    You might be wondering...

    Once you’ve decided to hire one of our nannies, we’ll carry out an enhanced DBS check and invite them to attend our online Paediatric First Aid training course at no extra cost.

    We include all the costs associated with hiring a nanny in the hourly rate you see on the platform. This is the nanny’s pay, taxes, your employer taxes and pension. We also include our service fee in the hourly rate so there isn’t a big upfront cost like with other agencies.

    The first time you hire a nanny with us there is also a £129 set-up fee.

    We’ll show you nannies that live close to you first so their travel time is reasonable for a shorter shift and their reliability can be assured. If you are looking for longer hours nannies are willing to travel further for more hours, so you should have plenty of choice of nannies with the experience you’re looking for.
    Yes! When you decide to hire a nanny, it will be the same nanny working with your family on your agreed days and times.

    Some can, but the lots can’t. If your nanny can drive it will be marked on their profile.

    All of our nannies speak fluent English. For most, it’s their first language, but many speak other languages as well. Our nannies come from a range of backgrounds, so just let us know on the registration form if you have any language requirements and we’ll do our best to send you nannies who speak that language. If it’s a bonus rather than a deal breaker, the number of potential nannies we can show you really increases.

    We have a range of nannies of all experiences. Many of our nannies looking for after school shifts only have experience with older children. We also have professional nannies vetted specifically for their baby and toddler experience – look out for the ‘Top Tier’ nannies. 

    All our nannies must pass our bespoke online training and Paediatric First Aid course before they start working. This has been developed by our in-house training team (made up of a former teacher and former nanny).
    As you will be the legal employer of your nanny, the contract exists between you and them. Koru Kids will write the contract for you so you don’t need to worry. When we set up your contract, we will ask you to complete our set-up form which will ask for some preferences. We’ll then send out a draft version of your contract for you to review.
    Our standard nanny contracts have a 2 week probation period with 24 hours notice. We can also set up short-term contracts if you don’t need a nanny on an on-going basis.
     
    After the probation period, the notice period is 2 weeks.
    You can also choose to have an initial trial shift before offering the role to a nanny. If you do need to bring the contract to an end, you simply need to provide your nanny with the agreed notice period. We’ll be there to support you with all the next steps to ensure your contract is finalised.
    For regular contracts the minimum number of hours a week is 3.
     
    For a short-term contract the minimum hours for the whole contract is 20 hours.
     
    If you need a nanny for less than 9 hours each week, an additional £1 surcharge will apply. This is to ensure we can provide the same level of service throughout the period of your contract.

    Yes! We are currently expanding to other parts of the UK. When you register with us we’ll instantly tell you if we have nannies available in your area.

    You may be able to pay using childcare vouchers or tax-free childcare, provided your nanny is Ofsted registered. Please note, the vast majority of nannies will not be registered with Ofsted due to the part-time nature of the role. The cost and time to register usually outweighs the savings parents could make by using childcare vouchers or tax-free childcare.

    Nannies will look after your children in your home vs. a childminder who works in their home. 

    Nannies typically work for one family or two if it’s a nanny share. A childminder will look after children from multiple families.
