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!

My Jasper Nanny Team

Our experienced fun, outgoing nannies are exceptional, reliable professionals with a passion for safely exploring & sharing our great Rocky Mountain outdoors.
Hi, I’m Frixie. I am a mother to a boy that just became a teen in summer '22. I have lots of experience babysitting children in our neighbourhood especially when my son was still in grade school. I truly love taking care of kids. How I wish my son had other siblings too but just having his friends and cousins around just makes us like a big family like we would always wanted. Nothing would make me happier than take care of kids and have fun times together. I am originally from the Philippines and speak Tagalog and English. I’d love to meet and get to know your family.
Hi, I'm Daralynn. I am a long time Jasper resident and I've recently retired from a railway career. I love the mountain lifestyle and am honoured to call our beautiful national park home. I've been a member of The Borzoi Club of Canada for 20 years. This is my favorite breed but all dogs are close to my heart. I love walking and dog sitting and have recently joined My Jasper Nanny in the winter of 2022. I have a large family of nieces and nephews and enjoy spending time with children. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
My name is Sue and I am a mother of 2 wonderful grown children. I have a degree in early childhood education and have worked in daycares for over 20 yrs. When I'm not working, I enjoy the outdoors, beaches and lakes. As a dog sitter, I like the dogs to feel part of my family. I have 2 dogs and a dog friendly cat.
Hey! My name is Mason, I moved from Manitoba to live in Jasper in the summer of 2022. I currently work at Marmot Basin in the retail shop, and at the Jasper Sky Tram in the summers. In my spare time I enjoy being outside hiking, bike riding or snowboarding. I’ve had many pets over the years and would love to play with and look after your dog! I’ve had experience raising puppies and will ensure your pet is properly cared for while you enjoy Jasper! If your pet requires lots of play I'll see to it that they’re properly played with so that they’ll be sleeping well! I miss my golden retriever Bandit back home, so I’m very excited to meet you and your puppy dog!
Kayla- Hi, I’m Kayla and I’m here to take care of your sweet children. I just moved to Jasper in January of 2023 so I could train for my level 3 in ski instructing. I work at Marmot Basin and at the local daycare. My passions are always learning more about children and their interests. I always believe in using the flight method, which is doing activities based on the children’s interests and that’s what I’ll do for your children. Right now, I am going to school to get my level 2 in Early Childhood Education. Two of my main passions is skiing and travelling around the world.
I’m Tif, I come from France and I recently arrived in Jasper for the '22-'23 winter season. I speak French and English. I would love to walk dogs, I enjoy walking in nature, so it will be a pleasure to have company. I like every kind of animals, I think they are very smart and kind. Also, I like climbing, snowboarding, travel and cook. Hope to see you soon
Hello, my name is Thea. I’m one of My Jasper Nanny's younger nannies, but I have a lot of childcare experience. I graduated with honours in 2018. I’ve babysat infants as young as 6 months old and really enjoy children of all ages. I have been babysitting since I was 12 and have lived in Jasper my whole life. I love looking after kids and being active. I’m super outgoing and energetic with kids. I became a my Jasper nanny in the spring of 2018.
Hello! My name is Larissa and I’ve been living in Jasper for two years. I’m originally from Ontario and graduated three years ago with a degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, & Behaviour. I currently work in retail fashion and spend my downtime hiking (ideally with a pup!), doing yoga, reading books from the library, and weaving traditional mandalas. My childcare experience began as a performance-based clown on a family farm when I was a teenager. I then volunteered for many years in a Children’s Hospital and babysat so extensively that I became good friends with a handful of families. Since then, my sisters have had children and I’ve spent countless years loving them. As for animals, absolutely everything is better with a furry friend!
Hi, I'm Carla and I'm here to take care of your lovely child or your sweet dog. Each nature walk, game, craft or other activity I do is tailored specifically to the needs and interests of YOUR child. If you'd like to add in play time for your child with a sweet and gentle dog, just let me know, as I have a dog who loves all people from toddlers on up. Each walk (or other dog activity) I do is tailored specifically to the needs of YOUR dog. If you're also looking for social time for your pup, just let me know, and I can bring my dog along too. I want you to be able to enjoy yourself with the comfort of knowing that everything's taken care of, and that we'll be having fun too!
Hi, I‘m Lilli! I’m from Germany. I graduated high school this year and am now doing work and travel in Canada. I joined my Jasper nanny in the winter of 2022. I have a younger brother that I watched a lot since I was 14-years-old as well as babysitting my neighbours' children. I worked as a life guard and a horse-riding instructor for over a year, where I worked with kids from age 3 and upwards. I'm a true animal-lover, having grew up surrounded by animals. Back at home, I have a horse and a dog. Between caring for them, I love looking after my friends' dogs when they're out of town. I love nature, hiking, baking, skating, reading & swimming. I‘m looking forward to meeting you!
Hey! My name is Danielle and I’m originally from Manitoba. I moved to Jasper at the beginning of summer 2022 and I’m loving it! I can’t wait to see this beautiful place during the winter season! In my spare time I love to be outside hiking, camping, going on the water. I also love to cook/bake, play guitar and piano! I am also bilingual, I speak French and English. I decided to join my Jasper Nanny because since moving out here I’ve missed being with children. I love their energy, youthfulness and joy! Back home I have 3 young foster kids that I consider as my siblings since they’ve been in my life for 8 years. Throughout the years I’ve babysat for families in my hometown. I love taking the kids on walks and seeing how many parks we can find. I also love playing any game their heart desires, if that’s tag, imaginary games or swimming. I’m really looking forward to meeting you and your family!

To me, two of the best things in life are dogs & the outdoors, which is why I am very excited to meet and spend time with some amazing dogs here in Jasper.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Reviews from My Jasper Nanny Clients

Outstanding service put me at ease instantly
If anyone is looking for an outstanding babysitting/nanny service in Jasper I would definitely recommend myjaspernanny.ca. We used their services for our daughter’s wedding. We were very pleased with Nanny Melody and I am someone with very high expectations! Melody put me at ease instantly. She was so good with our 7 month old grandson and went above and beyond to make sure we could relax and enjoy the wedding. Thank you Melody!!

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!

Absolutely amazing with our 8-month-old
Melody was absolutely amazing with our 8.5 month old daughter while we were out on a date night. She checked in beforehand and made sure she knew our daughter’s routines, preferences, and general timing for things like feeding, naps, and bed time. Furthermore, Melody took the time while we were out to send us texts letting us know how our daughter was doing and to let us know when she was down for the night. I would highly recommend Melody and the My Jasper Nanny service to any parent, especially those with infants, who are visiting Jasper but perhaps want a date night too.
