Other frequently asked questions

Once you offer a nanny a job we’ll run an Enhanced DBS check for free. Professional nannies need to have a valid First Aid certificate from an in-person course to work with babies and toddlers. After school nannies need to complete an online paediatric First Aid course.

No – we cover the UK. Most of our nannies live in London, Brighton, Bristol and the home counties.

For the after school service most nannies live locally and most want to travel less than 20 mins to work. For professional nannies they might live further away but may have worked in your local area before.

Childminders look after children from multiple families in their own home. Nannies look after your children in your home (and a maximum of one other family in a nanny share).

Our after school nannies cost from £15.75 per hour which includes the Koru Kids fee. The rate they charge is set by us based on their experience.

Professional nannies set their own rates – on average £16ph (gross) and our fee is 10% of their annual salary + VAT.

Professional nannies usually quote hourly rates. All the rates on our platform are gross. This is their net rate (what they get in their bank each month) plus their income tax and employee National Insurance. You also need to pay for their pension and employer National Insurance which gives you the “total cost”.

Some will yes. It’s best to check with individual nannies but we can support you to employ someone short-term.

Many nannies babysit for their families. However, right now we don’t have a babysitting only service for families who don’t employ nannies.
