I wanted to pass along how happy I am to have Fatima working with our family. After just 11/2 days, I can see that she is a perfect fit for for child. We are lucky to have her.
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.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
Indera is just wonderful. She is always happy and clearly loves her job. She is kind and fun and as for the practicalities, she is always on time and very flexible.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
