We’ve been very happy with Amber! She is so sweet with our son, proactive, a huge help around the house, engaging, and super creative with coming up with activities for him. So glad we hired her.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
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.
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.
