Last updated 

As we in New York continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, offices and businesses are increasingly reopening. For some, work from home might be continuing for the foreseeable future. With this new phase of reopening, New Yorkers are exploring childcare options - including nannies. Please consider referring IRC-trained childcare providers to friends or family in need of support. These amazing group of women are eager to use their professional and personal knowledge to help shape and promote the continued growth, education, and care of your child!
