Filter and search nannies

Easily search, interview & hire

Every child is different. Some days they’re tired. Some days they’re full of energy. The benefit of an after school nanny is that they can adapt to your child’s needs, whether that’s running off energy before bed in the park, or snuggling up and reading on the sofa.

Go online and browse nannies in your area who meet your family’s needs, from here you can message and arrange interviews and trials, and we take care of the rest.

Hassle-free payments

All-in pricing and no admin headache

We do simple, all-in pricing from £14 an hour.

The rates on our nanny profiles include tax, admin fees and any other extras. We don’t believe in finder’s fees.

We make sure your nanny’s employment is all above board with none of the admin hassle on you. You pay a one-off £99 employer setup fee towards this.

Our app allows you to seamlessly approve shifts and expenses.

Ongoing support

Why having a part-time 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 fingers

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.

Join the childcare revolution

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.
Our nannies cost £14-£19 per hour, per family, depending on your nanny’s childcare experience and the number of hours of care you need. We don’t have any finder’s fees and our service fee is included in your hourly rate.
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 if all experiences. Many of our nannies looking for after school shifts only have experience with older children but many others are willing to work longer hours and have experience with babies and younger children. Look out for a run down of their experience on each profile.

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. 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.
Most Koru Kids contracts include a minimum of 9 hours a week, on average, during school term-time. If you hire your nanny for less than 9 hours a week during term-time you’ll pay an additional £1 an hour. We don’t charge finder’s fees and this allows us to give you and your nanny the same level of service and support. You’ll still need to offer at least 3 hours per week and the minimum you agree will be reflected in your nanny’s contract to ensure they have income security.

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.
