Myles is the absolute best nanny imaginable. She was with us for a wonderful nine years, but wants a younger family as our youngest child is now 14! She is the full package, and there is nothing she cannot do. She is loving, kind, intelligent and talented. Honestly, I would trust her with any task, she is super responsible -- for years sh took our kids crosstown and then later, downtown for music lessons. I never worried at all. Happy to discuss Myles.

We're moving out of the city, and the hardest part will be leaving Helena, our nanny of two years. I almost cancelled the interview with her because my boys were sick and cranky, but she insisted on coming. When she arrived, she took the yelling one and immediately soothed him with songs and cuddles. She has since been the reason we've gotten through too many sicknesses to count without losing our jobs or our sanity! Helena has been with us from the time our twin boys were 7 months, eager to get into everything but still catching up from developmental delays. Helena played an integral role in that catch-up, reinforcing what they did in physical therapy, following all suggestions from me and coming up with her own ideas for how to support and appropriately challenge them. I know she did it because she loved them - even in the very earliest days - and my boys will forever be better off for having her on their team. Helena is energetic and joyful, always talking and singing to the kids, and thinking about what she can introduce them to and teach them. She's appropriately firm when necessary, and is in charge in such a natural and nurturing way. She explains reasons for doing things and the world to them in such an age-appropriate way. Helena has been nothing but on board with all of our directions and suggestions for handling the kids, often reminding me in the early days when there was hesitancy in my voice that I am the mother and know best and she is there to support me. Helena has been great about bringing up ideas for new things they might be ready for, such as a numbers and letters puzzle, which they are obsessed with and which has taught them so much. Helena has the boys outside for hours and hours a day (because that's our family's preference). I have no doubt she is always paying full attention to them and I trust her completely. If something feels not completely safe to her, she will not do it and she will tell me why (for example, when the boys were a bit younger, it was too much for one person to keep them both safe on most playgrounds, so she stuck to Sheep's Meadow). Everyone - from the doormen at every building on the street to the firemen at the local station - know her and tell me wonderful things about her. Helena, true to Helena, isn't so much looking for a specific situation in terms of number/ages of kids, but is looking for the right family. She has taken care of at least three sets of twins long term (I heard rave reviews from the mothers of the other two sets), as well as singletons and children of different ages. She will be available in mid-September and I want so much to help her find the right fit. Please email me at [email protected] or call me at 206.313.7768 if you'd like to know more.

Our loving, kind, firm, spectacular nanny (Ximena) has been with us for almost 6 years and has truly become part of our family. I am transitioning to staying at home with my kids, and we want to make sure we find her a great next family to work with.   Here are just a few reasons why we love her: * I interviewed a lot of nannies, and she was the only person who spoke about really enjoying the teaching aspect of taking care of kids. She told me in the interview that she loves exposing kids to museums, aquariums, parks, etc. She has absolutely done this (our kids go to more museums than I do) and our kids love it. * Ximena is from Bolivia, and her primary language with Spanish (she also speaks English). She speaks with our kids in Spanish, and they can now speak and understand Spanish and English.  * Ximena is extremely loving and also very strict. It’s been a great combination for us. Our kids feel loved and cared for, but they know the rules and they stick to them. I have to say it’s lovely for me as a parent to be the good cop. * Ximena has two grown kids who are both kind, hardworking and smart (which is a great testament to how she cares for kids). Since they are older, she is also flexible when it comes to staying late. * She has been nannying for 19 years, and has worked with infants, twins, older kids, kids with special needs, etc. She has a ton of experience. * I cannot tell you the number of teachers, parents and neighbors who have told me out of the blue how wonderful she is with my kids. * Ximena works hard to instill independence in our kids. I work from home, and I hear her patiently teaching them how to do things themselves. I’ve found that to be incredibly helpful when they are in school, camp or classes. She’s always ahead of me, prepping them for things that they will encounter in weeks, months or in a year, so it won’t be as hard of a transition for them. * Ximena has a great nanny community here in the neighborhood and has been able to find coverage for vacations or if she's sick (in almost 6 years, I think she's taken 2 sick days). This has been HUGELY helpful since it means my husband and I do not have to take off work. * She gets our kids out and active every day. Parks, playdates, museums, aquariums, play spaces when it's freezing, etc. I have two boys and they need to be on the move.

Rose has done a wonderful job taking care of our now 11 month old twins, and always goes above and beyond. She always shows up to work early and will not leave until both babies are down, working most days from 6:30 am-7:30 PM (and only takes overtime pay because we insist!). She takes all feedback positively, always has a smile on her face, and loves both our babies as if they were her own. When I went back to work FT, I wasn't worried at all as I knew they were in excellent hands. Prior to our family, Rose was with Twin boys from age 3 months until they were 4 years old, and several other set of twins prior to that. Rose still regularly takes her former “babies” for long weekends in her home. Rose is also always the first to offer to babysit on weekends and week nights if we want to go out. Our kids had a lot of issues, with feeding (acid reflux and bottle aversion) and she was beyond patient with them. Both Babies also required physical, occupational, and feeding therapy, and Rose was a pro when it came to executing follow up stretches and suggestions from therapists. I could go on an on…Rose is truly wonderful, and one of the few people I trust to watch our twins. Whoever hires her next is a truly fortunate family. Rose has a ton of references who will also gush about how great she is!

I am writing on behalf of our amazing nanny, Rosemary Francis, who has been with us for almost 8 years, since my daughter was 4 1/2 months old. We are moving to a part-time situation (both of our kids go to school from 8-330, so we can't justify having a full-time person now) and therefore helping her land a new family. Rosie is more than just a nanny, she is our family. She came to us with over 10 years of childcare experience (btw, she is CPR certified) when she joined. As a working mom, I'll never forget the day I left my daughter in Rosie's hand. It was an emotional day but Rosie kept me abreast of all of my daughter's experiences with ample pictures and milestones. She probably has more pics of my kids than I do...As the days turned into months, Rosie flexed with our schedules and accommodated us on late working nights, doctor visits, emergency sick calls, etc. all the while keeping us connected with our kids. She has flexed and has aligned with our parenting and living style - e.g. postive disciplined time out for unacceptablw behavior, no desserts on weekdays, no videos, no meat (we are vegetarian), reinforced good manners, etc. Speaking of food, she is an amazing cook, and will accommodate your nutrition and diet style. To make things easy for us - she once bought us a blackboard and made a kids menu so everyone (including the kids) knew what we were eating. And now as the months have turned into years, Rosie is a friend to my kids. She speaks to them about their friends, about their homework, and about life. A centered, shy, warm, playful, loving (very!), and extremely reliable (I think in the entire 8 years, she's been out sick only 5 times) human being, I highly recommend Rosemary Francis.

Ami has been with us since 2010, when she began caring for our then one-year old son Alexander full-time in Manhattan. When our other son Benjamin was born in 2012 she lovingly took care of him as well, and stayed with us when we moved out of the city to Bronxville in 2014. Ami is fluent in French as well as English, and from 2007-2010 she worked for a French and American couple and conversed in both languages with their two children. Prior to that she worked for a French diplomat and cared for his twin infants until they were 3 years old. When our boys were younger Ami took them often to various parks and libraries, which they enjoyed immensely (and still do though between school and camp they have limited “free” time). She is quite amiable and has always been very proactive about coordinating play dates with children they became friends with at the park and later also at school. Ami was very adept at caring for them when they were infants, and excellent at “trouble shooting” when they were sick. Since they became school age Ami has walked them to and from school, prepared their meals, and taken them to play dates. She does light cleaning and is happy to wash the children’s clothes and help with homework. We cannot emphasize enough that Ami is also extremely reliable and punctual, and in 8 years I believe she was only out sick once. Though she worked a 10 hour day, she was very accommodating about “date nights” and understanding if we had to stay late at work. Ami is very patient and kind, with a great sense of humor and excellent common sense. We always felt secure that when she was with our children they were safe and unconditionally loved. Though we are heart broken to lose Ami, she understandably wants a full-time position as our youngest child is entering kindergarten this September and we will only need help after school. Our children adore her and have known her for nearly their entire lives—they will truly miss her but understand that it is time to share her with another family. Please contact me if you believe your family might be the one!

