Where To Find A Nanny In Calgary

20101014 nosehill - 09

So desperate are people when they look for a nanny in Calgary, there are anecdotes of moms trying to steal nannies they see at the playground or in the halls at school.

Seriously. They walk right up and offer more money than they’re currently getting paid. The search for reliable childcare is a bloodsport in Calgary.

Traditional daycare facilities have long waiting lists and the corporate culture in Calgary often has these facilities on retainer. So they were out.

Dayhomes are popular options in Calgary. These are mostly stay-at-home moms with unlicensed facilities (licenses are not a provincial requirement). They’re at home with their kids and just hang a shingle to pick up some extra cash looking after other kids in the basement.

It’s a stark contrast from the childcare experience in Vancouver where our son was at a rec centre with Early Childhood Education certified instructors. After visits to a number of dayhomes in our areas (and tragic stories in the news) we scratched that option.

So, it comes down to trying to find a nanny in Calgary.
