Parent Reference
Leloutee "Vilma" Gokool has been our beloved nanny for five years now, and we sadly no longer need her because our kids are in school full time. She is kind, gentle, active, engaged -- everything you could ask for in a nanny. She has been with us since our oldest was four months old, so she's had experience with infants through kindergarten. Vilma is also very friendly and has established a network of nanny friends, so she frequently sets up play date for our kids.

Parent Reference
Any family would be happy if they had a nanny who was amazing like Hazel. She always goes above and beyond to ensure that our child was safe and happy. Hazel was able to not only care for the baby but also, set up play dates, activities, and outings for our child. She is always on time, usually early before her start time. If we needed her to stay later she was accommodating. She is also available weekends if necessary and always encouraged us to have date nights as young parents. She prepared meals for our child but also would occasionally make meals for us without being asked. She made sure laundry was completed for the entire family even though the baby was her only focus. Hazel would fit in with any family. She takes our needs as parents into consideration but also brings her expertise as a nanny and mother into the home she is working in. We valued her opinions and was always able to have an open dialogue with her so that we could always be on the same page. She is currently looking for a full time job and I believe Hazel can surpass your expectations as she did ours. You won't be disappointed by the work that Hazel provides.

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

Sonam has been a nanny to our 8 month old son for four months. Our son will be transitioning to daycare, thus we are posting to help her find a new family to work with. Sonam is a wonderful caregiver to our son - she has a gentle and competent demeanor, and from the beginning we felt comfortable leaving our little one in her care. She is extremely responsible and reliable, and has over 25 years of experience as a nurse (in India) and as a nanny. Daily she sends us photos and texts to update us on how our son is doing and what they are up to. She has found activities to do in the neighborhood (parks, library, story time), and other nannies to connect with so our son can have playdates. She helped set up a structure for our son, setting a schedule of naps, meals, playtime, and plenty of outdoor time. Ideally, Sonam is looking for a full-time position caring for a young child residing in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens. We recommend her without reservations - please reach out if you have any questions!

My husband and I are moving away and are devastated to be losing our amazing nanny Rosario. Rosario has been with my son since he was 6 months old and has been just the best nanny I could imagine for the last year. Her biggest strength is how actively present she is for Elliott. She's constantly engaged with him, playing games, singing songs, reading books. He always has her full attention. She's fun, warm, and loving with him and they laugh a lot together. She is always very calm. I've never seen her even remotely flustered or frustrated with my son. I've learned a lot about how to be a better parent from her. Rosario is always on time. When she walks in the door, she only takes a few second to wash her hands before jumping right in and taking over. She's never on her phone when she's with him. She takes Elliott outside most of the day to parks, playspaces, singalongs, the library, playdates, etc. She proactively sets up playdates and finds activities for them to do. He's a super active kid (started walking at 9 months and never looked back), and she's always keeping him engaged and busy. Elliott adores her and lights up whenever she walks in the door. Rosario primarily speaks Spanish and has taught my son Spanish (my husband and I don't speak much Spanish and the language barrier isn't much of an issue). When she first started, Elliott wouldn't take a bottle from anyone, and she had him drinking out of a bottle by the end of their first day. She's kept him on a consistent nap schedule and has been proactive and flexible about getting him to sleep on days when he's difficult about it (when he's sick or as he was switching from two naps to one). I often work from home, and she has such a light footprint in our house, I'm always able to get work done and be on phone calls. And at the end of the day the house always looks better than it did in the morning. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions. We're so sad to be losing Rosario, and are keen to help her find a new job she loves. Any family would be lucky to have her. Cheers, Zoë (mom to E)

We utilize our nanny’s services 3 days per week, she is seeking full time work. Jacqueline has a college degree, is fluent in French, English and a bit of Spanish. But most important, my daughter adores her. Jacqueline has made quite the impression on us and most important on our 4 year old. Jacqueline has the perfect balance of being sure our little one follows the rules we set while at the same time making their time together fun. We have a talkative and at times hyper toddler and Jacqueline maintains a level temperament throughout their interaction. Jacqueline easily moves around our household watching our girl without being intrusive. I absolutely trust her in our home, with our things and of course with our toddler. When weather permits they go to the park, play dates, pretty much anything we need Jacqueline can be counted on. It is for these reasons and more I highly recommend her services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

She cooks when I am not able to and the kitchen, playroom, and my son's room are always under control when I walk in the door. Chin is one of the most responsible people I know and honest to a fault. If you are looking for someone dependable who is always on time, checks in before taking your child anywhere, who laughs and plays and keeps in touch with photos and texts, she is perfect.

