Experienced full or part time nanny available starting July 1 Our part time nanny Pony is becoming available on a full time or part time basis on July 1. Pony is a wonderful nanny who has been taking care of our daughters, 3 and 6 on a full time basis until my daughters have started school last year. Currently, she handles some of the after school hours throughout the week, and full day Fridays, when she helps me with the kids laundry and weekly food prep. She is a ray of sunshine from the moment she enters our home in the morning, until it’s time to part for the day. When I come home after work, the girls are fed and happily playing, the kitchen is spotless, and all the toys neatly stacked away. My daughters adore her, and often ask me throughout the weekend how many more days until their Pony is back. She is energetic, flexible, neat and a great cook. We are a vegetarian family, and she has not only adopted my go to recipes, but has quickly become masterful in making them, aside of her own repertoire of yummy dishes my children love to eat. She makes sure the kids eat a healthy diet, are safe and engaged. She has bountiful energy, and loves taking the girls to their activities, classes, or the playground. Pony arranges the girls play dates and is friendly with the babysitters from my daughters’ schools, the building and the neighborhood, so that my girls never lack a friend to play with. Her current full time family is moving to Long Island, and will not be needing her starting July 1. Pony is interested in both full time and part time positions, and she can take care both of a single child, siblings or twins. She is energetic and flexible with her schedule. Pony’s phone number is 347-806-8309. If you would like to speak to me, my contact is 917-294-1256. Viktorija

Parent Reference
Juana is an upbeat, nurturing nanny that began with us almost 6 years ago when my daughters were 18 months and 3 years old. We have since had another baby and Juana cared for him also. She has two daughters of her own in college (although she only just turned 40) and she understands that the job includes the children's environment too. She is willing to cook, clean, and do laundry. Even though not requested, she frequently ironed the children's clothes. Juana was very comfortable with all three kids and took them to classes and the playground together, as well as juggling dinner and bath time with all three. She knows the Upper West Side well, and has lived in manhattan for 18 years so she could easily adapt to any neighborhood. Juana is warm and loving with our children, attending their baptisms and christening services and bringing them thoughtful birthday presents. Juana occasionally stayed overnight for us to be able to take short trips. She has a great attitude and will be a huge support to any family. Because of changes in my husband's job, we now need a nanny who is willing to travel internationally with us for long trips. You are welcome to call or text Juana directly: 6463190650 Or myself if you have any questions: 6465745413 [email protected]

Kay is a truly extraordinary human being and is much more than a nanny. She spent 7 years with my family raising my daughters. It is thanks to her that my girls have become kind, well-mannered, confident children. Kay has an amazing intuition about children and their needs. In addition to the typical nanny duties (arranging play dates, taking care of all children's needs including feeding, etc....), Kay helped me by spotting any potential health issues as well as actively assisting in resolving them. She helped calm down my daughters when they got shots or had a scrape at the playground. She taught them right from wrong when they had a conflict at school or a fight between the two of them. Kay always went beyond the call of duty because of her genuine love for my children. In turn, I always felt like I could count on Kay and never worried about my kids while apart from them. My confidence and trust in Kay is so strong, that I was able to stop checking in during work hours. I never worried when my kids were with Kay. I came home to a spotless house with happy children. I now recognize how truly special this is as a working parent. Anyone that hires Kay will be extremely lucky!

Hillary has worked with us over the past 11 years as our children’s nanny, helping to raise our son (now 11) and daughter (now 8). She is an extraordinary professional—hard working, committed, incredibly honest, and trustworthy. Raising children is her calling and gift, and she takes her work very seriously. Hillary has a luminous spirit. She is without peer. We feel so lucky to have worked with Hillary over the past 11 years—and will be forever grateful for all the love, care, and compassion she put into caring for our children. I know that the two other families whose children she helped raised over the past twenty-five years feel the same way. Perhaps the greatest tribute to Hillary’s talents and character are the relationships she’s maintained with all of these families over the decades—holding a place of honor at the children’s Bar Mitzvahs, graduations and now weddings. With Hillary, it’s a bond that lasts a lifetime. Any family would be lucky to have the chance to work with her; she is a one-of-kind and one-in-a-million nanny.

Sannette is absolutely amazing. As a first-time mother and a working mother on top of that, I was very nervous with the process of leaving my son to be cared for by a nanny. However as soon as we met Sannette, my husband and I were quickly drawn to her calm demeanor and warm heart. She is extremely intelligent, having completed training as a nurse, and has worked with children with extreme disabilities. She has a 10 year old son and told my husband and I "I will take care of your son like my own child." Our son is absolutely in love with Sannette, she has been instrumental in helping with his developmental milestones, and she has become a part of our family. She frequently takes him to NYPL story time, story time at the Met, and will befriend other nannies to help with my child's socialization ("play dates"). I would recommend her without hesitation (she has been a nanny for our son from 5 months until 9 months); unfortunately we are moving, but I am determined to help Sannette find a great family to nanny for!

We are so lucky to have had Nalini as our son's nanny for a little over a year (our son is 15 months). While we always thought she would be with us forever, we are moving out of NYC for a job opportunity and want to make sure she is in good hands as she has been instrumental in our son's development. Nalini has close to 30 years of experience being a nanny and it shows. As much preparation and reading we have done to stay ahead of our son's developmental, Nalini has always been one step ahead of the game. Our son is a very loving, sweet and socially intelligent toddler and that is largely due to Nalini's careful attention and hard work. When our son is awake she is 100% dedicated to him, never distracted by her phone, and constantly talking or lovingly singing to him. When he is asleep she not only works tirelessly to make him food and do his laundry but she also takes such great care of us by doing our laundry and keeping things spotless. She is incredibly reliable, safe, always on time, and a joy to have in our family. We recommend Nalini without any reservations and we know you will find her to be as amazing as we do. Please feel free to call us or contact her directly.

Parent Reference
Elizabeth is actually a baby nurse (not a nanny), but I wanted to post here in the event that anyone is looking for a baby nurse. We hired her with our first child (now four) as our baby nurse and then converted her to our full-time, live-in nanny. She stayed with us through the birth of our second child (now two) and moved from NYC to TX with us. She wants to return to NYC and to being a baby nurse. She has many years of experience as a baby nurse (both singles and multiples) and came to us very highly recommended. She is unbelievably organized and had both of our newborns sleeping through the night within three months (she is a firm believer in schedules for newborns). To this day, both of our children are very sound sleepers and I believe it is all thanks to Elizabeth and her schedule. She made homemade baby food from scratch for both of our kids (sourcing organic ingredients from the local farmers' market) and she is the only reason my older child ever finishes a meal (Elizabeth is unbelievably patient at mealtime...both with newborns and older children!). Elizabeth has been a wonderful part of our family for four years and if anyone is expecting a baby and looking for a baby nurse, I highly recommend her.

Liza is like family to our little boy. His face lights up each morning when she walks in the door and the moment we met her – things just felt right. When we spoke with her references, they all adored her, which sealed the deal for us. She’s incredibly warm, loving, and has such a sweet way with him, frankly I’ll find myself peeking over at them to get some tips because she just has a natural way with kids that is powerful. She has been with us since he was 3 ½ months old (now 17 months), and the hardest part about moving out of the area has been knowing how much my son will miss her. She gives him her full attention, takes him to the park, to the library for story time, and constantly reads and sings to him. We have peace of mind when we go to work as we know our son is with someone who truly loves and cares for him, who we trust completely. We are sad that our move won’t allow us to keep her, but hope that our loss will be another’s gain. Available mid-late August.

