Booking an Appointment:
For short notice bookings (less than 36 hours) please call at 1-877-214-2828 to speak with a booking agent. Normally they require 36 to 48 hours’ notice before each booking.

When making an appointment, clients need to provide exact dates and times when childcare is required (they generally only make appointments up to one month in advance). After the booking request(s) are processed, the agency will start looking for a nanny that is most suitable for the client’s needs. Nannies are selected based on their experience caring for children based on the client’s child’s age group and all of the nannies are thoroughly pre-screened. Once a nanny is selected, Nannies on Call will call and email the client to confirm the appointment. The confirmation email will contain the nanny’s full name and a short biography.
- Nannies can administer medication with written parental consent.
- Nannies can also take children out for walks and outings on foot, by transit, or by taxi with written parental consent.
