Becoming a childminder: control your own time, make a great income, and impact the future of children

Just like Rachel said, there are so many reasons becoming a childminder with Koru Kids is a great decision. You will be able to:

  • Work from home. You cut out lengthy commutes and traffic jams; cut down on your carbon footprint; and gain control over your own ‘office’
  • If you have children of your own, you can look after them at the same time! Not a lot of jobs let you spend time with your own children while you’re working
  • Shape the future of the children in their care. Development during the first five years are absolutely vital for a child’s entire life
  • Earn more than you might think. Depending on how many days you work and if you take on an assistant, childminders in inner London can earn up to £70,000 per year with Koru Kids
