We are helping our wonderful nanny Lituania (\"Nana\") find a new position after three years with us. Nana started caring for our son when he was two and is getting ready to leave us now that he is getting ready to start school. She has been such a positive influence in his life. Nana is loving, dependable, nurturing, and hardworking. She truly cares deeply for our son. She is very creative and always coming up with fun activities for them - exploring new parks in our neighborhood, meeting new friends and organizing playdates, and fun arts and crafts. Another amazing thing about Nana is that she cooks for our son. Since both my husband and I work and do not have much time to cook, this is incredibly helpful. Nana is also the most reliable and dependable person I have ever worked with. In three years, she has never taken a sick day and is always on time (in fact, early) and never has an issue staying late if we are delayed at work.

AN HONEST, WARM, RECOMMENDATION FOR MARIA SAWH My nanny of 4 years, Maria Sawh, is looking for a F/T job (Mon-Fri 45-50 hrs/week) in Manhattan, Queens or Brooklyn. Maria started with my family when my son was only 2.5 and now that my son is 4 years old our needs have changed. We have employed her for an entire year longer than we truly needed her because she was so essential to our family! Maria is incredibly warm and nurturing. She is also extremely hardworking, honest and reliable. We’ve trusted her implicitly to watch our son when he was an infant and now to accompany him to/from school, extracurricular and play dates around Manhattan. She’s also spent the weekend taking care of him while my husband and I traveled. Maria is also extremely efficient and organized. She often cooks or gets lunch/dinner for my son in addition to watching him closely - since he’s very energetic! She also has always kept my house tidy, cleaned my son’s laundry twice a week and sometimes did laundry for our whole family. The best thing about Maria is that she always took my son out to explore and play outside in nice weather and frequently coordinated play dates around the neighborhood so my son grew up with an immediate network of friends - this has also helped me find friends and new activities as my son has grown. We strongly recommend Maria and I welcome your questions! You can contact Maria directly at Tel: +1 (718) 717-4278 to arrange an interview.

During my search for a nanny for my first Child who is 15 years old now. I was very scared and nervous. For every first time parent, It is very hard to find some who is not only a nanny for a family to your kids and that I found in Sultana. My two boys were very well taken care of. clean and fed on time. In the summer they spent their out doors and and at the Library. I felt my kids were safe. I didnt have to check up on her. I did not have any trouble with her following rules and doing what I want her to do for my kid. She was always punctual and flexible with our Schedule.

Our previous nanny/caregiver is seeking a position as a nanny/ caregiver. Jackie started working for us as a nanny in 2004. I can only say nice things about Jackie as she was a terrific nanny and eventually a loving caregiver. She worked for my daughter, who was an Emergency Room physician. My daughter had two children who were four or five months and two years old when Jackie started to work with them. Jackie was able to meet my daughter’s high expectations in caring for her children. She provided loving care and sometimes they would pout when it was time for Jackie to go home! Some of Jackie’s responsibilities included providing breakfast and/or lunch for the babies. Very often she would make decisions based on the food available and the boys likes and dislikes at a particular time. Some days, it would involve two different meals at the same time! It didn’t matter to her as long as the boys were happy. She knew about helping a child who might be choking on food. That was very important to my daughter. She would wash and dress the boys for either playtime or naps, often she would help them brush their teeth and wash up. The youngest was clearly still in diapers and that was never a problem nor did he ever have diaper rash. He was always clean and fresh. She would bathe the children if my daughter was working night shift. My daughter was very particular about the cleanliness of her children and insisted that people wash their hands when they came into the house. The boys were never bored. They loved spending time with Jackie. If there was not a scheduled playdate, Jackie would take the boys to the park and make sure that they were playing with appropriately-aged children. At home, the television was not on. Jackie read to the boys, played with them building Legos or blocks, and told them lovely stories about how she grew up with a twin sister. That was ‘very neat’ for the boys to imagine two of Jackie growing up. Jackie loved them as much as they loved her! It was clear to all that knew their relationship. Jackie cared for the boys as a nanny during the period of years that my daughter was able to work. Unfortunately, she also was diagnosed with cancer when her children were quite young and recently passed away after a 12-year battle with it. Her children were quite young when she was diagnosed, eight months and 2 ½ years old. So, Jackie was our ‘go-to’ nanny during this time and worked for her many years. To-date, we have known Jackie some 14 or 15 years. Jackie has received her Certification as a Home Health Assistant. In addition, she is also certified in CPR for both infants and adults. We always felt comfortable leaving the children with Jackie. The children loved and respected Jackie. How could they not; she was kind, loving and a teacher to them. She took her responsibilities toward them seriously. Jackie is a ‘beyond’ kind and loving person. So, I wanted to write this recommendation for Jackie not only because she asked me to, but because I just think that Jackie is a ‘one of a kind’ person. She is someone to be trusted and respected.

