My sister just left a really terrible situation and is moving to NYC tomorrow to find a live-in nanny position. Here’s where you guys come in. While there are tons of great sites to find jobs on, there’s just nothing like word of mouth when you’re looking for a good family to work with or when a family is looking for a good nanny. So, if anyone knows anyone in NYC who is looking for a live-in, please message me and I can pass on info to my sister (whose name is Kat) or pass on her info to you.
Kat is young and active and VERY experienced. She was an assistant at a home daycare for many years. She was a part time nanny for two families, one with a difficult 4 year old and a younger boy, and one family with twins for whom she worked for about a year and a half. She was a full time live-in for a toddler boy in Washington until the breadwinner of the family lost his job and they could no longer afford to keep her on. She has excellent references, works best with very young kids (she LOVES babies and toddlers), and would be a happy addition to any family. AND SHE CAN COOK. I mean really well. She could make soup and it would be the best soup you’ve ever had. She is the only person I’ve ever seen get every kid she comes in contact with to eat a healthy meal and like it.
So, please, if you hear of any openings in NYC for live-ins, send them my way and I will send them on to her. Message me privately and I will happily give you her email address, phone number, and a link to her Care.com page.
The sooner she finds a position, the sooner I can have my room back. My cheap nyc bedroom is not nearly big enough for two people. So if you don’t know anyone, please signal boost!
