Research shows that little minds grow best at home.

Preparing little minds for big futures

Imagine your child being cared for in a warm and nurturing relationship with one special Educator or Nanny. With no more than four children in care at any one time, PORSE Educators and Nannies dedicate themselves to providing safe, calm and familiar environments.

PORSE in-home childcare is affordable, flexible and provides the best possible start for your child. Families who choose PORSE are assured their children will receive the most valuable gift to enhance their wellbeing ... quality time.

The value of positive relationships

Research in infant mental health and neurobiology over the last 30 years has proven beyond doubt that the early years are the most important in setting up children for lifelong success. And it is the quality of the relationships our children are exposed to that shape their experience of the world as they learn from those around them.

PORSE Educators and Nannies are passionate in their fundamental belief that ‘home is where the start is’. They benefit from ongoing support and free training from qualified trained early childhood education teachers. Twenty years of research and experience have supported PORSE in developing a rich and diverse community programme, which provides learning experiences and opportunities for social interaction outside of the home, offering the best of both worlds.

PORSE offers three main types of in-home childcare options:

PORSE Educators 

A PORSE Educator works from their own home, which is specifically set up as a dedicated in-home childcare environment. This allows for familiarity and stability, to meet the needs of your child and their individual habits and routine.


PORSE Nannies

A PORSE Nanny is the ultimate in one-to-one care, offering stability and security. Nannies work from your own home and are employed by you. If you're worried about processing wages, subsidies and third-party payments like KiwiSaver and IRD, you don't need to be. The PORSE payroll system can administer all of this for you.
