FAMILY REVIEWS :
King Family
Kim, I must commend you and the organization for the contract of employment and the other documents we received. It is the most organized and robust framework with viable content that I have encountered from an au pair agency. We have worked with others and am most impressed with Little Sunshines. Having qualified as a teacher, myself, in the first part of my career your guiding principles are right on track and robust. Thank you and believe we are on the right path. To a successful journey forward for all.

Beavis Family
Your professionalism is outstanding. Very good service all round.

Calitz Family
Little Sunshines attended to our enquiry quickly, they understood our requirements, they were extremely professional, their candidates were good and I would most certainly use them in the future if need be.

Bernon Family
Efficient, professional and I would definitely use your services again. Thank you.

Van Niekerk Family
Outstanding in every way! I thank you for your assistance and will sincerely recommend you to our other moms.

Burger Family
Excellent service – thank you very much!

Singer Family
You were very professional and you had wonderful CVs of applicants. It was a pleasure using your services. Thank you.

Naidoo Family
We registered with 3 other “top” and “well known” agencies in Johannesburg and yet yours was the only agency that took the time to understand our needs and what my family was really looking for. I thank you most deeply for your professionalism and understanding. I was super impressed as was my husband. I will recommend you to the community and my colleagues as the go to agency for an au pair. Well done and thank you!

Wyness Family
An update from our side, we are relocating to Mozambique and this is the only reason we would have terminated. Unless Liam wants to move with us! Liam has been an absolute star. The boys absolutely love him and we will really miss his assistance with the boys homework. He was very diligent with the boys, and strict without needing to shout. The boys were kept in a good regime of arriving home from school, changing, eating, doing homework, and then playing sports in the garden. An excellent au pair. Thank you!

Pretorius Family
Thank you for all your help. It has been such a pleasure dealing with you. You have been exceptionally professional and recommended such wonderful candidates. I will definitely be recommending you to all my friends. Thank you again

McCormack Family
Your service and professionalism has been exemplary and we would not hesitate to recommend you. Thanks also for your thoughts for our daughter Ella.

Barata Family
I would really like to commend you on the level of service. Especially considering the decline of the service level in our country. It is refreshing to experience such interactive service and just all round service for a change. Keep up the great work. Thank you!

Cary Family
I must say you guys are very professional and proficient.

Galvao Family
Thank you so much for all your help. I found you to be honest, reliable and extremely professional. I will definitely use Little Sunshines in future… BUT hopefully not in the very near future!

I just wanted to let you know that ***’s employment worked out really well for me. She is awesome and I am very happy! It was a pleasure to work with such a professional company. You are excellent at your work, and very good at initiating contact, following up on leads and providing feedback.

Moodley Family
Thanks to Kim for making this process as painless as possible!

Molefi Family
My name is Thabang Molefi. I am very happy and grateful to Little Sunshines – they are very good and professional. I needed an Au Pair for my 3 kids and they organized me one within a week – outstanding! I am so happy with them I will definitely recommend them to my friends. I wish them all the best to help people to find good au pairs. Thank you so much Little Sunshines. Keep up the good work. I have since used them for repeat business and once again they gave me outstanding service!

Tong Family
I contacted Little Sunshines earlier this year to assist me in my search for an au pair for my 3 girls. This was my first foray into the world of au pairing. The team at Little Sunshines provided appropriate guidance, listened to my needs and concerns, was responsive and all this resulted in me being able to find a person that was suitably experienced and, more importantly, connected with my girls. For a “first-timer” working with Little Sunshines was a pleasant, hassle-free recruitment experience.

Johns Family
I will also recommend you to others. I was very happy with the service I received from you.

Van Onselen Family
We found Little Sunshines to be very professional.

Monaise Family
I would like to take this opportunity to thank both you and Kim. My experience with Little Sunshines has been nothing put professional and pleasurable.

Sage Family
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic & efficient service.

Schultz Family
We would like to give our thanks to Little Sunshines, who have helped us to find a sterling au pair! We tried many other au pair agencies in Johannesburg and they simply couldn’t deliver. Upon hearing about Little Sunshines through a family friend we contacted them and we were ecstatic with the results. They took our enquiry seriously, they dealt with our query efficiently and above all else they took the time to really understand what it is that we are looking for in an au pair. Within 2 weeks we hired Susan and we haven’t looked back since. Thank you to Kim for all your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm. We will recommend Little Sunshines to anyone we know who is looking for an au pair.

Horn Family
Thank you very much for your professional service and help! I’ll honestly recommend you to anyone who might ask.

Coetzee Family
I do not usually write testimonials, however this agency is deserving of one! Upon first contact I was immediately impressed with the professionalism that my enquiry was handled with. Within minutes of finishing my conversation with them, I received all the documentation I needed and upon submitting it they were proactive and sent through CVs for suitable candidates. After meeting 3 different candidates I knew I had chosen the right agency to assist me. The candidates were a cut above the rest in terms of what other agencies had sent to me and it was very difficult to make a decision in terms of which candidate was right due to the high calibre. With the help of Kim and her advice, I made my selection and within 1 month I knew that I had found an au pair that was perfectly suited to my family. In future there is only one agency I will call to find an au pair, Little Sunshines.

