Summer holiday and after school nannies - the ‘May’ class

These nannies have now done their paediatric first aid training, they’ve learned how to help with homework, about safeguarding, risk assessments (etc., etc.,)… they’ve thought of lots of fun stuff to do with kids after school and during the school holidays….

And they are RARING to go!

We had a great day today training up 15 after school nannies at our offices near Euston in London.

The Koru Kids nannies can help with school pickups during the school term, and can also help out with full days in the school holidays.