We are moving to Florida and will be sad to say goodbye to our super nanny! Tessa came to us highly recommended and has been wonderful ever since. She is Energetic , very Responsible, also Punctual and never missed a day of work. Tessa's daily routine with the boys is going to the park, singalongs, making playdates and preparing healthy meals for them. We always walked in on Tessa and the boys happily sitting on the carpet playing cars, board games and building blocks. We trust her judgment because she is always ahead of us, and her attention is focused on what's best for our boys. I simply can't say enough about how Blessed we feel to have her in our family and to that end, we care deeply about helping her to secure a good family that will value her and offer her the security she truly deserves.

Nanda has been a full time caregiver for two children (boy - 8 years, girl - 5 years) for the last 4.5 years. She has worked full time with us and prior to us- with another family in our building with two children for 5 plus years. Nanda is experienced, reliable, punctual, caring and understands the need for dependable help. We have always been full time working parents and having the dependability of Nanda’s care with our family has been invaluable and unwavering. Given that our children are now in school full time, the hours are shifting and our needs have changed. We provide our highest recommendation for Nanda in finding a new family to work with. She is an asset to any family. An ideal position would be on UWS but Nanda is flexible. Nanda has a calm disposition under all circumstances and understands parent needs, children varying schedules, and parent schedules/travel. Nanda helps arrange playdates, helped bring our children to doctor appointments, etc. She respects the privacy of the family as well. She has a family of her own that are helpful as well. Nanda has never been late, is a professional, and understands the role of a full time nanny. We give our highest recommendation and can provide another family reference as well.

Sandra has been caregiver for our son and daughter for over 12 years, and started with our family when our firstborn was 3 months old. She is incredibly dedicated, responsible and trustworthy - she has rarely missed a day in over a decade and makes every effort to stay late or cover on days when we needed extra help. Most importantly, she is a wonderful blend of strength, order and warmth - she manages schedules across two busy children's lives, and does so with a warmth and joy that is recognized and respected within our community. In their younger years, Sandra was our kids' treasured companion and she would play, read, draw, and take them on adventures to the museum or library. Our son and daughter have grown into thoughtful, loving children and I give Sandra great credit for her part in that.

I am happy to recommend Beverly as a caregiver. Beverly worked in our home for approximately one and a half years, caring for our daughter from age 6 months to 2 years. I recommend Beverly for several reasons. First, she is punctual and dependable. I never had to worry about Beverly being on time in the mornings, and she was always willing to stay late when my husband and I had later work commitments. We also relied on Beverly on weekends when we had emergencies, and I always knew I could count on her. Second, Beverly is incredibly patient, which is essential in caring for infants and toddlers. Nothing seemed to phase her, and she was able to respond to our daughter calmly in all situations. Third, Beverly went out of her way to facilitate play dates for our daughter. I loved that our daughter had frequent interaction with other children her age, and my husband and I enjoyed developing relationships with other parents in our neighborhood as well. Fourth, she communicated well throughout our time together, and specifically, she sent frequent daily updates and pictures of my daughter. Lastly, Beverly genuinely loves the children she cares for. My daughter was excited when Beverly arrived in the mornings and enjoyed spending her day with her.

But more importantly, she is enthusiastic, VERY hard working and has a magic touch with babies. She watches our daughter in the morning (when my husband is teaching), and worked overnight as our baby nurse when I first returned to work. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

We are happy to provide references for Pat at anytime. She has been with us for 8 years and raised our son and daughter like her own with an unbelievable amount of love and compassion, patience, trustworthiness, reliability, flexibility, adaptability, understanding, good communication skills and thoughtful care. We recently moved to New Jersey and would love to find her a good home. I can count on one hand the times she was late. In fact, she usually came 15 minutes early!

