Seeking family and nanny (UWS)

1. Seta Toroyan 2. storoyan@gmail.com 3. Cora is 7 months old (born Oct 30, 2012). We are searching for a nanny and a family. 5. Our hours are somewhat flexible as my husband works from home and I’m a grad student. My internship hours are Tues + Wed 8.45–5.15, Mon + Thurs 10-7, but we realize that no-one else has those hours, and we can do a regular 9-5, or be flexible as my husband will be home. 6.

There is a playground a couple of blocks away. 12. We could do a class if it wasn’t expensive. 13. We’re planning to give her organic milk / meat. 14. We need almost 5 days coverage so are looking for a family who want both children to be looked after by one nanny rather than someone who wants to split the hours. Ideally we would love to start mid August to give the children time to get adjusted to the new setup. I also have friends with kids in the building who would help out in a pinch. 16. I found out about the site by calling Columbia University.

Seeking to help nanny find additional hours

We heard about your shareournanny site from previous postings on the moms' list - we posted this last week to FTUWS but would like to also list it on your site. It is to share a nanny by days (i.e. she will still work for Heidi on MWF but my T/Th opening is now available.) Let me know if you have any questions and many thanks! Angela We are trying to find a part-time job for our fabulous nanny -- she is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays, all day, flexible hours. Mira has been with us for nearly 7 years, beginning when my first child was 4 months old. We then had twin boys (Mira stayed with my daughter the night they were born) and she has cared for our girl through my bedrest pregnancy, premature birth, c-section recovery, and then the arrival of our newborn boys. Thus, Mira is experienced from preemie-newborn through school-aged child; she has her own children who are being raised abroad. She has a mother's instincts when it comes to safety, illness, age-appropriateness, and feeding. Many times she has alerted me to my kids' sicknesses, behavioral changes, or growth spurts. Mira has also suggested classes and activities for the kids that I didn't know existed. In addition to being responsible for school pick-up and drop-off, classes, playdates, activities, and the park, Mira has accompanied us to doctor and dentist appointments -- as well as hospital visits. Our boys have special needs that she is very patient and caring about; she has worked closely with their therapists and employed their techniques. She is always very interested in learning exactly what is going on with the kids, and asks the right questions as she has a great deal of common sense. We trust her completely with our kids, and it's a relief to know they are in her care. Around the home, Mira cooks for and feeds the kids, does their laundry and tidies their rooms, and does a few household chores. She also points out when the kids have outgrown clothes, need something new, or have expressed interest in special toys or hobbies. She has also come on vacation with us. She is here legally, and also available on weekends. We pay her $15 per hour. Please contact me (Heidi) at Wensley@gmail.com if you are interested in hearing more or contacting her. You can reach Mira directly at 917-200-1335. The previous Tu/Th mom writes: For the past 16 months, Mira has been indispensable to us. Both my daughter and I looked forward to her presence each Tue/Thurs. As a SAHM, I was particularly worried that having someone in the home while I am also home would be disruptive, but that Mira is so pleasant and easy-going that it never felt "crowded" when we were both here at the same time, which was often. She helped with so many things: preparing healthy food, helping potty train, going to the doctor with me when my daughter was ill, even helping me prepare for guests and for entertaining on several occasions when we hosted dinner parties and holiday parties. We will miss Mira, but hope to help her find a great family and look forward to having her babysit our daughter for our occasional date nights as it is very important to us to stay in touch with her and maintain the relationship between her and our daughter, who adores her. Mira said that she is open to Manhattan, Queens, or Brooklyn, but no more than an hour from where she lives in Ridgewood, Queens. Please contact me (Angela) for more info at 917-498-4198.

Seeking to help nanny find additional hours

My part time nanny, Antoinetta, is looking to find additional days or hours as a nanny. We currently use her on Mondays and the occasional Tuesday. She attends school at night so this would be strictly day time hours, anywhere from 7:30 am to 6:30 pm and she is willing to travel anywhere in Mnahattan, the Bronx, Queens or Brooklyn. Ideally she would work with a family Wednesday-Friday or Saturday but I am open to a nanny-share on Mondays and Tuesdays if the family were close to my home, shared similar ideals and would be willing to have their child looked after in my home (single family townhouse in Bushwick). Addison (boy) is 10 weeks old and very sweet! Please contact me @ wendygallo1980@gmail.com if you'd like to discuss further.

Seeking family - already have nanny (South Prospect Park)

Dawne and Suzanne dawnecb@hotmail.com Searching for another family Baby girl - 7 months FT 8 to 5:30 but flexible South Prospect Park We have a cat Elevator building Start June 3rd We are lucky enough for my husband to be able stay home with our daughter starting in June. While we are happy that we can spend more time with Olivia, we are sad to be ending what has been a great & affordable nanny share situation. Anessa Vincent started with us in December when my daughter was 16 weeks old & the other child was 8 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 on Anessa and both families before we started – which we are happy to share with you. 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 can be flexible with schedule – coming early and staying late when asked. When I was having an especially busy morning she would come & pick up Olivia at our apartment to take her to The Daniels' home for the day. Currently her hours are for 8 AM – 5:30 PM Monday – Friday, although they are able to adjust those slightly if another family needs something different. Suzanne & Booth Daniels have been hosting with their daughter Abigail at their 2 bedroom condo 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. They are already set up with a pack & play in addition to a crib, baby proofing, lots of toys, 2 high chairs & a double stroller. I know they are also open to going to somebody else's home with Anessa if that works better for the next family. It’s been so nice knowing Olivia is so well cared for & has had a playmate (Abigail is 7 months old currently). We hope the next family to join them will enjoy the situation as much as we have. We are more than happy to answer any questions you have - you can reach us at boothandsuzanne@gmail.com. Thanks!
