Our family is looking for a native of France, (French speaking) person who is energetic, loving, supportive, organized and upbeat to help with caring for our 3.5-year-old son and 16-month-old son and occasionally our 8-year-old daughter  (who is in school until 5:30 most days) . We would like someone to speak only French to our children with a native French accent. Responsibilities would include drop off/pick up our son to/from preschool, play with and read to our children, organize play dates and trips to the park and zoo/museum. In addition, we would need meal preparation 2 nights a week, light housekeeping, errands, occasional homework help, violin practice and laundry for the kids. We are looking for someone to start with us very soon as our nanny who has been with us for the the last four years is returning to France. Nonsmokers only and must be able to provide two local references.

Thanks very much!

  • Hi JoAn,

    Are you still looking for a French-speaking nanny for your children? I'm a Brooklyn-based writer originally from Paris with tons of baby-sitting experience taking care of children from age 1 to 13.

    I can send you references via email.



    • Hi Alexia-

      I haven't checked this site in a while.  We are still looking for a full time nanny,  

      If you are still available, perhaps we could chat more about the position?

      My cell is 646-221-2145

      Thank you,