Our amazing nanny Rose is looking for a new family starting in September. Rose has been with us since our son was just four months old, and we couldn't recommend her highly enough! With our son starting pre-school in the fall, Rose is looking for her next opportunity. Rose is warm, caring, experienced, reliable, and very dedicated. She has many years of childcare experience. She arrives every morning with a big smile looking forward to a day with our son, and he always jumps up to greet her. She texts us photos and videos throughout the day. When he was theething, she texted us on the weekend to see how he was feeling. She never missed a day of work (even during the huge snow storms!) and is consistently on time. Rose takes great care of our son. During the cold months, she found a music class for him and she taught him how to finger paint. In the summer, she spends most of the day with him in the park and often takes him swimming. She also found kids for daily playdates so that our son can have fun with kids his age. She is resourceful and knows everything about our Greenwich Village neighborhood. Overall, Rose is an amazing nanny and the family that hires Rose next will be a very lucky family. We are going to miss her very much!

I often say that my second-best blind date was the afternoon in March 2014 that Susie and I met! Susie has been our nanny for four plus years, and I would never ever let her go if I had it my way. We have made the decision to leave the city however, and the commute to our new home in CT would be too far for Susie. Susie is caring, nurturing, playful, always smiling, reliable, punctual, perfect at scheduling babies/children, and most importantly loving. So loving that she never leaves without making sure to hug and kiss each of my three children. She’s even come running back when she’s heard one of them suggesting he/she didn’t get a big enough hug that evening. Reliable - Susie is the definition of reliable. In over four years, Susie has never called out sick, never missed a day due to a snowstorm or transit strike, she’s never even been a minute late. Susie is literally a super woman. She waltzes in, starts the laundry, prepares lunch, organizes a play date, gets the kids dressed and ready to head out, and does that all before 830am. I’m not sure how she does it all. And, does it all, with a smile every single day. Our loss, is truly your gain, if Susie should become a new addition to your family this August or September. Please feel free to contact me, Heidi Saltzman at 917.741.6410 or Susan Brown directly at 347.262.5016. One note - Susie is looking for a family with a new baby and with the hope to grow in the future!

Carol took care of my son for 4 years, from newborn to age 4, until we moved away from NY. She has taken care of both boys and girls up to the age of 7 years. We could not have found a more caring, honest and hard working nanny. Carol has been a nanny for several families for over 15 years, all of whom would provide excellent references. My son was not only cared for, and loved, but was also taught (ABCs, numbers, etc) in a fun and loving environment. She has a great smile and a wonderful personality, and is very friendly, easy to get along with, and street smart.

Alicia has been a wonderful, loving nanny to our two children (girl- now 6; and boy-now 4) for five years. She started with us when our daughter was about 10 months old and has been with us since. I went back to work when my son was 12 weeks old, and having Alicia there to care for my newborn made the transition incredibly easy. We trust her fully. Having Alicia has allowed both of us to work very demanding, full time jobs with the peace of mind of knowing that they are in the best hands. Alicia’s most remarkable quality is how loving, nurturing and incredibly patient she is towards children. Our kids adore her and leaving them with her has always felt so right because we know they are being treated with so much love. Alicia is also extremely reliable and flexible. She has taken care of our kids during the work week, and when needed during evenings, weekends and overnight stays. She is always on time, with very few absences. She is a very quick learner, and always striving to do things in the way we explain. I have to say, I do like things my way, and Alicia has always pleased me. She has a great attitude towards helping in general. Her duties include anything related to the children: all meals; getting ready for and taking to /picking up from school; bathing; cleaning their bedrooms/bathroom/play area; their laundry; taking to park and play dates; putting to bed; packing for trips; playing with them; etc. And she is willing to help with other household chores as well (laundry, tidying up, cooking, etc.) She is great at maintaining a routine for children and excellent at documenting it, as well as communicating with us throughout the day when needed. She is great at taking photos and videos of any fun, important moments/milestones to make sure we don’t miss them. She makes a great nurse when kids are sick. We trust her more than anyone else in this world to take care of our children. They have never gotten hurt when they are with her and not once in 5 years have we heard the kids say anything but marvelous and loving comments about their nanny. Alicia is extremely honest and transparent and has a great work ethic. She is kind, polite and respectful, a pleasure to have around, and she has instill those qualities in our children. Our kids are very happy, well behaved, well adjusted, sweet kids and we have not doubt we owe that in great part to having Alicia help us raise them. Everyone, teachers, other parents, and other nannies often remind us how lucky we are to have Alicia in our lives. Nothing would make us happier than to have Alicia be part of our family for many more years. But we moved from the city to the suburbs, and with the kids getting older, we now have different needs (someone who can drive and lives closer to us). We recommend Alicia to any family looking for a reliable, patient, loving, and hardworking nanny, without any reservations. Any family would be blessed to have her. Please feel free to call us to talk more.

Edna is wonderful in so many ways! Our entire family loves our \"Auntie\" We worked with Edna for over three years from the time our oldest was a newborn and after our second child was born. She was patient with me as a new mom and really helped me understand how to care for a newborn. She took care of both of us at first which was way above and beyond the job description. As our baby grew she knew the challenges of caring for a toddler and was loving and patient with our son. Edna has a good sense of how and when to discipline a child but is never stern or uncaring when doing so. She is consistent and has a good moral compass. She is also very good at finding things for children to do around the city. Edna is naturally a friendly person, so socializing children comes easily for her. She quickly made friends with other nannies in our neighborhood so my child had play dates from a young age. I never felt my child was bored or sitting at home unless he wanted to play at home. I worked from home the entire time we worked with Edna, so I was often around which can be awkward - but it never was. Working at home gave me a lot of exposure to how Edna works on a daily basis, so I know exactly how great of a caretaker she is. Edna's manners are impeccable, and she worked with my children on their own. I am also impressed how much Edna treats everybody who knows her with respect - from our doorman to our child. I feel lucky my sons had such a good role model with her. She is just as good with adults as she is with children. She even has a lot of experience with twins! She really can do it all. I wish I could have convinced her to move with us -- I miss her every day. I would be happy to answer any questions about Edna - feel free to email me [email protected]

Our girls are both going to school full time in mid-September and we would like to help Marlene find another family. Marlene is warm, kind and affectionate. Every morning when she arrives at our house, our kids go racing to the front door to greet her. Marlene readily plays with the kids on the floor and is very proactive about organizing playdates, park trips and neighborhood outings. As an anxious new mother six years ago, her confidence and unflappable demeanor made me feel comfortable leaving my daughter at home with her when I returned to work. In the 6 years she has worked for us, Marlene has never been late and has been accommodating and flexible when we have asked if she could come early or stay late. Marlene is hard working, reliable and very protective and devoted to our kids. Marlene is quick to offer kind words and hugs to comfort them when they are upset or just in need of extra affection. We found Marlene through a nanny post on Park Slope Parents and she came highly recommended by the previous families she worked for, who she still has close relationships with, and whose kids she still visits. Marlene has been a babysitter for over 20 years and is very comfortable with newborns and older children. Marlene is a wonderful person and we feel very lucky to have found her. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time by phone or email with any questions you might have. Marlene can provide you with additional references as well for the families she worked for previously. Thank you! Annie

Melanie is a thoughtful, patient woman who cares for children in a loving and respectful manner. Melanie gets right down on the floor to play but will make sure that rules are followed in the household. She keeps kids active and engaged at every age. She is soft spoken but not a pushover. My entire family adores her. She is and will always be a part of our family. She was with my son from the age of 4 months to preschool and there when we walked my daughter through the door from the hospital. She has cared for school aged children too, helping them with homework and taking them to activities. Melanie engages children in art and stories, takes them for walks and plays with them in the park. Melanie will be a wonderful asset to any family.

We are moving due to a job opportunity and the new commute does not allow for our nanny of a year to stay working with our family. She started when our son was 7 months old. She joined our family during one of the most nerve wracking times of going back to work after having a baby and was very helpful in getting through the initial tough days. She is great with schedules and helped us keep our son on the schedule that was best for him and adjusted it as he was changing and therefore his schedule needed changing. She is a great communicator. She sends us pictures throughout the day and we get a full update when we get home. She takes our son to classes and the park in our neighborhood, and to see his cousins a few towns over. She has great experience with babies. She is reliable and flexible. Given our move she will be available mid-August. Just a note that the chores listed in the post are specific to what she helped us with, however, can be discussed with her directly. Thanks!

