The Nanny Company is a licensed Early Childhood service, and meets the standards imposed by The Ministry of Education regulatory requirements.  We are licensed under the government Education (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008, which requires we follow all legislation set out in this document; this covers a raft of areas including curriculum delivery, and health and safety requirements for individual homes.

We are also reviewed in a three yearly cycle by the Education Review Office; they compile public reports on all licensed services.

We welcomed the Education Review Office in May 2019 to undertake their regular review of our service. This resulted in our service receiving the highest evaluation of “Very Well Placed”. The following are excerpts from the review team ERO report. We are thrilled with the findings! Note: the report below is for 1 of the 5 services The Nanny Company runs between Christchurch and Wellington. The reports are all the same other than the statistics (65169, 65181, 70101, 70129 & 70131)


“Children’s learning is enhanced by the many opportunities they have to:

  • learn about the wider world by attending playgroups and exploring community facilities

  • develop early literacy and mathematics concepts in everyday experiences

  • extend their strengths and interests and learning dispositions through the individualised programmes provided by the nannies.

Infants and toddlers and children with additional learning or health needs are well provided for in their own homes. Nannies closely follow the family routines and develop secure bonds with the children. Daily contact ensures information is shared in a timely manner. Nannies know the family’s culture, values and aspirations for their children and work very well to respect and respond to these.”

Here is a break down of how we used the Ministry of Education funding.
