Our Programmes

At Au Pair Link we understand that every family has unique childcare needs. Whether you have infant or school age children, require full or part time care, work 8am to 5pm or shift hours – we have a tailored childcare programme that will meet your family’s needs. We offer four distinct and flexible Au Pair programmes:

Au Pair 123

Au Pair Whiz

Our professional, qualified Au Pair programme for families with at least 1 child under 5.  An Au Pair Whiz has a minimum of 1 year's full time childcare experience with children under the age of 5 or the equivalent of a formal Early Childhood Education degree or diploma and a minimum of 6 months practical experience with children under the age of 5.
