Programme Fees

Hiring an au pair is more affordable than you think. It works especially well for families with multiple children because the au pair cost-model is per hour and not per child. Once we've found your family's perfect match, we enrol you in a programme and organise your au pair to arrive in New Zealand on your desired start date.

The table below details our programme fees and any other au pair related costs.
