"We are first time parents with a 20-month old. Our son’s daycare was closed for Spring Break and we needed help for the week. We were nervous about having a non-family member care for our little one, but Carmen made us feel very comfortable. Carmen was able to tune in right away to the needs of our son and put him at ease. You could tell that she had a lot of experience and knowledge of working with children. Carmen also helped us with laundry, dishes, and cooking which we really appreciated. Carmen was professional, calm, flexible and responsible. We can’t thank Carmen enough for the high quality of care she provided for our son. We definitely will hire Carmen again in the future."

A little bit about me…

I am an educated and very active single woman without children or pets looking mostly for more on call, travel nanny or full-time work. Free time is spent leading a very healthy lifestyle cooking mostly organic Whole Foods, reading, exercising, attending different shows and spending time at parks, museums and cultural exhibits as well as traveling and volunteering.

I have teaching experience and extensive experience working as an on call nanny, travel nanny, baby nurse and full-time nanny in recent years and also as a babysitter throughout grade school, high school and college. I also have experience working at day care centers (for adults and children). I can send my resume, letters of recommendation and NY police check to you. Please note, I still presently work for the families who wrote reviews for me, but they had to choose an end date from the drop down menu.

"I hired Camille in July 2021 as a travel nanny and she came with us for two weeks to Italy when our son was 18 months. Since then she’s worked days for us when we are in New York. We live in the UK so sadly she isn’t a F/T option for us. Camille is an excellent nanny and exceedingly responsible. Within minutes of meeting her, our shy son was happily playing with her on the floor. I would trust her implicitly in my home and with my child. We were in a villa with a pool and lots of stairs and we knew he was completely safe alone with her, including swimming. When it was too hot, she filled hours drawing, reading, etc. She cooked him nutritious food. She was amenable to what we wanted and needed each day and needed. When we didn’t need her, she was off doing her own thing. She would be a great hire, esp for a family with busy parents or a single parent. She researches local activities and parks and always has a new thing to do. We were fortunate to find her."

A little bit about me…

I'm a musical theatre student currently, I'm graduating in October. I take classes at night, so I’m looking for something between 8am and 4-5:30. I'm from Reno, Nevada, where I frequently worked as a face painter at birthday parties as well as an on-call babysitter. My mother is a midwife/ doula so I'm very familiar with young babies and what's necessary to care for them, as well as older children. I love disney & pixar as much as any child I've taken care of, and I never get tired of watching the same movie over and over with them :)

"Malea immediately felt like family to us, which is the best feeling when hiring a nanny. Our toddler LOOOOOVED her. They invented all kinds of fun games together. He would literally push us out the door when she arrived. It was so sad when she moved to NYC! We highly recommend Malea for nannying services."

"Gladys taught my daughter (who is 3) at Metrokids and she was fantastic. She has an early childhood Associates Degree and a real gift for children. We engaged her to teach our son (who is 5) Spanish after school every day. I think he made good linguistic progress and had good fun with her -- he is very fond. I’m confident you will feel lucky to have her help with your children."

"Angie is an outstanding nanny and I am so glad that she was a part of my son's life. From the very beginning, she was very motivated and eager to get to know my 13 month old and how she could make him happy and comfortable. She has a very calming presence and my son had been isolated because of the pandemic, so he was extra challenging to work with because of his fear of strangers. He accepted Angie within a few days, and is now thriving and happy because of her care. She is very meticulous, punctual, patient, clean, and hardworking, and truly cares about children. Her enthusiasm about our son and how he changes every week is genuine. We can trust her to follow instructions when necessary but also use her judgment and instincts, which are usually right on target. I would highly recommend Angie to any family who wants an exceptional nanny that will love their child and keep them safe. He is about to start daycare, which is the only reason we can't keep him with Angie forever!"

A little bit about me…

Hello!
My name is Kenzie, I am 24, and I am soon-to-graduate from UNG with a B.S in Psychology!
I will be walking in December, with one final credit to be finished in Fall '23.

I have been working in childcare since my very first job at 14.
I started as a babysitter, and my most recent job has been as a lead preschool teacher.
I am passionate about providing care to younger generations!
Both my work and my academic experience inform my childcare philosophy, keeping my approach well-rounded and up-to-date with the most recent developments in childcare research.

I am personally interested in art and fashion- my minor is in art history, and my eventual career goal is to conduct academic research in art psychology. I hope to go to graduate school after a few years of saving!

In the meantime, I want to spend my time and energy caring for the next generation.
I love children, and I look forward to the time I spend both teaching and learning from them!

Thanks for reading! : )

My approach is grounded in a calm and empathetic demeanor. I understand that each child is different, and my goal is to create an environment where they feel seen, heard, and valued.

How to Find a Babysitter in New York, NY

Nanny Lane is a child care website meant to help you find a babysitter in your area. Our child care services include background checks, PLUS, and payroll.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in New York, 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 New York can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

New York 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.