Kathy is an extremely experienced and trustworthy caregiver who emanates calm and has forged a wonderfully close relationship with my children. She natures them, keeps them honest and we have been immensely fortunate as she has been part of their growth from babies to confident, independent and kind little people. Kathy has been with our family since my daughter was 2 months old. Eight years later as my children (boy and girl) now prepare to enter 4th grade and kindergarten it is time we pay it forward to a new family. Over the years, she has been very flexible as our schedules have evolved, allowed us to have time to get away as a couple and also joined us on family vacations. She is in close touch with all the families she has been part of in her career as a caregiver. She would prefer an arrangement working 4 days a week and with a new baby, but is flexible.

Our nanny from when we lived in the city is looking for a new family to work with as her last family's needs have changed. Ruth was our nanny from when my son was 12 weeks old until he was 2.5. Ruth came to us and quickly became part of our family. Before moving to the United States Ruth was a teacher, and played a major role in our son's development. She was always reading and singing with him. Our son is the most polite kid, and I have Ruth to thank for that. Ruth made plenty of friends for our son, and they were always busy with play dates. She was active, spending hours at the park and made sure they were never just sitting around int e apartment. Our son was so happy when Ruth came every morning and sad to say good-bye at the end of the day. Ruth was always early to our apartment. I never had to worry whether or not our son was sake when he was with Ruth. Anyone would be lucky to have her. Ideally she's looking for a newborn to 1 year old. Messaeg me for Ruth's number.

Our incredible nanny of almost six years is looking for a full-time position. I cannot say enough about her! We met her when our first daughter was just a few weeks old and she helped quell all my new mother fears once I returned to work fulltime. She is an incredibly warm, gentle, caring, and most of all extremely loving with our two girls. She is very knowledgeable about baby and toddler development and was so helpful with each milestone (eating solids, weaning, napping/sleep, potty-training, etc.) She has tons of energy—she is NOT the nanny that will sit on the bench and watch the kids play. She’s always right there. She’s social and met other caretakers/parents in our neighborhood and often set up playdates. It was not uncommon for other parents in the neighborhood to stop us to say that we were lucky to have found such a wonderful caretaker. It is very reassuring to know that Kavita is a trained EMT and knows CPR. She is an excellent communicator and has worked in the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens area for many years and knows the neighborhood well. She's still very important to us and our girls. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions from anyone lucky enough to have Kavita enter their family's life...

I would be happy to discuss all of Sharon’s strong points with anyone interested in hiring her. A few key words that might help paint a clearer picture of her are: reliable, punctual, effective communicator, enthusiastic, engaging, models positive and appropriate social behavior, provides a safe, happy and secure environment for learning and playing, caring, understanding, and easy to get along with. As a single mom, I’ve been truly blessed to have Sharon on board all these years. Being able to go to work every day and have peace of mind, knowing my son was being loved and cared for has been a gift, and I’m excited to be able to share this gift with another deserving family now.

Our son's loving nanny, Gloria, has full day availability on Tuesday and Thursday starting July 2, 2019 and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for childcare. Gloria has been taking care of our son part time for nearly two years, since he was about three months old. We are transitioning him into a group daycare mainly because he's ready for a social environment day-to-day, but Gloria has been a wonderful addition to his life and we feel extremely lucky to have found her. She is experienced, responsible, loving and fun. Some details: - She is a caregiving pro. She is highly attentive to feeding schedules, nap schedules, changes in development and all the rest. She is great at taking information from us and working with direction we give her as we try to maintain a routine among different caregivers. She is also very observant and will share with us anything useful she observes throughout the day. She's very experienced with babies and toddlers and has lots of useful knowledge and insight. - She's incredibly warm and loving with our son. He lights up when she walks in the room, and she is always bubbly and sweet with him. They've formed a very loving bond and we feel very lucky to leave our son with someone who clearly cares about him very much. - She's fun and energetic. They are out of the house pretty much all day when she's here. She takes him to the park, playgrounds, the library, singalongs, music class, etc. When they're home she's constantly engaging him and playing with him. - She is totally reliable. She hasn't missed a day of work, she is reliably available for odd nights and weekends, and she is flexible when we need her to be. - She's super easy to work with. We're able to communicate well back and forth and she's been a pro since day one. She has over 15 years of baby / nanny experience (including some several-year-long relationships), and she came extremely highly recommended to us. Please feel free to reach out to me or directly to her.

I am seeking a new family for our loving, responsible babysitter Yvette. Yvette has worked with our family for the past 12 years, since my son was born. Yvette is part of our family now – she takes her work seriously, and her priority is ensuring the wellbeing of our children. In addition to our son, she cares for our daughter who is 9. It was a hard decision, but as our kids are older it’s time to find her a new family. She is extremely reliable (always on time, rarely if ever out sick) and is professional (not a big phone talker at all). Yvette also takes initiative to organize playdates to ensure our kids are involved in the neighborhood and have appropriate developmental experiences. From day one, I felt extremely comfortable leaving my children with Yvette. I remember when we first interviewed babysitters way back when, she was the only that asked to hold my son. She truly loves kids. She is energetic, and always ensure that our kids have a good balance of park/outdoor time and school work time. Yvette would be really well suited for a family with a newborn as she used to be a baby nurse. I found her experience and sage advice very useful in the hectic, early days of motherhood. She is looking for a family who would need a sitter for the longer term and is interested in opportunities that are for a year or more. In addition to caring for our children, she does their laundry.

Fatima is a superstar nanny who helped raise our two children for five years, starting when my son was just six months old. She was truly a third parent to the kids, always concerned for their well-being and constantly talking, singing, reading, and playing with them. She taught them good manners, good eating habits, and how to nap on a schedule. When we came home from work, they would often be freshly bathed, brushed, dressed in their pajamas and sweetly reading a book with her on the sofa. Fatima is trilingual and college educated, and has more than 15 years of experience as a nanny, and can provide multiple references.

Wonderful Do-It All Nanny Available! We are moving out of state and must say goodbye to our incredible caregiver. Seeta is safety-oriented, reliable, emotionally intelligent, energetic, and respectful. I trust her implicitly and feel so lucky our children have had her in their lives. Seeta has been caring for our two children for almost four years, and she has adapted beautifully as the children have grown from infant and toddler to preschooler and grader schooler. Today Seeta manages our children's days with fun and efficiency -- from school drop offs and pick-ups, to bath time, preparing and serving dinner, cleaning up after the children, organizing play dates, running the occasional errand, and playtime. I enjoy having her in our home, and will miss her "can-do" attitude and friendly face. Please contact her directly: 347-528-5199.

Olivia McKenzie worked for us as a live-in caretaker for our son for 3 years. Our son is about to start attending school full time so we are helping her find a new family to care for starting this summer. I do not hesitate to say that Ms. McKenzie is a fantastic nanny.

We can’t think of a better nanny for our son than Ms. McKenzie. Over the past two years she has become a family friend and we would always welcome her back into our home.

We are so lucky to have had Nalini as our son's nanny for a little over a year (our son is 15 months). While we always thought she would be with us forever, we are moving out of NYC for a job opportunity and want to make sure she is in good hands as she has been instrumental in our son's development. Nalini has close to 30 years of experience being a nanny and it shows. As much preparation and reading we have done to stay ahead of our son's developmental, Nalini has always been one step ahead of the game. Our son is a very loving, sweet and socially intelligent toddler and that is largely due to Nalini's careful attention and hard work. When our son is awake she is 100% dedicated to him, never distracted by her phone, and constantly talking or lovingly singing to him. When he is asleep she not only works tirelessly to make him food and do his laundry but she also takes such great care of us by doing our laundry and keeping things spotless. She is incredibly reliable, safe, always on time, and a joy to have in our family. We recommend Nalini without any reservations and we know you will find her to be as amazing as we do. Please feel free to call us or contact her directly.

