Our Story

Nannies Plus is a licensed Early Childhood provider that started in 2006 in Wellington, working alongside the very successful Wellington Nannies College (now New Zealand Career College) that delivers training and qualifications to aspiring nannies.

More than a decade on, we’ve seen significant periods of growth and have become one of the most trusted nanny services in the country. What began as one chapter in Wellington, has now begun spreading its wings to other parts of New Zealand. Since being acquired by the Mother’s Nest Ltd Early Childhood Education Group, we’ve opened an Auckland branch. So, we now offer the same great services for nannies and families in two of New Zealand’s biggest cities.

Mother’s Nest Ltd, owner of Nannies Plus, is a family-owned and professionally operated group. We are passionate about early childhood education and giving little minds the best start in life by providing positive learning environments.


At Nannies Plus we know that whānau and home are fundamental to a child’s wellbeing and development.  We celebrate the uniqueness of each child, and encourage a love of learning, exploration and creativity within your own home.

Our well-trained nannies capture the many growing moments of your child and learnings in an individual journal. As nannies provide one-on-one care, they are best placed to understand your child’s strengths and needs, and develop a learning programme around this. Nannies are well-supported and regularly trained to keep up to date with industry ‘best practice’.

Our mission

To empower each child’s learning and development through the provision of a high quality education programme within the home environment.

We strive to ensure our nannies feel confident and supported in their role of nurturing young children in the home.