I simply cannot recommend Maria more highly, and I personally would feel delighted for her to be the nanny in a warm, loving home. For 14 years we were lucky enough to have Maria as part of our family. I am a mother of two young adults who benefitted tremendously from the warm, attentive, patient and always responsible care they received from Maria. Maria by nature understands, loves and is loved by children. She is intelligent, reliable, dedicated, and friendly. She is completely trustworthy, has good judgment, and her first priority is the child's welfare. Maria is punctual and responsible at all times, and we trust her completely. Maria creatively cares for children of all ages, adjusting her manner so adeptly to the maturity level of the children. I have never seen Maria other than calm, and she is engaging and loving. She smiles and laughs often, is never intrusive, overbearing or bossy, but she knows what is needed. She puts children at ease because it is her nature to be kind and engaged. She adapts to the child's interests, and she has excellent instincts as to how to engage with different personalities, as I saw with my son and my daughter. She is always highly attentive to health matters and cleanliness. In terms of light housekeeping, anyone would be completely satisfied - Maria is always looking to do something productive when the children do not need her attention. As I worked full-time throughout the period while Maria was our nanny, I was delighted to come home to a house that was always much neater and cleaner than it was when I left it. Maria has an extraordinary work ethic – she never sits still, is always proactively using her excellent housekeeping skills, and consistently looks for ways to tidy up and organize as needed. Maria prepares delicious meals, varied and healthy, that our children always enjoyed. Our children miss her, and we all consider her family! One cannot do better than to hire Maria - she can be reached at 646-331-5053 ([email protected]), and feel free to call me, Susan, at 267-438-6792 for any further recommendation.

Our wonderful nanny of three years, Nicole, is looking for a new family, be it in Ditmas Park, Kensington, Park Slope or elsewhere in Brooklyn. Our son, Ford, started school earlier this year in Midwood (We live in Kensington) and we no longer need childcare full time. Nicole is an experienced nanny and her prior family in Park Slope raved about her. Our son adores her and she's been amazing at anticipating his needs and getting him into a healthy routine. She's also incredibly easy to work with and we can count on one hand the number of times she's called in sick. She's super reliable, always shows up on time, and has helped guide us through some of our son's developmental phases when, as first-time parents, we weren't sure what to do. Nicole is looking for full-time work, with taxes taken out--preferably between the hours of 8 and 4, which is her schedule now, but she says she's flexible there.

Parent Reference
Antonette has been a calm, constant and loving presence in our son's life since he was an infant (he is currently nearly 5). She understand our son and has the patience to work with him, making him feel love and secure. She is unfailingly diligent and reliable, whether it be following directions, running errands, reporting on our son's behavior, arriving for work or attending school activities in our stead. She has transitioned seamlessly through every growth stage and has upheld our approach to parenting, making for a consistent upbringing for our son. We are routinely told - from other parents, caregivers, teachers and instructors how wonderful she is. Antonette was herself raised in a loving home and I believe her approach to nannying is reflective of her understanding of how important it is for children to feel secure. We are simply parting with her because we are moving across the country - and hope to find her a good placement. In January, Antonette will be starting nursing school part-time and will be available M-Th, 3-7 pm and Fridays 1-7 pm.

We are moving out of state and I'm looking for a new family for our nanny of 3 years, Khady. We would take her with us if she'd come. Strangers and neighbors stop me on the street to tell me how wonderful she is. They recognize my kids when I am with them on weekends and are compelled to tell me how lucky we are to have Khady (they are correct). This happens on a regular basis. Why you should meet her: She is gentle, kind and fiercely protective of my 2 kids She is always out exploring with the kids - she proactively finds activities for them to do, many free. She has a schedule that keeps them out all day and includes the library, book store, pet store, (free) music classes, playdates and more. She is always teaching them. I am embarrassed to say that she taught them ABCs, numbers, potty training, etc before I even thought about starting. She is flexible, and works with our family's ever-changing needs. She has never taken a sick day, and never had to miss work last minute - even when the MTA has suspended all public transportation. She finds a way. Bilingual French / English Is not on her phone all the time (this is important to me) All-around wonderful. My husband thinks she should be President.

