We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
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.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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.
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.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
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 wanted to pass along how happy I am to have Fatima working with our family. After just 11/2 days, I can see that she is a perfect fit for for child. We are lucky to have her.
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.
