My past childcare experience was amazing. I've learned so much working with children & how to take care of them, make them happy & teach them different education things. I couldn't ask for a better job.

I've always had passion for working with children because although I help them progress, I do as well. I've learned through the years in child care that each child is different and has unique needs. Being diverse and adaptive is key to making daily advances. Through my work with various families, I have learned that being devoted is very vital and my tireless efforts with the people I've worked for will become evident to anyone I work with. I always felt that working with children has always been rewarding in and of itself. I have been a Nanny (live-in and otherwise) for more than 10 years. I have vast experience with children from newborns to 12 years of age. I have experience with twins, triplets, sick children (cancer), and children with special needs (learning and social disabilities). Prior to my past 10 years of being a Nanny, I worked at a children's nursery caring for groups of children. I am one of the lucky ones, who truly loves her job. I love working with children and the challenges it presents. Each new family is a new opportunity that I welcome and to which I look forward. I am loyal and do not hop from job to job. In my experience, when I work with a family the relationship lasts years, and I grow with the family as it expands, until they no longer require a Nanny. I have been with my current family for almost 4 years. I work as a live-in Nanny for 3 girls, now ages 5-8. The family is getting to the point where a Nanny is no longer required. This family has presented various challenges. The youngest girl has a rare form of childhood cancer, and about a year ago after an accident, her mother became a paraplegic. Being able to help this family has brought me much so joy and has greatly expanded my abilities as a Nanny. Prior to my current job, I was a live-in for a family with 4 children for 4 years. When I began working with family, they had 1 child, and as it expanded I welcomed the opportunity to grow with the family until my services were no longer needed. A little about me: I was born and raised in Israel, and resided there until I was 19. Thereafter, I moved to America to make it my home and have been here ever since. I live and work legally in the United States. I am extremely outgoing and have a wonderful outlook on life. I thirst for new experiences and live each day with an open mind and an open heart. I look forward to new beginning a new chapter in my life. Please feel free to contact me.

I have been babysitting neighbors and family friends since I was 11 years old in Flagstaff, Arizona. I became a regular caretaker for many of these families throughout my years before moving away for college and started an after-school music tutoring program when in high school. I would also spend my summers babysitting my 4 younger cousins in Connecticut for a few weeks at a time. Once in college, I continued to take both long-term nanny and babysitting positions and worked in an after-school theater and dance mentorship program. We would tutor elementary school students on their assigned schoolwork while developing plays or dance routines focused on an educational topic over each semester. I worked for various families over my entire college career other than my time studying abroad, while taking short-term referral-based jobs when needed. Work in the after-school program made me as accustomed to working with late elementary/middle-school aged children and I am working with children in their first year. In addition to tutoring and helping families in the past, I regularly babysat 2 little girls (7 and 9 years old now) for one family, and a little boy (13 now) of another in my home. After moving to Manhattan in 2008 for college, I found 3 families in New York I then helped regularly: for a little boy who was 6 months old when I started watching him, and is now 6, for a 6 and 8 year old boy who are now 9 and 11, and another 3 year old boy for a few years. I also took different jobs for their friends and through babysitting agencies before studying abroad and have continued to help when needed in the past couple years.

Dear family, I am 25 years old. I've lived almost 3 years in the USA as an Au Pair/Nanny. I love children, and I've been working with children since a very young age. From 2009 to 2011 I took care of 2 beautiful children. They were a 2 years old boy and a 3 years old girl when I started, and 5 and 6 when I moved to Brazil last July. We still have a close relationship and keep in touch as much as we can. I used to do everything and anything for them and with them. I would spend all day long with them (from around 6AM to 5PM - when their parents arrived from work) playing, feeding, doing projects/crafts, learning time (letters, numbers, writing), given baths, taking to play dates, library, school, and many others. I was like part of the family, and although they gave me all the space in the world to discover that new culture and new place, we would spend a lot of time together as a family. Later on in the end of 2011 I started working for a family in Lloyd Harbor/Cold Spring Harbor, NY where I took care of a 4 years and 12 years old girls. Their mother is a stay at home mom, so we would do everything together - Me, mom, and kids. My duties with the kids included: getting them ready for school, driving them everyday, taking to external activities, taking to doctor, giving medicine, baths, some nights putting to bed. As well as taking care of the kids I assisted the parents in what they would need, for instance: Errands (bank, pharmacy, supermarket, cleaners, cars revisions), taking care of the dogs (taking to the vet, making sure they are fed and healthy). I also keep in touch with them as much as we can, and I'm so grateful for the great opportunity and time I've had with them. Before I moved to the US, I had been a ballet dance teacher for over 4 years for girls from 2 to 12 years of age. In addition, I worked in an orphanage assisting in the cafeteria. I used to assist boys and girls from 4 to 11 years old. What a great time I had there! I'm pretty confortable with all ages. My latest job was as an English Teacher in Brazil, where I mostly thought adults executives. I alsoI had a private student who is 2 and a half years old. I also had groups of kids and teenagers. I'm fluent in English and Portuguese. I will do the best of me to get to know your family, and be a loving influence on your children. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Thali

I have been working as a Nanny for almost 10 years, I was a LIVE-IN Nanny for 6 years, which was a great experience for me because I felt like I had a family in the states even though my family is far away in Europe. The past 4 years Ive had live-out positions in NYC. I love what I do and I take it very seriously and consider it a huge responsibility which I don't take lightly. After all, a Nanny spends the most time with a child throughout the week. To me it's more than just "being there," so the child is fed and watched so that he/she doesn't hurt him/herself. I have mostly cared for infants and toddlers, also have experience with school age children, worked with boy-girl twins for 2 years, which was a great experience for me and not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be, double the fun. :) I would absolutely love to start a new position with an infant/young toddler just to be there as early in their lives as possible. It's such a joy taking care of them in the early stages of their lives when everything is a new discovery and so exciting, from the first tooth coming out, to the first smile, first word and all the other wonderful discoveries. I enjoy taking the children to play dates, museums, parks and different activities, being creative, painting, etc, depending on age of course, just love to have fun and stay busy! When caring for an infant, I love to talk to them, read to them, sing to them, take them for long walks while talking to them and telling them where we are going and describing the scenery, most people underestimate babies, they are little people, they listen and take in everything. Even if you don't realize it, it's truly amazing, you just really have to care and have the patience and most importantly ENJOY taking care of them and spending the day with them.

I am a single mother with 2 daughters (3 and 5 years old) and a wonderful nanny who has been with us for 2 years. My daughters will be in school full-time starting this Fall 2018 and we are looking for a great family to arrange a nanny-share with. Our nanny will be available Tuesdays - Fridays from 8:30am - 2:30pm. Starting at 2:30pm, my nanny will be picking up my daughters from school. Ideally, we are looking for a family who needs one-on-one care from 8:30am - 2:30pm and then is willing to have our nanny care for all children from 2:30pm until the evening. My nanny stays with us until about 7:30pm in the evening Tuesday - Friday. We are not in need of childcare on Mondays except for when my children do not have school. Below is the general schedule that we expect to start this Fall 2018:
Monday - Nanny available for one-on-one care from 8:30am - 1pm
Tuesday through Friday - Nanny available for one-on-one care from 8:30am - 2:30pm. From 2:30-7:30pm, nanny available to care for all children from both families.
Our family has tons of friends in our neighborhood and in our building. We value social interactions, outdoor play, kindness, cleanliness and fun. We hope to find a great family!

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.

With nanny since date3 years with nanny

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.

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.
