Welcome to Project Nanny

About Us


Project Nanny is a babysitting and nanny placement service providing childcare in the Otago and Canterbury region. We strive to help parents feel at ease by having reliable, trustworthy sitters and nannies available at just a click.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to change the way parents feel leaving their children at home with a sitter; giving them peace of mind so they can enjoy their time away. We aim to provide a memorable and convenient service for families. The contribution our sitters make towards a child’s wellbeing in their care is important to us as we compliment parent’s wishes in shaping their child’s development and any specific instructions.

What do we offer?

We provide last minute or pre-arrange babysitters in Dunedin, Wanaka, Queenstown and Christchurch. We also have permanent/temporary nannies on our team to care at a child’s home. We want our parents to feel confident that their children are in the best care possible.

Our Values

Our values are honesty, integrity, professionalism and belonging which we strive to portray throughout Project Nanny.


Kia Ora, my name is Alice and I am the owner of Project Nanny. I have had over 10 years child care experience starting this in the deep end as a live-in Nanny on a dairy farm in the rural Waitaki. This was just the beginning to a new found passion of caring for infants and children. This led me to pursue my love of Nannying locally in my home town of Dunedin. Over the years I gained experience caring for many sets of twins from newborn to toddlers. I met wonderful families along the way and have treasured memories from this time. Understanding the needs and expectations that parents want when hiring a Babysitter or a Nanny is my main priority, so with the knowledge I have gained over the years, I have then integrated into all of Project Nanny’s services.
