Nanny Placements

Selecting the right Nanny for your child can be overwhelming, we understand. A Nanny is not just a caregiver; they become a trusted companion, a role model, and a source of comfort for your child. The process of choosing a Nanny extends beyond qualifications—it's about finding a harmonious match, a person who aligns with your family's values. This decision is an investment in your child's future.

Our Testimonials

I felt so reassured

I was nervous to have someone outside of our family look after our little boy for the first time but after speaking with Nicole I felt so reassured.  She answered all my questions and made me feel much more at ease having a babysitter come over.

Sylvia P., Vancouver

Beyond impressed!

I am beyond impressed with the Sunhouse's exceptional service provided! The agency's attention to detail in matching us with the perfect Nanny was outstanding. Our Nanny Brittney is reliable, warm and nurturing and we love having her energy into our home.

Claire D., Vancouver

So grateful to have met

We’re so grateful to have met April and Nicole at a local playground one day as my maternity leave was ending. I was nervous to leave my son but he instantly took to April’s warm and fun-loving spirit. He looked forward to spending time with her and we could relax knowing he was in such caring hands.

Shelby L., East Vancouver

Such a great experience 

I had such a great experience with our babysitter Rachel, she was so energetic and our kids really liked playing with her while we were out for dinner.
