My family and I were going to spend our winter in LA and I tried finding a nanny through sittercity. People on sittercity were so flakey they would accept the job one day then the next day cancel. I called Buckingham Nannies and had the best experience. They sent me profiles of woman right away and I had the best woman named Adeline in my home from this agency. She was so loving, smart, professional, and flexible. I would use their service again in a heartbeat. They do a background checks, verify references ,and have to find non flakey people. It is worth every dime.
