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.

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.

Hi, my name is Anne. I am a 29 year old Dutchie who just came to live in Jasper this winter season 2021. I am excited to work with My Jasper Nanny!
Currently I am on a working holiday visa here in Canada. I visited Canada before and I fell in love with all the beautiful nature and saw myself living in Jasper, so that is what I did!
My experience with childcare started when I was a teenager, babysitting for my families two young boys. After that the neighbours would also ask me to watch their children when they would go out a night.
In my twenties I got several friends with little kids who let me play with them and watch them when they were away. I really adore my friends’ children!
I also did a workaway in Nova Scotia in 2019 wherei got to play with the kids together with a coworker.
I enjoyed these experiences very much.
For my love and experience with animals, I have had pets ever since I was young and untill recently we had 2 dogs at home! They were my best friends sometimes especially during covid lockdowns. I also have a friend with a dogwalking company and I have joined him on some of his walks!
