Why Nanny Academy?


Compliance with industry best practices and standards

Nanny Academy complies with industry best practices, code of ethics and employment standards.

Best-in-class nannies, au pairs and caregivers

In addition to providing custom care, the diverse background and experiences of our caregivers make them an invaluable asset and solution to our client families by also offering new perspectives and cultural learning. We attract best-in-class caregivers through honest business practices, fair and professional offering of quality placements, services, support and incentives.  

We understand your needs–we've been there

We can truly relate to each of our clients and understand their family needs because our daily life includes the same obstacles and challenges in caring for kids, aging parents and loved ones. We know finding great help can be life-changing and the right caregiver not only helps to alleviate stress, but is invaluable in improving work/home/life balance, resulting in greater happiness for you and your family. Only one simple rule applies in our 360° selection process: would you hire them to care for your loved ones?

Training and Support

Our training program is designed to set up each nanny / caregiver / au pair for success, so they can fit well with the chosen family and also the Canadian lifestyle. Enrollment into the program occurs before their start date, which is composed of various modules including First Aid Training for baby, child and/or adult by a recognized organization (as appropriate to caregiver background and family needs).

By the same token, each family is provided with a starter kit to ensure a smooth beginning, and ongoing post-placement support targeted towards a positive experience and lasting relationship with the caregiver.

Professional and Reliable Service

Your best interest is our priority! We apply equal diligence in screening both families and caregivers so that each placement is fair and mutually beneficial. We take pride in our services and our satisfaction is derived by yours. Unlike other matching services, we do not allow anyone to post their professional profiles or job postings without personal screening by our team of professionals.

We strive to be transparent in conducting our business. During needs assessment for your family, we will first provide guidance to determine if homecare is the best solution, and if, for whatever reason,we cannot meet your specific needs, we will make other suggestions to ensure your needs are fulfilled in a timely manner.

Respect for your privacy

As consumers ourselves, we respect the importance of your privacy. As such, it is safeguarded by our business model which has been designed to handle your personal information carefully and securely. Your personal information will not be shared with, or resold to any parties who are not related to the placement and processing. 

Efficient and real-time communication

In order to provide you with real-time accessibility and communications through your preferred channel (Phone, Email, Skype, Text), Nanny Academy does not adhere to typical office hours.This allows us to inform youas soon as there is any progress on your application, and even after placement to ensure you are fully satisfied. We believe effective communication is the key to proactively preventing problems and strive to maintain strong, long-term relationships with each of our client families and caregivers through ongoing communication and sharing of information.

More value for your money

In comparison with other agencies, you will find that we provide more quality caregivers, professional services, training and support (pre- and post- placement) at more reasonable service fees.
