Dear Family,

I have been taking care of children since I was a child. I am the eldest of two girls and come from a large, very close, family. On one side I am the eldest girl of 20 cousins and have always been responsible for caring for those younger than me.

I have years of childcare experience. When I was 12 I started babysitting and I have continued babysitting, part-time and full-time nanny work since then. I have also worked for four years in an infant nursery at Grace Church as the head of the nursery; during this time I also worked the 2-3 year old nursery.

I taught children ages pre-k through high school English in Paraguay during a volunteer gap year there. While there I also started an after-school program for boys and girls to provide space for children who did not have supervision.

I have worked with youth instruction in language, dance, art and martial arts. I have worked as a lifeguard and am trained in first aid and CPR. I also have experience caring for special needs children.

What all of this adds up to is: I love children. I love working with them and investing in the future of this world.

I recently completed my undergraduate studies at UNC Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Anthropology and Global Studies. I speak multiple languages including Spanish, Arabic, Hindi and French and have traveled extensively (these are experiences I would love to share with the children). After graduation I continued my work as an independent contractor--specializing in branding, social media and marketing--for non-profits. I have spent the past six months as a live-in nanny in the UWS for three children ages: 1.5, 4.5 and 7.5. I love dance, art and absolutely anything and everything outdoors. Right now I am focused on dance and art. I want to continue this track eventually and get my PHD at NYU in the Anthropology of Dance.

I also dance... a lot! I am a competitive ballroom and salsa dancer. NYC is a great place for dance. I love yoga, rock climbing, biking and meditating. I try to keep my lifestyle as natural and grounded as possible. I love to dance, I know I've already mentioned this but it's important: I'll dance anywhere and everywhere!

I enjoy being a nanny because it is a job that inspires; children have way of pulling the best out of people. I want a job that I am passionate about, and child care fits that criteria.

I am looking for a family that is supportive of the arts and creativity and desires to instill those values in their children. I would love to work with the children on language skills, or teach art, dance...whatever they are interested in learning!

I love planning adventures with the children I care for and these would take them outdoors for fresh air, space for creativity and exploration. I’m an avid camper and backpacker; I know the city doesn’t really have opportunity for that but similar skills can still be learned in an urban environment.

I like to work hard and hate being bored. I am laid-back and easy-going person. I really like to plan things (because adventures are fun!) and be organized (because it leaves more time for the fun stuff!). If you want to find out more about me feel free to ask me anything, I'm an open book! I also have references available upon request.

I hope to find a family that I can connect with so that we will be able to enrich each other's lives. I hope that could be you.

With Much Love,

I am a caring and committed nanny with over 10 years of direct experience in childcare. My experience includes short and long term nanny and babysitting positions, as well as working at a private school that services children ages 2 years old through fifth grade. I believe children learn the most through positive role models and lots of play. It is important that the children I care for are exploring the world as much as possible. I nurture this belief by planning trips to museums, parks, or local attractions.

Currently I am a nanny, working in a nanny share, in Washington D.C. I will be relocating to a New York City suburb at the end of this month. I am in search of a full time nanny position and I hope to share my expertise in childcare with a family in New Jersey or New York!

Here's a little information about my previous and current nanny positions:

- Due to the nature of nanny shares, my nannying career has been centered around caring for multiple children who are similar in age. As a result, I am well trained in the areas of childcare time management, developmental milestones, caring for multiples, and creating a fun and safe environment.

- My nannying career began in April of 2015. At the time, both babies I cared for were around 8 weeks old. I continued to care for these children until April of 2017, when they both entered preschool.

- I immediately entered into a new nanny share where the babies were 4 months old and 8 months old. Sadly, one of the families relocated in October of 2017. Fortunately for our nanny share, we gained a sweet, 3 month old baby. At present time, the babies I care for are 5 months old and 12 months old.

- I’ve cared for children in each nanny share for 50+ hours each week. In those 50 hours we are outside a lot! I believe that it is beneficial for children to be out in the world as much as possible. In the various nanny shares, you could typically find us on a "construction" scavenger hunt (looking for any evidence of construction) around the city, swinging at parks, participating in story-time at the local libraries, or checking out the lions at the national zoo! I’ve also arranged trips to museums, joining local enrichment programs, and play dates.

- I’ve taught the children I’ve cared for sign language to help communicate their needs.

- From very early on in each nanny share, I’ve successfully instilled positive habits into the children, most notably sleeping habits, eating habits, and positive social skills.

While my recent positions have been centered around infants, I have experience with all age groups! I would love to speak with you about what you are looking for in a nanny and if I might be a great fit for your family.

Hello, my name is Amanda Espinal. I am twenty-three years old, born and raised in Manhattan. I love reading and writing along with spending time with my family.

I've been around children my entire life. My first experience with a child was when I was twelve and my oldest sister gave birth to my beautiful baby niece. I babysat my niece a great deal of the time throughout the years.

My first formal experience with working with children was around high school, volunteering at a nearby elementary school. I helped children with homework as well as their emotional needs.

