Parent Reference
Veronica (Deci) was with us for over 18 years, from the time my first baby came home from the hospital until he left for college. She started with us in the city and then came to Westchester, where we had 2 additional children. I am a full-time working mom and I never felt bad leaving my children in the loving care of Deci. As they grew, her duties changed, but she changed easily with the job. We have two in college now and my youngest is 15 and we just do not need someone full time anymore. We love to help Deci find her next long-term family. Please contact me for more information.

Harini Chundu & Andrew Moth 95 Reade Street, Apt 5S New York, NY To whom it may concern: We are writing to recommend Pat. She has been a warm presence around our two sons (Will 3 yo & Rob 1 yo) over the past three years. She began with us when Will was just a week old and helped build our childcare framework over the years. Her duties included grocery shopping & cooking for the kids, washing their clothes, as well as taking them to preschool and various other classes and activities which often included playdates that she took the initiative to set up. She emphasized healthy cooking and a regular schedule of going outside to play, which our boys enjoyed greatly. She read to them frequently, and interacted in ways which reflected a good deal of thought about what our sons enjoyed and what might be helpful or educational. In addition, Pat always left the house in good order -- she did some light housework such as dishes left from the night before, making our bed, and taking out the trash on garbage days. Furthermore, Pat was generous with her time and never said no to additional time whether we were running a few minutes late or needed coverage on the weekend. This was especially helpful given that her time with our family spanned our own job changes, a renovation, and an apartment move. Pat is very reliable having taken limited sick days and taking vacation that overlapped with ours. Given her love for our boys and reliability we are saddened to have to part ways due to some changes in our circumstance. We wish Pat the best and know she will bring love to the next family she joins! Best Wishes, Harini Chundu & Andrew Moth [email protected] 602.751.1964

Ngawang was our twin boys’ nanny from 3 months until they were 4 years old. She was an amazing partner to my husband and I, loving our boys like they were her own. As a working mom, I always knew that the boys were safe and loved when they were with her. Ngawang is caring, reliable, trustworthy, patient, hard-working and, almost as importantly, was so much fun with the boys. Our home was always neat and organized when we returned home at the end of the day, and she helped get our babies onto a schedule and transition to solids (they now east just about everything). She would arrange playdates, bring the boys to classes, play with them on the playground while also letting them explore under her watchful eye. She read to them constantly, and also made tons of art and crafts projects with them. Perhaps the highest compliment: neighbors in our building and from the diner/coffee shop nearby would always comment, unsolicited, on how wonderful she is and how lucky we are to have found her (we agreed). Similarly, the boys’ teachers always told us that she is a gem. We live in Gramercy so Ngawang knows that area and the East Village very well, but is also quite familiar with the Village and Upper East Side . We were extremely lucky we were to have had her help us raise our boys when they were little, and we think any family would be lucky to have her!

We have been just so fortunate over the past 4 years to have Stephanie for our nanny. She is wonderful. From the time that I went back to work, when my twins were just 2 months old, I have never had a moments worry about child care. My job is very demanding with long hours and Stephanie has made my very hectic life so much easier. I always knew that my babies were being carried for by a warm and loving person who is very responsible and reliable. She has been like a second mother to the two of them and they love her. The boys have now started school full time and they no longer need a nanny. It is our hope that we can help her find another family that will appreciate her as much as we have. Stephanie can take care of babies and children of all ages and she has taken care of several sets of twins and is extremely good at it. She has done a great job with my twin boys and has taught them to share and love each other and to be respectful and independent. She has always enjoyed taking the children out for activities, the playground, museum, library, music class, swimming lessons. She takes them to school and accompanies them to doctor and dentist appointments. She provides complete care for the children, making their food, doing their laundry, bathing them and most important she plays with them, makes them laugh, reads to them and teaches them their colors, numbers and alphabet. When I come home from work my house is tidy and my laundry is done. If you need a great nanny or know of someone who does, please reach out. I would be very happy to tell you more about the great experience we have had with Stephanie over the past 4 years.

Carmen has been with us for 18 years; she has raised both of our children. She is one of the hardest working, dedicated, and reliable people I have ever met. She work very well on her own and survives on very little supervision. She also works well in a team and has a reserved demeanor following the flow of work seamlessly. She relies on public transportation and often arrive at her destination early. For us, she has raised our children from newborns to college. During he 18 years with us, she has cooked for the kids, done light housework, including laundry, and transported the kids to school, doctors, dance lessons, play dates, and just about every other place they needed to be. She also just took them to the park, the zoo, the beach, etc. just for fun. She helps out during birthday parties and other family events, when ask. All this allows mom to work full time at a job that has loads of international travel. You can only do that when things at home are running smoothly! We would love to keep her, but we don’t have much of a need, anymore. Please let me know if you have any questions

Parent Reference
Every family that is looking for a nanny for their children wants someone to fit with them. To truly judge if someone is the right "fit" you have to meet them in person. What I can say about Jamiee: she is Kind, trustworthy, reliable and a hard worker. For our family, knowing that you have an extension of yourself with your children when you're not around was the most important thing in selecting a nanny; Jamiee is that extension. We recently moved from NYC to eastern CT and our children have started school. Jamiee has been with us since their births and since we don't need someone full time anymore (and she is looking for a position closer to NY) she is hoping to find another family to partner with and be as helpful to as she has been to ours. If the most important character traits you are looking for in a nanny are kindness, trustworthiness, reliability and work ethic, you should meet Jamiee.