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.

Nanda has a calm disposition under all circumstances and understands parent needs, children varying schedules, and parent schedules/travel. Nanda helps arrange playdates, helped bring our children to doctor appointments, etc. She respects the privacy of the family as well. She has a family of her own that are helpful as well.

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

Activities like visits to the library, story and play time classes and spending as much time outdoors as possible, exploring different playgrounds and Central Park. Manika also arranges visits with other nannies so our boys can interact with their friends and other children. Without asking, she would send photo updates throughout the day knowing I would be missing the boys while at work. Most importantly, we feel Manika’s greatest asset has been the genuine love that she shows for our children. Manika has always brought a positive and loving attitude in her approach to caring for our two boys. I do not believe you will find a nanny with more energy, integrity and patience than Manika, nor someone who is more trustworthy and reliable. My husband and I recommend Manika without reservation. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about our experiences with her.

Amy is a loving caring woman who was an amazing support to us while we were in NYC for 4 months over the summer . She took great care of our 5 year old boy , and kept me at ease in a big city that he had never experienced before . She protected him , gave him confidence , and allowed him to explore the city in a way he will never forget . They had so much fun together. They would laugh and sing , but she would also be firm with him when it came to homework time ! She would work crazy hours for us with no complaint , early in the morning , over night , late into the night . I would highly recommend her to look after any child , added bonus she is fluent in French !

Marlyn had been our full-time nanny to our three kids for over 5 years. Prior to our third child, she was our nanny for just our boys for two years. Marlyn is wonderful with children and I always came home to a clean and peaceful house. She is dependable, honest and always puts the kids first, as if they are her own. Marlyn is able to be flexible with her hours, so when I needed her to come early or stay late, she was able to make It happen for our family. Unfortunately, our children grew up and they no longer needed a nanny. Otherwise, we would have employed Marlyn forever!

Before she came to us, Pauline had been a foster mom for over 20 years. She started with us as a night nanny when our son was a newborn. She was so knowledgeable and helpful that we asked her to come during the day. I am a stay at home mom and our son has special needs, so we just needed part-time help. She worked with us until we moved to New Jersey when our son was 4. Pauline's greatest strength is her experience with all different kinds of kids. She taught me so much as a new mom and always cared for our son as though he were her own. I never worried about her being distracted on her phone or with friends. She was always laser focused on him. She still has school aged kids at home, so a part-time assignment would probably be best for her right now.

We are writing this letter to convey our sincere recommendation of Gem - our nanny. Gem is the BEST nanny a family could wish for. Gem is amazing at what she does and a truly great loving person. She is incredibly responsible, caring, thoughtful, safe, energetic, and helpful. We are very sad that we have to let her go since our parents decided that they will take care of their grandson for some time. It was an extremely hard decision for us and we are still sad to see her go. If you are looking for a very experienced, loving, trustworthy, creative and capable nanny to join your family, you don’t want to miss Gem. Gem has been with our son since he’s 3 months old and our son loves her so much that he giggles and jumps when he sees her every morning. Gem has been a tremendous help with our son as infant giving them so much love and attention. Gem was highly recommended from her previous family who she is still very close with. We are new parents; Gem has not only taken amazing care of our son but has taught us so much every step of the way. He is a big baby and always wanted to be held by us. I had to go to physical therapy since I was holding him so much since he was born. Gem guided us with each milestone along the way, setup amazing structure in his daily routine including a sleep schedule, eating schedule etc. And I don’t need to hold him all the time anymore. Now he is one year old and started solids, Gem makes him all types of baby food which looks so delicious that we wanted to steal sometimes. Our son loves what she makes and he is a strong baby who never got sick once yet. We live in a small apartment and but Gem always have great ideas to make it more friendly for the baby to crawl around. She is a very loving person and has a very kind heart. We could tell when we first met her and the time we spent together proved that we are right. We can tell from how our son look at her that he loves her very much. We believe that a loving, honest and patient person is our top priority when we were looking for a nanny and we found one. Needless to said, Gem is very good with babies. She loves singing and talking to him. She also has lots of knowledge with dealing with different situations from her previous experience and also from being a grandma herself to a toddler and a baby. Our son hit all the growth milestones and also is a very happy baby. We need to thank Gem for that. Since day one, Gem has kept us informed through text, photos and videos, this has helped ease any worries we have had as new parents, we know that he is always safe, and well cared for. We never asked for many things but she does it no matter what, for example, she massages our baby and changes him every morning, she buys gifts for him when she see something that he might need. She put coconut oil on his hair and massages his scalp after she baths him. She writes down the feeding schedule so we can easily look up when we are home. She tells us when his diapers or formula was running low. We never questioned Gem reliability; she is always on time and always willing to accommodate us when needed. Gem keeps the apartment clean and organized toys are always neatly put away. Anyone who adds Gem to their family is considered beyond lucky the love that she has for our son is undeniable. We offer our highest recommendation and would be happy to speak any time. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any other information. You can reach out to us either by email or phone.

