After over 4 years, it is now sadly time to find our wonderful babysitter Ivy a new job. Ivy has been with us since our daughter was 6 weeks old, and she's a trusted and much beloved member of the family.
Ivy is completely reliable, never calling in sick (well, twice in 4 years), never late, always helpful and accommodating to our changing schedule. She and our daughter are very close, Ivy is truly loving, exceptionally kind and giving. I respect and trust her values and judgment. She’s been a fabulous partner in helping us raise our fabulous kid. Oh and she’s very smart.
Ivy is energetic and playful, at the ready to play, run, swing, jump, sit on the floor and tell or read stories (she’s got great stories). She's always taking our daughter on outings to the zoo, library, Natural History Museum, Children's Art Museum, Coney Island, etc, and often arranges play dates with other lovely kids.
I work from home and Ivy is respectful of my space. She's warm but not overly chatty, and can sense when I'm super busy. She is in her mid-40s, lives in Brooklyn, and is a native English speaker with terrific grammar (better than I…or is it better than me?)
Now that our daughter will be in school fulltime, we are trying to help Ivy find a wonderful new family to work for. Our ideal timeframe would be September but if Ivy found the right situation, she would have out blessing to start anytime.
If you want to know more about Ivy, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. She has other references as well and she is very experienced with newborns as well.