Dianne is the best nanny, who has really become a member of our family for 14 years. She brings a positive energy to everything she does. I went to work with confidence knowing she was taking care of our son in the same manner we do ourselves. She not only played, read and engaged with our son but took time to teach him good manners and hygiene. While other nannies were sitting on their phones in the park, she was totally engaged with our son and interacting with him all the time. She is certified in child care, and takes pride in her work. She was available for us at night or on weekends (if we had to work late or wanted to grab dinner with friends). In addition to being great with our son and helping keep our house neat, she is a great cook! She is the most loving, and caring nanny you could hope for, and our hope is that she finds another family who will appreciate her.

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

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

My incredible nanny, who has been with our family for nearly four years, will be available in November as a baby nurse. Petra took care of both our son, now 4, and our daughter, now 2. Since day one, she’s been a gift to our family! She makes healthy meals for our kids, re-enforces that they need to clean up after themselves, and ensures they have fun each day, by finding them playmates, taking them to classes, or going on adventures, such as the zoo. She is full of energy, kind and reliable. It goes without saying, she adores children (and they adore her)! She is a true partner to us as a family. She is respectful of our beliefs as parents. She led both my children’s potty-training. When my son was old enough, she started teaching him his letters, how to spell and write his name. When he came home with optional homework from his part-time daycare, she sat with him until he finished. We’re going to miss her, so much! But with my son moving to pre-K, we’ve agreed this is a good time to part ways. She is looking to take on a role as a baby nurse (she is certified), working with a family who has children age 0 to 1. She can be very flexible: she can work overnight (as a baby nurse), evenings and weekends; she is able to travel; she can work in Manhattan or Brooklyn. She is available as of November 8th and would like to be paid on the books. We are more than happy to provide a reference—and she can provide a list of several other parents who’ve equally adored her. Please email ([email protected]) or text her ( 347-564-7102). Good luck!

She is extremely trustworthy and I would constantly get (unsolicited) comments from my neighbors and other mothers about how great she was with my daughter. Unfortunately I had to go part time and she needs a full time position and therefore needed to find a new position.

It is with great pride and admiration that we write to you on behalf of our current nanny Kay. If you are looking for a fun loving, trustworthy, experienced nanny to join your family Kay is without a doubt the one! My sister Danielle and I have daughters 2 months apart and Kay has been there nanny since they were 3 months old. We live in the same building and wanted our children to be with each other everyday once we went back to work. We feel very fortunate to have had Kay as a part of both of our families. Unfortunately both of our families have grown and are moving to the suburbs. Kay was highly recommended from her previous family who she is still very close with. Having been new parents Kay has not only taken amazing care of our girls but has taught us so much every step of the way. Kay was a tremendous help with our children as infants giving them so much love and attention. She guided us in the early months and with each milestone along the way, setup both of our girls amazing structure in there daily routine including a sleep schedule, eating schedule etc. As toddlers she is fun-loving and warm but also firm. She makes the kids giggle but also set boundaries of right and wrong and politeness. She has taught them so much more then we ever could have imagined.

She is very Punctual and responsible. In addition, She is fluent in English and is CPR and first aide certified. Currently Yakema is seeking 30 hours a week minimum but is open to Full time work (40-45 hours a week). I would love to discuss Yakema further if interested. She is a true Gem!

Carol is the BEST nanny a family could wish for. She is incredibly responsible, caring, thoughtful, safe, energetic, and helpful. Carol has been with us full-time for over 3 years and has never once missed work. Carol's full attention is always on our daughter- she is never on her phone. She has introduced our family to many activities for our daughter, arranges play dates, reads books, has provided us with many child-care tips (while remaining deferential to our wishes), and she always cleans up after our daughter. Our daughter truly loves her and we consider Carol a part of our family and invaluable partner in childcare. Carol has over 20 years of nanny experience with single and multiple children of all ages at a time. We would keep Carol if we could but our daughter is going to school full-time. We offer our highest recommendation and would be happy to speak any time. Any family would be lucky to work with Carol.

She is an extremely loving caregiver, with a wealth of experience with newborns up to school aged children. She is punctual, flexible with regards to daytime schedules, and has the ability to come early or stay late as needed. She has been a caregiver for much of her adult life, and is able to manage complicated schedules, playdates, and classes. Before working as a caregiver she was a chef and made meals for our children (and us if we requested). She also did light cleaning and kept our living and play spaces clean and tidy.

