NY Kids Club in NYC

Received Monday, December 18, 2006
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 2:30 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.

so in other words, if you had a bad night with your dd on Friday night; look to the nanny shrew you employ as to enlighten you as to what is going on with your child.

This is sad. She obviously dislikes her job and a kid could sense that.

I dislike my job too. The difference is I work in a medical office with affluent women. If I treated them with a sour puss and crappy disposition, I would be out on my can.

You should get in touch with the parents. Ask the staff to give them your number or e-mail and ask them to contact you.
We all have tough days, and sometimes charges go through difficult stages, but if a nanny considers her charge a "brat", she should not be in that job!
