Job Opportunities

Houston Nanny, the temporary services branch of Morningside Nannies helps parents find temporary, back-up, short-term, part-time and summer childcare. Our nannies and babysitters make work with families for a few hours one day or for up to a three month assignment.

Our nannies and sitters provide:

One-Time Care

We receive both same day and future date childcare requests. All childcare requests have at least a four hour minimum of care. Even if the family needs only two hours of coverage, our caregivers are paid for a minimum of four hours.


We receive childcare requests for coverage during school breaks and when parents experience a gap in their regular childcare coverage. Short-term assignments may last from two days to three months.


We receive childcare requests for temporary childcare. Temporary assignments may last from a few days to three months. Parents may request temporary care when their typical childcare arrangements fall through, when they are traveling to Houston or when there is a gap in their childcare coverage.

Back-Up Care

We receive both same day and future requests for back-up childcare. Our back-up childcare providers supplement parent’s ongoing childcare arrangements. Our back-up caregivers may provide care if a caregiver is sick or on vacation or otherwise unavailable to provide care.

Before and Afterschool Care

We receive requests for before and after school coverage. Typically parents request caregivers for one to two hours before school and two to four hours after school. Our caregivers may also be responsible for transporting children to and from school.

Sick Child Care

We receive requests for same day sick child care. Children who are mildly ill and as a result can’t attend daycare may require care in the comfort of their own home. Our caregivers care for children with mild fevers and common childhood ailments like ear infections and viral illnesses.

Newborn Care

We receive requests for newborn care specialists who will work 12 or 24 hour shifts providing care for newborns. Newborn care specialists must have extensive experience caring for newborns and some have specialized training.

Overnight Care

We receive requests for overnight care from parents who need to travel for work or pleasure. Our nannies and sitters may spend one night or more caring for the family’s children in their private home.

Summer Nannies

We receive requests for summer nannies. Parents begin making their summer childcare arrangements in March and April. College students, teachers and others available for summer employment should apply as soon as possible to be sure they’re files are activated prior to when parents begin seeking seasonal care.
