Houston >Mom's Best Friend Nannies
“As a busy parent, the MBF staff makes it so easy; to where I only have to make ONE call to the agency, and they will find a wonderful caregiver for my children.”
finding nannies on the craigslist. Wish I could give this company no stars. This agency claims to 1) put candidates through the hoops then 2) say they screen out 80% of the candidates. Here is the shocker they post on craigslist at least twice a week looking for nannies. Gosh now that is a great way to find candidates. Families could save thousands looking for free and would you not check nannies yourself, I would.
The majority of our nannies come to us by word of mouth. We will on occasion use online listings to find candidates, most notably our own website, as it is our goal to find the right candidate for the right family. We also leverage Facebook as a resource for our nannies, and would love to be a resource for you if you are interested, whether we placed you or not. I am sorry we did not find you a job and you are not happy with us, and I wish you the best.
Need help with your kids? Call MBF!.
I recommend MBF to parents for any nanny or sitter needs. I use them for temporary nannies and for babysitting. MBF's staff has made it easy for me to book people - I have a running email exchange with the booking coordinator for the Houston area.
After my husband and I had to leave our triplets to return to work full-time, we began using MBF to meet our regular need for Friday care. Recently, we've added Mondays, as well.
We've called MBF every time we've needed a nanny or a babysitter. The caregivers have been highly observant and interactive. They have all been able to tell my identical boys apart and have kept track of anecdotes to tell me.
Caregivers have great experience working with children, and some have complimentary backgrounds, as well. I've had pre-med students, nursing students, and other parents through this service.
Some of the MBF personnel are able to sleep-train infants, which is another benefit.
Any time I know of a new parent, I recommend they consider using MBF for night nannies, at least one night a week.
We were overwhelmed when we brought our triplets home from the Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) - they were only five pounds or so. After a few weeks of sleeping 90 minutes at a time, we called the MBF agency for night nanny assistance.
MBF has been sensitive to my need to know more about caregivers and has set up phone interviews for me to talk to prospective caregivers. After the last several months, I feel as though MBF has learned my preferences, and I don't really need that extra screening call.
Thank you so much for the kind words about MBF. I'm happy we met the mark for you. We also had twins, one of whom was in the NICU for 3 weeks, and I certainly understand how scary that was.
Wonderful Caregivers and Staff. I would like to refer anyone with children to Mom's Best Friend for any sitter or nanny needs they may have. As a busy parent, the MBF staff makes it so easy; to where I only have to make ONE call to the agency, and they will find a wonderful caregiver for my children. The nannies who I have met have a great deal of experience of working with a variety of age groups. Many nannies I have encountered have also been with the company for years, and never cease to amaze my family. In regards to the background checks, I encourage any clients to visit their website to view the News clip (see Press Room-In the News), where Mom's Best Friend was interviewed by FOX & KVUE, and includes information on the very extensive and accurate background check company they use. It is a great feeling to trust the caregivers who are coming to my home. I STRONGLY recommend this agency for the trusted and exceptional care of your children!
Thanks for the kind words!
beware moms best friend. They charge your credit card with their commission, it's easily $2000+.. The nanny took off after one day. MBF won't return the money, but will promise to send another. The candidates were billed as nannys, most had a little babysitter experience.. They run a bait and switch, ie. MBF candidates ask for 13/hr at the interview and you'd agree, they'd call the day before wanting $18/hr and 10 more hours per week. No nanny but a feeling you just got scammed big time.
Bait and switch? Did someone other than the nanny you hired show up, demand a raise and then quit? Your posting does not make any sense. We have thousands of satisfied customers and this is the first time I ever heard of your complaint, and I own the company.
