Nannies/Babysitters

Anyone can post here if you have/need something… look at the bottom under comments for recent posts, some great ones! Also, if you see something on here that you or someone you know thinks should be taken off the blog, just let me know.  I’m happy to help however I can to make taking care of our children a little easier!

Please try to have your friends post to the blog. I don’t want to bother people with so many emails. But many people tell me they appreciate the emails… so I’m stuck.

I want to help so I hope someone finds what they needs here….

I have loved helping people find nannies and nannies/babysitters find nice families on the UWS.  I want to shine a spotlight on my friend, Noa Mintz.  In the past week or so, Noa (age 15) has become a national role model for young entrepreneurs.  Please google her name and her nanny agency to help find the perfect caregiver – locally!

Copy this to read and see the national TV converge of this ambitious and sincere young lady.  Noa Mintz Nannies by Noa

Our full time babysitter, Mona, has been with us for 9 years, since our first child was born.  Our 3 children (ages 9, 6 & 6), are now in school for a full day and we are looking to find another family in search of a part-time babysitter for mornings and lunchtime before she meets our kids after school.

We are also flexible and could do full-days Mon, Wed and Friday, if someone need full time Tues and Thurs.

About Mona:  She is experienced, professional, warm, caring and fun.  She is incredibly organized, proactive and energetic when it comes to the children’s needs, including setting up play dates and activities, keeping track of the kids’ schedules and effortlessly moving the kids to and from activities.  Donna is also completely comfortable keeping a kosher kitchen, and keeps the kids’ space organized and the entire apartment neat and tidy.  She has an easy-going can-do attitude and will help out with household tasks, such as grocery shopping.  Please call Julie  at 917-841-5838 or email me at juliegansackerman@gmail.com

I am looking for a cleaning lady. Once a week to clean and do laundry. The job will be nearly a full day but depends on the speed to get all the work done.  Many high-end materials (marble, flooring, countertops, Viking stove etc.) All eco-friendly products used.  Attention to detail is important (sorting children’s clothes, folding and putting away items where they belong.  Organizing experience a plus. Much previous experience required.  References will be called.  We would like to welcome someone into our home for a long-term working relationship.  Only serious people should contact me.  Please call or text (917) 232-1165

Our most caring and competent nanny of two years who we all absolutely adore is too good to say good-bye to even though our child is in school 8:45 – 2:45 daily.  As such, we are hoping to do a nanny share with another UWS family. We are flexible with the split arrangement.   We could do full-days Tues and Thurs only or noon+ 2 – 3 days a week if that is best.  Please let me know if this is of interest.  We are looking to make this change asap and by mid-Nov.  Contact m@bonugli.me or text to 917-318-8187.

My nanny is currently looking for a morning position.  She works for my family in the afternoons and has been with us for 5 years.  Both of my children are in school, so we only need Jam after school now and would love to find a family that needs a wonderful nanny in the mornings.  Jam is an amazing, caring, organized person and we are so lucky to have her in our lives.  She is trustworthy, clean, kind and wonderful with children.  She goes above and beyond for the families she works for and is someone that you can truly depend on.  She is always punctual and never calls in sick.  She is truly a special person and will be an asset to any family she works for.  If you are interested, please contact me (Courtney) at 917-747-0205 or email me at cpk2079@gmail.com.  Thank you!

I find myself writing that email which I’ve received many, many times over the last 5 1/2 years, but I thankfully never needed.  Now that our two kids will be away from the apartment most of the day with camp and school, we no longer need a full time nanny and are looking to help Nella find a new family.

Nella began working with us 5 1/2 years ago when my son was 6 months old and I was going back to work.  She’s helped us through many transitions along the way: solid foods, napping, walking, baby number 2,  the terrible twos, potty training, discipline, school, camp, etc….  She is always calm, caring and consistent.  She has always been flexible.  In all her time with us, I think she called out sick 2 times and no one does an “Elsa braid” for a wiggly three year-old better on the Upper West Side.
Please feel free to reach out to me to talk further.  Also, please forward to anyone who may be looking for someone.

As of March 20, 2014: (Many people have been talking with me lately about needing or sharing their care giver. Please post/look at the end of this page.

Our weekend nanny whom we really like and are sad to part ways with is looking for a weekday job. She is excellent with my girls and the only issue is that she wants a mon-Friday not Friday-Monday job (what she was doing with us). Most of my friends are settled with their help but if you know anyone who is looking, I highly recommend Rusella (347) 885-2945 and can provide a detailed reference.

(Valerie’s note, before Abby, Rusella worked with another friend of mine. They connected through this blog.   She’s great!)

Our beloved nanny of 4 1/2 years is moving on now that our work schedules are more flexible and we do not need a lot of caregiver hours. Dale is responsible, honest, reliable, and prompt, and has been an integral part of our 7 yr old daughter’s life. She is warm and patient with our daughter, who has special needs, and always has a positive attitude. She has also played a critical role in getting her to eat a variety of foods, a skill which eludes the rest of us. She is also flexible with her schedule and has never refused a request to stay late or arrive early. We recommend Dale without reservation.

I am happy to discuss Dale further with you. Please call or text at (917) 558-3964 and/or email at arlevlev@gmail.com.

Many of you know Natia, the nanny who helped take care of the boys when we lived in the city.  Natia worked for our family for 3 years, starting when Chase was about 2, before Lance was born.  She is honest, trustworthy, reliable, professional, likable, caring and lovely.  She is young and energetic, but has many years of solid experience working with infants, toddlers and young children.  She can follow direction, yet has sound judgment of her own.  She speaks excellent English, is a U.S. Citizen and can drive.  Aside from excelling at all aspects of childcare, she provides a stimulating environment full of amazing arts and crafts, reading and play.  We travelled extensively with Natia and she is always a pleasure to be around.  We only said good-bye to Natia because we moved to Scarsdale and needed live-in housekeeping with minimal childcare once the kids were in school full-time.  But, we still keep in touch.  Please pass this on and, of course, I am happy to speak with anyone who is interested in learning more about Natia.  Natia’s cell phone is (646) 549-7813.  My cell is (212) 380-6358.
Thanks!

I am reaching out to you as our Babysitter, Rachel, the Israeli/Ethiopian lady is looking for a full time job.

As Rozie started Day care this past September, the hours we can offer Rachel are very limited. So sadly, she needs to find a full time job. She has been with us, almost 4 years. She is an amazing babysitter, with a real touch for children. Very Empathic but also balanced in her approach in terms of healthy limit setting. She speaks Hebrew of course, and that is another plus. We are recommending her without reservations!!!!

Our number is 646 352 2341 and hers is 201 737 4542. We would love to help her find a full time job and thought that maybe you can facilitate, using your network and connections.

Dear Friends,After almost eleven years, my children have outgrown our wonderful nanny, Carmen and we can no longer provide her with a fulltime position.  Carmen has been with our family since my oldest was 2 months old.  Carmen is a wonderful, loving, attentive, hardworking person.  When they were babies, Carmen was tireless in her efforts, from helping me get them on feeding schedules (and coaxing my reluctant eater to finish her meals) to successful potty-training.  Carmen’s priority is always the children.   My children have benefited greatly from her gentle and nurturing care.  She is diligent in everything she does and works hard to makes sure the children are happy and well.  She is truly a very special person with solid family values, a sweet nature and a ready smile.I am happy to speak further with anyone who may be interested.   My cell is 917-608-7272 and home is 212-861-9597.   You can also reach me at caroline_magnus@yahoo.com.  Carmen can be reached directly at 917-841-2306.Please forward my message to anyone you know who may be interested as we would love to see her working for a nice family.Thank you,

Subject:Our nanny is available

Hi All,

As some of you know, Judah and I have decided it’s time for us to try our hand at parenting without the safety net of Sharda, our amazing full-time nanny. For those of you who know Sharda, I don’t need to say anything more. For those of you who don’t… Sharda is a gem and a source of light in this world. She is the nanny — forget nanny, person — you dream about. We are of course really nervous about this transition, but would be consoled if we knew that Sharda were happy with her next step. We’ve drafted the blurb below. We would really appreciate it if you would circulate it to friends/family who might be looking for a full-time nanny. If you are on neighborhood or other list serves, it would be great if you would post this there too.
Thanks so much,
Shelley & Judah

Do Kids Raised by Nannies Really Turn Out OK?

By Renee Septimus at 12:42 pm

nanniesThe NY Times Magazine cover article this past weekend was called, The Other Mothers of Manhattan.” In my opinion, the photos were romanticized and at the same time, bleak, and the essay was trite and superficial. Well, you want to know what I really think, right?

Yet again we read a piece from the points of view of the mothers and thenannies. What always seems to be missing in these articles is the point of view of the children, arguably the most important actors in this story. The grown–up children, I mean–people who were raised with nannies, who by now have some perspective on the experience. Wouldn’t it be interesting and important to hear from them?

Or, I should say, us. (click above to read more)

HI Valerie
 
We are looking to find our amazing nanny, Pam, a morning position so we can keep her for the afternoons (when our daughter gets out of school).  Pam is available Monday through Friday from 8am to approximately 1pm.  There is flexibility on both her start date and the times that Pam could work for another family.  She is available starting now but could start in the future as well.Pam is an absolutely incredible person and nanny. She is loving, caring, warm, honest, smart, fun/enthusiastic, hard-working, experienced and reliable.

Pam has it all but what makes her so special is her loving way with our 3 year old daughter. Pam treats our daughter like she is her own child and she always puts our daughter first!
Pam is recognized by other parents, teachers, her peers and children as being a terrific individual – we are constantly told how incredible she is not only with our daughter but our daughters’ friends as well.  She makes every one of the children she is in contact with feel loved, taken care of and most importantly safe and secure.Pam is both terrific at completing tasks that are asked of her as well as taking initiative in planning outings for our daughter: from going to the museum or library, having picnics in Central Park, completing arts and crafts projects, to reading books, doing puzzles, baking, and visiting the many different playgrounds around the neighborhood.  She has kept our daughter busy with all that NYC has to offer.  She has made it easy for us to trust her instincts and to take charge of extra curricular for our daughter.Not only does she excel at the playtime activities, she is a vital part of our daughter’s education.  From helping our daughter learn the five senses to the name of the President, Pam is able to keep our daughter interested in the world around her and makes learning fun.

Lastly, Pam is very reliable. She has never called in sick and she is always on time. She always makes sure that the house is in order when she leaves for the day, including cleaning up the my daughters room, cleaning up the kitchen and having my daughter bathed and fed by the time she leaves.
Our family considers Pam a true partner in raising our daughter and we want her to find another family she can help make a difference for.  She 100% respects the parents’ wishes (ie schedules, diet, etc) but she takes ownership in her job and offers the most valuable advice.    
 
Pam is someone you want to have around – for you and your children. She is a great person and teacher. She has a very big heart. She is a great listener. She is truly special.
Please feel free to contact me or Pam if you are interested.

Hi Moms,

I am posting the note below for a good friend of mine. However, I will add that I have known this nanny for the last 5 years and she is absolutely fantastic!!

 

Please see my friends note below:

 

HI-  Our wonderful nanny has been with us for over 5 years and is adored by our kids as well as the parents of all of their friends, but as our kids are getting older, we now only need her part time and are looking to share her with another family.

 

We are seeking a well suited fellow Upper West Side family who needs about 20 hours a week of having a nanny. Our nanny will be available to be your nanny in any hours of your choosing in the time blocks of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9-3. Fridays she is available to you the entire day or any part of it should you wish to have it.

 

Her hourly price is $15-17/hour and we would like to guarantee her $300-350/week for each of our family’s 20 hours. If you are interested in discussing this , please contact me at talybear2002@yahoo.com.  This arrangement if agreed to be a fit  post interview with her would be flexible to start as soon as August 1. Thanks in advance!  TR

I have a two fold nanny need.

We are at that point when our beloved Sandy who has been the nanny to
Skye and Dylan for 5 years is no longer needed by us. She has been part
time for the last year while still being paid FT and we want to get the
word out there to help her find a new FT job while also finding
ourselves a PT person for 4-7pm 4days a week. (not fridays)

Of course, the ideal would be to find someone who needs a PT person from
9-3 or 9-4 (monday-thursday and all day friday) so that we could keep
Sandy for late afternoons but I dont know a lot of people who have that
need…..do you?

So we are looking for a late day person 4x/week and of course want to
get the word out about Sandy….

thanks, Taly russell@glocap.com

* She is from St Lucia. She is married, in her late 30’s with a 13
year old daughter and lives in Brooklyn. We have had her as our live-out
nanny since May 2007 right before our second child was born in June. She
has *maybe* had all of a grand total of  5 sick days in all of that
time. Im not going to lie- we are spoiled by that!
* Her English is excellent and crisp. She gets down on the floor
and plays with a child as if she is a child as well. Kids love her. She
is active, fun, creative and patient. She is loving and genuine and a
true “mensch”.  She respects all religions and doesn’t impose personal
opinions on any one.

* Her nanny job prior to working with us with a family on long
island. She had excellent references from them as well
* She is not yet a US citizen but is in the process of applying
for a green card as she just got married to her long time boyfriend.
* She is great with babies as well as children of all ages. We
have firsthand experience with her in both scenarios.

* In an ideal world- she stays with us part time and we find a
well suited nanny share situation for moving forward. This is the #1
route we are looking to explore.  Our kids are in school all day from
8-3:45. On Mondays and Thursdays – we would not need her to start at our
place until 4:30 latest. ON Tuesdays and Wednesdays we need her from
3:45 and on.  On Fridays she is completely free as we don’t need her
Fridays at all & she is totally available.

* One way of looking at it- is : She is available Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday from 9-3:30 and Fridays all day.  Or you can get
more specific with slightly different end times- M/Thurs- 4pm and T/W-
330pm.

* We are also away on most holidays outside of the city and we
don’t take her with us so you would have the ability to have her on most
holidays as well as long holiday weekends. I know that could be a big
plus in a nanny share scenario as usually both families want the holiday
weekend options. We don’t need it 90% of the time!

