Our Story

We are a boutique agency that is run by a close-knit and friendly team of Teachers, Placement Consultants and support staff who are passionate about providing reliable childcare and education to Families in Auckland and Wellington.

Our Nannies are part of our Dream Family and we support them through their entire career.

Family comes first

Many of us are parents ourselves and understand how important it is to find the right person fit for each of our Families. So we take the time to understand their needs so we can put forward Nannies that will suit each Family’s personality and lifestyle.

This bespoke service combined with our exceptional Nannies is what makes us unique and why both Nannies and Families alike stay loyal to us year after year.

As well as having comfort in knowing their children are receiving the best care and education, Dream Families also benefit from a range of other services including babysitting, payroll support, thorough background checking and performance appraisals.

Dream Nanny is literally the most delightful agency I have ever worked with.  They are kind, caring and helpful, always.  I have always been matched with wonderful Families because the Dream Placement Consultants take care to listen to my needs and what I look for in a role.  You guys do an incredible job, thank you and keep up the amazing work!!!

Supporting our Nannies

Our Nannies are proudly and passionately career Nannies and New Zealand’s best. We are committed to supporting them and do so by paying competitive rates and providing ongoing support through our highly-regarded Dream Education Programme - Nurture Play Learn, professional development, health benefits and regular social events.

Our philosophy

Our childcare philosophy is based on Te Whāriki and our shared vision for children to be competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society.

Our Nannies ensure that the five strands of Te Whāriki - well being, belonging, contribution, communication and exploration – are fostered in every child’s day to day learning.

Our history

We have been providing quality in-home childcare since 2002. We opened our Wellington office in 2014 and in 2017 we joined forces with Dream Au Pair and now work together to provide a more comprehensive solution to home-based childcare. In 2019 we launched Dream Educator, and we now offer families the complete trio of home based childcare options - Nannies, Au Pairs and In Home Educators.
