And I always come home to a clean, tidy home (more so than when I left!). She is fun, energetic and kind. Most importantly, Myrtle is trustworthy and has incredible judgment. I’ve never once had second thoughts about the way she has supervised the kids and I leave for work each morning knowing they are in safe and competent hands. Myrtle is also incredibly social and is great at organizing playdates with other kids in the neighborhood - I’ve had so many neighbors tell me, unprompted, what a great job she does with our children. Myrtle would prefer to work in Manhattan, but is open to parts of Brooklyn as well. She would also love the opportunity to work with another baby so that she can once again grow with the family, but is open to all families. We and especially our kids will miss Myrtle tremendously and would love to find a great family for her to work with. You will not regret working with Myrtle – 5 years later, we never have.

She is Very responsible and trustworthy; she became very quickly a close member of our family. She was very open minded to adopt the way we wanted to raise our daughter and she was great in adopting new ways of dealing with a 1-2-year-old child. She is very patient and flexible and adapt to the quick changes in our daughter development. She helped me tremendously with the potty training (done in 5 days). She knows the area (upper west side) very well and has a great nannies network, which was very helpful to make play dates almost every day. She helped preparing meals and took care of everything related to my child. I highly recommend her for families in the area. Please contact me if u have more questions, I can share more details.

Pat is a very reliable and loving Nanny. She took care of our two boys for 10 years but now they're grown and we'd love for Pat to find a new role with another family. Pat traveled from Brooklyn to our Upper West side apartment and was punctual (usually early.) Pat was also extremely flexible, which was a huge benefit to us -- we often needed her to stay late and she always obliged. My boys adore her and Pat feels the same about them -- we always felt confident that our boys were safe and well taken care of with her. Pat doesn't drive but takes the train or bus anywhere, and will dutifully and reliably follow any detailed directions given. Pat was great with our boys as babies; she has a real way with little kids, getting them to sleep and taking care of their general well-being. As they grew she played with them and nurtured them, and would take them all over Manhattan to their after-school activities. Pat would keep our place tidy with light cleaning and cooked for the kids everyday. Pat would also do shopping for us every now and then. If you want a loving, reliable nanny, Pat comes highly recommended.

Our incredible nanny Stacey has been with our family since our first was born, 5 years ago; we have a boy, 5, and two girls almost 4 and 2 (plus a french bulldog). She started with us in the city and for the last 4 years she has been commuting 3+ hours each day from Brooklyn to Westchester after we moved. **Stacey is looking for a full-time position with ~50 hours a week.** Stacey has been an excellent nanny at all stages – from our infants to juggling 2 and then 3 kids under 4 years old. She has tackled child development issues with us for the babies including sleep training, low weight issues and nap/sleep schedules as well as for our toddlers, including potty-training, pre-school separation, sharing, testing boundaries, etc. She is very consistent in her approach with the kids. They know each day they will be greeted by a smiling face, a fun, caring and loving nanny and that certain activities (like drawing on the walls) are not allowed. She is focused on healthy eating habits for the kids, including balanced meals that are seated at the table. She gets our toddlers to eat their vegetables and allows our slow eater the time she needs to finish. She also works around some food intolerance. Stacey is young (40) and active. She loves to be outdoors with our kids and has the energy to run around with them. She can also manage to keep them entertained and happy indoors on a bad winter day. She reads, colors, builds and explores. She's not a texter or talker. When she's with our kids her phone is in the room but not in her hand. Stacey is very independent, trustworthy and low maintenance. She only calls when there is something urgent to handle. She is easy going and takes requests for modifications well. She also will have conversations with us when something is bothering her rather than letting an issue fester. She is mature and intuitive. Stacey is reliable. She is always on time and is willing to spend a few moments talking through the day with us each evening rather than running out the door when we arrive home from work. In 5 years, she was sick only one day. She requests her days off well in advance. She has a daughter who just started college. Stacey came to us from Anne-Marie who worked in finance with two young girls, living on the Upper West Side. Stacey worked with them for 2 years before they moved to Westchester. Before that, she was with Jessica, a doctor on the Upper East Side. She had been with Jessica for 6.5 years; first for her son then the arrival of her twin girls who started kindergarten when Stacey left. Our kids are now all in school and we transitioned to an au pair but I wish we could have kept Stacey forever.

She does many things well: She keeps a very tidy house; she prepares meals and snacks; she does laundry; she anticipates problems; she is always on time, and she is healthy! (In all these years she has called in sick maybe twice). Juliah has given us several years of terrific, worry-free service, and we know she will provide another family the same quality and assurance.

