I am posting on behalf of our wonderful nanny who worked for us for 4 years. Sandra began when my oldest was 6 months old until we left the city when she was 4.5 years old. In this time period Sandra took care of both my daughters 2 days/week. After my second was born, I actually went back to work 4 months postpartum (2 months earlier than required) because I trusted her and knew she could handle my kids. She is currently working full-time during the week and is seeking a position for 2-4 Saturdays/month. Sandra was the best thing to happen to me as a new mother. Her 21 years of experience, gentle & kind demeanor and pure LOVE of my children made her a forever part of my family. We left the city in March of 2020 and my children miss Sandra and we still keep in touch regularly. Sandra would leave my apt cleaner than when she entered, my children's laundry was folded & put away, dinner was made for the kids (and often for my husband & I) when I walked in the door at 7pm. My kids were happy and engaged with Sandra. She was firm regarding behavior and fed them healthy lunches and dinners. Sandra is extremely conscientious of safety with children in the city. In addition she is vaccinated & takes the utmost precautions regarding cleanliness traveling to/from work. I cannot recommend Sandra enough... I wish I could've brought her with us when we left the city. Any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Parent Reference
Alisha has been with us for the past year and a half, and in a very short amount of time became a integral member of family, loved by my 2 yr old son and my 3 year old daughter and rock upon which my husband and I could depend on to make sure our household was running smoothly and serenely ( a big change for us!). In a perfect world I would not have to write this and she would be with us forever. She is a role model, for me and my children. Her love and care for them is only exceeded by her exactitude and attention to every detail necessary to make them safe, happy and content and me, relaxed, knowing that they are in the best hands. Every meal is thought out, diaper bags fully packed, activities crafted around learning, delight and hitting those all important milestones. She spontaneously organized playdates to ensure my son had more fun on the playground. Her background is in childcare and her experience with young children is extensive, and it shows in how easily she talks to them, teaches them and makes friends with them. My son and daughter absolutely adore her. She is responsible, punctual, an excellent planner, a fastidious caretaker and will bring joy and order to your house. She is flexible and understanding and will put the children first. She is fully vaccinated for Covid-19 and observes proper protocol. She would like to work for a family with an infant in Brooklyn starting in January 2022. Her hours at our home are 9 am to 6 pm and those suite her well but she could start a little earlier in the morning if required. On occasion she babysits for us on a Friday night or the weekend for additional pay. If you would like to call me or Alisha to discuss your needs, please don't hestitate to reach out.

Althia is an incredibly reliable, caring, Covid-conscious nanny who was a tremendous part of our caregiving team for our children from birth until age 4 when we relocated due to changes in jobs. She's previously worked with families with older children as well. She handled the needs of a toddler and newborn simultaneously, kept the house in order, took the kids to school/activities, cooked their meals, did their laundry and kept them both engaged and having fun. She took pride in helping them achieve milestones in learning and development. Our children miss her and still call her regularly to say hi. She is punctual and reliable and very highly recommended.

We wholeheartedly recommend our wonderful nanny Suzette, who has been caring for our daughters (now 10 and 7 years old) since our oldest was a newborn at 6 weeks. Suzette has been a loving and responsible partner in raising our children for over a decade. Now that they are back in school and we no longer require her full-time care, Suzette is looking to join a new family on a full-time, live-out basis in New York City. Suzette has exceeded our expectations in every way and is the only reason we have been able to juggle raising our family in NYC with two busy full-time working parents. When we met Suzette, we were new to NYC and expectant parents, but Suzette\\'s warmth, experience, and knowledge about early childhood development and activities were reassuring and so helpful. Since that time, she has helped us navigate welcoming our second daughter into the family, sleep training, potty training, laundry, cleaning (more than sufficient for our needs, and we haven\\'t required a separate housekeeper), and basic food preparation for our girls. When our children were infants, she would play with them on the ground, read and sing to them constantly, and verbally engage with them throughout the day. She has a deep understanding of how to care for young children, including their medical and nutritional well-being, giving us invaluable peace of mind as we left our girls with her every morning. As they grew older, Suzette reliably kept them active and helped them make new friends by arranging play dates and park trips in the neighborhood. Other parents, teachers, and doormen still routinely comment to us how lucky we are to have such an excellent and compassionate caregiver, including adults we’ve never met but who recognize our children and feel compelled to praise Suzette’s warmth. Suzette is highly experienced and professional, having worked with several families for long periods of time. Before her 10 years with us, she cared for two prior families, each for more than 10 years as well. She is still in close touch with all of her former “children” , who are now young adults attending or graduated from college. While it saddens us to imagine our life without Suzette, we are comforted to know that she will remain a lifelong presence in our daughters’ lives. She has primarily worked in the Upper East Side where she knows the parks and community very well, but she is open to other locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Please contact us at [email protected] or [email protected], and we\\'ll be happy to put you in touch with Suzette.

Maggie has been a life saver for our family, taking care of our very active 2-year old with everything from school drop off and pick up, playdates with classmates, ordering and grocery shopping, healthy meal prep, laundry and more – all the while dealing with a busy household with two working parents and two dogs! When Maggie shows up at 7:30 every morning, I know that she'll have everything under control for the entire day and takes so many things off our plate. She makes sure to stick to his schedule, helps with potty training, somehow gets him to eat vegetables (!), takes 2-year old temper tantrums in stride, and practices his ABCs, numbers and age-appropriate learning. She's always prepared with snacks, water, and extra layers for weather, and safety is a #1 priority for her on the playground and in general. I'm going on maternity leave next month and we unfortunately won't need Maggie's help anymore. Prior to our family she was the nanny for a family with twins, so also has the ability to take care of multiples. She would be a great asset to any family. I would be happy to answer any questions, or feel free to reach out to Maggie directly.

Dianna is the most caring and loving person and a true member of our family. She has a tremendous amount of experience as a baby nurse and nanny. She was a live-in baby nurse for my son when he was born, caring for him overnight and literally teaching me all that there is to know about caring for a baby. Ten years later, she is still with us, having helped me to raise my son, who is now in the 5th grade and caring for my four year old daughter as well. She takes a lot of pride in the children\\'s cleanliness, meal times, safety and has an active social life. Both of my children tell Dianna that they love her every single day and that love is mutual. When we\\'re not together, we facetime. The number one thing that I can say about Dianna is that she is always smiling. That kind of energy permeates through the household. As an employee, she is loyal, trustworthy and reliable. I would love to place Dianna with a new loving family.

