Hey! I just moved to New York City about two weeks ago! I just graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design with a BFA in Furniture Design. I am currently looking to fill my schedule with full-time work. As far as experience... I grew up around all boys between my brothers and cousins. I did babysitting for my cousins in all stages of their lives, from helping my aunt in their earliest years, to hanging out with them as pre-teens, as well as doing all kinds of cleaning and picking up after them in-between. I was a lifeguard for one summer in high school. I was a YMCA Camp High Harbour counselor for two summers. While I was there, I was a counselor for the youngest girls, as well as older co-ed groups of kids. Between those two years, I lifeguarded, cleaned, led activities, put kids to bed, rock-climbed, rafted, rappelled, drove boats, jumped off cliffs (in an organized, safe environment), helped prepare meals, led bible studies, met parents, played games, swam, kayaked, made crafts, had conversations, and seriously had the time of my life. I was a student mentor my last year of high school. I was a Young Life Leader for a quarter in college. I volunteered with Special Education kids in my high school, and it was the absolute best part of my day. I would take my lunch into their classroom and eat with them. They were the most severely disabled kids in my school, and something about them brought my heart so much joy. I learned more from them my last two years of high school than I probably did in the classroom. They were wonderful. Still to this day, being around anyone of any age with a disability, no matter how mild or severe, is one of my favorite things to do and be a part of. I am comfortable with dogs, as I have grown up with dogs throughout my updringing; mostly labs and golden retrievers. I also learned French in high school, and understand the basics.

An existing family and nanny partnership looking for another family in the area to join our nanny share! The previous other family is moving away by the end of the year. We are located in Morningside Heights by Columbia University in Manhattan.

We have been in an amazing nanny share relationship for the past 2 years now, but unfortunately, the other family involved is moving away to Boston by the end of the year. We are looking for another family/young child interested in joining our nanny share as soon as possible. Someone who lives or works in the Morningside Heights neighborhood would be ideal.

We already have a great nanny. Her name is Daba, she speaks English and French, she loves to take the children to libraries, music classes, arts and crafts, playgrounds, parks, play dates, etc. She absolutely adores all children and is excellent at networking with other nannies and families in the community. She does light meal prep and cleans up after the children.

Our daughter, Mila, is about 2.5 years old. She is very smart, friendly, and gets along well with other kids of all ages.

We are more than willing to host at our apartment at least half the time, if not full time (which is what we have been doing previously).

Ideally, the new family would need full time care (roughly 9-6:30 M-F), but you may be able to work out something more part time with the nanny if needed. She does travel from far out in Queens, so anything outside of these hours would be tough for her.

If you are interested, or know anyone that might be, please reach out to us directly!

Sandra Daniels - Nanny Share Member

My daughter will be 5 months old when we want to start the nanny share just after July 4th. We have lived in Central Harlem for 6 years and are both designers.

Sandra is great! As I was referred to her by a close friend of mine who had Sandra as her nanny for her son from 3 months through 2 years. I was working with her when she hired Sandra and I remember her raving about her then as well. Sandra has been a nanny all her life and loves kids. She has twin boys and a girl who are all grown adults now. She has a background in early childhood development and continues to take classes to keep up with what's current.

Sandra requires a 40 hour week but at the moment my husband and I only need 3 days a week through the end of this year. Currently we would like to have her Tues, Weds, and Thurs so the family we are looking to share with would share Sandra Mondays and Fridays but our Monday can be flexible and swapped for any of the other three days. She's on the books and charges $17/hour. If for whatever reason the family we share her with is not able to continue then it would be the responsibility of that family to find a replacement family as it would effect her hours and income.
