We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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 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.
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.
Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry. Many thanks go to Morningside Nannies for that.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
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 am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
