When working mom-of-two, Michelle Kelsey, started Nannies on Call in 2001, it was out of necessity — she couldn’t find trustworthy, high-end childcare for her daughters and it was impacting her life in a negative way. So, she created what she had longed for — a professional, easy-to-use, reliable nanny service. Since then, Nannies on Call has connected over 26,000 families with exceptional Nannies and placed over 1,800 Nannies.

In 2021, twenty years later, Nannies on Call has evolved to adapt to the ever-changing needs of both clients and Nannies. We recognize that there is an increased need for safe, health-conscious, reliable child care. At the same time, parents’ and Nannies’ roles have also changed — they have to be educators, as well as caregivers. While many families are familiar with our on call babysitting services, they may be unaware that we also offer full-time and part-time Nanny placements to fulfill their ongoing child care needs. Our Nannies on Call team assessed the situation and saw an opportunity to provide a solution — The Nanny Solution.

The Nanny Solution is made up of the same knowledgeable, experienced staff and offers the same high-quality Nannies on Call service. We recruit educated, engaging, and experienced Nannies, and offer families personalized childcare solutions to fit their unique lifestyles.

Michelle kelsey

Michelle founded Nannies on Call back in 2001, when her daughters were just two and four years old. As a working mother, she was struggling to find reliable, high-end childcare for her own two children, and immediately saw a business opportunity. Michelle holds a Bachelor’s of History and was originally planning on being a teacher, but coming from a family of entrepreneurs, she also knew that starting her own business someday was inevitable. Twenty years later, Nannies on Call has grown to include The Nanny Solution, and continues to ensure parents have access to safe, flexible, and quality childcare. Michelle lives in Vancouver, BC and loves spending as much time outdoors as possible! She enjoys hiking, camping, and walking in the woods for hours, which is where she gets all of her new business ideas.
