When you're looking for someone to help take care of your kids, whether to babysit for a night or a long-term nanny arrangement, you want someone you can trust.
However, it can be daunting to narrow down an application pool to find the best person for your needs—that’s where local company “Mom’s Best Friend” comes in handy.
Lauralee Alcayde is her family's oldest child and has been babysitting most of her life. She decided being a nanny while she's in college would be right up her alley.
The Woods family needed help with their kids while they were at work. They used Mom's Best Friend to help them quickly locate someone who would get along with their kids and could be trusted.
"It's been four or five weeks, it seems like forever,” Alcayde said. “We're already very much in love with each other I'd like to think."
Hiring Alcayde required a 10-step screening process, including background and reference checks. It's a process the company has worked to perfect.
