Our Story

We are incredibly proud, passionate and excited about Nurture@Home – Quality Childcare & Education – here is our story.

Nurture@Home Quality Childcare & Education, was launched in September 2014 and our team has grown quickly. We have wonderful Educators and families under our ‘umbrella’ of support and we value each and every one of them!

Having over 30 years experience in early childhood education, with the last 12 being involved in homebased care, we are passionate about what we do and are driven to provide quality education and care. We love being there for Educators & Families, supporting them in this valuable role that they play each day in what we believe is laying foundations for the future!

We offer professional development opportunities on parenting and child development topics and are happy to help and support families with their childcare needs. We also offer career opportunities working as an Educator for kindred souls who love children (or perhaps may not have thought of this before until you have had your own children). Then we are here to provide guidance and support as you embark on a new career. We believe that HOME is where the heart is and that tamariki are the heart of the home.

Nurture@Home Quality Childcare & Education is an alternative to centre based childcare, offering small group sizes with a maximum of 4 children under the age of 6 and never more than 2 children under the age of two (unless siblings), in the Educators own home or in the families home.

Approved by the Ministry of Education, Nurture@Home upholds the Licensing Criteria for Home-Based Education and Care Services (2008) and the Education (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008.

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.
