In Dexter Season 5 Harrison's nanny looks like an important part of the story. She is the only one who passed the nanny interview held by Debra. She really even cares for Harrison. So why did she disappear in the start of season 6 ? I am unaware if it's mentioned later.

according to the dexter wiki she left the series with no in universe explanation. And there was no mention why Batista's younger sister Jamie took over the role as nanny. – Jared Aug 29 '13 at 22:48
@Jared you can post it as an answer with the wikia link you are telling about. – Ankit Sharma Aug 30 '13 at 11:22

It doesn't matter--she was very good, and falls into the category of "forgotten character" Showtime dropped the ball, just as they did for the show in the final season. So many wonderful endings that could have been, for this wonderful show. But you notice all the "new Directors" getting their decorations towards the end, sort of came across as "to hell with the audience and the integrity of the story line through" all the great seasons. Murder Leguerta--kill Deb, leave Dex alone without his son--the nonesense had no end. What crap – J Isbell Oct 8 at 6:23

According to the Dexter Wikia, Sonya left the show without any explanation. There was also no explanation as to why Angel Batista's younger sister Jamie took over from Sonya.

The Wikia page for Sonya also adds

Sonya unfortunately fell into the category of characters that disappear between seasons. This is likely due to their contract only requiring their appearance for one season and/or Showtime deciding to drop them afterwards. It's assumed that Showtime felt a younger, more visually attractive woman was needed to replace her for on screen appearances.

According to IMDB, she took up another role Corp & Anam after season 5, so perhaps she was only contracted for 1 season and couldn't be obligated into another season.
