Meet Wanda

I am available in Downtown Jersey City for the summer only! I have the pleasure of working for a wonderful family which I've become a part of. They live in the Hamilton Park area where I grew up and still live. When I have time, I enjoy cardio and swimming! I also have date night clients in the Grove Street, Newport and Essex Street area. I love children, always have and always will. I simply adore them. I love reading and singing to them, teaching them their ABC's, how to count, read and write, but most importantly, how to treat people with kindness and love and to... more
I am available in Downtown Jersey City for the summer only! I have the pleasure of working for a wonderful family which I've become a part of. They live in the Hamilton Park area where I grew up and still live. When I have time, I enjoy cardio and swimming! I also have date night clients in the Grove Street, Newport and Essex Street area. I love children, always have and always will. I simply adore them. I love reading and singing to them, teaching them their ABC's, how to count, read and write, but most importantly, how to treat people with kindness and love and to always listen to what mommy/daddy tells them to do. I've always enjoyed taking care of children. I'm truly passionate about caring for and loving children. I've acquired a minimum of 25 years of experience with children. Caring for someone's child is a very personal matter and I take that responsibility very seriously. This isn't just about a reasonable rate of pay for me: It's all about the children and finding a family where we all connect. My job is to carry out the parent's wishes on how they want their children raised and to help make their child's up-bringing a positive experience, one they will cherish forever, which would make the entire family a happy household to be a part of. As you can tell by now, I truly love children, especially babies, their scent, the way they coo, all of it. They really do bring me such joy. I've spent many years of my life working as a Personal Assistant for "high maintenance" people, Ambassadors, CEO's, COO's and others like them. In recent years I've realized this is what I was meant to do. I'm a competent, organized, loving and kind person. The kind of person who will always be there for the children. I'm CPR, First Aid and AED Trained as well as being well versed in teaching Baby Sign Language, part of the "Baby Signing Time series which helps parents to better understand when a child is hungry or thirsty for water, milk or juice. I can teach signs for words like please, thank you, I'm sorry and a host of other signs. I have a wealth of knowledge, care and kindness to share with a family. I don't drive but public transportation is accessible and with proper planning, path trains, light rail and buses take me where I need to be. Thank You!

Detgen G. says:
I could not be happier with Wanda! She started babysitting my daughter in November 2013 and is now my full time nanny. My 6 month old loves Wanda and has a huge smile every time she sees her. Wanda is punctual and professional, yet also loving and thoughtful. She is never late, keeps detailed notes of her time with my daughter, and is very good with babies. I absolutely recommend her.

I am so happy to have met this family! I absolutely love and adore children and this beautiful little angel makes my day! She always greets me with a smile... I love it when I meet progressive, thoughtful, smart and attentive parents.

It makes my job that much easier, working in tandem to do what's best for baby! I love this baby girl and she loves me. I am truly blessed to be doing what I love for a living...

Lihle M. says:
The best word I could us to describe Wanda is amazing. She is so great with our son, it feels like she's been with us since he was a newborn. In one day she had him on a sleeping schedule where I had been struggling to put him on one. It was also an easy schedule that I'm able to maintain when she is not around. She is punctual and reliable. She also genuinely cares about our son as though he were her own family.... More

Wanda P. responds:
Leesh, thank you so much for your kind words about me, as I feel the same way about your family... I truly appreciate it. From the moment I met the family and laid eyes on their son my heart was his. I love all children but babysitting for them is truly a joy. The baby is happy, smart, funny and a joy to be around and that's because he has 2 wonderful people for parents. I couldn't love their son any more than... More

We feel so lucky to have found Wanda! She is a top-notch babysitter and a great lady. My kids just love her and I really feel safe leaving them in her extremely competent hands! She is very easy to communicate with and gives you a lot of info on the activities she has done with the kids. In addition to being a loving sitter, she is also a fantastic cook who has some great tricks to get kids (and grownups)... More

Maya H. says:
This is a letter of recommendation for Wanda P. aka "Nanny Buffee". We initially planned to have a nanny for six months, then transition our daughter to daycare, but Buffee was so phenomenal with our family and our household that we extended our agreement to a full year. I found Buffee here with a very good ad which represented her as someone who loved children, was energetic, responsible and flexible. She turned... More

Thank you all for the opportunity and pleasure it became to join the most loving, warm, happy, wonderful and progressive family I've ever had the pleasure of meeting! I I've never had a job where I looked forward to going to work every... single... day! From the moment I arrived in the morning I was greeted by the dog barking, then I'd show her a daily dose of hugs and love, Mena who just wanted her furry black... More