Looking to help place Flo, our lovely and caring nanny of 7 years, with a terrific new family. Flo joined us when our daughter was turning 1 and at 8 years old we no longer really need her help full time. Flo has been a tremendous nanny from infancy through the toddler years, through pre-school and now into the early grades. She was always calm and even-keeled through the mishaps with infants (feeding, diaper messes, tantrums, etc.). She's always been incredibly responsible and attentive with our daughter, watching her for safety in the playgrounds, ensuring kids are playing well together, cross streets carefully, and so on. She's been the sole organizer of playdates with both nannies and moms and she's so in tune with my daughter's friends and good and bad influences (steering away from situations that were not good influences). She's helped us with most meals of the day (healthy), light cleaning for our daughter, our child's laundry and just help keep things organized. She's been absolutely reliable for 7 years with almost no sick days in that time. I should also mention that over the years I've had multiple parents comments on how lovely Flo is and how lucky we are to have found someone like her. My daughter is deeply attached and I would love to place her with another great family to benefit from her calm and quiet care.

Elizabeth has been with our family for six months, since our son was 4 months old. She has clearly formed a strong bond with him and cares about his growth, development, and happiness. When she started with us, Elizabeth got him on a feeding schedule and a nap schedule and helped him transition from breastfeeding to bottle feeding. She also arranged regular playdates with other nannies, and researched classes in the area. When it came time to start solids, Elizabeth pureed a range of nontraditional combinations, adding spices and taking care to include a balance of fruits and vegetables. On a weekly basis, she takes our son to the library, to the park, to music classes, and on playdates. She is very proactive about finding fun things for him to do, and even put together a thorough list of developmentally appropriate toys to help guide our purchases.

Natasha took wonderful care of my son and daughter for seven years, starting when my youngest child was one year old. We trusted her completely with the care and safety of my children. She was loving, nurturing, and a reliable and responsible caregiver. She struck a lovely balance of being playful and fun, while maintaining appropriate boundaries and instilling a sense of responsibility and order as my children grew older and needed to work on homework and chores. She was generous with her time and always very thoughtful and considerate. She always left our home in better shape then she had found it. My children really loved her and they still love to see her when they can.

Our amazing, loving, and reliable nanny will be available the beginning of January! We are moving out of the city to the suburbs and she is unable to come with us (even though we begged her to come!). She has been with us for the past two years since my son was three months old and has been fantastic since the beginning. She has taught him everything from the alphabet to proper manners and she cooks all of his meals from scratch. She takes him to classes, arranges playdates, and is always looking for fun things to do with him around the neighborhood with the network of nannies and friends she has built over the years. She truly takes so much pride in our son, like he is her own, and we are dreading the day we all have to say goodbye. We are so grateful for everything she has done for our son and would love to find her a loving family. Please contact me for more information!

THE BEST nanny is available for full-time work, beginning January 2020. Fernanda has been with us nearly a year and a half, but it feels like we’ve known her for a lifetime. She started with us when our son was 9 months old and has been with us through his 2nd birthday. We’re relocating and it is breaking our heart that we cannot take Fernanda with us. She is the most genuine, caring and enthusiastic caregiver we have ever encountered – her energy and love is contagious. We have had multiple neighbors and people in the neighborhood that we don’t even know stop us to comment on how great she is and how dedicated she is to our son. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has met our son’s every needs from playtime and playdates, language skills, feeding and even potty training! He is becoming such a loving, curious and well-mannered boy and it is in great thanks to Fernanda. More tactically, Fernanda has never been late for work without advance notice (and is early nearly every day), rarely takes time off or a sick day. She is flexible with our schedules, even last minute at times. She cooks and cleans for our son (and sometimes for us!) and always makes sure that his laundry is done and that often goes above and beyond by helping with extra cleaning and caring for our dog when she does not have to. She constantly has outings and activities planned for our son – usually multiple a day – I don’t know how she has the stamina! All this while balancing structure including scheduled meals, eating healthy and firm nap/bedtime in his crib everyday. I couldn’t give someone a higher recommendation than Fernanda, and she deserves to find the best family – I hope that’s you!

