We all know finding the perfect nanny can be very stressful. We recently had to embark on this journey, and hired Optimum to help us. Janet is the owner and has an amazing amount of information and resources that have helped us in finding a terrific nanny. It was a journey indeed, but every step of the way Janet was there. Never did I feel she wasn’t working her hardest to help us. She was very professional, and compassionate. I would highly recommend Janet to any family looking for a nanny.

I am very fortunate to have found Janet and Optimum Nannies and Homecare. Janet found us our current nanny who has been with us since 2007. I was 8 months pregnant with a 3 year old running around when we decided it was time to get some help. By hiring Janet’s agency, it took the stress off sifting through resumes, and endless interviewing. She met with us, found out exactly what our needs and then began searching for the perfect candidate. After her extensive search, Janet narrowed things down and sent us 3 ideal nannies to interview. From there, we found the perfect fit for our family. Janet also took care of all the reference and criminal checks, and helped us register/prepare the government paperwork necessary when you employ someone. If you’re looking for a nanny placement agency with someone who goes the extra mile, I highly recommend Janet as a great resource !

I have known Janet for years and she has always helped me find work. She is resourceful, helpful and very professional. She doesn’t just place her nannies in positions, she cares about them and stays in touch to make sure things are going well. I think of Janet as a friend 🙂 Optimum is the agency I choose when I’m looking for work. I highly recommend Janet and her agency!
Janet has been most wonderful at connecting me with an employer who just seemed to be a great match! I was employed with a terrific family for five years and am confident that there will be another family that I can provide the best care for. Optimum has been very helpful and professional in helping me find employment that is more than satisfactory for everyone involved.
Charlotte is amazing. She seems to have a natural intuitive instinct with children. She is creative, animated, safety conscious and has unending patience-obviously needed with 4 children under the age of 7. Thank you again for everything
We have used Optimum to find nannies and nanny housekeepers for our family for the past 12 years. As our family grows and changes so do our needs. You seem to understand this process very well. There is obviously something to be said for “experience in the industry”.
My husband and I are new to this country. Initially the process of finding a household manager was very daunting. We started to hear wonderful things about your agency from neighbours and work colleagues. Thank goodness we found Optimum. Your prompt and professional services have been much appreciated.
I wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how pleased we have been with your services. In the past 5 years we have used many agencies and it has become very clear that Optimum stands head and shoulders above the rest. Your prompt, professional and considerate service is much appreciated.
Tamara is doing very well. She is wonderful with the kids and is an amazing housekeeper (better than me) Thank you for your continued support and follow up. Its reassuring to know that your professional service continues beyond the placement.
Thanks for your hard work. It is amazing that we only had to interview one person. You really were able to pin point our needs and send the best candidate. This process has saved us a lot of time and hassle. I am sure Claire will fit into out family very well.
