Hi there! My name is Christina and I’m a 29 year old college graduate originally from Atlanta, GA and have been living in LA for the last 5 years. I’ve worked with children as young as 3 months, and as old as 15 year olds as a driver for activities and school runs. I love working with children, and was a camp counselor back in Atlanta for years so I’m comfortable creating age appropriate activities, managing school work & homework, and thinking up fun arts and crafts that kids of all ages can enjoy!

Shani Bernard
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.

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.
