Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
The quality of candidates was very good. It was a difficult decision but Amy has proven to be a wonderful choice. We could not have found a better person. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a nanny.
Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
I trust Morningside Nannies & their research into their nannies more than any of the other seven agencies we talked with. The checks are reliable and the quality of nannies was superb. The process of finding a nanny was handled quite professionally.
Morningside Nannies was outstanding. The process was stress free and the caliber of applicants was far superior to that of other agencies. Morningside Nannies was thorough in their review and timely presentation of candidates.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
