What is an au pair?

An au pair is a young person, typically from a foreign country, who lives with a host family and provides childcare assistance in exchange for room, board, and a cultural exchange experience.

This arrangement allows families to benefit from flexible and personalized childcare while also providing an opportunity for the au pair to experience the Australian lifestyle and improve their language skills.

Au pairs often help with tasks related to child care, such as babysitting and light household duties, and they may also attend language classes or engage in cultural activities during their stay. The arrangement is designed to foster a cultural exchange and provide the au pair with the opportunity to experience life in a different country.

Flexible and Affordable Childcare

An au pair is a live-in caregiver, who provides personalized care. Welcoming an au pair into your household presents a flexible and affordable childcare alternative, coupled with the added advantage of cultural exchange. Au pairs are integrated into the family unit, allowing them the chance to immerse themselves in the Australian way of life and enhance their language proficiency. As a host family, you provide full board and pocket money, receiving in return childcare and household assistance. Typically, our au pairs contribute around 25 to 35 hours per week.

Our au pairs undergo a meticulous screening process conducted by our international partners. This comprehensive evaluation involves English proficiency tests, reference verifications, medical assessments, and the submission of references, an introductory letter, and accompanying pictures to ensure the selection of the most suitable au pair for your family. Additionally, a majority of our au pairs hold a driver’s license, offering assistance with school runs, homework, after-school activities, mealtimes, and light housework.

Hosting an au pair in Sydney not only provides reliable and dedicated childcare support but also exposes your children to new cultures and perspectives. The presence of an au pair injects excitement, learning, and growth into your household, cultivating a global mindset and broadening the horizons of everyone involved.
