We’ve been very happy with Amber! She is so sweet with our son, proactive, a huge help around the house, engaging, and super creative with coming up with activities for him. So glad we hired 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.
Quality of applicants was way above what we had hoped for. Thoroughly enjoyed working with your agency – we will highly recommend you to friends.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
During our search for our current nanny I used several well-known services in Houston. I found that Morningside Nannies had the highest- quality applicants in town.
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.
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.
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.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!

Childcare options in Bellaire are quite varied, as daycare centers may be private or public, religiously-affiliated or secular. Some early education centers and private preschools also offer extended hours to accommodate the childcare needs of busy parents along with the developmental needs of young children. Private, in-home childcare may sometimes be the choice most ideally suited to the unique needs of individual families, but the daunting and time-consuming process of searching for quality applicants, managing in-person interviews and conducting thorough background checks that are still compliant with state and Federal law can be a deterrent. That’s why we’re happy to do the work for you, matching one of our pre-screened, verified and highly-qualified nannies to your specifications.
