Certified Yoga Instructor
Melody is a certified Yoga Instructor, having studied at the Salt Spring Island Centre of Yoga. She loves teaching yoga & playing with children of all ages.
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.
Nervous Travelling Parents
The idea to start My Jasper Nanny was born out of personal experience while travelling.
After becoming a mother and travelling to Costa Rica, Melody saw how this service could provide parents with peace of mind as they enjoy personal time away from the children during holiday. She and her husband, Peter Scott, wanted to go zip lining while on holiday but did not feel comfortable about hiring a babysitter in an unfamiliar country. They realized Jasper visitors might have the same kind of apprehension and saw My Jasper Nanny as a much-needed service.
My Jasper Nanny is a childcare service provided to tourist & local families alike. We are a childcare agency that provides safe fun active care while babysitting. Our Jasper nannies combine care for your children with all the great children’s activities Jasper has to offer.
Round The Clock Care
Our nannies come to your Jasper accommodation in the town of Jasper as well as to the resorts outside of the town and in the park. Our nannies will entertain your children both daycare and in the evening. We accept children from newborn to 13 years of age.
Our experienced Jasper nannies are chosen for their fun, outgoing attitude along with the reliability you would expect from a childcare professional. The nannies will have experience in the childcare field, be over 18 years of age, have current 1st aid and CPR, a clear criminal record check and a love and passion for babies and children.
We conduct thorough background and reference checks on all our Jasper Nannies to ensure that your children have the best care possible and peace of mind for you.

Salutations, my name is Bree.
I arrived in Jasper from Toronto a year and a half ago and like most people that stumble upon this gem, I’ve grown roots and set up camp.
I am an artist so my favourite things to do include drawing and nail sculpting as I am a nail technician. I take delight in swimming (especially in Lake Bordeaux) and reading (English grammar enthusiast). How could I forget mountain biking!
I have a long history with animals; pet-sitting, dog fostering and dog training to name the few. I can confidently say that your pet will be more than safe with me.
