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.
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!
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
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.
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.
During our search for our current nanny I used several well-known services in Houston. I found that Morningside Nannies had the highest- quality applicants in town.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
At Morningside Nannies, we understand that when considering childcare options, cost is a huge factor. Fortunately for many parents, securing high quality in-home childcare is more affordable than they think. For families with more than one child or with parents who work long or untraditional hours, nanny care is comparable if not more affordable than other childcare options.
At Morningside Nannies we excel with matching the right nannies with the right families. The referral fee covers the cost of screening your candidate and the time required to carefully match a nanny’s skills, experience and personality with your caregiver expectations and preferences. Our referral/search fee is $100.00.
Should you hire one of our candidates for a long-term position, our referral fee is equivalent to six weeks of the nanny’s gross weekly wages. The minimum referral fee is $1000. This fee is payable upon the nanny accepting your job offer. Parents who hire temporary caregivers pay Morningside Nannies a referral fee of $25 to $40 per day. You’ll find our placement fees to be competitive with local and national reputable placement agencies.
Once you’ve found the candidate you wish to hire, you’ll negotiate an hourly rate directly with the nanny. Providers hired through Morningside Nannies typically earn a gross hourly rate of $14 to $18 per hour, with most averaging $15 to $16.
As a household employer, you’ll have tax obligations. Typically the costs associated with paying a nanny equal about 10% of the nanny’s gross annual salary. There are tax breaks and credits, however, which can negate this cost. In fact, the breaks some nanny employers receive exceeds their portion of taxes.
