"After losing our nanny of 2.5 years, I attempted to find a new nanny using media, the internet (including two other nanny listing sites), and other personal resources. Yours by far was the easiest and most successful method. I registered on Wednesday night, and was interviewing someone from your site on Thursday evening, and she started with us on Monday. My children love her, as we do, too Thank you so very much for a great website, and will return if we ever need another nanny."
"After having much disappointment using a handful of Toronto, Mississauga and Thornhill nanny agencies, I bit the bullet and called Execu-Nannies. I was reluctant, as the thought of forking out thousands of dollars to yet another agency, only to have my hopes dashed again in the quest of finding a nanny, ANY nanny, who would last more than a day, was maddening.
I had a host of nannies in our home to care for our 3 children, and many of them only lasted an hour. The biggest problem was communication. I quickly learned that many of these women, while nodding and smiling, were trying to convey to me that they understood my instructions and would do them willingly...with a smile. Shorlty thereafter, I would see that I was not understood, but cordially "yessed" to please. It became a nanny mill in my home. Agency after agency would send me nanny after nanny, and each time I would greet them with great anticipation and excitement, thinking "yes, this time they got it right." They understood my needs and qualifications and were sending me their best candidates. Never happened. By the end of it all, I was coaching them.
So we paid our fee to Execu-Nannies feeling very confident that were were finally going to get what we paid for. And we did.
Sharon Taylor and her team listened, were thoughtful, conscientious and very careful about who they sent to us. But before any of that happened, I learned of the lengthy and detailed screening process they go through not just to find the right candidate for your the family, but that they interview their nannies several times and train them in basic nannying. They are given several questionnaires and then interviewed for consistency on a multitude of levels. Then, they are informed in a very detailed fashion about the family ensuring the fit is right. They scrutinzed their nanny choices for us very carefully before calling us with a few great candidates for us to meet.
After having gone through the pain and hardship of all kinds of nanny agencies, some big and some small, interviewing one nanny after the other, and a plethora of dissappoinments, it was money well spent. I was given peace of mind by everyone at Execu-Nannies. They actually heard me and understood me!
And it didn't end there. They check in with us every once in a while to see how things are going. Thank You EVERYONE."

"Scott and I and the kids are very happy and excited to have Sylvia join our family. The process to find her was made easy by your team. We appreciated your thorough interview process, the ongoing support and communication, and of course, the baby-sitting service that you provided. We look forward to our newest adventure with Sylvia and thank you for making this possible!"
- Paula and Scott R.
"Thank you for all of your help these past few years. You've brought peace of mind to our household - and as you know for a working mom that's priceless."
- Jennifer and Drew W.
"I just want to say how greatful I am to you. I really like my job and the family. It was all possible because of the agency so I just want to say thank you again."
"I want to express my appreciation for all the great work you did over the past couple of weeks to source a babysitter/housekeeper for our family. Your agency is the most profesional and detail-oriented of all that we dealt with. Your candidate profiles are very comprehensive. We enjoyed meeting the candidates that you recommended and we appreciated how quickly you responded to our needs."
- Debbie H.
"I truly believe that a great deal of the success we enjoyed with Norma was due to the efforts of your agency and your detailed attention to meeting the needs of both employer and employee. It is because of this that I have referred you to three of my friends over the past 2.5 years, all of whom have hired one of your candidates."
- Cindy L.
"You asked insightful questions regarding my needs, were empathetic to my concerns, offered some constructive advice regarding my prioritizing of nanny characteristics and faxed to me immediately after the call an informative marketing package on your organization that said to me "we're professional, experienced and thorough." This immediately boosted my confidence in nanny recruiting and gave me hope that I would find an acceptable candidate to care for my only child and be a welcome member of our family.
Within 24 hours of our initial discussion, I recveived a resume of a very good candidate; within less than 4 weeks, I received a total of 8 resumes of candidates whom I would rate as very good to excellent with all candidates meeting 85% plus of my wish list.
Your staff was very diligent with follow-up regarding interview appointments and candidate feedback.
I had to write to you and congratulate you on a well run business. I have no hesitation referring Execu-Nannies to family, friends and business colleagues. I wish you and your team continued success."
