My girls attended summer camp at WORK TO RIDE in Fairmount Park this summer. The Owner of YOUR OTHER HANDS is a Volunteer gardener out there to give back to children that she has profited from the past 30 years of providing the best quality child care to families in their Hour of NEED. She was such an out going "pleasant "sweet little old lady so out=going so friendly so sincerely invested in children. She gave out her cards only when asked and Thank goodness I did. Yesterday our Nanny called out again last minute both my Husband & I had big days and could NOT take off. At 5 am she answered the phone I has not registered or completed any paperwork yet that did not stop her from sending us a GREAT nanny for the day. I recommend this 24/ 7 service for so many reasons, Affordability, Accessibility, Quality care, Bonded Staff.

I just recently found my self in the position of needing both a full-time nanny and short-term care for my toddlers 2 and 4. I found Your Other Hands on the internet by simply desperately looking up nanny services and they were there.

Being a single full-time working mother of 3, you can imagine how busy life can be. Over this summer, I found myself in a very tight spot. The camp where my kids were enrolled had to close its doors for a week and I was given no notice!

Polished Professional operation that begun from one woman's kitchen table. I called them due to the overwhelming great rumors I'd heard around the water cooler at my law firm. My regular nanny that came to us from a good friend.Even though her care qualifications were great her lack of responsibility and sheer complacency towards my husbands job and mine was causing both of us problems at work. We just could not afford to lose our jobs, no matter how fabulous she was when she was on. But the problem she was less and less "on". I called YOUR OTHER HANDS, the owner answered, a honest down to earth woman of integrity, who out right refused to promise me the moon if she could not deliver. I was impressed by the passion and dedication to her company along with her staff and clients. When we went through the interview process well oiled arrangements all on time & professionally qualified women from all walks of life. We had such a hard time deciding on who to hire of those she'd sent to is that we did working interviews, per her suggestion. Not only did this save all concerned time and money but allowed me to work side by side with the candidates. This gave me an insight I may not have had otherwise and once we chose, we were 100% confident about the woman who is now almost a family member by now. How do you thank a service who goes so far up and beyond towards helping me be the best Mom I can be? To express my sincere satisfaction this is the best I can do to repay them for all they have done for us. You have just give them a call!

All it takes is one phone call to this company to get a feel for how trashy of an establishment they run. Anyone that writes positive reviews must have no expectations for safe child care whatsoever!\r

Recently was referred to Yoh from a center city hotel I was planning / hosting an event. There were more than 30 children of all ages that would be needing childcare. I was at my wits end but once I spoke to the contact person I felt more than confident I had called the right service. They put me at ease immediately. The staff that arrived were punctual, courteous & professional. They had a knack for making each child feel special. They totally exceeded my expectations. The children all had a great time & the parents couldn't be more grateful. I am looking forward to working with them again in the near future.

Please view the International NannyAssociations's website (www.nanny. Org) - it specifically lists the company as a company posing to be a member who is not.

They described themselves as a caring responsible professional nanny service. We interviewed 13 candidates and only 4 had any really nanny experience. The person we chose had never worked for a nanny service before, she was great at the beginning but within 3 mos., she was calling out at random and waiting for us to leave for work before developing ailments. They provided temporary replacements, 2 were fine, and one nanny frightened our son terribly. We thought we found a permanent replacement and they assured us she was a seasoned nanny. As it turns out she had not work as a nanny for almost 13 yrs and she left our son in the pack n play with a soiled diaper so she could make cell phone calls. We terminated our relation with the service after that. They seemed to be more interested in misrepresenting themselves and collecting fees than proving responsible professional nanny care.

I used the services of Your Other Hands while visiting Philadelphia. I had to go to a dinner and didn't know anyone in town to watch my kids. I am a very protective mom and was pretty worried about leaving my kids in a hotel with a nanny. I checked with my hotel and they recommended Your Other Hands. I contacted them and they were so reassuring and helpful that I felt really comfortable about leaving my kids with them. My kids had a wonderful time with Madeline. She had even brought toys for them and played games. Awsome service. Absolutely recommended.

Message from Your Other Hands

My goal was to "CREATE A COMPANY FOR MOMS BY MOMS" because as mothers ourselves we know everything our clients are going through because we have been there done that. Our motto remains the same " IT'S OUR NATURE TO NURTURE" not only the child or children but also our moms, who need as much TLC as the children at times. WE are proud to say we find excellent women who really love children, and find them a job, we found a family an excellent care giver, they never need to worry about or be distracted at work worrying is my baby being held enough, they come home to a tidy house, a healthy happy baby, the mom now can give her undivided attention to family and the husband realizes his wife has found a wife to help and SUPPORT her, and their marriage is off to a better start. Plus the savings over day care costs are a NO BRAINIER,because parents only pay for the exact amount of hours they use, no more no less.This is huge for parents of more then one child, why pay a day care the cost for two children when both can be cared for at home for the cost of one child. And if you think hard enough about it are our children our future if we are going to spend money on anything in these hard economical times should it not be on our children? Are they not going to be institutionalized enough once they enter school till they retire, lets let the children discover themselves first, their own identity, their own personality in the care of their own home. No more running back and forth to a day care, just answer the doorbell and the rest is up to us. only a phone call away 24/7.

More about Your Other Hands

Offering child care in the child's own environment, where parents control the germs, and the philosophy for their development. So much unlike day care, in all good ways, especially economically! You only pay for service you use, and nothing else. You pay the service, based on documented time cards, they take care of everything else for the parents. Benefits, vacation days, sick day replacements, taxes are all done via the office to save working parents the best of both worlds. Types of service offered varies from maximum full time live out nannies to the occasional emergency request to an evening out and everything in between. Costs are based on amount of service used in a given week, the more you use the less it is per hour.And they even send out end of year tax statements to all clients for childcare tax deduction.Most of their over 200 + staff nannies have been with them for over 10 years another aspect that speaks for itself. If they can not help you go out of their way to find someone who can. Honesty and integrity are this companies corner stone. Ask any OB-GYN who they recommend and or any pediatrician associated with CHOP or ST. Christopher's. The real deal is here and only here.
