Client and Nanny Reviews


"I discovered Gold Coast Nannies when I had to find a nanny ASAP and had posted something on Facebook. I had two unsuccessful nanny hires from care.com and felt like I was losing my mind and my ability to make sound judgments! After our very first phone conversation, Sarah immediately put my mind at ease and gave me the hope and optimism I needed to make it through my search for the perfect nanny. Every family has unique needs and requests, and Gold Coast Nannies is not only aware of that but emphasizes those needs when matching candidates with families. The level of care and professionalism they provide is top notch, I was never made to feel like my requirements or budget were unrealistic, and in fact felt Sarah supported and advised me throughout the process so that I stayed on target with both. I loved that Sarah already has a pool of candidates so when families like ours are in a time crunch, we were able to meet someone that same weekend of initially speaking with Sarah. Extremely fast response times, excellent candidate pool and proper vetting make this agency the one to use if you need help finding the perfect person for your family too!" -Adela S.

"I came across Gold Coast Nannies on social media, when a friend liked one of Sarah's blogs. After introducing myself, I heard back from Sarah in a very timely manner, and found her to be understanding, knowledgeable  and professional in her quest to match me with the perfect family.  She recognised my specific experience and knew exactly where I was most needed. Sarah has been diligent in her follow up on how things are going, she is a true partner in this often hard to navigate career. I have no hesitation whatsoever in referencing for Sarah Meadors and GCN." -Samantha R. Chicago, IL


"I cannot say enough great things about Sarah and Gold Coast Nannies!  When it comes to finding someone to work for your family and take care of your children, you obviously want to ensure you find the best.  We were very pleased with the candidate options that Sarah had found for us knowing what our needs were.  I did not want to do the search for someone on my own as I am a busy full time working mother of two boys 13 months apart.  Having Sarah send me the candidates with a good breakdown of each was extremely helpful and cut my time down a lot during my search.  What I love about Gold Coast Nannies is that not only do they help with finding care for your children, but I love that they have such a great blog.  They offer some great health tips, craft ideas, and much more!  Professional, friendly, responsive...you name it, this is a great company to help with your childcare needs.  I will 100% recommend them to anyone in their search!" -Liz R.

"I can't say enough good things about Sarah and Gold Coast Nannies! We found a spectacular fit for our family and Sarah was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. These are a few of the highlights of our experience: 

  • Sarah was so responsive to our need to find a nanny quickly, that she came to meet with us for the first time on New Years Eve! 
  • She was helpful in keeping us on track with the resumes that she had sent and was very good at providing additional context about the candidates, including why they might be a good fit for our family.
  • She was skilled at understanding our personalities and presenting us with candidates that would work well with us. 
  • We changed the criteria of what we were looking for after meeting a few nannies - we decided we needed someone who would travel with us. Sarah immediately was able to either confirm that was ok with candidates she had already shared or sent us additional options. 
  • We were away for two weeks and worried that we couldn't meet candidates while we were gone, but Sarah organized for us to have Facetime interviews instead, which worked really well. 

In summary, I felt like Sarah was really trying to find the best fit for us; she made the process straightforward and painless by providing quick responses and all the details we needed. I will absolutely go back to her if I ever need help again. Thank you Sarah!" -Emily M. Chicago, IL


"I was first introduced to Sarah through a nanny website. The interview process was flawless, and she was extremely diligent on responding to emails and follow up questions. I really appreciated her respect and thoughtfulness throughout the process of finding families to work for. She paired me with a family that was well suited to my personality and style. Gold Coast Nannies is an excellent company and I'm very pleased with all aspects of the company. I would recommend Sarah to both prospective nannies as well as families in search of child care."              -Natalie E. Los Angeles, CA


“I was excited after speaking with Sarah for the first time, knowing I had found someone who understood my needs, skills and experience as a nanny. Sarah provided me with opportunities, feedback and advice as she helped me search for the perfect fit. Gold Coast Nannies is an amazing company that carefully considers the expectations of both the family and the nanny. I felt that Sarah personally went out of her way to find me a family she knew I would work well with, and throughout the entire process, she was personable, persistent and reliable. I know that this is a company I will turn to again in the future!” -Anna B. Chicago, IL
