(please move if in wrong forum)


I am in need of urgent childcare for tomorrow morning (yes on a sunday, right now it's saturday night my time). Long story short, the person I was expecting can't do it and I have a job interview I really cannot cancel.


I am looking for recommendations for any agencies or professional companies that babysit--I have no experience with this, all our childcare has been with extended family members until now. I am quite scared to look on craigslist or something like that.


Has anyone in the Vancouver area have any experience with any agencies that can supply someone with less than a day's notice?

 (I don't have friends i can leave her with, ones I have are too far away). Any advice or recommendations--thanks.

Try Nannies-On-Call ... I'm not sure if they do short notice, but if not, they might have suggestions for you.  Good luck!
