PAUA Poppetts Nannies

PAUA Poppetts is the first choice for Auckland’s Nannies and childcare workers, specialising in helping you find work with great families!

We have many Nannies registered with us who return to PAUA Poppetts again and again over the years because of the professional, friendly service we provide. We understand the unique needs of Nannies and the families who wish to employ them and have many great job opportunities with the best families in the wider Auckland area. Our goal is to find you a position that will turn into a satisfying career.

We invest in our staff and continue our relationship with you long after placement. Our staff are always open to Nannies who want us to look over contracts, discuss employment issues, introduce us to their charges or simply come in to say hello. We do not advertise our Nanny jobs online – this ensures we find the right Nanny for the family.  We like to find the perfect fit for you and our families.  Feel free to contact us anytime to find out what jobs are currently available.

Benefits of working with PAUA Poppetts:

Full range of employment options

PAUA Poppetts is able to offer a wide range of employment options to suit every stage of your career – full or part time permanent positions, temporary roles, evening babysitting, overseas and Nanny Plus 1 roles for Nannies who wish to take their children to work with them.

A different approach:  Unlike other agencies, we see you as our clients too. We’ll take the time to find out what you want in a position and are committed to finding the best employment situation for you. We’ll consult with you at every step of the recruitment process, providing advice on salaries and job expectations and help with interviewing and CV’s. We also offer you ongoing support following placement.

PAUA Poppetts Educational Programme

This is a free programme for preschoolers funded by the Ministry of Education and under the umbrella of the Licensing Criteria for Home Based Education and Care Services, where a Visiting Teacher will come and visit the children and Nanny once a month. This is valuable as it provides another perspective for the children and can be a support to both the Nanny and the family. During the visit they will take photos of the children which they use later to write Learning Journeys on the children and the Nanny. The Visiting Teacher will discuss with the Nanny the interests of the children and how to extend this to enhance their learning and development.

We provide a range of educational resources which are changed monthly. Through the PAUA Poppetts Educational Programme, if eligible, you can claim Work and Income childcare subsidies or the 20 hours ECE funding. We also have playgroups and monthly trips into the wider community that we encourage the Nannies to be a part of. The PAUA Poppetts Educational Programme has no joining or start-up fee.


Educa is our secure e-portfolio system that allows parents, and Educators/Nannies access to the “Pathway of Learning” stories written by the Visiting Teachers. When you log onto Educa, both you and your Educator/Nanny can see the stories and also upload photos and comments. You can access Educa via the computer, but if you have a smart phone you can access it through the Educa app as well. All Educators, parents and Visiting Teachers linked to the child will be able to take an active part in creating a wonderful report of the child’s early years.

Contract and Job Description

You need to have a contract in place with your Nanny as this makes things clear about what is expected for both you as the employer and the Nanny as the employee. We can provide a template for you to alter as you need, along with an example of a job description (the details of these are between you and the Nanny) or you can create one.

Comprehensive post placement service

PAUA Poppetts has employment contracts and job descriptions that have been developed specifically for Nanny roles. Our expertise enables us to provide advice on specific employment issues in the industry and we offer a number of training programmes enabling you to further your knowledge and experience.


We can highly recommend the quality service of ThankYou Payroll to take care of all your payroll needs including tax, holiday pay, ACC etc.  Check out their  website or phone 0800 895 146.