Pat is like a grandmother to my children and they miss her so much but she is available now to bless another family! Please reach out to me with any questions!

We are relocating our family from NYC to Canada, and as a result our much-loved nanny Shobah is looking for a new full-time opportunity. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Shobah has been our full-time nanny for the past two-and-a-half years, helping to raise our boys, ages 3 and 1. We feel very lucky to have been able to entrust the care and development of our children to her. Our boys love her dearly, and she reciprocates that love in kind. Shobah is *always* extremely attentive and focused on minding the boys with positive energy and caring devotion. She is a whirlwind of positivity and professionalism in our lives, from the first moment she arrives in the morning to when she leaves at the end of the day. In addition to keeping our children active, engaged and well-loved throughout the day, Shobah happily prepares their meals, does their laundry, and will do light groceries and tidying as necessary. Amidst the chaos of handling 2 young boys, she finds a way to keep everything running smoothly and we are always grateful to come home to a ship-shape house. A US citizen, Shobah has worked as a nanny for 30+ years. Prior to our family, Shobah worked for another family in the Upper West Side for 13 years, helping to raise their two children from newborn through to teenagehood. She is friendly, trustworthy, discrete, communicates well, and has been flexible to help accommodate our family’s needs over the years. Loyal and dependable by nature, Shobah favors an arrangement with a family for whom she could have a long-term opportunity. Shobah quickly established herself as part of our family, and we are tremendously sad to be severing the deep bonds that have developed with our children. Shobah is that nanny that we would describe as “the best of the best” out there, and we want to help her find a lucky new family for whom she can devote her loving care and energetic personality in a full-time capacity. Shobah has been working in the Upper West Side for almost 20 years, and would be happy to either stay in the UWS or consider a neighborhood in Brooklyn. Please get in touch with us if you’d like to learn more about her, or know any friends or colleagues who may be interested. Mat & Fiona Balez Upper West Side

Beverly has 25+ years of nanny experience and cared for our newborn son, Scott for one year until we moved away a month ago. We were very devastated to leave because she simply was the best! As a first-time mom, I really appreciated Beverly’s knowledge about infants because she taught me everything I needed to know and she immediately bonded with Scott. She took impeccable care of him and went the extra mile to make our lives easier. She was excellent at putting Scott on a schedule for playing, eating, bathing and sleeping resulting in a very happy baby! She’s flexible and trustworthy but also very kind, respectful and honest. In addition to constantly interacting with Scott, she kept my house unbelievably clean & does the best laundry I’ve ever seen. She would be a blessing for any family!

Joann is warm, caring, responsible, reliable and proactive. My girls love her and we give her credit for helping to shape them. Joann takes great pride in her work. Even after all of these years, I still receive unsolicited feedback from other parents and teachers telling me how wonderful she is. She is looking for a full time job. We would be delighted to keep her for an afternoon or two if that works for her new family. Ideally for us, she would be on the Upper East Side so we could at least have dinner with her once a week, but she's open to positions in other areas too. She is an amazing babysitter.

She kisses booboos and also provides balanced structure. She ensures our daughter gets fresh air and interaction with other children everyday (park, library, playdates, gym class, music class). She is reliable (has never missed one day of work in two years), is joyful in her support and is an exceptional cook. Now that we are settled in NJ, we would like to help her find an amazing family closer to her home in either Brooklyn or Manhattan.

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!

Manuela is a very special woman. We’ve known her for over 3 years but she only started to work for our family full time until October of 2018 when our nanny of over 3 years suddenly quit for family reasons. Manuela, was working part time for a family of two but looking for full time work and so that’s how she came to work for our family. I have a 18 mos and 3.5 year old and she is amazing with them. She is so gentle, calm, and happy with both of them. She has the best attitude and always eager to help and solve problems. She’s proactive and very receptive to directions and guidance, she doesn’t give push back or attitude ever. She’s so lovely and always a real pleasure to be around. She’s always prompt and most of the time shows up early. She can babysit on weekdays and weekends. My kids always greet her at the door with huge hugs. She does light cleaning, cooking, and laundry for kids. She pick up groceries for me if I ask her or just on her own if she noticed we are low. She even on her own started to teach my oldest son French without even asking her. She’s the best and we are so sad to say goodbye to her but we are moving out of the city in June and can’t take her with us, even though I would if I could in a heartbeat. She is a rare find and a special person with a great heart and educated and smart!

