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.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
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.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
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.
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!
