I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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.
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!
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.
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 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.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
The International Nanny Association, a non-profit educational association, has developed the INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam and the INA Nanny Credential Exam that nannies can take directly through the association.
The INA Nanny Basic Skills Exam tests a nanny’s basic childcare knowledge. No studying is required for this exam and the exam is taken online.
The INA Nanny Credential Exam tests a nanny’s practical childcare knowledge. To sit for the exam it is recommended that a nanny have at least 2,000 hours of childcare experience and review the study guide Beyond Parenting Basics, The International Nanny Association’s Official Guide to In-Home Childcare. Exam takers must also have current CPR and first aid certification.
The exam is taken online but test takers must secure a proctor to administer the exam. Those who pass the exam earn the title of INA Credentialed Nanny.
Both exams and the nanny credential exam study guide are available in both English and Spanish. Nannies must score at least a 70% for a passing score.
