So you’re looking for after school care for your little ones, and we really hope we’re able to help. But there is one thing that makes us sad here at Koru Kids HQ – we can’t provide one of our amazing nannies for every family that comes to us (although we’re trying our best!)

We speak with families every day who are looking for different things from their after school care. We wanted to be upfront and honest, and let you know what makes some families more difficult to match than others.

If your situation changes, please let us know as early as possible so we can find the right matches for you. Drop us a line at

If you need 5 days of care a week…

Although a large number of our nannies are available 5 days a week they are also in the highest demand. We understand that in many cases this just isn’t possible but if you can be flexible and accept 3-4 days a week and mix the nanny with other childcare options you will increase the number of possible nannies you have to choose from.

If you need a driver (with or without their own car)…

As many of our nannies are university students, very few of them can drive and even fewer have their own cars in London. However, they are all happy and confident taking kids on public transport. If a driving nanny is just an added bonus for you (rather than a requirement), do let us know as it may increase the number of nannies we can match you with.

If you have kids younger than 3…

As we’re an after school service, we recruit and train nannies on the basis that they’ll be looking after 3 year olds and above. We appreciate it takes a different skill set to look after younger kids, which not all of our nannies have. However, we do have some more experienced nannies who are great with younger kids – they just tend to get snapped up quickly!

If you need morning care…

Most of our nannies aren’t able to do morning drop offs because they usually clash with other commitments and can often be very short shifts. If morning care is a deal breaker for you this will really reduce the chances of us having a nanny for you, but we will still try our best.

If you need a specific language…

We have many international nannies who can speak a wide variety of languages. However, if you need a specific language this will shrink the pool of available nannies, and make it more difficult to find one who fits your other requirements. Let us know if this is an added bonus rather than a deal breaker as we may have more options for you if this is the case.

We’re doing all we can to make sure we can match as many families with Koru Kids nannies as possible. We’ll always try and send you  nannies that perfectly match your requirements but where this isn’t possible let us know if you’re able to be flexible on any of your requirements and we’ll send you the next best options.

If you ever want to speak with one of the matchers about maximising your chance of finding a Koru Kids nanny, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 020 8050 5678.
