Current Advice During COVID-19

Government advice continues to allow nannies to work in a family home. More details here.

 

Our pricing

We keep our pricing simple. Just an hourly all-inclusive rate. No upfront fees.

 

Choose a nanny to meet your needs

We validate the experience of our nannies and assign their pay rate accordingly - they don’t set their own rate. This way, you’re comparing like for like.

From June, prices will rise for new customers by 50p per hour. Hire a nanny before then to lock in these lower rates for the rest of the year.

Recognition of your nanny with pay rises - on us

Koru Kids are dedicated to paying our nannies fairly, and recognising their service and ongoing development. This is reflected in our pay progressions.

After 6 months of working with Koru Kids, your nanny gets a 50p pay rise. They'll get another 50p per hour after 12 months of nannying. We do this by reducing our cut of the service fee - so there’s no extra cost for you.

 

Where your money goes

Paying your nanny

The amount your nanny receives including their holiday pay and pay rises over time - all included in a single hourly cost.

Finding your nanny

All our nannies pass strict vetting. This includes ID checks, references and passing our Koru Kids training course. All the nannies you see on our site have been through hours of checks by our nanny recruitment team. We also include an enhanced DBS and online first aid course when you agree to hire a nanny, as well as covering the cost of Public Liability Insurance.

Handling your employer obligations

Does becoming an employer sound like admin? Not with Koru Kids. We take care of contracts, payroll and other legal obligations on your behalf. If required, we’ll make sure you’re set up with HMRC, and pay National Insurance and pension contributions at no extra cost.

Ongoing support

We have a dedicated team to help your nanny succeed in their new role. We offer top-up training, 1:1 coaching, access to a best-in-class activity bank, plus lots of helpful features via our app.

20% of the Koru Kids service fee covers VAT.

 

Can I share a nanny with another family?

Yes! Our nannies can look after children from two families at the same time. It’s a brilliant option if you’d like your children to benefit from a play mate while still getting all the benefits of a nanny. Plus, it’s just £9 per hour, per family and the nanny gets a pay-rise too. Find out more.

Flexibility for your family, reliable income for your nanny

We know families need different amounts of childcare. We balance this with making sure our nannies can rely on their income. We don’t allow our nannies to have zero hour contracts, so when you hire your nanny you'll need to commit to a number of regular hours.

If you hire a nanny for less than 9 hours a week during term-time, you’ll pay an additional £1 an hour and you’ll still need to offer at least 3 hours per week. We don’t charge one-off or upfront fees and this allows us to give you and your nanny the same level of service and support. See full details of our minimum hour policy here.