* Additionally- We are looking to make this a permanent schedule
vs a constantly shifting one. We feel that its best for all to have a
measure of consistency for the basic schedule while being flexible for
the moving part occasions.

* We could start this as soon as July and as late as September
with the right pairing of family.

If you feel that these are times that could work on your end & you would
like to get a conversation going-  let me know !

Dear friends-I hope this email finds you well. Apologies for the group email. I am once
again in search for a babysitter and a nanny. As most of you know and
again I am sorry if you don’t know yet, we are expecting twins in August.
Life will be upside down and we will need all the help we can get :-)Our fabulous babysitter is taking July and August off and I am in need of
someone who can help me for 10-15 hrs/week for those two months. It should
be someone with a few years experience, trustworthy, active, outgoing and
reliable. We would also need her to stay with Maximilian should I need to
go to the hospital earlier.Secondly, we are looking for a full-time or part-time nanny beginning mid
September who has at least a few years of experience with twins. Again, we
are looking for someone outgoing/active, reliable and knowledgable.Please let me know if you know someone who would be interested in the
above. I really appreciate your help!!!!Wishing everyone an amazing summer!

Subject: best babysitter EVER available starting 6/18

Hi,

Hope everyone is doing well.

Wanted to spread the word that our WONDERFUL amazing fabulous
babysitter (i seriously can’t say enough nice things about her) will
be available for work starting the week of 6/18
as we are moving to Florida or else I would never give her up 🙂

Her name is Karolina Koguc and she is looking to work Monday, Tues,
Thursday, and Friday full days (my friend Erica uses her on
Wednesdays)

She has been with us for over a year, since I was pregnant with Logan
who is now almost 16 months old (I can’t believe it!!)
and has been fabulous with both Logan and Jaden (my now 5 year old)
She is more than just a babysitter, she helps me with everything – she
does the boys laundry, keeps their rooms neat (even makes their beds),
cleans up after them, feeds them, drop-off/pick up at school, takes
the kids to classes, etc etc

She has experience with all age children, but is especially interested
in babies/toddlers – in addition to babysitting she also volunteers at
Lenox Hill nursery AND works in the nursery with newborns at a place
upstate where women recover after they have their babies

I would be more than happy to speak to anyone interested about her
further – please pass along to anyone you might know that is looking –
they really will be the luckiest to find her!

Her email is kkoguc@gmail.com and if anyone wants to call me to
discuss my cell is 917.922.9869

XOXO

Subject: ONE OF A KIND NANNY AVAILABLE
As many of you know, our family will be moving to Mamaroneck, NY at the end of June.  Unfortunately, our nanny of 6 years, Paula Yearwood, will not be coming along.  However, our loss will be someone else’s gain.   For those of you who already know Paula, you are well aware of her warm, energetic, fun, loving and engaging personality.  She has been part of our family since our daughter was 3 months old and is turning 6 years old next month.  Paula also helped to raise our son, now 2 ½, so she has experience caring for newborns, toddlers, preschoolers and young children.  Along the way, she has become a part of our family and gained the love from our children and respect in our community.
Over the years, Paula has always put our children’s safety first.  After that, here are some other roles that she has played:  school drop-offs/pick-ups, liaison with school teachers, attending dance recitals, playing in the park, arranging play-dates, reading, singing, visiting museums, caring for them when they are sick, teaching them good manners, bathing them, preparing meals, cleaning, helping to potty train, etc.
If you know of someone who is interested please feel free to pass this email along.  I am more than happy to serve as a reference and can be contacted during the day at (914) 872-3622.
 
April 21,2012:
Our wonderful nanny has been with us for 6 years and we hope she will be with us for at least another 6 years but as our kids are getting older, we don’t necessarily need her full-time, all-the-time.  It is not definitive but if we can find the right family and the right situation, we would like to explore sharing her with another family.   This summer our kids will be in camp till 3:30pm and 5pm.  If anyone is interested in potentially having our nanny come to you for the summer months 2 days a week from 8am-3pm, please contact me at marnieblack@yahoo.com.  Should the situation work out, we’d also be happy to explore extending the share beyond the summer months.  Thanks in advance.

My daughter, Abigail will be going to Day Camp for the 7 weeks this summer in late June, July and August.  Berta, as some of you know, is Abi’s nanny, and a very important part of Abi’s life, even more so, due to Neil’s passing nearly 6 months ago.  She is seeking a childcare gig on the UWS, ideally with someone who might want her to continue into the fall part-time or full-time.  By being on the UWS, she can stay in Abi’s (and my) life, do some periodic babysitting, if not more with Abi.  So, please don’t hesitate to send this out to UWSiders you know who are or will soon be in need of a nanny.

Thanks much!

Cc: Ana Johnson <ana.sawicki@gmail.com>, Brandon Johnson <johnson.brandon@gmail.com>Hi all,As you may know, my family is planning to move to CT this spring.  While we are really excited for this new phase of our life, we are incredibly sad that our nanny, Dolly, will not be able to continue working with us in CT.  I wanted to reach out to all of you to pass along my strongest recommendation for Dolly and to ask that you forward along this email to anyone that might be looking for a nanny to look after one or two children anytime after late April. While Dolly has most recently worked on the Upper East Side, she worked in Brooklyn Heights for 6 years and prior to that, worked on both the Upper West and Upper East Side.Dolly has worked with us since our older son, now 2.5 years old, was one month old and since April has also cared for younger son, now age 10 months.  Her responsibilities included childcare and light housekeeping, and she exceeded expectations on both.  On a daily basis, Dolly prepared meals and fed both kids, arranged playdates, took the kids to the playground or for walks, story time, played in the apartment, and bathed both children.  She also nap-trained both, helped both learn to crawl, and with my older son (as my younger is still too young), Dolly taught him songs, hundreds of words (he knows the difference between a macaw and a toucan!), how to complete small puzzles, and many other developmental skills.   While Dolly has a great deal of childcare experience, Dolly respects and follows the childcare goals and values that we set out and will also offer us advice when appropriate.  For us, it was always important that our children get social exposure to other children and Dolly has been very outgoing and sought out playdates with many other nannies – one of my favorite things was to come home to a room full of children playing and singing.  Dolly is also incredibly responsible and trustworthy. In the 2.5 years that she has worked with us, Dolly has never been more than 5-10 minutes late on 1-2 occasions.What I also continue to be amazed about is how Dolly can care for my two children for 10.5 hours per day and make it seem so easy. When I come home, the apartment is spotless, the children are bathed and in their pj’s, and all the bottles and cups are washed and put away.  I’m in awe of what she is able to do. Our children are happy little boys and I know that she has made a great impact on their lives.Dolly truly loves our children and we are so thankful that our sons were able to have such a loving and caring woman in their life.  We are so sad that Dolly will not be able to continue working with us, but we hope that another family will have the opportunity to benefit from the wonderful things that Dolly brings to caring for children.If you or anyone you know would like to get an introduction to Dolly, please feel free to email me (ana.sawicki@gmail.com) and I will provide you Dolly’s contact information.Thank you,Ana Johnson

She has been taking care of my son for the past year (since he was 4 months old) and is absolutely amazing. She has never once called out sick or been late. She is extremely loving and caring and has helped our son be confident, social and loving. She read, did puzzles, went to classes, went to the park and to the children’s museum with my son every day. She is currently looking for either a part time job or full time job and I would be more than willing to speak with anyone interested. I can not put into words how much we love her and hope that we can find her a new family to be part of. She helps around the house and always gives 100% of herself everyday to help in anyway needed.

Babysitter studying child psychology! Vanessa sounds marvelous! Natalie highly recommends her.

Hi Parents.

My Name is Vanessa Mendez. I have been working as a nanny for several years, and am currently taking care of two three-year-old boys who I have been with since infancy. Unfortunately, the family is relocating to Philadelphia, and therefore, I am looking for a new full-time position. I love what I do and very much enjoy all aspects of child-care and the uniqueness of each age group. I am in my last year of college studying child psychology. As a nanny, I strive to gain a deep understanding of the cognitive, behavioral, and dynamic traits specific to the children I care for and use this knowledge to create effective, creative structures and activities. I am a hard worker who takes my professional responsibilities seriously and puts safety first. I am calm, caring, warm and reliable. I believe that energy, patience, communication and love are essential ingredients in the caretaker-child relationship. I try to involve the children I work with in dramatic play, age-appropriate language and math skills, reading, art, music, athletics, and any other activities the parents deem appropriate.  I have experience with Early Intervention protocols and developmental issues. I am fluent in English and Spanish, and have extensive knowledge of New York and its child friendly opportunities. In addition, I am adept at fixing healthy meals for all ages, and will do laundry and help around the house.

Great references available upon request!

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Subject: Fw: Fantastic nanny available asap for wknds, full time 9/1

Hi everyone-

I am hoping someone will be lucky enough to need, or know someone who needs, a full time nanny and can pass this along. A family will be so grateful and fortunate to have my former nanny Yvonette. She will become available to start immediately on weekends and full time for September 1. She would prefer to work with one baby.

Yvonette is intelligent, proactive and extremely responsible. It’s obvious to me that Yvonette truly takes pride in helping to raise young children. She had several long term nanny jobs before coming to us. Yvonette has infant CPR training, has previously worked as a baby nurse (and has certification as one) and is a certified nurse’s assistant (CNA) . She is also a legal U.S resident.

Not only is she an excellent caregiver, but also, she worked on educating my daughter, trying to teach her to speak as well as helping her through the various milestones (walking, crawling etc.). She is not one to ever sit around, my daughter and Yvonette were constantly out; going for a walks, going to the park, storytime at the library, local kids events, or on playdates at neighboring apartments. She enjoyed making meals for my daughter and encouraging her to try new things. You never have to remind Yvonette to do something more than once and she always went above and beyond what was expected. I came home each night to a happy, well rested baby and a tidy home.

I could go on and on about her and would happy to give more information to anyone who is interested. I hope that even if you are not interested, you can pass it on to someone who may be. A family will be so grateful and fortunate to have Yvonette.

Please have anyone that is interested email me at steinsh2@yahoo.com to arrange a time to speak.

Thank you,

Sara Richman (former Tower 67 resident)

Subject: Our Amazing, Loving and Patient Nanny Is Available Aug 1 for Full-Time Work
Please pass this along to anyone you know in NYC who is looking for the absolute BEST nanny for their children. I really want Fazie to be in a happy home. She lives in Queens so Queens, Manhattan or Brooklyn would be the best lpcations for her to work. THANK YOU!Our Amazing, Loving and Patient Nanny Is Available August 1 for Full-Time WorkOur nanny Fazie is simply the greatest child care provider I could have hoped for. Originally from Guyana, Fazie is the youngest of nine children and has more cousins than she can even count. Her entire life she has been surrounded by and cared for children of all different ages.
When Fazie first came to work for me, I had a 15 month old son, Max and was pregnant with my second.  Whenever I try to describe the kind of babysitter Fazie is I think back to when I first interviewed her. I had a two-step approach when meeting with candidates.  First I would meet the person and if that went well I would check their references and then invite them back to do a trial playdate at the park with me and my son. (I highly recommend this! You can tell a lot about a babysitter by the way they play with and try to engage your kids) I must have interviewed at least 20 people at that point with 5 of those making it to park playdates and my painfully shy toddler had no interest in any of them. Max, Fazie and I made it to the park and Max never even looked back at me as he ran off with Fazie. For those who know my son well, you understand what an amazing thing this was. Fazie just has that kind of gentle, loving vibe that kids immediately pick up on.
Now that my boys are 3 and 21 months, they are pretty much like little tornados. Fazie has never lost her patience with either of them, a trick I have yet to master. When they are misbehaving or doing something they shouldn’t, she has taught them with a shake of her finger “that’s a no-no.” When Max & Gabe fight as all siblings do and one is inconsolable, she is able to resolve the conflict and soothe the angry.  She will rock an overtired toddler to sleep for over an hour  if need be, build Lego towers for days, give piggy back rides long after I would refuse and magically heal boo-boos with kisses. She consistently goes above and beyond what many others would not do. Under her care my kids eat broccoli, bell peppers and fish, among other things she was able to successfully introduce. When I was in the hospital for 4 days after my second C-section, Fazie stayed over at my apartment for all four of those days and nights so my husband could be with me at the hospital. She has also stayed over on various other occasions when we’ve asked and has never said no to coming in early or staying late . We rely on her a  lot as we don’t have any relatives in the area to help us out. She is married and has two daughters of her own-8 and 16. The 8 year old is the love of my boys’ lives. You have never seen puppy love like when Fazie brings her daughter to our house. My husband & I hope for school holidays so she can come visit because everyone has such a good time.  We live on the Upper East Side and Fazie has made many other nanny friends for my kids to go on playdates with. I’ve made some great friends through our nannies introducing us to each other which has been a terrific bonus.
Fazie is also sensitive to religious customs and dietary needs. At one point we had my younger son on an extremely restricted diet to test him for food allergies and she was invaluable in helping us adhere to it. She sings Shabbat songs with my sons when we light the Friday night candles and even read one of Max’s books about the holiday of Shavuot which means she knows more than I do about that holiday.
The hardest thing about leaving New York is really going to be losing our adopted family member Fazie. I don’t know how we’ll ever be able to find someone in FL that can measure up to her. To say it’s important to us that she ends up with a good family is an understatement.  She currently works for us full time 40 hours a week and we are hoping to help her find a similar situation. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you know that is looking for an excellent nanny and will treat her like a family member.

Over the past year, we have been lucky to find families to fill our part time nanny’s schedule. So, we are looking to fill her hours. She is truly a wonderful person and great caregiver.

Weplan to keep her part-time too (i.e. can’t bear to let her go). We are hoping to find a wonderful family also with part-time needs to share her schedule.

Subject: Hi again

Sorry to bug you again.  Was wondering if you could help me by sending an email out regarding our nanny Stefanie.  Alex and Mia will be in school full days in the Fall, so we are going without a nanny, gulp!  And we are actually going to decrease her to part time this summer, because I am only going to work part time this summer.  She is AWESOME!!!  I am crushed about it all, but want to make sure she is taken care of.  I have pasted the letter I wrote below:

Recommendation Letter for Stefanie Magallanes

Our fabulous nanny Stefanie will be available for part time work this summer and full time work starting in the Fall. She is also willing to work weekends, if you happen to need someone to travel with you on weekends.