Samantha has been our daughter’s full-time caregiver since she was 5 months old and she is almost 3.5 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.

Our loss is your gain! I am writing on behalf of our amazing nanny, Rosemary Francis, who has been wonderful with our newborn son. Rosie is nurturing, has a calming presence and is extremely reliable. She connected with our newborn son immediately. Rosie has the magic touch and is always able to calm him and make him smile even amidst a meltdown. As a first time mother I was very nervous about handing my child off to someone I did not really know, but after seeing how calm and capable Rosie is with him, I now feel very comfortable leaving my son in Rosie’s hands. Rosie is great about making me feel connected with my son even when I am not around. She constantly sends us pictures of him and lets us know how his day is going. She was great about taking and leaving detailed notes regarding his feeding and sleeping schedule. She takes him to the park whenever the weather is nice and has been very proactive about finding activities for him, like the baby story time at our neighborhood library branch. She has also been good about making sure he gets tummy time at home and she keeps him on a regular schedule, which helps with the morning and evening hand-off. When Rosie walks in to the apartment in the morning, the first thing she does is sing good morning to our son, which elicits lots of smiles from him. He is always happy to see her. If I am running off to work, she is prepared to take my son from my arms and make sure that he is taken care of. On those days where I am not running off to work, Rosie is great about cleaning up, making sure the dishes are done, his laundry is taken care of, sterilizing his bottles and pacifiers and getting organized for the day. Rosie came to us with almost 18 years worth of childcare experience. Rosie was with her previous family for almost eight years. Her previous family spoke incredibly highly of her. Unfortunately, due to extenuating circumstances on our side we need to let Rosie go and we want to make sure she ends up with a wonderful family. We will miss Rosie terribly. Do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

Sharlene has been a wonderful nanny for my 3 years old daughter. We are moving to Spain in December and we would like to find a good family for her. She has great energy, she is cheerful, loving, caring and reliable. Sharlene genuinely likes to play with my daughter and enjoys spending time teaching her (letters, seasons, vocabulary, looking for insects in the park, etc). My daughter loves books and books are a daily activity they do together plus 2 days going to the library to participate in activities and get new books. She takes my daughter to dance and yoga class which they do together, and she enjoys to participate and have fun with her. They are always out and about, meeting other babies and toddlers, having playdates, going to the parks and have little adventures. They have daily story time and arts and crafts which they have fun together. My daughter always shows me proudly when I come back home her precious art pieces. Sharlene does not use any TV or technology, which is our family policy too. Sharlene encourages my daughter to be herself, to not fear and have always fun and learn through play. They enjoy cooking together daily as my daughter loves to cook and help in the kitchen. She teaches my daughter also about cleaning up, good behavior when necessary (in a clever way) and keeps a good daily routine for her. She is proactive and have a very good judgement which I really think is important when someone who is not yourself is taking care of your child. If I'm late at last minute she has no problem with that; or to stay late some evenings if necessary. She has always been flexible with our family's schedule and accommodating to our needs. Sharlene genuinely enjoys taking care of children. She has CPR certification on infants and toddlers. She cooks the 3 meals per day and all dishes are really good meals (I'm from Spain so I do really like to keep a Mediterranean diet which she did wonderfully). She helps with light housekeeping and keeping the apartment tidy. Helps with my daughter's laundry if needed. She loves animals and not afraid of dogs. You are welcome to contact me for further references. We are sad to have to leave her. Thank you!

