Nannies as Needed
"Dear Margie, I am writing to notify you that our family will be moving to Maine in mid December. I cannot tell you how invaluable Nannies As Needed has been for our family. Words cannot really express the amount of anxiety and stress you consistently and at times truly miraculously washed away. You never let us down. I am truly spoiled as I know I cannot even begin to find a comparable service in our location. Your sitters were professional but your personal touch and availability was spectacular. We will miss you as we feel like you have been part of our family for the last 7 years. As a working mom with a husband who travels you have truly provided us the ability to fulfill a life of career and family. With regret, if you could please cancel any reoccurring membership fees, etc. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime. Thank you again for helping our family."

"I just wanted to tell you how amazing Sharon was last Tuesday. My son, who normally cries with all sitters, was all smiles when I came home. My kids took to Sharon immediately. It was the first time in a long time when I left the house feeling really good about a babysitter."

- Kendra, Darien, CT

"First of all, THANK YOU! I am very pleased indeed with my first experience with Nannies As Needed and look forward to a continuing relationship. Second, Tomeka was an absolute joy. Needless to say, I was nervous about leaving my son, but Tomeka came through my door with the most beautiful and infectious smile I've ever seen at 8 o'clock in the morning. I left her with my instructions and did not have a worry for the rest of the day. She made my son lunch, cleaned the dishes and put them away. I can't get my husband to do that! So again, thank you! While I hope my son never gets sick again, I am comforted by the fact that I have a trustworthy and reliable service upon which to call. We will call you soon for a date night too!"

- Colleen, Norwalk, CT

"I wanted to touch base and let you know how pleased we were with Maxine. I still can't believe she travelled so far to help, but we are so happy she did! The girls had such a great time, and she was so communicative with me the whole time we were out. We look forward to using both you and Maxine next time we are in Connecticut! Thanks so much for everything!"

"I am writing in earnest on Katie's behalf. She has turned out to be the greatest babysitter we have ever had. She exemplifies the most important characteristics that are coveted in a person that comes into your home and cares for your beloved little ones. Besides being caring, loving, gentle and kind, she is trustworthy, hardworking, thoughtful, positive and energetic. She creates a happy atmosphere by conjuring (up) projects of all types: Baking, art, games and dolls. She revels in the joy of the project even if it makes a mess...which she cleans up without complaint. She has blended into the family and her company is enjoyed by all of us. We consider her a part of our family now, and we noticed a huge void when she was away on her trip. We all look forward to the days she is here. The girls jump for joy every Thursday morning and greet her with squeals, hugs and kisses. She is truly amazing! "

"Margie- Thank you so much for everything today. Your attention to the last minute fire drill is so appreciated. Angie is fantastic. My baby was so happy when I got home! "

- Rita, Stamford, CT

"Margie, She sounds great! I can't wait to meet her. Thank you so much for working so hard to pair us together for tomorrow. Like I said, I think your company you have here is an incredible concept. So far the experience has been great. I look forward to using your service in the near future under less stressful times. I know my husband and I would like to go to a movie or have a simple date soon. Thank you again. "

"Nannies As Needed, Margie, most especially, has provided the nicest and most considerate sitters that I have met. Nannies As Needed always comes through for me whether it be last minute or scheduled, and I have never been disappointed with the quality and integrity of any of the sitters. My daughter has loved each sitter that has come to care for her. I highly recommend Margie and her wonderful staff! "

- Rana, Weston, CT

"I am writing this with tears of joy welling in my eyes. I absolutely must thank you, thank you, thank you from the depths of my heart for providing us with the most amazing nanny today. After experiencing someone who put the lives of my children in danger, I was really nervous as to who would arrive at my door from the service I found on the internet. You really do a wonderful job! [Tomeka is a true gem!" I cannot tell you how wonderful it feels to have peace of mind knowing my children are well cared for. Thank you!! "

Testimonials of Sitters

"When I began graduate school, I was very concerned about expenses. I had been a nanny throughout college, but never found a job that was flexible enough for my ever changing schedule. Nannies As Needed was truly a Godsend for me. I was able to work on a flexible basis and earn enough money for books, rent, and tuition. I have been working for Nannies As Needed for two years now, and the NAN staff has truly become like a second family for me."

- Kelly D., New Haven

"In the spring of 2008. With my daughter enrolling in college, I decided to supplement my income. After much though, I chose to search for caregiver opportunities. After two months of researching my options, I found Nannies As Needed. I was immediately impressed by their professionalism and the fact that they actually pair each caregiver's skills and personality to the needs of each family. Nearly one year later, I have several families who ask for me and I have created lasting bonds with many of the children I care for. I truly enjoy my position with Nannies As Needed. It has been a wonderful experience I hope to continue for many years to come."

- Rexanne K-W., Trumbull

"I have been with Nannies As Needed for four years and can honestly say it is a great company to work for. You can earn great money while working around your own unique schedule. The jobs are fun, convenient and flexible. The friendly office staff handles all the details of your job and they always send you to safe homes. I have referred many of my friends to work for Nannies As Needed and they have enjoyed the experience as much as I have."

- Anisha M., Bridgeport
