Describe your business/product or service

“Nannysitters is the Okanagan’s Premier Childcare Agency”

Nannysitters specializes in connecting families throughout the Okanagan with fully-screened, local nannies to fulfill their childcare needs, whether temporary, part-time or full-time. Our on-call babysitting service means parents can even access our fabulous nannies for just a casual day or evening out too!

We also offer on-site event childminding for weddings, workshops and events.

How long have you been in business?

Proudly serving families throughout the Okanagan since October 2008!

Why did you start the business?

Nannysitters was created to fill a long-empty niche in the Okanagan childcare market. When I moved to Kelowna in 2007, my services as a nanny were in high-demand, and it quickly became apparent that parents needed a reliable source for highly professional local nannies and babysitters. Creating Nannysitters was a wonderfully natural transition from working in the childcare field for over 12 years, and also created a situation which now allows me to work from home so that I can spend as much time as possible being a mama!

Having worked in the childcare industry, as a nanny, and for many agencies before Nannysitters was launched, I had a solid base of experience and understanding of the industry on which to build.

Tell us why all parents need to visit your store or purchase your product/service?

Date nights, wine touring, doctor’s appointments, yoga classes, and even grocery shopping sometimes…. There are just some situations where it’s not appropriate or possible for parents to bring their children with them, and that’s where Nannysitters comes in!
Finding a reliable and mature babysitter can be extremely challenging, and even scary! Our nannies are mature, highly experienced, background-checked and first-aid certified, which means that your children will be in the best possible care during your absence.