Wilson Family
I have pleasure in writing this testimonial for Little Sunshines due to the positive experience I had with the agency when seeking out my au pair. The team were eager to assist me, they were professional and courteous and I felt that they truly cared about finding the right candidate for us. My husband and I are very happy with our new au pair and my kids just love her!

Maseko Family
Thank you Little Sunshines for assisting us with our search for our au pair. You are a wonderful agency to deal with and thank you for caring so much about our needs. We are very grateful for all the time and effort you took and we will recommend the agency to friends of ours.

Carthy Family
Little Sunshines is an exceptional au pair placement agency. They are passionate about the industry and it shows in the way that they deal with their clients. I truly appreciated all the knowledge they passed on as well as the tips and advice in terms of conducting interviews and what to look out for. I have never dealt with an agency like this and I have used many agencies over the years, being a working mom of 4! I commend the ladies on a job well done and should I need an au pair in the future I will definitely be returning to Little Sunshines!

CANDIDATE REVIEWS :

Carien – November 2018
It was so nice to have my interview today. It was so professional and the whole system is so well worked out and organised and thorough.
I can definitely see the difference in your structure compared to other agencies.

Hazel – May 2018
Compared to the rubbish out there, Little Sunshines was a breath of fresh air. I am an older lady and I have been in the industry for many years, locally and overseas, and this agency really stands out amongst the others.

Katya – April 2018
I registered with Little Sunshines at the beginning of April 2018 and by the middle of the month I was employed by a very warm and loving family. The whole process was professional and easy. A great agency compared to the others.

Sonnet – April 2018
I am so grateful I chose to go to Little Sunshines. Kim Gnodde and Alice were amazing. So kind and always there to answer my questions (sorry ladies, I know I had many!). I would recommend Little Sunshines to anyone who is serious about getting a proper au pair job.

Dominique – February 2018
Kim Gnodde and her team really do go the extra mile. They told me the truth from the beginning about the industry and what I could expect in terms of finding a job. They didn’t sugar coat things just to make me feel better. I appreciated their honesty. Within 2 weeks of registering with them I was placed.

Robyn – August 2017
I would just like to thank you so much for all of your assistance with placing me so quickly! I was honestly blown away by your impeccable service and efficient assistance! I will definitely recommend your services if I ever hear of anyone that needs an au pair or if an au pair needs an agency! Thank you so much again for all of your help!

Sheree – June 2017
Just an email to say I was so pleased with the level of excellence. You guys are so thorough and organised. It makes one really feel important in the procedure. I was blessed to feel like I had someone looking out for my interests as well as the family’s. All in all it was a great experience compared to what I have been experiencing with other agencies. Well done great job.

Farren – June 2017
Thank you for all of your assistance, the Little Sunshines team is great! I definitely appreciate your help and I couldn’t be happier. You have placed me with a wonderful family and I believe I will do well there.

Kaylin – March 2017
I’d like to thank you for finding me the perfect family.  I love working here and little Ethan is a joy to take care of. I hope that you find many more equally fantastic families for the au pairs that come your way.

Jennalea – September 2016
I haven’t been with Little Sunshines for very long, but in the time I have, I have found them very helpful, fast replying and extremely polite. It’s a real pleasure to communicate with them 🙂

Megan – September 2016
I would like to thank Little Sunshines for all their assistance in placing me with my family. I really appreciate all the time and effort they took to answer all my questions and to address my concerns. They were the only agency that seemed to truly care about finding a position that suited me, not just my requirements! Wishing you all the best of luck, you guys are great!

Bianca – January 2016
When I arrived for my interview I was immediately impressed. Little Sunshines gave me an “Au Pair Guidelines” pack which had a whole bunch of information regarding what to expect as an au pair, how salaries are calculated, useful numbers in case of emergency and so much more. They were the only agency that did this and it showed to me that they really cared. During the interview process they also asked me about the type of family that I wouldn’t want to work for so again it showed that they were interested in placing me in a family that I clicked with and not just one that matched my specifications. I was placed within 1 week of registering with them and I am very happy with the family that I am currently working for. Thank you for all your hard work.

Leigh-Anne – August 2015
I heard about Little Sunshines through a friend of mine who found a position through them, and I chose to contact them as a result. During the time that I dealt with them I found them to be professional, caring and informative – different to the other agencies around Johannesburg. It took them 2 weeks to place me, whereas the other 2 agencies that I had registered with had yet to phone me for an interview. I was also impressed with the contract of employment that they gave us to use as it left little room for misinterpretation.

Jessica – June 2013
If I ever need to use an au pair agency again I will definitely come back to Little Sunshines. They really did go the extra mile with my placement and I am eternally grateful!
