What They're Saying

"When John and I realized we needed to hire a nanny, I knew right away I would be calling Amy from East Wind Nannies. I had been on the other side of the interviewing table just a few years prior and was placed by Amy to work as a nanny for an adorable little girl. Prior to working with East Wind Nannies I had been teaching Kindergarten for several years and earned my M.Ed. Quite honestly I was surprised she was so strict with the interview process. Even with all my certifications, experience, and education, she said she would not be able to re-schedule my interview when I called to tell her my electric was out the very morning of my interview. I did manage to arrive on time and was later placed with a family who I'm still in contact with today. It was for this reason I knew I wanted to use East Wind Nannies when we were ready to hire a nanny of our own. I wanted someone who was dependable, educated, and loving. Amy gave me her honest opinion of which nanny she thought would be able to meet our needs and fit our family. I am so grateful for her honesty and integrity. Our nanny is vibrant, kind, and on time! I would not hesitate to work with Amy again."
