Seeking nanny and Nanny Share (Sunnyside, Morningside Heights, off 1 Train)

1. Marnie 2. marniepweir@gmail.com -or- 347-989-5852 3. Our son is 8 weeks (as of 11/16/12), but would be about 15 weeks at start of nanny share 4. We are searching for a nanny share. We don't have a nanny, so hope to find one together, and/or join a family that already has their nanny. We also prefer to share a nanny with another baby, though are open to a family with an older child. 5. We will need a full time service. Monday-Friday 8:00-8:30am until 6:30-7:00pm. 6. We live in Sunnyside, Queens 7. We are willing to drop off at an apartment in our neighborhood (Sunnyside, Queens). I am also willing to drop off in Morningside Heights, which is where I work, or somewhere between 42nd St. and 116th St., provided it's off of the #1 subway line. 8. We have no pets 9. No known allergies, though our son is still very young. 10. We live on the 5th floor of an elevator building. 11. Our community has a number of playgrounds, with one directly across the street from our apartment. We also live across from Sunnyside Gardens, a historic residential area that is lovely for taking walks. 12. Perhaps, though perhaps when our son is a bit older. 13. Yes, I require a gluten-free diet, so we have to be careful of cross-contamination. 14. We would be looking to start a nanny share by January 2013. 15. This is our first child. We are looking for a nanny who is warm, kind, responsible, trustworthy, and bright. We also are looking for someone who has an appreciation of/is well-versed in child development; who regularly goes on walks with, reads, sings, and communicates with our son; and who takes the job seriously (but with the ease and humor that childcare inevitably also requires!). Hopefully there is a family out there with similar requests! :-) 16. We found out about "shareournanny" through a friend.

Seeking family to share full time nanny (Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Prospect Heights)

Seeking family to share full-time nanny in Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, or Prospect Heights We live in Clinton Hill on Greene Avenue near Grand Avenue, and we are looking to share childcare with a family within reasonable walking distance. We are equally happy to host the nanny share at our apartment or to alternate hosting between the two apartments. Our son is 12.5 months, and we hope to share with a family whose child is a similar age, though we are flexible if the location/hours are a good match. Our nanny Cheryll currently works for us full time, Monday-Friday, 8:30AM - 6:30PM. Cheryll is terrific and came to us with glowing references. She had three years of experience with twins prior to working with us in share arrangements, and she is amazingly loving with the children under her care. Our son absolutely adores her, and we feel lucky to see him light up when she enters our home. She has been a nanny in the neighborhood for nearly 12 years, and is incredibly pro-active about taking the babies out to free activities around the neighborhood -- songs in the park, story hour at the library, etc. Our son is undoubtedly enriched both developmentally and emotionally during the time he spends with Cheryll.

Seeking to help nanny find full time employment

Seeking New Family For Our Nanny Our Nanny, Vashty, is very loving, extremely reliable, trustworthy and bright. She is very well-versed in child development and has taught us so much. We are moving away and truly regret losing her. Vashty has cared for our 1 and ½ year-old son since he turned 5 weeks old in May 2011. I am trying to help her find a nice family to work with.

We credit Vashty with his advanced verbal skills. She spoke to him constantly, and at 18 months, he has over 100 words, including “please” and “thank you.” Vashty truly understands children.

Seeking to help nanny acquire additional hours

1. Stephanie 2. stonnes@gmail.com, 917-696-6977 3. our nanny has watched any age 4. We have a nanny Monday-Thursday 5. We are looking for people interested in having a nanny on Fridays or over the weekend 6. She can travel to any neighborhood. I am writing about my nanny, Blanca, who is absolutely excellent. She has been watching my son for more than four months--since he was five months old, and she has been great from the start. She is very caring, and it is clear that our son adores her (and vice-versa). She is punctual (actually arrives a bit early, which is great because I have to run out the door to make my train), and states her opinion but knows that the final say is mine (for example, she said that she thought my 7+ month old needed an extra solid meal because he was getting hungry, but let it be when I said I wanted to wait a bit--and as soon as we added that meal I could tell he was starving for it!). She takes my son on walks, to classes, and makes friends with other nannies and babies in the park. She sings him all sorts of songs and makes funny faces that crack him up. She knows how to handle breastmilk and can make solid food dishes. She tidies while he is sleeping. If you are interested please let me know so that I can pass on her information!

Seeking to help nanny find additional hours

I have been working with a very tender, peaceful and responsible part-time nanny since my son since was born in September 2012. We are part of a nanny share and I am sadly unable to continue my participation due to a change in my work schedule. I have truly enjoyed working with Mingmar and watching how she has cared for my son. I am trying to help her find a nice family to work with either one or two days a week from 9am - 5pm. Mingmar is available on Mondays and/or Fridays and is available to start as soon as needed. We live in Lefferts Garden/Prospect Park Brooklyn but Mingmar currently works in other neighborhoods as Bushwick and Greenpoint. She is $15 an hour and provides her own lunch. I am happy to provide contact info for the other moms involved in the share as well as the mom from her previous long-term nanny position for recommendations. I can't say enough good things about Mingmar Shepa. She is mature and is very gentle, sweet and thoughtful with my little boy. She is on time if not a little early every time. She is tidy and is happy to take care of any of my baby's needs (including his laundry, etc). She is never texting or doing anything that doesn't relate to her time with him. She regularly goes on walks and reads and talks to him. She takes the job seriously and has a very pleasant, warm and calm energy that she brings to him and our home. Mingmar's cell is 646-249-6437. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions. All the best, Vadie Turner (Lefferts Garden) 917-446-0198 vadieturner@hotmail.com