This serves as a recommendation for Darshini who works for me as a nanny for the past 7 years taking care of my son age 7. She is nurturing, kind and an amazing person with my child who adores her very much. As a responsible individual she keeps close watch on my son while I’m away from home, cooks fresh and healthy meals every day and collects him from school. She even proactively organizes play dates with his friends. Having her as part of the family has been a fundamental aspect in the life of my child and I have no doubt that the family she moves on to will love her just as much. Darshini worked for me everyday until the impact of Covid-19 brought almost everything to a standstill. Now she only works on weekends and is therefore seeking to work with a family from Monday to Friday. Whist we respect her personal time, she is always able and willing to flex her schedule to accommodate us. During this challenging Covid era she strictly adheres to all sanitation and personal hygienic measures, including physical and social distancing where necessary, to ensure the safety of herself and others. Her dedication and well earned experience is unquestionable and evident in the way she diligently exercises her duties and responsibilities. In this regard, I have every confidence in recommending Darshini for a similar job with a family with whom she can perform with the same care, discipline and commitment. Please feel free to message me for further details at the contact provided.

Going back to work? Need someone experienced and punctual? Sick of explaining everything over and over to your caregiver who never gets it right? Would love someone who can just jump in and help? You need Mary. Mary is the best in the business - - you’ll see. Not only do I believe it, but many other moms have come up to me from baby and toddler classes to tell me so! “I wish I had a Nanny like Mary…” She has worked with my family as a full-time caregiver for 6 years (full-time) and in a part-time capacity for over 16 years. She was a huge asset to me when I was a new mom working full-time. She was extremely reliable and proved to have excellent instincts. I had a demanding job and Mary was able to take-charge (in the best and most helpful way) when I wasn’t around (doctor’s appointments, etc.). Mary is skilled in all aspects of child-care, bathing, potty-training, feeding, laundry, first-aid, play-time, etc. Mary was always in the park with my son and loved to set up playdates. She’s flexible, enjoys going to childrens’ classes, and did I mention, RELIABLE. She’s always on time and extremely honest and trustworthy. Mary is a pleasure to be around and has a sparkling sense of humor and a warm personality. (We’ve shared some great laughs!). As my childcare needs changed, Mary has cared for my two children on a part-time basis and filled in to care for them while I was traveling. She has experience with infants through elementary children in all neighborhoods of Manhattan. She is fully vaccinated for Covid-19.

Laurell has been a seamless addition to our family looking after our 2 year old son and 2 month old son with care, consideration and positive energy. She conscientious, punctual, creative and caring. She is the first to suggest new ideas to promote our children's growth and entertainment, creates healthy meals and nurtures a stable loving environment. She keeps our home organize by tracking /managing supplies that the kids may need. She has been very flexible with our schedule and often stays late so we can go on a much needed date :) My 2 year old runs to say hello in the morning and gives her a big squeeze when she leaves at the end of the day. She leaves our friends and family with such a resounding positive reaction that everyone wonders how we will manage without her. We will all miss Laurell when we move next month, but I know she will make her next family just as happy.

Adam has been our loving and caring nanny full time for four years. She has contributed tremendously to our son's growth and it sadness us to see her leave as I have become a stay at home mom. I highly recommend her to any family in need of child care. She is a reliable, highly experienced, energetic, patient, and nurturing nanny. Most importantly Adam has treated our son like her own and has become such an integral part of our family. One of the best things is our son now is fluent in French because of Adam being fluent her self. It was such a great perk to have her help our son become bilingual. From early on Adam has also helped academically by making learning fun for our son and helping with homework. It has even helped us get our boy in one of the best private schools in NYC. Adam is a god sent and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. I can only hope you welcome her into your home with open arms as we did ours. You will not be disappointed, she is every parents dream.

Deborah (Debbie) Francis is the most amazing Nanny!! She began working for us when my eldest son, Max, was 3-months old. As our family grew, with Beau 2 years later and then Beckett 2 years after that, Debbie became an invaluable member of our family. She is reliable, hardworking, and loving. Debbie was with us for 14 years and to this day our boys still love her so much! Debbie would like to find a new position with a family who has a newborn or a young child. I remember being a new mom and being worried about finding someone reliable to look after Max. From the beginning, Debbie showed her skill and expertise in caring for a baby and subsequently for my other sons when they were newborns. She takes her position very seriously and I always appreciated how she kept the boys on the schedule I had outlined for her in terms of feeding times, nap times, etc. You can call Debbie directly at (718) 926-9326 and you can call me for a reference at (917) 502-0636 and I can give you more details. Before I go, here is more flavor ... In all the years Debbie worked for us she never once didn't show up and never called out sick. Debbie is 100% trustworthy and uses excellent judgement. She taught our boys to be polite, have good manners, and ....... to eat all their vegetables! Thanks so much! Claire

Our daughter is starting daycare and we’re hoping to find a new family for our beloved nanny, Hazel. Hazel is energetic, flexible, reliable (she\'s never once been late!), organized, very trustworthy, and loves being out in all weather. Hazel keeps our daughter busy during the day with songs, music, reading, and lots of outdoor activities. Our daughter loves the park and Hazel makes sure to go early in the morning so they have the park to themselves to be safe. She constantly sends me pictures and updates while they’re out which I love and makes me feel so included in our daughter’s day. Hazel has good ideas when I ask for input and will also follow directions loyally if you have a specific way you want things done. We’ve tried to keep our daughter on a consistent schedule and Hazel does a great job of following our wishes which makes the evenings and weekends so much easier for us. Hazel goes above and beyond around our home to help my husband and I keep our house organized. She does the family’s laundry (including ours!), loads and unloads the dishwasher, and keeps all the bottles and pumping parts clean. I can’t express how amazing it has been to have help with my pump parts! My husband and I are both working from home and Hazel is very conscientious of our work schedule when we’re on calls or in meetings. She also goes above and beyond to encourage us to take time for just the two of us and helped us have our first date night in many months! Hazel takes Covid safety very seriously. She’s vaccinated and always wears a mask while she’s in public. Hazel still avoids large groups in an effort to keep herself healthy and protect our daughter. Overall Hazel treats her daughter as her own and her utmost concern is our daughter’s safety.

Beatriz is warm, calm, gentle and an all around amazing nanny and person. She has taught me and my family so much, from setting boundaries and communicating, to gentle discipline techniques and developmentally appropriate expectations and milestones. She creates such a special bond with children, it is very obvious that she has a natural ability as a caregiver. We worked with Beatriz from when my son was 7 months old until 16 months old. Beatriz has made the decision to transition to live in, and if we had the space we would be keeping her. She has 17 years experience as a nanny. She is fully vaccinated, pediatric CPR certified and certified from The Toddler Center of Development. She speaks both Spanish and English, and I was truly amazed at how much she taught my son in the time she worked with with him. I am grateful for the time we had working with Beatriz, and can confidently say that any family would be lucky to work with her.