Carmi has a very good sense of understanding a child’s need for routine and their need for stability and love in a parents absence. She reads, plays, follows my educational queues and is wonderful at giving them a nurturing presence. Carmi is also smart and quick to follow my lead on shifts in the house or routine. She also can handle dr. appointments and report back word for word what happened, a huge relief for a working mamma. You can basically check out of your home life from 8am to 6pm, M-F without blinking. Not that you would. But you could! I don’t use those words lightly. Carmi has it covered.

I'm writing to recommend our nanny Margaret Mary Simmons for anyone seeking full-time childcare. Margaret is an exceptional care-taker. With more than 20 years experience, including with multiple children (one child in our case, but two with previous employer). She is energetic and proactive, organized, kind and thoughtful. Margaret started with us when our daughter was 6 months old and will have been with us for almost 2 years. While we would love to keep her on, our family situation has changed and we will no longer need her services. Margaret is one of the most dependable people i know. She cared for our daughter fully and capably, folllowing instructions given and provided regular feedback on their activities during the day. In addition, for the entire duration of her employment, almost 2 years she was never late for work not once. She is also very responsive to our family's needs, for example my husband and i would both often have to unexpectedly work late during the week and she was always flexible to the situation. As our daughter was an infant and grew into a rambunctious toddler under Margaret's care, we appreciated that she was always actively reading, singing, engaging, talking and playing with her which we felt was critical to her early childhood development. Margaret is also very active and enjoys spending time outside, going for walks, to the park, to the library and different children's classes as well as arranging playdates. Her many years of experience are complimented by her agility which should be appreciated by anyone with active children. Margaret displays the highest levels of integrity and honesty in all aspects of our interactions with her.

Our wonderful, devoted, soon-to-be former Nanny is available beginning in early November and is looking for a full time, live-out position. She has worked for us for 6 1/2 years —from the time my daughter was 3 months till first grade. She has more than 21 years of nanny experience and is super-reliable, loving, organized, warm, and responsible. Our daughter has some developmental challenges and has made tremendous strides, thanks in large part to J.J. JJ is incredibly patient, attentive and extremely tuned in to my daughter and her needs, and that’s made a crucial difference in her development. We can’t say enough about how dedicated J.J. has been to our family, and the joy she’s brought to our daughter’s life. Our home was always spic and span when J.J.’s working, and she always takes special care with the laundry and folding clothes. She loves to prepare homemade food and is a fabulous feeder, taking true pleasure and pride in the whole eating process. J.J. can make friends with anyone, and loved introducing our daughter to all of the neighborhood community, from story time at the library to the playground. When J.J. is with my daughter she has her complete, undivided attention and is never on her phone. Since our daughter has successfully made the transition to full-time school, we no longer need a full-time nanny. We’ll miss her dearly, but we’re looking forward to her continuing to be a part of our lives.The family that JJ works with next will be very lucky! As a mother herself, and a caregiver for some very lucky children over the years, JJ has the experience and spirit to become a huge asset to the right family. (And please note that most of her experience is with typically developing children.) She lives in Brooklyn and has lots of experience in Manhattan, specifically the UES and East Village (where we live).

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.

Violet has been with us for 13 years since my two boys were born. I can't imagine a better and more loving and devoted nanny. She is part of our family and whoever knows her would tell me I have the best nanny and I always knew that. Unfortunately our family is going through a divorce and we can not afford her any more.

