Three Things you Should Discuss with your New Nanny

Samantha C.

She has been a partner in not only making sure my daughter grows up safe and healthy, but also polite, kind, and educated from an early age. I am so fortunate to have found Maria with Diamond’s help, as my life could not be as it is without her."

"Maria hasn’t simply joined our family, she has grown up with it, and is fundamental to it. 

Wooley Family

She is always taking the kids to the parks to do outdoor activities and gets the two older boys to school on time. Sheila is the best cook ever she can make homemade dumplings, wontons, stir fry, spaghetti, homemade garlic lemon chicken fingers and the list goes on. 

"Sheila has the most positive, resilient and heart felt personality. Sheila is an early riser and every morning she is happy and upbeat and 100% reliable.

Newhook Family

As first time parents we look to Brenda for guidance, as she is a mom and has raised many other babies. She’s punctual, reliable, trustworthy and helps with many household tasks such as cooking and cleaning. 

"In just a few short months Brenda has become an integral part of our family and we couldn’t be happier! Her beautiful spirit and positive attitude reassured us we made the right decision.
