Become an after school nanny and you can nurture the children of a family in your local area and help solve London’s childcare shortage

Work that fits your life
With families across London looking for help we can match you with someone close to home needing hours that suit you

Top up your income
We pay £9.20 p/h (if you're over 25) so helping a local family for a few hours a week is a great way to earn some extra income

Help the entire family
Having a great solution to after school childcare not only helps the children develop, but lowers the stress working parents face

Local families are looking for help

Thousands of London families are looking for local people from the community to help look after their children after school. Collecting the kids from school around 3pm, you’ll take them back to their house to play with them and help with homework until the parents can make it home from work.

Free training

We have built a free online training course to learn about how being a Koru Kids nanny works, and we offer a free first-aid session too

Join a real community
Not only will you be helping the family you work with, but you'll also be joining our community of over 4,000 after school nannies we've trained

A genuinely fun job
Being an after school nanny isn't child's play, but it might be the closest thing to it. Nothing beats playing games, singing, dancing, and having fun with kids!
