After school nanny shares can be brilliant for kids, parents and nannies alike. The kids get to play with a friend, while the parents save money on the cost of the nanny, and the nanny gets paid more per hour. That’s a win-win-win for everyone.

What is an after school nanny share?

After school nanny shares are when the nanny collects children from two families from school. They get looked after in one of the family's home but this can also be rotated. This can be great if you like the idea of your kids having friends to play with after school but want them to be in a home environment rather than an after school club.

How much does an after school nanny share cost?

An after school nanny share is also more affordable costing £9 per family (with Koru Kids) rather than £12 per family. The nanny also gets a payrise so it's a great opportunity for them too.

Do the kids have to be at the same school?

For an after school nanny share to work, usually the children involved all need to be at the same school so that the nanny can pick them all up at once.  The kids need to get on with each other, and the families’ schedules need to be broadly compatible i.e. It won't work if all the kids have different activities in different places on different days.
