An au pair is a young person from abroad employed by a ‘host family’ to care for their children. Au pairs provide a live-in form of childcare and provide a unique cultural and learning experience and exchange. When we think about what an au pair offers a family and vice-versa, it’s hard to simply label the role as ‘childcare’ or ‘kind of like a live-in nanny’ – because it is much more than just a job. An au pair joins a family to bond with the children and provide one-on-one care, love and stability in the place which matters most – your child’s home. In the au pair’s free time, they have the opportunity to explore their surroundings and make most of what we have to offer. Read more…

When you’re starting a job in a new country or recruiting a candidate from abroad, it’s very exciting but at the same time can be risky if you are not careful. Choosing the right au pair agency can help you make decisions and ask the right questions as well as support you during your placement. For that reason, it is very important to us that you receive the best advice you need throughout your processes. Read more…