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.

I can\'t possibly say enough about Denise in 500 words! She has been with us for almost five years, and she raised my son side by side with me. Denise was a blessing for us, she made my life possible. My son was very difficult, and was diagnosed with Autism at 3. She was right there with me, at every therapist. There are very few people that would have had the patience and maturity to handle him. Thankfully, she did. Yes she handled the day to day, but she did so much more. Contact her by phone

Urila is amazing. She worked for me for almost 6 years and started when my oldest child was 3 months old. In those 6 years, she helped me raise three children. She is great with all ages from newborn to school age. She worked with them on learning age appropriate material (colors, ABCs, reading, etc.) My kids adore her and I always knew that my children were in great hands and well cared for with her. She was also reliable and never called out. She also was proactive in arranging play dates and other plans for my kids. She would come up with fun activities and art projects as well as took the kids outside all the time to the library, music classes, museums, parks, and play rooms. I can't say enough good things about Urila. She helped me prepare food for the kids and always made sure they ate their fruit and veggies. During her time with my family, Urila went above and beyond. She has a love of all children and often other moms would ask me if Urila would be able to supervise their children as well. Urila is reliable and trustworthy and I could always count on her to be there. Urila would be a great addition to any family.

Angy has been our nanny since November. She was amazing with our daughter Sophia who is 17 months old. She is super loving and kind. Angy would always set up play dates with other nannies, or plan other activities to keep her busy. She even thought her some sign language and we encouraged her to speak Spanish to her. Music and learning was always incorporated in play time. As a former chef she had no problems to prepare Sophia\'s lunches and she is good with pets. She is CPR certified and has a lot of experience in child care and especially newborns and toddlers. Simply said she was a part of our family and took great care of our little one. Unfortunately our needs changed. I\'m sure she will make a great addition to your family!

She arranged play dates, took the kids to classes and the playground, and played games with them. Michel also helped a lot around the house – keeping the first floor and the kids’ rooms and play areas spotless, doing the laundry and tidying up wherever it was needed without me ever having to ask. She is flexible and easygoing and has always been willing to work on weekends or late at night when needed. Our children are now in school full time, so our needs have changed and we no longer need full time help.

CARING, RESPONSIBLE, TRUSTWORTHY are but a few of the ways to describe Eve. Eve was Nanny to my two girls from the time they were 3 and 5 until they were 9 and 11. Eve's responsibilities included engaging them in activities when they were younger to keeping a vigilant eye out when they were playing outside or when she took them to the park. Eve helped to broaden their group of friends by reaching out to other Nannies in the neighborhood and coordinating playdates. In the house, Eve kept the girls' bedrooms, bathroom, and laundry clean and organized. She cooked for them and some of her dishes became their favorites for dinner and lunch. Eve also pitches in with chores around the house when some additional help is needed. Eve takes guidance well. She is smart and perceptive. I never worried about my children's safety or well-being. Eve is available full or part-time on a Live-Out basis. We love Eve and recommend her without reservation. Feel free to set up a call with me if you want to learn more: [email protected]

She was our daughter's nanny starting when she was three months old until she went to middle school at age 11. We are all still close with her. She worked for another family after us for a year and a half who loved her, but they have just moved to Colorado and she is looking once again. From early on, Allison took our daughter to the library each week (on her own initiative/not even suggested by us), the playground, and elsewhere in the neighborhood. She knows Brooklyn very well, makes friends easily and easily builds a community of friends around her and around the child. She will arranged playdates, take them to music classes or just hang around and play games with them. She is not on her phone except when necessary and always had a sharp eye out for our daughter. Allison is always accommodating, flexible and easy to be around. She has more than 20 years experience as a nanny in the Brooklyn neighborhoods. She loves to read herself and loved reading to our daughter when she was young. Everyone who has ever come in contact with Allison in our neighborhood has a kind word to say about her. She is just a responsible, respectful, kind person who you can trust on every level.