Our family needs are changing & unfortunately (for us), we need to let Coleen move on to another family. She has been with us for the last few months & has been fantastic from day one! She has 28 years of experience & came highly recommended from the previous families she worked for. She is loving & caring, doesn’t think twice to get on the floor & play with my daughter. Coleen talks to my daughter all the time, reading books, interacting with her - trying to get her to hit all of those milestones! My daughter loves songs & Coleen is often singing to her, which calms her down and makes naptime a breeze! Aside from keeping my baby safe and happy, she is always on time & extremely reliable. She loves to keep active, so she would take my daughter out multiple times a day (rain or shine) to go do activities, make friends or go to classes. She takes care of all of her needs & also keeps the apartment extra clean & tidy! Beyond that she is professional, and will always defer to you as being the parent. She has such a gift with babies -- she is ideally looking for a family who has a young baby and is returning to work. Any family would be lucky to have her! Please reach out to her directly at (347)345-6487 if you are interested, or message/email me!

She has worked with us through the birth of our daughter, now 7, job changes for both my husband and me, and a serious family illness. She sets up play dates for our kids, shuttles them between activities in all weather, prepares their lunches for school, prepares dinner for them, does the laundry and light housekeeping, and in general keeps us all on schedule and on top of things. Most importantly, she ensures that our children are safe and happy, and she loves them like family. Logistically, Ana is a U.S. citizen and lives in Brooklyn. She is a native Spanish speaker but completely fluent in English. She has two adult children. She is literally never, ever late for work. Any family would be lucky to get Ana -- I am so grateful that we found her when our son was a newborn. We are giving Ana up because we are leaving the city. We will happily keep her through August but would let her leave us earlier for the right job.

Glenis Maximin has been a part of our family for nearly nine years, since our oldest daughter was four months old (we have two other daughters now 6 and 4). From the moment we met her – as nervous, first-time parents – Glenis immediately put as at ease with her 25+ years of experience but also with her calm and warm demeanor. She taught us how to care for and raise our older daughter, and she guided our girls through many milestones, from solid foods to toilet training to the first day of kindergarten. We trust Glenis implicitly. We have also never once worried about our children while they are in her care. We know Glenis will keep them safe and she loves them with all her heart. Glenis has been a terrific employee. She is always on time and has never missed work unexpectedly. Glenis works full time for us. She is extraordinarily flexible with her time, and with advance notice she can usually stay late on a night that we need her. She does the girls’ laundry and often shops and cooks for them, and she is always thinking about and anticipating things that they need. Glenis always makes it a point to get to know all of the other children in my daughters’ classes. She proactively sets up play dates for our girls at home or in parks, zoos or playgrounds. We frequently come home to find her cuddled on a chair reading with our girls. She can play with toys on the floor with our little one for hours on end, never tiring. Our daughters absolutely adore her. We are so sad to part with Glenis, but we are moving out of the city. We know she will make a fantastic addition to a new family. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Glenis; please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or require more information.

Our daughter will be going to school full time, so our childcare needs are changing. We’re hoping to find a new family for our wonderful nanny, LouAnn. She has been with us since our daughter was 3 months old; she came to us after working for another family for five years. As first-time parents, we were lucky to be able to draw on LouAnn's years of experience with children. She was a great source of support and guidance through all of the milestones and with my return from work. It's hard to distill all of LouAnn's qualifications in a few paragraphs, but here are a few thoughts: *She's an excellent (and very willing) cook. Truth be told, for the last three years our daughter has eaten better than we do. LouAnn loves to cook for her, and she's been making her homemade meals since she started solid food. (She's also great at sneaking vegetables into things like pasta sauce and meatballs.) *She respects our parenting values, beliefs and routines. While LouAnn has good judgment and knew way more about kids than my husband and I did when we hired her, she has always been very respectful of the decisions we make for Ruby—from sleeping and eating routines to discipline. *She has a network of babysitter friends in the Brooklyn area. She regularly arranges playdates for our daughter from the time she was a baby. She's made some of his best friends through these playdates. *She's fun, engaging, and ready to play. LouAnn has no problem getting down on the floor and playing. LouAnn can be reached on her cell at 347-785-6561. I would be happy to answer any and all questions about our family's time with LouAnn. You can reach me (Katie) at 423-596-9498 or [email protected] Her former family is also more than happy to chat. She was with the Holgrems for five years - [email protected] Thanks!

Jessie has been a lifesaver for us! She joined our family when my second son was a brand newborn, at a time when my older son was entering an extremely difficult phase of sleeplessness and behavioral issues. Jessie handled the combination of a newborn and a willful, chronically exhausted/crazed 2.5-year-old with aplomb, and helped us work to get our older son on a sleep schedule and to generally even him out. She remained calm, unflappable, and understanding even during the toughest days, armed with a positive attitude and a seemingly endless well of patience. The kids are now 4 years old and 18 months old, respectively, and they both adore Jessie. She takes them all over the city on adventures, which we think is fantastic for two intrepid boys. Sadly, we are moving to Westchester and Jessie cannot come with us (and we have all shed many tears about it), so we are hoping to find her an awesome, loving family. Jessie does especially well balancing the schedules and demands of more than one child, and one of the families she worked with before us had twins, so she is excellent with multiples as well. We are sad to leave her, but you'd be lucky to have her.

Our boys will be starting pre-K full time in September and we no longer need full time help. If we could, we would keep her forever, we are very sad to have her leave! She is truly part of our family and boys adore her! She is an amazing nanny and a very kind person, warm, caring, patient, and organized. She helped us from the early days with boys, she is very engaged, organized, sets up playdates, etc. She cooks for them, healthy meals. She took them to classes and now to part-time nursery that they are attending. She is really an amazing nanny and very reliable. She also helped me very much in the process as the twins were growing up, through each stage of food, activities, etc. In short, she is the best! She has a long experience working with twin families, and in fact we found Andrea through Manhattan Twins Club through another twin family. She is available end of August, however we may have some flexibility. Andrea is looking for a full time position.

I enthusiastically recommend Lorna Lambert as a babysitter/nanny for young children. She took care of our boy-girl twins from when they were a few months old until they were nearly six. We would happily have had her take care of them for years after that, but they were heading off to school and Lorna wanted a full-time job. Lorna was reliable, punctual—she usually showed up at least fifteen minutes early--and extremely trustworthy. I don’t think she ever took a sick day, and the children were always exactly where they were supposed to be. Much more important, she was generous and loving (she still visits our children, who are now twelve, and delights in hearing how they’re doing), highly focused on each of their individual character and quirks, and a calm teacher of how they should react in a range of circumstances, everything from being tired to facing a bully on the playground. She instilled good behavior in them by modeling it and expecting it. In many ways she showed my husband and me how to be good parents. I have no hesitations in giving Lorna my highest recommendation, and I would be happy to answer any questions about her that you might have.

