The Story Of Nannies on Call

by Michelle

As a parent you’ll eventually find yourself in the exact same place I did: about to miss an important event, faced with only my 14 year-old neighbor as a babysitting option for my two daughters – with my youngest less than a year old. I missed the event. Sat at home furious, then started planning. A year later – in 2001 – Nannies on Call was born.

I followed a simple mandate which quickly brought Nannies on Call right to the front lines of the childcare industry: make hiring a professional, trusted nanny service the best possible choice. Educate families about the difference between a Nannies on Call nanny and the babysitter down the street.

Nannies on Call has now grown to include a placement division, as well as new office locations in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Gatineau and Victoria. The company has consistently distinguished itself through innovation – we introduced families to a 24 hour paging system and were the first to require nannies to provide both a criminal record check and a current CPR/First Aid certificate. Our standards for expertise, safety, convenience and reliability are unmatched. Families know that a booking with Nannies on Call means their nanny will arrive pre-screened with a clear criminal record, bonded, and trained in first aid.

And most important? I would trust each of our nannies to care for my own children.
