The Hessel Group History

Hessel Pty Ltd commenced operation in 1998 under the trading name of nannySA to service families with professional and caring staff for their child care needs.

Our Staff and Management are focused on providing a professional caring service, where communication and integrity are vital. We are dedicated to caring for children and truly believe in our motto that “Children Are Really Everything”.

Operating 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, we provide a complete service to our clients. Over the years nannySA has developed innovative options to assist families with home based care and has become an integral partner to many families and community services by assisting their needs.

In 2003 nannySA became an approved provider to Families and Community Services and Indigenous Aboriginals (FACSIA), now DEEWR. We have increased our services to now be the largest approved in-home care provider in South Australia. In 2005, we were successful in providing emergency care to children who are under the guardianship of the minister.

Our Companies

Our services include Nannies Part Time and Full Time, Before and After School Care, Mother’s Help, Babysitters, Emergency Care and Mobile Crèche – Functions and Corporate.

We have been registered with the Department of Children’s Services and Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

Enchance Training logo

In 2007 to further enhance the services for both our clients and our team of dedicated carers, Enhance Training & Recruitment was launched. This new entity within the Hessel Group specialised in the provision of accredited and non-accredited courses essential for the professional caring of children. In 2011 we successfully became a registered training organisation and now provide a variety of courses to address a range of skills, including Apply 1st Aid, Child Safe Environments, Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services as well as a variety of short courses. In 2012 we were successful in gaining ‘Skills for All’ approved status.

All Care Solutions logo

In 2012 at the annual strategic planning meeting, management identified that the Hessel Group had successfully provided a wide variety of services dedicated to meeting the needs of children for the past 14 years. During this meeting it was proposed that the group expand its services to meet the growing community needs of caring for adults as well as for children.

It was identified that the core strengths of the Hessel Group and the proven robustness of the existing infrastructure would make the expansion into adult care a relatively smooth transition. The new entity of All Care Solutions was registered and a new, exciting opportunity has commenced.

The strategic direction for All Care Solutions is to leverage off our existing core pool of experienced staff to offer community home support services for adults in the Home and Community Care (HACC) sector and the disability sector, as well as the private client.

Hessel International logo

The Hessel Group has expanded internationally with Hessel International.

After visiting China and undertaking research, we identified that our training would benefit families, educators, trainers and other caregivers. Hessel International has developed a universal Early Childhood Education Framework “Walk in a Child’s World”. Walk in Child’s World Courses are based on children in the 0-6 age groups and will support families and educators with the tools to build their children’s confidence, wellbeing and practical life skills.

Our philosophy of ‘children are our future’ are notably communicated in the Chinese Community.

New International Offices in Shanghai

Hessel international has now branched out, with an office based in Songjiang, Shanghai along with our China business partner Howard Xu. Our new team are very focussed on establishing our customised Early Learning training packages for Chinese Families and Kindergartens.

Green Shoes logo

In 2010 a new service was added to the group is the form of an entity called ‘Green Shoes’. Once again the company responded to the market, where it had been established that a mobile ‘special event’ crèche would assist both corporate and community clients. The concept of providing tailor made crèche services that would suit any event, any budget, anywhere, from simple babysitting to providing specific age and gender activities, was new and exciting. We liaise with event and function coordinators leaving our clients to focus on the finer details of their event.
