NY Kids Club, approx 2:25 pm, Friday, 87th st location, white mid 20s sitter, reddish brown curly hair pulled back in a pony tail, watching 4 yo blonde girl before her gym class. Sitter was being nasty and had a foul look on her face. Kid was not misbehaving, sitter was just in a bad mood. After the gym teacher came out to pick up 2:30 class, she walks out and actually said out loud :“One whole hour of freedom from watching the brat”. I was shocked and one of the nannies waiting near me (our kids are in another class) heard it too and said she was going to try to follow up with the staff as to who the parents were. No physical abuse, but the girl was quiet and subdued, even when the other kids were getting riled up for gym class so I would guess being around this ray of sunshine sitter sucks for this little girl.
Bad nanny question - I went to the park the other day, there was a little girl there the same age as my daughter, this little girl was being cared for by a nanny. The nanny was sleeping most of the time or talking to other nannies. I ended up watching this kid for almost three hours - I even fed her lunch! Ar one point I wanted to ask the nanny if it was ok if I gave her food and I couldn’t find her - I think she left!! I know the parents, but not well. Should I mind my own business or speak up?
Just saw a very bad nanny at tjmaxx in Chelsea. She was letting your poor ds cry for almost 15 mins as I and other people looked on horrified. I finally stepped up and said something. She screamed at me and told me to shut up when I asked the boy if he was okay. After I confronted her other people (moms) started chiming in about her bad behavior. Your ds was in a green city mini with a brown shearling coat. Your nanny, black jacket with tan baseball cap. The kicker is as she was leaving the store she told me I was a jackass. First time I have ever done anything like this. Next time should I just mind my own business? Smh.
Bad nanny sighting at the Mariner’s Gate playground. Little boy about 2 ½ completely ignored by nanny talking on a cell phone. The boy was throwing sand at other kids, hitting, scratching, grabbing toys. Nanny walked over twice (holding an infant) to just say “I don’t know what is wrong with you” and “You’re a bad boy."
i don’t ever read the nanny-sighting posts, but i saw something today at 96th and cpw playground. if your daughter is bailey, wore a blue wool coat and was there with her nanny, please read this…more a girl with a leopard coat, pink pants and a pony tail and baily, were standing on the jungle gym, swinging on the bars above the slide. baily was trying to go down teh slide and the girl with the leopard coat pushed her against the rails and was smashing her head against the bars. i tried to intervene b/c she was crying so hard. by the time the nanny came over, she yelled at baily for crying and told her to stop. i explained the other little girl hurt her. nanny shrugged her shoulders and said, “oh”. then, teh little girl in the leopard coat (a few minutes later) pushed my 20-month-old son down the slide. i was never able to match the nanny with the leopard-print jacket girl. if her mom is reading this, i think a little discipline is in need.
Saw nanny just now at 58th & Sutton Place smoking a cigarette while pushing child in stroller. She’s wearing a bright aqua teal northface coat, wears glasses and has dark hair pulled back tight. Just FYI if this is your child and you care.
w.99 & bway. i’m a wohm who had the day off today - i’m not trying to start a war or judge, but i want to share the same info i’d like to know about my nanny. i was at a nail place on the east side of bway btwn 99 & 100th around 3 pm. nanny was dark-skinned af am, late 20s/ early 30s, pretty, round face, a bit chubby, corkscrew curls almost to her shoulders. she was wearing black puffer coat and black stretch pants w/ brown/orange-ish & white sneakers & gold ankle bracelet. didn’t hear a name but she had a caribean accent when she spoke to manicurist. someone’s dd was 10 - 14 mos, olive skin, beautiful big brown eyes, dark brown hair. wearing orange coat & pink boots. red maclaren triumph w/ pepany shade & dark green backpack attached. transparent hot pink bag & plastic keys hanging from stroller by dd’s seat. nanny spent over an hour getting acrylic nails & waxing. had dd next to her at all times but didn’t talk to her, play w/ her at all. dd made lots of cute “ba ba ba” sounds and pointed at me when i waved at her but didn’t interact w/ or respond to nanny at all. i don’t want to suggest that nanny was harmful or dangerous but she certainly seemed negligent & entirely disinterested in baby. hope this is helpful. good luck.
In John Jay Park on East End and 77th street. Nanny named Bernadette left blonde boy 4 years old unattended in the swing area for 20 minutes(child was almost hit by swing). boy named “Odesia” difficult to understand his speech. Finally he spotted nanny Bernadette with 1 year old blonde girl on other side of park. A few moms at park reported this to policeman on site.
