Spooky season is upon us. Almost half way into October the leaves are changing colors, pumpkins have faces, and children are deciding just what tiny terror they’d like to be at the end of the month. The Halloween season is a great time of year for nannies to take the children they care for out on eerie adventures. For those of us that reside in NYC, we’re lucky to have the city hosting wonderful events for all children. Listed below are a couple of great child friendly Halloween activities across different NYC neighborhoods.

 
Social Nannies

I recently met up with a friend who works at NYU Langone Medical Center. We walked around the complex and surrounding area before arriving at Robert Moses Playground. While at this playground she introduced me to a couple of nannies she befriended and the children they care after. As it turns out this clique of nannies have been gathering at this park with the children almost daily/semi daily. Robert Moses Playground as it turns out is a popular hub for nannies to bring the children they care for out to enjoy some social activity with other little ones and grab some fresh air as well. I asked if this was common in other parks as well, which was met with the response “Duh”. There are many NYC parks with their own daily nanny meet up groups. I’ve taken it upon myself to list a couple of the best parks NYC has to offer these social nanny groups.

The purpose of a uniform is to state a current occupation. You see them everywhere, highlighting individuals and the tasks they’re responsible for. However is it acceptable when working in a private residence? Well, that depends. Some homes are treated as a business and employees should be dressed as such, when others are a place of relaxation where uniforms wouldn’t really fit in. There are various pros & cons to this debate.

With countless trained chefs to choose from in the world, finding a match can be difficult. Someone who can prepare meals for the children, a romantic dinner for two or even head up efforts to create meals for a dinner party or event is not an easy task. The challenge becomes even greater when the competition to hire heats up. Although it may be difficult, there are a few essential attributes beyond their exceptional ability in the kitchen to be aware of which will increase the chances of finding a chef of your liking.