March 09, 2019 It is my great pleasure to recommend Angelica Paulino as a nanny. Angelica has been my nanny for the past 3 years to my 4-year-old daughter. Angelica has been working for me part time since November 2014. Since the first day she stepped foot inside my home, she proved herself to be an amazing member to my family. A trusted colleague recommended Angelica to me. My daughter was born at 27 weeks. She was considered a pre-mature infant and stood in the hospital for 3 months. As a first time mother, it was a very stressful time for me. Angelica basically taught me everything that I needed to know when it came down to taking care and raising a pre-matured baby. She even stood to sleep over on days that I had school and also had to work long hours. My daughter considers Angelica as her second mommy. She took my daughter to medical appointments, play dates, and also took her to swimming, ballet, and music classes. She also made and followed a daily schedule and routine for my daughter. She truly made everything seem so easy. Angelica also helped with light household chores. Angelica was a wonderful nanny with great work ethics. She is caring, passionate, responsible, kind, and gentle. She is reliable and I have always trusted her to make the best decisions for my daughter and I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have Angelica as my nanny. I continue to use her as a nanny when my husband and I go out for the night. I am certain Angelica would be an amazing nanny to your family. She would be a great help to your children and family.

Icilma has been our babysitter for close to 4 years. She started with us when we had a 2 year old and a newborn. We have since added another baby and she intermittently cares for all 3, but primarily stays at home with the baby. Like most of us, I was nervous about leaving my newborn to return to work-but immediately felt comfortable with Icilma. She is well-versed in the newborn language and care. She takes the utmost caution and care with my children. I am never felt that they weren’t receiving excellent care (and love) from her. They are always safe with her. She prefers to work with infants and my little one has been on the receiving end of her care and it shows. When she leaves for the evening, he runs across the apartment to tell her goodbye. Icilma is attentive and always present. She picks up on his development, communication clues, addresses changes in his eating and bowel habits, bathes him, and takes him to story time and play dates. Icilma is initially quiet but soon comes out of her shell and has become a very active member of our family. We are having to make changes due to a change in my job, but would otherwise keep her close and still l hope call her for babysitting as our kids ADORE her. I would be happy to field any questions about her. She will be fabulous for the next little baby she attends too. She prefers not to be in a house with animals.

She is principled and health conscious and never missed a day of work in 9 years! She is fun and playful with the kids- she related well to all 4 of my kids at all different ages. 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!

Finding the right nanny is tough. My husband and I searched for months, and interviewed many before we found the right person. But we are glad we took our time, because Margaret has been perfect for our family. She began working with us when our oldest daughter was one and I was pregnant with twin girls. After the twins were born, we were quickly overwhelmed by having three children under the age of two. But Margaret was unphased. She has been a warm, reliable, and unassuming caregiver for all three of our girls. She brings out the best in them, is fully present, and cares for them with patience I envy. We especially appreciate that she is kind and loving, but always follows our lead and preserves our role as the parents. Our children do not watch tv when they are with Margaret - she doesn’t even know to use it - and I’ve never seen on her phone in their presence. Margaret has had two sick days in seven years, been on time literally every day except for one (MTA delay), and is completely trustworthy. She regularly housesits for us, and twice gave us money back when we accidentally overpaid her. Since our girls have now comfortably transitioned to elementary school, we no longer need full time help. We have been very lucky to have her in our lives, and look forward to keeping her as a friend. She was with the family she helped before us for three years, and with the family before that for thirteen years. When I checked her references, one father mentioned that she called each of his children every year on their birthday until they graduated from high school. I look forward to our girls getting those calls in the coming years. She is a permanent legal resident (green card holder), and currently works on the books.

I would like to give a heartfelt recommendation for Charlene Pompelis, who has been with us for a year and a half. She is everything you could possibly want in someone who is in charge of the health, mind and character development of your child. Charlene is a nurturer who gently guides children towards enriching and productive play. With my daughter Lucy, she interacts with puzzles and coloring, games and outdoor activities. She makes suggestions about fun, kid-friendly events in the area so that where I might be lacking as a planner, she kindly fills in. Best of all, she has made friends with many of my daughter’s friends’ parents and caretakers, so that playdates are arranged often and easily – a true gift for an only child. There are days I find myself sitting at my desk at work wishing I could do what they’re doing! All the fundamentals are there too, but I should state them here, since you, reader, are getting to know Charlene through this letter. She is 100% reliable, flexible, fair, strict but loving, and present. She cooks healthy food (or as healthy as I manage to buy), discourages sugary snacks, gets our daughter to bed on time, and never lets her watch devices or TV, a standard even I fall short of. Lucy adores her. She draws pictures of her, gives gifts to her, and loves Charlene like a second mother. I value her advice and opinion, and it’s been a blessing to have such a good mother as a sounding board and advocate. Which brings me to the strongest evidence of Charlene’s good nature: her own daughter. She and her husband have raised an absolutely lovely girl named Mayah. She’s studious and smart, optimistic and well-mannered, patient and good-natured like her mother. She is everything we hope our daughter will become. I’d be happy to answer any specific questions: 917-576-8893, but I cannot say with enough conviction that Charlene is one of the best people I know and any child would be lucky to know her.

