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.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
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’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 described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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 just wanted to let you know that Elizabeth is fantastic! She is great with the boys, and so helpful with such a calm and pleasant way of being. We are so happy with her.
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