I simply cannot say enough about Beatriz and what she has meant to our family. Beatriz began working with our family a little over one year ago, when our original nanny of six years left to start her own family. I remember being worried that our original nanny would be impossible to replace, but Beatriz far exceeded all of our expectations. We are moving out of state in mid-July, which is the only reason we are letting Beatriz go. Saying goodbye to her will undoubtedly be one of the most difficult parts of our move. Beatriz is truly excellent at all parts of her job; she’s an amazing caregiver, educator, and playmate. Her key responsibilities have included playing/interacting with my three children (7-year old, 4-year old, and 1-year old), taking them to classes, play dates, the playground, etc., preparing their meals, and bathing them. She has fostered wonderful friendships for my children and is exceedingly well-liked by the other parents and caregivers. She also has helped with household chores like dishes and laundry, tidying up, and will run errands when we need something, often without being asked. However, Beatriz has contributed so much more and has essentially been a “partner in parenting” this past year. She has helped my youngest with each of his developmental milestones, and has integrated seamlessly into my older two children’s busy school and social lives. She is tremendously loving and patient, traits which have proven invaluable in juggling our children’s high-energy personalities. She easily elicits behavior from my children that I seldom achieve (cleaning up, finishing dinner, saying please, etc.) and makes caring for them look totally easy (it still is not for me!). My children are exceedingly happy, well-mannered, and well-socialized, thanks to Beatriz, and their faces light up in the morning when she arrives. I fully trust her judgment in taking care of them. Furthermore, Beatriz is extremely reliable – always arriving on time (if not early) and rarely taking vacation or a sick day. I highly recommend Beatriz for a nanny position. I know that whatever family is lucky enough to have her will be thrilled with her dedication, judgment, and warmth. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

I am writing this letter to recommend Betania Mendez for a nanny position. Betania has worked with my family for one and a half years, helping to care for my 2 year old daughter and now for my 9 week old baby boy as well and I would certainly recommend her work. Owing to her excepcional work ethics and child care talents, she will become an asset to your family. Betania is kind, warm, energetic, patient, responsible and SO loving and sweet. My daughter has some development delay that affects her mobility and communication skills and Betania has always demonstrated tremendous responsibility in taking care of her. She has been an active part during my daughter's therapies and has also learned how to effectively interact with her and make sure that she always feels happy and safe. Ultimately, Betania is an excellent nanny because she is so trustworthy. She is always on-time and held to high responsibility. I wish we could keep her but unfortunately we are moving abroad. My daughter loves her and we are very sad to let her go. I wish her best of luck for her future employment. Please, do not hesitate to contact me at (917) 854-5597 if you need more information regarding her abilities.

We have been so lucky to have Terry in our lives, and strongly believe that your whole family will be in incredible hands with Terry in your home. To name just a few of Terry's qualities: Terry is so flexible and reliable. A very hectic household (we have 2 boys, 14 months apart, work schedules constantly changing; moving apartments, etc.) doesn't phase her. She is also always on time and she is never sick even when the whole house has the flu. She is also so sweet, happy and very capable. She does everything related to the kids with a calm and ease of a very experienced mom and nanny. She really has a special touch - particularly with babies - and has done it all related to the kids - each baby phase, play dates, classes, park/playground etc. She cares for our children as if they are her own (but doesn’t overstep and lets us take the lead when we want and follows everything we ask). She is also a pleasure to have in our home. Finally, Terry works just so so so hard. She is never not doing something. She has an impressive amount of energy. This energy means that, over the years, she has picked up more and more responsibilities, including light housekeeping and cooking (she is an outstanding cook) for the whole family. I am happy to speak over the phone and send you a detailed reference to anyone really interested.

With over 20 years of experience (newborns, twins, toddlers, and beyond), Maureen came to us when our first child was just 6 weeks old. Her warmth and loving ways were immediately felt and her never ending knowledge was just what this then first-time mom needed. When our second child was born just 21 months later, she didn’t skip a beat, caring for two under two with utter ease. 4.5 years later and she has been key to helping us through every milestone (and hiccup). She truly has been our nanny in shining armor. My husband articulated the essence of Maureen as such: “Her child wellness instinct, respectfulness, beauty with words, gracious patience, and the beauty of her care is something that only can come from good experience and good character.” I could go on and on about her wonderful qualities, but in particular she is beyond punctual, has an incredible amount of energy, enthusiastically organizes play dates, finds the best classes for our kids to attend, is always on top of kid laundry, and never minds going out of the way to pick up household things here and there. Plus, she’s simply the sweetest, most loving woman. Maureen is interested in finding a family that needs 4-5 days a week (40-50 hours) and can start in September.

Sita is a rare gem of a nanny! Her commitment, professionalism, and loving energy was everything we wanted in a caregiver. No joke we interviewed and hired her the same day, we just knew she was the right person for us. I also wish I had found her for my baby nurse, but did not meet her until I was looking for a nanny. As both my husband and I have very busy schedules, Sita was always there to help support us as a family. She would show up early and stay late, always being very flexible with us. Even if I had a meeting run late at work she would stay late with out any question. When I got home, everything was set up for me to take over and my daughter would be laughing and smiling. She has even offered to help out on the weekends so we could have date night. When she first started working for us our daughter was struggling with sleep and she got her on a routine & helped her learn how to sleep more independently, which made our lives so much easier. She is so interested in her development, would play with her for hours with full engagement (not looking at her cell phone like so many nannies do these days). She has also taught me so much as a first time mom on the basics of caring for a newborn. She goes above and beyond with caring and loving our daughter and making our home feel calm and I know I will miss having her with us every day. This week I found out that we will be moving to CA next year and because of that I have decided to take the rest of the year off and be a full time mom to our daughter. Starting in July, I will only need a part time nanny. Sita has offered to stay with us 20 hours a week, but she still needs more work since she was doing 40+. She would be interested in baby night nursing, part time nanny work, and full time potentially.

Shanta has been our nanny for five years, starting in June 2014, when our oldest son was 3 months old. We now have two sons, aged 4 (Francis) and 5 (Jack). Both boys will be in school full-time in the fall, so we won’t need Shanta’s services any more. Shanta is a member of the family now and we’re incredibly sad that she’s leaving us. Shanta came at the recommendation of my sister’s nanny and has been an extraordinarily loyal and dependable employee. She commutes over one hour each way and even with train troubles is on time every day. She has worked with us to help with extra coverage when we need it, including staying late for us on short notice, babysitting on weekends and even staying overnight with the boys when my wife, Kim, and I traveled for weekend vacations. Shanta has four sons of her own and has been a nanny/baby nurse for almost 17 years, and we benefited greatly from her experience. We have had great communication and she understands what we need, as parents, so that we’re comfortable leaving our children for the day. The best part about Shanta is that my wife and I have never had any concern as to what the boys were up to when they were with her. She has done all the practical things – getting them dressed, fed, napped, entertained – in addition to providing a warm and safe environment. The boys are active and rambunctious and she makes sure that they’re outside and active so that they’ve spent as much energy as possible by the time we get home from work. And, of course, most importantly, the boys love Shanta. She spoils them and loves them and frankly, they’ll be devastated when she leaves. My wife Kim and I enthusiastically recommend Shanta without reservation and we are happy to answer any questions any prospective employee may have about her.

Rosie has been a fantastic caregiver to our three year old son. She is loving, trustworthy, honest, and compassionate, able to handle difficult situations without stress or drama. She has helped our son grow and develop, from reading books with him, singing songs, dancing, counting, and helping him to learn about nutrition and proper habits. She cooks for him, tidies up, and does his laundry. She picks him up from school and takes him to various activities. She’s proactive about playdates, and has helped him grow a wonderful network of friends. When he has acted out as three year olds do, she’s always handled it with the appropriate level of discipline and empathy, and has helped him learn to better understand and play with his friends and companions. Our son has truly bonded with her, and that has meant so much to us. Rosie’s been flexible, always working with us as our schedules change, and willing to step us as needed. We’re both working parents, and it’s meant so much to know Rosie’s there to provide loving care for our son. We’ve heard glowing comments from friends, teachers, and other caregivers who have observed Rosie with our son, and it’s been abundantly clear that she truly cares for him. We are moving away and unfortunately Rosie will not be able to move with us, but we could not recommend her more highly.

Our nanny of almost 4 years will be available part-time starting this fall, when our kid starts school. She is available to do mornings till around 2 pm (then she will be picking our daughter up from school), or she can do full days for families who don’t mind overlapping with us from 3-5:30. We can work out the logistics. She had decades of experience and is amazing with children of all ages, and most importantly, she’s super energetic and 100% engaged at all times and genuinely cares for the child like her own. Can’t tell you how many times random parents I’ve never met have come up to me to tell me how wonderful our nanny is. Ideally you live in Williamsburg or Greenpoint, but a short distance from the Bedford L stop can also work.

