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.
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.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
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.
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 blew the others away!
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.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
When working for a family, there isn’t a human resources department that manages your benefits package or guides you through the business side of nannying. For nannies who wish to save for their retirement, the ball is in your court, waiting for you to take action and put your retirement savings plan into practice.
When considering retirement, in addition to putting money into savings, many nannies wish to start a formal retirement plan. Fortunately, there are a few simple options that you can manage on your own that don’t require your employer to startup or fund.
With a Roth IRA you can contribute to it on your own or you can ask your employer to also contribute. Contributions to a Roth IRA are made using after tax dollars. The Roth IRA grows tax-free and you won’t need to pay taxes on your withdrawal when you retire.
With a Traditional IRA only you can contribute and your contributions are made using tax-deferred dollars. When you withdraw funds upon retirement, however, they are subject to taxes.
As of 2012, for employees under age 50, $5,000 per year can be contributed to a Roth or Traditional IRA. For employees over 50 that amount increases to $6,000 per year.
