Kalendit helps nurseries solve a big problem: covering their shifts effectively without breaking the bank. Its Uber-like model allows nurseries to book temporary staff instantly at a low cost. With 43 000 settings and 110 000 temporary workers to connect, we believe we can take on this $2bn market together.

  • Uber-like instant staffing service for nurseries
  • Endorsed by international nursery group Safari Kid
  • Growing: adding 2 users daily since registration started in Sept
  • 119 bookings processed since November Launch

Idea

UK nurseries heavily rely on temp staff due to high sector turnover and shortage of skilled workers. To fill their shifts, they use old-fashioned phone-based staffing agencies that, we believe, charge nearly double workers' real cost.

Kalendit cuts the middle-man (agencies) and helps nurseries cover their shifts more efficiently while saving them up to 50% on staffing fees.

Our booking platform - website and mobile apps - is now fully-operational.

Over 150 users joined since September and we continue adding about 2 workers daily. We launched the service in November with four nurseries. Since November we have successfully processed 49 bookings..

“We’ve been really impressed and can see that Kalendit has the potential to really disrupt the traditional nursery/agency relationship in an extremely positive way.”, said Safari Kid's head of UK People.

"Kalendit is amazing! It helps me work around my schedule and make great money. It’s all digital and easy to use, much better than agencies.”, said Agnoula Batha, nursery nurse.

Research shows that the UK nursery market was worth £5.3 billion in 2015-16Fundraising will help us hire people and serve 30 nurseries in Year 1. By Year 5, we want to take 45% of London market which equates to1400 nurseries. Large staffing groups hunting for start-ups in niche areas could offer an appealing exit.