AMAZING NANNY AVAILABLE NOW!! Sandra is an exceptional nanny (and a professional cook to boot!). She is extremely talented and knowledgeable with infants and is equally as wonderful with older children as well. Sandra has taken care of my 3 children (now ages 7, 4, 2) for the past 4 years and has helped raise them with genuine care and love -- as though they were her own. Mothers often tell me how wonderful she is with my children. She has made many friends, arranged many playdates and is well liked by mothers and nannies (and children!) in our community. Sandra and I share the same values with regard to how I want to raise my children which means so much. She has good manners, is kind, thoughtful, honest and humble. I love how she always explains things to my children and talks to them (instead of scolding or simply saying ‘no’ to them). She also knows when I am tired, when I need to rest and have something to eat… At times she also took care of me (especially during my last pregnancy) and I appreciated that she was so well tuned into everyone’s needs and was proactive in helping all of us. Sandra started working for us a few months after my second son was born. When I met her (after interviewing many nannies) I finally felt a relief that I had found the right person with whom I could leave my newborn son (and his older brother) and trust that they would be in the best hands while I returned to work full time. Sandra has an innate sense of how to care for babies and she was equally wonderful at helping my older son adjust emotionally to becoming a big brother. She’s smart, trustworthy, extremely kind and caring, and attuned to each child’s individual needs. In addition to raising her own children, she has been a nanny for twin babies, special needs children, and families with multiple children for the past 16 years. She makes sure my children are fed a well balanced diet- and she is an amazing cook! She often makes enough for the whole family which is such a treat. My children are now in school full time and Sandra is looking for more hours /week than what I can offer her. Ideally she would like to work 25-40 hours a week. She prefers to start in the early morning and end before 6 PM (if possible). However, she is available to stay later if needed. If interested please call her directly at 646-346-9130. She would like to work in Manhattan or Brooklyn. She is WONDERFUL! Please also feel free to call me to talk more about her.

Parent Reference
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!

Tanya began with our family the day I went back to work when my daughter J. turned 4 months. She's been with us now for over two years and we are only letting her go as we are moving across the country. She is amazing! Tanya was absolutely rock-solid reliable - she literally missed exactly 1 day of work in over two years and did not show up late once, even when we moved twice and our routine totally changed. She showed extreme flexibility - traveling often with me and my daughter (both domestically and internationally) and occasionally staying overnight. I trusted Tanya with my baby daughter in all environments, to include foreign cities that were new to us both. Tanya was our family's rock and was an essential part of daughter J.'s happiness and development. Tanya supported us fully in some of our particular desires for our daughter - like cloth diapering, vegetarian living and no screen time. Tanya is a healthy and super fit caregiver who was always out doing activities with little J. at the park or the library or at Appleseeds. My friends saw her at the park on numerous times and always commented back to me how attentive she was. I feel confident that J. always had her full care and attention. She cooked her meals every day, brought her games for cognitive development, and was happy to play games and be silly to make J. laugh. We always came home to Tanya and J. laughing together. She also supported us as dual-working, regularly traveling parents - our house was always cleaner than we left it and she helped with laundry, groceries and errands to make our lives easier and to give us more time to spend with little J. ourselves. Our daughter J. has blossomed into the sweetest and smartest little girl spending her time with Tanya. The moment Tanya walks in the house in the morning, she runs over to hug Tanya and is quick to say goodbye to mom and dad!

My nanny has been with us for the past 10 years. She took care of Jackson as an infant and his little sister. My children are so kind, creative and calm as a result of her genuine and loving presence. So many mothers have wished for a nanny like Dolma. She is someone you want in your family. Always there for you/supports. Aware when things are stressful for you (i'm a working mom) and flexes to mind the kids more. She managed light house chores (more so for kids rooms/laundry) as I had a housekeeper once a week. She managed all kids meals. Dolma is looking for a live in role. I recommend her whole heartedly as she was such an incredible partner in raising my two children. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Literally, she was approached in the park on a regular basis because she was so loving and firm with our kids.

Our wonderful nanny of 6 years is looking for a new family now that our 2 kids will be in school full time. Michelle has been an incredible addition to our family. She joined us when my first daughter was 12 weeks old and has been with us for 6 years. My youngest daughter has not known a day in life without her! Prior to helping us she worked with twins, and has been with 2 other families in the neighborhood who all gave wonderful references. Michelle is warm and funny. She always has a smile on her face and takes pride in her career as a caregiver. She has been incredibly dedicated to our family and loves our kids. They run into her arms every morning when she arrives. Our kids will be in school full time starting in December but if the right family needs Michelle before that we will make it work to ensure she has a great next step. Michelle is looking for a full time role and can definitely handle twins if someone is looking for a caregiver with that specific experience. We want to help Michelle find a loving family that she can grow with so please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Carmen is a world class nanny with over 20 years of experience with children ranging from newborns to school age, in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Carmen is the ultimate professional. Extremely reliable, dependable, and consistent. She has never been late once, and rarely called in sick in all the 4 years she worked with us. She is spirited and extremely engaged with our children, constantly talking to them & always providing a stimulating environment. Whenever people comment on how verbal our children are, we have Carmen to thank. When they comment on what healthy and adventurous eaters they are, we have Carmen to thank. Teachers and our pediatrician have all commented about how lucky we were to find her. Often times parents are looking for a nanny to simply be a silent caretaker in their home, only working in servitude. While she always respected our wishes, and requests, her expertise would've been greatly under utilized had we taken on that attitude. Yes, these were my children and I had convictions about how they were going to be raised, but having someone with so much experience really expanded my mind and eased a lot of my worries. That was invaluable to us, especially when caring for my first baby. If you want someone with skills and a personality, Carmen will be a fit. If you're looking for a docile assistant, she won't. Carmen shines when caring for newborns/babies, and creates such a bond with them as they grow. Our children are still taking about how much they miss seeing her on a daily basis. We love her as a member of our family, and I'm certain the families before us would say the same. We'd all love to see her find a great family to work with next.

