Supporting our nannies

Supporting you, so you can support little ones

As well as the support we provide through your application process and when matching with a family, we provide loads of tips, resources and general advice while you’re working too.

We believe supporting childrens wellbeing is so important for their development, and as an adult in their lives, it’s really important that you feel supported with your wellbeing too. 

Training and development

As well as the Koru Kids training you’ll complete before matching with a family, you’ll have access to a range of free CACHE and NCFE accredited training courses and a video series from our training specialists.

Activites and resources

We have an amazing bank of activities to enjoy with the kids you’re looking after, as well as our great AI activity generator called ‘Poppin’.

Supporting well-being

In order to create mini-humans, it’s really important to support children’s emotional well-being. We’ve put together resources that you’ll be able to use to help the kids you care for and you.