After finishing my first year of college, I spent my time working at a summer camp, ESF Camps. I was given the position of a camp counselor and put in charge of sixteen kindergarteners. For a month and a half, I was responsible for getting them to their activities on time, tending to their physical and emotional needs, and fostering a safe environment for them. It was a challenging time as it was the first time I was given sole supervision but the experience proved to be most fulfilling. This was the summer I learned how to engage with children with different personalities and come up with solutions that are suited to their individual needs.

I've been working with SASF (Sports and Arts Foundation) for about three and a half years now and it's where I've gained the most experience with children. The first two years with SASF, I was a counselor for middle schoolers. Like my role as a camp counselor with ESF, I was in charge of moving my group from one activity to another, keeping them engaged in every class while making sure of their safety. My current role at SASF as a Leadership Specialist was given to me at the start of my third year at SASF. As a Leadership Specialist, I teach my elementary school children several things. I teach them what is a leader, what makes a leader, and how to be an effective leader. In order to do this, I have to teach them how to talk to their peers, how to show respect their peers, how to express their emotions in healthy ways, and much more. My goal with this is while they learn how to be leaders in their own right, they will also learn how to be better people.

The reason why I became a caregiver and continue to do what I do is because I love playing a part in my students’ social and emotional development, and watching them grow into better versions of themselves.

I’m First Aid and CPR Certified :)

I am currently employed as a Teacher at the West Side YMCA, certified in both CPR and First Aid. As a teacher at the YMCA Infant/Toddler Program, I am responsible for the day to day activities and care for children between the ages of 6 months to 2 years of age. I plan and implement age appropriate, educational activities to uphold our creed of learning through play. Prior to working at the YMCA, I was employed as a Head Teacher at a daycare facility, working in the Toddler classroom. I supervised, educated and played with a group of toddlers between the ages of 18 months to 26 months. As an opener in my facility, I also got to work with the 2’s, 3’s, 4’s as well as the infants and walkers. My range of experience extended from our youngest group of 6 week old babies and the careful care at such a tender age, to our older, preschool aged kids. Prior to working at the daycare facility, I also worked as an Assistant Teacher for a fourth grade classroom. I was in charge of creating daily lesson plans as part of the class’ vocabulary curriculum. Together with the teacher, we ensured that each child was progressing and developing to his/her own best ability. Prior to working with fourth graders, I also tutored and counseled middle school children from 5th-8th grade. I assisted with difficult subjects and assignments and helped with homework and other tasks. Working with children is a true passion for me. I strive to better each child academically, mentally and emotionally. To see the growth and progress of each child is the greatest gift I have experienced in my career, and I aim to continue to challenge myself and my children to reach new heights.

I believe I would be a great babysitter for your child. I have the experience of working with an array of children and taking on many different levels of responsibility. I can be entertaining and fun-spirited, and pretty much always have to be in order to keep the attention and interest of the age group that I teach. I sing, I act silly, I can make children laugh, and all the while I truly enjoy myself as I bring happiness to the kids around me.

Our awesome, loving, attentive nanny Carla currently cares for our (Almost) 2 year old son along with another little girl (also 2). The share has worked out so well and the kids adore each other but the other family is moving to Brooklyn for a bigger space and we are searching for a new family for our share.
Carla takes the kids to classes and to the park. She prepares meals and snacks for them and teaches them everything (letters, numbers, how to share;).
She gets right down in the kids level, playing with them, coloring, reading, singing, she is very engaged. The kids love her and so do we!
Currently the share is at our apartment on 11th street and 4th ave. The closer you live the easier it will be.
We would like someone to start August but the start date is flexible.
Please contact me if you’re interested at

What are some common responsibilities for nannies in New York, NY?

As a parent, it’s natural for you to ask your nanny for a little extra help around the house. However, the boundaries for a nannies duties vary from person to person. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met. This includes things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active, that they have a healthy diet and a sanitary home. When tasks go beyond child care, for example scrubbing kitchen counters, folding laundry, gathering groceries, or teaching a language, you will likely need to provide additional compensation.

How can I ensure I have a great relationship with my nanny?

To start, it’s important you set expectations and are aligned on compensation from day one. This includes outlining vacation days, a protocol for sick days, and everything else you would want your own employer to cover. From here, spend time getting to know them. Take your nanny out one of New York’s great restaurants, learn about their childhood, and discuss your parenting philosophy. Finally, be sure to resolve conflicts as they arise. Open communication is crucial to ensuring a healthy long-term relationship.

Questions to ask prospective New York Nannies:
  • Have you been a nanny previously? How long did your employment last?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR?
  • How would you handle a situation where our child began choking?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement?
  • Do you plan to work for our family over multiple years?
  • Do you have a driver's license in New York?
  • Do you own a car? Do you have work experience in New York?
  • How flexible are you on weekends and evenings?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you comfortable being paid by direct deposit?
  • Are you able to help with food preparation?
  • What could you cook for a child aged 2-5? Do you know how to make baby food?
  • Are you comfortable facilitating play dates?
  • Have you ever potty trained a child before?
  • Have you worked with newborns? Do you know how to change a diaper and prepare formula?
