We’ve been running our hugely successful after school nanny service in London since 2017, so we’ve built up a reputation with parents for being experts in childcare.

  • We have a huge following from families in London, and we feel confident of being able to fill your places because of it.

  • We've got hundreds of high-rated reviews on Google and Trustpilot, plus a glowing Ofsted report.

  • Becoming a Koru Kids childminder will automatically put you one step ahead of the rest as you associate yourself with a well loved, established and respected childcare brand.

We give you value for money.

We offer top-class training.

The training that we offer covers everything from Safe Sleep to Positive Behaviour Management to Guiding Outdoor Learning.

  • We’ve done extensive research into exactly what children need, and what parents are looking for from their childcare. From this we’ve built our bespoke training courses which allow you to become the type of childminder that parents and children love.

  • We’ve worked with Early Years experts, specialists in outdoor learning and child development professionals to develop these courses, so you can trust that what you’re learning is science and research backed.

We do all your admin.

Lots of agencies will do bits and bobs - we do everything.

  • This includes contracts, policies, payroll, paperwork and help with tax returns.

  • We have your back so you can focus on the most important thing - the kids.

We give you access to assistants so you can grow your business.

Childminders struggle to find good assistants and worry about the hassle of being an employer.

  • We take that stress away, giving you access to a large pool of vetted nannies to work with.

  • You let us know your ideal candidate—we provide their background checks, DBS check and training for just £300 (payable in instalments over three months), and then you'll just pay by the hour for the time you need.

  • So, when it’s time to expand your business, you can do so with peace of mind.

We celebrate you growing your business.

  • We think you should be celebrated for growing your business, not penalised. So the more you earn, the less you pay. When you hit over £60k lifetime earnings, you become eligible for a Koru Kids fee reduction from 10% down to 6%.
