We want to make sure you’re paid correctly based on your childcare experience. If you’re already a Koru Kids nanny but don’t think your pay is right, please let us know so we can adjust your pay.
Families need different amounts of childcare and we try to support this as much as possible. We balance this with making sure our nannies can rely on their income. We don’t allow zero hour contracts, so when you agree to work with a family they’ll commit to paying you for a regular number of hours each week during term time.

You’ll also be able to do a trial shift with the family before you accept the job.
Nannies typically only look after one families children (or in a nanny share two families children). Nannies work in the children’s home whereas childminders work in their own home looking after children from different families. You can find more information on childminding here.