Marie has been with us since our daughter was born 16 years ago, and has been a loved and treasured member of our family ever since. Marie’s primary role in the early years was a hands-on caregiver to our daughter and newborn twins. She worked closely with my daughter’s speech & physical therapists between the ages of 2-6 years old. She then managed the after-school, dinner and bath time routine as the kids entered Pre-K and elementary school, providing a calm and loving presence in our very busy home. :) Marie remained close and connected to our children during their early adolescence, and continues to provide another loving and trusted adult in their lives as they navigate their teenage years (they are now 14 & 16). Marie now supports me with grocery shopping, cooking dinner every night cleaning, laundry for the whole family, errands, overseeing household projects, managing/ordering supplies, etc. Marie is a married mother with grown children - she is loving, kind, calm, trustworthy, responsible and would be a wonderful addition to a family with children of any age!

I can't say enough about the extraordinary nanny that Eva is. She cared for my best friend's child for three years before we were lucky enough to hire her once my friend's child entered school full time. Eva is warm, smart, trustworthy, communicative, and by all accounts, a baby/child whisperer. She has a way of being loving but firm, fun but clearly in charge. She never dumbs down her language when speaking with my son, or reasoning with him. She actively works with babies and toddlers on their mental and physical development. You'll always know the details of what happened in a given day, and she'll be able to provide great insight into your child because she's actually present with them, physically and mentally all day (she's not on her phone while absentmindedly pushing a stroller or sitting at a playground -- she's engaged, with great respect for her job and your child). We love Eva as part of our family, but alas, our own son is now entering school full time, and we only need part time care in the afternoons. Eva is looking to work with a family from 8am-12pm, Mondays-Fridays, in Brooklyn or on the West Side of Manhattan. Ideally one child, newborn to 3 years old. I'm happy to talk by phone to answer any questions but truly, having Eva is like hitting the nanny jackpot :)

Samantha has been our daughter’s full-time caregiver since she was 5 months old and she is now 3 years old. When we first looked for a nanny for our daughter, we interviewed numerous potential nannies, and Samantha came out on top. She was the clear and obvious choice. She is warm, fun and patient. She is a true professional with many years of experience and takes her job seriously while having fun, but always keeping safety in mind. It is clear that she truly loves her job and loves our daughter and helped us become better parents. Samantha made my transition back to work so easy. As a new mom, this was such an emotional time and she totally put my mind at ease. I knew I did not have to worry about my daughter at all. She would always engage our daughter in age-appropriate activities. She would keep her busy and have fun. Sadly Samantha is departing as we decided to put our daughter in a full-time school and my new job has a childcare facility. While we knew this time would eventually come, we are deeply saddened about losing her. She is now available for a new position and We are happy to answer any questions and provide a further glowing recommendation of Samantha. Here are some other reasons why we love Samantha: 1. Samantha always respected me as the mother and was always truly happy to follow my wishes even though she has many years of experience. 2. She was a tremendous resource to me as a first-time mom and had great advice whenever asked. 3. She has truly bonded with our daughter and you can tell they love each other. We will always think of her as family. 4. Everyone who encounters Samantha and our daughter at playdates and at school tell us how amazing she is with her, and how lucky we are to have her. 5. Samantha loves taking her on adventures (always with permission and when it becomes age-appropriate) and she is the one who introduced our daughter to other kids similar to her age in our building. Thanks to her we now know so many more families in the building! 6. Samantha is just an all-around great, loving and caring person to have in your life and we will truly miss seeing her everyday.

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. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

Our nanny has looked after our children for over 10 years, since shortly after they were born. She is responsible and fully engaged with our kids. She takes them to the park, she chaperones them at playdates and birthday parties, she picks them up from school and camp, she does homework and crafts with them, she takes them on neighborhood errands, she gives them meals and gets them bathed and (if we are late) to bed. Our children love and respect her, and we know she keeps a close eye on them. She is deeply involved with her community, her family, and her church. We no longer need full-time hours, which she would like. We would like to help her find a good family. Please get in touch if you are interested in meeting her, thanks.