We are looking for a new home for our incredible nanny of 13+ years, Kathy Simon. Kathy is caring, responsible, hard-working, energetic, positive, and overwhelmingly full of love. She has been with our family since our son was 6 weeks old (now 13 years old), and truly guided him and our daughter (now 10) through each phase of their life with knowledge, good-judgment, experience, support, and utmost love and care. We now consider Kathy part of our family, but our needs have changed since our kids are at school and more independent, and we are hoping to help her find another family that we know will love her as much as we have. She has been a nanny in NYC for 25 years and in all the years we have known her, has never been late for work, or arrived without a smile, an embrace for our kids, and an infectious energetic, positivity. She is always ready to dive in, take initiative as a contributor to the family, and loves to keep busy and help. When our kids were newborns, she guided us to create a nurturing but structured environment for them (sleep schedules, making baby food, lots of singing and books!). We thought she was a wonderful nanny then, but as they grew, she amazed us because she was always ready with the next phase – ready to jump down on the floor with them to create art projects, build with legos, and explore a new part of Central Park or the Museum of Natural History. Almost weekly we’d learn of a new friend they met on the playground. We credit Kathy for instilling in our kids a naturally outgoing, friendly confidence. Even as they moved on to school age, Kathy initiated playdates, managed afterschool activities, maintained their closets and supplies, and cooked dinner for and with them! I’ve truly never seen her stop! She is always attentive and unbelievably patient, ready with a gentle supportive redirect to inspire good behavior. She also has anticipated our needs as parents and their needs as kids at every step of the way, but has also always done so with generosity and care. Although I would recommend Kathy for her professionalism, her loyalty, her positivity, and her big heart, my kids would also recommend her for her energy and her sense of fun. She finds the latest new experience (storytime, singalongs, new exhibit) and finds the fun in the adventure. She is ready with a new craft project, or ready to take part in the latest living room musical or dance party at any time. At the same time, we knew we always could trust her to keep our kids safe, secure, and be a role model for them of a thoughtful, polite community member. She has been a joy and a steadfast support for all of us. She has worked on the Upper West Side for the last 20+ years. She's extremely COVID safe/cautious and is fully vaccinated. She is documented and legal to work. We’d love to help her find a family where she could develop a long working relationship. Please contact me with questions and for the highest recommendation.

Sharon is an incredibly talented nanny and was a warm presence in our house every day. She looked after our kids for almost four years (now ages 8 and 4). My kids still talk about her every day and miss her tremendously. We said goodbye to Sharon solely because my job ended and I am now a stay-at-home parent. Sharon was always on time and willing to stay late. This mattered a lot to me and my husband as we both had time consuming jobs. She made meals for the kids, kept our apartment tidy (tidier than I am able to now!), did the kid's laundry, and was so good at making playdates with other kids and suggesting activities. She genuinely cared for my children and their happiness, and they were in fantastic hands every day. I didn't have to worry about them because I knew Sharon was there. She needs a full time job and is happy to work in either Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Jolie is an outstanding caregiver and wonderful human being! She has worked with us since my 8 year old daughter was a newborn, and my sons were 4 and 6. Jolie was mainly responsible for my daughter, Eleanor. Jolie has a very cheerful disposition -- she is a happy person and fun to be around! My whole family loves Jolie and each of us have a special relationship with her. Jolie takes care of Eleanor with the perfect balance of structure and fun. She is firm and instills good behavior and manners, but is also fun, playful and easy-going. Whether playing barbies, reading books, running around at the park, Eleanor always love being with Jolie. Jolie is wonderfully capable -- she is organized, efficient and hard working. Whether going to the park, the library, a museum, or on a playdate, Jolie is very active and always has a plan for my daughter that is active and out of the house. Jolie gets along well with other moms and nannies and always works to make playdates with everyone. Jolie took my daughter to classes, doctor appts., etc. and I always felt confident sending Jolie in my stead. Also, my daughter loves going to Jolie's home for sleepovers. As Jolie has three children, she brings an experience and wisdom that I really valued and appreciated. If my daughter had an issue with a friend or school, I trusted Jolie’s judgment to manage it with Eleanor. Jolie was also a tremendous help around the house. She cooked for the kids and cleaned their rooms, organizing all the drawers and toys. Everything was always neat and organized! Jolie was also really flexible when I worked late. We feel so lucky to have Jolie in our lives. We would love to find a wonderful home for Jolie. She is looking to work with a family that has a baby or young child so she can grow with them as they grow their family. I am very happy to speak by phone about my experience with Jolie. I can be reached at 646-352-2666.

Wilma was with our family for almost 14 years, since our daughter (J.) was 4 months old, at which point I returned back to work post maternity leave. She is very responsible, always on time, thoughtful, and diligent. Most importantly, she is a very safe, loving, gentle, supportive, and caring person. This was a crucial quality to me, as I felt her calm, patient demeanor would be beneficial to our daughter, which was true. For me the most important thing as a new mother was that J. was safe and loved, particularly as I was away at work - which is exactly what we got with Wilma. She was with J. through every stage: infant, toddlerhood, preschool, childhood and pre-teen years - and J. loves her very much. She is fully vaccinated, and is lightly supporting us now, but understandably wants to have a deeper level of engagement, so I want to help Wilma find another nice, loving family. She is happy to start caring for an infant again, or she is also happy to care for children in older stage ages - she is very flexible . We live on the UWS, but she is totally fine with other places across the city/boroughs. She is extremely safe and conscientious about COVID, masking (even though she is fully vaccinated), hand sanitizing/wash etc. She is a kind soul, and she is a very important person to us, so I am taking an active role in helping her find a family. If any of you are in need of a nanny, or know someone who might be, please feel free to contact me at the 646# or you may contact her directly at the 917#. Thank you so much.