Jacqueline has over 10 years experience working as a nanny for families in Brooklyn and the entire Tri-State Area. We are happy to provide references for Jacqueline at anytime. She has been with us for 8 years and raised our daughter Hayley like her own with an unbelievable amount of love and compassion, patience, trustworthiness, reliability, flexibility, adaptability, understanding, good communication skills and thoughtful care. We recently moved to Richmond, VA and would love to find her a good home. Jacqueline Is that perfect balance of nurturing and extremely hard-working. The woman doesn't sit still. She did all of Hayley's laundry, kept her room and play areas tidy, prepared all of her healthy lunches and dinners, organized playdates on her own, and took her outside whenever possible (museums, parks, karate, dance classes, music lessons etc.) From six months to 8 years, Jacqueline has been great at every developmental stage and focused on Hayley’s growth, e.g. talking to her, singing songs, reading books, and teaching her animals, colors, letters and numbers. Jacqueline manages to get her dressed/eating/napping with no Issues. Her happy demeanor Is such a joy to be around, always has a pleasant smile, warm and welcoming personality throughout. We love her like family and miss her terribly!

We are heartbroken to lose our wonderful Nanny Betty as we move out of the city. She has been with us since our daughter was 3 months old (currently 19 months old) and they absolutely love each other. She works for us 10 hours a day or more, punctual, always willing to stay late or come early, and has not once ever called out sick. She has always kept our daughter social taking her to classes and scheduling play dates for her almost every day which was important to me. She does not ever put the tv on her for (unless she is sick) which allows me to let her have some guilt free screen time when I get home from work. She does our daughters laundry for us once a week, changes her sheets, changing pad, empties her diaper genie, keeps her toys and common areas tidy and clean and has always gone above and beyond without being asked. She was an integral part of my transition back to work and could not imagine having done it without her. I truly can’t say enough about how great she is and happy to speak to anyone who might interested. She would a wonderful addition to anyone’s family.

Yolande is an experienced, reliable, trustworthy nanny with 20+ years experience. She was always on time, never called in sick (never asked for time off except for a dr appt) and was always pleasant. The kids ran to the door every morning she rang the bell. She asked the kids thought-provoking questions while they ate lunch; rocked the little ones to sleep. Allowed them to socialize but never saw play dates as a \'break\' for her...she was always very attentive. A stranger approached me on the street and said she saw Yolande with my kids earlier that day and that if she had kids Yolande would be the nanny she would want looking after them. She comes from a large family in Trinidad and moved to the NYC area 20 years ago and has been caring for children; she was with us for 3 years until we moved and a family of three boys for 8 years before us. There is no drama with Yolande-she is very easy to deal with and any family would be lucky to have her as their nanny.

Parent Reference
Having Didi as our nanny for 4 years was more like having an incredibly organized, intelligent and loving family member care for our children as opposed to a “typical” nanny. She is young, vivacious and creative - children respond so quickly to her energy and warmth. She started with our family when we moved out of the city and my son was two years old (we had another good nanny when we lived in the city so I have a solid point of comparison when I say that Didi is truly on another level.) She has since also cared for my daughter from infancy. Didi is equally adept at following your own directions in perfect detail or initiating her own plans/schedule for the kids if that is what you prefer. In the suburbs she was responsible for driving my children to school, classes, playdates etc - she is always on time with a smile on her face and excited to spend time with the kids. She makes friends with other nannies easily and can arrange playdates, seek out the best classes etc. Didi is extremely careful when it comes to the safety of the children, she is simply NOT the nanny at the park on a cell phone - to her the phone is a distraction and it’s just not safe. I loved that I never had to worry about her focus as it was entirely on my kids at all times (let’s be honest, she was probably watching them way more carefully than I did!) She barely missed a day of work in 4 years, she’s very health conscious and very neat - her responsibilities included the kid’s laundry, preparing meals for the kids and cleaning up afterward: the kitchen was always spotless after meals! The level of trust and comfort you will have with Didi watching your children is invaluable and allows you to focus on work (and play! - she also stayed with our kids while my husband and I went away!) Didi has moved to Brooklyn so we would love to help find her a wonderful NYC-based family who will enjoy having her care for their kids as much as we have.