I am in a unique position to recommend Lucille, as during the two years she took care of my son (from 3 months of age), I worked from home. Even though I stayed in my office throughout the workday, I could still overhear what went on during their time together, and it always filled me with joy. Lucille arrived on time every morning with a smile on her face, positive energy, and a big hug and kiss for my little one. I watched them form such a special bond, and I truly never worried when they were together. Whether it was tummy time on the carpet, stories, songs, games, or long adventures in the city's parks and playgrounds, I always knew he was loved and cared for by someone who took her responsibility as a caretaker seriously. Lucille always showed great patience and compassion with him along with a unique ability to communicate easily with me and my husband. She never shied away from issues or challenges, and always took a team approach to solving them together. As my baby grew, Lucille taught him to clap, nap, sit and roll over, to eat solids, to pick out his favorite books, to adventure into the sandbox and slide, to draw wonder from the sprinklers in the summer and the bookstore in the winter. To meet new friends and experience playdates, learning to share and take turns. To remember patience and the words to all their favorite songs. To trust in her and flourish under her watch. As he grew into a toddler, together they adventured into music and gym classes, new friends, new foods, and new routines. Lucille did it all with care and confidence, earning implicit trust from me and my husband, a special place in our hearts, and a place in our family forever. Any family would be lucky to have Lucille caring for their children. We are all the better for it, and certainly, so is my son.

AMAZING CAREGIVER AVAILABLE SEPT/OCT! Suzette has been with our family for over 5 years, since my oldest was a newborn, and has been such an important part of our two sons' growth and development, taking the most loving care of them and being an active advocate and educator for them as well, bringing educational books and toys in for them and working with them on everything from colors and language to reading and math. In a household with two working parents with demanding schedules, she always makes herself available and basically has made it possible for us to have our careers and our sanity and quality time with our children when we're home. She is great with kids from newborn on up, and really speaks their language in a way many grown-ups can't! She knows her way around the neighborhood and various classes, people and places, hosts various playdates, takes the kids on frequent park visits, to the Met and Barnes & Noble, etc. She also takes pride in keeping everything spotless, and it's been a pleasure to come home to such a clean and happy home each night. We frequently hear from other parents in the neighborhood about how great she is with our boys, who it's clear she cares for greatly. We recently moved, but my husband and I want to help make sure she finds another great family that she can care for and love over many years. I know she's ideally looking for a family with a newborn (or two!) and a full-time position in the city.

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

She's very supportive of whatever rules or parenting tactics the family wants to adhere to, but also has good ideas and can help come up with suggestions when needed, not only because of her rich experience as a nanny, but because she is also an amazing mom to a very bright little boy. Has experience with twins. I believe that working with her would be a wonderful opportunity for your family.

Sharon has been our full-time nanny for the past 3 years since I went back to work when my daughter was 13 weeks old. I interviewed about 15 different potential nannies but as soon as I met Sharon I knew she was someone very special and the person I was looking for to care for my baby. She is an incredibly loving, caring, professional nanny experienced with infants, toddlers and older kids. Back when Sharon first joined our family 3 years ago I had her renew her First Aid and CPR certifications. She was with her previous family for 10 years and 2 kids and before that she was with a family with 2 kids for 7 years. Additionally, Sharon is a mother herself who raised 4 adult children. My daughter and I truly love Sharon like family. I know that my daughter is safe and well cared for every day. She takes care of everything related to my daughter; cooking, laundry, clean up, groceries and tidies up the apt each day before I get home from work. Additionally, Sharon is very flexible and goes above and beyond. My schedule as a single mom is pretty hectic so occasionally I need Sharon to come early or stay late. Sometimes on short notice which she has always been able to accommodate. In 3 years Sharon has never called in sick or been late. In fact she is usually early. Thanks to Sharon, my daughter eats delicious home cooked food, is safe, happy, and well-mannered, was potty-trained at a young age, and knows how to say please and thank you. Sharon has also started on early education teaching her ABCs and 123s as well as singing and dancing. They always keep busy going to classes, the park, zoo, museums, play dates. I would love to keep Sharon forever but my daughter is starting school full time so sadly I must find Sharon a new home and family. She is the best and anyone would be lucky to have her. Please contact me for more info or reach out to Sharon directly.

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!

We hired Cynthia for a temporary position during the summer of 2018 in order to care for our two daughters, 4 and 2 years old. (Our nanny had to take medical leave for three months, thus the short-term hire). Cynthia was referred to me by a good friend and colleague who had hired her to care for her 2 children before her family left the city. Cynthia is totally focused on the kids! She is all about making sure they are safe, healthy, and happy. She is always on the lookout for interesting activities (children’s museum, classes, etc.) and play dates. She is also great about engaging them when just hanging out at the house, helping them create different crafts, bake muffins, or make healthy smoothies! She is diligent about watching out for their safety at the playground while allowing them to exert their growing need for independence. She is also all about making your life a bit better, cooking dinner and bathing the kids so you can just enjoy time together when you get home from work. She is a true gem!

