Quality First

We personally interview each of our nannies.

Whether you’re looking for live-out full-time childcare (and home management, too), a part-time nanny, or for just a super reliable, amazing human to watch your kids while you’re on Date Night, we have a roster of meticulously-screened, highly-recommended nannies who fit the bill.

How is our screening extraordinary? A booking with Nannies on Call means safety and reliability above all else. We personally interview all of our nannies – who are only considered for a meeting once our extensive pre-screening requirements have been met. We call each reference and perform an in depth personal reference check.

Pre-Screening Requirements

Proof of age—19+ years (18+ in Alberta) In Person Interview A clear Criminal Record Check Current CPR and First Aid certification Childcare resume with two years childcare experience (minimum) Reference letters with direct contact information Driving record Photo identification Legally authorized to work in Canada

Hire an On Call Nanny

 
 
Ready to delight your little ones 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

When things come up, like date night, weekend getaways, work functions, heck, even yoga class (self care first, moms!), our nannies come through in the clutch—any time of day or night, seven days a week.

These aren’t 14-year-old high school students; they’re childcare professionals who’ve been interviewed personally and passed our rigorous pre screening requirements. So they’re certifiably amazing.

 
 
Booking is easy.

If you’re planning at least 36 hours in advance, book your nanny online.

One of our booking agents will call you back, confirm your Extraordinary Nanny, and connect you with your nanny. She’ll also send you a background about your nanny—who she is, what her education is, and why she’s so darn Extraordinary!

If you’re in a panic, breathe easy and call us.

We’ll make childcare magic happen.

I used your services for the first time today. I cannot express how happy I was with the service you provided. First, the booking was extremely fast and very professional. Information delivered was very clear and detailed. Then, the nanny that came in was extremely professional (Nanny Christine). She was right on time. Very well educated, well-spoken, and definitely took good care of my child. I was very skeptical to have a stranger come to my house and watch over my child for a day, but I have to tell you that I will definitely use your services again. Your company should be taken as an example by most daycares on how to run a “service excellence organization”.
Great job.

Edmonton: 780-409-8746
Calgary: 403-351-0180
Ottawa: 613-656-6783
Toronto: 647-776-0911
Vancouver: 604-676-1022
Victoria: 250-410-015

We’ll talk about your unique family needs and make sure we have the right Extraordinary Nanny to fit your family just right!

After we chat, fill out our online questionnaire to start the placement process, which usually takes between 4-8 weeks to complete.

 
 
Extraordinary Placement Process

Hiring a full-time nanny is like adopting a new family member—it’s a really big deal! This is someone your kids are going to see every day and likely fall in love with. It’s important that they’re amazing, trustworthy, caring, capable, and utterly and completely the most incredible. This is no small task. That’s why we take it on.

Step 1 – We pre-screen nannies

We only invite the best nannies with the most extensive childcare experience to the interview table. To be interviewed, potential nannies must provide:

  • A completed 6-page detailed application form
  • 2 to 5 childcare-related references + one written reference letter
  • Proof of legal authorization to work in Canada (including photo ID)
  • A current First Aid/CPR Certificate or proof of registration in an upcoming class
  • A Clear Criminal Record Check
  • Driver’s License and Driving Record (if applicable)

We interview each potential nanny in person (because anyone can look good on paper!). It’s important that we truly get to know our nannies as human beings. So we use this time to assess their values, personality, strengths and weaknesses.

We call a minimum of two references for each nanny we believe will uphold our Extraordinary standards. Without exception.

Step 2 – Tell us what you need

Call us and tell us what your family needs. Then, fill out the Extraordinary Family Placement Questionnaire. We’ll call you within 24 hours to review, fill in any gaps, and start the hunt for your own Extraordinary Nanny.

Step 3 – Relax while we do the heavy lifting.

We contact our network of our pre-screened Extraordinary Nannies who fit your needs exactly. We tell them about you and your family. If they are excited to meet your family and we believe they’re a great match, we’ll send you their resume and a personal note penned by the Extraordinary Nanny. You tell us who you’d like to meet and we’ll coordinate the interviews. Meet as few or as many nannies as you’d like. It’s important to find “the one”.

Step 4 – Make it official.

You tell us who you want to hire and we’ll handle the negotiations, draft a contract, and coordinate revisions as necessary. Then celebrate!

 
 
The Extras

For all Full Time Placements (30+ hours per week), we include:

  • Payroll services. So all you have to do on payday is print and pay.
  • On-call nanny service. If your full-time, part-time, or on-call nanny calls in sick or is on vacation, an on-call nanny is just one phone call away.

Our Replacement Policy

Although we have a track record for great matches, not all nannies and families click. If your Extraordinary Nanny resigns or is terminated within a year of his/her start date, we’ll give you a significant credit toward your next search with Nannies on Call. The credit starts at 75% of the initial agency fee and is pro-rated to either 50% or 25%, depending on the duration of your Nanny’s employment. We do not offer refunds

Group Bookings