Fatima has been a nanny to our children who are 6 and 10 years old. Recently, I decided not to go back to work to care for my elderly parents and no longer need childcare, so would love to find a new family for Fatima as soon as possible. She speaks English and French fluently. When I first met Fatima, she came early for the interview and even had a resume prepared. I was impressed from the very beginning! Here is what I love most about her: • She is RESPONSIBLE. She leaves her own children to come and care for ours and is always on time. We live at a very busy intersection and have to take public transportation to and from school. She always makes sure they are safe crossing the streets and on the bus. If there is a delay getting to or from school, she always notifies us. • She is KIND. She treats our children as her own and is so patient with my children, even if they are having a bad day. • She is WILLING TO LEARN NEW THINGS. I gave Fatima many new recipes and she learned them all, even though they were very different from the food she prepares at her home. The kids have a lot of extracurricular activities and she is always able to figure out the best way to drop them off and pick them up, without me having to give her detailed instructions. • She is FLEXIBLE. I sometimes needed to change the schedule at the last minute and she always accommodated our needs whenever she was able to, even if it inconvenienced her family. She has also picked up our children’s friends when their own parents were running late. • She is RESPECTFUL. Fatima respects our family traditions and culture though they are different from hers. She always speaks respectfully to us, our children, and everyone else in our lives. (When my elderly parents were visiting, she helped them with anything they needed without even asking.) Fatima is a hard worker who never complains. She is loving, kind, and dedicated. Any family would be lucky to have her.

We\\'re moving to Dallas this Spring and would love to find her a good home. Maria is that perfect balance of nurturing and extremely hard-working. The woman doesn\\'t sit still. She did all of Charlie\\'s laundry, kept her room and play areas tidy, prepared all of her healthy lunches and dinners, made new friends for Charlie in the neighborhood, organized countless playdates on her own, and took her outside whenever possible (museums, parks, classes etc.) From six months to 2.5 years, Maria has been great at every developmental stage and incredibly focused on Charlie’s growth, e.g., talking to her non-stop (in Spanish per our preference), playing with puzzles, singing songs, reading books, creating art projects, and teaching her animals, colors, letters and numbers. Unlike Charlie’s parents, Maria never resorts to screen time and manages to get her dressed/eating/napping/out the door without a fight. When we both go out of town, she spends the night at our apartment with Charlie, providing us with so much peace of mind. Her happy demeanor is such a joy to be around, we love her like family and will miss her terribly!

Vashti has been a nanny to my 10 month old son since he was a newborn and has been taking care of babies, toddlers and young kids for the past 18 years. I was referred to her by a very close family friend who was her son's and daughter's nanny for four years and she comes from a long track record with families who have recommended her. Due to my current work circumstances I have to switch my son to daycare and I would love to help find another new home for Vashti to work with as she has truly been amazing. Vashti has been a life saver for me. I am a single working mom and having Vashti take care of my son was the biggest blessing I could have asked for. She cooks for my son, takes care of all his laundry, I come home to a spotless apartment every evening (even tidys up and cleans my dishes!). My home is an oasis to come home to because of her and my son LOVES her. He is so smiley and happy to see her every morning. A great thing about Vashti is she always take the parents lead but also will give her input and opinion. I loved how respectful she always was. Above all it was very important for me for my son to be taken care of by someone who not only has experience, but is kind with a good heart. I can stress this enough because Vashti is SO KIND, has zero attitude and is just so pleasant to be around. Very calming and always in a smiling and positive mood. I wanted my son to be around a good person and I was lucky to have found that person in Vashti. Vashti is always on time and works 8am-6:00PM for me but is flexible with her hours. Many times I was a little late home and she was ok with it and would even stay an extra hour last minute when something came up at work. Vashti takes my son to classes during the week and on a walk or to the park at least once a day outside (more in the warmer months). She also made friends with other nanny's in the neighborhood so my son had someone to go on playdates with during the week. She has my son a great schedule, feeds him, makes sure he naps, always playing and reading books to him and keeping on top of his development and milestones. I really cannot recommend her enough, you would be so lucky to have her taking care of your child(children).