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 relocated 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, is hypervigilant and CPR certified. Alcina wears many other hats as well. She prepares 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! 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.

AMAZING NANNY AVAILABLE IN SEPT!! Sonia is a stellar nanny who helped us with our son for over two years. Sonia is wonderful with newborns, and she is friendly and outgoing and always makes me laugh when I returned from work which is hard to do. I was always complimented that she taught my son excellent manners. Sonia is incredibly gregarious and always had play dates planned. Her own children are adults and so she was always willing to stay late if I was stuck at work which was often. Sonia is incredibly loyal she would even stay overnight with us during blizzards so I could get to work in the morning. I completely trusted her with my son; she is the only person other than family I would let stay overnight with him when my husband and I would travel. Originally, we shared her with another family who had a son a few years younger than ours; she moved with that family to Dallas for a while and has recently returned. Sonia is originally from St. Lucia and currently lives in the Bronx. She is up to date on her CPR/BLS and is looking for a job 35-40 hours a week over 3-4 days with an infant. If interested please call her directly at 914-648-6946. She is willing to work in Manhattan, the Bronx or Westchester in places that are accessible by public transport.

Grace is simply the best. Her next family in Bronxville, Scarsdale, Hartsdale, White Plains just won the lottery. It's hard to express in words how much we appreciate and love Grace-- and even harder to have to part with her. She took wonderful care of our now 8 month old daughter and toddler son. She has become a trusted extended member of our family. What really stands out for us is how we consistently receive GLOWING unsolicited feedback from neighbors, friends, and other parents. Of her many qualities, we are so grateful for how outgoing and social she is. We feel like our children are better for it. Her limitless energy and enthusiasm has our children keeping up with her (and not the other way around). Without even seeing her resume, you'll sense her years of experience and confidence right away. But, more importantly, she is extremely trustworthy. We never have to worry about our children when they are with her. We're going to miss her contagious laugh and how she nurtures our children. We'll also miss how our toddler actually listens to her :) Lastly, one simple thing she did that's unusual these days, Grace was ALWAYS on time. It's a small thing that makes a huge impact.

Tata is a warm and caring nanny who took care of my two children from 3 months until 9 years when we could no longer justify the expense. She nurtured them and took excellent care of them for all those years. She is great at coordinating play dates and managing complex schedules. She is entirely reliable and always willing to help out.

She has made my life as a working mom so much easier each day knowing my kids are safe, happy, and loved. I get picture updates and videos throughout the day that warm my heart and make me smile. She has amazing energy, proactively taking my kids to various playgrounds, museums, libraries, classes and setting up play dates. From singing, reading books, and chasing them around, to preparing their meals, doing their laundry, and keeping their rooms tidy - Kinely can and does do it all. Kinley communicates well and takes direction easily. She has a calm and gentle personality, but can also be firm when necessary. She has excellent judgement and is always prepared for any scenario. As an added bonus, she is a yoga instructor in her spare time and my girls love to learn new poses from her. I would unequivocally recommend her to anyone and I feel truly blessed to have my girls in her care.

Brenda was our full-time, live-in nanny for over seven years. While she hasn't worked for us full-time since 2014, Brenda continues to help look after our boys on an as-needed basis (when her current nanny job permits). Brenda is a great nanny. She made it possible for me to return to work worry free after both of my sons were born because I knew they were being well cared for. Brenda made sure our boys ate well (and healthfully), she took took them to school, play dates, sports practices, doctor appointments, dentist appointments, you name it. Brenda is a confident and experienced driver in all types of weather conditions and as a result, the boys regularly got out of the house and experienced a lot before heading to school full time. When they were babies and toddlers, Brenda make sure the boys were stimulated and took them to music classes, gym classes and to the park and the zoo. My whole family benefited from Brenda's love of children and her experience as a caregiver. I also have to give her full credit for successfully potty training both of my boys. My husband and I both have worked full time in the city since before our boys were born and have been able to continue to do so because we had her help for all those years - and we still benefit when she is available to help us out now.

Raquel is caring, patient, and attentive. She has been with our family for 2 years. My daughter will be in school 5 days a week this fall so we no longer need as many hours. Raquel truly loves kids and that is obvious in how she cares for my daughter. She has so much energy to play with her and teach her. When my daughter was very little Raquel started doing baby sign language with her, and later started teaching her the letters, numbers, shapes, etc. My friends have commented on how great she is with my daughter even when I’m not around. Raquel helps me straighten up the house when my daughter is sleeping or if I’m home playing with her, and every week she helps me chop vegetables / fruit and prepare food for the next couple days. She does all my daughters laundry and is happy to help out with mine too whenever needed. Raquel does not spend time talking or texting on the phone when she is with my daughter, she is fully focused on the child. Her next family will be so lucky to have her. She has experience with newborns through elementary school kids. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

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. I know that my kids will miss her terribly, but we intend on having her in our life for those emergency kid-sitting needs. 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.

