I can help with
I'm Melanie Hayag, 41 years old, and a mother of 5 children. I'm a high school graduate. I have been working as a nanny for 9 years taking care of newborns and toddlers. I am an all-around nanny, I clean and take care of children. I can cook baby's food and I am willing to follow instructions. I worked with a local family for 3 years as a nanny/maid, they had 3 kids aged 1, 3 and 5. Then, another local family and I worked with them for 3 years as a full-time nanny to their 3 children, 3 years old and 2 newborn babies. Sometimes, I cleaned when the kids were sleeping. I have experience working with an Egyptian family in Dubai Marina for almost one year because they moved to Canada, they had a one-year-old kid and I worked for them as a nanny/maid. I also worked in Dubai Hills with a family from Afghanistan for a year as a nanny/maid, they had 3 kids aged 5, 10 and 12. It was only a one-year contract. My last employer was a British/Italian family, I only worked as a part-time nanny for 8 months. I am a high school graduate. I will be available on February 15th.
Recommendations I can provide
I can provide a reference from the British/Italian family I worked with for 8 months as a part-time nanny.
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.
