Sheren is amazing! I met her at Starbucks while I was on maternity leave and she was the easiest and most lovely person to chat with over coffee. I casually mentioned to her that I was looking for a new nanny and she immediately began setting me up with the many great nannies in her vast network. She understood exactly what I was looking for in a nanny (I had pretty specific requirements), and the nanny I ultimately found through her checked every box. I tried working with other agencies and while they sent me many qualified candidates, they just missed the mark in terms of understanding what I was seeking in a nanny. Sheren is a warm and wonderful person who simply finds happiness in making long-lasting connections between families and nannies. I am so thankful I met her.

I was looking for a part-time nanny for my two girls to replace my nanny at the time who was pregnant and parting ways. I started a search on Care.com and had to sift through so many applications and conducted MANY in-person interviews with candidates who were not a good fit. I came across Sheren's business card and reached out to her. Within days, she had an interview set-up for me with someone who met all of my criteria and was an amazing fit for our family. We were able to hire the applicant and are so happy. Sheren made the process so easy for us and did all the legwork. She genuinely makes sure everyone is happy and satisfied. I definitely would recommend and use Sheren again.

I called Sheren looking for a nanny I could trust for my granddaughter. They started setting up interviews with many qualified candidates. This is the first time I ever used a nanny, so I was a bit apprehensive. Sheren made me feel so comfortable and she was so professional and warm from the beginning. What I loved about Sheren was she took the time to really get to know my granddaughter and she set up the interviews based on who would be the right fit. I called another service and it was quantity they sent me & not quality. I never went with the other service because I never felt that piece of mind like I felt with Sheren. I don’t care about what you know until I know you care, and that’s how I felt with Precious Nannies. I’m thrilled with the agency! I would recommend this service to others that may be nervous about using an agency. My family and I are so happy with Precious Nannies & I would recommend them to others. 5 stars!!
Sheren is a dream! She’s professional, intelligent, responsive and is beyond caring for children. Sheren has watched both of my girls for a couple date nights, but she’s often with them during the day as well. She and my current nanny are close, so they schedule playdates and try to meetup for activities on a regular basis. Both of my daughters (2 & 4 years old) have grown to love and trust like she’s a part of our family. Sheren is always happy, energetic and positive, which it’s extremely important for our family and for our kids to be around. We hope to always remain close to Sheren and utilize her as a caregiver and friend for years to come!
Thompson family, Roscoe Village
Sheren was great to work with. She spent time getting to know us and making sure she understood preferences and expectations of a nanny for our six month old daughter. She provided us with numerous candidates and was patient with us as we continued to interview and try to identify the best fit for our family. When our first choice didn't work out, she jumped into action and found us a replacement quickly that met our needs. If you're looking for a nanny for your family, Sheren is a great choice to help you.
Akiva Family, roscoe village
As first time parents, we were very nervous about the nanny hiring process and even more nervous to leave our son. However, Sheren made the process a breeze. She vetted the nannies before making a recommendation to us based upon her years of experience, provided us with guidance, and answered our numerous questions. She even recommended some age appropriate toys for our son. Sheren was able to understand what we wanted in a nanny and found us the perfect person that we now view as part of our family. Sheren was truly a joy to work with and Precious Nannies is highly recommended!
