From Our Clients

  • "Rent-A-Mum" have a wonderful skill in knowing the type of childcare you need before you know yourself! Highly recommended!

  • 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 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.

    I will be leaving Hong Kong for a work assignment in July 2006, but will return in early 2007, and to Rent-A-Mum because I am certain that Shirley will offer me the type of work I do best.

  • I am a Professional English Nanny and came to Rent-a-Mum a few months ago when looking for a full time position.
    I found Shirley to be very supportive and accommodating, she new exactly what I was looking for and listened to my needs.
    I am now working for a fantastic family who have made me feel very welcome and part of their family.
    Even now I still keep in touch with Shirley and she is always there to give me encouragement and advice.
    I would definately recommend Rent-a-Mum to anyone looking to work as a Nanny in Hong Kong.

  • I have been registered with Shirley Robinson as a nanny for two years. I have recently graduated from university in England. The availability and flexibility of Rent-A-Mum has enabled me to work part time during the holiday periods.
    Shirley is very friendly, reliable, courteous and sociable as well as being very popular with both clients and nannies. For example, she always offers support if there is a problem and accommodates the individual needs and priorities of parents. I have consistently been suited with good families. My experience working for Shirley has only been positive and I have no reservations in recommending her and Rent-A-Mum.

  • This was my first international job and I was not used to city living. Upon arrival in Hong Kong, Shirley’s support was invaluable. She familiarized me with the local area; showing me where everything was, including public transport, local facilities etc. She introduced me to other people working in the childcare field, and ensured that all practicalities like accommodation and visa permits were taken care of. Shirley was never more than a phone call away and she went above and beyond the call of duty to make me feel reassured and relaxed. Because of Rent-A-Mum, my transition was a smooth one. I love it in Hong Kong and appreciate the support Shirley gave as it made it all the more easier to settle into this vibrant and fun city.

  • Rent-A-Mum have provided me with an excellent service over the years. Shirley knows all her candidates personally and is able to recommend each one on her own experience of them. Her skill lies in being able to define your needs and in matching them to the right families. Her personal approach is invaluable in ensuring peace of mind when entrusting your children to somebody else’s care.

  • I would like to say today that we really appreciate your business as it fills a need for babysitting with the highest quality sitters that we could ever hope to find – I trust you 100% to send a person who will care for our son with maturity in decision making and be sensitive to his needs on the occasion of the sitting. He always looks forward to ANY sitter that comes from your agency!

  • Our move to Park Island and ongoing requirements from Rent-a-Mum could have been expecting too much?
    Baby-sitters still came and stayed late – and came back!
    Daytime – a Nanny to cover very early mornings and all this done exactly as we wanted. Professional contact, prompt help and a caring personal level of service.

  • Rent-A-Mum has provided me with professional childcare services since the birth of my first child in 2003. The ability of successfully matching my family’s requirements and style, with the skills and personality of our nanny, has enabled me to have peace of mind when returning to full-time employment. This year Rent-A-Mum provided a temporary nanny at a few days notice during an extremely difficult time for my family because of illness. My temporary nanny was a perfect fit and helped us through an enormously stressful time. Happily, our family is through its crisis and my temporary nanny is now on a permanent contract! I would happily recommend the services of Rent-A-Mum for all your childcare needs.