Indira is a compassionate, intelligent, and well educated woman who loves children and is always in a cheerful mood. She came to my family highly recommended, with love, from another family she had been with for seven years, as a nanny to a young son. My daughter, who is starting high school in September has outgrown the need for a nanny, and this is why Indira is leaving our family. We love her very much and wish for her to find a great family with a younger child that she can care for with the attention and love she cared for my teenager who is now beyond the need for a full time nanny.

Our wonderful nanny Kay is available in early September! (Our last day with her is August 24). We are so very sad to lose her but we are moving to CT. Kay has been with us for 2 years – since my son was 4 months old. She’s kind, loving, passionate about the safety of children and she is flexible! Kay is responsible. I am a type A person and had my son on schedules from the beginning – Kay followed my directions to a tee but she also made smart and responsible decisions when the schedules didn’t go as planned (because – hey, he’s a kid!). My son is on an inhaler twice a day and sometimes on a nebulizer – she handles this on schedule and without issue. She’s also given him other medications – again, no issue there either and 100% trust. If Kay’s train was ever late getting to our apartment – she would text or call and give ample warning about the issue. Kay is straightforward about their day – she gives a full report when you walk in – the good, the bad and all in between. We have a nest cam too but after about a month with Kay – we only used it to see our boy during the day when we missed him! She’s also fluent in technology and that means you’ll receive prompt answers to your texts/calls as well as pics and videos throughout the day! Kay is flexible. My husband and I have jobs that sometimes require us to travel or go to after work events. I truly do not remember a time where she said no to staying late during the week or babysitting on weekends – she even stayed over on 2 different weekends when my husband and I went to Miami together. She is so very reliable – and we were so thankful for her willingness to pitch in when we needed it the most. Kay is a sweetheart. My son adores her. When she walks in every morning he makes a straight line for the door to welcome her and give her a big hug. As working parents, this is such a relief – to leave your child with someone who truly cares about them and vice versa. Kay cares about education. She reads to my son, does flash cards and sings with him. She takes him to classes, play dates, and finds the best playgrounds in our area. He’s social and so verbal because of the time she spends working on this with him. Kay has good references! Of course I would love to talk to you about Kay – I’m even happy to meet you in person. But Kay also has an amazing reference from the family she worked with before us. We did a background check when we hired her as well that I am willing to share with you– completely clean, of course.

Our daughter recently got off a waitlist for full-time daycare so we are sadly letting our nanny go. Pinky has been working with our family since September 2016. She has been taking care of our daughter since she was 7 weeks old, and she quickly became an invaluable member of our family. Highlights are below: She is very dependable 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 the neighborhood as possible every day, including playgrounds, libraries, and 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. We hope that Pinky can find a wonderful new family to work with. She has experience with newborns through pre-K and also has experience being a nanny for multiple children in a family. She speaks English, Hindi, and Punjabi.

We are a family of five who have had the same caring, wonderful, loving Nanny for nine years now. We have three kids, and she has been with us since our now 9 year-old was three months old. We would love to match her with a new family for full time work beginning in August or September. If you’re looking for a babysitter who can handle a gaggle of kids, or have a newborn and seek a nanny who can be with you as your family grows, we highly recommend Drew for you. Here are some important facts about her: Drew consistently goes above and beyond our expectations. She coordinates with other nannies and parents locally for playdates, pickups and dropoffs. She cooks for the kids, keeps the apartment tidy, and does all of the laundry. She is very flexible about staying late and coming early as needed. She helps our children with homework and learning basics. Affectionate, responsive and caring of the children. She picks the kids up from school. She takes the kids to after school classes. She loves to cook for the kids. She does the family's laundry and keeps our place spotless Drew’s final day with us could be in early August or early September — there is some flex on the actual date. We are happy to make arrangements to discuss our experience with her over the phone.

It is my great pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Juana Lourdes Landivar (known as “Lourdes” among all who are close to her). I first heard about Lourdes from a neighborhood friend who texted me one afternoon: “The most amazing nanny I know is looking for a job. You must call her immediately.” My friend had known Lourdes for years – spending hours with her at the playground as she watched two young boys in our neighborhood, getting to know her as a person and caregiver. She described Lourdes as “magical.” She said she had never seen someone so loving and attentive with children. I knew I needed to meet her. My husband and I were looking for a nanny to care for our nine-month-old and 3.5-year-old children as my maternity leave came to a close. Lourdes had been working with two neighborhood families: one for 11 years (and part-time to this day, because the family is so attached to her); and then for several years for another family, who was moving to the suburbs earlier than expected. After speaking with Lourdes for a matter of minutes, we knew we desperately wanted to hire her. Lourdes is one of the kindest, most lovely human beings we have ever encountered. She is originally from Bolivia, where she worked as a Registered Nurse before moving to the United States. She is incredibly warm and loving, but also a professional who instilled in us absolute confidence. Lourdes is incredible with our children, managing to meet both of their disparate needs. With our baby, she talks and sings constantly, cuddles him, encourages him to walk, to wave, to give us kisses. She has been instrumental in his physical and cognitive development: not only does she feed his mind through constant engagement, but she prepares delicious meals for him every day and he is thriving in her care. He breaks out into an enormous smile when he sees her every morning – as do we. With our older son, Lourdes gets down in the weeds of his imaginative play: sitting on the floor with him, playing Legos and trains for hours at a time. She has convinced him to regularly eat vegetables for the first time in his life, and is helping us navigate various parenting challenges related to a child his age. She has endless patience and experience that we value tremendously. Lourdes is a native Spanish speaker who speaks fluent English. She has been speaking Spanish to our baby and a mix of both languages to our older son. We have loved the opportunity to expose them to another language and know that this might be an exciting option for some families. With both of our children, Lourdes feels like a member of our team: she offers her wisdom and perspective in a way that feels helpful, and never overbearing. She has boundless energy, and somehow manages to give both children equal amounts of attention, making them feel equally loved. She is a professional in every sense of the word: punctual, reliable, and always going above and beyond our expectations of her. She likes to be busy, and is always doing things to make our lives easier – cooking soup for our whole family every Thursday, doing the kids’ endless laundry and arranging their drawers, caring for the boys when they’re sick and providing hourly updates on their health. She sends the perfect amount of text updates – enough so that we get a rush from seeing photos of our kids and knowing that they are ok, but not so many that we are distracted from our jobs. We love knowing that Lourdes has friends throughout the neighborhood, and she has been wonderful about setting up playdates and bringing our boys to the library, the playground, to our older son’s preschool and our baby’s classes. It is a privilege to go to work every day knowing that our children are in great hands. When we hired Lourdes we hoped that she would stay with our family until our boys no longer needed childcare; she is that perfect. But sadly, we have decided to move out of the city, to a town that requires too long of a commute for Lourdes to continue working for us. Any family that hires Lourdes will be extremely lucky to have found her. Lourdes’ impeccable work history and experience; her professionalism and work ethic; her profound gifts as a childcare provider, and her loving and positive demeanor make her the catch of the century for any parent lucky enough to meet her. Lourdes will be available to start a new job in early August or September. She is seeking full-time Monday-Friday employment, ideally on the Upper West Side. She can be reached at 347 531 5550. Please feel free to contact me if I can provide any additional information.

Wafa has been a nanny in our family for 3 years, and there's nobody, I can think of whom I could recommend more warmly to a family looking for a caring, responsible, affectionate babysitter who always takes to heart the interest of the children she cares for. I can never stress enough how she is generous with her energy, going across town sometimes to take our boy to a birthday party, or to the National Museum of Natural History, or even to M&M store when time comes to do something different during the school vacations. Quite often she would come out with her own ideas of things to do and check with me beforehand that I agreed. She's also great at organizing playdates with other kids in the neighborhood, reading books, helping with homework and playing as well. Wafa speaks a fluent and beautiful French, which helped my family to continue, speak French at home. As a couple of working parents who unfortunately spend too much time outside the home, we could not have wished for a better nanny than Wafa. I'll be able to tell you more about our experience with her to anyone who is interested to hire her.

