I am a hardworking Mom. I can take care of children from newborns to older kids to the elderly. I can take care of pets as well and do house chores. I am a high school graduate. I am respectful, patient, honest, and kind to everyone. I have 8 years of experience in Abu Dhabi and 2 years in Kuwait working as a nanny, housemaid and pet sitter. I worked with a local family for 2 years, they had 3 kids, 4 years old, 20 months old and 1 month old. For 2 years, I worked with an American family with 2 children, 2 years old and 1 month old. They also had 2 big dogs. I worked again with a local family for 2 years, I took care of their one-month-old baby. I have experience as well in Kuwait for 2 years as a housemaid, they had dogs and cats and a small backyard. I watered the plants and took care of their garden.

Conditions and Obligations for Hiring a Nanny
- Salary and Employment Terms: Ensure that you provide fair and reasonable employment terms to your nanny. This includes a monthly salary, working hours, rest days, annual leave, sick leave, and overtime compensation as per MOM regulations.
- Accommodation: Provide suitable accommodation for your nanny, which should meet the requirements set by MOM. The living space should be clean, well-maintained, and offer adequate privacy.
- Medical and Insurance Coverage: Purchase and maintain medical insurance for your nanny, covering inpatient and outpatient treatments, as well as personal accident coverage. MOM requires a minimum coverage amount, so verify the specific requirements.
- Levies and CPF Contributions: As an employer, you are responsible for paying monthly levies to MOM. These levies are used to fund programs and services for foreign domestic workers. Additionally, you are required to make Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributions for your nanny, which include employer and employee contributions.
- Settling-In Program (SIP): Enroll your nanny in the mandatory Settling-In Program (SIP), which provides essential information on living and working in UAE. The program aims to help nannies adapt to their new environment and understand their rights and responsibilities.
- Termination and Repatriation: In the event of contract termination, you are responsible for arranging your nanny’s repatriation, including covering the necessary expenses such as airfare.
