Care & Support

Providing in-home care and support services is in our DNA. It's how our organisation started, and we continue to provide tailor-made in-home care options. Our dedicated team of in-home educators, nannies and babysitters are here to help with casual or regular services.

Group Training

The Hessel Difference
The Hessel difference is simple - we care. We care about you. We care about the community in which we exist and most importantly, we care to make a difference. This philosophy has been at the heart of our organisation from the beginning, and it remains our core value today. From the moment you contact us, we will take the time to get to know you. We believe this is the only way to truly understand your needs and tailor solutions for you. We keep in touch, whether you are one of our care and support clients or one of our students, to make sure we're doing everything we can for you. We are always here for you. We are not an agency. All of our care & support workers, babysitters and nannies are our employees. We believe that making Hessel Group a great place to work will result in better care for our clients.

Our Journey

Our journey began in 1998 in the Adelaide home of our CEO and Founder, Tanya Cole. Frustrated with the lack of options for quality child care at home for her two young children, she decided to start a nanny agency. Tanya wanted to help other parents by taking away the confusion and difficulty of finding a nanny to care for their children at home. nannySA was born.

As Tanya helped more families with child care arrangements at home, she began to uncover more needs. She felt compelled to expand the service offering to continue to support as many South Australian families as she could. With the expansion came a name and branding change to Hessel Group which today incorporates; Enhance Training, Hessel GTO, Hessel Children's Centre and Hessel Allied Health and Behavior Support.

We have a team of over 300 staff, including nannies, babysitters, educators, trainers, disability support workers and allied health professionals. Tanya continues to steer the organisation and remains hands-on in the business that she built from the ground up.

In 2022 in readiness for further expansion, Brad Seaman joined Hessel Group as Director/Chief Strategy Officer.

Brad has extensive leadership, consulting and mentoring experience coupled with a passion for positive change and delivering results.

Brad brings a wealth of sector experience where he has delivered and managed services for the past 13 years. He has steered businesses to success and lead teams to operational excellence across a range of portfolios including Education Organisations. He is passionate about building successful and motivated teams and actualising individual potential.

Steering the organisation together, Tanya oversees Operations and Brad oversees Corporate Services.
