All bookings must be for a minimum of 4 hours, but clients are welcome to book a nanny for as long as needed. Bookings made 36-48 hours in advance can be completed online, but short notice bookings (<36 hours) must be arranged over the phone. They generally only make appointments up to one month in advance.
Rates & Fees
The total cost of hiring an on-call nanny includes the agency booking fee + the nanny’s hourly rate. They do not offer group rates.
Agency Booking Fees
A $33 + tax booking agency fee is incurred with every single booking appointment that is made.
The booking fee is charged to a pre-authorized Visa or MasterCard at the time of the booking. Clients will receive an e-receipt for the agency booking fees.
**Booking fees and bundle plans are non-refundable once charged.** Bundle plans are available for multiple bookings. They are valid for one year from the date of purchase and are non-refundable/non-transferable.
- For multiple bookings in the next year, clients can purchase bundles of agency booking fees (6 for $165 +tax, or 10 for $230 +tax).
- For yearly bookings, the Baroness Plan lets clients make up to 5 babysitting appointments per month for one year, for $525 + tax, covering the agency booking fee.
Nanny’s hourly rate
Nannies must be paid in cash or by cheque (CND) at the end of each appointment. The nannies will issue a paper receipt at the end of each appointment.
