Nannies make New York parenting joyful

The city is intense, but nannies bring calm

Nannies work in your home providing personalized care for your children. 

Your children can build a special bond with one person.

And having a nanny gives your children more flexibility to do the things they love, whether that’s swimming lessons or just a timely pick up from school.

Why having an after school nanny is the best decision for your family


Being a working parent is one big juggling act – it often feels like the wheels are going to fall off the bus any minute. Getting a nanny brings the calm and equilibrium your whole family craves.

Focus on work, not fish tacos

You can give your job 100% until the very end of the working day; knowing your children are safely collected, their homework is done, they’ve relaxed in the sanctuary of their own home (minus the screen time) and had a home cooked meal.

Quality evenings

When you take over, the to-do list is done. Children have decompressed with a bit of distance from school. Now it’s simply quality time, a chance to connect and then tuck them off to dreamland.

Mental health investment 

Koru Kids families tell us time and time again that their nanny is a priceless mental health investment for the whole family. Kids are happier and calmer. And parents, having the space to breathe can bring their best selves to parenting.

Don't just take our word for it
