Local Nannies and Mother's Helpers

For families in need of local, live-out care 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 connecting you with the most experienced and professional, fully-screened applicants 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 families prefer to hold an initial virtual interview

  • 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
  • Our in-house Payroll Service is designed to take all the hassle out of payroll processing! This service is included at no additional charge with all full-time placements.

  • We love to stay connected, and are always available to offer our continued support


  • Wages/Salary: hourly rates range from $19-$27 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 fee is payable directly to Nannysitters once an offer of employment has been accepted, and prior to your nanny commencing work with you

  • Nannysitters does not charge any additional administrative fees, and there is no cost to initiate the search for a nanny with our agency

*Agency fees are subject to tax while nanny wages are exempt.

Our guarantee

Should the relationship between you and your nanny be terminated prior to the end of your contract, we provide a conditional replacement guarantee so long as the terms and conditions of your employment remain the same. If employment is terminated within 3 months of the first day of employment, then the agency will endeavor to provide one suitable replacement at no extra cost. After 3 months there is a $395 administrative fee and after 6 months it is considered a new placement and our full placement fee will apply. 

Payment Options

We accept payment by credit card or e-transfer. Nanny wages are typically paid by e-transfer or direct deposit.
