Boutique Education & Care

Nurture@Home is a local childcare service that covers the Nelson Tasman and Marlborough regions 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.

Need Childcare?

Our passionate team of heart-led Educators are carefully chosen and whom we believe will provide the level of nurturing care we expect! All of our Educators are safety checked and are genuinely passionate about providing quality early childhood care and education.

Our Home Educators/Kaipoipoi work from their own homes with a maximum of four children, creating a positive, nurturing environment and provide a rich programme to support each child/tamaiti to achieve their full potential.

Our Nanny Educators/Kaipoipoi attend to your childs/tamaiti needs, supporting their learning and development in the comfort of the childs/tamaiti own home. Nanny Educators/Kaipoipoi can also work alongside the families/whanau in a support role.

Our FREE Playschools

Children learn best through play and that is why we provide two Nurture@Home Playschools EVERY WEEK during term time.

Playschools provide lots of socialisation opportunities for children and adults and our Playschools are open to anyone in the community so you are welcome to join us.

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education and passionate about our active programme of activities full or rich learning experiences. Time and time again research shows that group size and child to adult ratios are key factors in quality outcomes for children. Providing tamariki with the opportunity to unfold and learn at their own pace and develop to their fullest potential.

Become an Educator

Enjoy the benefits of being self employed, make life-long friendships and a great income all while being involved in children’s learning as part of a great team.

Working as an Educator with Nurture@Home as your support network you become part of a fun, nurturing and professional team, caring for children in your own home as an at-home Educator or in the families home as a Nanny Educator. You can choose to work part-time or full-time and choose hours to suit your own family.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in joining our team.


At Nurture@Home Childcare & Education we are passionate about supporting children to connect with nature and Papatuanuku.

At our weekly NatureFocus the environments offer a variety of possibilities for exploring, planning, reasoning & learning as the children are able to study, discover, investigate and search. Developing a sense of belonging in their community and an attachment with nature.

At Nurture@Home Childcare & Education the children’s relationship to Papatūānuku is based on whakapapa, respect and aroha.

Today at NatureFocus we went on a bug hunt, discovering all sorts of creepy crawlies. We found the coolest sticks and stones, and the kids even pointed out some beautiful birds.

Our adventure didn't stop there! We sang songs, jumped in muddy puddles, and got our hands and gumboots wonderfully dirty. It was a morning of laughter, learning, and exploring nature.

Nicki is so kind caring, gentle but also fun!

“I put my daughter in with Nicki when she was 15/16 months old and it was the best choice I could have made. My daughter only goes 2 days a week but she settled in so easily and quickly as her educator / kaipoipoi is so kind caring, gentle but also fun! Nicki made my daughter and I both feel so comfortable from the get go! This was so important to me as I just had a new baby and was so worried about how my daughter would get on with so many changes happening.

The experiences they get with nurture at home is awesome, such a cool environment for our tamariki with lots of exciting activities. I love how they experience time with their familiar small groups and get the chance to experience learning with large groups of tamariki too. The communication between parent and educator is such an underrated part of this childcare service. I love reading the learning updates from her teacher and seeing the photos of my daughter experiencing new things, learning, making friends and having fun. Definitely recommend placing your child with one of the awesome home based educators that work for Nurture at Home. I couldn’t be happier”


Get started yesterday

Beautiful company to work with, in fact describing Nurture@Home as a company doesn’t feel right at all – it’s closer to being a large extended family in every sense & words can’t describe how amazing this is. I am thankful and blessed to be part of such a kind, loving, nurturing, heart centered, supportive community. I have truly flourished in my time with Nurture. If your considering either placing your pride and joy with Nurture@Home or becoming an Educator yourself, the only advice I have to offer is – GET STARTED YESTERDAY – because this is a fabulous opportunity & people are clicking on to it. Spaces do not hang around long! Thank you for all of the love, support & opportunities you provide us with as Educators Nurture, we adore you.
