Good Nanny Sighting:
Physical description of caregiver: White girl, dark hair and light eyes, no audible accent, pretty, maybe 25 years old
Physical description of involved child/children: girl around 4 years old wearing a brown jacket with multi colored flowers on it, kind of a retro design (maybe named Olive?), and a dark haired boy about 2 who was wearing an orange puffy jacket (maybe named Jasper?)
Address or venue of observed incident: Madison Square Park playground
Date and time of incident: Sunday, March 9, about 4:30 pm
Detailed description of what you witnessed: No specific incident, I just watched the nanny interacting with the children in a very nice way. I chatted with her briefly (she told me she’s the nanny, not the mom), and she said there’s a one year old little sister also. At one point the little boy was playing with my 16 month old, and the nanny watched from a short distance away and made sure the boy (bigger than mine) was playing nicely - which he was. And shortly after that the 4 year old girl came up and started leaning/resting on the nanny, who asked her if she was tired and rubbed her hair nicely. Like I said, nothing specific, but I have a nanny who I love and I see lots of nannies both good and bad, and I got a good vibe from how this one acted with the kids. Just thought the parents would want to know.
