Each nanny and educator with Thrive to Five is actively involved in an individualised educational programme and they pride themselves on providing a fun and safe environment for your little ones.

“Sloany really connects with children at their level and has a wealth of knowledge and practical ideas to inspire play and continued growth.  She has a genuine passion for Early Childcare which shows with her interactions with the carers and children alike. I really appreciated Sloany’s calm and practical approach to childcare and benefited hugely from her support.”

Teresa (Waikanae)

“I had the privilege of working alongside Sloany for a couple of years. Sloany was always there to support me in my role, encourage me to improve from an education perspective, provide resources and make sure I was always on track. She was always very easy to talk to and helped me become a better nanny. Sloany is professional in her roles and always strives for the best. She is kind, supportive and I really enjoyed having her as my visiting teacher.”
