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.
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.
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.
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.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.

Traveling with your children allows you to enjoy a family vacation that you’ll all remember for years to come. However, we also understand that to truly enjoy a vacation, the adults in the family need to be able to slip away from time to time to experience some of the more mature aspects of the city. Exploring exotic cuisine isn’t always an option with picky children in your party, which is why we’re proud to extend our services to vacationing families. Our nannies are subjected to an exhaustive background screening process that includes past employment verification, criminal and driving record checks, and cross-referencing with the National Sex Offender Registry. Whether you’ll require childcare services for the duration of your trip or merely for an afternoon, you can rely on our experienced, competent childcare providers to ensure that your children are happy, entertained and well-looked after while you’re away.