Stefanie has been with our family for 1 year, and our children are now going to school full time in September. We have 3.5 year-old boy/girl twins, and she is an ALL-STAR at taking care of them.

Stefanie takes them to all the parks on the UWS. She takes weekly trips with the kids to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Museum of Natural History, and the Central Park Zoo. She is motivated and a self-starter. She has tons of energy with the kids and she doesn’t need constant direction. She always has the kids working on creative projects (i.e. scavenger hunts, making Christmas ornaments out of baked play doh, sticker boards for good behavior, and much more). She even made them their own scrapbooks for Christmas, and filled them with photos that she had taken of the twins.

Stefanie never complains, and she is able to roll with any changes in the schedule.  I work from home so we are around each other a lot!  She keeps our home clean, and she handles the twin’s laundry, ironing, dishes, and any meals that fall into her hours. Stefanie is also great at communicating.  She is always available by cell phone, and she texts or calls me throughout the day with updates.  She is extremely smart and articulate, and she can speak to the twin’s teachers in my absence, and relay any important information back to me. I also email her over the weekends to let her know of any schedule changes. She is very tech-savvy!

We hired Stefanie last year because she had a glowing recommendation from the family she worked with before us. I am so sad to let Stefanie go, but she will make a new family very happy. Please feel free to email or call me for more info.

My name is Lisa and my cell phone is 917-691-1755.  My email is Lkerson@aol.com. You can reach Stefanie directly on her cell at 917-579-1431.

AMAZING NANNY AVAILABLE

We will be leaving the city in June and that means our incredible sitter, Susan, will be available. Susan is truly a star– she is adored by both our older (4 1/2) and younger (1 1/2) kids.  She is creative with their time, does tons of art projects and reading, schedules lots of playdates and prepares healthy meals for the kids.  She has very sound judgement, has taught my kids (and enforces) manners and leaves my apartment spotless.  She always arrives early with a smile on her face and is a pleasure to have around.  Susan is willing to work 3-5 days a week and, while she will be available about June 15, she is flexible with her start date. We recommend her without reservation and I would be happy to provide you with more details.Thanks,

 Ana is an experienced cargiver who speaks Spanish and English and has a teenage daughter.  She has worked for our family full time for the last 3 1/2 years taking care of our 3 1/2 year old daughter. She is an amazing person and caregiver. Ana dotes on our daughter and has taught her so much, it is really quite amazing. Each day, Ana spends countless hours engaging in play while simultaneously teaching my daughter.  Her patience, kindness and gentle nature continues to impress me.   I am a speech-language pathologist in a school and will be taking the rest of the year off since I had my 2nd child in November. As a result, we would like to reduce Ana’s hours  from full time to 3 full days.  I can be pretty flexible but would ideally continue to have Ana come three days and work elsewhere for twolaurencturk@gmail.com or 917-612-0210_________________________________________________

My sitter, Peggy, is available for full-time work. She’s been a part of our family for four years, two of those years full-time. My oldest is in kindergarten, and my youngest is in preschool, so my world is much more manageable than it used to be and I no longer need as much help. Peggy is calm and has a great sense of humor, which come in handy when spending time with my two very active, curious kids. She never forgets to slather on the sunblock in the summer, and she’s happy to take the kids sledding in the winter. Peggy is always setting up playdates for my kids and never turns on the TV. I don’t know how she does it, but she’s never late and is very rarely sick. Peggy is flexible and neat and will pitch in with folding laundry or washing dishes or meal prep for the kids. Peggy is bright and takes college courses in the evenings. She is available Mon-Fri 8-6:30 and though she’s legal she prefers off the books. She’s familiar with both the UWS and UES but is happy to discover new neighborhoods.

Many thanks,

Hi Valerie,Thank you so much for passing long Patti’s info to your friend(s):Our babysitter Patti Hanson has been with my family for 8 years and has been wonderful, loving, caring, responsible, dedicated, reliable and an invaluable member of our family. She takes care of Cooper and Charlie (8). I wish I could have Patti stay but now that Cooper is in school till 2pm, I would love to find Patti a wonderful family to work for. She is GREAT with babies and young kids and big kids too. She has families that she has worked with that she now goes to the kids Bar Mitzvahs, weddings and grandkids birthdays!! She is a lifer with all families she works with. She is either available full time M-F or full days on Monday and Thursdays. Patti works with another family on Tues, Wed and Fridays – but if a fabulous 5 day opportunity presents itself, the other family understand that Patti needs to work full time.  In 8 years, she only missed work a couple of days total, she is on time and always in a wonderful, pleasant mood- you can always count of her. She reads to the boys, plans playdates (if you want), gives baths, prepares meals, does laundry, cleans up, will pick up food items and is a super wonderful person. She loves what she does and it shows!!  She is a super fantastic caregiver!Many thanks!!!

    Our amazing nanny will be available soon. We are moving and despite profuse begging on our part, she cannot move with us. Donique is incredible in all aspects:
    – She is wonderful and caring with our two boys. Our 3 yr old refused to be left with any nannies or sitters until we found Donique. They are always doing artwork, reading, playing dress up or out at the park or library. Donique is equally as great with our 16 month old – keeps him on a schedule, ensures he is safe and teaches him many new things. She is calm and firm and disciplines when necessary. She cooks them healthy, well-rounded meals (vegetables included).
    – Donique is prompt and reliable and never sick despite us being sick all the time. She drops off and picks up our 3 yr old at school on time and the boys are always ready and punctual for their various activities.
    – She is a very hard worker and has endless energy which is a definite necessity for 2 boys.
    – She is very clean – keeps the children’s bedrooms and kitchen spotless and does tons of their laundry every week.
    – Donique is always taking initiative – setting up playdates, finding out about story times at the library, setting up a rewards calendar for good behavior etc.
    – She is a great communicator…often much better than I am…always clarifying things. She keeps lists of whatever food and assorted baby items we need.
    – I work from home a lot and she has a pleasant and easy going personality and is very take-charge with the children so that I can get my work done.
    If you are interested please feel free to contact me at 917-488-1922 or nicoleviglucci@gmail.com or Donique directly at 347-863-1179.

    Excellent and reliable babysitter available Our fantastic babysitter, Brandi, who has been working with us for over three years, is looking for a full- time job. We are so sad to see her go but we are moving and she is unable to do the commute to NJ. With over 10 years of babysitting experience, she truly loves working with children. Brandi is young and energetic. She is absolutely reliable, rarely if ever misses work, and the latest she has ever arrived is fifteen minutes early! She is creative and is always doing projects with the children – whether it be for a holiday or birthday. She makes sure to read to the kids daily (she takes our children to the library every week for story time and takes out books for them, as well), and is always teaching them good manners. She is easy-going and polite and is really a delight. You may contact Brandi directly at 917-295-5943 or feel free to contact me, Irit at 201-390-0305.

She is patient with the kids, and very trustworthy.

    Amazing part-time nanny available for afternoons!

    Hi everyone – Our wonderful nanny, Remy, currently works for us in the mornings and early afternoons (until 2pm each day). She’s looking for an extra 20 hours per hour, for hours like 2:30-6:30 or 3-7 daily (this can be flexible).

    Remy has been terrific for us. She came to us from a family who had employed her for 13 years. She is the kind of babysitter who is always on time (actually, she apologizes when she’s “only” 2 minutes early), and is always keeping busy doing something useful. She never sits around watching TV–if she’s not playing with our daughter, she’s taking her to playdates she has set up herself, or to classes, or doing light housecleaning (washing dishes, straightening up, etc.) Our 2 year old daughter is excited see Remy every day, and the house is always in great shape when we return.

    Anyway, if you or someone you know might be interested, please contact Remy at 718-594-4590. You can also call or email me if you have any questions. (917-859-4774, eplumeng@gmail.com).

    Thanks,
    Emily McGibbon

  23. Callie says:

    I’m 29 years old. My fiance and I were recently transferred here from North Carolina. We’ve just moved to the Upper West Side. I am currently unemployed, and am planning to take the NY Bar Exam in next week. I do not start my full time position until September 2012 (when I will begin working as a governmental attorney).

    I’ve always loved children and have spent lots of time with them. I’ve formed lasting relationships with several families who I have worked for over the years, and I am hoping to continue to do so here in New York this spring and summer (and after September on occasional evenings if I develop a close relationship with a wonderful family). I have experience as a camp counselor at a camp for children with special needs, as a middle school math tutor, as a college spanish tutor, as a nanny for four years, a babysitter for multiple families for over ten years, and as a godmother to the adorable 17 month old son of my best friend. (I am happy to provide names and numbers as references.)

    I believe in spending time out at the park, at children’s museums, at the library, cooking and baking, making arts and crafts, playing make-believe and dress up, and generally getting really into whatever it is that your kids really love to do. I always spent a lot of time playing outside with the kids I’ve babysat for in the past–jumping on the trampoline, swimming, biking, playing tag, or decorating with sidewalk chalk. I’m new to New York so I don’t know all the hidden kid-friendly treasures that this city has to offer yet but I’m resourceful and will find them oso that your kids will have lots of fun spring and summer adventures.

    I’m happy to fix meals and generally try to leave things as clean or cleaner than I found them. If your kids are napping, I’m happy to fold laundry or do other odd household tasks to help out. I’m also happy to help out with homework or to meet your kids and walk them to/from school/lessons. I love animals (especially dogs) and, if it is possible to bring your pup along with us when we head out to the playground and you’d like him to get the extra exercise, I’m thrilled to have him along too.

    Give me a call at 434-298-1150 or shoot me an email at catherine(dot)alley(at)gmail(dot)com

    We are moving out of the city at the end of May and are heartbroken to have to leave our wonderful, loving, active nanny, Patsy, behind. We would like to help her find a new family to care for. Patsy lives on the UWS and would love to find a family for whom she could watch an infant 3-4 days/week.

    Patsy has been a full-time nanny for our 11 month-old son for the past 7.5 months. She has over 20 years of experience as a nanny and her experience is evident in everything she does. She has impeccable references, is punctual, professional, kind, loving and caring. Patsy is a mom and a grandma and has such an innate way with children.

    Patsy has been an absolute godsend to our family, and our son could not adore her more. She sings, talks and reads to our son literally all day long. Every week she teaches him a few new “tricks”, like waving, clapping, touching his head, etc. She is so loving and kind and caring. Our son can’t crawl to her fast enough when she arrives every morning, and cries when she leaves every night. Each day when I come home, our apartment is left tidy and clean and I find our son giggling with joy with Patsy.
    Patsy is very active and loves taking our son for walks in the park, to the playground, to classes at Giggle, etc. She has never turned on the TV or used her cell phone during working hours and is 100% dedicated to our son at all times.

    Please let me know if you would be interested in speaking with Patsy. You can reach me at lauren.a.shea@gmail.com

  32. Talybear says:

    HI! Our wonderful nanny has been with us for 5 years and is adored by our kids as well as the parents of all of their friends, but as our kids are getting older, we have only needed her part time for the last year. Because we love her so much we kept her with PT hours but paid FT for the last year.

    At this point we are looking to now do a nanny share or offer ourselves up as her reference for a new FT job while we seek a new nanny/sitter for late afternoons and some evenings only between Monday-Thursday effective asap.

    If we can find the right Upper West Side family and the right situation, we would like to explore sharing her with another family. Starting June 25, our kids will not be home until 4:45 every day. We are seeking a babysitter for those 4 days a week from 4:30-7 . If you know of anyone please contact us.
    Additionally- if you are seeking an amazing nanny from 9-4 or 9-3 four days a week and/or all day Friday- we have someone great! Please email me if you would like to discuss that situation.

    And finally-
    . If anyone is interested in trying this more slowly and just potentially having our nanny come to you for the summer months 3-4 days a week from 9am-3pm, please contact me at talybear2002@yahoo.com. Should the situation work out, we’d be happy to explore extending the share beyond the summer months. Thanks in advance! TR

    Hello!
    We are searching for a part-time nanny (with strong references) from around late July 2012. We are an Australian family living on the Upper West Side, with a 3-year-old daughter and a (just) 1 year-old-son. We would require someone 3 days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, around 8.15am-6.45pm), though our daughter will be attending preschool each afternoon. Specifically, we are looking for someone who is:
    – safety conscious (our daughter is extremely active and our son will soon walk)
    – patient and affectionate (our daughter is high spirited – a firm but kind approach is most effective!)
    – punctual (we’re both working outside the home)
    – active in taking our children to the museums, classes, the playground, playdates etc.
    Further, a French or Spanish speaking nanny would be a big bonus!
    Grateful if you could pass on any strong recommendations and/or forward this post to those potentially interested. Contact: sophie.flynn@hotmail.com

    I love love love my nanny and am trying to find a job for her. We’re moving to NJ and she can’t come with us because her commute will be 2 hours each way. I can’t tell you how wonderful she is. So, would you mind circulating among your friends in case someone is looking for a nanny?

    Here’s all her info and she’s flexible.
    Wynelle Gonzales
    347-276-7005
    132 East 94th Street
    Brooklyn, NY 11212
    She’s from Trinidad (but is legal and has a green card)
    Husband is Kerry Gonzales 917-912-0788

    References:
    Nadine Shubailat (me so 212-456-7854 during the day and 917-438-8355 in the evening since my cell doesn’t work in the office)
    Heidi Cohen 917-596-5428
    Elisheva Fuchs 201-357-4346

    Wynelle is taking care of my 4 month old baby girl. She is wonderful. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She took care of my newborn baby like she was her own. She is so gentle, kind and loving to her. When I come home from work, she never rushes out but takes the time to talk to me, let me know the schedule, how the day went. She texts me photos of her throughout the day. She’s a very gentle and loving soul. The only reason she won’t be able to continue with us is because we’re moving to NJ, which would make the commute for her at least 2 hours long each way. I highly recommend her.

