B.J. – 10/2013

I am a professional nanny, trained in England at Norland Nursery Training College, and with more than 25 years experience. I have worked internationally & been legally residing in the US for many years. Hometown Nannies has been by far the most professional & excellent agency I have come across in the US. ~ Their whole approach to the application process, checking my references, their communication with me, offering very appropriate positions to me for consideration, & their communications with my former employers, & follow up with me, even years after our initial contact, have been very, very impressive. Their attitude and approach have always been respectful, polite & very friendly. I would highly recommend them based on these experiences. (I would have to say that the lady who gave them one star may have spoken with an employee no longer part of the agency perhaps. ~ This didn't sound remotely like any of the interactions I have had with the agency over many years. Additionally ~ The reason agencies generally do not give out contact numbers for nannies prior to a client registering with the agency, (as I understand it), is that there would be little reason for the client to then go through the agency if they had already contacted someone they wished to hire, prior to signing with the agency, & if they wanted to avoid the fees. Additionally, it would be easy to claim that the nanny was also registered with another agency they were using, and thus avoid the fees in this way. Of course most people would not take advantage of an agency in this way, one hopes, but this is just basic good business practice. It also protects the nannies from unscrupulous callers posing as prospective employers... sadly such things must be considered. Personally I would never work with an agency who gave out numbers to unregistered callers!)

I could not be happier with the family and children Jayne has found for me. Jayne is a wonderful match maker, doing her best to match nannies and families/kids well. She really pays attention to all personality types and the nannies capabilities. My job is going great and I love the girls I take care of and the parents are great people as well. Thank you so much, Jayne, and it is no mere coincidence that you have been in business for so many years. Congratulations for being a great professional.

I first heard about Jayne Ehrlich thru her nanny agency Malibu Mamas when I was nannying in Los Angeles about 24 years ago. I was delighted to find her in Westport when I moved to Connecticut about 14 years ago. Jayne found me jobs over those years and recently found me the perfect family where I hope to work, until I retire!

M.C. – Norwalk, CT – 6/2010

Hometown Nannies+ has become a high priority in my life. I applied for a nanny job with them 10 years ago. I met the E family who have become a part of my family now too, and I have been with them for 8 ½ years. Watching their children from toddlers, growing to teenagers. I am very thankful for Hometown Nannies. They have kept in touch with both myself and with the E family, giving me updates and feedback left by the E family. I have recommended friends who are also happy and very satisfield. I recommend Hometown Nannies to any person who is looking for a nanny job! Thank you Jayne for your unconditional support that you have provided me!!

Hi Lynn,
I can't thank you enough. Thank you so much they are great people and i can wait to start working for them. I'm so excited. Well I will keep in touch with you and let you know how things go. Also thank you for keeping me in mind for part-time babysitting.

Thanks,
E.F.

A. – 3/2007

Joy,

First, please forgive me for the delay of responding to your offer, I have been unable to access my email the last couple of days.

I thank you for taking the time before your trip to meet with me again. It was helpful for me to meet your husband and see the kids again. I believe you are very blessed and have a wonderful family.

I would like to accept your offer to come and work for your family. I feel good about being a right fit for each other and I look forward to working together as a team.

Regarding the weekly salary, it is a bit lower than I had hoped for, so I was wondering if you would be willing to consider contributing to a Health Saving Account (HSA) on a monthly basis for me. Being I only have major medical coverage and pay for all other medical out of my own pocket this would be reassuring for me in the future.

The early start date that we talked about (middle of May) would be of interest to me but am flexible to your needs.

I also want to make use that Jayne at Hometown Nannies is aware of the great job that Jennifer did in placing us together. I felt her insight into the details of what I was looking for in a family was right on when she called to tell me she found a great family for me. Thank you Jennifer.

Joy, I hope you are enjoying your trip and look forward to talking to you further when you arrive back home.

Y. – 2/2012

Hi Jayne - Just wanted to let you know that today was Edna's last day with us. She is single­handedly the best babysitter we've had. My girls are pretty malleable, but they miss Edna a lot. She was everything her references told me she would be - super attentive with the kids, playing with them, doing projects with them, helping with homework. She kept the house in perfect order and did a whole bunch of things I did not even ask her to do (laundry, putting our clothes away(!) ... and helping me pack for our move to Old Greenwich!). But really, I was overwhelmingly happy with hmv she was with the kids, and I have never seen them so happy with a babysitter. They talk about her all the time. Anyways, I wanted to let you know. Thank you for sending Edna to us - truly the best care provider we've had. It's ironic that the best one is one we only needed for 3 months. Thanks for helping us all these years.

Do you know whether the agency (Malibu mamas, Inc.) is still in business and, if so, whether their standards are as high as they once were? We found a wonderful long-term nanny through the agency about 8 years ago, and are embarking on another search, and looking for a great agency. Thanks very much for your help.

RF - Old Lyme, CT

J.M. – Katonah, NY – 6/2010

Working with L was wonderful. I'd been trying to find a nanny on my own, but with juggling a toddler and a newborn on sleepless nights, it felt so much better to hand the job over to her. She was incredibly personable, warm and efficient. Most importantly, she really listened to my needs AND then kept them in mind when finding candidates. I quickly said, If you've met her, L, and you think she's a good match, then I'll meet her, too. Using an agency is a financial investment in your family, and with L in my court, I didn't hesitate to make that investment.
JM - Katonah, NY

K.G. – NYC – 3/2010

I have known Hometown Nannies for 5 years and I can tell you that Jayne is a stand-up woman, a no-nonsense woman who plays by the rules; she is a mom, she is decent and follows through as all agencies should. Every chance I get, I advise my clients about Jayne Ehrlich (Hometown) because she is really awesome. You have a great agency in Jayne, I know that she will send you only people that she has checked out thoroughly.
KG - NYC

Y.- 3/2010

I am going to take the liberty of saying this to you because I know how important it is for all MOMS to find great caregiving in any form, be that a baby nurse, a nanny, a babysitter, a housekeeper, whatever! They trust that these agencies are people who are legitimate and follow through in all they say they do especially when it comes to people they are sending in to a client's home to care for their precious babies.

Liz,

I just wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work trying to find us a nanny.   Ultimately, my husband and I decided that having a nanny in our home was not the childcare experience we were looking for.  However, it is no reflection on you or the candidates you were sending over to us.  We loved working with you, and I will continue to refer Hometown Nannies to other moms who are looking for childcare. 

Attached is new picture of Will.  Thanks again.

"Still to this day I am forever grateful to you for finding us 'P', who is still with us!Can you believe it? It was a match made in heaven, thanks to you. I can't thank you enough for finding us Peggy!We have nothing but wonderful things to say about her.”

C.R. – Weston, CT

Hometown Nannies provided us with a wonderful caregiver for our infant son. She has been so responsive to his needs and creative with his waking time. Thanks Hometown Nannies for such a great nanny!

V.D. – Rowayton, CT

I am so happy we decided to work with Hometown Nannies to meet our childcare needed. The nanny you found for us is so much more than we had ever expected or hoped for. Your service is wonderful.

M.Z. – Wilton, CT

For me, it was not easy to find help that would support the needs of my daughter. When I explained my circumstances to Jayne it was a no brainier! Jayne figures it out and makes it happen. She is a dynamo and a total powerhouse! Hometown Nannies is truly in a class by themselves.
