Here at Little Life our main goal is to provide quality support for families and educational facilities by providing trained, friendly, passionate and loving Nannies and Teachers who are going to fit right in and nurture and develop children like they were their own.


We ensure every candidate we employ has the right background, experience and qualifications that will enable them to be the best they possibly can be when caring for your child.


We do extensive vetting/qualification checks for peace of mind on all candidates prior to taking them on.


All of our Nannies have at least 6 month’s experience and/or childcare qualifications.


All of our Teachers are either fully registered and trained or are in their last years of training.

Jo-anne Allen

As a previous qualified Early Childhood Teacher of 5 years, I have now found my passion for Recruitment, and have been recruiting in childcare for the past two years. I am passionate about placing quality teachers into quality roles and believe that the first five years of a child’s life are the most important.  


In my spare time I love exploring new parts of NZ with my partner and dog, as well as catching up with friends over a coffee or glass of wine.
