In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
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.
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.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
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.
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
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.
