I have used two other agencies, both were difficult to work with and did not live up to their promises and Morningside Nannies did.
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 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.
I am delighted with the outcome, and enjoyed the process.
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!
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
The first person you recommended met my needs perfectly.

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.
