Current Advice During COVID-19

Government advice during Tier 2 alert level in London allows nannies to take care of children, including in a nanny share, as long as neither household has someone with symptoms of COVID-19, has tested positive or has been contacted by NHS Track & Trace. More details here.

Can a nanny work in my home under Tier 2 restrictions?

Yes. The Government advice allows nannies to take care of children under every tier. Your nanny should socially distance from anyone they aren't taking care of and shouldn't come to work if either household has someone with symptoms of COVID-19 or should be self-isolating.

You can find more details on how we're keeping families and nannies safe here.



A part-time nanny is the most COVID-friendly choice.

The same nanny everyday, who lives locally, is trained and given continued support to stay COVID-safe.

Whether you need a super-smart student to help with homework, a football fanatic for kickabouts in the park or a star baker who's raised their own family, we think we have the right nanny for you.

Your children will get personal care and attention, giving you the space to work or just breathe!

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.

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.

I've had some bad experiences with childcare before, so I feel so relieved now. Saeda is brilliant and the kids love her. She’s everything I’d hoped for, plus she comes with backup from Koru Kids, which is really important. All of my boxes are ticked... I feel like the nightmare of worry and headache has vanished.

Don’t take our word for it

 

A typical day

Our nannies all have unique talents, skills and interests. So whether your child loves to read, create plays in the front room, work on their next crafting masterpiece or make treasure maps for the park, our nannies are only a few clicks away from the Koru Kids activity library with inspiring activities for different ages. They love sharing their skills with children and helping them develop their talents.

Our active nanny community is always there for a new recipe idea, tips on making homework more fun or sharing tips on activities they've tried.

An example of a weekly activity schedule all our nannies receive via our app.

Looking for a nanny for your baby or toddler?

Most Koru Kids nannies are only really experienced with older kids (4+). However, many are happy to look after younger kids while their parents are at home, and if that's your plan they could be perfect for you. You're welcome to have a look at our nannies and see if there's a good fit in your area.

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.
