Nanny Angel - Childcare Volunteer   Aurora  East Gwillimbury  Georgina  King Township  Markham  Newmarket  Richmond Hill  Vaughan  Whitchurch Stouffville 
Nanny Angel Network, York Region - location varies, Childcare support
Volunteers are matched with families based on compatibility and their location within York Region.
Imagine a world where every mother with cancer receives the care needed for her children – so she has enough time to care for herself. The Nanny Angel Network offers rewarding positions for skilled childcare providers who are looking to make a difference. 
Nanny Angels provide free, specialized in-home relief childcare support for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, for those requiring palliative care and for families requiring additional relief during the bereavement period. The role is not that of a babysitter, housekeeper or personal assistant – Nanny Angels are there to engage and support the children. 
All of our Nanny Angels have two important things in common: their love of children and their commitment to provide excellent, dependable childcare for mothers with cancer.
