Au pairs available

Popular au pair program, different seasons
The au pair program is incredibly popular, especially among young people and students from Europe. Due to the European academic year, we have a higher availability of au pairs between August and January each year.

Navigating the challenges of the pandemic
Ah, the memories of COVID... we definitely remember! It was a challenging time for us as an au pair agency. With Australia's closed borders, our cultural exchange program came to a halt. But after borders re-opened, we had a long au pair waiting list! There were 100+ au pairs waiting to be placed within Australian families. This demonstrates how popular the program is. We always do our best to select the best au pairs available and make sure they meet your requirements.

Affordable, flexible and educational
The au pair program offers significant advantages over daycare, nannies, and babysitters. One of the key benefits is that the costs remain the same regardless of the number of children being cared for, unlike the "per child" fees associated with other options. Additionally, during school holidays, there is no need to arrange separate vacation care. An au pair can fulfil a variety of tasks, including waking the children up and getting them ready for the day, helping with household chores, preparing meals, assisting with homework, initiating playtime, and helping with bedtime routines. With an au pair, you can enjoy a cost-effective childcare solution that provides personalised care and assistance for your family's specific needs.

If you're ready to open your home to an au pair or if you have any questions about our program, we're here for you. Feel free to get in touch with us, and our dedicated team will support you every step of the way.