Our family truly hit the jackpot the day we hired Pat to be our sons' nanny. For the past 5 years, we have never had to worry about our boys while my husband and I worked. Pat is the most loving, kind, responsible, trustworthy, and cheerful presence. She made herself a part of our family. She cares for my boys as if they were her own, and they love her for it. My sons were 4 years old and 5 months old when we hired her - now that my little one is headed to kindergarten, we will be moving to only an afterschool babysitter, and we are heartbroken to lose her - though she will always be part of our family. Pat always arrives on time, with a smile and a hug for the boys. She is always completely focused on them and playing with them - I never have to worry about their safety or that they are being ignored. She is extremely friendly and social with everyone in our building, school, and neighborhood (Upper East Side), and befriends other families and sets up playdates. She keeps our apartment in order, does everyone\'s laundry, and cooks dinner. She makes sure my older son gets his homework done and plays games and reads books with my younger son. She\'s amazingly flexible, always willing to stay late or come early if we need her to. She\'s also been flexible over the years in how she cares for our boys - making sure she changed how she cared for them as they grew. I can\'t count the number of times strangers have stopped me in the street to tell me how amazing our nanny is, and my boys still run down the hall to give her hugs when she arrives. Any family would be lucky to have her. I\'m happy to provide any more information or you can contact Pat directly at [email protected]

I have known Esther since my eldest child was born 7 years ago, when she nannied for a family we knew. That family relocated, at exactly the time I needed help with my second child, and I jumped at the opportunity to employ Esther. She has been with us for 2 years. Now that my youngest is about to start school full-time, Esther is looking for a new family. In addition to being kind, loving, reliable, loyal, discreet, completely trustworthy and flexible, Esther is patient, patient, patient and patient, with children and parents alike. She has got me out of more pickles than I care to remember! If you're the type to occasionally forget to pick up a child from school, or cook dinner for your family , Esther is the nanny for you. Esther is flexible with her time: she would be happy to do occasional weekend and evening work. She is looking for a full-time position, and can work more than 40 hours/week if required. Her ideal scenario would be to start with a newborn whose parents have plans to grow their family. I've always said to Esther that for me it is her or nobody. I'm sure you will come to think the same if Esther becomes your family nanny.

Stephanie is young and energetic which is necessary for caring for my very active kids. She is everything you would want in someone caring for your child - she is loving and sweet, she reads, sings, and plays with the kids, takes them to activities and to the park, and coordinates play dates for my older child. She is also very helpful around the house - she helps with laundry, does light cleaning, and helps with local errands. Any family would be lucky to have Stephanie! We will miss her so much when we move out of state this summer.

The thing we like most about Alina is that she truly cares for our child and plays with her on her level even if that means sitting on the floor and playing games.

NANNY AVAILABLE: Our experienced and fun nanny is available full-time Hi families, We are posting about our nanny's availability to find her a new family or nanny share, full-time and on the books. We have moved out of the city, and the other family in our nanny share planned from the onset to try daycare after a year, so Donna has become available. Donna was with our nanny share for the past year and cared for our two babies since they were ~5mo. She is experienced with nanny shares, caring for twins as well as single babies and balancing the needs and styles of two families with graciousness and flexibility; she did a nanny share before ours too. Donna is punctual and reliable (has always been on time and typically arrives early, and flexible to help with date nights and early mornings). She's capable, fun, energetic yet easygoing, friendly and sociable. She has cared for our babies from the early days of nap training, to starting solids, and now to the wilder days of toddlers zipping around the house, and she's done it all with a great attitude. The babies have a lot of fun with her. Donna has been instrumental in keeping the babies on a schedule as they developed and their needs evolved. She enjoys bringing them out for playground time, classes, visits to the library or our building lounge to socialize with other children. She helped guide them through their milestones, learning words and habits, and she has kept us updated on their new developments and sends photos/videos of their day which we appreciate. Most of all, Donna loves our babies and we've had the assurance that they are in safe hands. We hope her next family is a good match for her and we would be happy to answer your questions. Note: Donna is looking to work with infants (she was also a baby nurse), as she's looking for a family she can grow with from babyhood to the toddler years. She's available to start as soon as the right opportunity comes along and is looking to be located in the Brooklyn Heights / Downtown Brooklyn / Cobble Hill / Dumbo / Lower Manhattan areas but is open to surrounding neighborhoods too. She's looking for a full-time position only and works *on* the books. For a nanny share, minimal stairs would be preferred given that the logistics of overseeing the safety of two babies, and a double stroller become difficult in a walk-up building. Please feel free to contact Donna directly at [email protected] Thanks, all!

Tammy has been a beloved part of our family for the past 3 1/2 years. She is unflappably calm and flexible, and was a steady and stable presence in our home. This last year she took care of my 9, 7, and 4 year olds as well as my 2 year old nephew (who she has cared for since he was 3 months). She was in tune with each child's needs and schedule, and created a warm and happy environment for all of them. Tammy is incredibly loving and wise. She has a magic touch with children -- she developed close and caring relationships with all 4 kids, and was able to comfort them when they were upset, set boundaries when they were tantrum-ing, and help them all interact together kindly and lovingly. Tammy was happy to play legos and games and do art projects and read books for hours at the appropriate developmental level for each kid. She was totally on top of everything -- all 4 kids' schedules; current food likes and dislikes; naptimes and bedtimes. We would have kept her forever except she moved to New Jersey and it's too long a trip to our home in Brooklyn. We miss her terribly and she regularly texts and FaceTimes with our kids. Tammy is a treasure!

Our family is relocating to Portland, OR and hoping to find the next family to work with our long time babysitter Pauline. Pauline has worked full time for our family for over 6 years, caring for our daughter Abigail, 6.5 years old and our son Colin, 2 years old. Pauline absolutely LOVES our kids and cares for them with dedication and joy. From infancy she was extremely proactive seeking out classes, playgroups and playdates so that our children have grown into wonderfully social and adaptable individuals. She is extremely knowledgeable in child development and began working with both our children from early ages to identify letters, numbers, colors and reads to them constantly. She helps our daughter Abigail with her homework and also manages to feed them both dinner and get through bath time – she is a pro. I could go on and on, we trust Pauline completely and have been extremely fortunate have her care for our children the past 6 years.

We are looking for a loving family for our nanny Sherry, who has been with us since our firstborn was six months old (he is now 6). Now that both kids will be in school full time, Sherry is looking for a full-time position, preferably with a newborn. Sherry is well-known around our neighborhood through her regular play dates and holiday parties, and is regularly found playing with our sons at playgrounds, classes, play dates, and/or school events. She is incredibly dedicated, responsible and trustworthy - she has rarely missed a day in over six years, and goes above and beyond when we needed extra help. She was instrumental in helping us get through difficult transitions, including changes in sleep schedules, eating solid food, and potty training. Sherry is independent and outgoing, searching out the best and most interesting classes and activities in New York, including museums, concerts, and story-times. We, in fact, met many of our good friends through Sherry. The best recommendation I can give is from my sons’ school principal, who told me that she rarely sees a nanny as engaged and dedicated as Sherry and that she is a “diamond in the rough”.

After seven years, it’s time we said goodbye to our most amazing nanny, Winsome. Winsome joined our family when my oldest son was three months old and has been the most nurturing, caring and supportive nanny to all three of my kids. It pains me to say goodbye, but with all three kids going to camp and full time school in September, it’s time she moved on. For those of you who know Winsome you’ve seen first hand what a kind loving person she is. She has always given my children her undivided attention whether it’s her patience when they were babies or her enthusiasm playing hide and seek as they grew older. She’s never on her phone and always up for a walk to the park, bubbles outside or just chilling out reading a book. She truly is amazing, especially with young children. Winsome doesn’t drive, but is willing to walk most places. She loves taking trips into town, going to the park and spending time at the library. I’m hoping we can find her something close by! Please PM me or feel free to call Winsome directly at 646-488-0279.

