Cancellation Policy

  • Booking fees are non-refundable, but in the event that you need to cancel a booking, we'll simply apply the fee as a credit to your account to be used at any time within 1 year from the date of purchase. A cancellation fee of $60 will be applied to all morning bookings cancelled later than 12pm the day prior, and all afternoon/evening bookings cancelled later than 6pm the day prior. Cancellation fees will be automatically charged to the credit card used at the time of booking. The cancellation fee is to cover our minimum 3hrs of wages for the cancelled nanny.
  • In the unlikely event that your nanny needs to cancel your booking due to illness or unforeseen circumstance, Nannysitters cannot be held responsible for any wages lost or expenses incurred. We will endeavour to provide alternate care immediately, and if we are unable to do so we will provide a refund of your booking fee as well as an additional booking credit to your account.
  • Nannysitters Placement Agency will not be held responsible for any losses resulting from our inability to provide service due to either nanny or family expressing any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • We understand that plans can change! We are happy to pass along any requested changes to your booked nanny.
  • If the change is made within our regular cancellation window as stated above but results in the nanny losing more than 2hrs of the time they committed to originally, staying more than 1hr later than they committed to originally, or if they are unable to arrive earlier due to prior commitments, then they have the right to decline the shift and we will make every effort to find a nanny to fulfill your newly requested time.
  • If adjusting the start-time earlier after our cancellation deadline has passed, please understand that your confirmed nanny may be unavailable. If this results in you requiring another nanny to fill the shift, then our cancellation fee will apply if we are unable to offer another shift to the nanny who was originally assigned to you.
  • If adjusting the start-time later after our cancellation deadline has passed, you will be expected to pay the nanny from the time they were originally booked for.
