It is our top priority as a premium nanny agency to match families with nannies who are experienced, passionate, energetic, and engaging with children.

“West Coast Sitters has been life changing for our family. For years we used their sitters and then finally our family grew enough to have us transition into a nanny. The process of booking through them for sitters and for placing us with a nanny was so easy. Everyone they sent to our home was fantastic and the nanny we have through them has become a member of our family. Above and beyond comes to mind when I think of West Coast Sitters and their team and I will be forever referring them. Highly recommend!”

“We are so beyond pleased with Jana. She goes above and beyond every day. She takes the kids to activities every day and they have tons of fun. She’s very good with encouraging good behaviour – she’s turning them into proper human beings!

“In just a handful of months Jaycie has become an indispensable part of our family. The kids love her, we love her, and we are so grateful for your help in finding her. She is an absolute gem!

I’m also still so thankful for how easy you made the process for me. You took most of the stress out of a stressful situation! I’ve recommended West Coast Sitters to several people and will continue to do so.”

“West Coast Sitters has been extremely helpful with finding both of our amazing nannies! She is extremely professional and accommodating. The nannies were very experienced and I felt more than comfortable leaving my children with them. We have been working with West Coast Sitters for 2 years. I highly recommend West Coast Sitters and would use them again in the future should the need arrive.”

“West Coast Sitters is very passionate about connecting families with their ideal nanny and it definitely shows.  Mahsa really listened to what our needs were and found us a great fit!  Sydney (our nanny) is wonderful and has become our good family friend, our son adores her.  She is responsible, friendly and hardworking. We would definitely recommend West Coast Sitters to anyone looking for a nanny or babysitter.”
