[Parentsgroup-list] Incredible Nanny available during July / end of August

Hi-

We are traveling and/or have parents in town for a several consecutive weeks this summer and in the interest of making sure we don't lose our INCREDIBLE full-time nanny I am hoping to find replacement income for her during the times we are gone (rather than just eating the cost myself).  

In particular we will not require our nanny from June 24-July 21 (and potentially also the last 2 weeks in August) and would love to place her if anyone is looking during those times.  Additionally, if you are searching for help during a time that doesn't correspond exactly with those dates I can be flexible on either end and/or we might be open to the possibility of a nanny share for the entire summer depending on your specific needs.  Also, if your nanny has planned vacation (or your daycare is closing for a summer break) and you'd be interested in using our nanny for just a portion of the above dates, that's ok too.

A bit about our nanny (and myself/kids)

Us: I'm on faculty at HBS, 2 kids (boy-3.5 and girl-1.25) both very mild mannered, friendly, polite, happy and LOVE outdoor activities. 

Our nanny: literally THE BEST THING that ever happened to us (by way of childcare) 24, hard-working, lovable, and creative my children are constantly out and about visiting parks/museums etc. or at home working on various crafts or other learning projects.  She doesn't drive but takes my kids everywhere (Science Museum, Frog Pond, Aquarium, Children's Museum using public transportation on a regular basis).  She has so much energy!  Even when my kids are napping our nanny never seems to rest and is always coming up with new things she can do to make my life easier. We have had wonderful nannies in the past but this one tops them all.  Both my kids and I adore her.  

If you are potentially interested or know of someone who might be shoot me an email off list-serve aallen at hbs.edu.

Note-- unfortunately we are not willing to share our nanny beyond summer (August).

Hello, 

Our
 daycare provider, Kaniz Fatima, let me know she has part-time openings for kids 18 months and up in the small daycare she runs in her home between Huron Village, Davis square and Porter Square. She takes care of 3 to 5 kids, with a morning helper, and unfortunately 2 kids will move abroad moving  out at the end of May. 

I
 highly recommend Kaniz. We feel so lucky this list has brought her in our lives 3 months ago ! 

She has taken care of our 2-year-old daughter 
for 3 months now, since we arrived from France. She's helped her to 
adapt smoothly to her new environment and langage. 
We almost 
accepted a spot in a "big company day care" before meeting her. What convinced
 us what the smaller, more personal and warm atmosphere she provides, while 
organizing structured activities in outdoor settings. She often texts us pictures of the kids during the day, especially at first when I was going through some anxiety separation ! She also has a competitive price while providing 
healthy snacks and lunch - she can also share with parents !

Feel free to contact me if you need any further information. 
Best, Nathalie

Ps : if you need further comments, here comes what another mum wrote to describe Kaniz: 
"
 Kaniz provides for them an incredibly warm, calm, and gentle 
atmosphere. The day is consistently structured around play times, 
healthy snacks and lunch that she provides, outside time at the 
playground when weather allows, and enrichment activities like story 
times and play spaces. No matter where they are, she manages to keep the
 kids calm, happy, and playing nicely together ? even at ages when 
sharing and sitting still don't come easily. Stopping by at different 
times of day, I was consistently impressed (if not amazed!) at how in 
control she was. When the weather's nice, for example, she takes the kids to the park for lunch, and somehow always had them all sitting and eating quietly on a blanket. 
She's
 also great to parents. She'd often text pictures throughout the day, 
gave us a "report card" listing what our son did and ate all day, and 
was always even trying to feed us! (fruit, delicious smoothies, homemade
 bread) ".
