You might be wondering...

A nanny share is when a nanny works for two families, caring for children from both families together at the same time. Parents share nannies to give their children someone to play with, to give their nanny a pay rise, and to save on childcare costs.

Yes, typically a nanny will get paid £2-3 per hour more for a nanny share. Nanny share is a great way to give your nanny a pay rise and share the cost with another family.

We have a free tool called the Family Finder which will connect you to other families who want to share. You can also try local Facebook groups and your NCT/Bump and baby network.
Usually, both families’ houses are used for the share.  However, families can agree something different. For example, if one family has a parent working from home they may prefer the share to always be at the other house.

Sometimes one of the families will want to buy a double buggy (e.g. if they expect to have a second child at some point). Alternatively, the costs can be split.  Families are expected to provide nappies, wipes, and formula for their own children if required, and may agree to make a contribution towards food.

We recommend that sick children still get looked after as part of the share. This is a major benefit of nannies over other forms of childcare such as nurseries and childminders, who will send sick children home. Usually children are contagious well before showing symptoms anyway, so they’ve probably already passed it on.  

Each family will be the legal employer for half of the contracted days or hours. 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. 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.
If you’re looking for a nanny for less than 4 weeks, we may be able to help. Most of our nannies are looking for long-term roles but we do have some nannies who would be very keen to help out a family for an interim period such as the summer.
For arrangements that are less than 4 weeks, we do ask that families offer a minimum of 20 hours in total across the full contract. We currently cannot facilitate contracts that are smaller than this.
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.

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.

Nanny sickness is rarely convenient but it’s easier to deal with in a nanny share than in a sole nanny situation. That’s because nanny shares involve two families as backup, so it’s more likely that one of the adults can take a day off and look after the children without it being a total disaster. From a payments perspective, our blog has more information on what happens if your nanny is sick.