Yvonne (or Aunty Yvonne as she’s known at home) started working with our family full time when my son was 4 months old. She’s been with our family over 5 years, and we unfortunately have to say goodbye to her as our son started kindergarten in Fall 2020. Yvonne has been an incredibly reliable caregiver for our very active, spirited, curious child, and helps keep our household and lives running smoothly as both my husband and I work long hours. Yvonne worked 12 hour days with us, and was punctual (or early) every single day. As a baby, our son was incredibly colicky, and struggled with multiple food intolerances, making him a very difficult baby to soothe as well to as to feed. Yvonne somehow powered through all these issues, and was a cheerful, loving presence for our son, while also keeping detailed logs of his sleep/feeding for me, and following all care instructions perfectly. When we were attempting solids, he was initially very resistant, and would fight my husband and I when we tried to feed him. Somehow Yvonne got him to eat his food quickly with zero fuss. When we eventually sleep trained him, she took on the responsibility of nap training during the day, and in maintaining a solid bed time routine. As a toddler/pre schooler she effectively ran our son’s life during the weekday, taking him to preschool, classes, therapy classes, doctor’s appointments, playdates, to museums and the park regularly. She did everything from prepping his lunch box, getting him ready for school to giving him his dinner and bathing him. By the time we would get home, he would be clean, in his PJs and ready to play with us. We also came home to a spotless apartment every evening (she does light cleaning), something we probably took for granted until COVID struck and we had to clean up after our son every single day ourselves. She helped us through every transition in our child’s life and knowing our child was being cared for by such a reliable person really enabled us to focus on work during the day. We hope that we can help find her another family that will appreciate her and benefit from her care as we have.

Claudia has been an important part of our family since our boy + girl twins were 6 weeks old. They have now started school and our family needs have changed. After spending the last 4 years together it is with a heavy heart that we are hoping to help Claudia find an amazing family. Claudia is responsible for food, both preparing and feeding, for the kids. She also does their laundry at least once a week and/or as needed. She does light to moderate cleaning and absolutely never leaves a mess. She is extremely considerate of our home and very organized. She is absolutely never late, and always flexible when we need her to stay past time to go home because of last minute swings in schedules. We have left our children with her for weeks and weekends at a time so my husband and I could get some time together. Over the years, we've been fortunate enough to get the privilege of meeting most of her family and our kids love spending time in NJ with her sisters, niece, father, and of course their dogs! Every day we come home to our kids having played with friends, learned something new, done an art project, etc. She takes them to museums, parks and playgrounds. Best of all she plans all the activates for us. We have been extremely fortunate to have Claudia be a part of our home. She is loving, kind, and very patient. She speaks fluent English and is vaccinated.

Mechelle was an incredible nanny to our daughter, Evie. Mechelle was always active and engaged and watched Evie from 8AM-6:30PM on weekdays. She actively set up playdates with other children they would meet at the park, provide guidance on local activities that Evie could partake in that were age and developmentally appropriate. Mechelle always sang songs to Evie and read book after book with her. She has a passion for early childhood development and worked with Evie on counting and ABC's. By the time Evie was 18 months, she knew her ABCs, all her colors, and could count to 20! Mechelle even took extra steps to clean the floors daily as Evie was always motoring around our Brooklyn apartment. She was flexible, reliable (never late once), and engaged. I highly recommend Mechelle for anyone searching for a new caretaker!

Dolma Tshering was the nanny for our family from January 2016 to September 2021 – 5+ years! She was a trusted member of our household, and it is a big loss for us now that she is moving on. She kept our entire family sane during the roughest parts of the baby and toddler years and through the pandemic. I highly recommend Dolma to her new family. Personally, Dolma was an excellent guide to me during new motherhood. I could not have continued my job as a lawyer or functioned at the same high level without her steady hand, consistent approach, and obvious love and devotion to my son. I never worried about him when he was with her, even if I was traveling. She is a professional, who does her job at a high level. Dolma is easy to work with and will be a big asset to any family that she cares for. It is only because our son is going to school full time this fall that she is not staying on with us. She prefers to work “on the books”, which was important for our family. She is also vaccinated. Dolma went above and beyond when it came to caring for our son. She made sure that he ate well at all meals, and that he napped every day. Our son is an excellent napper - which we attribute to Dolma. When he's not in school he still takes a nap at age 5 1/2! She cooked for our son when necessary. She was excellent at getting him on and sticking to a schedule. This made his life and ours easier and more peaceful. She also made sure that he got outside and was very good at finding and setting up play dates with other kids in the neighborhood. Dolma is prompt and was flexible with her schedule on the occasions when we asked her to come earlier or leave later. She is not on her phone when she is on duty. I appreciated this aspect of her care more and more as time went on. She only used her phone during nap time or when she was setting up play dates or taking an occasional call from her family. Our son did not watch television when she was taking care of him. She did an excellent job of keeping the house tidy and ensured that the toys were picked up when we get home. Dolma is hyper-vigilant when it comes to mask-wearing and any other risky situations. Our son wore a mask outside the house, including outdoors, whenever he was with her. I also appreciated her focus on safety at street crossings, on the playground, and around strangers. It is with the highest regard that I recommend her to her next family.

We are looking for a new home for our nanny, Sharmilla, as our son has started full-time preschool. Sharmilla is an incredibly loving, accommodating and proactive nanny. She was our full-time caregiver over the summer. She is very punctual and flexible — she was always able to accommodate us when we needed her to come early, stay late, or switch a day around. She is so proactive and helpful around the house, always insisting on helping with laundry, cleaning the kitchen, etc. — we came out of our office one day during our son's nap, and she was mopping! She was proactive with our son, as well. She would always be prepared with extra clothes for him if he played in water at the park, and she would figure out a healthy snack if we hadn't provided one. She made recommendations about things we should get or do with him (e.g. getting a step stool for the bathroom so he can wash his own hands, things like that). She kept track of his schedule with his different classes and sent us lots of pictures. She is available full-time. She is fully vaccinated and extremely COVID cautious. Most importantly, she really cared and loved our son like her own. Any family would be lucky to have her help.

Suzy is a loving, reliable and highly experienced nanny. She joined us when our older son was two months old and has cared for our younger son since he was a newborn. Suzy was always on time and had a positive attitude and was nurturing. She is a real asset to a busy family. Suzy has a natural way of working with children with ease. We trusted her with the care and development of our children. At each age and stage she prepared meals and snacks, set schedules for sleeping and bathing and instilled her values and sense of responsibility. When the children were babies and toddlers, she helped feed them; brush their teeth and help us get them dressed; empty diaper pails; fill humidifiers and diaper drawers; prepare baked and steamed vegetables; slice fruit; assemble the kids' lunch; wash, hang to dry, fold and put away laundry; and play with the kids as needed. As the children grew older, Suzy prepared them for school in the morning, picked them up and planned and accompanied them to playdates and after school activities. Suzy’s positive attitude and understanding nature had an immeasurable impact on our family given our demanding work schedules. Suzy is a very hard worker and prides herself on being counted on. She has always been so helpful around our home keeping it so neat and tidy and ensuring we always had all the food and supplies we needed, regularly running errands for our family. She is meticulous and always happy to help anyway she can from the kids laundry, dishes, organizing closets and the playroom. Suzy has a wonderful way with children and adults.

