Current Advice During COVID-19

The Government advice allows nannies to work in a family home during the national lockdown, as long as neither household has someone with symptoms of COVID-19, has tested positive or has been contacted by NHS Track & Trace. This guidance was issued on 4th January 2021. More details here.

Outstanding part-time nannies available immediately for long and short-term roles

Can a nanny still work in my home?

Part-time nannies - help when you need it

We have trained and vetted nannies available immediately in London for short term contracts as well as longer-term roles. If you’ve found that your childcare plans have fallen through or are working from home for the foreseeable future and need a few weeks or months of cover, we have Koru Kids nannies available near you now.

A part-time nanny is also a COVID-friendly choice. Our nannies live locally, complete COVID-19 training and are constantly supported to stay COVID-safe. When you search for a nanny with us, we'll only show you nannies who live within walking or cycling distance of your home.

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

Don’t take our word for it

Looking for a nanny for your baby or toddler?

Most Koru Kids nannies have experience with children age 3+. However, many are happy to look after younger kids while their parents are at home.

It's free to browse our nannies so you can see if they are right for you.

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.
