Is this the Program for me?

The Sistering in Sydney Program runs alongside our Au Pair program (Nannies from overseas) and is open to young people from all over Australia with a real interest in caring for children and a commitment to embark on a personal journey of self-discovery, including:

  • The opportunity to gain extensive childcare experience – perfect for those who envisage a career in childcare or teaching.
  • Something really cool – The Smart Sistering Program also opens the door for you to travel the world being an Au Pair or Nanny in the USA, UK or Europe after completing the program in Sydney (we can help to make this happen for you really easily).
  • The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live with a Sydney family, improve your life skills and make friends with au pairs from all over the world.

The Sistering in Sydney Program is one of the most complete programs in Australia.

What you Will Personally Get from the Program

The Sistering Program allows each individual to experience the true essence of self-development, applied in an adventurous and fun context. Host families foster a learning environment in which Sisters can put childcare skills into practice in their daily lives, be responsible and have fun at the same time.

Responsibility for others

Guide children through their daily routines safely and effectively. Find your inner strength and manage challenges with confidence.


The ability to fit in and be ‘part of a team’, adapt when needed whilst staying true to yourself in the process.


This program goes beyond being ‘just’ a job, there will be moments, where the experience is tough and challenging.

Intelligent planning and development

Learning about the routines of busy families within the structure of a program teaches Sisters to assume responsibility. Host families who are part of our program possess deep knowledge and understanding, and their compassion and love for hosting means that they truly welcome you into their family.

Together Sisters and host families create a family environment for learning and transformation: a community of like-minded Sisters plus au pairs from around the world that support one another in living our true potential! Our host families are truly unique and all Sisters will feel supported and accepted from the moment they begin their new journey.
