Seeking family - already have nanny (West Side)

1. Wendy 2. Wendy.weisman@gmail.com 3. Age of child: 5 months 4. Already have a GREAT nanny 5. Days and hours needed: 3 full days (e.g. 8-6pm) per week when the nanny will care for both babies at once 6. We live in Chelsea. A family can drop off in Chelsea, or if you live anywhere on a West side subway line perhaps the nanny can pick up the child and bring her/him to Chelsea. 7. We could drop off as long as the train commute is feasible for our nanny or for us. West side is preferred. 8. We have no pets. 9. No allergies. 10. Elevator building. 11. We have several nice playgrounds, Chelsea Piers nearby, and an indoor playroom in our co-op for bad weather days. 12. Baby classes are fine – and our nanny is a professional singer! 13. No dietary restrictions, just generally healthy food. 14. When would you be able to start nanny share? ASAP. 15. Relevant info: We did a wonderfully successful share with this nanny for my older daughter. Our ideal match family would be with a child under one year, living in or near Chelsea, seeking a share for three full days a week, starting before September. But we are flexible – email if you think it can work! 16. Google search.

She has extensive experience as a nanny, always professional and always engaged with our son. She is connected with a network of nannies who meet and arrange play-dates for kids. She entertains as well as educates our son while exploring museums, parks and playgrounds - CPR certified too. My wife and I knew we selected the right nanny for us but that was reaffirmed when our son's preschool teacher took us aside to share how our nanny not always asks her how his day was but what they are working on in class. We absolutely love her! 5. Days and Hours Needed: We only need the share in the late afternoons but are willing to pay a bit more to keep our nanny.

Seeking to help nanny find full time employment

Our wonderful, warm and experienced former nanny is looking for a full-time position - as a share or not. Anita took care of our son from the time he was 4 months old until he was 4. She is warm, affectionate and responsible. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education from Nepal (where she is from) - singing, playing laughing fills our apartment when she is there. She has been a nanny for many years and has an 11 year old daughter. In the 4 years that Anita was with us, we have been the part of 3 different shares. In all of them there was a younger child and an older one. Anita was always able to make sure that the needs of both children were being met and they were both always entertained. She was also always able to balance her responsibilities to both families. When she is taking care of just my son, their loving bond - that they established from the beginning - is palpable. Her focus is totally on him. He is always occupied both inside and outside our home - at the playground, on playmates, at the library, at the park or the Botanical Gardens. Please email me if you are interested at: sari.fensterheim@gmail.com Thanks, Sari

Wonderful nanny seeks additional hours Our wonderful and loving nanny, Michelle Cambray, is looking for additional hours on Wednesdays (or Thursdays, we can be flexible with which day), evenings, and on the weekends. She is flexible with hours and can sleep over and/or travel as well. Michelle has been taking care of our 2.5 year old daughter for over a year and is also now taking care of our 9 month old.
