I was very impressed and satisfied with Debra and Lynn at Nannies Who Care. First of all, I researched every nanny agency listed in the phonebook and contacted each one. Nannies Who Care had the best price for their services, hands down.
They also performed all of the same background checks as the more expensive agency. I was pleased with the flexibility they offered as well, whether you need a long term placement, a once in a while babysitter for a night out, or a temporary placement for special needs, they have it. What helped me most was their willingness and ability to jump on the ball as soon as I called. I had a very specific need where I required someone for approx 2-5 months for several days a week. While Debra and Lynn started working on the placement immediately, I became very ill and needed someone the very next day. They stepped up to the plate and were able to provide me with a nanny the next day.
While continuing to provide me with help for a couple of days they were still trying to find a long term placement for me and set up interviews. Each nanny who came to my home was professional and capable. I was never concerned for the safety of my children in their hands. After one of my interviews for the long term help, I chose Kelly. She proved to be not only capable, but caring and compassionate as well. She truly became a blessing to our home and we really hated to see her go when our time of need was over. Kelly was always on time, pleasant, truly trying to help raise the children and not just keep an eye on them.
She provided a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for the kids every day (even in the heat of Florida). She also was willing to help with other needs and proceeded to handle laundry for us and trips to the grocery store as well. She was a very calming influence on our household and never once did she raise her voice or lose her temper with my 3 children, ages 3and half years, 18 mon, and 3 mon.. Due to my illness she even went so far as to take our children to their birthday party when the oldest turned 2 and 4, and ran all over with them. If it were not for her my children’s birthday would have gone uncelebrated because my husband was required to work and I was unable to care for my children myself.
The agency was also flexible with payment options and did not call constantly to settle up, but was patient with my circumstances that caused a communication delay. I will have absolutely no reservations about using them in the future as the need arises. I have and will continue to recommend them to my friends for all their needs. They were truly a life saver with how quickly they were able to find someone. How courteous and helpful they were and how accommodating, they had no problem working on their weekends and late at night to get me the help I needed.
I know it’s a lot Debra but it’s all true. Please feel free to use whatever parts you need and if you are able to pull out the parts about Kelly and put that in her file or get it to her that would be great.
Thanks again for all your help and I really was so pleased with your prices.

“Nannies Who Care has been my dependable and reliable source for help since both of my sons were born. I have used this service for finding full time nannies to finding weekend babysitters and everything in between and have never had a complaint with the quality of the nannies or the quality of the care they have provided. After 8 years I am still using them and will continue to do so for as many years as I will need their assistance.”

We’ve used Nannies Who Care twice (for long term nannying solutions) and would most definitely turn to them again. Our first nanny was so wonderful she has become a great friend to both my husband and I as well as the kids. She only left us when she started her own family. And our second nanny is turning out to be a bull’s eye too! Nannies Who Care were able to quickly provide an already hand picked short list based on our very fussy criteria and made the selection process so much easier for us…just what you need when you’re juggling kids and work at the same time! Thank you Nannies Who Care. Another great job!

We began using Nannies Who Care when our daughter was about four years old — some five years ago. We were at a point in our lives when we did not have any local family who could babysit our daughter. Since that time, we have used the services of Nannies Who Care many times and with several different nannies. We have found the nannies we have employed to be professional, responsible, and caring. We have also found the owner, Debra Brown, to be extremely supportive and responsive to our individual concerns. We would not hesitate to recommend this organization to anyone looking for quality childcare services.

My husband is on active duty in the USAF stationed at MacDill AFB. He is out of town nearly every other month for about a week to two weeks. My son who is two and a half attends daycare and I work full-time. When my husband is sent out of town, I lean on the staff at Nannies Who Care to find a nanny to care for my son in our home because his daycare closes at 6:00 pm and I work until 6:00 pm. Without Nannies Who Care, I would be forced to leave my job which has been the job of my dreams and is financing great things for my family’s future.
Each of the women who care for my son are honest, kind, patient, and love children! Sometimes, we are assigned women who have cared for my son before and sometimes, we meet new nannies. Regardless, the staff at Nannies Who Care are quick, responsive and their nannies are truly priceless.

I just wanted you to know how much we have appreciated your service. It has really been wonderful for us. It is hard to find part-time child care and your service has been great. We really love Janet and her sister, Rita. They are both great with the kids. I wanted you to know so you could use me on your testimonial page.

I just wanted to let you know we had a great week with Linda. The girls loved her. She was fun and energetic. She provided lots of things for them to do. It was a wonderful trip for the girls. Thanks for the great service!
I wanted to thank you for your outstanding selection of Terry Guild to watch my special needs grandson last Saturday evening. Terry was terrific and I was able to attend my friend’s wedding without worrying about Nicholas being in good hands.
We have been delighted to have her as a part of our extended family so much so that I kept her employed full time when I recently lost my job and transitioned to a new company. We do have a few backup people through personal contacts but no one holds a candle to Kelly. I have told numerous people both within Florida and throughout my travels for work that if they need a nanny you are the one to call. Thank you for providing our family with such an outstanding resource – I have the utmost confidence in referring you to anyone.

Debbie – Thank you very much for matching us up with Gigi. We loved having her as part of our family for the past 2+ years, and we will continue to have Gigi watch our kids for date nights. You provided an invaluable service to us. Thank you.

Thank you for helping me out in the last minute! Roswita was great, she is European like me, so we got along really well, and my son loved her, she even let him keep a book as a gift. I had a great Valentine’s day with my sweetie, which I could not have had without your help. Thank you so very much!!! I am sure I will be requesting her again, if she is available in the future.

I just wanted to send a personal thank you for your agency’s services. I didn’t know what I was going to do when my mom, who watches my daughter, was going out of town. I remembered seeing your name somewhere and registered. Jayne was wonderful for my daughter and I felt comfortable having her as my temporary nanny. When I need help again I will definitely think of Nannies Who Care. If you want to send me some brochures for us to put out at the office, it is ok with me. Sorry that it took me so long to send this. Again, thank you.

We couldn’t have been happier with Karla. She was great with the kids, patient with one who was miserable, and willing to stay later than expected without complaint. I even got a ‘thank you’ e-mail from one of our guests who said she wouldn’t have been able to attend/enjoy herself without the nanny. Based on your nanny’s performance, we are recommending your service to everyone. In fact, my daughter will be calling you for services during her wedding reception on Sept 24th. Thanks so much for living up to your name! …
My husband, 9 month old son, and myself recently visited Clearwater Beach, Florida. We used your services for the first time, and were beyond satisfied with everything. Jayne came to our condo to take care of our son for a few hours. As soon as we met her, we could tell that she was great with kids, and a very trusting individual. Although we love our son with all of our hearts, it was so nice to get some time for the two of us. We think that your business is an excellent idea, and look forward to using it in the future. Thank you and Jayne for giving us even more memories to add to our amazing trip to Clearwater Beach.
As a nanny I know the needs of the family and children come first. Nannies Who Care not only met the needs of the family she placed me with, but mine as well. Debbie Brown took into account my needs and wants and exceeded my expectations. I was placed with a loving family caring for an infant, close to my home, and with a flexible full time schedule. I would highly recommend Nannies Who Care as the agency of choice. I know I will be with this family for many years to come. Thank you Debbie for caring just as much about me as the families and children you represent. Your attention to detail and professionalism is impressive!
I simply wanted to say how pleased I have been with the nannies your service has provided for our family. Especially Tori and April. They are professional, reliable, and punctual. Both go above and beyond in caring for the children and it’s obvious when I return home that the kids have played and learned and enjoyed their time with these ladies.