I am writing in strong recommendation of our amazing night nanny/baby nurse, Beverley Witter, She has been a true blessing in our lives with my first child (now three years old) and my second child (newborn). We had her for the first three months for both babies and she was a tremendous help in so many ways. Beverley has cared for over 100 babies so she's an expert on baby care but she really took care of the whole family which was so important during such a fragile time. A lot of friends questioned why I needed a night nanny since I was breast-feeding and would wake up to nurse at night. As I explained to them, having Beverley allowed me to sleep much longer and better, as I could trust the baby in her care between feedings and go back to sleep without having to listen for wake-ups. She would also change and burp the baby and help him go back to sleep so I could go back to sleep sooner. This all amounted to many extra hours of sleep each night. During this process, Beverley got to know my babies' sleep and feeding needs/habits so that when the time came she stayed during the days to get them both on sleep/nap and feeding schedules. They've both been excellent sleepers as a result. Beverley was of course also extremely helpful in setting up and maintaining everything we needed for the baby and his care. She has encyclopedic knowledge on all things baby. I can’t overstate how reassuring this was to have such an expert in our house, and one who was not at all bossy or pushy, but rather extremely supportive and gentle. With all the contradicting parenting books, I often got overwhelmed with how to do everything. She always knew what parenting techniques fit best for our family and would be best for our baby. As I said, she got our babies on sleep and nursing schedules, always knew what they needed when they got sick or had fussy periods, made sure we always had all the supplies we needed, and kept everything clean, freshly laundered, and organized. She also had the most incredible ability to communicate with our newborns. I’ve never seen anything like it. Beverley could talk to them and they would vocalize back in such a connected way. When it came to helping me with my needs as a new mom, Beverley was just as loving and attentive to me as she was to the baby. She knew all about breast-feeding and latching techniques, ways to increase breast milk supply, and was there with a glass of water or pillow whenever I needed it. When my husband and I had some downtime, she knew just how to give us some private space despite being in a small apartment. One of the things I most appreciated though was when she was there for me when I needed reassurance or emotional support. I soon began to look so forward to when she’d arrive each day. The postpartum period brings with it so many heavy emotions and her warmth and incredible spirit was always just right. I would wholeheartedly recommend Beverley Witter as a baby nanny/night nurse. Anyone considering hiring her would be extremely lucky to have her. She is someone who values family, generosity, playfulness, and professionalism. She was an incredible blessing in our lives and the only difficulty in having her was saying goodbye. Please feel free to reach out to Beverley directly at 347-742-1676 or to me at 773-343-3484

Tracy made having an infant seem a little more manageable. Her 16+ years of experience made her invaluable when it came to figuring out all the things my little guy needed: bottles, sterilizers, bibs, bath tubs, strollers, etc. She helped us understand how to keep our son from getting sick and how to keep him and his things clean. She also sleep-trained our son for daytime naps and got him on a more predictable schedule. She accompanied me and my husband to endless pediatrician appointments. She helped us get through my son’s food intolerance and our concern about his possible tongue tie. She is now helping us start on solids. My son adored Tracy and lit up when he saw her in the morning. She knew how to make him laugh and was sometimes the only person who could figure out what was bothering him. She was great at finding activities for him that help him develop physically and mentally. She talked to him and they enjoyed each other’s company. Please feel free to reach out to me or Tracy directly. Thanks! -Lidiya

Ngawang has worked as a full time nanny for our family since December 2012. My husband and I are both professors at Columbia University. At the time Ngawang joined our family, we had just had our third child. When she started our youngest daughter was 2.5 months old, our son was 4.5 years old, and our eldest daughter was 7 years old. Her primary responsibility was to care for our newborn daughter. However, several days a week, she picked up the older two from school and had all three kids at home. During this time, she completely cared for our newborn, including feeding, diapering and doing her laundry. As the children got older, and were in school for more hours, her responsibilities changed. She willingly took on helping with grocery shopping, running errands, cleaning the house, doing all of the laundry, and cooking. However, she remained the primary care taker for our youngest daughter from newborn up until when she completed first grade. Ngawang has truly been a second mother to our daughter. The love that they share is absolutely genuine and comes from Ngawang’s deep capacity for compassion and love. She has loved my daughter like one of her own children. I never worried for my daughter’s well-being or safety when she was with Ngawang. She has a kind and gentle demeanor but also expects the kids to be respectful to her and to others. Ngawang is responsible. She was never late and always comes, even when the weather was treacherous. Even though we offered for her to schedule a week of her vacation on her own time, she has always only taken vacation when we were off. She is incredibly trustworthy. We have left cash and blank checks lying around our house, without ever worrying about things being taken. She has been proactive in getting to know our daughter’s friends and their care takers. She has arranged many playdates for our daughter on her own without us ever asking. She in many ways has become the neighborhood nanny. Many of our friends has used her when their child was sick at home or for babysitting. I give Ngawang my unqualified, highest recommendation for your nanny position. She is leaving us only because our children have grown and we are no longer in need of full time care. Any family that hires her is incredibly fortunate. I would be happy to discuss over email [email protected] or via phone (cell: 646-530-4202) if you have any questions.

Hillary is an amazing nanny! She came recommended by another parent and from day one swept in and swept us off our feet. I was nervous to leave my 6 month old baby to go back to work, but she jumped right in, made an immediate connection with my daughter, eased my fears and provided expert care for her everyday. She is responsible, loving, and truly cares for the development of the child. Her positive attitude and joyous energy are infectious. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have found her. We had to move and were so sad to say goodbye to her, but I’m so thankful for the time we had with her, and will keep in touch for life. She was like a second mommy to our baby, and our daughter loves her so much. It’s amazing to see their connection and feel confident leaving your child in good hands. She’s a gem!!!
