Hello! I’m Erika Baroro from the Philippines and I work as a Hiring Coordinator in one of Dubai’s most trusted nanny companies.
So what exactly does CloudNine Kids do?
We provide a high quality nanny placement service to families in Dubai. Our process has been carefully designed to locally source, screen and introduce only the best nannies based on relevant childcare experience and matching the nanny with the family’s requirements.
All roles must meet the UAE domestic labour law requirements so that we can ensure the nannies will be treated fairly and will be happy working with their future employer. I specifically handle all our candidates and ensure that they are suitable to be put forward to the next stage, which is then taken over by our team of experienced British and Australian childcare consultants.
We reach nannies through referral, direct application and the help of social media. All nannies are interviewed over the phone initially and then in person with us. We attain at least 1 verbal reference from the most recent sponsor and if we feel the candidate is suitable, they will be introduced to the family for direct interview. The family and nanny will make their decision and should they wish to go ahead, the family is responsible for the legal hiring process, sponsorship and salary.
We assist not only the family to find their new nanny, but also, we help nannies to become professional, knowledgeable and prepared for their new role. Through a diverse range of training programs and courses, nannies learn about the relevant age group of children they will be caring for (from newborn – 6 years) and how to handle any accidents or emergencies that may arise. We educate them about how to handle different behaviours and how to engage and interact with children. We teach them about best hygiene standards, health and nutrition, and give them important tips about how to arrange the home to prevent possible accidents from happenng.
In partnership with HSS HEALTH AND SAFETY SOLUTION, an award winning First Aid training company, we provide Pediatric First Aid and CPR training so that nannies know how to respond in case of a chocking incident, lose of breath and much more.
We also provide training for Nannies that are already working with a family, so we can help upskill and refresh any Nanny’s level of knowledge. Our aim is to improve the standard of childcare at home, one nanny at a time!
