I am reporting a nanny from the UES Kidville caring for a blonde 18-24 month boy named Alexander. They had a horrible dynamic from the start; he kept hitting her and screaming for nothing and she never calmed him down or spoke gently to him. Instead, she threatened him repeatedly, telling him she would put him in time-out and confiscating his playdough etc, which only made him scream more and become more aggressive. He screamed on and off for basically the entire class and then the nanny, two minutes before end of class - and most likely to deflect any blame from herself - announced that his tantrums were probably the result of his ear infection that hadn’t been treated yet.
There was a pregnant mom in the class who was not happy to be sitting next to a sick child and, when she moved seats, the nanny even mocked her publicly to anyone who would listen.
Aside from the fact that this little boy was sick and should have been kept home, this nanny handled the situation so terribly and only aggravated this poor little boy’s upset and frustration.
This nanny had no business being anywhere near kids.
