Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn$18/hr | 1 kid
We love our nanny, Shelly, and you will, too!!! We are an artist and a writer with a happy, outgoing 2.5-yr-old daughter who loves playing with kids of all ages. She will be going to the Smith St. Maternelle in September from 9-2:30 five days a week, and we are looking for a nanny share from 2:30-6:30 or 7:00. Shelly is either looking for someone who needs mornings/early afternoons (8:00-1:30ish, depending on how far you live from Henry St. and 1st Pl.), or she can care for your child all day and you can get a discount on the last 4 hours of the day, plus school holidays and vacations.
Shelly has been working for us since our daughter was 5 months old and we couldn't be happier -- she is so warm and loving and smart and fun (our daughter will often tell us that Shelly is her best friend)! Also always on time, good communication, all that stuff. She has a great network of other nannies in the neighborhood and there are always activities, trips, parties, crafts, etc.
A couple of Shelly's nanny friends are caring for baby siblings as well as toddlers, so if you have a baby, this might be ideal.