      I have had the same nanny for almost 8 years. We couldn’t be luckier to have Marta in our lives. Now that our boys are 6 and 8 we only have Marta work for us afternoons. Marta is 32 and has lots of energy. She is highly trustworthy and caring. She takes great care in her work and our kids love her. She takes initiative in planning outings and playdates and always find fun things to do. Since our kids have been in nursery school, without fail, every single teacher we’ve had has told us how wonderful marta is and how lucky we are. If you’d like to know more please call me at 212.960.3496.
      Thanks! Michele Gold

    Hi 🙂
    I am a 28 year old Israeli-American professional Singer and Babysitter. I am the Oldest of 4 children to a Family based in Israel, and have been caring for children of all ages almost all my life. I was born and raised in Israel, served in the IDF as a part of a singing troupe, and came here to pursue my dream in the music field, finding a way to combine it with working with children.

    I live on the UWS with my husband, we relocated to the city about 10 months ago. In the last 8 months I have been taking care of a wonderful 2 year old boy on the UES, who unfortunately will be going into preschool in the beginning of September. I have combined this part time job with teaching Hebrew threw music in several schools around the city.

    While living in Israel before coming here, I worked as a full time Nanny for a new born, since he was a month old and until he went into preschool which was after two years. I miss him dearly…

    I am now looking for a new part time rewarding job with children that would start around September. My rate is $20 per hour, I will happily send you recommendation letters and phone numbers by your request.

    I am an honest, warm, loving person with an optimistic view on life and my favorite thing to do in the whole world is to have conversations with kids 🙂

    I Hope to hear from you soon,
    feel free to call if you wish

  42. Beth Brodsky says:

    We are also trying to find a full time position for our beloved caregiver Lois, who has been with our family for the past 12 years, raising our son from age 4 months. Lois is a 48 year old woman originally from Antigua. We are extremely sad to have to say goodbye to her, but would like to help her find a family that can appreciate her and that needs her expertise full time.

    Lois is extremely experienced with young infants (our son was born 10 weeks premature and
    was very colicky and difficult to soothe, and she was amazing with him). She is
    energetic, has a delightful positive energy about her, is intelligent and extremely
    resourceful, respectful of boundaries, communicates directly and clearly, has a very
    strong work ethic and takes pride in her professionalism. She plays with children, reads
    to them, teaches them (manners, how to speak, beginning math and reading), takes them to
    the park and becomes friendly with other nannies with children and encourages interaction
    with other kids. She doesn’t sit them down in front of the television. She is never
    late, doesn’t call in sick.

    Please contact at brodsky.beth@gmail.com or 917 940-3973 if you are interested in
    learning more about Lois. She is with us part time right now but is able to leave at any time for the right full time position.

  43. Filipa says:

    Our nanny, Nellie, will be available for a full time live-out job from Sept/Oct. She is absolutely wonderful. We are first time parents and Nellie has been working with us full-time caring for our twin girls since they were 5 months old. Due to financial reasons, we will have to put the girls in day care soon and we are very saddened that Nellie will have to go. She is very experienced (she has been working as a nanny for years and is herself a mother of 4, including a set of twins), extremely reliable and flexible. She was always punctual and ready to stay longer, even on short notice, when we occasionally had late work meetings. Nellie is at the same time calm, creative and fun. She truly enjoys being with kids and our girls have had a lot of fun with her. She is also very respectful of the parents’ role and seeks to understand their philosophy and approach to child care as a way to guide her own interactions with the children. For instance: we are raising the girls in two languages and Nellie learned to say “mom” and “dad” in our respective languages, so that the girls would get used to the sound of those words. This helped us feel that we were part of our girls’ day even though we were not at home. We can wholeheartedly recommend her and will miss her a lot. Feel free to get in touch with her directly (347-293-379) or through us (917-912-1242).

  44. Jeannie says:

    A *wonderful* nanny with 20 years experience available in mid-September:

    Jean has been a wonderful caregiver for our 16 month old daughter, who is starting daycare in September. Jean has 20 years of experience caring for children and has been with several families for 5+ years. It is clear that she truly loves being with children, especially infants and young toddlers. She sang, read and played with our daughter and patiently taught her new skills. She made regular play dates with children in the neighborhood and spent a lot of time outdoors in parks and playgrounds, which our daughter loved. With Jean, we knew our daughter was always safe, learning, and having fun. I often came home to my daughter and Jean giggling together—a wonderful sound. She also always left our house cleaner than we left it and made sure to pick up anything we had forgotten for food or cleaning up after our daughter–all without us ever asking. Even my in-laws commented on how lovely she was. Any parents would be lucky to have Jean take care of their child. Please get in touch with Jean directly at 718.662.1616 or feel free to contact me at 646.470.6352 or jeannie.annan@gmail.com

  45. Sarah S. says:

    I am a college student and an aspiring opera singer studying at Manhattan School of Music. I have been babysitting for a family with three children for the past two years on the Upper West Side. My responsibilities included picking up the children from school (Heschel), bringing them to after-school activities, helping with homework, and making dinner. The children are getting older now, and the family doesn’t need as much help.
    I am looking for a part-time babysitting job a few afternoons/evenings a week. I am very energetic, warm, and trustworthy. I attended a Jewish day school in Westchester through eighth grade and a public high school where I was very involved in music and science programs and excelled in languages. I was honored to be chosen as an Intel Semi Finalist for my science research. I am one of four children and love to be with a family. I enjoy jogging, cooking, playing piano, and reading.
    Please let me know if you are looking or someone to help with your children. I would be happy to meet you and them. You can contact me at (914)980-1305.

    Hello all,

    I thought this might be a good place to announce what I’ offering, even though this doesn’t quite fit into the “babysitting” category:

    I’m a 28-year old Jewish male and Schechter grad. I currently teach piano to several clients in Williamsburg and Forest Hills. I’m hoping to branch out and find students on the UWS.

    A brief rundown: I teach adults and children of all levels, and I only make house calls. I come very highly recommended with plenty of references. I have a bachelors degree in music from McGill University and in addition to my teaching experience, I have extensive experience both as a restaurant manager and touring musician. I have a strong background in music theory, composition and performance of all styles.

    If anybody is interested, I can be reached at joemunro@gmail.com and if not, please forward this info along to any friends you think might have interest.

    Thanks! Hoping everyone is safe and well after the hurricane.

    We are so incredibly sad to let go of our wonderful nanny, Alcina. We are moving out of the city on February 1st, and really want to help her find a new family to care for. She has worked with us for nearly a year and has been such fantastic help. Alcina (or Cini as the kids all call her) is wonderful with our daughter who is nearly 2 years old. She has amazing energy, and takes Sophie on great adventures around the city. Our daughter loves Alcina so much. She knows the Upper West Side so well, as she has worked in the neighborhood for many years, but she is open to working in other neighborhoods as well. Alcina also prepares all of our daughters meals, and keeps the house incredibly tidy. She has experience with newborns, and has worked with families with multiple children as well. She really is a fantastic asset for any family.

    Feel free to call us with any questions. Please note, we will need Alcina to remain with us until the end of January.

    Hello everyone,
    My regular nanny recently broke her arm and I had the pleasure of working with another woman called Maria who is looking for a full time, live out position taking care of children. I dont often come across good nannies so decided to help her out in finding a new family. The last family she had a full time position with, left the country. She is in her 50s, very bright – so gets what your needs are quickly. She shows initiative but is also sensitive to checking with you to make sure what she is doing suits you. She is warm and engaging with the kids ( mine are 1 and 4); and is very reassuring both to the kids and me. She is efficient, making meals and cleaning up after the kids and doing a little help around the house and careful to give healthy foods and keep sleep schedules on track. She speaks a little English but probably needs a parent who speaks some Spanish. Please let me know if you’d like to hear more about her. My email is monique.levy@gmail.com.

    Happy new year,
    Monique

    Because of financial strain, we recently had to part ways with our beloved nanny. Roxanne was a tremendous educator and loving caregiver from essentially birth to our now 20 month old. My wife is Greek-American and I am Italian-American. Our daughter at 18 months was singing the entire American alphabet counting in English and Greek, recognizing words in both languages, as well as Italian, and speaking in sentences. We cannot offer a greater recommendation for a family seeking an incredible care-giver and educator than the nanny we so woefully had to part ways with.

    Hi – Our amazing, sweet and energetic nanny is looking for a new, full-time position, now that I have decided to stay home full time with the kids. Shamroon has helped take care of our two kids (3 and 1), since our oldest was 8-weeks-old.

    There are so many wonderful things to say about Sham. She is extremely dedicated to her job and brings a loving energy to our home. Over the years, Sham has taken care of kids of all ages and families with more than one child. Sham has always been flexible with our hectic schedules, coming early or staying late as needed. She is intimately committed to our kids’ lives, helping us manage the oldest in preschool, taking the youngest to classes in the neighborhood and looking out for new activities for the kids in the community.

    Our children love Sham dearly, and we will be so sad to not be able to see her each day, but want to do everything we can to help her find a new position with a family that needs excellent childcare. .

      Hello Lauren,

      My name is Marie and I am interested in filling your spot for an after-school babysitter. I am 17 years old, finishing out high school, and I speak French fluently since I am originally from Paris, France. I live on the Upper West Side too and would be able to take Bella to her activities, take care of dinner (I happen to love to cook, bake as well) and put her to bed. I get out of school at 2pm so I would be flexible with hours, as well as on weekends. I am experienced as a babysitter, having cared for a 6 year old girl as well as an 11 year old girl, but do not have references because the families I’ve babysit for have moved away and we’ve lost touch. I understand if you absolutely need those references, however, and cannot give me the job because of that, but I do hope you’ll consider me.

      Thank you

      Marie

    LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION FOR AN AU PAIR/NANNY.
    Dear Parent,
    we are writing on behalf of our current nanny Stefania.
    To be straightforward, if you are considering her as a care provider for your child, we are convinced that you cannot find a better person for the job. My wife and I give her our highest recommendation. This letter is unsolicited- we volunteered to write this endorsement based on our family’s great experience with Stefania.
    As a professor from the University of Iowa, I (Jeff) had the opportunity to spend 5 months in Italy on a research sabbatical. My wife (Amie) and 3 year old daughter (Willa) accompained me. To allow my wife to complete online course work for a graduate degree, we needed a babysitter for Willa. Upon arriving in Italy, we found several local candidates four aur babysitting job and without question, Stefania was the best interview and we feel unbelievably lucky to have found her.
    Stefania is caring, well-mannered young woman who does an amazing job with Willa. Stefania eased Willa’s transition from the U.S. to Italy with silly playtime; Willa giggles non-stop when playing with Stefania. Willa loves her more than words can say and regularly asks when she can have a “Stefania Day”. It was cold and rainy during our first couple months in Italy, so Willa and Stefania had to stay insde, but Stefania never ran out of creative ideas to play with Willa. Stefania is also tremendously generous. For Willa’s birthday, she voluntereed to make a gorgeous Snow White cake and came to her birthday party – all the while refusing to be paid for her time or the cake.
    Not only is Stefania great with children, my wife and I have enjoyed having her around. From a parent’s perspective, she is very personable and easy to work with. Stefania offered to drive us to places in the area wich we cannot reach via public transportation (we don’t have a car here in Italy). We trust her as if she was a family member. When Amie and I took an overnight trip to celebrate her birthady, Stefania took the responsability to take care for Willa for over 24 consecutive hours!
    We also appreciate how Stefania is respectful and does not try to assume the role of parent, but rather she carefully communicates with us on our parenting philosophy and abides by our wishes. Stefania is kind and patient with Willa’s 3 year old antics. Even when Willa is being defiant, Stefania always gets down on her level, talks to her in a calm voice, and convinces Willa to act in a more appropriate way. We believe that Stefania is meant to work with children and her aspirations of becoming a pediatrician are a testament to that.
    We will miss her very much when we live Italy. We don’t need child care when we return to the U.S., but if we did we would bring her back with us! Stefania has been a true blessing during our stay in Italy and have no doubt that she would be a wonderful complement to your family.
    Stefania is an Italian girl and would become an au pair in the United Stetes trough the Cultural Care au pair agency.

    Thanks.

    Dear Upper Westside Neighbors

    After 12 years with our warm and wonderful babysitter, Gertrude, we no longer need full-time support. If you, your friends, family or colleagues need a terrific full-time babysitter who will nurture and love your kids, you should strongly consider her. Gertrude has an easy-going spirit and is kind, responsible and enjoys a good sense of humor. She does laundry better than anyone I know and will even iron your clothes. She is also extremely punctual and flexible. We are unabashed in our recommendation of Gertrude.

    Hey there, my name’s Arletha and I sometimes blog about this subject too. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it seem like many of the replies appear they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you’re posting on additional social
    sites such as web 2.0 site list, I hope to keep up with you.
    Is it possible you could put up a list of all
    of your shared sites like your Twitter, Facebook page or linkedin
    profile?

    • Thanks for writing. I post as people need to share or I think there is something worth sharing… I don’t have a “business” in this so I don’t actively link to my facebook or twitter. I do’t take it that seriously. I hope you will visit or follow the blog and find something helpful!

    Hello to everyone. I am moving from Houston, TX to New York specifically Upper West Side of New York. Currently in Texas my 2 year old attends Primrose School which is such an awesome school not a daycare. I looked for a Primrose campus but they seem to be in New Jersey. =( Can someone help me and tell me what schools I should look into? Please I need all the help and advice I can get. Also, tuition prices are not a concern to me as long as my baby is getting the care, education, and love a child should have. Thank you in advance! =)

  82. Melinda Sisto says:

    My family will be relocating at the end of next month (July 2013) and we will no longer need our amazing nanny Cecil. Because Cecil has been an extension of my family for the past three years, I am compelled to write on her behalf in the hopes that another family in need of childcare will read this.
    We first met Cecil in 2010, when my sister and I were looking for a nanny to take care of our children (ages 12 months and 4 months). From day one Cecil has been professional and respectful, punctual and reliable. I can think of only one day that Cecil called out sick in three years and she was sick because she caught something from my child! As a working mother outside the home, I can’t begin to express how impressed I have been with Cecil’s reliability. We trust her 100% and perhaps more importantly, our daughters trust her 100%. The strong bond they have with Cecil is palpable. The joy they have from time spent with Cecil lights up the room.
    Cecil is energetic and artistic, gentle and loving, but also firm and consistent. She juggled two newborns and then two young girls seemingly effortlessly. Cecil has initiative and loves to be out and about. At the same time, she respects our wishes regarding naptime and the like. She likes to travel and is ready and willing to go on walks to parks, museums, the library and the playground. She is sociable and makes friends easily with other nannies. Cecil has a wonderful sense of humor. In short, she is a gem.
    My family wants to do everything we can to help Cecil find a new position with a family in need of excellent childcare. If you or someone you know needs a superior and trustworthy nanny, feel free to contact her directly by email at cecilxoxo@yahoo.com. References provided upon request.

