"Ioana was working with a mutual family over the past several months. She was an au pair and I provided behavior therapy to one of the children. She was very helpful with anything I needed during my time in the home. She was open to behavior strategies for the child and was often engaged with the other child during my sessions. She implemented feedback from the mother about taking care of the children and did a great job with them. Both children adored her and will miss her very much."

A little bit about me…

I am an actor and online educator who has been nannying for as long as I have been able to look after myself. I love playing dress up, arts and crafts, and actively engaging with the kids I watch. My own babysitters growing up served as incredible role models for me, and I hope to fulfill the same role for the children I look after.

A little bit about me…

FULLY VACCINATED KID EXPERT! I have a little over seven years of nanny experience and have worked with multiple families over time, solely on recommendations. I enjoy teaching the kids I work with Spanish and Portuguese, which I am proficient in, and helping them broaden their knowledge in foreign languages. I currently go to school and am in the works of getting my degree in Psychology, where I will be specializing in child psychology. Contributing to the life of a child, whether I am a nanny or a future psychologist, would be greatly fulfilling and my love for working with little ones runs so deep I want to continue to do so for a while!
I have a passion for young learners and am ambitious when teaching them a new language. I look forward to influencing, helping, and working with more families and children in the near future.

"It is with great pleasure that I write in enthusiastic endorsement of Simona Conti as a childcare provider. She has provided childcare for my son since January 2017 when he was five months old to the present day. From the beginning, Simona has been an ideal caretaker: responsible, kind, nurturing, trust-worthy, and attentive. She has always met and surpassed our expectations of childcare from her steadfast reliability and punctuality to navigating changes in our child’s routine to building a genuine relationship with our son. At each stage, she met our new suggestions and expectations for care: from warming breast milk bottles to playground safety to traveling on the subway. We have utmost trust that she will implement our family’s new practices and guidelines. She is always attentive to our child’s needs and reports her insights and observations with care. Simona is friendly, kind, and energetic. Simona has been a beloved and outstanding caretaker for our son."

A little bit about me…

Hello, my name is Sokhna Ndiaye, I am 23 years old. I actually have a passion for working with children. This for me is not just in social settings but professional ones as well! I like experiencing joy with others, especially children. Being a nanny allows me to combine my strengths such as being the oldest child of 8, and using my life experiences
What I enjoy about being a nanny is being around children and their continued excitement/enthusiasm for life. I believe that children are able to hold adults accountable in ways that are very subtle yet powerful. I love the children will interact with you with a sense of self assurance and tell you what they want when they want it. Which of course can be balanced through appropriate caretaking. I like being a nanny because it teaches me about myself and areas that I should work on, not just in professional settings but with self all while assisting parents in accomplishing their daily goals and tasks as it pertains to their children.

Nearby cities to find a special needs nanny

What are the responsibilities of a nanny?

Nanny responsibilities range from childcare tasks to assisting with household duties. The exact job description depends on the specific needs of the family. For a special needs nanny, duties might also include providing tailored care and implementing therapeutic activities. Activities can be tailored to the child's interests and abilities. For instance, exploring sensory-friendly exhibits at the Children's Museum of the Arts for a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Check out our guide for a deeper dive into nanny responsibilities.

How should I conduct a nanny interview?

When you find a nanny in New York, the interview process is crucial. Prepare in advance by creating a list of nanny interview questions tailored to your family's needs. These may touch on their experience with special needs children, their training, and their ability to handle potential emergency situations. Remember, it's essential to have a conversation, not just a Q&A session. Here's how to prepare for a nanny interview.

What is a nanny contract and why do I need one?

A nanny contract is an agreement between you and your nanny that outlines key details such as hours, salary, and job duties. It helps set clear expectations and can help prevent misunderstandings down the road. It's also a great place to lay out specifics about caring for children with special needs. For a closer look at the details, see our guide on nanny contracts.

What should I know about nanny payroll and taxes?

Nannies are considered household employees, which means you're responsible for withholding taxes from their paycheck and paying employer taxes. This process can be complex, but a nanny payroll service can help simplify it.

How do I ensure a safe and secure hire with background checks?

Background checks are a vital step in the hiring process. They can provide peace of mind about your potential nanny's criminal history, driving records, and other vital information. It's always wise to inform candidates in advance that you will be conducting a background check. You can learn more about our approach to background checks here.

How do I decide between a part-time, full-time, or summer nanny?

Your decision will depend on your family's needs and schedule. A full-time nanny often works 40 hours a week, while a part-time nanny might work less than that. A summer nanny is typically hired for a set period during the summer break. You might find that one type of arrangement better fits your family's requirements. To help you navigate these choices, we've prepared a guide detailing the costs associated with each type of nanny in New York.