TWIN EXPERT Jennipher has been caring for our twin boys for the past 2+ years, and will be available to start with a new family in March. Having cared for 8(!) sets of twins, Jennipher has expertise and confidence that have been so helpful to us as first time parents. She started with us when our boys were 4 months old and put them on a schedule, took them to classes, organized playdates, and stimulated their brains and bodies with age-appropriate books, songs, and activities. She loves to cook, and has exposed my children to many different foods and flavors. They are good eaters because of her. Jennipher has helped us through so many transitions – solid foods, nap transitions, pacifier elimination – and has made them all a breeze. She’s very proactive about the kids’ development and ensures we’re always challenging them by learning new things (colors, ABCs, numbers) and/or developing physically (crawling, walking, jumping, etc). She is a U.S. citizen and able to travel, and she is also able to stay late or sleep over on occasion. She is outgoing, caring, trustworthy, friendly, honest, cheerful, and smart. We are moving out of the city, which is why she’ll soon be available. While most of her nanny experience has been with twins she is also willing to care for just one child.

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

My daughter got into a pre-school/daycare at lot sooner than we had anticipated, which was good, but it meant that we didn't have the hours for our wonderful nanny any longer. Katacha had been with us since this nervous first-time mom went back to work 2 short months after my daughter was born. Katacha was precisely the reassuring, stable, calm and loving presence our family needed. She constantly gave me updates when L was young, and took her to the park, playground, play groups, library and everywhere you can imagine! Katacha also cooks way better than I do (not that that's hard...). Most importantly, L's face lights up every time Katacha walks in the door. There are no words for how much that means to me. Katacha is still the only person I can leave L with, without L crying or fussing - even Daddy doesn't rate as highly! Katacha lives in Brooklyn and commuted to the UWS and most recently Westchester(!), without fail. She is dependable, loyal and conscientious. She can work with kids of all ages, multiples or singles, full or part-time. She's been a nanny for 20 years and would be the answer for any mom. All I want is to find her a wonderful family who deserves her. If you or anyone you know is looking, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Our wonderful nanny, Charmaine, had been caring for my son since he was 3 months old. My son loves her and always gives her a big hug when she comes in after not seeing her for the weekend. Charmaine is extremely trustworthy and responsible. She took the initiative to connect with other nannies and families in the area so that my son could have play dates and socialize with other children daily. She takes him to classes, reads to him, plays, sings and dances with him, cleans his toys and does his laundry. When he's sick she gives him the extra comfort he needs. She prepares his meals and ensures we keep to a schedule as much as my son allows since he's a stubborn one :) Charmaine is always on time, and able to stay late/come early and be flexible with her hours when we needed her to. We wish we could keep her, but not only have our needs changed, the commute for her to watch our son is sometimes up to 2 hours each way. We would love to help Charmaine find another family to help look after and care for their child/children that is closer to home for her. Her next family will be lucky to have her!

My work situation has changed and we’ve made the tough decision to part ways with our son’s wonderful nanny, Norma. Norma has been a godsend to our family, we could not have made it through these first 1.5 years without her - she is positive, kind, loving and thoughtful. She and our son have formed such a special, loving bond and she’s helped shape him into the happy, playful kid he’s become. Norma is very reliable and flexible, always on time and available to stay late with very little notice. She has befriended a number of nannies in our neighborhood, regularly taking our son for playdates and library/playground hangouts, always keeping days active, social and entertaining. And amidst the chaos of running after our active little guy, she leaves our home very tidy (often cleaner than when she arrives) every day. We couldn’t recommend Norma more, and hope to help her find a new family to be a part of. She has worked as a nanny for more than 20 years, and has a lot of experience in neighborhoods on the West Side of Manhattan (Tribeca, West Village where we live, Chelsea and UWS). Thank you, Emilie
