"Wow!! I can’t say enough positive things about Robin and the Nanny Connection. She is known in my group of friends as the, “Matchmaker”. She put her heart and soul into finding my family the perfect nanny, not just once, but twice. She listens with an ear as a mother and as an employer. She counsels, comforts and sees to it that the connection is made. We are so blessed to have found the best nannies to take care of my three children while I am at work. Each nanny I have encountered is professional and enthusiastic; due to the care that Robin takes in seeking out the best ones!" Chara- Blackhawk
"I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the outstanding care and understanding that you bring to your profession. As you remember I had just moved to the east bay area and had no idea what I would run into in my quest for a quality position after my last position as a nanny was for 9 years. I had a great number of concerns as to location, people, expectations and qualifications among others. With your outstanding reputation I was lead to you. I am so please to have been fortunate enough to have found you to guide me through the process. The qualifications required by the state, the local government, and all of the others that made me very nervous about the whole process. The families that you sent me to were of the highest quality and the decision was most difficult. Your caring nature and level of professionalism was the most impressive of all the agencies that I spoke with. Thanks again for being the best in the business!" Phyllis M.
"In my experience with "A Nanny Connection" I have found them to be very efficient and diligent. They take into consideration the needs of both the nannies as well as those of the families. I have been extremely satisfied with my placements and am very thankful for the relationships I have developed with these families. It is without reservation that I recommend this service to anyone!" Sherri- San Ramon
"I started working with Robin and A Nanny Connection in 2000. Robin is AWESOME!! She takes the time to listen to my needs as a Nanny and presents me with the families that she knows will be a good match. She doesn't rest until that perfect match has been made. Over the years we have become friends and I've seen that the same care and attention to detail extends to the families she works with as well as the Nannies. Her energy is amazing!" Deirdre (featured in "Diablo" magazine and nominated for The International Nanny of the year award twice)
"Robin is without a doubt #1 in the nanny world. I have previously worked with other agencies but once I contacted Robin (5 years ago) I knew I would no longer seek nanny positions from other nanny agencies in the east bay (or anywhere!). She is extremely professional yet unintimidating when I confront her with an issue or concern. She is prompt when returning my phone calls and patiently awaits for me to find the right fit between prospective families and myself (the nanny). I have an immense amount of respect for Robin and would not hesitate to utilize her services to find a nanny for my own children in the future." Alison
"The name A Nanny Connection says it all!! Robin is awesome when it comes to “connecting” families and childcare providers. She has something for everyone. Daytime or night shifts, full or part time jobs ranging in length of a few months to over a year. As a nanny what I like most is that she listens and takes time for each individual situation. She’s energetic, compassionate, and professional. I highly recommend her services to families and childcare providers. She’s the best." Elizabeth
"I look forward to starting my new job and I feel truly blessed that my last 2 experiences have been with awesome families and I feel that this will be no less. It seems like a great match. You my friend are an instrument of God and not just for me but for the families that you represent. Thank you, with all of my heart. You deserve honor and recognition for the services that you provide." Phyllis
"Thank you. I am letting you know how special you are. Thank you for everything you do for me and all the nannies who work with you. Thank you thank you thank you." Martha
"Nanny Connection is a true connection. I first went through the Nanny Connection five years ago. Robin found and connected me with a great, amazing family. Right from the beginning, we knew it was a perfect match for everybody. When the time came that I was no longer needed at the position, I knew the place to go was back to Nanny Connection. I called Robin, and she recognized me right away. She's like a best Friend. She truly listens to everything you say. She does the perfect match with Nanny & Family. Once again she did an amazing job with placing me. Being a Nanny is not just a job to me, it's my career choice, it's what I love to do, and take it very seriously. Nanny Connection is the only agency I'll ever go through, as Robin puts the connection in the Nanny Connection. She's the Best!" Shelly
"Robin LeGrand runs one of the most organized, proactive nanny agencies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a long time child care specialist, I really appreciate her enthusiasm, feedback, and initiative. She really gets right to work matching up qualified nannies with families. Within two weeks of our first meeting, I was employed with a great family, whom I stayed with for nearly two years, very happily. She keeps her promises, and she is on the ball. I recommend her to all qualified nannies I know when they are seeking employment." Haley
