Seeking to help nanny find full time employment - has nanny share experience

Our wonderful nanny is looking for a new family to work with. Enid has taken care of our daughter and a colleague's little boy since they were three and four months old, respectively. Enid has so many wonderful qualities. Most importantly, she loves children and is responsible, reliable and confident. Our children have been safe and happy with her. She is loving, engaging, fun and creative and rose to the challenge of caring for two infants with remarkable ease. She has developed warm relationships with both of them and has accommodated the needs of both families with an open and easygoing attitude. Enid has been wonderful for our daughter's social and physical development and has helped foster good eating and sleeping habits. She developed creative solutions when we struggled with bottle-feeding and has gently yet purposely encouraged a healthy napping routine. Enid would be delighted to work with a single family and would happily consider another share situation as well. Enid has a terrific positive attitude and is very easy to communicate with. She is open to input and flexible, but also confident and capable. She has over 20 years of experience with glowing references from previous employers and families. She has cared for children of various ages and maintains good relationships with many of her previous employers. Two of the previous children Enid has cared for live in our neighborhood and are always running up to hug Enid and play with the babies when they see her outside. She enjoys taking children for walks, to parks and playrooms and arranging play dates with other children. At home, she engages our children in age appropriate activities, sings to them and plays with them. All four parents in our nanny share have demanding jobs, and Enid has always been punctual and flexible. It is with great sadness that we will say goodbye to Enid. She has been a dear friend and important part of our family. Our children love her and she is terrific with them. Both babies have been accepted into a employer-sponsored daycare, which is why we will have to say good bye to Enid. If you are looking for someone who is loving, energetic, confident and extremely talented with children, you cannot go wrong with Enid. She develops wonderful relationships with the children she cares for and hopes to find a family with whom she can grow. We have all been so grateful to have Enid as a part of our family. Please feel free to contact Enid directly at 646-479-7736 or contact me at rachel.niec@gmail.com with any questions. Enid currently works with us in the Upper East Side. She is open to working anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

Our outstanding, long-term babysitter, Seraphine Coutain, is looking for a new assignment, as our three children are all now in school full-time. Seraphine has worked with us for 12 years, since our oldest son was born. She is warm, intelligent, reliable and responsible. She looks out for the kids and their best interests at all times, and we have never had a moment of worry for any of our children when they've been in her care. She has taken our kids to museums, playgrounds, and libraries, and on day trips and play dates across the city. She will cook for the kids and is comfortable with dietary restrictions. She also happens to be terrific with plants. We cannot recommend her skills more highly. She is seeking full-time work but would also be interested in talking about part-time opportunities, especially for the first half of the day. (She could then continue to help us out in the afternoons.) Please call or email me for more information. I can be reached at 212-286-5857 (w) or 212-580-2613 (h).

Seeking to help[ nanny find fulltime employment

BLOG POST: I am hoping to find Kim, our amazing nanny, a new family to work for starting beginning of May. Kim has a very sweet, loving, and professional demeanor and is very honest and punctual. She has many years of experience with children from new born to school-age, and will read to your child, plan fun activities, help with potty training, and take him or her to the bookstore or park, among other places. She is not the type of nanny that likes to stay inside all day watching TV. My sons just love her and would run and give her hugs and kisses in the morning and demand the same before she left for the evening. Due to a change in family circumstances, we unfortunately are not able to offer her the hours she would like, so as such, our loss is your gain! She is looking for a full-time up to 45 hours a week, preferably in Manhattan. You can contact me, Dee, with your questions at uwsmom (at) rocketmail (dot) com or for additional information, or her directly at 347-737-0296.

seeking to help nanny find full time employment

April 18, 13 To Whom It May Concern- I strongly recommend my awesome and lovely babysitter, Ms. Wendy Bynoe, for employment. We have had the pleasure of using her help for taking care of our two lovely kids, boy (5) and girl (4) for the last 6 years, where she has been entrusted with immense responsibilities. Since I am a stay at home parent I have had the opportunity to observe Wendy¹s professional skills as a nanny as well as her human side. She is very patient, loving, and creative with the kids. Her enthusiasm to come up with various projects, such as art and science, simply stands out. My children have enjoyed and continue to enjoy her energy and creativity. She is excellent with homework with the kids. Regardless of work hours and other pressure, she has always been committed and regular on the job. She has rarely missed work or taken unnecessary leave. I strongly recommend her and it would be a mistake NOT to hire her! Should have any questions, please feel free to email me at Radhika_dalal@att.net or call me at 917 880 7968. Alternatively you could reach Wendy at 347 873 1108 or email her at wendy_bynoe@hotmail.com We are going to miss her a lot, however it¹s time for her to move on.

Does your household have any dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc)? No 14. When would you be able to start nanny share? June 1st 15. Any other relevant information you would like to share? We got the sad news today that the family we have been sharing our nanny with will no longer be needing child care as of June 1st. This means we need to find another family to share her services with our 7 month old daughter, Abigail. We love everything about our current situation - especially the level of attention the girls have gotten. We looked at a lot of child care options before finding this one & found that sharing a nanny was far more affordable than the daycares we considered. Anessa started with us in December when my daughter was 8 weeks old & the other child was 16 weeks old. She had been working in another nanny share position for over 3 years and came highly recommended by all of her previous employers, with whom she is still in touch. We also did a full background check of both Anessa & ourselves before she started – which we are happy to share with the next family we share with for added peace of mind. She is an incredible resource as we all worked to figure out life with our infants. Anessa takes initiative and has found activities, classes & story hours for our children with other similarly aged children in the neighborhood. She also takes care of the kids’ laundry, feeds them, reads with them, keeps them on a schedule and writes up terrific end of day reports so that we know what we have in store for the evening. She even finds time to snap a cute photo or 2 & sends it to us during the day. Anessa is incredibly reliable and is can be flexible with schedule – coming early and staying late when asked. Currently her hours are for 8 AM – 5:30 PM Monday – Friday, although we are able to adjust those slightly if another family needs something different. We have been hosting at our 2 bedroom home in Prospect Park South on Caton – 4 blocks from the Church Avenue Stop for the B/Q & are close to the B41, B49 and B35 bus routes. We are open to the other family hosting or splitting the hosting responsibilities. We are already set up with a pack & play in addition to a crib, baby proofing, lots of toys, 2 high chairs & a double stroller. My husband works in an office in the back of the apartment & is around most days if Anessa ever needs an extra hand. Beyond being a fabulous person (she even tolerates our cat), Anessa will provide our children with love, and they will love her in return. Our daughter will be an only child & we love the closeness a nanny share gives her with another baby, even at 7 months she is learning to share & wait her turn – it’s so nice knowing she has a playmate & we hope the next family to join us will enjoy the situation as much as we do. We are more than happy to answer any questions you have. 16. How did you find out about www.shareournanny.com?We used you to find our last nanny share
