Nannies on Call thrives because of the dedication and enthusiasm of our hundreds of Extraordinary Nannies. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the on call nannies that are celebrating their “Nannyversaries” this month:

How to Ease Bee and Wasp Sting

With summer nearly in full swing, the pollinators are out doing their thing, and the kids are playing outside, too! Normally these black and yellow stinging insects will get out of the way of our games, but it helps to be prepared in case someone does get stung.

Creative Nanny

Mandy Pattinson – Vancouver

Mandy began working with Nannies on Call in November of 2011. Since that time she has worked with 40 past families and completed 128 bookings. Her genuine fondness for children and creativity makes her a popular nanny to request. A perfect blend of professionalism, fun and engaging personality makes her our June Nanny of the Month!

Calgary Play!

Now, Calgary families may already be aware of this, but I came across the TommyKPlay Indoor Playground and Family Entertainment Center when I was doing a reference verification for an applying nanny. I was quite intrigued and so I checked out the location. I must admit that I am rather envious that I didn’t have the chance to visit such a facility when I was a child. The facilities are well staffed, can accommodate birthday parties and they provide a comfortable and clear space for adults to watch their children play.
