"The service and dedication Little Royalty provided was priceless!"

"Evie was a nanny herself for many years and she really knows the industry better than anyone we've ever met! She was able to provide guidance on candidates, assist in negotiations and recommend an amazing payroll service! The process of finding an amazing and qualified nanny is an exhausting experience. If you are in Minneapolis or frankly anywhere in the Midwest, Little Royalty would receive the ultimate recommendation and kudos! I would not consider any other option!"
