Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
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 blew the others away!
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
I was very impressed with all of my dealings with Morningside and took great comfort in knowing that your candidates were well “researched” and of a high caliber. Our full-time nanny far exceeded what I thought was available in the Houston market, and I was just as impressed with our part-time nanny who was another Morningside referral. I do wish more folks would use professional nanny agencies such as Morningside to locate full-time childcare!
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’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!
In order to sustain a healthy and productive relationship with your nanny, it’s important to evaluate and meet for a performance review at least once a year. Even though you may be offering praise and tips along the way, a formal meeting with your nanny can help clarify expectations and provide feedback for both the nanny and parents on how to maintain a healthy parenting partnership.
Before you begin the review, consider the topics you want to discuss. From an evaluation of your nanny’s techniques as a childcare provider and caregiver to salary and benefits, prepare yourself before the review by determining your preferences and what is ultimately the best for your family.
Before meeting with your nanny, review the job description to make sure you are reviewing the criteria that was agreed upon when his or her contract began.
It’s also important to provide your nanny with advance notice of when the performance evaluation will take place. This will give the nanny time to prepare and review his or her own performance in your home.
It may also help to type out a formal evaluation form so that your nanny has documented comments and feedback based on his or her performance throughout the year. You can add categories such as childcare and work habits and offer a rating system to help your nanny see areas where he or she is succeeding and areas that need improvement.
Although your nanny may be viewed as a member of your family, an annual review should offer a mix of both formal and informal discussions. There may be some differences in thought, so be prepared to approach delicate topics with a professional approach.
The following topics of discussion may be appropriate for the annual review:
An annual review does not have to be a negative experience for you or the nanny. In fact, a performance review should not yield any surprises if you have been communicating feedback and concerns throughout the year. The key to a successful evaluation meeting relies on communicating how your nanny is excelling and also communicating any areas needing improvement.
Remember to keep your conversation friendly yet professional and allow your nanny the opportunity to express any concerns he or she is experiencing so you can both work out a plan to resolve any issues.

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 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!
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
Morningside Nannies only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
I had an emergency situation and had a nanny sent over for the following day. I am so pleased with the service provided by Morningside Nannies. My son immediately fell in love with the nanny assigned to us. We couldn’t be happier.
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.
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.
