The Nannysitters Story  

Nannysitters was created to fill a long-empty niche in the Okanagan childcare market, and since its inception in 2008 has been successfully connecting residents and visitors throughout the Okanagan with fabulous local nannies.  Childcare providers play an important role in helping children to develop physically, emotionally and intellectually. It is our goal to support families in selecting the right childcare provider  by recruiting only the most professional, experienced and dedicated nannies available!

The Nannysitters Team

Christina Dean - Director of Operations & Placement Coordinator  

Christina is the proud founder and principal operator of Nannysitters. She combines her training in Business, Child Development and Family Dynamics with over 18 years of experience in the childcare industry both in Canada and the United Kingdom. Christina has an in-depth understanding of family-nanny dynamics, and excels in guiding families and nannies towards long-lasting and positive relationships. Having worked as a nanny for many years, and now having gone through the experience of hiring nannies for her own family, she has an even deeper understanding and appreciation of the processes involved. Christina's community is important to her, and she and her family enjoy regularly connecting with children and families at various festivals and events!

Maureen Stein - Manager of Bookings and Recruitment

Maureen relocated from Vancouver to join our team in early 2010. She began her adventures in nannying over 9 years ago as an au pair in France, and has been working with children ever since in the United Kingdom, Burnaby, and now Kelowna. She loves living in the Okanagan, and enjoys connecting with all of the wonderful children and families whom she meets through the agency every day. In addition to juggling our busy on-call service, Maureen is a pro at arts + crafts, and you'll often meet her out and about helping the little ones make beautiful creations at local craft fairs and community events.