    Hi everyone – we’re an UWS family looking for a full time nanny for our 20 month old daughter starting right away. Our current nanny is pregnant and has given me 2 weeks’ notice! Due to my daughter’s dietary preferences, and our language preference, we would prefer someone from South Asia. We’d love to find someone lively, happy, nurturing, loving and honest. Due to my very long hours, I need someone who can help beyond just childcare. Please feel free to contact me at 646-271-5683 for any suggestions.

  84. Kay-Lin Richardson says:

    Pema was with us for 3 weeks covering for my nanny while she was in Nepal caring for a relative, she is so kind, gentle and truly loves children. My son literally started bouncing and laughing every day that she walked into our apartment. My family grew very attached to her after only a short time so I am writing on her behalf in the hope that we can find her a permanent family.

    We would really do anything for her – and that’s after knowing her only 3 weeks – hopefully that speaks volumes about what a special person she is.

    Pema is very active and engergetic and was always engaging and talking to my son, taking him to the park, classes, and on play dates. Originally from Tibet, Pema has been in the US for the past 10 years taking care of children. She also has 5 grown children of her own so she has tons of experience caring for little ones. In addition to English, she speaks Tibetan and Hindi.

    Pema’s previous family moved out to CT and the commute was too far so she is now looking for a new position. She would like something full time (live out). She can provide references.

    To contact Pema call or text: 347-392-8027 and feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Hello! We are outgrowing our nanny and looking to help her find a 4 day position; we would like to keep her on for one day per week, if possible, though this is negotiable. If you or anyone you know is looking for a trustworthy childcare provider with A LOT of experience and excellent references, please let me know. Liz has been with our family (twin boys) for over five and a half years and is still very close to the family that she was with before (she took care of their three now-teen children as babies and has lit the candles at all of their bar/bat mitzvahs!) For more information, please e-mail twoturnfive@gmail.com.

  87. Hello families!

    I am writing to you in regard to seeking a new professional nanny position! I have a vast amount of experience working with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children in both the classroom and home environments. People would describe me as patient, resourceful, organized, and flexible. I am highly professional, proactive, and reliable. I communicate well and am very confident with my nannying techniques. More importantly, I feel I am an exceptionally dedicated career nanny and my passion is working in this industry.

    In addition to a degree in Early Childhood Education, I have nine years of professional nanny experience between Denver, New York City, and Minneapolis – with the most experience taking place in Manhattan. I am very eager to find a fulfilling, long-term position. I am very knowledgeable of infant and toddler schedules. Educating and working with children in the home environment is very important to me; therefore, I seek a position which will allow me to work in the home by creating appropriate lesson plans and learning experiences while providing all-day care for the children. In addition to extensive experience with children between the ages of zero to five, I have also authored an early childhood curriculum book specifically made for professional nannies and governesses, which has been sold worldwide. I believe a good nanny facilitates developmental activities, offers outdoor time, and engages the children in play through a variety of methods and experiences. As a nanny; one of my goals for each child I care for is to ensure that they are happy, confident, and can practice independence through their self-help skills.

    It is my goal to find a new nanny position in the city. I would like to become a partner with the parents in the nurturing of their children. I would be happy to email my resume, which entails my education and work experience. If any questions should arise, I can be reached at kristinlaubenthal@gmail.com.

    Sincerely,
    Kristin

    Looking To Find A New Family For Our Baby Sitter (Upper West Side)

    We have a wonderful babysitter who has been with us for six years. She is absolutely great. Helped us raise our two little girls (ages 3 and 6). She started with us in June of 2007.

    As the school year rolls around, our needs will shift and there just will not be enough for her to do around the house. However, she is absolutely wonderful and is like family. So, we are going to help her find a great new situation.

    Ideally, she would like to work with people who are just beginning a family. This way she can be with you for a long time. Also, the situation must be full time.

    She has a great work ethic. She is also very flexible. Willing to babysit evenings and weekends when requested.

    At the end of the day, she really cares about her kids and raises them with the warmth and attention that all parents want them to have.

    I can be contacted at davidlebowitz@yahoo.com.

    I am a college student and an aspiring opera singer studying at Manhattan School of Music. I have been babysitting for two different families with three children each for the past three years on the Upper West Side. My responsibilities included picking up the children from school (Heschel), bringing them to after-school activities, helping with homework, and making dinner. The children are getting older now, and the families do not need as much help.
    I am looking for a part-time babysitting job a few afternoons/evenings a week. I am very energetic, warm, and trustworthy. I attended a Jewish day school in Westchester through eighth grade and a public high school where I was very involved in music and science programs and excelled in languages. I was honored to be chosen as an Intel Semi Finalist for my science research. I am one of four children and love to be with a family. I enjoy cooking, arts & crafts, playing piano, and reading. I can help with english as well as hebrew homework.

All aspects of house cleaning, including thorough kitchen and bath cleaning, laundry, ironing, tidying, dusting, organizing, and light cooking, are the mainstays of this position.

    Dear Parents,
    We have a wonderful nanny but can’t give her the hours she needs. She has become a part of the family and as such we’d rather place her in a full-time nanny position and see her well taken care of then keeping her with us part-time and seeing her struggle financially.

    Ranae, our nanny, has been with us since our son was 6 months old. He is now 2 years old. She took amazing care of him as a baby but also grew with him as he got older and needed more stimulation and activity.

    She has a baby nurse-like certification, CPR certification and experience as a live in, full time and part time nanny across all age ranges. She is a mom herself to a lovely pre-teen girl (who grandma looks after when mom isn’t home).

    Ranae will make you life easier while taking great care of your child/children. She cleans house, does laundry and cooks if needed. Your home will be spotless when she leaves. She is proactive, reliable, and easy to work with. She’ll make friends with other nannies to coordinate playdates, find interesting activities for your child or make the most of toys at home to entertain and teach.

    Feel free to contact me for more info 917-751-7853. Or call Ranae the nanny directly at 508-405-5508.

    Hello parents!

    Urgent – Looking for a nanny (preferably Spanish-speaking) to start beginning February (4 days/week)

    We are urgently searching for a nanny (4/days week) (with strong references) from the beginning of February 2014. We are an Australian family living on the Upper West Side, with a 5-year-old daughter and a nearly 3 year-old-son. We would require someone 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, around 8.15am-6.45pm), though both children are in part-time preschool and Pre-Kindergarten. Specifically, we are looking for someone who is:
    – safety conscious (our children are rather active)
    – patient and affectionate (our daughter especially is high spirited – a firm but kind approach is most effective!)
    – punctual (we’re both working outside the home)
    – active in taking our children to classes, the museums, playground, playdates etc.
    – preferably Spanish-speaking (as our previous nanny was Spanish-speaking and our children are in Spanish-speaking pre-schools)

    Grateful if you could pass on any strong recommendations and/or forward this email to those potentially interested. Contact: sophie.flynn@hotmail.com

    Thanks very much!

    Is it alright for an upper west experiences baby-sitter, Hebrew-English speaker, doctoral candidate at Adelphi, to post her availability for babysitting here?

  111. sambular1313 says:

    Hi! My name is Samantha Plesser and I live across the street from the Museum of Natural History with my 3 cats (one is blind–very long story!) I attended Brown University for undergraduate school and graduated with double honors in psychology and literature and then, after practicing as a legal assistant at a large Manhattan large firm for one year, went to Cornell Law School where I graduated in 2009. After law school and passing the bar, I worked for approximately 3 years at a prestigious securities Manhattan securities firm in Manhattan. Recently, I have decided that securities law is not for me and have decided to return to school for my first love, nonprofit and foundational law. Therefore, I have begun a program at the Milano School at The New School downtown in Nonprofit Management for 2 years. I love this area and I love my apartment and I would really hate to lose it. My parents are being amazing about supplementing my income and I got a huge merit scholarship from The New School and am picking up some free lance legal writing when I can, however some steady childcare work on Monday evenings after 7, Wednesday evenings after 7, Friday evenings after 5, and the weekend would really make a difference as you all know rent is not going down in this neighborhood! I babysat when I was a legal assistant for a wonderful family, and I can provide both academic and personal references. Please contact me if you are interested. I have been a childcare provider all of my life, of all children of all ages, and if I ever stop working long enough to breathe, would love to meet someone and have children of my own.
    The best way to reach me is via email, below, but you can also call and leave me a VM and just say what this is in reference to (as part of my program I work 3 days at a nonprofit press) at 401-935-9391. I look forward to speaking with you! Have a wonderful day and stay warm in this slushy mess.

    Hi, my name is Patricia. I have been a nanny for the same family on the Upper West Side for 11 years. Now that the kids are too old, unfortunately they don’t need me anymore. I started with them when the older daughter was a toddler and the mom was expecting her second daughter. I would take the girls on playdates and to classes, I would prepare them meals, I would do light housekeeping, I would pick them up from school, and nurture them and play with them. I am an honest, loving and caring person, and my references can attest to my reliability and punctuality. I am looking for my next family, and hope for a long-term position.

    Can someone please get back to me. There was a nanny the other day in Carnegie Hill who let the 2 year old boy she was caring for run into the street while texting. Another mother ran in the road to grab the boy, while she kept on texting and screaming profanities. We need to get in touch with the boys parents asap. I have a picture of her which I cannot post here. Can someone please get back to me. I am happy to share the picture and believe they may live in the 90’s on the UWS.

    Superb Twins Nanny Available – Tricia – cell 646-753-3795

    Tricia started working with us when our twins were 2 months old and she has been an amazing partner to us ever since. Our children will be attending school full-time in September (and are turning 4 in December) and we are sadly saying goodbye. For her innumerable skills and limitless sense of love, we are so lucky to have had her in our lives.

    Tricia came to us as an experienced twin nanny, having a great track record of long-term relationships with twin families and having twin boys herself. She has an in-depth understanding of what children need at all ages – from feeding and sleep routines to physical and intellectual development – and understands all of it from the nuanced twin perspective. She handles the many tasks of caring for infant twins with ease and calm. As my children grew, she handled them as toddlers by simultaneously being authoritative and firm, while always respecting the children’s personalities and individual needs in a loving way. She never, ever raises her voice. She loves and nurtures our children and has truly helped our kids develop into happy, loving, and curious people.

    We interviewed a number of people when we started looking and right away knew that she was the one for us. She is devoted, patient and kind. She exhibits excellent judgment and maturity, and has good instincts and reacts quickly. Tricia is very observant and is always quick to inform me if something appears wrong with one of my children. She is smart, vivacious and friendly, yet at the same time calm and composed. She is extremely reliable, and has a very strong work ethic. She is always on time, and rarely ever sick. She is also well-organized and keeps the apartment very neat, the toys organized, and anticipates needs from running low on diapers to outgrowing shoes.

    She reads and sings to them, and has taught them so much. She is 100% engaged with the children and talks to them non-stop. As a result, nobody can get over just how verbal both my kids are for their age. They talk up a storm. My children are also excellent eaters because of her. She prepares healthy, delicious meals for them and encouraged good eating habits from the start. She also successfully potty-trained them at a young age. She is very physically active and quick on her feet. She spends a lot of time outdoors with the children, keeping them busy and active. She always plans different play dates and activities every day. She brings with her a sense of high energy and excitement that is contagious.

    I have heard so many unsolicited complements about her over the years I have lost track. Neighbors, mothers, teachers, and strangers – all tell me how lucky we are. From one stay-at-home neighbor (who meets a lot of nannies), I have heard amazement at how “in-tune” she is with the needs and personalities of my children. From another neighbor (a stranger until this conversation), I have heard how respectful and polite she is toward the children and others. From everyone I hear how happy the children are every time they are with her. I frequently get to see her in action and I too am constantly amazed at the warmth and patience she exhibits. Needless to say, my children love her. They often ask to save pieces of their favorite foods to share with her on Mondays (she always shares her food with them after all).

    I can go on and on, but will end with this — it is hard to imagine not having her in our daily lives, and we will miss her immensely. Our family’s relationship with her is built on mutual openness, communication and respect. She is looking for a like-minded family who will be a great fit. You would be lucky to have her. Trust me.

  123. Amanda Reid says:

    Hi All,

    I have decided to stay home with my kids and want to help find a new family for my amazing nanny to work for. Johanna has been with us for 3 years and has been a tremendous help/asset to our family. She started when my son was 5 months old and immediately got him on a nap schedule which helped organize his days and he started sleeping through the night! She has worked on the UWS for years and knew all of the classes and parks that were appropriate for him at each stage of his life. She also became friends with many nannies in the neighborhood who cared for children a similar age and set up play dates with them so he had interactions with other kids. She has potty trained my son, taught him to dress himself, and enforces manners.

    When my daughter was born 9 months ago, Johanna also got her on a schedule and handled both kids seamlessly. I have never worried about my kids in her care and have learned so much about childcare from her due to her years of experience.

    Please contact me if you would like to learn more about Johanna or you can call/email her directly.

    As of May 27, 2014:
    Our nanny Rachael has been with our family for 3.5 years, since our son was 10 weeks old. She is trustworthy, reliable and great with infants and young children. They have fun together and she takes him to school, classes, parks, museums and arranges playdates. At home, she sings and reads to him. Because our son is in school most of the day, Rachael is looking for a part time or full time position. We are delighted to give her a reference and she comes with many more from previous happy families.

