Whether you need regular after school help, or are headed out for an evening with your friends, Kowalah has your back.
During term time Kowalah provides your children with after school support and entertainment in your own home throughout your working week, helping with school pick-ups, homework, and an evening meal, awaiting your return from work.
During holiday time our Kowalahs provide full day support while you are at work - entertaining the children at home or taking them to local activities.
Kowalah also provides short notice on demand childcare and babysitting for those one-off requirements - an evening out, or help with a children's party. Last minute invite arrived? No problem!
Our Kowalahs have joined families on holidays, attended parties and weddings, stayed overnight or for weekends - so whatever your childcare requirement we're glad to help.
How it works
open the kowalah app and launch your booking request. Enter the date and time for your booking, the age and number of children and confirm your location - then let Kowalah get to work and notify local sitters in real-time!
15 minutes later Review the profiles of the kowalahs that have accepted your booking request. Look at their photo, read reviews from other parents and make your choice!
your chosen kowalah will call you to introduce themselves, confirm your location and any special requests for the booking - cooking an evening meal or a school drop-off perhaps.
your kowalah will arrive on time, start their timer and get to work, freeing you up for your day's work, or your well earned evening out. at the end of the booking your kowalah will stop their timer and you'll automatically be charged - no need to visit the cash machine!
Safety at Kowalah
All Kowalahs go through a telephone interview during which we get to know about their previous childcare experience, and confirm details of their location and ability to get to and from bookings independently.
Every Kowalah provides us with two references that we contact independently to receive a written recommendation of previous childcare or babysitting experience.
Whenever a Kowalah completes a booking parents are asked for a review. You can read all previous reviews prior to making a booking to help you make the right choice.

Want to learn more?
While Kowalah is only available on Apple devices today, if you live in one of our supported areas you can still benefit from the Kowalah service via our Concierge service.
Simply click the button below, let us know the details of your booking request and we'll run the search on your behalf - letting you know which Kowalah we've chosen for you.
Do you run a hotel and have guests requesting childcare during their stay? Perhaps they need daytime support during a wedding, or an extra pair of eyes while they are dining in your restaurant?
Let us know your guests requirements via our Hotel booking form below and we'll run a booking request and choose on their behalf. We can either charge your guest direct, or invoice you to add to their room bill.
Do you run a self-catering holiday network, or own just one or two properties you rent out to guests? Give your guests easy access to on demand childcare during their stay so they can truly relax and enjoy their time with you.
Provide your guests with our self-catering booking form (or ask them to download the Kowalah app) and we'll ensure they are well looked after.