Sunita is a fabulous nanny, offering security, experience, a lot of laughs and common sense. Her all around good judgment and fun personality also make her a wonderful addition to your home, which is critical for a successful long-term relationship. She started working with us when our oldest was an infant and continued with us through school-age years, adapting just as a parent would as they grew. She successfully raised her own two children, who are wonderful adults (and who we also know). She is now in-between families and looking for the next family to work with. To provide more detail on Sunita’s experience and personality: starting with the top priority, her judgment regarding safety and experience with newborns is at the highest level. When we were new parents, she certainly taught us some baby care skills and we often made decisions together regarding care—including when to call the doctor, how to handle a various ailments and stumbles and even social questions, such as how the children were interacting with other children. Her lovely personality means that my children had a lot of social interaction with other children and she was very well liked in our neighborhood. She ensured that the children had good meals (we would often make the shopping list together), and my husband and I came home to a tidy home every day. We did not have the time or desire to micro-manage and she exercised very good judgment about when to come to us—and never bristled when we did decide to intervene. Regarding the topics that lead to a successful long-term relationship, Sunita is a smart, cheerful, energetic and reasonable person. She has turned into a family friend and someone who has relationships with extended members of our family. There is a great deal of mutual respect between us and our children (who are now older) truly love her. I have consulted with her on “big kid” issues just to get her point of view. She truly helped us build our own judgment for when our kids were ready for “the next step”, whatever that was. She is someone who you want to have in your home and will look to build a relationship with any family she works with. I’m happy to discuss Sunita’s skills if that would be helpful.

This post is made on behalf of our beloved nanny, Lucilla, who has cared for our two daughters (ages 4 and 7) for nearly seven years. We are transitioning from her care because both of our girls will be enrolled in school full time and our childcare needs have changed. We strongly recommend Lucilla as a nanny and want to help connect her with a new family in a full-time position. Her ideal next job would be to care for an infant full time for a family looking for a long-term nanny. Lucilla is kind, patient, dedicated, and reliable. She is honest and trustworthy and exercises excellent judgment. She pays attention to details. She is always on time. She always focuses on safety and alerts us to any concerns (our younger daughter has a food allergy). Our girls would recommend Lucilla for a million more reasons. She plays with them, jokes with them, dances with them, and laughs with them. She prepares their meals, and they love what she makes. All told, they adore her and will miss her tremendously. As parents, we could not imagine a better person to take care of them the past many years. We will deeply miss her presence in our home, and the comfort of knowing she is watching the girls while we are away. Lucilla has decades of experience with newborns/babies and young children. She has been working with families in NYC for over 18 years and on the Upper West Side for the last 6+ years. She's extremely COVID safe/cautious and is fully vaccinated. She is documented and legal to work. Please contact Lucilla directly at 1-917-325-6347 or please email or call me with questions: [email protected] , 919.434.5751.

Irene is a much loved member of the family. Her experience is vast, having worked with kids of all ages as a longtime nanny. She's supportive of breastfeeding, bottle feeding, formula, a pro at potty-training, naptimes, knows all the best playground spots, and the only adult who could get our toddler to branch out beyond favored fruits to fish, veggies (cucumbers and broccoli are still faves!), and sometimes even spicier flavors. There's no one more punctual, making a high stress morning routine run smoothly for all. Most important, she loved our kids like her own, and her impeccable references suggest other families she's worked with feel the same. She is dialed in to developmental milestones, and with our support sought out neighborhood playgroups, as well, going out of her way to engage and play at every chance. Neighbors often sang her praises unprompted, and our little one's smile whenever her name is mentioned (even following a year+ separation due to Covid) says it all. Irene has been very cautious, is fully vaccinated (she's given permission to share this info), and will follow any Covid precautions your family is taking. She is available immediately.

Our family has recently moved out of state and we are hoping to help our wonderful nanny, Maureen, find a great new family. Maureen has been with us for 7 years and we couldn’t have been luckier. She started with us after my maternity leave when our oldest was 4 months old, and has continued to support us as our family’s needs have changed over the years, with the subsequent births of our 2 other children, moves to 2 different apartments in different parts of Manhattan, and through the crazy dynamics of working & school from home in the pandemic. Our kids absolutely adore her. They run to the door to greet her every morning when she arrives, and they miss her on the weekends. I routinely get unsolicited comments from other parents and teachers about what a loving and responsible caregiver she is. She cares for babies and children so naturally and patiently. I remember my husband and I staring in awe when we saw Maureen rock our firstborn to sleep while sitting on the couch, while he and I each needed to perform elaborate walking and bouncing routines to achieve that result. Maureen is very easy to talk to, which helped us build a strong and trusting relationship from the start. I always have full confidence that she will care for my children the way I want her to, and she makes helpful suggestions without overstepping. Maureen’s own children are grown, so she is very flexible with coming to work early or staying late when we need her to. She also does laundry for us, which is a huge help. She is available immediately and is open to a part-time or full-time position in Brooklyn or Manhattan. She would ideally like to start with a family with a baby, but she is open to caring for children of all ages. Maureen is a US Citizen and fully vaccinated for COVID. Please reach out to me if you would like to discuss Maureen’s amazing qualities in more detail or if you would like me to put you in contact with her.

Indra has been taking care of our daughter Olivia since she was 1 month old, she is now 4yo! We love Indra but we are relocating to Italy and sadly have to let her go. She is an incredibile nanny, honest, reliable, so great with kids (+30 years experience). Indra helped us with Olivia schedule, manners, development. She grew Olivia into a very gentle and calm kid as she is always smiley and relaxed. We would love for her to find a great new family she deserves, we would have never let her go if we didn’t decide to move :)

Sunita is a fabulous nanny, offering security, experience, a lot of laughs and common sense. Her all around good judgment and fun personality also make her a wonderful addition to your home, which is critical for a successful long-term relationship. She started working with us when our oldest was an infant and continued with us through school-age years, adapting just as a parent would as they grew. She successfully raised her own two children, who are wonderful adults (and who we also know). She is now in-between families and looking for the next family to work with. To provide more detail on Sunita’s experience and personality: starting with the top priority, her judgment regarding safety and experience with newborns is at the highest level. When we were new parents, she certainly taught us some baby care skills and we often made decisions together regarding care—including when to call the doctor, how to handle a various ailments and stumbles and even social questions, such as how the children were interacting with other children. Her lovely personality means that my children had a lot of social interaction with other children and she was very well liked in our neighborhood. She ensured that the children had good meals (we would often make the shopping list together), and my husband and I came home to a tidy home every day. We did not have the time or desire to micro-manage and she exercised very good judgment about when to come to us—and never bristled when we did decide to intervene. Regarding the topics that lead to a successful long-term relationship, Sunita is a smart, cheerful, energetic and reasonable person. She has turned into a family friend and someone who has relationships with extended members of our family. There is a great deal of mutual respect between us and our children (who are now older) truly love her. I have consulted with her on “big kid” issues just to get her point of view. She truly helped us build our own judgment for when our kids were ready for “the next step”, whatever that was. She is someone who you want to have in your home and will look to build a relationship with any family she works with. I’m happy to discuss Sunita’s skills if that would be helpful.