  125. Kristin Wesley says:

    My family has just moved to the Philadelphia are, and we are looking for a family for our fantastic nanny of 2.5 years, Tammy Forde.

    Tammy has 18 years of experience in childcare. She has been with us since our first child (now 2.5) was 10 weeks old and has been integral in helping to raise both both children (second child, 1.5 years). They both adore her! Tammy has more strengths than I can convey here, however I will name a few. She is completely trustworthy and dependable in every respect. She is energetic, creative and playful, and she is terrific at organizing activities and outings for the children. Tammy views her job not only as taking care of the children but helping them to develop skills and knowledge, and she is a great teacher. She is affectionate and also remarkably observant about each child’s personality and different needs. The person who recommended Tammy to me told me that she is “absolutely no drama” and this could not be more true. She is extremely reliable: Tammy has been sick literally 1 day in 2.5 years, and she is always 15 minutes early and ALWAYS willing to stay late or work on weekends — extraordinarily flexible. She is admirably tidy and organized and has singlehandedly kept our apartment in order. In sum, our family loves, admires and depends on Tammy, and we hope to find her a good job home.

    I am happy to speak more about Tammy to anyone who is interested.

    Hello,
    Our daughter, Tegan, is entering a 4s program in the fall. Our nanny, Sharan, who has been with us for four years is looking for a new position. She would like to stay on the upper westside if possible, but is open to working anywhere in Manhattan.
    Sharan has nurtured our daughter’s every need from age one month until today. It has truly been a joy to watch how Sharan’s interaction with Tegan change over time. She has nurtured her growth at every age in such an amazing manner. Sharan came to us highly recommended and I can only repeat this recommendation. If you have or or are about to have a newborn and are interested in hearing more about Sharan, please reach out to me.

    Sharda has been with our family since my oldest son, now 4 ½, was eight months old. However, Sharda has been a nanny in Manhattan for almost 20 years, and has worked for three different families throughout her career. Soon after Sharda started, we had our second boy, now 3. To outsiders, Sharda makes taking care of two high-energy boys look easy. Sharda is warm, friendly, happy, caring, punctual, reliable, and has a ‘take-charge’ attitude. Friends and acquaintances always comment to me that Sharda is wonderful, and that they are impressed at how consistently engaged she is with our boys. When Sharda is working, she is one-hundred percent focused on the boys. We are moving out of state, but we are so grateful that Sharda has helped us to raise polite, sweet, and out-going children. Sharda will do light housekeeping, cooking and children’s laundry. She is a treasure, and we recommend her without reservation. Wonderful references are available upon request.

    Hi! My name is Atara, and my amazing babysitter, Joan, will be available in August, as my family is leaving the NY area:

    We are leaving New York and our wonderful nanny Joan is looking for a new position starting on or around August 11. Joan has been with us for 3 years. She came to us with years of experience caring for children from newborns to big kids. She cared for our son (3) and daughter (1) fulltime (Monday-Thursday, occasional Fridays) since our son was 4 months old. She’s warm, caring, easy-going, unflappable, and our kids are so excited to see her every morning! Joan is reliable and punctual – she never arrived late to us or to any activity since we’ve known her. She fed them three meals a day, worked with us through all stages of development from breastfeeding to potty training. Arranged playdates, took kids to playgrounds, parks, library, classes, school, camp, etc. Great at reading to kids, playing with them, working on new skills and does everything with a smile on her face. We are so sad to leave her and want to help her find a great new family to work for. Positions in Bronx or Upper Manhattan (east or west) preferred. Joan is available on Monday-Thursday all day; Friday mornings only.

    Interested families can contact Atara at ataram@gmail.com or can call Joan directly at (646) 922-4372.

    Our amazing babysitter of 8 years is going to be available starting this fall for full time work. Many of you know Mencie from around the neighborhood. She came to work for our family when Justin was 4 years old. Since then we had 2 more sons, now aged 7 and 4 and with everyone in school all day long, Mencie is longing to be around children again. Mencie is an extremely loving, caring person, who is also able to sternly discipline my sons when needed. She is of course trustworthy, sincere, and reliable and always focused on the well being of the children in her care. She is also always busy – either taking the kids to the park, on playdates, to our building playroom, to the bookstore or just reading to them or playing with them at home. Since she never wants to sit still, and since the children are now in camp all day, my home is sparkling clean, my laundry is done daily, shopping is up to date and every closet and drawer in the apartment is neatly organized. While I will be extremely sad to give all of this up, Mencie really wants to be around children doing what she loves most.
    Alternatively – – if you or someone you know needs a sitter for morning hours only, I would be happy to work out a share arrangement. I will need childcare only from 2:30 – 6 and would love to find Mencie a position for the earlier part of the day.
    If you are interested or know someone who might be, please give me a call to discuss. I can be reached at (917) 689-7066.
    Sincerely,
    Caren

    I am looking for a part time nanny. My son is 4.5 months old and we are looking for a nanny who is patient, calm, loving, someone who is engaged, honest, responsible and great with babies. Infant experience is a must.

    I am looking for help 25-30 hours per week. Hours approximately 9am-2pm, but I am flexible. Our preference is to find someone who can also help on an occasional evening or weekend – but this is not a requirement. I am open to shares (ideally a family with school-aged children who want to keep their nanny for pick up and evenings). anna.janis@gmail.com.

    If you are in need of a reliable, trustworthy, kindhearted, and experienced individual to assist with the care of your children then Amelia is the perfect fit. Amelia does everything from setting schedules, to cooking nutritious meals, arranging play dates, encouraging our children to be compassionate and so much more. She has helped my overly energetic 3 year old learn basic math and has been a godsend when it comes to potty training. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

    Our full time babysitter, Donna, has been with us for 7 years, since our first child was an infant. Our 2 children (ages 7 & 4), are now both in school for a full day and we are looking to find another family in search of a part-time babysitter for mornings and lunchtime before she meets our kids after school.

    About Donna: She is experienced, professional, warm, caring and fun. She is incredibly organized, proactive and energetic when it comes to the children’s needs, including setting up playdates and activities, keeping track of the kids’ schedules and effortlessly moving the kids to and from activities. Donna is also completely comfortable keeping a kosher kitchen, and keeps the kids’ space organized and the entire apartment neat and tidy. She has an easy-going, can-do attitude and will help out with household tasks, such as grocery shopping.

    Would like to help our incredible Nanny find a new full-time (40 hour position)! Beth’s email is bethcastro36@gmail.com and phone # is 347-278-5272.

    Beth has worked for us since our son was 3-months. She came to us 5 years ago also through excellent references and has experience with infants, toddlers and small children.

    She is very punctual. We both work and can count on her to always be on time. She loves children and I have always been impressed at how she is able to generate play-dates and fun activities with other mom’s and nannies.

    Beth has accompanied our son to doctor and dentist appointments. And under her care he was always safe, clean, well-fed (she is a great cook – including birthday cakes) and happy.

    Beth has kept Andrew’s room and clothes immaculate and will tidy up our apartment too. Beth doesn’t watch TV. Also of note is that Beth was a midwife in her native Philippines.

    I would encourage you to reach out to Beth directly. I am happy to provide an excellent reference Abe Garver 646-620-6317 (abe.garver@gmail.com) as will Andrew’s mom Cheryl Garver at 917-992-5384. Thanks! Abe

  149. A lovely nanny, Marcia, who I have known and has helped me for over 9 years, is looking for a full-time position, but would take part-time work. She was the nanny for a friend since the birth of her now 9-year old and also helped with their 2nd child. She continues to babysit on occasion for us both, which says a lot. Marcia is very sweet, exceptionally caring, reliable and easy-going. She is joyful and playful with the kids, and they love her, but she is never a pushover. She always neatens up my place whenever she is babysitting, which is a great bonus for me and shows she is conscientious. She’ll cook, too, and is very flexible. I am available to answer questions at jessicagoldfarb@gmail.com. You can call Marcia directly at (917) 445-7001. Thanks!

    Our loving and caring bi-lingual nanny Fanny from Ecuador will be available since our son is joining a day care. We have been extremely content with all the work and her unique professionalism combined with great enthusiasm. For his 20 months, our son’s spanish skills are really great and it is because Fanny has put much love, energy, and knowledge into his wellbeing and development, far above what one would expect from a nanny.
    She is extremely reliable, never ever late, has shown a lot of initiative and truly knows what babies/toddlers need and like. She has also been a great help in the apartment, performing tasks that are out of her duty range, with being asked.

    We could not recommend her more sincerely and wish for her to find a new family. You can either contact her directly at 917 853 2760 or contact me for further information/reference.

    Hello UWS community,
    We are exploring childcare options for our new daughter, to begin in mid-February when she’s 3.5 mos. old. Does anyone have advice on identifying UWS daycares? My internet search results are patchy- I’m finding a lot of classes (i.e. 1-2 hrs) vs. 9-5 care. So far I’ve only come up with Bright Horizons. Any input is much appreciated! We would like to consider a nanny as well, and are looking for referrals. No laundry/housekeeping/meal prep needed at this point- just excellent newborn/infant care. Thanks and kind regards,

    Nanny Available: dedicated, respectful, loving, and polite

    We are writing this letter on behalf of Erma Watson, who has taken care of our family (Anabel, 5, and Jack, 1) for the past five years. Since we are soon leaving the area and will have to leave Erma, we are providing our full endorsement of Erma’s character and qualities, and our strongest recommendation of Erma for other families seeking childcare.

    Erma is dedicated, respectful, loving, and polite. Our children have never known anything but love, and Erma remains respectful of our rules and limits. We trust her completely with our children and our property, and that comfort is worth everything to us. She is always reachable when we need her. “Please” and “thank you” are the cornerstones of what Erma teaches and reinforces in our household.

    Erma is very healthy and takes care of herself, and so she is not only rarely sick, but she also has remarkable strength and energy. She is always ready to play on the floor and take the kids outside—our children are never lacking for exercise, time outdoors, or stimulating activities. She straightens ups the apartment every day; she always picks up milk or other household staples before we even realize that we need them. Both of our children get a bath every day and are in their pajamas when we come home, even when their calendar is full.

    Our children are our life, and we are amazed by the number of people in the neighborhood who not only complement our children, but also compliment Erma. Teachers tell Erma that they wish all of the caregivers could be like her. Neighbors tell us how wonderful and nice Erma is. It is so reassuring for us—considering how modest Erma is, we would never hear about it from her. That’s part of the reason why we want to write this letter. She would never speak herself about all of her wonderful qualities, and we are more than happy to do the talking for her.

    In five years, Erma has earned our complete trust and won over our love, and we will always consider her a part of our family. We cannot recommend her highly enough, and any other family would be lucky to have her help take care of their children.

    Please contact us if you have any further questions, if you know of anyone who might be interested, or if you would like to meet Erma yourself. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have or make an introduction.
    Sincerely,

    Jason and Kathleen Kreuzer

  169. Phil Kanfer says:

    My nanny spent the past 2.5 years as the nanny for my boy/girl twins since they were 6 months old and has over 17 years of childcare experience working with twins and single’s. She loves them so much but they’re about to start school so she’s looking for work, ideally, from 9am-2pm Monday-Friday starting in September, but she’s flexible. She spends most of her days out and about finding anything that would stimulate the kids minds. She loves the outdoors and is very, very active. Within the first 3 months on the job she developed a network of nanny friends who have kids the same age as ours. She proactively schedules weekly playgroups with them and sees them all multiple times during the week, which is terrific for the kids’ social interactions.

    She also adores reading to the children she cares for and makes it a priority to read to them every day, visit bookstores for story time, etc. She absolutely loves the kids, loves her job and is excited about whatever new opportunity comes along. She would be a great fit for anyone’s family and is excited about this new chapter in her life! I HIGHLY recommend getting in touch. She’s the absolute best!

    Hi All-
    Like so many, I am seeking a new family for our nanny, Angie. I’m not sure what I can say to distinguish Angie from the rest, but she truly is amazing. My heart is completely broken losing her.
    We have had our incredible nanny, Angie since the day our oldest son was born (almost 7 years ago).Now, with two school aged children, our needs have changed. I am hoping that we can find an amazing family that is looking for someone full time.

    I can’t say enough wonderful things about Angie (which should be evident by the fact that she has been with us since day 1 of parenthood). Angie is part of our family. Our children refer to her as “my Angie” and insist that she be a part of our family hugs. From the adult perspective, Angie is first and foremost unbelievably reliable and flexible. I can count on one hand the number of days she has called out sick in 7 years and there is not one time that she has said no to staying late when I had a last minute request. She’s always on time, has a smile on her face and there has not been one day that I have questioned my kids safety or Angie’s judgment (Angie used to be a cop in Trinidad) Not that I needed the validation, but I have received numerous comments through the years from neighbors and strangers saying how great Angie is with my kids and how she’s always focused on them and not on her phone.

    I am heartbroken at the thought of losing Angie, but will be ok if I know that the she has landed with a family that will appreciate her like we do.

    Feel free to reach out to me, Jenny Goldschein jgonzaleznyc@yahoo.com with questions or contact Angie directly at 347-243-5086

  177. Beatrice says:

    Hi! I am Beatrice Benavides and was born and raised in Southern California. I have worked in primary and early childhood education since 2002 both in the states and abroad. I have just returned to the states after working in early childhood for the past three years at an American, Reggio Emilia inspired school in Mexico. Previously, I worked at a catholic school in California.

