Families Guide To Success
We make it easy to find the perfect nanny/caregiver for your family. Hiring a full-time or part-time nanny or caregiver is like adopting a new family member. This is someone your children are going to see every day and likely fall in love with. It’s important that they’re amazing, trustworthy, caring, capable and completely the most incredible. This is no small task. That’s why we take it on.
We pre-screen nannies/caregivers/household personnel:
We only invite the best nannies or caregivers with the most extensive childcare experience to the interview table. To be interviewed, potential nannies and caregivers must provide:
- A completed and detailed application form
- Required at least 3 childcare-related references plus one written reference letter
- Proof of legal authorization to work in Canada (including photo ID)
- A Clear Criminal Record Check; Vulnerable sector check
- A current First Aid/CPR Certificate or proof of registration in an upcoming class
- Driver’s License and Driving Record (if applicable)
- Ensure that each nanny/caregiver has at least 12 months of experience (related) or education/training.
We interview each potential nanny or caregiver in person or video call. It’s important that we truly get to know our nannies and caregivers as human beings. So, we use this time to assess their values, personality, strengths and weaknesses.
We aim to match each family to the perfect childcare professional. When you can’t be with your child, we’ll find a local or overseas nanny/caregiver to provide the highest level of care possible. You can be rest assured that any nanny/caregiver you select from us is trustworthy, caring, and experienced. To get started, simply complete the family application form online and the criteria for your ideal nanny/caregiver, and we’ll handle the rest.
Hiring Step By Step
Determine Your Family Needs
Heritage Nanny will need to determine your family needs. What are your working hours? How many children do you have? Do you need a nanny who can drive and own a car? Do you require housekeeping? We ask you the right questions so you get the right and perfect match for your family.
Review Nannies/Caregivers Profiles

Our nannies/caregivers are not only childcare/elderly care providers, but majority of them have worked as teachers, nurses, special needs professional, and elderly care specialists. Heritage Nanny finds nanny/caregivers with great personalities, skills and interests that can click and match with you. Please contact us today to review our nannies/caregivers profiles and we could help you match those who fit your family needs.

What Our Families Are Saying
- Jennine @ Whitecourt
In our search for a nanny for our three children we chose to use the Heritage Nanny Agency. The placement coordinator walked us step by step through the process and answered all of our questions right away. She made the process very simple and easy for us to obtain a live-in-caregiver for our family. We were given many different resumes to look through based on our needs/wants and we were set up with phone interviews followed by skype interviews with our top choices. It was so much easier to make our decision when we were able to see and talk to the candidates in person. Following our decision Heritage Nanny did everything from helping us obtain a business number, doing up a contract for our nanny, helping us complete our LMIA including advertising for us on the job bank, and also walked our nanny through the process to obtain her work permit. Our caregiver safely arrived to our home at the end of January 2015 and is working out better than we could have ever imagined. She fits in so well with our family and has already established a strong bond with our children. I go back to work on Monday March 2, 2015 and our baby turns 3 months old on February 28, 2015. Knowing that my baby and other two children are going to be safe and well cared when I go back to work is such a great feeling. I have already recommended Heritage Nanny to several friends and am so glad things have worked out so great for my family.

We used Heritage Nanny services to find us a Nanny in Calgary. Heritage Nanny was prompt to start the process when we completed registration. Registration and fees payments are easy - any possible method is used. We were send couple of resumes and interviews were scheduled quickly. We interviewed both and were able to select one. Heritage Nanny helped us to complete LMIA and follow on process for permit transfer. Heritage Nanny has transparent services with no hidden charges. Service is prompt - we were supported and our calls were accepted on weekends too. I will recommend ( and have recommended) Heritage Nanny to anyone looking for a Nanny.

Heritage Nanny was an incredible resource for us during our convention in Edmonton, AB. From the moment we contacted them everything was handled with care and attention. They were able to provide us with fantastic on-site childcare including: Nannies, toys, crafts, snacks and sleeping mats. Their nannies were qualified and energetic, the kids had a blast. They were incredibly organized and professional, which made providing childcare for our delegates a breeze. We would highly recommend using Heritage Nanny for any event
