WELCOME TO NURTURED AT HOME - NANNIES PLUS

Nurtured at Home started up in 2014, providing homebased care and education for preschool children, and we’ve been on an awesome ride ever since. From our relatively small beginnings at home to now covering all of Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne, Taranaki, Palmerston North and recently purchasing Nannies Plus in Wellington, we’ve stayed true to our Philosophy and Guiding Principles which essentially is to recognise children as our first priority. In addition to this, we strive to provide an exceptional experience for our community of parents and nannies, and we would like to thank our community for joining us and continuing to support us.

We hope that for those of you considering becoming part of the Nurtured at Home – Nannies Plus team, as a parent or as a Nanny, that you join us and allow us to earn the right to partner with you every day and we welcome you to become a part of our incredible journey.

    We made the decision to purchase a Nanny service based in Wellington, providing Nurtured at Home with an alternative option to quality homebased care and education.  We rebranded the service to Nurtured at Home – Nannies Plus with new logo and website.

    This month also saw us open in the Taranaki region as we had received enquiries over previous months.  Again, we have been warmly received and the region is growing strongly.

    When we purchased the Nanny service, we also retained Holley as a Community Consultant.  We’re pleased that Holley stayed with us as she has a wealth of experience in the marketing, recruitment and placement of Nannies and she has continued to grow our service with a smile.

    We just collected our 32nd Nurtured at Home sign-written car this week. We are excited to continue to grow at this rate – that’s 1 new vehicle every two months. As ongoing changes in the homebased and Nanny sector continue, with services closing, merging or selling, Nurtured at Home and Nurtured at Home-Nannies Plus has remained a privately owned family-based quality service, focussing on what’s important to us: providing a quality service committed to children being at the centre of every decision we make. Our continued growth is evident of our quality and also our new Suzuki Swift!

    Nurture a love of learning for all those associated with Nurtured at Home - Nannies Plus, through ongoing research, quality resources, best practice and being part of the community within which we exist.

    To engage in partnerships within Nurtured at Home - Nannies Plus and the wider national and international communities, to share our combined knowledge, resources and passion to set the foundation for each individual child to reach their full potential.

    To provide a nurturing, safe place to work where people are valued and true partnerships are fostered through mindful practice.

    To be a leader in best practice, and to mentor and engage with communities to raise the quality of Early Childhood Education.

    To be altruistic in a meaningful way by supporting causes that recognise and nurture the importance of our youngest children in society.
