We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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.
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!
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
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.
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.
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
The summer months pose a real childcare dilemma for working parents of school aged children. Securing consistent daycare for a few months out of the year can feel as challenging as piecemealing summer camp, family and friend care. Fortunately, for parents seeking consistent, convenient and customized summer childcare, summer nannies are available on a full or part-time basis.
During the school year, many parents work around their children’s school schedule, allowing them to utilize school as their childcare arrangement. But once summer starts, that consistent childcare is no longer available and parents are forced to make alternative childcare arrangements.
While summer camps and recreational programs can be a good option, most often these programs don’t run long enough for young children to negate the need for childcare. Since many of these programs are geared towards older children, parents of preschool and elementary school aged children are forced to find before and after camp care or skip out on camp all together and settle for sending the kids to grandma’s.
For parents seeking flexible and consistent summer care, hiring a summer nanny can be the best option. Not only will a summer nanny provide attentive childcare, she can transport the children to and from summer activities, juggle the children’s summer social schedules, do the children’s laundry and keep their areas neat, clean and tidy.
Summer nanny care allows you to customize your child’s summer schedule. With a summer nanny you won’t have to worry about transportation logistics or getting out of the house on time. Your summer nanny can help with that.
And since a summer nanny is available for the duration of the summer, you don’t have to worry about securing care for the days that fall between when one camp ends and the next begins. Your summer nanny works around your schedule and childcare needs.
Summer nannies can take the children on outings and engage them in age-appropriate activities. They can even provide academic support, ensuring that your child retains what he learned through the school year and even build on that knowledge to prepare for his next grade level.
When seeking summer nanny care arrangements, you’ll want to begin your search between March and April to ensure your care arrangement is in place prior to the start of summer. Leave yourself between two and eight weeks to find the right nanny for your family. You can begin your summer nanny search by completing our online registration form. Once submitted a placement specialist will contact you within 24 hours to begin your summer nanny search.
