Nannies and Mother's Helpers

For families in need of a part or full time nanny on a regular basis.
Finding the right nanny for your family can often be a challenging task. We’re here to help ease the process by offering a selection of pre-screened, dedicated and experienced nannies for you to interview and choose from.

How it Works

  • First, give us a call or email to discuss your childcare needs, and we will then send you a link to our online Family Application Form for you to fill out
  • The details of your position are then posted both internally and publicly, to ensure that it reaches all possible candidates
  • We will then forward you the resumes of any interested applicants who meet your specific requirements. You may interview as many candidates as are available
  • If you'd then like to interview any of our candidates, you just let us know which days and times are best and we'll arrange the rest
  • Interviews are typically held in your family's home, though some family's prefer to hold an initial interview in a public locations such as a coffee shop
  • We help you prepare for interviews by providing you with a list of suggested interview questions, but you are encouraged to include any of your won which are more specific to your family's needs
  • Once you have selected the perfect nanny for your family, we'll help with all the details such as negotiating wages and setting up a written agreement between you and your nanny
  • If required, we will provide assistance with registering as an employer and training in basic payroll procedures
  • We love to stay connected, and are always available to offer our continued support


  • Wages/Salary: hourly rates range from $17-$25 per hour depending on your budget, requirements and the experience of the nanny
  • Wages are paid directly to the nanny by you, the employer. Nannysitters is a referral agency only and does not pay nannies on behalf of families
  • As an employer, you are required to contribute CPP, EI and vacation pay on your nanny's behalf


  • Agency (placement) Fee: 12% of nanny's projected annual salary with a minimum of $500 and a maximum of $1800. Agency fee is payable directly to Nannysitters once an offer of employment has been accepted, and prior to your nanny commencing work with you
