Find out what programme & funding is available for your family...
Hop Skip Learn is our home-based education programme provided by KiwiOz Nannies. This supports our nannies & families to ensure the child's care comes first. This programme is funded by the Ministry of Education.
You can claim up to $100 a week per child. This subsidy is not income based although some conditions apply. The subsidies are only one of the many advantages of the programme. If you already have a nanny but want to join the programme, it is only $100 and with that you will receive reduced payroll fees and an employment agreement.
At KiwiOz Nannies rather than carrying out phone interviews all candidates are interviewed in person by one of our experienced recruitment consultants. We like to meet and interact extensively with a potential nanny so that we can recommend them with confidence to your family.

Join our education programme
You already have a nanny in place but would like to join our education programme and start getting funding? Talk to one of our consultants who will advise you further, then you and your children can start enjoying the numerous benefits of the programme in no time.
Performance appraisal service
Your nanny has been with you for a year but you are not sure how to conduct an appraisal review and what the follow-up steps may be. A KiwiOz Nannies recruitment consultant can facilitate the interview and then update the employment agreements and job descriptions on your behalf.
Stay in touch with your child's learning
Nannies on our Hop Skip Learn programme are using EDUCA, our online and secure portfolio to record their charge's learning. EDUCA is a great tool to keep track on the children's learning and it is simple to use. Our Hop Skip Learn families can choose to connect their family members on to their EDUCA account so that nobody misses out on the amazing updates their nannies upload monthly!

Nanny of the Year Awards
