What do our former clients have to say?
"...Let me first say that I am a first time mother. During my pregnancy, my husband and I decided that when I returned to work our baby would attend daycare. When our little boy arrived, not only were we nowhere near the top of the wait list of our daycare, but we were also unprepared to let our little baby leave the safety of his own home. Overwhelmed by the newness of motherhood, and having failed to look into the possibility of a nanny during my pregnancy, I came to Personally Paired in a state of panic. I then signed up for the Custom Search Program...
Immediately, their professionalism and thoroughness calmed my nerves. They took an extensive survey of our needs and wants and provided us with several very well qualified applicants.
We interviewed three nannies, and all seemed very competent, and one seemed like a dream come true.
Our nanny has now taken care of our son for three months and we could not be happier. She is not only a wonderful nanny to our son, but she is also a great counselor to new time parents. I cannot imagine the last few months without her, and I cannot thank Personally Paired enough for connecting us with our nanny..."

"...Trying to find childcare that felt 'right' seemed almost impossible for me. I went through maternity leave hoping that at some point I would be able to face the decision of who would take care of my first son. Time passed and I found the decision more and more difficult. I visited childcare centers and family daycares and everything felt like a compromise.
When I started working with Personally Paired through their Custom Search Program all of a sudden it felt like everything was going to work out. Jessica and her team were very quick to match our profile with resumes. After interviewing the candidates, we selected the nanny who was an absolutely perfect fit.
We have been thrilled with her approach and qualifications. It is still hard to leave our son, but not because we are worried about his care. I would recommend Personally Paired to anyone I know who wants personalized service you cannot get through on-line searches..."
- Ellen S. (parent)
"...I found Personally Paired through the strong recommendation of a friend of mine who recently hired a nanny through the service. She was incredibly impressed and I have to say I am as well. I had done some nanny searching on my own, including through a website for a mother’s association I am a member of (where there are tons of personal referrals from mothers), and I haven’t found nearly the quality I received in the nannies from the Custom Search Program from Personally Paired...
...I don’t know how they do it, but they are all really solid folks. Jessica is also a pleasure to work with – extremely responsive and able to screen candidates very well for our specific family situation/work set-up..."
- Alicia P. (parent)
"As a new mom, the last thing I wanted to do was spend my entire maternity leave searching for a nanny. Luckily, I found Personally Paired and they did the work for me. My husband and I were very pleased with their professionalism and diligence in finding the right fit for our family. We highly recommend using them for your childcare needs."
- Ashley T. (parent)
"...I can't begin to thank Personally Paired enough for connecting us with our wonderful nanny! I just couldn't have imagined going through the process without them! Before we contacted them we tried to do the search by ourselves and it was way too overwhelming and we honestly didn't know where to start. A friend recommended Personally Paired and we are so glad that we listened because we just couldn't be happier! As working parents it's hard enough leaving your children each day but to know that they are well taken care of is something that we are so grateful for!"
- Marie M. (parent)
"…I had been in the market for some occasional sitters for some time but found myself either procrastinating on the chore or frustrated with the process (or both!) I am SO glad I found Personally Paired because I went from having a very limited number of babysitters to rely on to having several I would feel very comfortable watching my wee one...
If you are in the market for a nanny or occasional sitter, I would definitely recommend Personally Paired..."
-Megan L. (parent)
"…I recently moved to Boston to attend graduate school at UMass Boston. My work experience included school settings, but I decided I wanted to try something new, such as being a nanny... [When I conducted the search myself], I was feeling overwhelmed trying to respond to each family and ask the right questions, not to mention confused ... Then I met Jessica at Personally Paired. She explained what her company is all about and after a few thorough conversations about my experience and future goals, I felt like I had a friend in Jessica and she had my best interest in mind. Not only did she pair me with families [through the Custom Search program] whom are great employers, but I feel like I’ve become part of their families. I have kept in contact with Jessica and will absolutely come to her when/if I ever need help again!"
- Laurel F. (caregiver)
"I was very excited to find Personally Paired. I'm a new graduate student and have always enjoyed working as a nanny. I was nervous moving to a different city because I knew how frustrating it can be to start all over looking for the right family to work with. In the past I would spend hours sorting through many websites, writing and responding to endless e-mails and have many phone conversations trying to find a perfect fit.
Personally Paired was great and made this process simple! Jessica was able to directly connect me with families that had matching needs. It was nice to go through the steps of meeting a family knowing we had similar interests. Thanks to this personal service I was able to work with one family on a part time as-needed-basis before starting with a family full time. It was great for everyone involved because all needs were met and it was an easy and fun experience. "
- Lauren D. (caregiver)
"I think Personally Paired is definitely a very smart, safe and stress-free way to find work as a sitter or nanny! Within a short time, I was hired by two of the families!"
-Katrine B. (caregiver)
I have met three wonderful families through Personally Paired, and have been very impressed with Jessica's ability to match my needs as a caregiver with the needs of parents and children. I have always been treated professionally and with respect, and look forward to working with Personally Paired for a long time. My regular family is amazing and wonderful, and I am looking forward to my two -year anniversary with them this July.
