"I can't say enough about how wonderful this team have been to work with. I needed a new nanny on short notice and they sent me qualified candidates who were by far the most impressive I saw from any other agency or referral.  Efficient, professional, accommodating and they delivered, you can't ask for more than that.  I would not hesitate to recommend them and they are head and shoulders above other agencies I worked with.
Great job!"

"I am so happy to have found Brian at Lifeworx.. After searching through many agencies for a nannying job I was just about to give up until he set me up on my first interview with a family and I got the job. It was exactly what I was looking for! I'm still employed at this job a year later .. I just called him 3 days ago telling him I had a free day and I was looking for something and again went on my first interview and found JUST what I was looking for. He responds quick and is very personable. Would recommend Lifeworx to anyone!"

Nearly seven years ago, we got our nanny - Derly - through LifeWorx. At the time I was pregnant with our second child and had a 5 yo. Today, I have an 12 yo daughter and a 6 yo son - and Derly has been an incredible part of raising them to become such wonderful children. She brings warmth, caring, and support. She has taught them to be great people - and I am always amazed at the special way she has of helping them to learn manners, eat well, do their homework, sports - all with a smile and so much love. In turn, they love her back completely and listen to her...more than they listen to us!! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since she raised two remarkable sons Of her own who now attend college. Thank you LifeWorx for bringing this wonderful person into our lives. She was - and will always be - a second parent to our children. I know you will pair her with a new, special family who will get you experience her love and caring as they raise their children
