Thank you for contacting Morningside Nannies. We are a full service, award-winning nanny agency offering full-time and part-time referrals and back-up, temporary and babysitting services for families in the Greater Houston area.
We pride ourselves on being the best nanny agency in Houston.

Our full and part-time nannies take on all tasks related to childcare. In addition to providing attentive and customized care, they prepare the children’s meals, do the children’s laundry and transport the children to and from activities, should you wish.
If you decide to register with our agency, we do require a $100 registration fee to begin your search. Once registered, a placement specialist will contact you to learn more about your family and your childcare needs. Upon a full or part-time job offer to one of our nannies, our referral fee (equal to 6 weeks of the nanny’s weekly wages) is payable in full. Most of our nanny positions are placing in the $17-20 per hour wage range.
For temporary services, once registered and care is requested, a qualified and pre-screened provider will be assigned to your job. Because of the volume of temporary care we provide, there is no client interview process for temporary providers, however the caregiver will call you to introduce herself once care has been confirmed. We do our best to honor temp provider requests for future assignments. Temporary services are billed at our daily referral rate (typically $25 per day*) and the caregiver is paid an hourly rate directly by you at the end of each shift (typically $15 per hour). We successfully staff 95% of all of our temporary care requests.
Should you be seeking a summer nanny, the referral fee for summer nanny placements is $1200. Summer nanny searches usually begin in March.
Should you be seeking a newborn care specialist, we do have a limited number of providers available. Our newborn care specialists charge $20 to $35 per hour and set their own rates. The referral rate is $35 per day and they also work on an assignment basis. Please note, our newborn care specialists tend to book up several months in advance.
I'm sure you may have questions for me. Please feel free to reply to this email or contact me by phone at (713) 526-3989. Our office is open 830am to 5pm M-F, Central Standard Time.
