Babies in Bloom – Kelowna

This past weekend I had the absolute privilege of attending the Babies in Bloom fair in Kelowna which hosts the Okanagan’s biggest baby experience! Having been in the nanny biz for many years, I was expecting to see much of the same that we see at trade shows. But I was pleasantly surprised…not only by the amazing kids and parents I met, but also because I made so many fantastic connections. Bobs and Lolo were center stage which packed the house, as well as Kiki the Eco Elf, who all the children adored. There was also a face-painting booth and many of the exhibitors had crafts, food or toys to keep the little ones occupied.

Kelowna Opens March 1st!!!

The widely popular and well respected Vancouver-based boutique nanny agency has expanded once again! Over the past 11 years Nannies on Call has operated successfully in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Victoria and Whistler.

Why expand to the Okanagan? There is a profound need and we can help! There have been many inquiries from current clients that vacation during the summer months, as well as families needing our services while visiting the 3 ski hills in the area. Currently servicing high end hotels such as The Fairmont and Four Seasons, we are fostering the same types of relationships clients enjoy in every city. A booking with Nannies on Call always means the highest standard of care,
regardless of the location. We only represent the best of the best and would happily leave our own children with any of our caregivers. We truly are much more than the babysitter next door.
