Born and raised in Montana, I've moved to the city for a change of pace. In my free time I love to read and go for walks. Pets are very dear to me so you never have to worry if you have furry friends. My favorite part of my job is a nanny is bonding with the child and watching them grow.

Brownsville, Brooklyn$18/hr  |  13 yrs experience
Hi I'm Fiona and I have more than 10 years of experience in childcare. I am a mature, responsible, reliable and cheerful person with excellent childcare and interpersonal skills and extensive experience as a live-out/live-in nanny. I simply love children, love caring for them and find them fascinating, and I am seeking further nanny work to continue doing what I love and broadening my experience. I have experience in providing on-going care to children of different ages, track record of assuming total responsibility of home in absence of parents and very skilled in managing hostile behavior of children in a polite manner. I provided play dates, bathing/dressing, meal prep and snacks, housekeeping, laundry, date nights, help with learning activities and whatever was required of me from the parents.

The Calonge Family
& Ana G
Brooklyn$13.50/hr  |  1 kid
We found an amazing English and Spanish speaking nanny and we're looking for another family to share with. We live on the border of Kensington and Midwood. We're also close to East Flatbush and Mapleton.
The Clesowich Family
& Shelly Ann Lewis
Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn$18/hr  |  1 kid
We love our nanny, Shelly, and you will, too!!! We are an artist and a writer with a happy, outgoing 2.5-yr-old daughter who loves playing with kids of all ages. She will be going to the Smith St. Maternelle in September from 9-2:30 five days a week, and we are looking for a nanny share from 2:30-6:30 or 7:00. Shelly is either looking for someone who needs mornings/early afternoons (8:00-1:30ish, depending on how far you live from Henry St. and 1st Pl.), or she can care for your child all day and you can get a discount on the last 4 hours of the day, plus school holidays and vacations.

Shelly has been working for us since our daughter was 5 months old and we couldn't be happier -- she is so warm and loving and smart and fun (our daughter will often tell us that Shelly is her best friend)! Also always on time, good communication, all that stuff. She has a great network of other nannies in the neighborhood and there are always activities, trips, parties, crafts, etc.

A couple of Shelly's nanny friends are caring for baby siblings as well as toddlers, so if you have a baby, this might be ideal.

Our 9-month-old baby has been in a nanny share since she was 3 months old. The family we have been sharing with is now moving out of the city, so we are looking for a new family to share our wonderful nanny with. She has been great with the babies and they love her! Unfortunately, she only speaks Spanish.
The Turley Family
& Afra P
Brooklyn$24/hr  |  1 kid
Hi Parents,

My partner and I currently have a nanny share with another family in our building. The other family is scheduled to move out of state this coming Nov., and we are looking for another family to take over their portion of the share. Our caregiver is an amazing woman with over 20 years of child care experience. It’s been a pleasure working with her so far. Currently, we have coverage Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm, but we can work with a family to determine what hours/days make sense for your needs. Our caregiver is paid $24 an hour (which we split between the families) to care for our 4 month old boy and the other families’ 6 month old girl.

Looking for the other family to join our share beginning Nov 1st, but again, we can be flexible. We live in the Bedstuy area of BK, but own a car and are willing to travel a little bit to drop our son off. Message me if you are interested or want more info.
The Clevenger Family
& Edi Ret
Brooklyn$25/hr  |  2 kids
Hello! Our two girls are sweet and love other kids of all ages. Edi is a wonderful caregiver who has been with us for years, and has taught our children how to be kind but strong. As a bonus, she has also taught them Spanish! We're hoping to find someone who might want help in the morning, as our kids will be in school until 245pm. We're fine with overlap, but you'd have Edi all to yourself anytime from 7am until school pickup (245pm).

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Brooklyn, NY

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Brooklyn can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Brooklyn Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in New York?
  • Do you have a New York driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
