A little bit about me…

Dear families, my name’s Melissa, I’m 27yo and I'm from Santa Marta, Colombia. I’ve been around kids since I was 15yo and I love it! I've been working as a nanny/household manager for 9 years.

I consider myself a playful person, I like to engage with the kids and contribute to their growth weather that’s through reading, singing, going on adventures outside and more. I have an extroverted personality and love to to keep them busy doing arts and crafts.

I have good references, clean driving record and reliable transportation.

I'm extremely punctual, clean and organized. I’m great at setting up a routine to follow with the kids. Also I feel comfortable doing all the kids related activities - like bed/nap-times, cooking meals, laundry etc!

I’ve done day care facilities, volunteering and have experience with teaching Spanish and emotional development.

Feel free to reach out!

A little bit about me…

I am originally from South Africa, and I grew up with a lot of nieces and babysat everyday, which is when I fell in love with children. I’ve always known that I’m going to have at least 5 children when I get married because I love big families. I’ve been babysitting for free since I was 10 years old and started babysitting as a job when I was 14. I’ve babysat children from ages 0 to 9 years of age. I have 4 years of babysitting experience. I have worked as a live-in nanny for a few months.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in New York

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.

New York 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 New York? 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 New York?
  • Do you have a New York driver’s license? 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.
