This help centre article has been written for the Koru Kids nanny service for families who are thinking of hiring a nanny

We carefully vet all of our nanny applicants and less than 10% make it through. We collect at least two detailed references for each candidate, check their ID documents, and ask them to complete a health declaration. Read more about the process here.
If you would like to hire a nanny, and view their references beforehand, please get in touch with us here to request to see these.

Once you have decided to hire one of our nannies, Koru Kids will carry out an enhanced DBS check for them*. Find important information about the DBS check process here.

At this stage, we will also invite your nanny to attend our Paediatric First Aid training course - you can read more about what is covered in first aid training here.

Your nanny must also complete our in-depth online training course created by our team of qualified teachers and former nannies.

* If at the start of their employment your nanny has already had an enhanced DBS check completed within the previous 12 months, and Koru Kids has verified this is to be valid, they will not require a new check to be completed
