Why Use a Local Nanny Agency?
One word of advice: use a local agency. Why? Because we know who’s who around here. Kensington is locally owned and operated right here in South Florida.
And, because we’re local, we pre-interview and select most candidates in person. Also, we don’t rely on a database to tell us who to choose for you. We do our work the good ‘ole fashioned way.
Using a nanny agency is a safer alternative when searching for a professional nanny to care for your children. Kensington nannies are known and trusted. And candidates are thoroughly investigated before being matched to your family.