Judy develops deep relationships with her children and is very easy to work with, from a parent perspective. She worked for us for 10 years, starting with my youngest when she was 6 weeks old. Judy was always on time, proactively sought out play dates with parents and other caregivers she met in the park or in the various classes (and later at school). She is not one to be on a phone all day - but to devote her attention entirely to the well-being of the child. She actively reads, plays and engages with the children. Whenever I needed Judy to do something or had a special request, she always listened. At times, she would suggest things to me, based on her experience. My doormen and other parents consistently complimented me on how wonderful she is and loving with the children. Judy is just the best and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a honest, trustworthy, sensible and - most importantly - loving caregiver for their child(red).

Our amazing nanny, of 6 years is looking for a new family starting in mid august / September (but may consider sooner). We have been amazingly fortunate to have her a part of our family the last 6+ years. She has watched our 6 year old since he was 5 months and our 1 year old since he was born. If I was not leaving my job to stay at home, this change would not be occurring. It will be very hard to part with her expertise, caring and love for our kids and our family too! Our nanny has over 20 years of experience working with babies all the way to teens. If you are looking for a nanny who will jump in and take charge with little direction, she is the right fit. She is engaged, smart, knowledgeable about child development and exceptionally positive. She has wonderful communication skills and judgement. She is organized, loyal, energetic, fun, warm, intelligent and always safe with the kids. She’s extremely timely (always early). She is always out and about with the kids, taking them to the parks, arranging playdates and finding new and different activities. She has taught our kids wonderful manners. She has great ethics and has been a real partner in helping us raise our kids. We cannot recommend her enough. She is the perfect match for parents looking for an independent nanny who doesn’t need a lot of management. We feel many families would be happy and fortunate to have her being with their children. She is ideally looking for a 4 day a week job.

Sandra has been with us for five years, since my son was 3 months old, and he misses her now that she is not with us! She is incredibly responsible and professional, has kept my guy active, safe, and cared for, and has socialized him wonderfully from infanthood to preschool to kindergarten and even through a change in neighborhoods. She is smart, has lots of energy and years of experience. Before us she was with other families from 4-15 year stretches; she is looking for a new family to grow with!

Beloved Nanny Available After eight years, we are reluctantly parting with our beloved nanny. She raised our kids from infancy here on the UWS. She has always been loving, honest, reliable, wise, and engaged. The only reason for the separation is that our children have aged out and no longer need full-time care. She was with her prior family for seven years; they loved her as much as we do. She's looking for a full-time position with a family with an infant, toddler, or very young child she can help raise. Manhattan or Brooklyn preferred. She's available starting late July. Please feel free to call her directly, or call us for a reference.

We'?re transitioning? out of the need for our loving and energetic nanny and want to help her find her next full time, long term gig. Simone is a caretaker with years of experience raising children. She is professional, resourceful, and willingly follows parental input. She has been a steadfast co-parent in helping us raise our two spirited children. She's gotten us through some challenging life transitions. Always a calm presence, her hands have helped shape our children in habit and manner while simultaneously making plenty of time to get down on the floor and play play play. We can't possibly list all ways we have appreciated her but some have included keeping our house tidy, feeding breastmilk on a schedule from a bottle, weaning, changing too many diapers and fixing rashes, toilet training, getting rid of the pacifier, cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner, packing to go lunches, planning and executing countless outings both educational and/or just fun, making friends all over the neighborhood (she created our village), doing all the laundry (including folding and putting away), making the beds, walking the dog, taking care of and cleaning up after the old sick dying dog (forever grateful), walking the kids, making art, cleaning up art, finding classes, teaching how to brush teeth, sorting kids clothing drawers seasonally, teaching how to get dressed (even shirts over the head!), coaxing quietly, positively to put shoes on? the right feet and leave the house?, running to the bus, being on time, doctors visits, dentist visits, library check-outs and returns, drop offs, pick-ups, playground visits, swimming dates, keeping everyone's schedules on track, and even keeping the kids for overnight/weekend stays. The only thing Simone doesn't do is drive, so ?we?'d like to help her find a job in the city, perhaps in the northern portion of Manhattan island.

Hello parents and families! We are in the process of helping our nanny find another family to work with since my daughter will be starting full-time preschool in September. Our nanny, Helen, looked after our daughter for three years and was highly recommended from another family in Cobble Hill when I was searching for a nanny. Helen has been highly motivated and dedicated to ensuring our daughter was taking care of to the highest standards. My husband and I had peace of mind every day that our child was loved and safe under Helen’s watch. Another one of her many strengths, according to my observation, is her talent to motivate children. She has always been genuinely interested in our daughter’s development and presented new ways of learning that captured her attention. Since she has worked in the Cobble Hill/Park Slope are for over 15 years, she is extremely familiar with classes, playgroups and events in our neighborhood, which helped us tremendously! Helen is respectful, considerate and reliable. Since my husband and I both work with overnight travel at times on many occasions, Helen was more than willing to stay late or come to work early. She also helps with meal prepping, tidying up our daughter’s play area and weekly laundry. Helen possesses all qualities that make a nanny successful and she has been an intricate part of our family. Once again, I highly recommend Helen. In case of any queries regarding her qualifications and abilities, please feel free to email me at [email protected] Happy to answer any questions or share my experience.

Pat has been with our family since my daughter was 3 months old. Now that my child is almost 6 and is in school for full days, we sadly no longer need a full time nanny. Pat is absolutely wonderful and my daughter loves her like part of our family. Pat has been amazing from the first few months all the way through kindergarten. When my daughter was little, she helped establish a schedule, helped take away the pacifier and bottle, and was indispensable during potty training. As my daughter got older, she helped with her language, learning numbers, learning the alphabet, and eventually writing. Pat makes friends very easily so my daughter always has opportunities for play dates and she has many of the same friends now that she had when she was a baby. Pat also helps us with all of our child's laundry, cleaning her bedroom, cleaning her bathroom, and helping us with dishes every day. She is, hands down, the most reliable nanny I've ever heard of. During the almost 6 years that she's been with us, I don't think that she has ever been late and has only missed days with very advance notice. She is always willing to stay late and always available to babysit when we need her. She has gone on international vacations with us as well as staying with my daughter for whole week-ends at a time. It's going to be very hard for us to lose her full-time, but she will be a great addition to a new family.

Dato is amazing, and I give her my highest recommendation! Dato is an experienced, responsible professional whom you can completely trust with your children. If you are looking for a caregiver who will share and support your hopes and dreams for your child, if you want someone who will collaborate with you, plan ahead, and anticipate any situation, if you are looking for a nanny with wisdom, judgment, and discernment as well as boundless energy and a wealth of practical skills on every level, you need look no farther than Dato. Dato has proven herself to be as excellent with multiple children as with a single child. She has worked to raise our four children from earliest childhood through their school years and has kept them safe, happy, engaged, and organized over the course of 15 years. She has always gone above and beyond; if she sees something that needs to be done, she does it, or--if suitable--asks us if we'd like her to do it. Beyond these basics, though, Dato has shown excellent initiative in partnering with us to teach our children age-appropriate life skills all along the way, cultivating their respect for themselves and others, and encouraging them to exercise good decision-making and positive character throughout their lives. Dato is an absolute treasure, and now that it's time for her to move to a new position, we want her to find a family that will love and appreciate her as much as we do.

