Birth of an Idea

Travelling Parents

Melody became a first-time mom in 2014 when her little boy was born. Then in 2017, Melody & Peter became proud parents again…this time bringing their baby girl into this world.
On a holiday in Costa Rica, Melody & Peter wanted to go ziplining but were too anxious to simply hire a local babysitter. They realized Jasper visitors might have the same kind of apprehension and saw My Jasper Nanny as a much-needed service.
And My Jasper Nanny was born!

What Our Clients Are Saying

Reviews from My Jasper Nanny Clients

We wish we could take Melody on all our family trips!
My family of 5 just got home from an amazing trip to Jasper. Melody was incredible with our three kids ages 8, 6 and 3 the entire week. She was there on time every day and even stayed late a couple times with no issue. She went above and beyond, bringing the kids toys, books and stuffed animals, prepping meals, cleaning up and making sure they were active and happy during the day, including taking them swimming and other activities. Most of her time was spent with our 3 year old while we went on adventures with the older kids, but she played with them as well when we returned. She also cooked meals a few times and did bedtime routine on some evenings we went out for date night and cleaned everything up too! She even helped us get everything packed up the morning of our departure and helped make that craziness go as smoothly as possible. We definitely recommend Melody and My Jasper Nanny and wish we could take her on all our family trips! 🙏

It was worth every penny!
We hired Melody for my wedding at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. She watched my 7 month old baby from 10:00AM - 12:30AM. It was worth every penny! She was AMAZING with our baby. I highly recommend her.

The kids had such an incredible night!
Melody watched our kiddos this past weekend while we attended our close friends beautiful wedding at Pyramid Lake Resort. She came right to our hotel room with a giant bag of toys and the kids were instantly excited for a night with their first ever "babysitter"! The kids had such an incredible night of pizza, kayaking, hot tubbing and reading books! I was so happy when we arrived at the resort and the front office staff knew exactly who she was and assured me the kids were going to have a blast. She made us feel at ease with her awesome text updates and we spent the entire night bragging about how easy and helpful her service was for parents on a mountain getaway to Jasper! We will definitely be calling Melody again when it comes time to hit the slopes in the winter 🥰

Our dog Porter had a great time with Caleb
Our dog Porter had a great time with Caleb at Jasper Nanny. Melody was accommodating with us as we booked with less than 24hrs notice (it was early June in the shoulder season). We were able to explore the Hot springs while Porter got to play at Jaspers large dog park and hangout within someone’s home. She came back very tired. Jasper nanny has many options for dog sitting including at your hotel or campsite!
