Nanny Perfect is a Canadian online nanny placement service that puts Canadian families in touch with locally-based nannies. Families can use our website to find and contact candidates matching their requirements, without having to deal with an agency and at a fraction of the cost of a regular nanny placement service. Search for matching nannies online, contact candidates to discuss requirements, and create a free profile to advertise your vacancy on our popular website.
A Canadian online service that connects families to local, pre-screen nannies and babysitters and other caregivers. Choose from many available candidates from Ottawa for all types of needs: occasional, regular, live-in, live-out. Each caregiver has a Mom reviewed detailed profile with contact details, references and background checks. Select, contact and hire with confidence at a fraction a nanny placement agency would charge. We also offer candidates for Special Needs, Senior Care, Pet Care and Housekeeping. Also available in French as SOSgarde.ca