Our children have grown older, and our wonderful nanny is looking for a full-time job with a new family. Padma has been with our family for 7 years and took care of our youngest from when he was born. She is gentle and loving with our three children. She has no problem managing the three children, giving attention to all three and their particular needs and safely getting them to activities after school. She coordinates playdates for the kids with other caregivers and parents and we often get compliments from other parents about her. She has juggled multiple pickups, activities, and age groups for years. She encourages their learning in school; for example, when our oldest first started reading in school, Padma would regularly take her to the library and have her pick out a large stack of books to practice her reading. Padma is responsible and always arrives early for work. She does not spend her time on her phone and gives the children her full attention. She is honest and trustworthy and respects our personal space in the house. She does the kids’ laundry weekly. At the end of the day, she makes sure the house is neat and all toys are put away. As our children are older and are now in school most of the day, we no longer need a full-time nanny. We know that she will be a wonderful help for a family with young children, and we recommend her with enthusiasm and affection.

Our wonderful, loving nanny has been with us for the past 7 years caring for our two boys who are now aged 4 and 6 since they were both infants. As they will both be starting school full time tomorrow we would love to place her with another wonderful family as soon as possible. Manika is extremely conscientious and has always cared for our children as though they were her own. We are heartbroken to let her go but our needs are only for very part time now for our boys. I can never recall a time that Manika was sick and is always extremely punctual. She is playful and proficient with organizing play dates, taking the children to the library, Central Park, playgrounds and more. She does the kids' laundry once a week and has always kept our apartment tidy. My husband and I recommend her highly without reservation. She came recommended to us 7 years ago and we could not be happier with her help and care for our children all these years. We live on the UES but she has worked for families on the UWS as well prior to working with us. She is a gem and you would be lucky to have her as part of your family!

Servette has been an essential part of our family since January 2012, taking care of our two sons, who are now almost 7 & 4 1/2 years old. We have been lucky to know her since 2001 when she lovingly cared for another member of our extended family. Our schedule has changed and we are hoping to help Servette find a wonderful family. Our boys love Servette very much, she is a genuine, kind person, and is always engaging with them. Servette started with our family when my oldest son was 3 months old. They were always out and about finding new things to do and making friends. One of my son’s best friends was made when he was 3 months old, thanks to Servette. She now does the same with our youngest while our older one is in school. She is very social and is always setting up playdates, finding free concerts and story-times, or going to various playgrounds, and parks. My youngest asks her, “Where are we going today?” because he knows he’s in for a fun day. Her love and support have helped to make our children kind, independent, and confident people. We trust Servette completely and know our boys are safe and protected with her. At the end of the day I come home to children who are well fed, bathed, and happy. My husband and I have always found it very easy to communicate with Servette, whether it’s working out vacation time, asking if she can stay late on occasion, or just general job responsibilities, we’re always on the same page. We are constantly saying how lucky we feel to have Servette in our lives and we know a new family will feel just as lucky. We fully recommend Servette and hope she can find a loving family to work for.

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 (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. Pamela & Nicholas Kournetas

Onica is an amazing nanny and we highly recommend her! She is reliable, punctual and flexible but most importantly she has built a great relationship with our daughter. She is very patient, caring, fair and always plans great activities and learning experiences both indoors (library, reading, singing...) and outdoors (park, play dates...). It has been a pleasure working with Onica for the past 20 months and we are very sad to lose her in November as our daughter starts day care.

She made our son baby food from scratch, did tons of tummy time and taught him more than we could’ve possibly imagined .She stared as ourbaby nurse and stayed with us for 15 months. She is very reliable. In the past year and a half she never taken a sick day .

Now that our daughter is in daycare, our amazing french speaking nanny, Mariama is looking for a new family. She is currently working part-time but would prefer a full-time opportunity. I continue to sing Mariama's praises as she babysits both of our kids to date. She is the caring but promotes children's independence and growth. She has a good attitude, good judgement and doesn't need her hand held. She's homely but still professional AND she's always on-time. My daughter is in love with her and I too have developed my own relationship with her that I truly value. In addition to teaching and guiding my daughter which is always most important, Mariama is extremely neat and clean. I still ask her to come in when I need help re-organizing and tidying up. She cooked healthy meals and made sure Elise grew up eating healthy. Mariama did Elise's laundry as needed. She also arranged her activity schedule and play-dates. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. You can also contact Mariama directly at (646) 406-3592.

Our amazing nanny is looking for full time work starting late September/October. She has been with us for almost 6 years, with both our son and daughter, and we are heartbroken to see her go. Our younger one is starting pre school so she is looking for a new family to start with. She is 100% reliable, responsible, honest, patient, kind, creative, active and healthy cook, intelligent, and caring. Our kids love her and they are always all laughing together. She is also super neat/clean, and has taught the kids to be the same (washing hands, etc.) She was never late and never missed a day's work. We will miss her terribly but hope that she can find a great new family to work with!

