Make a lasting difference to the lives of children on our most popular programme - Au Pair 123! You'll care for at least one child under the age of five, helping them to learn and grow in their own way. We link you with your own early childhood education teacher to guide you through the programme as well as organise weekly playgroups, educational and fun outings, childcare workshops… and much more! No worries about planning activities throughout the day - our programme ensures that the children are having fun in your care, and learning at the same time!

What does it cost?

We have flexible pricing options to help make becoming an au pair in New Zealand as easy as possible for you.  You can choose to have us book your flights and insurance for you, or book them with your preferred provider.  You can find a list of programme fees based on our key international departure ports on our Flights, Visas and Insurance page.

If you'd prefer to book your own flights and insurance, then our programme fee becomes a one-off, non-refundable payment of $899 NZD, which covers the screening and matching process, and on-going support during your placement term.
