Annies Nannies is your one-stop childcare agency offering nannies, in-home childcare educators and baby

At Annies Nannies we offer a curriculum that empowers children to be interactive learners actively engaging in and exploring the world around them. We implement the New Zealand early childhood curriculum Te Whāriki (2017) principles, strands, and goals as our guideline to sustain and improve outcomes for children. We will respond to the social and cultural values and beliefs of its community of children, families, educators, and teachers.
For families who are part of our Educational Programme we have extensive, diverse and relevant resource packs available for the continuing development of your child and added support for your nanny/educator. We ensure that when our qualified ECE teachers (Programme Coordinators) visit with your nanny or educator and child they bring resources that are pertinent to the interests of your child.
Children certainly benefit from going on excursions, as they have the opportunity to experience life beyond the home environment with their nanny, peers or family. Through taking a trip children can observe social systems and the roles people play within them, such as fire and police protection, traffic control, banking, shopping, and other relative systems. Excursions also provide children with first-hand experiences in which they can develop further in language and literacy, gaining new vocabulary and problem-solving skills.
The purpose of playgroup is to provide the opportunity for social interaction between educators/nannies and tamariki and also strengthening the relationships among Annies Nannies families. The Programme Coordinators provide the activities for each playgroup, advise the date, place and times by sending the group text message out one week prior to the event. The Programme Coordinator will carry out the health and safety check for that day at the designated playgroup location. The Nannies/Educators are required to sign in and out for each child attending.
There is a large number of benefits to the whanau over and above those that have already been mentioned. Annies Nannies objective is to make life as hassle-free and as worry-free as possible when it comes to your childcare options.
If your whanau is part of our Educational Programme, you can access 20 ECE hours for your 3-5-year-old tamariki. Being part of the Educational Programme also enables those that are entitled to WINZ childcare subsidies to access it with the children in the under 5's bracket. You can also access multiple birth hours through Annies Nannies and if you would like to know more about this please contact our friendly office staff. There is no administration fee to access 20 hours ECE, WINZ subsudies or multiple birth hours.
Storypark helps your child get the best start in life by personalising their learning. Relive important moments in a private online community that grows with them over time. Storypark includes our curriculum, framework or philosophies and is fully customised to align with our practice. It enables us to plan more effectively with our parents and between our team. We are able to record and respond to our parent's aspirations for their child/ren. Easily see your child’s learning journey, and their unique interests. Storypark enable the teaching staff and nannies/educator to capture and share learning as it happens. We are able to take photos, record videos and create beautiful stories.
Annies Nannies offers an optional payroll service. 3-5-year-old ensures your nanny's PAYE is kept up to date, looks after KiwiSaver if the nanny has opted in, and tracks sick leave and accrued annual leave. This is an added service and available to those that are a part of our Educational Programme. There is a small fortnightly administration fee to access this service. Please note, if employing a nanny for less than 30 hours per week you do not have to enrol in a payroll service, you can pay the nanny his/her gross amount.
Annies Nannies has provided me with high-quality nannies on the two occasions our family has required a nanny. The process of finding and selecting a nanny was made hassle-free. Annies Nannies provides great educational support at home for our nanny and provide wonderful resources for the boys and feedback on their progress. I couldn’t recommend Annies Nannies enough.
We have been using Annie’s Nannies for nearly five years while my twin girls were young and I am thrilled to be able to continue using the service for after-school care now that they are starting school. The team at Annies Nannies are so wonderfully warm and accommodating and their services have been vital to the functioning of our household. We have been able to utilise the WINZ subsidies and their nannies are just lovely. I highly recommend Annies Nannies!