If you’re looking for an exceptional nanny, look no further. Joy is truly one of a kind. She is a loving, reliable, highly experienced nanny who was a part of our family on the UWS for six wonderful years. She has been a full-time nanny in NYC for over 30+ years and can honestly say we couldn’t have asked for a kinder, more dedicated person to help raise our son. Now, we want to help her find the right family that will love her as much as we do! Joy joined us when our son was only 4 months old. As first-time parents, we hit the jackpot! We can’t imagine navigating parenthood without her guidance. She helped us learn and grow as much as our son. She went out of her way to teach our son new things, including good manners, and helped arrange playdates so he was always surrounded by lots of friends. Over the years, she always made delicious meals for our son, especially breakfast, and lots of yummy treats. She never rushed out at the end of the day and was always there to listen to questions, offer advice and just be an amazing friend. She’s so warm, caring and fun. It was no surprise other people would always comment on how great she was with our child. Not to mention, her happy, confident demeanor always impressed! She is professional, reliable and trustworthy and would do overnights whenever we needed. Lastly, Joy has stayed in touch with ALL of her previous families (a total of 5) which is proof of the deep relationships she establishes and the lasting impact she has on others lives. I hope this is a helpful overview of her extensive experience. We are excited for the next family who will get to experience the enthusiasm, love and warmth she puts into looking after the children under her care. She is truly one of a kind. You’d be so lucky to have Joy in your life. I would be thrilled to speak in more detail about her qualifications and wonderful attributes. Her preference is a full-time position with first time parents, in NYC or Brooklyn.

We were incredibly lucky to have had Angela work with our family for over 10 years. She is very warm, caring, calm, patient and trustworthy — she started with us when our oldest was 5 months old and she has helped care for him and his younger brother from birth, now age 10 and 7. She became part of our family and we were very sad to say goodbye to her when we moved to the West coast (we really wanted her to move with us!). She formed a beautiful bond with our boys (e.g., they walked her to the elevator at the end of each day to get in their last minute with her) and we received many reports from other parents on how attentive she was with them and how well she cared for them. She was excellent at following their schedules — feeding/napping schedules when they were babies/toddlers and now school and various after-school schedules — and taking them on many activities/adventures in Manhattan and Brooklyn. She is punctual and extremely reliable — she never missed a day of work over her time with us! We were particular about certain things (e.g., rules, homework, etc.) and she always followed through on everything that we asked. Most importantly, we knew our boys were always safe with Angela (e.g., on the subways and at the parks). She is also flexible, open to working late during the week or on weekends, as well as doing household chores, which we really appreciated. We are a bilingual household (Japanese and English) and she was great with picking up words and phrases in Japanese and just generally engaging with the Japanese culture. She has been a caregiver for 25+ years in the NYC area and has a lot of experience with all stages of children (babies, toddler, pre-schoolers, elementary school students, etc.). We highly recommend her and we hope she can find a wonderful family to support. She is fully Covid vaccinated. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out -- we're happy to respond!

We are looking to help Radica find a new position. We are an UWS family and she was our nanny/housekeeper for over the past 15 years. She took care of our son afterschool and in the summer since he was six. She handled all his playdates, afterschool activities, sports practices, summer camps, etc.. She was responsible for his snacks and most of his meals. Before she was our full-time housekeeper she handled all my son's laundry and did our general housekeeping as well. She is looking for a nanny and/or housekeeper position for children above the age 5. We do not have enough good things to say about her. She was fantastic with our son and they remain very close. She is very reliable and hardworking. She is always on time, has a great personality, and is very trustworthy. I could go on-and-on. After our son was grown we kept her on as a fulltime housekeeper. We recently downsized and no longer need daily help. Radica is a very happy, friendly, lovable individual - please let me know if we can provide any further details or background.

It is our pleasure to recommend Marie to any family looking for a truly outstanding nanny. Marie has been with our family since our kids were six-months old and 15-months old. They are now two years old and almost three years old. We would absolutely keep her forever if we could. However, we have left the NYC area and want Marie to find a family that doesn't require a commute outside the boroughs. Marie started with us just as the pandemic began, and safely and honestly navigated the new normal with us. She taught our children how to wear masks, wash their hands, and planned creatively to keep them engaged safely throughout quarantine. She communicated openly and honestly with us throughout everything. We will forever be grateful for her flexibility, understanding, and trust as we figured out how to work remotely with the kids in our apartment. During such an uncertain time, it meant the world to us to have Marie with our family, caring for our children, and supporting us. Overall, Marie is diligent, firm but caring, organized, extremely dependable, and comes with significant experience in early childhood development. She has an extensive background in infant and early childhood development. Marie organized developmentally appropriate arts and crafts projects for the kids, taught them a variety of songs and movements, and ensured they were physically engaged throughout the day with fine motor activities. She created and maintains a daily routine for the kids that works with our family's schedule, including preparing and serving all of the kids' meals. Before the pandemic and then once we formed a pod with another family, she organized safe playdates, took the kids to various playgrounds and museums, and found local activities to participate in, such as storytime at the library. Not only does Marie provide day-to-day care for our children, she offers us continuous non-judgemental advice and support at the various stages of our children's development, from sleep training to feeding schedules to potty training and beginning preschool academics. We cannot say enough positive things about the way she has helped our two children grow, and the peace of mind she has provided us while we work our busy schedules. Any family would be truly lucky to have her step into their home.

