Why Choose Karitane®?

Karitane® is the new name for the Karitane Nurses and Nannies Bureau.  Karitane® is a well-established childcare agency that has been successfully placing top-quality nannies, Karitane nurses and maternity nannies in fabulous positions since 1978. We provide live-in, daily, casual, temporary and overseas nannies, Karitane nurses, maternity nannies and babysitters for roles in private homes throughout New Zealand and overseas.

We understand that choosing someone to help care for your children is an important decision. That’s why Karitane® takes time to understand exactly what type of care you’re looking for. Above and beyond the qualifications and experience that all our nannies, Karitane nurses, maternity nannies and babysitters must have, we look for personal qualities that are key to a successful nanny relationship: respect, integrity, reliability and a genuine love of children. Karitane® can provide you with a helping hand, any time.  

“Carol was amazing. She was such a friendly presence in a very stressful time in my house.  Carol’s experience showed she was able to change the sleeping and feeding routine for my baby in a short time, and in a really positive way. It was amazing and I wanted to say thank you for sending Carol.”
