I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
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 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.
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.
Morningside was by far the best as compared to the other services we used!
I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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.
In a time crunch you provided me with two excellent applicants within hours!
It’s been a dream to work with Morningside, the caliber of nannies was definitely apparent.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.

What references say – as much as what they don’t, helps gain a better insight into the quality of a nanny’s previous work. Since most job applicants only provide contacts of those who will speak positively about them, it’s important to dig deep, uncover additional references and ask lots and lots of open ended and follow up questions.
