Santa Monica$25/hr  |  4 yrs experience
Hi there! I'm Shani. I am lovable, I love kids and they love me! I am firm, but always fair giving love, affection and positive affirmation. I am a DONA trained PostPartum Doula, great with premature babies, newborns & twins. I can also help with potty training. I do my best to keep the television off, get out of the house & story time. I am looking to be part of a family not just an employee. I want a family that will embrace me as I will embrace them. I have excellent references from families upon request and you can call me anytime. In cases of financial hardship, I will work with families. You will never have to worry about your kids when they are with me. I am also available for fun babysitting and night care.

I will provide 2 references, do meal prep for the children, open for travel and take care of light house keeping as it pertains to the child. ie: Bottle washing, cleaning up toys etc.

I must be clear, I am not a housekeep.

Fun fact: I grew up on a tour bus.

Santa Monica$20/hr  |  9 yrs experience
Hello, I am from Russia, been living in USA 12 years and loving California so much. I have a degree in marketing and international business but pursuing a career in the tech industry right now. I keep an active lifestyle, certified yoga and rock climbing instructor. I love children so much and have been babysitting since I was 13. When it comes to my babysitting style I value quality time, bonding activities, keeping their normal schedule, active hangouts and learning new things. I am known for being patient, kind and reliable. I was traveling for work the last 2 years so haven’t done much babysitting but now that I work full time I’m excited to get back into it for weeknights and weekends.

Afsaneh Amiri
Santa Monica$25/hr  |  10 yrs experience
I've been a nanny for 10 years. I've worked with infant age to 9 years old. I have a child-friendly car and a good driving record. I've taken 30 units of child development at LACC and worked for 5 years as a lab technician in Israel. I also worked as a substitute teacher at Temple Bet Am. For many years I was a volunteer at my childrens' elementary school.

As a nanny I make sure the kids have lots of fun and learn with play. I encourage organization, respect, openess with emotions, honesty and responsibility. I prepare balanced meals, help with homework, bathe them, do their laundry, drive them to appointments and activities, facilitate playdates and help with anything else in their daily routines.

I believe in keeping calm and being firm.

I love working with children, the amount of positive emotion I get out of it is enormous.

Paige T.

Paige babysat my kids a few times, while I was out of town for a wedding and a date night with my husband. When we came back home, at night, the house was tidy and there were no toy messes. My kids said they watched Moana, played board games, and read books. The kids were clean and in bed before bedtime, too! She did an amazing job! - A Church Mom

She is super loving, and always brings a smile to my daughter. She would babysit play dates, when my child had her friends over. Paige played dress up, colored and painted, even played house and pretend kitchen. My daughter still talks about Paige today! - Rebecca

What really amazed me with Jasmine's work ethic was her way of communicating what her schedule was like and able to accommodate with things I would like her to do. My nephew really loves her and she helps him with making him food & anything he might need. Definitely recommend! - Brian

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Santa Monica, CA

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Santa Monica Nanny Interviews

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

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Santa Monica? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Santa Monica?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in CA? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

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 prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