Millie is a treasure and has been an incalculable gift to our family as a wonderful caretaker to our two daughters (3.5 years and 1.5 years old) since our youngest was 7 months old. We are moving across the country and will miss her terribly. We would recommend her without hesitation for anyone looking for an excellent, experienced and trustworthy caretaker. Millie is very nurturing, organized, responsible, prompt, safety oriented, easy to talk to and disciplined. Our children and household have thrived with her support. In the almost 3 years she’s been with us, working 5 days per week, she has been on-time and barely ever taken a sick day. On a daily basis, she prepares the children's breakfast (if they haven't had it already), lunch, dinner and snacks, does all their dishes and ours as well. She also does their laundry, folds them wonderfully and puts them away and cleans up after them. She takes them to the park twice per day, and the library and toddler gym when it's cold. She is great about taking them to special learning experiences happening at any of these places. She is excellent about maintaining and supporting whatever feeding, napping, educational and even potty-training schedule or preferences you may want. She is very patient and adaptable to each baby and child's needs. She gives advice from her past experience when asked, but always seeks our input on what we'd prefer for the children. She's very engaging with the girls at home and will read, play, draw and paint with them. I love how they have learned, laughed and grown with her. She's is always great about preparing all they need when going out, like extra clothes, jackets, food, bug spray, whatever is needed, she thinks of it. She's traveled by car locally on vacation with us and took incredible care of our baby when she got sick on that vacation and woke up incredibly early! She has experience with kids of all ages, from newborns through elementary and high school and in homes with or without pets. She has also been very flexible and helped out us out many times when we have needed to change our schedules. She is so thoughtful. She is fully vaccinated and looking for a new role beginning in November. We cannot say enough about Millie. Whoever gets to have her in their home next will have found a true gift. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions or to reach out to speak with Millie.

She is beyond helpful! She will leave your house looking better than when she arrived- every day! When the babies sleep, she works on your house! We were sad to say goodbye to her when our youngest went off to daycare! We truly can't recommend Alicia enough!!

We have been lucky to have Rupa take care of our son for the last 3 years. Rupa came to take care of our son when he was 18 months old. The only reason we no longer need her is that our son has now started going to school full time. Rupa has become like family for us over that time. She is conscientious, punctual and dependable. Moreover, she treats our son with warmth and love which goes beyond just doing tasks. Our son knows that besides his parents, Rupa (he calls her Auntie) will be there for him and he can trust and depend on her. Similarly for us, we always feel that our son is safe and well looked after with Rupa, which brings a lot of peace of mind to us as working parents. Rupa does a great job of looking after our son’s needs such as making him fresh food, taking him to activities, getting him ready without needing much instruction. She is intuitive about a child’s needs which makes her highly dependable. she has also made sure that he has a great circle of similar aged kids by making friends with other nannies in the neighborhood and at his school. As a result, our son has a lot of friends to play with and has been well socialized. Rupa has also been great in terms of teaching our son basic skills so that he can become more independent; regularly helps him with learning to read and write; and engages him with creative activities and outings such as to the park, museum, ferry landing or library. She has even been able to get him to begin taking care of small chores appropriate for a 4 year old. She does all of this in an engaging way. Lastly, Rupa not only cares about our son, but also cares about the family and will always try to help make our lives easier, which was a great help - especially during covid. She has gone to lengths to make sure our son has a loving and attentive environment at home even while his parents work. She did little things to brighten up our home by planting plants, getting flowers and even making snacks. Our son has developed a strong bond and love for Rupa and she will continue to be a part of our lives even if she stops being his nanny.

We are looking to help our amazing French-speaking nanny of 3.5 years to find another full-time position. Our family has re-located back to Canada (we would take Julie with us if we could!!) and would like to find another family who she can have such a great impact on. Julie has over 20 years of long-term experience with families in Park Slope (can provide other references on request), caring for both 1 and 2 children. She has also worked as a newborn care specialist, so is extremely capable with infants. Julie started with our family when my daughter was 6 months old. After letting go of our first two nannies, we were nervous, however, Julie came in and within minutes built strong trust and showed that she was extremely good at her job. Julie has a very calm and caring demeanor that makes you feel at ease. With both my husband and I being from other countries, we don’t have any family nearby. Julie filled this gap and was an integral part of our “village”. Our daughter is completely in love with Julie and whenever we are away or Julie is on vacation, she always asks for her. Since Julie has worked in Park Slope for so long, she has an amazing network of great nannies which she scheduled playdates with all the time. She also recommended various classes that she had been to before that our daughter loves. Another amazing thing (and one of our must haves) is that Julie speaks French, which is very difficult to come by. She speaks exclusively French to our kids and they have learned so much already. Both my husband and I are very type A and have a lot of rules to follow, however, Julie never batted an eye and always followed through with anything we asked. She helped with all my daughter’s meal prep, laundry and did a lot of extras around the house that we never asked her to do. We have always had stairs where we lived and Julie is always able to manage the stroller and kids no problem. After the birth of my son, Julie was the only person I trusted to leave him alone with in those first few months. She is very good at helping the kids play together and learn to share. She has a very calm demeanor and a tremendous amount of patience (way more than I do). Please call, text or email me anytime for any other questions, I would be happy to answer.

We are privileged to have had Judy Lopez as a nanny to our three children. Judy worked with us from April 2014 - September 2021, and has proven to be a loving, dedicated, fun and reliable caretaker since our oldest child, who is now seven-and-a-half, was an infant. She has been a part of our family throughout our entire journey as parents to-date, and we are so grateful for her… she has quite literally watched all of our children grow! Judy is wonderful with children of all ages. She can care for babies as naturally as she can engage with kids. Our children are currently 2.5; 5.5; and 7.5, and Judy was always able to find activities or adventures that satisfy their varied interests, simultaneously. She reads and sings; runs and plays; swims and experiments… she was always engaged in activities with our kids. And they adored her. They still do! Judy was also helpful with daily activities, such as grocery shopping; tidying the house; preparing meals for the children; laundry; and keeping the children’s’ spaces organized. She also tracked and managed supplies that the kids may need. She is a great partner. In a nutshell, Judy is a hard-working, fun, organized, loving and warm caretaker, and will add tremendous value to any family. As we have moved out of the city, Judy is currently looking for a long-term position, helping with one or two young children.

