Johnathon Lee Robichaud, 30, of Central Saanich has been charged with one count of sexual interference, two counts of invitation to sexual touching and one count of making sexually explicit material available to a child.
The investigation began when a mother reported that her sons, who are both under the age of 10, may have been abused by the family nanny, according to a police statement. Police later identified a third alleged victim.
"We all have a responsibility to protect children and we need the public's help in assisting us."
They say they also identified another victim through the material gathered, and say theres "compelling" evidence that there are even more child victims who have not come forward.
Robichaud has lived in the Victoria region for a "significant period of time," police say and has worked or volunteered with youth groups, church groups, child-care facilities and before-and-after-school programs. He's also advertised his nanny services online.
Robichaud is currently bound by conditions that bar him from contact with any children under the age of 16 and from visiting recreation centres, daycares, schools, churches, parks or any other place frequented by children.
Investigators say they're unable to provide any specifics about the charges against Robichaud, but they're asking anyone whose child has been alone with him to call police at 1-250-475-4756.

Saanich police say Jonathon Lee Robichaud is facing one count of sexual interference, two counts of invitation to sexual touching and one count of making sexually explicit material available to a child.
Police said they began an investigation after a parent came to investigators with allegations their nanny had committed sexual offences against their two young sons.
Police identified Robichaud as the suspect, and during the investigation discovered a trove of sexually suggestive images involving children.
Police are asking anyone with information on Robichauds work and volunteer history to contact them at 250-475-4756.
Detectives were able to identify another child, police said, and believe there may be other kids affected who have not come forward.
According to police, Robichaud has lived in the Greater Victoria area for some time, and has worked and volunteered in positions with youth groups, church groups, child care facilities and before-and-after-school care programs.
Robichaud has been released from custody, and is on court-ordered conditions not to be in contact with children under the age of 16, not to attend recreation centres, daycares, schools, churches or anywhere else a child might reasonably be.
Out of an abundance of caution, police are also asking anyone whose child has been alone with Robichaud to contact Saanich police at 1-250-475-4756.