    While in Mexico I was also a volunteer teacher for primary age students at an organization that provided free education to street children. I also tutored a six year old boy five days a week for two hours a day from February 2014 to June 2015. I initially designed a curriculum evaluating all content areas and continued with activities to increase pre-reading skills and mathematical concepts.
    I have a degree in Journalism and I am currently in the second year of an online Early Childhood Education degree offered by Vanguard University of Southern California. Additionally, I have participated in online early childhood education courses given by Stanford and other academic institutions. For the 2014-2015 school year I participated in 80+ hours of professional development in subjects such as Balanced Literacy and Teaching in the Digital Area. I do not speak Hindi but I am a fluent Spanish speaker. Given your daughter’s age this is an excellent opportunity for her to start learning a third language.
    As a teacher I aim to establish an environment that fosters learning by creating a child-centered, emergent curriculum. I strive to develop activities that provide an opportunity for the child’s optimum growth and development. I am also interested in being part of the children’s curiosity in their surroundings and drawing from their environment to bring about daily learning opportunities. It is also of extreme importance to me that the learning occurs in a fun, enjoyable atmosphere that respects the child’s individuality.
    In my free time I like reading, writing, engaging in outdoor activities, cooking for myself and having friends and family over, spending time with my family (I have a 2 year old niece whom I adore), and volunteering.

    If interested please feel free to email me at bbenavides@hotmail.com

    Dear Upper East Siders,

    My name is Amanda and I am an actress living on the Upper East Side. I am 27 years old, I grew up in North Jersey and graduated from Penn State University. I am passionate, energetic, reliable, communicative and experienced. For the past two years, while I have been taking singing and acting lessons, I have been babysitting twin girls (age 2) for about 20-25 hours a week. Unfortunately, they moved out to Westchester. I am looking for another steady part-time job babysitting and/or tutoring. I have experience taking care of children of all ages including newborns. I can do after school pick-ups, playdates, activities, snack/meal prep, homework help, bedtime etc. I also have experience tutoring and working on college prep and applications with high school students.

    I anticipate that I will be taking classes for at least the next 2-3 years and would love the opportunity to grow with a family. I have lived on the Upper East Side for 6 years and am very familiar with the area. I have extremely flexible hours and have great references. If I sound like a good fit for you and your family, please contact me at ADK5032@gmail.com.

    Thank you!
    Amanda

    Our much loved nanny, June Todd, is looking for a new position beginning in August/September. She has been with us since 2008 when my son was 10 weeks old. Since then, we’ve had two more children and I can’t imagine surviving working and being a mother without her. But now that our youngest will be in school, we no longer need someone full time so we are eager to help June get situated with a nice family.

    June is incredibly trustworthy, active and loving. Whatever needs to be done related to child rearing, June has done it – from the early baby care like preparing bottles of breastmilk, teaching counting and colors, to bigger kid stuff like preparing meals, trips to the park, reading, play dates, etc. She provides structure for the kids in a very loving way and my children are incredibly attached to her. On weekend mornings, the kids will wake up and ask hopefully, “Is June coming today?”

    In addition to how wonderful she is with my children, I appreciate how professional June is. She is on time and cheerful every morning, and somehow she manages to keep my kids on time for their appointments, something I can never seem to manage. Most importantly, I know that June would guard my children as if they were her own. June hasn’t been just a nanny, but has helped me raise my children. And for that, I am incredibly grateful.
    Please let me know if I can provide any more detail about our experience.
    thanks,
    Kara

      Nadine has been working with us since november 2014, when my daughter was 3 weeks old. Nadine is responsible and reliable, and extremely kind and loving. My daughter adores her. She is also easy going, conscientious and trustworthy. She is 25 years old, and has the energy to show for it. She does have children, so has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to both infants and toddlers. Nadine is creative and thoughtful, and her interactions with my daughter are always developmentally appropriate. When my daughter was an infant, she was great about handling breastmilk, keeping to a nap schedule and monitoring sleep/eating/diapers during the day. Now that my daughter is older, she is always coming up with new activities (like teaching french)to make learning, reading and play fun. I cannot say enough good things about her, and I would love for her to find another family so that she can continu her good job.

    Hi there,
    I would like to recommend our wonderful Nanny to you all.
    Her name is Bandana, and she is orignally from Nepal. She is seeking a new full time position.

    Our son is 2 and a half, and Bandana has been with us from the very start.
    She is special individual who provided my son such gentle and nurturing care as a little baby….helping him achieve all the milestones with enthusiasm.
    Now that he is a bit older, that warm attention has evolved into active and lively play, with a lot of proactive and thoughtful stimulation. She has a very easy-going personality and melds seamlessly into our family-time at home.
    She is great with organizing playdates and even walking that extra 15 minutes to get to the “Best” park, or to meet me at my office. She also helps prepares my son’s meals and keeps everything super neat and tidy.
    There is so much more that I’d love to share….

    We are genuinely sad to see her move on, but hope its to another great home….and soon!
    Please reach out to me for more details.

    My best,
    Dina Wright

  194. I would like to post for my sitter Edith who worked with me when I lived on the UWS. I have since made the migration to NJ. Had I been able to take my sitter with me I would have. I found Edith from a colleague at work – her sister had been working with several of my colleagues. Edith came to us when we had one child and then a second one a year later.
    Before Edith joined us we had a few bad experiences with the bench type nannies, career nannies who treated their kids like a job. Edith treated us like family – she cared for all of us genuinely and I finally felt like I could go to work without a worry. We had to part ways when we moved, but we always look back to the time with Edith as formative for us and for the kids. And someone would be lucky to have her. Any questions please let me know.
    aklimerman@gmail.com
    I had her with my young kids, but as a mom with four boys, Edith can handle anything.

Every day she prepares organic puree food for him.

    AMAZING Nanny needs a new Family!
    Hello,
    Our wonderful nanny of 3 years is looking for a new job. She cared for our two daughters (the oldest from 5mo-3years, and the little one from birth-1 year). Marlene is a very caring, calm and helpful person. She took on a wide variety of jobs for us: she made baby food from scratch for both girls, warmed breast-milk and formula, helped with sleep training, potty training and the transition to nursery school. She arranged play dates independently for my older daughter from the children and caregivers she met in the neighborhood. I credit her completely with our daughter having friends at all! We lived on the upper west side when Marlene worked for us and she is comfortable in the neighborhood, but is happy to work anywhere in Manhattan. The only reason that she is not currently working for us is because we moved to Brooklyn and the commute was too long for her (1.5 hrs). She was never sick and always arrived to work on time, if not 5 mins early. She is an excellent communicator and really easy to be around. She is also willing to do light house-keeping, cooking and laundry for the little ones etc. I remember how helpful she was in organizing my children’s drawers or helping me pack for trips. But what really comes to mind is the time my daughter was very sick with a fever and Marlene held her and rocked her for 8 hours straight while I was at work. If you want a caretaker who is filled with love for your children and genuinely wants to help, this is your nanny. For the last 2 years, since Marlene has been working elsewhere, she still visits my children over Christmas and summer vacation. They love her and have such a bond with her!

    She is available immediately, can work from 8am-7pm, and can do occassional evenings and weekends

    Shanti, our wonderful nanny, is looking for extra work on weekends, during the day or evenings from Friday evenings through Sunday evenings. Shanti has worked for our family for 15 years, since our oldest of three children was 3 months old. We have two other children, ages 13 and 10.

    She is the most responsible, most caring, and most loving nanny on the planet or at least in NYC. Shanti is a beautiful, humble and positive person whom we love and cherish. She is very skilled with caring for children, anywhere from the baby stage of diapers and strollers and laundry, to the teenager stage of tons of extracurricular activities and homework and stress. She always shows up on time, she almost never calls in sick because she is responsible and keeps herself healthy, and she is very good with children at all sorts of different ages and temperaments. If you need someone you can trust, respect and like to care for your children on the weekends, you should email or text meekabondy1@gmail.com or 646.335.8757.

    Our 10 month old son is moving on to daycare in May and so our nanny, Oma, will be looking for a full time position. Oma has worked for us for about 7 months, and she is *fantastic*. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She is a natural with small babies, and is very energetic. She is constantly taking our son Milo out and about, to the park, library, zoo, and on many many playdates. She is always sending us pictures and texts with updates about their adventures. Oma is very dependable, and very easy going. She quickly incorporated herself into our household, without missing a beat. She is very attentive to Milo’s needs, and to our own. She is flexible, and is willing to go along with whatever preferences you may have. She knows Harlem well.

    She is looking for a full time position (40 hours) in UWS / lower Harlem area. She is hoping to work with a small baby (though she is flexible), and to be with a family for a good period of time.

    If you are interested, you can contact Oma directly at omaramdhanie@gmail.com or on her cell at 718.451.6527. I am happy to provide anyone who is interested with additional information.

    Oma is THE BEST. If you are expecting and will need a nanny in late spring, definitely contact her!

    Our wonderful nanny is looking for a job. I am a physician and my husband an engineer, both working full-time. We have had our nanny for seven years, since the birth of our third child. She has been responsible for our three children –a 7 year-old-girl and 9 and 11-year-old boys who are in full-time private school. Sadly we can’t justify keeping her full-time any longer since all three are out of the house all day Monday through Friday now — but her start date can be very flexible (since we will keep her until she finds a family situation that is a good fit). She has great, warm relationships with all three of my children and she is professional, organized, hard-working and can both take initiative and direction well. She has only called in sick one day in 7 years. If you would like to meet her or speak to me — call me — Eileen — any time at 347-266-1003.

    I am posting to help our lovely and wonderful nanny, Cecilia, to find new employment. We recently had a sudden change in situation and thus Cecilia is looking for full-time work.

    Cecilia was our nanny from October 2014 through March 2016. When she first started with us, the youngest was 8 mos. and the oldest was 4 years old. She is kind, gentle, and patient and developed a great bond with my boys who both adore her. She cooked for the whole family often, cleaned, did laundry while managing multiple daily activities, playdates, naps, and school pick-up. She was punctual and trusted. I highly recommend her to any family. Cecilia can be reached at 347-891-6353 or at ceciliag525@gmail.com. She lives in Queens and is happy to commute to the UWS or elsewhere. Please feel free to contact me for a reference at rchalasani1@gmail.com.

    Dianne is a fantastic caregiver with 20+ years of experience including 10 with our family. She is leaving because our 2 kids are grown & no longer need a caregiver. She is warm & caring, but also enforces boundaries. She ensures our children are engaged, proactively setting up play dates & activities. She is extremely responsible, prompt & well-organized. She is always flexible, willing to accommodate our schedules. Simply put, no recommendation can express how lucky we were to have found Dianne.

    I am posting on behalf of my friends nanny she has over 15 years of experience with toddlers, newborns and premature babies. She is very honest, reliable, kind and very responsible. She takes her work very seriously and gives it her hundred percent attention. She is seeking a full time position. Feel free to contact her directly her name is Janel 3474811775.

  220. Our nanny Sharon is extraordinary. She has 20+ years of experience and has been with me as a part time caregiver to our 2 1/2 year old for a year and a half. I share her with another family who she works for three days a week where she takes care of three girls. I would never give her up except for the fact that we are re-locating. She’s warm & caring, but also firm (in a very loving way). My daughter says “please” and “thank you” and “excuse me”, cleans up after herself and follows instructions beautifully. I believe much of this is due to Sharon, not me and my husband. Sharon teaches while she gives care and also helps develop healthy habits and routines. She always ensures my daughter is engaged, proactively setting up play dates & activities. She’s extremely responsible, prompt & well-organized. I recently learned something very wonderful in the playground. I ran into someone I know, who is a part-time stay at home dad, and told me he’s often in the park with his son so he observes all the nannies. He told me that Sharon is, by far, the best one. The most engaged and present (NOT on her cell phone) and the most attentive. He told me I’m lucky to have her and I could not agree more! Please call me if you need part-time help and I’ll give you her contact info. Ideally it would be to work Wednesdays and Fridays all from 8-5 or 9-6. My cell is 917-331-6541.

    We’re moving to DC and so our amazing nanny, Violet, is available starting June 15! Violet has over 20+ years of experience (including as a baby nurse) and besides being a wonderful person at the core, she is loving, reliable, consistent, punctual, silly and playful and utterly trustworthy. Violet has become a key member of our family and always jumps in to clean up, do laundry, prep our daughter’s meals, and so on. When I come home at night, they are always laughing and playing.

    Violet would prefer working with babies or young children but entertaining all opportunities. You can reach out directly (call or text) to Violet if you are interested.

    Our fabulous nanny, Violet, is available starting June 15. We are moving out of the NY area, otherwise we would absolutely have wanted to keep Violet for years to come.

    She came to us from a glowing recommendation—and we have been amazed at how she has exceeded our expectations—to quote her last family (she was with them for 4.5 years):

    “Besides being a wonderful person at the core, she is loving, reliable, consistent, punctual, silly and playful and utterly trustworthy. Violet became key to our household functioning by always proactively jumping in to clean up, do laundry, prep for school projects and running out to replenish our ever dissipating milk supply. If you are a new parent or looking for a positive change in caregiving you need a Violet in your life. She was instrumental in showing us the ropes when we had no idea how to care for babies (especially two at once) and when we needed to shift gears to create more calm. Violet found simple ways to constantly contribute to making sure our kids were growing through transitions and learning to become independent. She was also pivotal in reinforcing positive behaviors (being kind to others, picking up, manners etc.) and helped with a loving yet firm discipline plan in the heart of the toddler years.”

    Violet would prefer working with babies or young children but entertaining all opportunities. You can reach out directly (call or text) to Violet if you are interested.

    We are looking for a new job starting in September for our amazing nanny, Geeta, who has been with us for 10 years. We no longer need full-time help as our youngest son is starting Kindergarten in the fall. Geeta worked for my husband’s family taking care of his cousin for the 10 years before that so we know her quite well and really want to help her find a good fit.

    She is a wonderful person, truly warm and caring about our children as well as us. She is extraordinarily reliable (practically never misses a day of work) and completely flexible with hours — staying late whenever we need her even on last minute notice. She has helped raise both our kids and they absolutely adore her. Her primary focus is on doing whatever is best for the kids and makes them happy. She will schedule playdates, schlep the kids wherever, play with them for hours, etc. She also is amazing at taking care of our house and keeping everything in order, cooking meals, cleaning up after the kids, doing laundry, running errands if needed, etc.

    She is also available for several weeks over the summer should you need some extra help then.

    If you are interested in talking to her, please email or call me at jillgabin@gmail.com or 646-361-4258.

