Seeking family and nanny (Bed-Stuy)

Our name is Scott and Charlotte and we are seeking a family to share a nanny with that is willing to drop off their child at our home in Bed-Stuy. We are really seeking a family that shares our belief in finding a wonderful nanny, sharing the costs to pay them very well so we find a nanny that will treat our child like she was their own. I am due in the end of Sept. and we are looking for a family that is trying to prepare ahead and will be ready to share a full time nanny in the beginning of November (Monday - Friday, 8AM - 6PM). Unfortunately, we are not willing to drop off our child at another family's house, so I am looking for a family that will be open to dropping their child off at my home (located off the G, J, M, & Z line). I do not have any pets, I won't know if my child has any allergies until she is born, and my building does have an elevator, although I am on the ground floor. I have a small playground 1 block away, a very large park (Von King Park) 4 blocks away, and a nice front yard, so when the weather is nice we would like the nanny to take the kids to enjoy the sun as much as possible and enjoy the outdoors. We would love to be able to share costs with another family to be able to sign up and eventually pay for classes that the nanny can take the kids to. If anyone is open to sharing a nanny and agrees with all the items mentioned above, please email me at charlotte.salvacion@gmail.com. I would love to then begin searching for the perfect nanny together with the perfect nanny share family.

Seeking family (already have nanny) (East Williamsburg)

Hello, My name is Bob and our little one's name is Adee (6 months). We live in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn near Cooper Park. We currently have a fantastic and responsible Nanny that has been with us for 3+ months. We are looking to find another family with 1-2 children. Here are details of what we are looking for: 1-2 Children; Ideally 2 and both older than 1 year old to complement our 6 month old girl. We own our house that is 2 blocks from Cooper Park in East Williamsburg (the closer you are the better). We would like to host exclusively Monday - Thursday as we have a house with good space, so you would drop your child(ren) off at our house each morning and pick up in the evenings. We utilize our Nanny Monday - Thursday 8:30am - 6:30pm (not on Fridays). If you need help on Fridays, then you would need to host that one day. We have play area and can house toys and all needed supplies and lunch/snacks. 1-2 visits to Cooper Park and local library are standard fare. We have a medium sized dog who is great with kids. We would split $120 monthly travel allowance for our nanny. Depending on # of children, rate would be in the $12-14/hour range. Ideally looking for full-time (40 or more hours per week commitment). Standard paid holidays are included for our nanny who is great. We are open to a temporary full-time family who could commit from NOW through August with 1-2 children as well. We and our nanny would need to meet with both parents and all interested little ones before any decisions are made. Please read the above closely and contact us if you believe you'd be a good fit!

Seeking to help nanny find fulltime employment

1. My name is Brooks. After over three great years with our kids, our wonderful nanny Rosalba is looking for a new full-time family or share because our children will be at school during the week starting in September. 2. alyshiabrooksbowden AT gmail.com 3. She has experience with all ages. She was with our oldest from 1yo and my youngest from day 1 4. Searching for a new family or share 5. Full-time 6. Manhattan and Bronx are best 7. N/A 8. Pets are no problem 9. N/A 10. Elevator is helpful, especially with a share, because she likes to get outside every day if possible. She has worked with walk-ups with us through the years. 11. N/A 12. She is great about taking initiative and finding free events for kids and taking trips to the zoos and museums. 13. She has been very helpful with preparing food for the children and ensuring that their diet is balanced 14. We could potentially share in August to help with the transition. We will no longer need her during the week starting September 14th. 15. Rosalba speaks Spanish. This has been a huge asset to our house. I have learned basic Spanish and both of my kids are fluent. Part of the way I plan to maintain her relationship with my kids is through Spanish lessons on weekends. She has truly been like a member of our family. We are hopeful that we can help her by finding a great new share for her. She is enthusiastic and energetic with the kids and reliable and kind to me. Without her, I would never have been able to finish graduate school and maintain a high-stress career. Can't say enough good things! 16. Long-time follower.

Seeking family - already have nanny (Park Slope)

1. First names: Kristin & Justin 2. Contact information: crowdofstars@gmail.com 3. Age of child: We have a 22-month-old son, who will enter a 2s program on M-W-F in September, and another baby boy due in October, who would enter the share in January. 4. We have a nanny and are searching for another family. 5. Days and hours needed: full time, Monday through Friday. 6. Neighborhood we live in: North Park Slope 7. Are you willing to drop off your child at someone else's apt? Yes, if your apartment is within a reasonable distance from ours. We're also well baby-proofed and otherwise equipped to host or share hosting responsibilities. 8. Do you have any pets? No. 9. Does your child have any allergies? None that we know of. 10. Does your building have an elevator (think double stroller!)? Yes. 11. Does your neighborhood have a playground, nice places to walk? Yes. Many. 12. Would you be interested in signing up (and paying for) a "nanny and me" music class or gym class? Yes. We're open to classes. 13. Does your household have any dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc)? No, but we are happy to accommodate anyone who does. 14. When would you be able to start a nanny share? Ideally August 2015. 15. Any other relevant information you would like to share? A spot is opening up in our nanny share, and we are looking for a like-minded family in the area to share our fun, warm, and dependable nanny. We have been very happy in our current share with another family, in which our nanny has cared for our son and the other family's two children, for almost two years, but sadly, they're moving to the 'burbs. In the fall, our toddler will be attending a 2s program on Monday-Wednesday-Friday, and I am due to give birth to our second child. So, after my maternity leave, this would mean our nanny caring for solely one of our children and your child on 3 days per week, and for our two children plus your child on 2 days per week. We have found that there are many unexpected benefits to our current situation, which is very similar to the one we're proposing—all of which we’re happy to share in greater detail if you should like to learn more. 16. How did you find out about www.shareournanny.com? Hard to remember. We've known about the site for a long time.