We have relocated cities and are on a mission to find a terrific new family for our superb nanny, Donna. She has been with us since our eldest child was 3 months old! We simply don't know where to start in terms of describing our wonderful nanny and the impact she has had on our entire family. She is a joy to be around and a wonder with children. She has assisted us in raising our children every step of the way. She is responsible, kind, hard working, patient, trustworthy and has excellent instincts. Donna is an inherently good person and communicates and partners well with parents. Initially, I remember the relief I felt when I hired Donna and could see our son was in exceptionally capable (and loving) hands. She was an instrumental part of getting him on a schedule. She kept notes of the schedules initially, prepared homemade food for him and spent the days interacting with him. Our son was an early talker and we credit Donna for much of that. She made sure that their days together were filled with time outside, crafts (when he grew old enough up), games and reading - no television. Moreover, when our son's baby sister arrived, the transition to helping with two was seamless. In addition to being an amazing caregiver, Donna did a wonderful job maintaining our home. We always returned to a spotless home at the end of the day with children clean so we could focus on just them during the little time we had before bedtime. We initially worked mega long hours and she always arrived on time. Donna has always showed great initiative, she read and sang to our children a lot and the babies/children would go out and explore the local neighborhood and, as they became older, further afield. Moreover, opening the door at the end of a work day and seeing happy clean children is a forever memory (not to mention a tidy home)! Donna has stayed relevant and continued to add great value to our children's lives and our family overall. Moreover, Donna was often flexible with her schedule and willing to stay late, work weekends and even spend the night if need be. Our entire family adore her and wish to help her find her next great home. The family Donna chooses to work with next will be in great hands.

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.

Hello, We have had the privilege of having Sandra as our caregiver/nanny for the past two years. That said, she has truly become a member of our family during this short time. She is reliable, loving, fun, trustworthy and creative. She has cared for our now six year old son and four year old daughter. She’s only become available due to our family departing the city for a new job opportunity in DC. She (as do we) live in Harlem. Importantly, from the first time our children met her they were comfortable and she quickly became in tune with their needs. We’ve seen (and been amazed) at how easily she has diffused situations when our kids were fussy. Sandra is able to effectively communicate with them, with us and also on our behalf when engaging the children’s school or at extracurricular activities. Sandra eagerly pitches in as needed. She completes light cleaning, laundry, and cooking for our children. Our children describe her cooking as amazing and they often request some of her specialties. When we told them we were moving their first response was is she coming with us! Sandra is compassionate, soft-spoken and a light-hearted person. She has truly been a blessing to our family. We treasure everything she has done for our family and will miss her dearly. She is available immediately. If you would like more information please message me or contact me [email protected]

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 - that’s a big part of her philosophy as a caregiver. 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!

It is my pleasure to recommend Donna Stallings as a nanny. Now transitioning my son to school is one of the hardest experiences because it means parting ways with Donna, however he is ready and needs the socialization that comes with this new Montessori environment. Donna came on board to work with us in June 2016, when my son was just 8 weeks old. I could see from the first meeting that she had a special way with children and immediately felt comfortable. For over 2+ years, she spent 40-60 hours a week with my son, proving that first impression more and more as time went on. Donna has an innate ability to foster a fun/loving environment and simultaneously impart guidance in learning and social responsibility: she and my son Fip became the best of friends and are to this day. And throughout, I had the pleasure of witnessing new growth from him each night when I returned home: new words, eating new foods, practicing manners and conscientiousness, and overall personal awareness. Donna is a consummate professional and very reliable. I can’t remember many times over the years that she was unable to come to work, and truth be told it was usually because I insisted she stay home, for safety (weather, etc) or to get rest (when she was not well). Over the years together, I never worried about the safety of my son when he was with her. She was always patient, never lost her cool, and treated my son with respect and an expectation that he develop a sense of responsibility – which I’ve been able to see influence his growth and maturity. Though it was never part of her duties, on a daily basis Donna went beyond her responsibilities when it came to responding to our personal lives and doing things to help out the household overall, helping with chores and errands, taking Fip to appointments and on outings. She has inarguably become and will remain a part of our family, not just for my son but for all of us. I recommend Donna with full confidence. She is an outstanding nanny and person, who I’ll continue to trust with full access to my family and home forever. Please don’t hesitate to call me if you would like to talk more about our experiences with her.

It is with a very heavy heart that we have come to the conclusion that we no longer need a full time nanny. Joann has been with our family since my older daugher was 4 months old (she is now 11 and my younger daughter is 8). Our kids adore Joann and so do we. She is responsible, proactive, independent, loyal and caring. She is always on time and rarely misses a day of work. She coordinates schedules for our kids and arranges their playdates. Most importantly, she loves and suppports them. Our ideal situation would be to find another job for Joann on the Upper East Side so she could still come to us one or two afternoons a week (we could be very flexible) or even just for dinner one night a week -- we very much still want Joann in our lives.

