While we always recommend using an accredited agency to find your au pair, we understand that sometimes the perfect match simply makes itself!  If this is the case for your family, we’d love to support you throughout your placement term. Our Au Pair Private Support programme means your family can benefit from au pair based early childhood education. 


We can offer you quality educational support from one of our Programme Managers (all qualified ECE teachers), as well access to our local playgroups, activities and events, childcare training for your au pair or nanny, 20 Hours ECE and WINZ subsidises – and much more! And, it’s totally free!


  • Around-the-clock support from our Programme Managers (ECE teachers)
  • Access to our orientation course and child first aid training
  • Join our local weekly playgroups, educational activities and events
  • Personalised educational resources for your child’s current interests
  • 20 Hours ECE and WINZ subsidies available
Enrolling your children in our programme is easy!  We’ll filter the information from your online profile into our Child Enrolment Form.  To do this, simply login and complete the first section of your application (Initial Application), as well as the Children’s Details section.  From there, we’ll need you to print and sign your Child Enrolment Forms and send them back to us. You can find these pre-filled forms in your Supporting Documents section of your family profile.

By signing up to our Ministry of Education licenced support programme, we’ll also need to book in a quick meeting in your home. The purpose of this meeting is to give you the opportunity to meet someone locally from Au Pair Link, and to ensure the suitability of the au pair’s room/lodgings.  We will also conduct a Health & Safety check during this meeting. The Introduction and Assessment Meeting will take approximately 45 minutes and is a requirement for all host families.

Once we have got the paperwork sorted out for your family, we will get in touch with the au pair or nanny and then get your family and au pair/nanny matched up on the back end of our system!
