I worked at a childcare center for 4 years and worked with children aged 2-5. I was in charge of the activity room and making sure the children were being looked after. I usually watched about 5 kids at a time. I was also in charge of their meals and naptime. I also nannied for twin girls for 2 consecutive summers and was in charge of their whole day. I watched them from 6 am til 7 or later just depending on when their parents got home. I took them to their activities as well as to and from school. I also have babysat the same family for the last 5 years and actually met them through the childcare center I worked at. I also have been babysitting for various families for the last nine years.

I am a college graduate from CW Post, with my bachelor's in early childhood education. The reason I've decided to choose teaching as my profession is because of my love, and passion for children. I have years of experience working with children of all ages from babysitting, nannying and also working as a head teacher for a daycare center. I'm also a very proud mommy to a very special little boy! My natural mommy like personality has finally become a reality, and I love every moment of it. My promise to you, from one mommy to another (or daddy) is to always care for your child as if they were my own. Not only will they always be having fun, learning and exploring -- but also loved and safe.

Hire a nanny with great references
Gabriela A.

Gabriela is an exceptional nanny, we needed some extra pair of hands for a short period of time and it was by far the best decision we’ve ever made by hiring her. She was great with my little girl and was able to manage her busy schedule and yet keep her safe and entertained. I strongly recommend Gabriela if you need someone responsible, reliable and organized. - Lisa

Gabriela babysat for my two kids ages 3 and 5 for the past 3 months on the weekends. She is an amazing babysitter, sweet and kind. She really plays with the kids and give them her full attention. The best babysitter we ever had. Too bad we move to Long Island and now she is far from us. I highly recommend Gabriela. - Anne

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Merrick, NY

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.

Merrick 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 Merrick? 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 Merrick?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in NY? 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.
