Need quality, short-term childcare in a hurry?  Our Au Pair Assist programme is designed for families looking to fill an au pair position quickly and save you from pulling your hair out trying to find last-minute childcare options. 

Au Pair Assist candidates are often already in New Zealand, giving you the opportunity to meet them in person and talk about how they can fit into your family life. With support from your Programme Manager (all qualified ECE teachers), an Au Pair Assist is there to make sure your little treasure’s personality and interests flourish as they discover their world on our early learning programme.

We do our best to make the application and matching process as simple and stress-free as possible. After all, that’s what having an au pair is all about!  Still, because we want to make sure you have the best experience with us, there are a few things we need from you as part of the application process:

  • A complete online application
  • A quick chat with one of our lovely Placement Managers
  • A quick meeting with one of our team in your home (including a health & safety check)
  • Police check forms for all adults in the home (we will process these for you).
  • Child enrolment forms – each child under the age of five must be enrolled in our early childhood education programme for a minimum of 30 hours per week, including a whole day or two half days where your au pair is caring for your child.  Please note, if you have more than one child under the age of five, there may be some flexibility here!