Tshering is looking to care for one child, particularly an infant. Tshering has been with us since our daughter was 3 months old and I returned back to full-time work. I'm so sad to have to write this post as Tshering has become part of our family. Our daughter is starting pre-school this September and will no longer be able to keep Tshering's full-time hours. As a first-time mom with worries and anxiety, Tshering instantly put me at ease with her warmth and confidence. My daughter fell in-love with her "Ya-Ya" instantly. As an infant, she smiled and clapped every morning when Tshering arrived. Now at 3 years old, she sprints to the door ready for hugs and excited to start each day. Over the past 3 years, Tshering has cared for our daughter with so much love, attention and devotion. She has never-ending energy that any one could envy! She's been through all of it with us -- every illness, doctor visit, every tooth that was cut, first steps, sleep training, potty training, tantrums, moving to a new apt -- you name it! We wouldn't have been able to tackle infancy through toddler-dom without her calming, reassuring and positive nature. Tshering always keeps the apartment tidy and will prepare meals for our daughter. She has taken my daughter to countless playgrounds, museums and has accompanied her to dozens of classes over the years. As a working mother, I extremely appreciate that she's able to easily connect with other nannies who are caring for children of the same age and organize playdates. She's also been flexible on many occasions when I've had to work late in the evenings and a handful of weekends. I attribute alot of our daughter's expansive vocabulary, fun-loving and high-energy spirit to Tshering's approach to childcare. It'll be emotional when she leaves our household, but I'm forever grateful for the time we've had together.

Simone has been a part of our family since my son was six months old. After three wonderful years, my son will be starting full-time preschool in the fall, and we can no longer give her the hours she needs. We are heartbroken to lose her and would love to see her find another family that she can grow with. Ideally, we would like to keep Simone until mid-August, but we wouldn't want to stand in her way if she found a great fit with another family that needed her sooner. I originally found Simone on MommyBites, where her former families had only the most glowing things to say about her. As soon as we met her, it was clear that she was the right fit for us -- she was so warm and loving, and my son took to her immediately. Here are just some of her amazing qualities: - She is a baby whisperer. When she joined us, my son would not nap unless he was rocked to sleep. Within a couple of weeks, using gentle methods only, she had him napping blissfully in his crib just from putting him down. - She is proactive and takes initiative. When we're running low on any supplies, she lets us know well in advance. If she notices one size of diapers getting a little tight, she lets us know to move up to the next size. If our son is napping and she notices some dishes in the sink (that we left there because we were running out the door to work), she washes them and puts them away without being asked. - She makes suggestions, but never pushes her ideas on you and will happily follow any instructions you give her. - She is friendly and easy to talk to, which fosters a great relationship with her families, as well as other nannies in the neighborhood. My son always had friends to play with because she was great at making friends with people and setting up playdates. - She is very sweet and playful with my son, but firm when she needs to be. My son is 1000% better behaved around her because he knows he can't get away with anything with her. - She loves to get out there and do things. In addition to playdates, my son spent a lot of time at the playground, at classes, doing neighborhood walks -- anything to get him outside and moving. - With a little bit of notice, she is very flexible about coming in early, staying late, or occasionally working on weekends. I'd be happy to provide a more detailed reference for Simone or discuss any questions. We have loved having her as our nanny, and any little boy or girl would be lucky to have her next!

My girls absolutely adore Rita and wish they could take her to college with them.

Incredible nanny available beginning in mid-September. If we could keep Rosi forever, we would, but unfortunately we are moving to California and she is unable to move with us! Rosi has helped raise our 2 children (4 and 2.5 y.o.) in UES since 2014. We sheepishly take credit for their polite manners, good eating habits, and early potty training, but the truth is that she’s responsible for it all. Among Rosi's many great qualities: *Availability - highly flexible, particularly during evening hours *Cooking - regularly cooks balanced meals for kids and exposes them to new foods *Cleaning - is willing to do full housekeeping when asked, and as time permits *Social development - proactively arranges play dates and seeks friends for kids; is resourceful about finding strong class options as well *Intellectual development - is thoughtful about teaching age-appropriate lessons and skills *Communication - Rosi’s first language is Spanish and as a result, our children also speak and understand Spanish very well due to her concerted effort to teach them the language *Work ethic - from the moment she walks in the door, Rosi is on the move. She plans ahead to ensure kids attend their classes on time and is always organized. *LOVE - above all else, she is immensely loving and affectionate toward our children, and we cannot be more grateful for her devotion We are keen to ensure Rosi continues her career with a fantastic family. We may be flexible for an earlier start date though later start date is definitely an option.

Mala has been with our family since just before our 2nd child was born (Nov 2015). Our oldest is 20 months senior his younger brother and Mala has been a steadying hand in a very crazy household. She is a genuine, responsible, and reliable caretaker. Most days she can been seen waiting outside the house having arrived early. Amongst her many responsibilities; she prepared the boys meals, did laundry, arranged play dates, and helped clean up after the boys. Mala has a robust network of nannies which always made for an active calendar of play dates for both boys. She is always flexible with her schedule whenever we need her to come in early or stay late. Mala also travelled with our family on a weeklong vacation outside the United States. She drives our boys to activities and school and we were very comfortable with her driving the kids. Her patience with our crazy boys was beyond superb. Our kids really love having Mala around and will certainly miss her friendly and loving greeting every morning. With the boys both being in school next year we no longer need full time help but we sincerely hope she finds an amazing family. Please reach out if references are needed.

AMAZING NANNY AVAILABLE! Hi Moms - Our wonderful Nanny is available to join a new family. Our needs have changed and we will no longer require full-time help. Our loss is is truly your gain as Cledy, our Nanny of 4 years (and 12+ years of experience), is looking for a full time position. My kids (now 9 and 5) love Cledy and light up when she walks in the door. Cledy is fantastic in liaising with other Nanny's and parents to make play dates, plan day trips to the museums, zoo or parks and in helping the kids feel secure and confident in any new environment or situation, including extracurricular activities. She keeps their schedules organized and balanced. She loves to do arts and crafts with them and my daughter and son have so much fun showing me what they have done. Cledy is extremely reliable. She is punctual and never calls out. I have received so many compliments from others including friends, neighbors and other moms who see Cledy with my kids regarding how sweet they are together. We trust her implicitly and I have never once worried about the care or safety of our children when we are at work (or on business trips and cannot even communicate face to face). Cledy loves our children and we have been incredibly lucky to have found her (after a few other nannies we were unlucky to have found). I attribute much of my daughter's confidence and sweetness as well as the amazing social skills she has developed, not to mention her understanding of Spanish, to Cledy. We are so sad to lose Cledy and really want to ensure that she finds a family as great as she is!

Daniela has been with us since my son was 4 months old, and we are so sad to be moving out of the city. Ever since she joined us, she has become an immediate part of our family. Our son absolutely adores her. He runs and claps every morning when she arrives. Daniela has been amazing for us. She is committed and flexible. She is always available if we need late night, early morning or weekend help. She understands that we are all trying to juggle many things and makes it incredibly easy for us to be two parents who travel for work. She cooks and does the laundry for our son. She is always making up new healthy recipes for him. She even does the grocery shopping. Daniela will also do light housework to make sure that the areas where our son plays are always clean. Any number of times, I've also come home from work and the dishwasher will be empty making one less thing that I need to do that night. Daniela is a true partner. She comes with us to doctor's appointments and helps us handle tantrums and the like. Daniela is creative and energetic. Our son has explored new libraries, playgrounds, and activities. She has done art projects with him and takes him outside multiple times a day which he loves. She has really helped my son through some of his big first milestones - first words, crawling, and walking. Additionally, they read together, sing, and do creative or make-believe play. I've never felt worried going to work since I know Daniela is there.

Elaine has been our nanny since our third child was born almost 8 years ago. We are really really sad to let her go but now that all our children are moving into full time school we no longer need a full time caregiver. Elaine is an experienced nanny (newborn, toddler, elementary), full of warmth and common sense. All our four children absolutely adore her and she's always been an integral part of our family. Always punctual and flexible with her schedule she possess the judgment to navigate all situations (e.g.: a sick child, a tantrum, when is god time to arrange a playdate, when is a good time to stay home instead, how to do a school pick up with multiple children, arrange a meal etc). She is a great help around the house (if the baby is sleeping she is not passively waiting for him/her to wake up!) She is always reliable, honest and proactive. She enjoys her work and this has always been her point of strength. We can continue on and on, but really if you are a family in need of a loving reliable experienced caregiver Elaine is that person, and the poof is that we never let her go for 8 years! Please contact me for any other detail that I'm missing, I'll be happy to share Elaine's glowing references with you!