Alicia has been part of our family for the last 9 years! She started with us when my daughter was just 2 years old and my son was 7 months old. Before she worked for us she worked for my coworker who had 3 children under 5, but had to move out of state. Honestly, there is nothing she is incapable of. Alicia has an incredible amount of integrity, she is smart, hardworking, energetic and diligent — a true professional. As a working mom it was very comforting that doormen, school teachers and friends would all remark about how incredible she was with my children. When our kids were little she always kept them busy — reading with them, working on projects, or making playdates! As an added bonus, Alicia has a background in nutrition, which benefited immensely both my children and our entire family. Ideally, Alicia would love to find a summer job with young children, but is also open to a full time or weekend job. Feel free to contact Alicia directly 347-351-9633 and of course I am always happy to discuss further.

Vashni has cared for our children for almost 6 years, starting when our two children were 6 and 8. She has taken amazing care of our children, taking them to activities, feeding them dinner, and helping with homework. She is very energetic, calm, kind, loving, and an excellent communicator. They are now of the age where they can be more independent, and we no longer need a caregiver every day. We highly recommend her.

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

Part-time nanny available! My childcare needs have changed and I’m looking for another family to share my wonderful nanny of 2.5 years. She will be with me twice a week from 11am-4pm and I’m looking to fill up the rest of the week for her. She’s very intelligent, extremely loyal, hard-working and really enjoys her job. She truly loves my kids and would do anything for them. She has never been late in 2.5 years and has called in sick only once. Please send me a PM if you are interested and can offer her 20 hours or more per week.

I have decided to stay home with my son and unfortunately that means we have to give up our nanny. She has truly become a part of our family and this was by far the toughest part of my decision. She has over 8 years experience nannying in NYC and has worked for families with one and two children. She is wonderful with my son and has been integral in his development. She will be available for a new opportunity on June 17th. Not only does she take excellent care of our son, but also cleans while he is napping. Please let me know if you are interested or would like more information.

Clavia is a light who warms up every room she enters, and took away all the anxiety I was feeling as a mom to a then-newborn with a-tough-to-handle toddler. She was a dream night nurse to me, and she had a magic touch with both my infant and my toddler; and everything seemed nicer, cleaner, calmer, and more organized (including me and my kids) in her midst. She is professional through and through, and lovely to be around. My husband and I had a really hard time parting with her -- even when our infant son had outgrown the need for a night nurse, we still wanted her around for our own comfort! I could not recommend her more for any family that is looking for someone to love and care for their newborn, and to make their family life more peaceful in those hectic early days.

It is with a heavy heart that we recommend our fantastic caregiver, Marisela, who has been a treasure to our family for nearly 3 years. Marisela started when our son was 1 and she has cared for him for the past 3 years and more recently, our daughter who is almost 1. Marisela is a kind, loving, and warm person who always treats children with respect and puts their needs first. She has excellent judgment and is very attentive. Our two children adore her and we feel confident knowing that they are in excellent hands. We never worry when they are with her and trust her 100% - she takes them to the doctor and cares for them when they are sick, treating them as if they are her own. Marisela puts energy and thought into keeping our kids engaged and active – she organizes play dates, trips to museums, trips to the zoo and spends countless hours reading to them at the library. She is fluent in Spanish and English and has taught our kids Spanish (which is a giant bonus!). Marisela is reliable, trustworthy and loyal. Despite years of experience, she is very cooperative and willing to take direction (which I almost never have to give). Other parents often tell us how wonderful Marisela is our children and theirs. We are very sorry to lose Marisela but we are relocating and we know that she really loves working in Manhattan. Her next family will be very lucky to have her. She is hoping to find a full time position (40-45 hours a week) at the beginning of July and I would be happy to provide a reference or answer any questions. If you would like to contact Marisela directly you can do so at (917) 327-6325. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at (914) 391-5480.

Shereen has been with us since the day our granddaughter came home from the hospital. She travelled with us as we commuted between East Hampton and New York City and she was wonderful taking care of both our granddaughter and our daughter who is physically disabled. Shereen acted as a baby nurse and mother's helper as our daughter navigated caring for a newborn from a wheelchair and crutches. She helped my daughter with companionship, cooking, cleaning and laundry and took care of our granddaughter when her mommy wasn't able. Our granddaughter is now a one year old and Shereen has been a wonderful babysitter so mommy and grandparents can get some time off. We are now spending most of our time in East Hampton and Shereen prefers to stay in New York City. We would recommend her highly.

We hired Naomi Clarke right after we had our second child and she quickly won over our extremely spirited toddler son who was less than thrilled about having a new baby in the house. It was a chaotic time, and Naomi handled it like a true professional. She came highly recommended from a friend of a friend who only had the best things to say about her, as did all of her many references. Naomi has 20 years of experience and has taken several advanced infant and childcare courses to further her expertise and commitment to being a professional nanny. She knows all the best classes and activities, regularly scheduled play dates and has taken our son to the museum, library, zoo and more. He still talks about the first time he went on an NYC bus with Naomi! She is also very knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise and because of that, our son has developed healthy eating habits and was always on the move. Naomi would be an asset to any family. She truly loves what she does and takes an immense amount of pride in her work.

My fantastic nanny is looking for a new family to work with on Mondays and Tuesdays, because the other family we share her with is moving out of the city. I can’t say enough good things about her, and we really want to help her find another nice family to work with! Seeta has been really amazing with my 5.5 year old daughter and 2.5 year old son. She’s been with us for about 2 years. She is always on time and extremely reliable, playful with both of my kids, outgoing with other nannies/makes playdates all the time, and helps keep my apartment clean. She’s never on her phone and very energetic. Seeta has developed such a sweet bond with my kids, and both of them truly love her and are so excited to see her each week. My daughter recently had a wiggly tooth and had me face time her over the weekend to share her big news ?. I’m in and out of my apartment a lot so I hear and see how she interacts with my kids, and she’s really special and sweet with them. She is extremely responsible, flexible, smart, and came to us highly recommended as well. The other family we share her with has an 11-month-old and they are happy to discuss their experience with her as well. She has a lot of experience, and families who have worked with her in the past are still in touch with her and also available as references. If you are interested in meeting with Seeta or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or contact her at 347-247-7025. She’s really a gem...Thanks!

Janell is an incredibly caring, passionate and experienced nanny. We were so lucky to have her for our son‘s first year of life. She did everything she could to support his development and we could not trust her more. My husband and I are both doctors working long hours including night shifts and weekends and we never worried about anything at home. Janell made sure he was perfectly taken care of, his clothes were clean and neatly folded, his bottles, toys etc neat and clean so the little time we spend with our baby at home we could actually enjoy and not do any chores. She made sure he met all his milestones beforehand, in fact we just went to his 12 month visit and our pediatrician was impressed how healthy and far developed he is. He actually is at a stage of 15–18 month and we just celebrated his first birthday. And given our long hours, I will give her full credit for this. She is so passionate and dedicated and puts a lot of energy and commitment into her profession. I am specifically grateful for the healthy meals she cooks for him. She makes us shopping lists and prepares all his meals fresh with only organic ingredients. To this day our baby boy has not eaten anything processed, which I love. He was born 15th percentile for weight and he totally caught up to being on the 90th percentiles for height and weight at this time. Our son is so energetic and happy and never really fuzzes and I truly believe it’s because he gets enough sleep and is on a good schedule suitable for his age. As first time parents there is so much you don’t know about what’s best for your child’s development and I don’t have time or energy to read the recommended books or the endless material online, but thanks to Janell I don’t need to worry about it. She is always available if we have any questions or concerns and will share her incredible knowledge with us. For our future nanny I would always choose someone experienced for your own peace of mind. I honestly would never give her away, but we are moving to the West Coast soon and I am dreading the day we need to say goodbye. I will be forever grateful for her outstanding dedication towards our baby boy. She would consistently make sure everything was smooth and perfect. I wish her the kindest family for the future. We will miss her so dearly.

