About Nest Kids and Co.

Nest Kids & Co is an Auckland based Babysitting and Nanny agency as well as providing relievers for early childcare centres.


Our main goal is to follow our strong approach to provide quality childcare meeting the specific needs of families. Through our passionate founder and managing director, Sarah Martin, an experienced professional in Childcare also a mother of two herself; Parents and child care providers can be assured of a quality service. Her personal touch merging life experiences in the industry combined with a mother’s perspective serves as the key to establishing a foundation of long lasting relationships.

Nest Kids & Co aims at giving you peace of mind. While you leave your young ones with a child carer from our agency be sure that your baby is in safe hands. Every nanny, babysitter or early childcare reliever have gone through an extensive selection process.  Not everyone who applies makes it into our books. Candidate Interviews take close to an hour, then we fully identity check, police vet, background check and verify their credentials. Not to mention discuss their suitability in a childcare role to past employers and referees.


Professional Nannies

Our online babysitting services are a great affordable way to connect families with babysitters through social media, providing video profiles, badges with qualifications, police checks, first aid certificates, repeat requests from families and reviews.
