Make a significant impact to a family in need.
Do what you love – caring for children
We are always looking for dedicated caregivers who can make a minimum one-year commitment – it’s an opportunity to make a real difference, by offering reassurance and stability to kids going through a very tough time.
As a Nanny Angel, you’ll provide four hours a week of free in-home care for her kids, easing her burden, offering peace of mind, and giving her children comfort and support when they need it most.

What’s in the activity bag?
Fun activities, support resources, craft supplies and more are your tools for engaging the kids in your care.
How it works
Getting started as a Nanny Angel is an eight-week process that will take you from the application stage to being fully trained in providing support to a family in crisis. Children’s needs during this difficult time are so important, so we take the time to prepare you completely.
Once your application and background check have been processed and your qualifications have been confirmed, we will provide you with specialized training in grief and bereavement, and in supporting children with anger, anxiety or behavioural issues related to their mother’s illness.
Before becoming a Nanny Angel, you will successfully complete our volunteer training, which includes modules in:
- Compliance and risk management
- Children’s grief and bereavement
- Talking to children about cancer and family dynamics in the home
We will match you with a family based on compatibility and location within the Greater Toronto Area (the City of Toronto, Halton, Peel, York, and Durham Regions). Transportation to and from visits will be reimbursed, a Nanny Angel Network shirt and light jacket will be provided, and we’ll supply you with all the toys and other resources you’ll need to engage and enrich children in your care.
You will provide four hours of childcare per week to the same family, offering safe, creative experiences to children at home and in their community. You will provide regular feedback to the client experience coordinator, be responsible for regular case notes, and maintain professionalism in all interactions with clients, other volunteers and the organization.