Servette has been an essential part of our family since January 2012, taking care of our two sons, who are now 7 & 4 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 when we moved her from Manhattan 3 years ago she quickly met other nannies with similar aged children and began forming friendships and setting up playdates. Additionally, she is always finding free concerts and story-times, or going to various playgrounds, and parks. 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.

I write in support of Lyn Rogers's application for a Nanny position. Lyn is an incredibly qualified, professional, and caring woman, and our little Jaden thrived enormously under her care. Lyn's strength as an employee and caretake, in my view, from her confidence. She acts confidently and with good judgment, and I trust her always to put my child 's best interests at heart. Lyn is firm but kind as a disciplinarian, and she sets goals and accomplishes them. Lyn also has good values. I know that each child has his or her own personality, but there is no denying that our son Jaden is friendly, smart, and well-adjusted to the world because of Lyn. As for friendly, she spent a good amount of time ensuring that Jaden had fun things to do with other children and was very loving with him, and he loved her back. As for smart, Jaden favorite thing, because of Lyn, is to pick up a book and read with us (or even to sit and pretend to read one by himself). And as for well-adjusted, Lyn and Jaden explored the neighborhood together, from the library to music classes, to parks to play spaces, and Jaden developed a network of friends because of Lyn's great efforts. In addition to being a great caretaker, Lyn is also a great employee. She is communicative and let us know when she had ideas about how best to care for Jaden, but also took instruction very well. She is very flexible, and was willing to babysit for us on evenings where we had work obligations, or even when we wanted to go out for dinner ourselves. In sum, I very strongly recommend Lyn for a nanny position. I am happy to discuss any of the above or to answer any questions.

Mary is a kind, gentle and very patient person. She takes direction very well and is very attentive and thorough. There was never a moment I worried when my children were in her care. She sends near constant updates and photos of the kids so that I feel that I am connected to them while I am at work. Mary is very patient especially when our kids are acting out or throwing a fit, she never loses her cool. She is very attentive to the children, always thinking of their well-being and nutrition. We were very lucky to have had her work with us as long as she has.

I write in support of Lyn Rogers's application for a Nanny position. Lyn is an incredibly qualified, professional, and caring woman, and our little Jaden thrived enormously under her care. Lyn's strength as an employee and caretake, in my view, from her confidence. She acts confidently and with good judgment, and I trust her always to put my child 's best interests at heart. Lyn is firm but kind as a disciplinarian, and she sets goals and accomplishes them. Lyn also has good values. I know that each child has his or her own personality, but there is no denying that our son Jaden is friendly, smart, and well-adjusted to the world because of Lyn. As for friendly, she spent a good amount of time ensuring that Jaden had fun things to do with other children and was very loving with him, and he loved her back. As for smart, Jaden favorite thing, because of Lyn, is to pick up a book and read with us (or even to sit and pretend to read one by himself). And as for well-adjusted, Lyn and Jaden explored the neighborhood together, from the library to music classes, to parks to play spaces, and Jaden developed a network of friends because of Lyn's great efforts. In addition to being a great caretaker, Lyn is also a great employee. She is communicative and let us know when she had ideas about how best to care for Jaden, but also took instruction very well. She is very flexible, and was willing to babysit for us on evenings where we had work obligations, or even when we wanted to go out for dinner ourselves. In sum, I very strongly recommend Lyn for a nanny position. I am happy to discuss any of the above or to answer any questions.

Hello friends! I am writing to help our dear nanny of the past 8 years find a new post in the NYC area starting this Fall. Zoila is an extension of our family, and we love her dearly. She was with our son since he was born and brought nothing but pure love, tenderness and undivided care throughout these years to him and our family. She not only watches our son but also cleans the house spotlessly, cooks and is always loyal, giving, protective and very reliable. Her language is Spanish with a little bit of understanding if English. If you know of anyone looking for a great nanny, please reach out. We would be happy to introduce her to you and tell you about how amazing, dedicated and a pure joy she is. We recommend her fully and would like to be able to extend this opportunity to the next loving family out there. Thank you!
