You can join us with your own nanny for free early years education…
If you have preschool children and your own amazing care giver, you can join The Nanny Company and take part in our free early childhood education service. Whether you have a baby, a nearly school aged child or both, at The Nanny Company we are focused on helping your children lay strong learning foundations which we believe gives every child the confidence to reach their full potential.
The ‘in home’ early years programme is based around nurturing responsive relationships, play, exploration and discovery. Working with each child’s unique strengths and interests. ‘In home’ differs from other childcare with individual attention and a programme which is fitted to the child, rather than the child fitting with the programme. We firmly believe that this care and education should be available to all children.
Joining as part of our education service would mean you are visited by one of our Visiting Teachers who is trained in early childhood education. They would help your caregiver break down the early childhood education programme for each of your children. They would discuss each child’s interests and strengths and help build a programme based on this. They would be on hand to offer strategies and advice. Also as part of our education programme your caregiver and children would have access to our fortnightly playgroups.
The Nanny Company can claim the non-income tested ‘Early Childhood Education’ allowance for you and also help you understand if you are eligible for any WINZ subsidies, such as low income allowances, allowances for postnatal depression, stress or other medical illness.
The Nanny Company also offer a payroll service to take the stress out of paying an employee.
