We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
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.
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.
I had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
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.
At Morningside Nannies, we require professional childcare related references to be considered for employment. We cannot accept family or friends as work references. If you hope to become a nanny, we suggest that gain at least two years of experience working in a daycare or nursery school.
No, Morningside Nannies does not charge nannies to apply for positions or require nannies to pay a fee once hired.
Nannies are expected to take on all child related duties. Typically, nannies are responsible for the children’s laundry, cleaning of the children’s bedroom and playroom and tidying up the kitchen after meals.
You may also be asked to do some grocery shopping, run child related errands, arrange play dates and possibly take the children to school or to doctor or dentist appointments.
Some families will ask that the nanny take care of the family’s laundry and some would appreciate it if the nanny would get the family dinner started for them.
In the Houston area, nannies generally earn from $10 to $18 per hour. Experience, educational background and salary history impact earning potential.
As soon as you leave our office, we contact your previous employers. When we have completed checking your references we will contact you and tell you about available positions. Once you have been offered a position, we will check your driving record and criminal history.
