A Nanny Agency on a Mission
We're passionate about helping Auckland and Wellington based families maintain better work/life balances by providing quality and flexible in-home childcare solutions and long-lasting nanny placements.
Who We Are
KiwiOz Nannies have been providing and placing premier Nannies in Auckland and Wellington homes since 2002
In 2002 we launched KiwiOz Nannies in London with the opening of our first office and have been providing quality in-home childcare to New Zealand families since 2005. Although we have grown over the years we maintain our small business mindset and a strong family focus throughout our work. We have been fortunate to have developed a loyal client base that continue to recommend KiwiOz to colleagues and friends - a partnership that we truly value. In 2014 we opened our second New Zealand based agency in Wellington.
Families and nannies feedback- What they say about us
At KiwiOz Nannies, the entire team is dedicated to offer both families and nannies an easy placement experience. This is what our clients have had to say about us:
"The standard of candidates was very high and the service wonderful. I would absolutely recommend KiwiOz to both families and nannies." DH