Sharmane has been employed by my family since July of 2012. Sharmane began caring for my son when he was three months old. My daughter was born a little over two years later and since then, Sharmane has been caring for both children with ease. My children are now 6 and almost 4 years old and love Sharmane dearly. When the children were infants Sharmane had no problem preparing bottles, feeding solids, getting them down for naps and stimulating their development. At my request she kept a daily log which documented their feedings, naps, and other daily activities. As the children grew, Sharmane adapted well to their needs and schedules. She taught them to dress themselves, clean up after themselves, use the bathroom and even helped them memorize my phone number. Sharmane always arrives on time with a smile on her face. She is flexible and is often willing to work overtime to accommodate my schedule. She is energetic and active and keeps the children busy at the park, zoo, library or a museum. She feeds and bathes the children and gets them safely to school and classes on time. She does light housework, laundry and organizes the children’s room and their toys. My apartment always looks best when Sharmane is walking out the door in the evening. Over the last six years, Sharmane has become part of our family. I recommend Sharmane as a caregiver without hesitation.

Our nanny Cheryl has been with us since our oldest child was born almost nine years ago. She has been loving, reliable, trustworthy, consistent and very able to adapt to quickly changing schedules. It is that last point that I believe truly distinguishes her. The thing about small children is that plans often go off the rails for a hundred reasons - kids get sick, play dates cancel, traffic happens, whatever. And the mark of a great nanny is one that possesses both the grace under pressure and the judgment to be able to navigate it all. Of course Cheryl has been invaluable as a loving caregiver and as domestic help to me. But I really think it’s that next-level thinking and judgment that makes her so exceptional. My children adore her. She plays with them, she reads to them, she helps them become independent with things like brushing teeth or getting dressed. And she can always be counted on to stay an extra hour if we’re running late or do extra laundry if we’re behind. She is supremely cool and calm about it all. The best disposition you could ask for in a nanny. We are so sorry to see her go and want to be sure we find her a terrific new job!

Dolma has been with us for a few years. We will be very sorry to see her go, but we no longer need a full time caregiver because our youngest is starting school full time. She has loads of warmth and common sense. For example, we never worry our kids are off in the park somewhere without water, sunscreen, and a change of clothes, just in case. She is a very active person, and constantly takes our youngest kids out to the park, playdates that she arranges with parental approval, and preapproved venues, such as museums. She is very respectful of parental requests and directions. She is also kind, patient, and honest, all important qualities when dealing with very young children. She is also adept at handling more than one child at once (for example, an infant and preschooler) which skill not all caregivers possess; Dolma, a Mom herself, has this skill in spades. She is also wholly responsible and reliable. In fact, she comes on time to such a degree we could set our clock by her arrival. In sum, she has an excellent work ethic and, while sorry to lose her unflappable and cheerful presence, we are happy to highly recommend her

Tara is an amazing combination of professional and warm, and has done nothing but exceed our (high) expectations for almost six years. We really could not recommend her more highly. Tara has worked for us since our oldest daughter was 3 months old, and for the past 3.5 years has also cared for our second daughter. She is truly excellent at all parts of her job; she's an amazing caregiver, educator, and playmate. Tara was awesome with both girls when they were infants—getting them to sleep, eat, do little baby exercises, and generally nurturing them. She’s now awesome with them as slightly older kids, keeping them incredibly stimulated—running around in the park, doing art projects, learning colors, numbers and letters. She’s also been great with the terrible twos (and threes, fours, fives ;), easily eliciting behavior from the girls that I seldom achieve (cleaning up, finishing dinner, saying please, etc.) She makes caring for both kids look totally easy (it still is not for me!). I have personally learned a ton from Tara, and really value and trust her input when we have parenting dilemmas. Tara's a great person to spend time with—funny, calm and caring—and really easy to communicate with. I’ve been told by countless people how great she is—other parents, friends who see her with the kids, and people in my building. Tara also has a really great work ethic. She is always on time and often stays a little late, unasked. After six years she still hasn’t watched TV at our apartment because she believes that when she’s working she should be getting things done. She spends the time when the kids are in school (or previously when they were napping) cleaning/tidying, and we have an impeccably clean, organized apartment as a result.

After many great years in New York, our family is moving to California in mid-August and we are looking to find a new home for our wonderful nanny, Marina Mayaki. She has looked after our little boy, Jonny (16 months) since he was 4 months old and he absolutely adores her and treats her as another parent. She has been a part of our family since July 2017 and if we were not relocating there is no doubt Marina would be with us for many more years as it is already hard to imagine our lives without her. As first time parents, it has been very reassuring to have someone with Marina’s extensive childcare experience (15 years) and natural affinity for children in our lives. She is looking for a new full-time position, either in Brooklyn or Manhattan, and would like to be with a family long-term. She is amazing with young babies, (she is Baby Nurse Certified and CPR Certified), but also loves toddlers and has a great way with older kids too. She works full time for us and often stays late/comes in early so we can go out to dinner, attend to work, or other commitments. Thanks to her amazing knack for making new friends wherever she goes and her naturally outgoing, friendly and positive personality, Jonny consistently has playdates and opportunities to make new friends. She has worked in New York for many years and knows the neighborhoods very well - taking Jonny to the library, playgrounds and to story time or music events on most days. She attends and recommends classes for Jonny and sends us pictures and updates on how they go so we can enjoy the experience as well. She has created a loving, fun, active environment for him to really relax and enjoy himself. She is also very intuitive and nurturing with our little guy, so is happy to stay in and comfort him if he isn’t well or needs a quiet day. She makes all of Jonny’s meals and somehow gets him to eat all of his food with less fuss and mess than I can ever achieve. She also does all his washing and cleaning so when I get home our place is far cleaner and tidier than when I left, which is an amazing treat! From our point of view she is incredibly reliable, consistent and a great communicator, providing updates to us and the grandparents throughout the day; and is also glad to exchange texts/calls about Jonny after hours or on weekends if we haven’t had time to fully connect during the day. This is an amazing asset given busy schedules and often limited amounts of time we have to engage directly. She is wealth of knowledge on childcare given her years of experience, but she is still very respectful of our requests on anything, ranging from new recipes to napping schedules. Marina has been and will continue to be part of our family, just unfortunately from afar going forward. She is warm, loving, responsible, and is a wonderful companion for all of us. We cannot recommend Marina highly enough and already dread saying goodbye. My husband and I would be very glad to speak extensively about Marina with any families who want to hear more and her prior families are also more than happy to act as references. You can reach Marina directly at 347-494-2643 or [email protected] – or call/email us as well.

I highly recommend Serojinie Hiralal (Leila). She came to us when my daughter was only 8 weeks old and has been with us for a year (Summer 2017-2018). Unfortunately we are moving to the suburbs (out of her commuting distance) and we're hoping to find her a home before we go. She's a huge part of our family and we are very sad to lose her. Just after my daughter was born, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. For the past year she has taken care of my daughter and the whole family. She does a lot to help me keep up the household. She cleans, cooks, does laundry, etc. She is game for pretty much anything that will make your life easier so just give her instructions and she'll do them well. She's been very proactive and consistent with all of our household chores. Leila is very safety focused, which I love (being the paranoid, new mom that I am). She has a hospital background and we haven't had any injuries or issues on her watch. She is incredibly reliable. She took my cancer treatment very seriously and has never missed a day of work. She's also been very flexible with us, coming earlier in the morning or staying later in the evenings on days we needed extra help. My daughter has grown so much this past year and Leila has supported her development every step of the way. She is very patient and encouraging. Most recently she's been helping me reinforce sign language (I show her the sign we're working on that week and then she uses it with my daughter as well). She spends a lot of time reading to my daughter, showing her things, talking to her, etc. They also have a lot of fun together (at the park, library, etc). We worked out a notebook system to exchange notes on what to do that day (what to eat, nap times, etc). She has been great about keeping good notes in the format that I like to get the info. She's also a good verbal communicator, walking me through how the day went, etc. Leila is a very loving and caring person. Our daughter adores her and vice versa. She has a comforting presence that puts kids at ease. We are so sad to move away from her and the whole family will miss her very much.

