Hire Temp Care

How it Works

1. Register Your Family with Morningside Nannies »

2. Request Childcare

3. Relax! A Care Provider is on the Way

Whether you need childcare for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks or more, we believe that all children deserve quality childcare all of the time. Through our award-winning nanny placement agency, Morningside Nannies, we provide parents with prescreened, qualified and well-referenced nannies and babysitters who are committed to providing the highest quality short-term childcare in Houston.

All of our temporary caregivers complete a lengthy employment application and  undergo a comprehensive pre-employment screening process that includes an in-person interview in our Houston office, a childcare safety and knowledge assessment, a multi-state criminal records search, a Harris County and surrounding counties criminal records search and a motor vehicle driving record review.

At minimum, all of our temporary nannies and sitters must:

  • Have two years of verifiable, professional childcare experience
  • Have two verifiable, professional childcare references
  • Be CPR certified
  • Be at least 19 years of age
  • Have a high school diploma or GED
  • Be able to speak, read and write English fluently
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Have a valid U.S. driver’s license and a good driving record
  • Have their own vehicle and current automobile insurance
  • Have a valid Social Security Card
  • Be able to legally accept employment in the U.S.

One-Time Care

Our dedicated team of temporary nannies and sitters is prescreened, qualified and ready to accept caregiving positions in a moment’s notice. Schedule an experienced nanny or sitter in advance or request same day coverage.


Our short-term childcare nannies and sitters are experienced, well-referenced and ready to accept positions with families that last for a few days to a few months. Schedule a short-term nanny or babysitter during school breaks, while you’re traveling or to fill any upcoming gaps in your current childcare coverage.


Our temporary nannies and sitters specialize in providing temporary care and are available to take on positions lasting up to three months. Some temporary nannies and sitters are able to convert to providing full-time care should require ongoing in-home childcare services.

Back-Up Care

Our dedicated team of back-up nannies and sitters is able to step in and provide childcare when your regular childcare arrangements fall through. Hire a back-up nanny or sitter to provide care for your mildly ill child, to pinch hit for your daycare provider or nanny when they’re sick or unable to work and or to provide childcare when your regular provider is on vacation.        

Before and Afterschool Care

Our diverse group of caregivers accepts a variety of in-home childcare positions, including those that require before and after school childcare coverage. Hire a reliable nanny or sitter to get your children off to school in the morning and to meet them at the bus or pick them up from school and care for them until you return home.

Sick Child Care

Our nannies and caregivers are willing and able to care for mildly ill children, even when traditional providers won’t.  Children with common childhood viral and bacterial illnesses, such as coxsackie and ear infections, can benefit from being cared for by a childcare professional in the comfort of their own home.

Newborn Care

Our network of newborn care specialists is highly referenced and has extensive experience caring for newborns. They typically care exclusively for newborns and are hired to work 12 or 24-hour shifts, but can work with you to accommodate a suitable schedule. We also have newborn care specialists with experience caring for multiples.

Overnight Care

Our veteran caregivers are able to provide overnight care for your children while you travel or are away from home. Whether you are away from home for personal or professional reasons, our prescreened and qualified nannies and sitters are able to care for your children while you are away.

Summer Nannies

Our experienced summer caregivers include professional nannies, teachers and college students and are seeking seasonal employment during the summer camp. Create a customized summer schedule for your children in partnership with one of our summer nannies or sitters.
