What our Nannies Say
What our Clients Say
I am a French nanny and have lived in Hong Kong since 1994. I have been registered with Rent-A-Mum since 1999. Since then, Shirley has placed me in three different full-time nanny positions in Hong Kong, as well as placing me in numerous babysitting/maternity positions in recent years. I like working with Shirley because she listens to my needs and will always put me in touch with clients who will suit me best. Her support over the years is greatly appreciated. Shirley also puts emphasis on the need for effective communication, and whether you are registering with her as a professional nanny or as a babysitter, you can guarantee that the information she gives you to do your work to the best of your ability, is always correct.

We have been working with Rent-A-Mum for about a year and have had a great experience with the company. We initially registered with them because we needed the flexibility of a part time job to start our business, and working with Shirley & her team has done just that and more. They have done an amazing job at matching us with the right families and making sure both her clients and nannies are happy. We are thrilled with our experience here and highly recommend Rent-A-Mum

I have known Shirley Robinson for over 10 years and have worked for Rent a Mum on and off during this period, in a variety of capacities, from full – time Nanny to baby – sitting and to most recently, Maternity Nursing. I have always found Shirley to be kind and considerate, she always does her best to match the Nanny to the client, taking into account the Nanny’s needs and preferences as well as the client’s. Shirley Robinson is why Rent a Mum is so successful, when discussing the needs of your family it is important to talk to someone who knows their Nanny’s well and has the experience and down to earth approach that Shirley does.

I've used Rent-A-Mum on multiple occasions as I needed to find somebody to take care of my 2 girls (ages 2 and 5) while I was working and when their usual nanny was away. I have been more than satisfied by the service provided! Shirley replied very quickly to my request by e-mail and always answered all my concerns and identified the best profile to suit to my daughters' ages. Shirley then sent me the CV of the suggested candidate and also gave me a bit of her background, which was really reassuring. I knew that I could trust the caregiver as soon as she arrived and that she would be able to handle the situation if my girls were upset in my absence, which was really important for me as I needed to have peace of mind while I was working. The caregivers that arrived were great! They took very good care of my girls, and I was so happy they didn't even cry when I left! I highly recommend Rent-A-Mum!

We have been using the 'boy-sitting' service provided by Shirley and her team at Rent-A-Mum since we arrived in Hong Kong from UK in the summer of 2016. At that point, my two sons were aged 11yrs and 9yrs. Being unsure whether or not we wished to employ a full-time helper, we still needed someone to be with the boys when we were out. Shirley has made sure we have consistently had the same sitters. Each of the three sitters we have had over the period to date has been delightful, engaging, reliable, punctual, interested in our boys and English speaking. The boys have been very comfortable being left with all of them and enjoyed their company. The service that Rent-a-Mum has provide for us has been very professional and efficient and also invaluable in making our transition from UK to Hong Kong so much easier and indeed our ongoing lives here. I couldn't recommend Shirley and her team highly enough.

I have been using Rent-a-Mum for babysitting for almost 12 years, and am very satisfied with their services. Shirley has always matched babysitters suitable for the age of my children, from when they were babies to now tweens. As long-term clients we have been fortunate to build a great rapport with some babysitters and my children are always pleased to see them. I highly recommend Rent-a-Mum for babysitting services