"Thank you for your hard work. We will continue to recommend you to our friends and colleagues as the best, and most professional agency operating in Toronto and we will call you the next time we have to go through one of these agonizing changes."

"This letter is to thank you and your exceptional staff for everything you have done in solving my family's recent employment needs. From my initial telephone contact with you a short while ago, I have been increasingly impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of your organiziation. At first, my wife and I were skeptical to the role of a placement agency, trying to identify the value being added. I am happy to relay to any prospective parents that the combination of accurate outlining of your services and fees, the itemized nanny profile sheets and finally the contract and job profile all exceeded our expectations. This also greatly eased our minds as to the quality of both the candidate and of our representation to the candidate.
We are ecstatic with our new nanny and our kids are glowing and happy. My wife and I will happily join your reference list."
- Mark T.
"Thank you for all your help. It's always difficult having someone else help you with your own baby, but we really hope Elizabeth will enjoy her stay with us. We'll definitely keep in touch."
- Linda T.
"I must express my pleasure with both your service and the caliber of candidates that were put forward. I certainly would feel confident leaving my child with any one of the women presented. Should I need a nanny in the future, I will definitely contact you again. The professionalism and dedication of your company is obvious and refreshing."
- Deborah M.
"Through our experience dealing with your agency, we came to have confidence that you do indeed carefully screen your nanny referrals and that you invest signficant time in attempting to match the candidate to the employer. In particular, the ability of your agency to fax to us extensive background information about each candidate gave Kathy and I an opportunity to narrow down the candidates we were interested to meet and gave us greater assurance that we knew the background of each candidate. I would have no hesitation recommending your agency to any of my colleagues."
- John K.
"I would like to express my sincere thanks to the outstanding job you did for me in helping me find and choose a nanny. I presented you with some challenges and your team went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me in a limited time frame. At all times your team was professional and very understanding of my needs and circumstances.
As you know, I am a repeat client for your agency. I was extremely impressed with your services three years ago when you helped me find my first nanny. Over the years I have passed along your name to many colleagues who have been faced with the problem of finding a great nanny in a fairly short time frame. Businesses such as yours grow on reputation of outstanding service and I am glad to assist you in your growth in my own small way."
- Michelle W.
"Thanks so much for your help. Your service was great and professional (especially compared to other agencies in the same business). We are looking forward to welcoming Louise and hope to have a long happy relationship with her."
"Thank you very much for your kind and professional attention to our search. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others and will certainly seek your assistance in our next search."
- Donna S.
"Just a short note to thank you for all the help you have given in my nanny selection process. Execu-Nannies is certainly one of the most professional employment agencies I have ever dealt with. I feel I must give you my compliments of your thoroughness in screening potential applicants. Hopefully I won't have to bother you too soon. But if I ever need help to find a nanny again, I'll know who to call!"
- Ruth B.
"Both my wife and I were heavily involved in the selection process, and in fact during a period of 2 months we worked with a total of 5 agencies!
Without a doubt, Execu-Nannies was the most conscientious, well organized, professional and competent organization as compared with any other agency, by far!
You are the only agency that appears to conduct professional interviews of the candidates prior to recommending them, carefully sends the information over to the client, and carefully discusses the applicant prior to the interview. Your follow up is excellent, and your handbooks and other articles are also very useful and reflect the professionalism of your organization.
Both Janette and I also felt that you were personally best able to understand our needs, and find the most appropriate candidates for us - with Execu-Nannies it was truly a "selection" process, as opposed to "find out who ever is available and send them over" (which is an approach followed by most of the other agencies that we dealt with)."
- Michael D.
"I would like to take this time to thank you for your assistance. The change of a nanny in our household is dramatic, and your firm, I found, has one of the most professional and caring outlooks, unlike any other domestic agency.
You were able to focus on my concerns, and only advise me the candidate who would fit into our family. I appreciate the time that this has taken.
I can assure you, Execu-Nannies will be the first on my list to phone if ever I require a new nanny."
- Christine K.
"I want to thank you for your help in sourcing Rhonda for us, she seems like a wonderful person and very capable. We are quite confident that both of our boys, as well as Eric and I, will be pleased to have her with us. Your agency has been "head and shoulders" above any others that I have dealt with in the past and I will be recommending you to any friends who are looking for help."
