I contacted Tinies with an urgent request for a nanny. Not having used a nanny agency or Tinies before, I was slightly aprehensive about what to expect, but Tinies were helpful, friendly, and professional from the word go. The nanny arrived on our doorstep two days later, and my daughter (14 months) and I were immediately put at ease. I can't recommend Tinies enough.