My recommendation letter: It is with great pleasure that I write this letter for Ms Ang Sherpa who has been the caregiver for my daughters Juliette and Charlotte since February of 2013 when Juliette was 8 months old (and Charlotte was born in July of 2013). As both of our daughters are in school now, we no longer need full time help. In the past years, Ms Sherpa has been responsible for caring for both girls. Her current schedule is to arrive at 7am, prepare breakfast and lunch for school, take both girls to school, and after school, to classes and playdates, home for dinner and bathing. In addition to the schedule, Ms Sherpa plays with the girls, does arts and crafts with them, reads with them and helps with their homework. She has done an excellent job, is reliable and I have always felt that my daughters were cared for and safe. She has always been very kind to them, affectionate and comforting. In addition, while my daughters are in school, Ms Sherpa does their laundry, errands for them, organizes their room/toys, and grocery shopping to prepare their meals. I feel confident in recommending Ms Sherpa to any family. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

My family’s needs have changed and our amazing nanny Joan is available beginning July 1st. She was referred to us through a coworker who highly recommended her based on her exceptional care and attention. Joan has been with our family for 4 years and cared for our little one as her own. Safety was always a priority for her especially on trips to parks, museums and play dates. She was also very clean and tidy and my husband and I felt so comfortable knowing we’d walk in to a clean house. Above everything, as new parents we appreciated her years of experience, her patience , commitment, and her happy persona. We’d be happy if she found another great family!

Elizabeth cared for our 6 year old and 2.5 year old boys for the last 6 months and did a great job. We are looking for a new home for Elizabeth because our childcare needs have changed. Multiple people have made a point to tell me how friendly and warm she is and how much she clearly cared about my boys. She is incredibly patient and kind and able to handle a challenging job in stride. I was especially impressed at how she connected with my high-energy older boy, frequently coming up with learning and physical games to engage and challenge him. She enjoys being outside and spent most of the time at the playground or the library with them, which we loved. Elizabeth took great initiative to form relationships with other nannies and families and frequently arranged and hosted play dates (with our permission). Our boys were very happy with her. She was also happy to handle the boys\' meals and laundry and clean around the house. She would consider part-time but would prefer a full-time job. She also had very strong references before us. Please let me know if you have any questions!

I have known Fanta since 2010 when she began caring for my two boys Lucas and Julien then ages almost 2 years old and 3 months, respectively. With dedication and love, she nurtured, fed, taught, engaged and cared for our two young sons. During my sons’ early ages, her responsibilities included taking them to the park, taking my older son to part-time day care and doing their laundry. Since she began working with us, she has only spoken to my children in French her native language. This was a definite plus as my children entered a French nursery school. When we moved from NYC to Bronxville (Westchester) and as the children grew, her responsibilities included preparing meals, cleaning up the children’s bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. As a full time mom, I relied on Fanta extensively to help with the kids’ homework, coordinate playdates, pick up kids from school and afterschool activities and taking them to the library. She is also very crafty and helped the kids with their art projects. It was wonderful to come home from work to a tidy house, kids bathed and fed and homework complete! Besides being a caring individual whom my children love, Fanta is extremely reliable. In the 8 years she has worked with us, I think she was sick twice; she has always on time both when we lived in NYC and in Bronxville. She always follows through with the tasks given. My children are at the age where we only need someone for school pick until I arrive from work and Fanta is now looking for full time work. We are going to miss her immensely. If you are looking for a nanny who checks all the boxes, please contact me.

Hello Mommies, I want to see if anyone is looking for a top rated childcare/homecare assistant. My family is moving away from New York, and I strongly recommend our current nanny, Vania. Calling her a nanny does not do her justice. She helped my husband and I learn to take care of our newborn, and she became the de facto the third parent to our child. She is kind, gentle and loving, and she takes care of our daughter as if she were her own. Vania is also an incredible housekeeper. When she arrives at our home Monday morning, she has the "Weekend Storm" cleaned within the first half hour. She can cook for children and adults, and has prepared delicious Brazilian meals for us on several occasions. Vania is a great travel companion who knows how to help manage a child and a small pet through the airport, then get everyone unpacked upon arrival and re-packed when it is time to return home. We can confide in her knowing that what happens in our house stays in our house. Vania speaks four languages—Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese—and she is presently taking English classes. Her facility with languages has been a blessing. Not only is our three-year-old daughter completely bilingual, I myself have gone from speaking a little Spanish to becoming fluent in conversational Spanish. We feel so fortunate to have been able to expose our daughter to all of these languages at such a young age. Vania's children are adults who live in Brazil, which allows her to stay late or work on weekends when needed. She is certified in CPR and has 15 years of childcare experience. My family is going to miss her immensely. If you are are looking for a nanny who checks all of these boxes, please PM me.

Our terrific nanny of 4 years, Bibi (goes by Naz), is available in late September/October. My family is making the move to the NJ burbs at the end of August and sadly Naz, will not be able the trek out there with us, despite my asking. I\'m hoping to help her find another family to work with as she has helped ours tremendously! She has been with us since my daughter (now 4) was 3 months old. She took care of her all day (prepared and fed her breakfast, lunch, and dinner, did her laundry, cleaned her room, gave her a bath, took her to all classes and made playdates). When I had twins last year and my daughter started attending school every day she transitioned to primarily taking care of the twins. The kids adore her and my daughter tells me she will miss Naz so much when we move. My sons eat better and sleep better with her than anyone else. They always run to her when she comes in the morning (if they are awake). She is able to take both the boys (now 18 months) to classes and playdates by herself. With three kids, she works really hard and never complains. She has so much patience with them, it amazes me. Not only does she take care of the kids, she keeps the kitchen and living room spotless every day and will even clean my room and do our laundry if she has time (even though that is not part of her job). She is very reliable and flexible with her schedule whenever I ask her to work extra. She would love to start with a new family and grow with them. If you are interested in talking to Naz, please message me or call her directly at 917-691-3855. She has many other long-term glowing references that I spoke with before hiring her four years ago.

It is our pleasure to provide a glowing endorsement and recommendation on behalf of Keisha Jones. Keisha has been providing full-time child care to our nearly 2-year-old son Max over the last 1.5 years. Our relationship with Keisha began in Park Slope, Brooklyn, when Max was 4 months old, and we were incredibly grateful when she transitioned with our family to the Upper West Side this past October. Keisha is a tremendous care giver. Max greets her each morning with hugs and kisses, and excitedly debriefs his days each night which often entail coordinated play dates, trips to new playgrounds, adventures at local museums and bookstores and lots of imaginative play. She is constantly singing/reading/explaining the world around her and we believe that this has had a direct, positive impact on Max’s development. In addition to providing unbelievable child care, Keisha has also been a tremendous resource to us as we navigated the journey of raising Max as first-time parents. She helped keep us sane, and as an unexpected and much appreciated bonus, she also helped keep our apartment tidy and organized. As it relates to our professional relationship, Keisha has always been respectful, punctual, accessible and responsive. She puts Max’s best interests above all else and we have the utmost comfort and confidence in her care over our son. Simply put, Keisha has become a valued member of our family over the last year and a half. Her love for Max is effusive, and our love for Keisha equally abounds. It was a tremendously difficult decision to enroll Max in daycare because Keisha has been so amazing. Any family would be lucky to have her as their nanny.

After five years of loving care and attention, we are sadly saying goodbye to our nanny Julie this Fall (after Labor Day). Julie joined our family before our daughter (Collette, now almost 5 yrs old) was born and started looking after our son who is now almost 7 yrs old. We very quickly came to know Julie as a warm, loving and child oriented caregiver. From the outset, Julie was incredible at handling two small children (newborn and very active 2-year old) - she found ways to make both feel special while balancing their different schedules, naps, and distinct personalities. We were constantly trying to figure out how she kept them both calm and indoors on cold winter afternoons with a smile on her face! Julie excels at keeping a schedule and a daily routine – she thrives on the challenges (and needed flexibility) that brings! Julie is always on time and rarely calls in sick (I mean literally once in five years!). Julie is hard working and takes her job very seriously. She is very careful to keep the house in proper order, cleaning up messy hands, cleaning the floor after the many spills. Julie is very personable and communicates often and easily. We text often and at the same time Julie is conscious of a working moms valuable time, sending cute pics and updates! Julie has had a lasting effect on our children’s early learning, she loves singing, and has passed this love of music, rhythm and dance on to both of our kids. Julie reads to the kids at every opportunity – during meals to distract them, at night to relax and always to keep the love of reading a part of their daily routine. Julie is great at making playdates, keeping friendships going with little friends all over the UWS, attending classes and taking the kids to their favorite activities (sprinklers in the playground, the Natural History Museum, Barnes & Noble, etc.). Her ability to handle and manage the time sensitive logistics associated with two busy and social children is second to none. We are happy to answer any questions that you have and we could not recommend our nanny Julie (from Britain’s capital!) more highly.

