seeking to help nanny find full-time employment

1. Stefan 2. sa610 AT columbia.edu 4. seeking to help nanny to find full-time employment It is with deep gratitude that we are posting this reference for our nanny who has worked for us for more than a year. We are very grateful to her because our son Christopher, who was just three months old when she started to work for us, has grown under her care into such a happy, communicative, and curious toddler. When Linda arrives in the morning at our apartment, Christopher’s face lights up, he smiles, and then he crawls very quickly (now he is waddling quickly) through the long hallway to greet and hug Linda. Christopher clearly enjoys playing with Linda, listening to music, going to music class, the playground, or to the library with her, and playing with blocks or other toys. It is also obvious how much joy Linda feels in doing these things with our son when she tells us about some highlights of the day in the evening. Linda is very reliable and in addition to her warm and loving personality, she always makes sure that Christopher is safe, healthy, well-fed and in a clean and secure environment. Linda is a US-citizen and a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese and with fluent English. She is highly educated and holds an engineering degree from a Chinese university. She is careful, responsible and radiates positive energy. Linda is also very patient and giving. When Christopher was learning to walk, Linda walked behind him, holding his hands above his head and make sure he did not fall while he was tottering up and down the hallway for long periods of time. On two afternoons of the week, Linda has also taken care of our older son Alexander who already goes to kindergarten and who has a lot of fun playing hide and seek and chess with her. We hope that Christopher and Alexander will be able maintain some contact with Linda in the future and if you are the ones hiring her, you can consider yourself very lucky. We recommend her highly and without any reservations. She is a wonderful nanny who will love your child and keep your child safe. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at sa610@columbia.edu

Seeking to help nanny find additional hours

A couple months ago, I posted about our wonderful and amazing nanny, Sonam, being available part-time on MWF. The circumstances for the family that initially hired her have changed and she is available to start working immediately. We would love to help her find another family to help round out her schedule We truly believe our son has thrived as much as he has because of Sonam. She took Fern Drilling’s CPR class when she started with us and has always done research for advice when trying to troubleshoot things with our son. She has helped us implement BLW and the No-Cry Sleep Solution philosophies. Sonam is extremely bright (has a computer science college degree from her home country of Bhutan). Our son and Sonam have SO much fun with one another - he laughs with her a way that he never laughs with us...she is truly the "cool" nanny and we're his parents who he likes to play with :) Please e-mail me at mwrfish at gmail dot com if you would like more information

My daughter was about 5.5 months when we started with the share, she is very shy and do not like new people, but she was open to Norzom immediately, so having her has really put my mind at ease, especially since it was my first time leaving my daughter in someone else's care; my daughter is 22 months now and loves her days with Norzom! Norzom always has activities planned for the children, and she is part of a very nice contingency of Tibetan nannies in the area so there are a lot of opportunities to socialize with other little ones from the neighborhood! She is great with all ages and has many years of experience caring for multiple children from newborns up through school age. Share Info: We are 2 lovely families looking for 3rd family to share Norzom, (my daughter is almost 23 months, and second family's little one is 2+)-- our original host family's child started school, so we would like to find a new host family to take over, but we are open to other arrangements.

seeking family - already have nanny (UES)

My name is Freya, I am originally from the UK but have been living in New York for more than 2 years- my contact information is freyaseath @ gmail.com. My husband and I have an 11 month old boy and we already have a wonderful nanny who has been with us for 7 months. We are looking for a family who would like a nanny share arrangement hosted at our apartment for a couple of days a week, or more days if preferred or needed- we are very flexible. Our apartment is located on UES at 86th st between Madison and 5th Aves and has a light, large designated playroom. We have a small 3 year old rescue dog called Tupa who lives with us- he has a lot of energy but is very loving. He is kept out of the baby playroom. We live 3 minutes walk from Central Park and currently our nanny takes our baby boy Joaquim for a walk at least once a day and to play on the swings. We have a double stroller that can be used for taking two babies out. Our apartment has an elevator and 24 hour door men. Our baby has no allergies and is very close to walking- a scary thought! We have no dietary restrictions in our household, and Joaquim is willing to eat any food on offer most the time :) We are looking to start a nanny share asap as our previous nanny share arrangement has just ended. Ideally we would love to share with a baby that is a similar age to Joaquim so they can grow and learn together, Our nanny has been trained in CPR and has up to date vaccinations, she is also completely lovely and feels part of our family :) We found out about shareournanny.com through our pediatrician!

seeking family - have nanny (Crown Heights)

Alethea Adsitt wrote: My 3 yo daughter is in school 2 days a week (Mon/Thur) and we have space in our share for another family to join on those days from 8am - 6:00pm with the other child in the share, in our elevator building in Crown Heights, right across from the shuttle train (Park Place) and steps away from Franklin Ave. The other family have an adorable and easy-going 1 year old that your child would be with. In the very near future, I will enroll my daughter for a 3rd day in preschool, so would ideally be looking for someone who needs 20-30 hours of care split over 2 or 3 days. In the Fall of 2017, or maybe the summer of 2017, your child could go to full-time. In the fall of 2017 my daughter will hopefully be in UPK, and we will only need afternoon care a couple days/week. In short, this is an excellent time to get your little one (she prefers babies to start off with and grow with them over time) in with the one caregiver you will ever need until your child starts school. I have very high expectations, and she meets virtually all of them. Blanca is the most incredible caregiver I have ever seen. I hear things all the time from fellow parents who see her in the community, reports back are nothing but spectacular, and people saying how much they are impressed by her gift in caring for children. She is never on the phone, she strikes a nice balance between going with the flow of the children's desires, and getting them out of the house to classes, into nature, and to museums. She speaks only Spanish with the kids, so you will have a bilingual kid out of it, which is priceless! Especially given the excellent dual language programs in NYC. She has a very calm and yet enthusiastic energy, she cleans up while the kids sleep and somehow manages to help you feel like you're keeping your life in better shape than before you met her. She is a gem. Blanca speaks Spanish, understands a good bit of English, and texts. When I started with her 3 years ago I didn't speak a lick of Spanish, but have learned to speak, and usually communicate harder things through text translations, except when I'm in front of her and she seems to understand gestures well and derive the meaning of what you're trying to say. Her rate is $10/hour, she gets bank holidays off and 2 weeks paid vacation/year/paid metro card, which would be a small contribution from your family since your child would not be full-time. If you are interested, please let me know. I am handling the initial conversations with families and then will act as translator/liaison between your family and Blanca initially. This share opportunity will begin in 2 weeks. If you think you know a good candidate, please pass it along! Blanca has numerous families who can vouch for her as well, so references is not a problem.
