|With so many nanny agencies in
Canada it can be overwhelming to know who to turn to and who you
can trust in finding the right nanny for your family. Nanny
agencies in Canada like everywhere else in the world donít
often have the best reputations. Many parents fear that an
agency is just after their money and not interested in the
security and wellbeing of their children and a successful match
of nanny to family. It is important that you get a good feeling
from the agents you speak to. Always make sure that you speak to
someone from the nanny agency directly and make sure they are
interested in getting as much information as possible about your
family, the position and the type of nanny you need.
If at all possible go to a local agency. That way you can meet
with an agent face to face. So if you live in Vancouver, do try
to find a nanny agency in Vancouver.
When looking for the right nanny agency in Canada, remember that
no matter how many years of experience the nanny agency has, you
are the expert when it comes to the needs of your family and the
type of care you require for your children. You want to hear the
nanny agency ask you lot of questions, appear genuinely
interested and offer ideas of local nannies that may suit your
Below is a list of questions you should ask a nanny agency you are
1. How many years has your nanny
agency been established and how many placements have they made?
2. Do placements often break down and if so what is the main cause?
3. How do you vet the families that come to the nanny agency?
4. Does the nanny agency work as a local nanny agency or does it service
all of Canada?
5. Does the nanny agency work only with local nannies? For instance if
you are based in Toronto does the nanny agency only deal with nannies in
Toronto or do they work with nannies from other cities?
6. Does the nanny agency interview all their nannies personally?
7. Do they contact the nannies previous references?
Of course as many questions as you fire at your
Canadian nanny agency you must
always go with your instinct. Any uneasy feeling about an agent or nanny
agency, then the nanny agency is not for you.
Many nanny agencies in Canada provide
referral services nationally or regionally and may be found in multiple