Our incredible nanny Alcina has been a member of our family since 2012 and has helped to raise our two boys (ages 3 and 6) since they were babies. Sadly, we are relocating at the end of the summer and so we are hoping to help her find a new, full time childcare opportunity with a great family. In the >6 years that she has worked with us, Alcina has become an indispensable member of our family. Most importantly, we have complete confidence and peace of mind that our two active boys are safe in Alcina’s care as she is highly experienced, has good judgement and is hyper vigilant and CPR certified. Alcina wears many other hats as well. She prepares healthy meals for the children; supervises baths; schedules frequent play dates; ensures the boys get plenty of fresh air and exercise; is a magician with potty training; plans fun outings to the park, library, zoo and museums; and coordinates busy class schedules and school drop off/pick up efficiently. She has also always reinforced the need for our children to be respectful and polite and guides the boys with appropriate discipline while spoiling them with just the right amount of love and hugs -- and the occasional donut! Alcina is also incredibly dependable; she is never late or sick, and is flexible when faced with unpredictable work schedules. Her professionalism and special relationship with our children is also frequently recognized and admired by other parents, caregivers and teachers. Alcina has left an indelible impression on our family and has lovingly cared for our children as though they are her own. Although we will miss her terribly, I know that our loss will be another family’s gain due to her strong work ethic, maturity, experience and loving commitment. We are happy to provide any additional information or answer your questions.

She has immense work ethic and has always been very punctual. She keeps herself very healthy and has NEVER taken a sick day. I’ve always come back to my home to see my apartment tidy, kitchen clean, clothes folded and my son smiling and happy to chat about his day! Through my nannycam, I’ve always seen my son smiling as she sang to him or read him a book. Outside my home, she kept my son safe and happy, taking him to classes, the library, the playground, grocery shopping and to the park and playdates. She cooks delicious Indian and Tibetan food, which my son happily devours. She has helped us through various milestones of infancy and toddlerhood, including sleep training, transition to solids, potty training, dealing with tantrums and has always been respectful of my parenting decisions. She is the most patient and calm person I have ever met! We are switching to full-time preschool and can no longer provide the hours she needs. She is looking to work 45-50 hours a week beginning in August or September. She worked for two families prior to mine (one for ~4 years, and another for 1 year) and they also provided excellent references for her. She herself has raised two well-mannered and successful boys who are now both in college. Kelsang is a US citizen. Kelsang is originally from Tibet and speaks English, Tibetan, Hindi and Nepali. I wholeheartedly recommend Kelsang (Aunty) and would be happy to answer any questions for anyone!

Yola has been our nanny, housekeeper and chef for almost two years. We hired her as a housekeeper, and she excels at all housekeeping tasks. She keeps our household of 3 small children and 3 adults neat and sparkling clean. Yola does laundry, cleans the kitchen and bathrooms, deep-cleans, restocks, deals with all of our deliveries and puts everything in its place. She has excellent judgment and is a true professional. She is a fast learner and is unobtrusive, and she is a green card holder. Soon after Yola began as our housekeeper, it became clear that she could do it all. So, in the afternoons, Yola has transformed into super-nanny. Our rambunctious children (ages 2,4 and 6) LOVE her. Yola is caring, warm, well-organized, reliable, punctual and stays poised under pressure. She is the rare childcare provider that can keep three kids safe and stimulated throughout the day. As for meal-prep, why not think outside the (mac & cheese) box? Yola has a background as a professional chef and makes delicious and nutritious homemade meals. Her homemade chicken noodle soup seems to cure any ailment. As our children's schedules are changing, Yola will be working with us after school, but is now available for housekeeping, cleaning jobs or childcare on weekdays between 8 and 2pm. She is happy to work with a few families cleaning homes one or twice a week. We are glad to have Yola in our lives, and you will be too!

Leah has been a wonderful, caring caregiver to our two girls, ages 9 and 6, over the last year. We are moving out of state, and would love to find a new, friendly family for her. Our daughters' teachers and other parents have all commented about her being the best babysitter they've ever met. She is trustworthy, reliable and responsible, always engaged, loving and playful—making them feel truly cared for and loved. She loves taking our children on adventures, such as the local playground, or on whole day trips to a museum (she's great with public transportation), sometimes suggesting activities she thinks they'll enjoy. She has great patience, and she loves to laugh and have fun with the girls. She has been very flexible, always available when needed, and has never taken a sick day. When my husband and I arrive home in the evening, our girls have completed their homework, have eaten a healthy dinner, prepared by Leah, have been bathed, and are happily engaged with a book or activity. Each day, Leah has the dishes and all messes from the girls are cleaned up after each activity, and she helps fold and organize their laundry, when needed. Leah was referred to us by trusted friends, whose child she has also cared for, and has been nothing less than a life-saver. Any family who hires Leah will be truly lucky.

Yakema is an excellent care giver, by far the best I’ve ever had. She knew exactly how to handle my kids and their needs. When she started my children was 3 months & 3 years. They absolutely loved her. And she loved them! She is young, energetic, reliable and punctual. She took care of my household in terms of always making sure it was neat. She disciplined my kids in the most appropriate way you can think of, and they obeyed her. My husband and I was happy to go to work each day knowing that our kids were in good hands. I’ve never had to worry. I would be happy to explain more about Yakema and her excellent work ethnic. Feel free to contact me or directly contact her.

Marcela has been with our family for almost 2 years and helped care for our kid since our only son was three weeks old to present that he will be turning 2 years in October. Marcela is engaging, sociable, hands on and very patient. She helps out with whatever needs to be done and very respectful. Now we need to let her go due to the fact that my aunt is coming to live with us and will be available to take care of our child. We want to find a family for her where she could be valued as the hard worker she is and that could be proud to have her helpful services.

Rosemary ( Bibi) has been the most amazing nanny that I could have wanted for our son Ved. Our friends were moving out of the city and we were absolutely lucky to have Bibi become available for us as I was getting ready to return to my job. She took care of our son from the time he was just 4 months old till now ( 20 months old). She was the most amazing, gentle, loving and affectionate caretaker anyone can hope for their baby. She kept him extremely neat and tidy at all times and paid special attention to his nutrition. She also made sure to take him out for walks, play dates, music classes and many more things. She was great about keeping him on a schedule and helped out with other household work like preparing his meals and laundry for baby when he was napping. I would always come back to an extremely neat organized house and a super happy baby. She is extremely punctual with time and never even late by a minute which was critical in allowing me to catch my train to work. Bibi comes from a very nice , decent and respectable family and hence all her mannerisms are very polite and humble. I was always so confident of leaving my son with her that I never even bothered to check on the baby cam. We all love Bibi and unfortunately we have to let her go as we are moving to Europe. I should not forget to mention that she is fabulous of taking care of your little one when they are sick, she was always completely in control and knew how to comfort him , give him rest and medicine when he was sick. Please make our loss your gain and get the most amazing nanny for you little one

Our amazing temporary nanny who has been with us since December is going to be available in July. She has been wonderful with our 3 year old daughter, kind, attentive, energetic, trustworthy, prompt, just an all around wonderful person. My daughter had never had a nanny and she shepherded her through a big transition with grace and kindness. She was only temporary due to my work schedule, I wish we had enough work to keep her forever. She has 20 plus years caring for children, can drive and is open to part time or full time. There really aren’t enough words for how great she is!

Derris is a kind, warm and loving nanny. My three children truly adore her. She is extremely loving and will effortlessly manage playdates, childcare and light home care. She is fabulous and we are so lucky to have her. We have been using Derris full time for several years and as my children are older and in full time camp/school, I only need part time care. I am happy to split Derris's hours with another family or allow her to find full time work if the opportunity arises. We hate to lose her but I care deeply about her and want her to find the hours she needs!