We are making our way to the NJ suburbs which would be too far for Silvia to travel. She is wonderful. Silvia has been with us for all of Luke’s six years on the planet. It is hard to imagine functioning without her. I will gladly gush further to folks who might be interested. A few short notes below: • Excellent judgement and integrity. I trust her with anything – beyond caring for Luke she is a ‘trusted advisor’ to me! • Very smart – thinks ahead, just gets it • Loving and warm – She is truly Luke’s other mom • Super fun – will organize fun activities with Luke and other kids – trips to the Zoo, Coney Island, Holiday parties with crafts, events at the Library. She has energy like no one I’ve ever seen and could handle much larger families. Very social and has made many friends in our neighborhood. • Beyond reliable – I think she has taken maybe three sick days in six years. • Flexible – willing to stay late or come early when needed. Very flexible on vacation schedules – she follows whatever we schedule for ourselves. On occasion, Luke will sleep over at her house, which he loves. • Bi-lingual – Spanish/English. Luke is quite fluent in Spanish thanks to Silvia. Her communication in English is excellent though best in person. • Very good cook (though we have not asked this of her often) • Lives in Queens • 3 kids of her own – two girls in college and one boy is a Sophomore in high-school – all great kids! Of all the difficulty with moving, giving Silvia up is the hardest part. Truly family.

My girls are excited to see her every morning and run to give her a big hug goodbye every night. Pam is proactive in setting up play dates and has fostered their social development. Pam is a wonderful cook. She prepares healthy, homemade meals for the kids with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables. (She often leaves leftovers for my husband and me too - they are delicious!). Pam is incredibly reliable and efficient. She is always on time in the morning. She keeps our household running smoothly, such that I can maximize quality time with my girls when I get home from work. She does an excellent job with the kids' laundry and keeps their spaces neat and tidy. Pam truly is a gem and I want to find her a warm, caring family to grow with.

Sharon’s work for our family has been extraordinary an all levels. We were looking for a caregiver for our 1 year old when we moved to NYC from Germany, and Sharon came highly recommended from close friends who were about to leave the city. We were extremely lucky to have her in our lives! We have always felt truly confident when our son was in Sharon’s care. She is a hardworking, organized, reliable, and trustworthy person who has a loving, caring and respectful attitude towards children. Her daily routine with our son included one-on-one-time (he loves reading books), but she organized play dates almost every day, and offered a lot of outdoor time. She taught our son many social skills, and established some extremely helpful rules of conduct. She actively engaged with our son all the time, and most importantly always put his safety first. Sharon always arrives well before time and never calls in sick. She has been flexible and very forthcoming with changing her schedule when needed, and she is extremely generous with her time and energy. She has been a bastion of calm in turbulent times, and she was our family away from our own family. We will miss her immensely. I also want to highlight that Sharon entertains close relationships with her previous families; she knows about their latest news and gets invited to vacations with them. Sharon is flexible about her starting date. We can only recommend her wholeheartedly.

If you are looking for a kind, attentive, careful, loving nanny - look no further. Ene has been a part of our family since she started with us as a full time nanny when Nico was just 6 weeks old. Nico is our first child, and we are both full time working physicians. We were extremely anxious at first to be leaving our newborn child, but Ene immediately put us at ease. She is a skilled caretaker while being deferential to us as parents. Ene always followed our directions (we are Type-A personalities) to the tee. When Nico had a cold, she was comfortable taking his temperature and kept us briefed on how he was doing frequently throughout the day. She is energetic, intelligent and interacts beautifully with Nico - playing with him, reading to him, and taking him on walks in the neighborhood. She is comfortable doing tummy time and feeding on a schedule as per our directions. Ene is CPR certified and has a recent TDAP and influenza vaccine. She helps tidy our apartment (light cleaning) and do laundry for the baby which is immensely helpful (who knew babies could produce so many dirty clothes). She was facile with using fresh/frozen breast milk and sterilizing the equipment and bottles. She even helped drop our dog at daycare when we are running late. She is flexible on hours, frequently coming early or staying late if we were stuck at work. She is ALWAYS on time and extremely dependable. She sends us pictures of Nico throughout the day so we can remain connected even while at work. We would have definitely kept Ene as Nico's nanny if we were staying in NYC, but alas, we are moving to Maine. She truly is a catch for any family lucky enough to hire her. She is hoping to find a full time position at the end of June when we are leaving. I would be glad to speak to anybody who has questions.

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. She is very safety conscious and reliable taking the children she cares for to the park, playdates, and scheduled activities. She is very familiar with all the parks and playgrounds along the upper Eastside as well as the museums in Manhattan. After having experience with Lalita for over 20 years, again I feel that she would be a wonderful asset to your child care needs!

Allison has been with our family for over four and a half years. She started working with us immediately when our son was born. We employed her first as a baby nurse until our son was three months old, and later as our full time nanny. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Allison. She has been amazing with our son, engaging him in constant conversation, activities, and learning. She has kept him very occupied, finding fun things to do in the area, getting together with other children, trips to the zoo, museums, etc. She also encourages him to be independent by providing the right level of support and encouragement. Allison is extremely reliable and dependable. She is always on time. Whenever we have needed flexibility and additional time, whether due to work travel or unforeseen events, we have been able to count on her. We have had such a great experience with Allison and highly recommend her as a nanny or baby nurse. We would be happy to speak to anyone who would like to know more.

Kamala started working for us 18 months ago, when our baby (Fredrik) was 5 months old. He immediately felt a good connection with her, as we all did. We have seen how close he has got to her, and how much fun Kamala makes his days. She is absolutely the best care taker for our son. Our 5 year old son also loves her. Kamala is patient, loving, flexible and she allways make sure Fredrik has a fun and interesting day. She easily makes friends with other nanny’s and their kids, and we appreciate that as we think it’s very valuable for a toddler to interact with other kids. We can tell Kamala really loves our children, and that she allways does what is in their best interest. She is also very helpful when it comes to find ways to make our very picky son to try new things. Kamala has come to several holidays with our family, wich has been a true blessing! We will forever be thankful for all the time and effort Kamala has made with Fredrik (and the rest of us). We are moving back to Norway in the end of June, and sadly Kamala will not be able to come with us. But hopefully that means that there is another lucky family that will have Kamala in their lives. We give Kamala the best reference we possibly can and hope all the best for her.

Vivienne is a strong, loving, intelligent and thoughtful woman with wonderful, successful adult children of her own. She's got a great deal of energy, yet a very subdued and relaxed manner. At that very unsure time after our little guy was born, from the Moment in our interview with her when she asked to hold him and took him into her arms, my husband and I looked at each other and knew Immediately that she would provide him with tremendous care, and we couldn't have been more fortunate than to have her help raise our son. Viv is not someone who needs to learn "on-the-job"...she's beyond experienced and extremely knowledgeable about children's developing needs each step of the way, including the growing need for self-reliance. This is not at all to say she's not open and flexible: at his first birthday our son was diagnosed with developmental delays, so Vivienne energetically and enthusiastically joined us on the wild and wacky road of Early Intervention (PT, OT, Speech therapy, psychotherapy) and was a true well of strength and support. She was with us every step of the way, up through becoming a happy 5th grade High Honors Dean's List student at a very reputable Manhattan private school, where he continues to thrive. As nurturing as she'd always been, she also knew when to step back and allow him to grow and become a strong and independent young guy. She's spent the last couple of years helping to raise her own new grandchildren, and now is eager to return to her beloved NYC and resume her "magic". She's still very much a treasured part of our lives, regularly sharing her warmth and humor and great spirit. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions from anyone lucky enough to have Viv enter their family's life...

