Frequently Asked Questions

With 20 years in the nanny business we’ve gotten asked a lot of questions. Here you’ll find the questions we get asked most frequently along with their answers. If you have a question please call us at (713) 526-3989 and one of our placement specialists will gladly answer it.


How do you find your nannies?

For nearly 30 years, Morningside Nannies has been helping to meet the needs of families in the Houston area. As an award winning nanny placement agency, we’ve developed a reputation for matching the best nannies with the best families. Many of our nanny applicants come to us through referrals from other caregivers and previous clients. Many of our nannies have been placed by us in the past and have returned for their next placement. Like most businesses, we also actively recruit qualified candidates through our marketing campaigns.


Do you offer back-up care or emergency services?

We know that unlike with daycare providers, nannies can and do provide care for mildly ill children. That’s why we offer last minute, back-up and sick care coverage to families in the Houston area. With our temporary care program, qualified, screened nannies come to your home to provide care for your mildly ill child. Contact our office to get enrolled and to request a caregiver.


Can we give the gift of childcare to new parents?

At Morningside Nannies, we know there’s little more new parents value that a solid night’s sleep or a few hours of much needed rest. From hiring a babysitter so that the couple can enjoy some down time, to hiring a newborn care specialist to help the new parents transition to parenthood, whether you’re securing a qualified childcare provider for a few hours or a few days, it will be a much appreciated gift. Our office staff will be delighted to arrange your gift.


Can we hire a babysitter so my husband and I can enjoy a night on the town or a weekend away?

Yes! At Morningside Nannies, we have evening and weekend nannies at the ready. All of our nannies have current background checks on file and have had their references verified. We’ll carefully match you with a nanny that can meet your family’s unique care needs. With one of our nannies, while you’re off having a good time, your kids will be having one too.


Can we hire a nanny for just the summer months?

For many parents of school-aged children, the summer months can present a childcare challenge.

At Morningside Nannies, nannies are available to provide care during the summer months. During the summer months, the pool of qualified nanny applicants traditionally swells as many college students studying early childhood education and elementary school teachers seek seasonal employment as a summer nanny.

Summer nannies can help create a memorable and enjoyable summer for your children. From hanging out at the pool, to playing soccer in the backyard, nannies can help keep kids active and engaged during the summer months.  Summer nannies can take children on age-appropriate outings, like to the Moody Gardens or the zoo, and are even available to travel with you on your family’s summer vacation, if you wish to have a mini vacation of your own after the sun goes down and the kids are in bed.

Summer nannies can also help kids retain what they learned throughout the school year and even help prepare them to enter the next grade level come fall.


Why don’t you offer a free replacement policy for part-time and live-in nannies?

It is rare to find experienced and well referenced nannies to fill part-time and live-in positions. The hardest positions for us to fill are live-in positions and positions that require afterschool care only. Because we can’t promise to find an appropriate replacement in a timely manner to fill these vacancies, we are unable to commit to offering a free replacement.
