Days and hours needed prefer full time, M-F around 8 am – 6:30 pm, but would consider part time schedule; part time, 8 am to 2:30 pm could also work well. 6. Neighborhood you live in Prospect Heights Brooklyn 7. Are you willing to drop off your child at someone else's apt? Yes, if near the Barclays Center 8. Do you have any pets? No 9. Does your child have any allergies? No 10. Does your building have an elevator (think double stroller!)? Yes 11. Does your neighborhood have a playground, nice places to walk? Yes, and our building has play space on the roofdeck. 12. Would you be interested in signing up (and paying for) a "nanny and me" music class or gym class? Yes 13. Does your household have any dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, kosher, etc)? No 14. When would you be able to start nanny share? ASAP or beginning of the month, etc. September ideally, but could start in August if the other family is comfortable having our toddler around all day as well (he starts school in September) 15. Any other relevant information you would like to share? We couldn’t be happier with the care our son received from his nanny and the relationship he formed with the other child- an almost sibling-like bond. We were afforded the luxury of individualized child care while also giving our son the opportunity to develop his social skills by spending so much time with another child. Our nanny has been instrumental in creating a vibrant social life for our son and the other little girl in our share. She has identified classes, sing alongs, and different events in the neighborhood for them to attend. She has been active in setting up playdates. She is well-known and well-liked among the many children and caregivers in our large building and so has helped integrate our son and our family into a large and wonderful community. On several occasions, neighbors whom I hardly know have approached me to tell me that they have observed our nanny with my son during the day and they just want to let me know what a wonderful, caring nanny he has. Also, because our nanny is extremely active and knows the neighborhood and other nannies really well, the kids were always doing fun activities, rain or shine, and were always surrounded by other children. We have had all the benefits of having a nanny and the pros of a daycare situation without any of the negatives. The cost was also greatly reduced. 16. How did you find out about My husband posted here 2.5 years ago and found a share for our older child
