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.
Morningside Nannies blew the others away!
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
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 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.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
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.
At Morningside Nannies, we understand that when considering childcare options, cost is a huge factor. Fortunately for many parents, securing high quality in-home childcare is more affordable than they think. For families with more than one child or with parents who work long or untraditional hours, nanny care is comparable if not more affordable than other childcare options.
At Morningside Nannies we excel with matching the right nannies with the right families. The referral fee covers the cost of screening your candidate and the time required to carefully match a nanny’s skills, experience and personality with your caregiver expectations and preferences. Our referral/search fee is $100.00.
Should you hire one of our candidates for a long-term position, our referral fee is equivalent to six weeks of the nanny’s gross weekly wages. The minimum referral fee is $1000. This fee is payable upon the nanny accepting your job offer. Parents who hire temporary caregivers pay Morningside Nannies a referral fee of $25 to $40 per day. You’ll find our placement fees to be competitive with local and national reputable placement agencies.
Once you’ve found the candidate you wish to hire, you’ll negotiate an hourly rate directly with the nanny. Providers hired through Morningside Nannies typically earn a gross hourly rate of $16 to $20 per hour, with most averaging $17 to $19.
As a household employer, you’ll have tax obligations. Typically the costs associated with paying a nanny equal about 10% of the nanny’s gross annual salary. There are tax breaks and credits, however, which can negate this cost. In fact, the breaks some nanny employers receive exceeds their portion of taxes.
