We used two other services and an online service. Morningside Nannies had the most highly qualified candidates, one of whom we selected.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
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 was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry.
We put our trust in Morningside to place us with a nanny that was perfect for our family’s needs and Morningside delivered.
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.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.
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.
