Kowalah makes it easy for parents to find and pay for quality local childcare at a moment's notice.
Sign up to Kowalah at www.kowalah.com and click Sign Up at the top of the screen.
Signing up takes two minutes - we'll ask for:
- Your name
- Your postal address
- Your email address
- Your phone number
One of our team will verify that you are in an area we support and will then activate your account. You will receive an email with your login details.
And now you are ready to find a Kowalah.
Kowalah is easy to follow -
- initiate a Booking Request
- add in your children including ages and any special needs "Bed time at 8pm please!"
- confirm the date and time you need your Kowalah
- confirm how long you expect to be out
- and start the search
In real time we'll notify local Kowalahs and ask them to confirm whether they are available at the requested time.
Grab a cup of tea (or a G&T), relax and hit refresh.
When the first Kowalah accepts we will notify you that you can now make your selection - you can also wait and watch other Kowalahs accept.
- Open Kowalah go to your Booking Requests and click View Responses
- In the Waiting Room click refresh to see how many have accepted
- When ready click Choose My Kowalah to go and swipe through the Kowalahs that have confirmed their availability

Your Kowalah will telephone you within 24 hours to introduce themselves, confirm your location and answer any questions you might have about them.
On the day or night there's no need to worry about the dash to the cash machine:
- Your Kowalah will arrive and tap their Kowalah app to start the timer
- When you return home your Kowalah will tap to stop the timer and your card will be automatically be charged
- You will receive an automatic receipt by email to confirm your payment
No awkward conversations about money and your Kowalah can be on their way in minutes leaving you in peace.
All you need to worry about is what time your kids will wake up in the morning!
