Quality Childcare & Education


Nurture@Home is a local childcare service based in the Tasman region providing boutique early childhood care & education through our team of nurturing Educators who are infused with a love of learning; providing safe, heart-led, loving, respectful and stimulating environments for all children to blossom. We believe Home is where the Heart is and that the child is at the Heart of the matter. Being informed by current and ongoing research and inspired by the philosophies of Magda Gerber, Janet Langsbury and the believing in the importance of Nature Play we focuses much of our attention on developing relationships and attachments with children in their early years and creating authentic partnerships with our Educators and families.

Our homebased service is licensed by the Ministry of Education (exactly the same as centre based services), and we are passionate about our active programme of activities full or rich learning experiences, which include our weekly Playschools, NatureEXPLORERS sessions and regular outings within the local community, allowing lots of opportunities for children to explore, learn and socialise. Time and time again research shows that group size and child to adult ratios are key factors in quality outcomes for children. Our nurturing Educators empower your child in a positive and nurturing environment, with small group ratios that provide tamariki with the opportunity to unfold and learn at their own pace and develop to their fullest potential.

If you would like to join us at our FREE Playschools; or maybe it’s quality childcare you are looking for; or perhaps you are interested in an exciting career as an Educator through our supportive service… Contact us or find us on Facebook. Our friendly team from Nurture@Home Childcare would love to chat to you to answer any of your questions.

educators to care for children in a positive and nurturing environment.


We have lived overseas and in other cities in New Zealand and I can easily say that Nuture@Home has been the best childcare provider we have used. All the staff are so enthusiastic and keen and most importantly child-focused. In fact, we have referred many of our work colleagues and friends on to Nuture@Home as we have been so impressed by every aspect of their organisation. They pay particular attention to a child’s individuality and are delighted with their developments and achievements. We like Nurture@Home’s approach where time and care are invested in each child ensuring they thrive in their home environment.

My son will miss his outings to play-school very much when he begins school later this year!
