Morningside Nannies was outstanding. The process was stress free and the caliber of applicants was far superior to that of other agencies. Morningside Nannies was thorough in their review and timely presentation of candidates.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
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.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
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 only sent me nannies that fit my needs. I felt that I wasn’t sent the resume of everyone on file.
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.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
When working for a family, there isn’t a human resources department that manages your benefits package or guides you through the business side of nannying. For nannies who wish to save for their retirement, the ball is in your court, waiting for you to take action and put your retirement savings plan into practice.
When considering retirement, in addition to putting money into savings, many nannies wish to start a formal retirement plan. Fortunately, there are a few simple options that you can manage on your own that don’t require your employer to startup or fund.
With a Roth IRA you can contribute to it on your own or you can ask your employer to also contribute. Contributions to a Roth IRA are made using after tax dollars. The Roth IRA grows tax-free and you won’t need to pay taxes on your withdrawal when you retire.
With a Traditional IRA only you can contribute and your contributions are made using tax-deferred dollars. When you withdraw funds upon retirement, however, they are subject to taxes.
As of 2012, for employees under age 50, $5,000 per year can be contributed to a Roth or Traditional IRA. For employees over 50 that amount increases to $6,000 per year.
