Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
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.
I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry. Many thanks go to Morningside Nannies for that.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
