Meet Mary

  • Comfortable with pets

As NYC schools are closed through April 20 and if parents are asked to work from home, I am available for 2-3 hour time periods to supervise children while parents work in their home offices or for full days. I currently have morning availability from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday to assist a new mum who may need a few hours to run errands, etc. I am regularly available on Saturdays and Sundays (from 10:00 a.m. with a 3 hour minimum) and on week-end evenings.  I have week evenings availability from 6:30 p.m until late and have the flexibility to stay over. I am happy to do hotel/apartment sitting for families who are travelling from across the country or from overseas and can provide out-of-town references. ---------------------------------------- I have 20 years experience as an as-needed week-day/school pick-up/evening/week-end hours Manhattan sitter with children ranging in age from tiny Read more babies to 13 years of age and have a good working relationship with children of all ages.  I am currently trying to find 2-3 new families with random needs to replace families who no longer need me as their children are now 13 years old and no longer require sitters. I accept regular, last minute or once-off evening sitter jobs as well as advance sitting and hotel sitting and am also willing to travel.  I am flexible with my time once I accept a booking, can work late into the night, can stay over if needed and am comfortable with up to 4 children.   3-4 Manhattan references are available on request. Regards, Tina Houlihan. Please Note:  Full Name - Mary Agnes Martina Houlihan but known as Tina.

Mary (or Tina) has worked with us for a year since my son was a newborn. We could not have asked for a better sitter. She is flexible, reliable, responsible, sweet, caring, and a blessing in our lives. We are moving to CT so we will no longer be able to use Tina moving forward past November. She has availability in the mornings. We used her part time during the day and some evenings when we went out. We will miss her dearly and know that she will be a wonderful addition to a new family.