Experience With: newborns, toddlers, preschool, elementary; Graduated more than 5 years ago;

  • Cook: Yes, for kids only

  • Cleaning: Yes, light cleaning only
  • Live in/out: Only live-out
Parent Reference
We are so lucky Maurisa came into our lives! Our son (currently 10 months old) was scheduled to start daycare in May, but it was unexpectedly delayed for several months. Maurisa happened to be available, so she is taking care of our son full-time until daycare starts in September. We were new parents with zero childcare experience; her knowledgeable and confident care brought relief and comfort during this stressful time. Maurisa takes the initiative (without any prompting from us) to find activities for him. She regularly takes him to the library for story/play time. She spends as much time with him outdoors as possible, exploring different playgrounds, parks, and neighborhoods. She visits with other nannies so he can interact with children both his age and older. It would have been easy for her to just spend all day everyday in our building's playroom, but she chooses to keep their time together varied and engaging, which, as you know, can be challenging. She helps us keep him on a regular feeding/napping schedule, sends updates and photos throughout the day, is always on time, and has an energetic, positive attitude that is a joy to be around. She is affectionate, playful, and attentive to his needs but firm when he starts acting up. She is also thoughtful and generous; for example, she sometimes brings over some perfectly ripe fruit for me to use in his breakfast smoothies. She even bought him a ball one afternoon because she noticed how much he enjoyed playing with one that belonged to another kid. Most importantly, we feel Maurisa's greatest asset has been the genuine love that she shows for our son. It was difficult for us to return to work after parental leave. Watching him smile in the mornings when she arrives, seeing how content he is at the end of the day when we return home, and observing the bond between them...he clearly feels loved and safe with her, and for that we will forever be grateful. You can contact Maurisa directly or contact me if you have any questions.

Sherine has been taking care of our (b/g) twins for 2.5 years, since they were 6 months old. She has proven herself as patient, loving, compassionate, experienced, hard working, and the cleanest nanny we ever had. Both my husband and I work full time, and Sherine has been the \"other parent\" who's always there for the kids when we were busy with our jobs. She played with them, cleaned after them, fed them and washed them, and taught them to talk and count, read them books to learn about animals, colors, cars, planets etc., and most importantly, taught them how to share, care, and love each other, and be respectful and independent. As a personal level, she is honest, positive, and discreet, ask and follow instructions to a T. We trust her completely with our kids. When I get frustrated sometimes (probably common for first time parent), Sherine has provided a much needed sense of clam and assurance to our daily life. The twins are blossoming, and we feel that we owe Sherine a great deal for their growth and happiness. We are very sad to see her leave due to family reasons, but at the same time we really hope, and want to help her find a great family to work with. I will be very happy to talk to and answer any question from perspective families if they are interested. Thank you for your interest! Best regards, Carol

Latoya was such a pleasure to work with. She always came to work with a smile on her face and she brought such joy every time she stepped into our home. She genuinely cares for my children as if they were her own, all while remaining professional. She is very careful to follow any of the instructions I left for her. She takes every precaution to ensure my children’s safety. She’s willing to cook lunches for my children if/when I don’t leave pre-prepped lunches for them. She does the kid’s laundry and folds and puts them away neatly. She loves to take the children out for a walk and to play at the nearest park. She is always finding creative things for the children to learn and experience. Above all she was very open and honest about how the kids day went and how she felt working with our family. I love the fact that she sent pictures of the kids throughout the day. We greatly appreciated how easy it was to communicate with her. Every morning when I left for work I was confident in the care that Latoya would be giving my children.

Our amazing, sweet nanny Leila is available 3-4 days a week this fall. Leila has tremendous experience, having been with all her families for 6+ years from the newborn stage onwards. She started with my family when our son was 2 months old, and has been incredibly helpful in coaching us through many of his evolving stages. Leila cared deeply for our son as though he were her own. She helped develop his skills, and demonstrated high levels of patience while doing so during his more difficult days. She provided tips and techniques on how to handle his growth developments and training, which really benefitted me as a new mom with lack of experience in child care. She helped with laundry, kept tidy. She was always on time with our demanding schedules (as early as 730), and sharp with following routines/tweaking schedules if times were off for the day. Having been a NYC nanny for so many years, she understands the various needs of the family and really focuses on caring for the children whilst making it easier for the parents. Leila is loving and extremely sweet, and truly cared for my son as though he were her own. I hope her next family takes care of her as well as she did ours, and as well as she will yours.

Our amazing, flexible nanny Tasha is available for full- or part-time positions beginning in September. Tasha has meant the world to us and our 3-year-old son over the year she has cared for him. Tasha has both youthful energy and maturity beyond her years - she’s been attuned to our son (and our) needs, and took complete responsibility for him, including his social, emotional and educational needs. It was a source of security and stability, in our hectic lives, to to know that Tasha would care for our son until late in the evening if necessary and receive her updates and beautifully composed pictures throughout the day (whether of Teddy at the playground, on play dates, reading at the library or simply goofing around at home). We couldn’t recommend Tasha more highly.