    We are looking for a new job starting in August or September for our nanny of three years (and with 15+ years experience). Heather is warm, loving and kind. She’s very social and active, taking part in my daughter’s classes with her, meeting other nannies and setting up playdates and expanding my girl’s group of friends. She adores the children she works with (and they love her) but she never steps over the line to take the place of the parent. She is easy to talk to and is very helpful and knowledgable about child development. She will help with cooking and while she doesn’t clean for us, she does make sure to keep the house clean and neat, and she does do the laundry. I am a single mom and could not image the last three years without Heather, my daughter would not be the girl she is today if it wasn’t for her love, devotion and direction.

    Our wonderful French/Spanish/English speaking nanny is available starting September. I am looking for a great family for her to join.

    When I first met Eugenie, I was immediately taken by her kind smile and nice way with my then 1 month old baby, Viviane. When she joined us full-time when Viviane turned 3 months, I could not have wished for a better person to care for her. Eugenie has been with us for 2 years now and she is very gentle and caring and has showered both of my kids with love. She has created a true bond with them: they love being around her and are truly comfortable in her presence. Not once has Viviane cried when I left for work!

    I had a tough few months with my eldest, Noah, when I had Viviane. He was trying to get my attention by being fresh which led to a lot of scolding. When Eugenie was with him, she was wonderful at being there for him, listening to him; she was kind yet firm. I think it really helped him calm down and ultimately accept his sister. Eugenie also helped him toilet train and he hasn’t had an accident since. He has told her numerous times that he loves her (unsolicited – as does his sister) and has told me that she is a lot of fun to play with. They sometimes draw together too and it’s fun to come home to some beautiful artwork! Eugenie shows true appreciation for what he does: artwork, good behavior etc and he responds well to that. Eugenie picks him up from school and takes care of both kids (park, bath, dinner) until my husband or I come home.

    One of the reasons I was thrilled to work with Eugenie is because she is fluent in French and I wanted my kids to learn the language. Both understand it completely and both speak a little. Eugenie is also fluent in English and in Spanish!

    I completely trust Eugenie and that my kids are safe with her. At my request, she calls me anytime something significant happens and also seeks my advice on a number of things. She has taken both kids to the doctor when they didn’t feel great and has handled these visits in the way I asked, where I could speak with the doctor and she would give me details when I got home.

    Eugenie has a nice way of letting my husband and me be the parents and being there to support us while taking our directions and cues for how we would like her to take care of the kids. For instance, when I said I didn’t want them to eat a particular snack and preferred fresh fruit instead, Eugenie has since made sure we would always have fresh fruit at home and I would often find it precut in the fridge. I shared I wasn’t keen on pre made baby food so every day Eugenie would make Viviane food from scratch and adapted to her age (eg puréed when she started eating solids and now regular food).

    Eugenie feeds the children, does their laundry, she plays with them, talks to them, takes my little one to dance and music classes, and takes her along to pickup her brother from school. Eugenie has also been great at organizing play dates for Viviane and sends me pictures every day of Viviane doing her thing: eating, in the park, with her friends etc.

    Viviane is growing up and she will be going to school in September. My heart swells when I think of all of the positive things that Eugenie has done for our family – I could not recommend her more highly. I am very happy to talk about her to any family considering working with her and help her however I can.

    All the best,
    Claire

    Nanny Available: Our fantastic nanny of 8 years is available for a new family. We live in Hoboken but our nanny has been commuting to us from queens for 8 years! She has been with us since my kids were both born, and has seen them through infant, toddler and now little kid stages. She cared for my boys like they were her own, loving and nurturing them. She is HIGHLY professional, incredibly reliable and dependable – rarely asking for time off, and always on time. She is organized, reliable, timely, does all aspects related to childcare and keeping our home orderly, clean and tidy. She kept the household running while I was at work – our house was always immaculate, all laundry done, etc. The kids were always well cared for, loved, clean and fed! I have been so thankful for her as part of our family, and would love to find her a new family. Please contact me directly (Rachel) at 917.992.8141

    We are unexpectedly moving to FL this month, and I would love to connect our nanny, Marines (pronounced MaryNEZ), with another family who will appreciate her as much as we do. She has made my post-maternity-leave transition back to work much easier than I ever imagined. Each morning my 3-month old breaks into a smile when she comes in the door, and I find it hard to leave for work because I enjoy chatting with her so much.

    Marines has just transitioned from her previous family of 8 years, during which she never took a sick day. She has been amazingly observant and intuitive with our 3 month old. (I have learned a lot about how to interact with babies from watching her with my son!) Just by observing, she picked up on home preferences and patterns that I didn’t even point out. We have never asked her to clean, but I come home to a spotless house every day. She is great with our dog, always on time, and loves being outside as much as possible. She is Venezuelan and her previous charges are now fluent in Spanish.

    She is available to be a full-time nanny for any hours you need.

    Feel free to e-mail/call/text me for more information:

    Every parent looks for that one person who fits uniquely into their experience while bringing a sense of stability when parental care can’t be possible 24/7. This person often should have gentle care, coupled by the capacity to encourage adventure and exploration, that is, both child friendly, safe and responsible. Never lacking the provision of discipline which develops the beautiful potentiality of each child.

    Look no further! My name is Michelle and I am seeking to be employed as a nanny with a family whose goals are geared at bringing out the best in their child/children. Please see my contact info

    Caring nanny available!

    My husband and I have known Sherryl Ann Benjamin for over 4 years. She was a full-time nanny to our daughter when she was a baby, and is now a full-time nanny to our son who is 5 months old. Sherryl Ann is wonderfully loving, caring, and dependable. As a first time mom, I found Sherryl Ann’s experience to be extremely helpful. She helped keep our children on a good nap schedule, and often reads and sings to them. Even after she is no longer in our employment, we will continue to have her babysit on the weekends or evenings whenever possible because she has such a great rapport with both our children.

    Sherryl Ann attended a refresher baby CPR course at Mount Sinai West this past Spring. She also has many years of experience babysitting babies and children. She is open and honest and helps the children socialize. She is friends with other nannies and arranges for playdates for the children. She is never late and is flexible with her schedule. She will be with us through mid-September when our son transitions to daycare (and available part-time from now till then). Please contact her directly at 917-792-9101 for availability.

    I highly recommend Sherryl Ann as a part-time or full-time nanny to children of all ages. Feel free to contact me at 646-642-1287 if you have any further questions.

    We are moving to California in January and looking to help our nanny find a new family. Andrea has been with us for the last year and a half since my daughter was 6 weeks old. I went back to work when my daughter was 8 weeks old and was a tired, stressed out mess. Andrea made the transition easy. She is an excellent caregiver- kind, attentive, creative, and anticipates my daughters needs. She genuinely loves my daughter, and I know that my daughter is safe and well taken care of when she is with her. If we could convince Andrea to move to California, we would absolutely have her join us. Andrea has become a seamless part of our family, and I thank you her for the kind, funny, and out- going child that my daughter has become. Andrea nurtures her kind and caring side, and through classes and organizing play dates, my daughter has become very social. Andrea is very professional. She is timely and has never missed a day. She keeps our daughter’s room clean and organized and prepares all of her food. She has been a tremendous help to us as first time parents and knows how to advise and help while still allowing you to be the parent. She also has experience as a baby nurse and was with another family for several years before joining ours. She will be available full time in January, and we can be flexible if she finds part time work or work as a baby nurse for nights and weekends before then.

    I (Nicolle) may be reached at (215) 435-6503 or nsunderwood@gmail.com and Andrea may be reached at (347) 693-6584 or andreafar1108@yahoo.com.

    Hello! My name is Joey Mazzarino and I wanted to post about our nanny, Terry St. Catherine. Terry has been with us since our first daughter was sixteen months old, back in early 2007. Now both of our girls are in school all day, so we no longer need a full time nanny. Terry is a wonderful person to work with your children. She is kind, loving and responsible. Terry not only watched the kids but she also cooked for them and cleaned up the apartment. She is amazing. So, if you know anyone that is looking for a full time nanny, let me know. My email is Joeymonkey@aol.com It would be my pleasure to put you in touch with Terry. Thanks so much.

    Hello,
    My name is Joey Mazarino and I am trying to help our wonderful nanny, Terry St. Catherine find a new family to work with. Terry has been with our family since 2007. She is kind, patient and responsible. She also goes above and beyond in her work. She used to cook just for our daughter but when she noticed me trying her food, she started cooking for our whole family. And she used to clean up the entire living room and kitchen without being asked. She really is fantastic! Please email me at joeymonkey@aol.com if you’d like Terry’s number. Thanks so much!
    Best
    Joey

    Hello – I am trying to help our amazing nanny Marian find a full-time role. She has been with us for over 3 years since our daughter was 3 months old and is the most loving, warm and caring caregiver. Now that my daughter is in school most of the day, we don’t need full-time care anymore, but we so wish we could keep Marian. Please reach out to me at dorybutler@gmail.com and I can tell you more.

    Hello –
    Our wonderful nanny Sharon has been an amazing addition to our family since our daughter was 3 months old. Sadly, we are moving out of town and want to help her find a new full-time family.

    For over 2 and a half years Sharon has helped guide the development of our daughter into a caring, inquisitive, polite, social, disciplined, funny, well-rounded toddler! We seriously don’t know what we would have done without her – being new parents she helped us navigate the ins and outs of parenthood from learning tools to buy to safety measures to take. She has been a constant source of guidance to myself and my husband and has been a nurturing, dedicated, reliable and loving teacher, friend and caretaker to our daughter.

    If we could take Sharon with us we would – any family is lucky to have her. We are dedicated to helping her find a new family. If you are looking for a nanny I’m happy to answer any questions you may have – feel free to reach out at nicole_visconti@yahoo.com.
    Thank you!

    Our amazing nanny is availabe for a position in Manhattan.

    Our children are calm and relaxed in Wendyann’s care and they fell in love with her right away. When our daughter was a newborn in 2011, Wendyann provided her with the loving attentive care a new baby needs. When our son was born in 2014 Wendyann was able to provide our daughter with the attention she craves as a toddler, while simultaneously giving our son the care and closeness he needed.

    Wendyann engages children in creative play, songs, books, activities, park outings and even brings in worksheets and art projects. Wendyann is intelligent, warm and very caring and has given our children outstanding care. She is incredibly capable and is able to provide the expert care needed for newborn, toddlers and kids of all ages. We feel so lucky to have had her as part of our family.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions

    Best,
    Dalia

    My name is Bianca and I am the mother of an 18 month old little girl on UWS. We have had the pleasure to have Ansha be a nanny for our family and she has truly been an incredible addition to our home over the past years. Ansha is a wonderful person, who is kind, honest and absolutely lovely with our child who is overjoyed to see her every day. Not only is my child super loved by our nanny, but she is taught so many wonderful developmental elements. For her age, my child has so many words, verbally responds to questions and listens to directions!! All throughout the day she is read to, they sing songs and dance and she also takes her to any of her classes in the neighborhood as well as the park daily. I often work from home and see the interactions in person and it truly warms my heart. She tidies up all of my child’s area and (some of ours) and helps her with her meals, snacks and bath time. Truly, we don’t want her to leave, but our finances require us to make a lifestyle shift. When I initially called her references I was told, I would not regret hiring her and this has been true to this very moment. We are committed to keep her until she finds a great family to be a part of as well. Any family that has her would be so blessed and your child or children would blossom. She has experience with multiples and flexibility of schedule. I will also be happy to directly answer any questions you may have.

    WONDERFUL UWS NANNY AVAILABLE

    Hello Parents:

    We unfortunately need to move out of the New York area so that I can take a new job. As a result, our son’s amazing nanny, Amanda, is in need of a new child and family to care for. I cannot say enough great things about Amanda! She has watched my son for the past 3 years starting when he was just an infant. She is both an incredibly kind and loving person and extremely professional. She has grown children and is a grandmother herself. She has excellent judgment where I have always been able to trust her completely. She has organized play dates and taught my son Spanish. She is always reliable and on time. She is meticulously neat (actually much neater than I am). Most important, she is simply beloved by my son who basically regards her as another parent.

    More than anything else here in New York, we are very sad to leave Amanda and will miss her immensely. Any family would be extremely lucky to have her!

    Please feel free to contact me at claire3ATgmail.com if you would like further information.

    Dianne is a fantastic caregiver with 20+ years of experience including 7 months with our family. She is leaving because we’re having financial problems and cannot afford her anymore. She is warm & caring, but also enforces boundaries. She ensures my child, Hudson, is engaged, proactively setting up play dates & activities. She is extremely responsible, prompt & well-organized. She is always flexible, willing to accommodate our schedules. Simply put, no recommendation can express how lucky we were to have found Dianne.

    Hi everyone! I’m looking for a caring & loving family for our amazing nanny of 8 years, Vishma! Vishma has taken care of our three kids (ages 11, 8 & 6) as if they were her own and countless people have commented to me what a fabulous job she does! Vishma has 20 years of experience and even more than that has the warmth and love that you want for someone taking care of your kids! Vishma has gone over and above what we’ve asked her to do, from light cooking, to housekeeping (laundry, kitchen straightening, etc), arranging playdates, driving kids to activities, homework help, etc etc. She is timely, rarely ever calls in sick & is overall just a very responsible person who takes her job seriously! Please call her at (973)941-0015 or Jen (me) at (917)930-5491 if you have any questions.

    NB: Vishma is live-out only.
    Thanks!

    Hi there!

    My family is moving from Austin to Manhattan this summer and we’re looking for 20-25 flexible day-time hrs per week of care for our baby starting sometime in August (she will be 5 months at that point). We’d like to partner with a family who already has a nanny and would be open to adding our baby into the mix part time OR a family who is looking to partner up for day-time care. The intention of the arrangement is to subsidize the cost of a nanny for the families involved and increase the hourly compensation for a wonderful nanny who can care for more than one child at a time (I’d say that’s a win-win!)

    A little about us: My husband will be a grad student at Columbia and I will be working from home with some travel in the fall. We will live very close to campus (Amsterdam and w118th) and are willing to host or come to your place. Please let me know if you or a friend is interested!