My AMAZING nanny Virginia (Gigi to the kids) is available for full or part time work July and August. We are away for the Summer and sadly she can't come with us this time, as she needs to spend all nights with her daughter in Brooklyn. She is literally the BEST...a second mom to my girls. In 5.5 years with us, she has missed one day of work (and it was for her mother's funeral) and I can't think of a single day she was late or asked to leave early. She is the most reliable, sweet, thoughtful, fun-loving person, and every child adores her. She loves to play, do arts & crafts, read books...anything a kid loves to do. She makes all the kids meals, does their laundry and keeps the house neat and organized. Don't even think about stealing her...we will be back after Labor Day :) She works for us Monday-Friday 8am to 5:30pm but is flexible on days and time! Please reach out to me with any questions!

Prior to hiring our amazing nanny 3.5 years ago, her previous employer said to me: "hire her as quickly as you can, you will be so happy you did"! Boy, was she right. My husband and I have been incredibly lucky to have Melodine (Mel) watch our two children (ages 4 and 1.5 years). Now that our family is moving out of NYC, Mel will be looking for a new family. I'm frequently stopped by my neighbors in our building and told: "I just want you to know, your nanny is so wonderful with your kids." And it's true! Our family has benefited in so many ways from Mel's proactive approach to childcare: she is a fantastic cook for our kids focusing on kid-friendly and healthy meals; she schedules daily outings to playgrounds, libraries, and play dates; and she teaches our kids new things in an engaging and loving way. Working with Mel has been very easy. She is extremely punctual, reliable, and trustworthy. When one of our children was diagnosed with a food allergy, Mel rose to the challenge of taking extra precautions with her food and surroundings, and took on the responsibility of administering an emergency action plan if needed. She is also very communicative: she sends us pictures of our kids everyday, and is happy to share lots of details from the day when I return home. In conclusion, Mel allows our kids to play, grow, and learn while keeping them happy and safe. We will miss her terribly and know that her next family will be incredibly lucky to have her. I am happy to answer any questions or provide a reference. Mel would love to work with a newborn and is available August 16th.

Debbie is an amazing nanny who loves and cares for my son as her own. She has been with us from the time my son was 4 months old until now (20 months). We are only parting ways because we are relocating. Every family she has worked with in the past, she has been a long term nanny (the previous family she was with them from 3 months through kindergarten). Love and safety are Debbie's first priority, which makes her a great care taker. The bond that she and my son have can only come from love and tenderness. And, she is super aware of any environment they are in to ensure my very active toddler is safe. She is very active, making sure they are out and about and having fun and learning. She takes him to different activities and to the playground to ensure he is exposed to a variety of environments and experiences. Debbie does my son's laundry weekly and does light chores around the apartment (without being asked). Importantly, I always come home to an organized home - his toys are put away and his dishes are washed. Debbie has never been late (only minor delays due to subway delays) and has never once called out sick.

So unfortunate to let her go but we no longer need full time help and so it's necessary. We are confident her next family will love and adore her just as much as we do.

Kristina is an incredibly reliable, trustworthy, caring and active nanny. She lovingly cared for my son for two years. She started when he was three months old and helped him grow into a wonderful two-year-old boy. She values timeliness and is always early to everywhere she needs to be. Kristina diligently kept a consistent routine that helped my son be a well-rested and happy boy. She always kept him safe, clean, healthy and loved. She played a key role in sleep training him at nap time, teaching him to use utensils to feed himself, and potty training. Additionally, she kept a tidy home which I greatly appreciated! Kristina also was very active with my son. She always had him out of the house exploring the city, and she taught him to hold her hand and be safe when walking along the street. Additionally, my son was enrolled in several classed that Kristina was an active participant in. The teachers commented to me that they really enjoyed seeing her and that she was always respectful, courteous and timely. Her natural demeanor left a positive mark on my son. Kristina is a wonderful caretaker and I highly recommend her.

She excelled at managing multiple kids at once , even my first two who are 14 months apart. I got multiple compliments from all sorts of people through her years with us about how great she was with the kids in various settings (preschool staff, neighbors who witnessed her in action when I was not home.) She would take my kids to fun places and arranged play dates. my kids loved playing games with her, coloring with her, etc. My 6 year old daughter still draws pictures for her and calls her!

Michelle has been our nanny for the last 2 years. She is caring, reliable and very hard working. She cared for our twin girls (6) and then also for our son (1 years old). It takes a lot to manage 3 kids and she does it effortlessly. She manages meals, pick ups, bathtime, homework, playdates, piano lessons and more. She is particularly good with young babies - my son absolutely adores her as she has been with him since birth. He jumps out of my arms for her and cries when she leaves every day. She sends pictures and videos throughout the day and checks in on the weekend to see how the kids are doing. She helped our family through a challenging year and was very accommodating in caring for our kids. She is incredibly clean - my kitchen is spotless everyday when I get home and the kids laundry is clean and folded perfectly.

Donna was our night nurse for 4 weeks after our son was born in December 2019. Donna is very experienced, reliable and punctual. She has an infectious energy that makes even the most difficult time after birth more manageable for the baby and mommy (daddy, too). Her care and attention were 100% devoted to our son for the first month of his life. From the second she walked in the door, she would make sure he was comfortable, changed, bathed, fed (or facilitated feedings) and ready to take on this new world. Donna stays physically fit so she can keep up with the demands of a newborn baby (be it walking or holding him up for hours). She was very polite and would make every effort to allow me to sleep when I would actually get the chance. She always made sure my son's belongings were clean and in order and always left the apartment orderly. Donna would make great conversation and took an active interest in teaching us about newborn care and development. We have kept in touch even after her time with us ended because she became a part of our new little family. I recommend Donna for anyone and can provide reference as well.

It’s bittersweet for our family to have to part after almost three years with our warm and caring nanny Audrey. She’s been a loving and steady presence and a gift to us as parents and to our young son. Audrey started with us in a nanny share with another boy who was 6 weeks younger. We instantly felt in good hands as she patiently helped both families become 1st time parents while expertly nurturing both boys. She was with the two of them from age three-months to nearly two years old. That changed when the other family in our share was expecting their 2nd baby and moved to New Jersey. We couldn’t part with Audrey and so she has been with our son solo for the past 10 months. This summer we will move out of state so she is looking for a new family to work with starting in late July - early August. She is open to either a share or a single-family and is very experienced with both. A few of Audrey's many strengths include: - PUNCTUALITY: she's ALWAYS on-time. - STRONG WORK ETHIC - extremely reliable and likes to keep busy; she does our son’s meal prep and laundry along with light housework. - CHILD CONNECTION - our son loves Audrey as does the other young boy who was in our share. They both light up and run to the door when Audrey arrives in the morning and insist on walking her out at the end of the day. She is patient, consistent, energetic, loving and genuinely invested in their well-being. She loves to explore with them and to get them out of the house as much as possible (music classes, playgrounds, parks, etc) and on occasional adventures beyond. We know with certainty that they're safe under her care and have actually had other parents come up to us, completely unsolicited, to tell us how amazing she is with our son. - HIGHLY EXPERIENCE: Audrey has been working with children for over 20 years. She has a talent and passion for working with children. Our son has grown and learned so much under Audrey’s care. She has been a rock and huge support for us too as first-time parents. She is easy to communicate with and always puts our sons interest front and center. We feel extremely fortunate to have found Audrey and couldn’t have imagined a better care -provider for our son. We are confident her next family will feel the same!