Our wonderful nanny, Kerrie, is looking for a new family to work with starting this fall. The only reason she is no longer working with us is because my family has recently relocated to Michigan (we would bring her with us if that was possible!!). Kerrie has taken care of our son, who is now 3 and a half, for over the past 2 years. Prior to working with us as a nanny, she worked in a preschool/daycare and has extensive experience with young kids, including raising 3 beautiful children of her own. Kerrie has been extremely reliable and trustworthy. She has taken great care of our son who adores her. She knows the UWS well, is constantly setting up play dates, taking Carter to book stores, music classes, museums, the zoo, playgrounds, etc. She is consistently teaching me about what’s going on in the area. In addition to external activities, she’s also great at sitting in our apartment reading books, doing arts and crafts (together with my son they have created an entire alphabet of animals that are hanging on his wall), putting on puppet plays and singing new songs. She continues to adapt as he grows and I really can’t say enough good things about our time together. In addition, she keeps our home/life running smoothly and helps by keeping our apartment neat, does our son's laundry, and cooks nearly all of his meals. I would love to help her find another great long-term position. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Our family's beloved nanny, Savan, is looking for a new position because we have moved out of the city. We have two children aged 4 and 1.5 years, and Savan was with us for four years, since my daughter was an infant. We always knew that our children were safe and happy when they were with Savan. Our home felt more peaceful and full of joy when she was there. After more than twenty years of being a professional nanny in New York, she knows every playground, park, and ice cream store in Manhattan. She takes the kids to activities and the library, sets up playdates, and stays active with them all day long. Savan is completely reliable in every sense, is never late, and does not cancel. She has grown children of her own, and has years of experience setting sleep schedules and potty training, and she taught our daughter to write letters. In addition to being fully vaccinated, she takes safety very seriously, and never lets the kids out of her sight. Most importantly, she is kind, funny, and patient, and has shown our children how to be the same way. My husband and I had two busy full-time jobs, and it gave us peace of mind to be able to rely on Savan; when I worked from home, the apartment was peaceful and we all felt comfortable together. Savan is available immediately and has a flexible start date. Her ideal position is with a family on the Upper East Side with a new baby; that is how she started with us and it was the best decision we ever made. Please feel free to contact me with questions; Savan also has several excellent references.

Dione was with us for almost 11 years, since my son was 3 months old. She started with us in NYC and decided to commute to us in Westchester when we moved. Due to a change in my husband's job status, we no longer needed full-time childcare. Dione lives in Brooklyn and is looking for a full-time position closer to home. Dione is kind, caring, loving, and extremely responsible. We have never had any issues with tardiness or unexplained absences. Dione has transitioned wonderfully from caring for my children as infants to their current ages of 11 and 8 years old. When my children were toddlers, Dione took them to various activities at the library and play gyms. Since they have transitioned to school age, she now takes them to all after-school activities. People often compliment us on how well-behaved and polite our children are, and a lot of that is attributed to Dione teaching them as they have grown. Dione has also helped my children through the past year with their remote schooling and homework. She is very covid conscious and is fully vaccinated. We consider Dione a part of the family and were very sad to see her go. Any family would be extremely lucky to have her take care of their children.

Parent Reference
Luzia is a mature, highly experienced nanny/baby nurse who has been a part of our family for six years. She joined us as our baby nurse when our twin daughters were born and she has been a wise, reliable and caring partner as we navigated every milestone including welcoming our son 4 years ago. Her happy, consistent and patient demeanor have helped our children blossom while fostering their independence and building their self confidence. She is very proactive and hands on and is an open communicator that focuses on the best interests of the children, both in the short term and long term. She’s always creating new opportunities for them to learn, explore and enjoy the outdoors in every season! As our kids are now in school full time, we want her to find a new opportunity where her wisdom and experience can guide and support a new family. She is a team player and has assisted our family as we navigated new jobs, commutes, travel and various family commitments. Her flexibility and dedication have been exemplary and she’s incredibly reliable. She has a way of always finding a solution that best fits the needs of the family and is truly a wonderful person who cares deeply. Her 30+ years of experience across various age groups allow for working parents like us to fully trust her judgment knowing our children are being cared for in the most caring and respectful manner. She was a live in nanny as she lives Brooklyn and we are in CT but she is flexible in terms of live in/out depending on distance to Brooklyn. She has experience with all age groups and has joined her prior families as their baby nurse and stayed with them until the kids started elementary school. I hope this is a helpful overview of her extensive experience and positive demeanor and I would be glad to speak in more detail if her profile is of further interest. We want her to find the right family who will love her as much as we do!

Ann is a very reliable and flexible nanny that will cook, clean, and do laundry for the whole family. She loves to read to kids, go on outings and cook for them - she is very gentle and calm, does not get flustered or stressed by tantrums etc., and likes to create trust and relationships with children. Our son is going to preschool full time so she is looking for new opportunities to start ASAP.

Our Dear Nanny Nelly who was with us for 7 years will be available to support a new family this month as our girls have grown and our needs have changed. I can’t say enough amazing things about Nelly who has helped two working parents raise both of our girls in Manhattan. Nelly has 30+ years’ experience in childcare, is extremely neat and organized, dependable, and has given so much love and support to our family. Our daughters were never on technology with her and she is a very healthy eater and helped ensure our girls enjoyed healthy foods from the start, *important for me.

We want to share that our son’s much-beloved caregiver, Denise Paul, is available for a full-time nanny position, ideally for a baby, beginning in December 2021, as we are moving out of the area. Denise has been with us (and I say us because she feels like a member of our family) for three years, since Teddy was 3 months old. The list of Denise’s many wonderful attributes is very long, but I’ll note the following: - Denise treats Teddy with such warmth and love. Her good humor is infectious! He has thrived under her nurturing care. I attribute much of his resiliency, good humor and positive attitude to Denise’s influence. She has always challenged Teddy to grow and push himself – on the playground, on his scooter, in making friends. She has made Teddy a better kid, and me and my husband better parents. - Denise manages every aspect of Teddy’s care – preparing him healthy and varied breakfasts, lunches, dinner and snacks; taking care of his laundry; doing light housekeeping in his room and bathroom; running errands; and more. When we started Teddy on solid foods, she made from scratch all kinds of different purees. We never bought baby food because Denise kept him on such a good program (even packing us weeks’ worth of provisions when we went on vacation). - Denise could not be more reliable and punctual and has never let us down. Even in bad weather, she’s here on time. It is the most reassuring thing to know that from the moment she arrives, she has everything under total control. We trust her completely. - Denise is great at making relationships with other parents and caregivers. Teddy has a lovely little community of children due to connections which Denise has made. - Even during the height of the pandemic, when we were away from the city, Denise checked in almost daily to see how Teddy was getting on. I know she loves him as if he were her own. - For Brooklyn parents specifically, Denise knows Brooklyn Heights / Cobble Hill / Boerum Hill / DUMBO like the back of her hand – every playground, every interesting play space, every music teacher. She and Teddy are always out and about doing something fun – even adventurous outings to the zoo, aquarium or Coney Island. She even scouted out Teddy’s nursery school for us. The only thing which could separate us from Denise is the cross-country move we’re about to take, and we’re really mourning the loss of her. She has a long list of positive references from before she joined our family. Any family who works with her next is fortunate to have her! Please feel free to contact me for a more detailed reference (917-882-0047) or reach out to Denise directly (718-809-0207). Rosie & Doug Tilley
