You will have an amazing time. I was a nanny in Colorado for 12 months, many years ago (I was 19) and I met 3 other girls and we hired a car and drove from Colorado to New York and back again. It was fantastic.
Remember that you will likely get homesick at times and want to come home, but try really hard to battle through those days because it is one of the best experiences you will have.
Use your time off to get out and explore. There'll be times when money is tight, so on those days, you could spend the day in Central Park people watching, it's free and great fun, or wandering from downtown to uptown, stopping along the way to watch whatever street entertainment is happening. New York is brilliant. You will love it.

New York rocks! It is definitely the city that doesn't sleep, has a fabulous vibe, is very cosmopolitan and alive. I found it a little tricky to navigate around (on foot) if I was trying to figure out the grid system with the odd and even numbers etc. But that said, it has the cheapest taxi fares, takes a little getting used to the whole 'stepping out' and hailing a Cab, but once you get the hang of that it's not as intimidating.
I found it quite safe to walk around (on my own) at all hours of the night, but evenso, it's a big, busy city, so common sense will tell you what areas look a little dodgy and to be wary of. Always be mindful of your bag and looking like a 'tourist' so to speak.
I lived in Massachusetts, so was used to life in America, but it can be a bit daunting at first. Don't forget to tip, (not that you'll really get a chance to ) but even little things like getting your eyebrows waxed you need to tip.
Of course make sure your health insurance is adequate, especially if you go on holidays with your nanny family, make sure you know what you'll be covered for etc. You'll have a ball and what an amazing opportunity.
