Seeking to help nanny acquire additional hours

Seeking to help nanny acquire additional hours (UWS or anywhere on Manhattan) 1. Severine 2. severineany@yahoo.fr 3. My youngest son is 2 years old and our nanny is taking care of him since his birth as well as of his brother after school. 4. We have a great nanny for 2 years but our little one is starting preschool in May and we will need only our nanny in the afternoons from about 2.30pm to 6.30pm. 5. Our nanny will be available from the beginning of May every morning till 2.30pm (and we can be flexible if a family needs her a few times a week until 4.30pm). 6. We live on UWS and our nanny lives in UES/East Harlem. She can go anywhere on Manhattan but has to be at 2.45pm on the UWS for school pick up. [I skipped Q7 to Q13 because we are looking for additional hours for our nanny outside our home] 14. Our nanny can start working for another family from May 3rd. 15. Our nanny is great and we love her. She speaks English and French. She has a lot of experience with babies and kids of all ages. She used to take care of twins before working for us. She keeps our house incredibly clean and organized. Our nanny is in green card process and has a work permit. The only reason we are reducing her hours is because our youngest son enters preschool and we cannot afford to keep her full time. 16. I found out about www.shareournanny.com by a friend of mine who used this website.

Seeking Family to Share Nanny (Harlem)

1. First name: Brooks 2. Contact information – alyshiabrooksbowden@gmail.com or 917-940-4649 3. Age of child - Turns 1 in May 4. Already have an excellent nanny 5. We need full-time care and are hoping to share part-time. Ideally, we would share 2 to 3 days per week from 8:30 - 5:30, but we are open to a more flexible schedule. 6. We live in Harlem. 7. Are you willing to drop off your child at someone else's apt? Yes If yes, what area are you willing to go to? Harlem, Morningside Heights/Columbia area, possibly UWS or others along the west side if your home is near a subway station. 8. Do you have any pets? 2 cats (we keep them out of the living room area) 9. Does your child have any allergies? no 10. Does your building have an elevator (think double stroller!)? No. But, we are moving this summer to make it easier for the nanny (and us) to get in and out. 11. Does your neighborhood have a playground, nice places to walk? Yes! We are close to central park and to morningside park. 12. Would you be interested in signing up (and paying for) a "nanny and me" music class or gym class? Yes 13. Does your household have any dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc)? No. We prefer fresh organic foods, but we are not uptight about it. Our nanny helps with preparing the baby's food - a huge plus! 14. When would you be able to start nanny share? As early as May 1st if necessary, but we are hoping for June 1st/4th. 15. Any other relevant information you would like to share? We found a wonderful, energetic and caring nanny, who came with excellent references. A friend referred her to me because the children she currently works with are all starting school full-time and no longer need a nanny (after 4 years of working with them!). My daughter is incredibly social. She thrives from interacting with other children. We are interested in sharing our nanny with another family (or two) with a child (or two) that is similar in age so that the children can learn from one another and enjoy playing together. We are open to hosting or coming to your home. Ideally, we would share two to three days per week from 8:30 - 5:30. However, we are open to a more flexible schedule if that works better for you. 16. How did you find out about www.shareournanny.com? A friend referred me.

We are not sure yet about our move date, but our nanny will be available either in the beginning, middle, or end of June. She is loving, attentive, punctual, clean, and I trust her entirely. I am a new mom, and she taught me a lot about child care, including feeding, sleep training, etc. Her background check is clear. She is fluent in French and English. She previously worked as a home health aide, so I trust her to administer medication to my child. She is looking for a new part-time position, preferably in Harlem. 16. From another mom.

recommended to us by the three prior families she has worked for. Tamara has been working with us for two months
and in that time has helped sleep train my child and put him on a feeding schedule. Her background is in teaching and she constantly
talks to and reads to my son. She is truly the sweetest, kindest person I have ever met. She buys my son gifts all the time, even though I constantly tell
her not to. For her, being a nanny is not just a job, she genuinely loves the children she works with. I never worry that my son will be ignored with her, she really loves him and cares for him as a family member would. But most importantly, my son loves her!
