An Au Pair is a young adult (generally between 18 – 29 years old) who comes to Australia from another country to live as an extended member of a family and to help them with light household duties and quality childcare.
Au Pairs would normally provide 20 – 40 hours per week of quality childcare, light domestic duties and some babysitting in exchange for full board, meals included and a weekly allowance of usually $180 – $250 per week depending on how many hours you require. The Au Pair would also be provided with her/his own private bedroom.
An Au Pair will have childcare experience and Au Pair Connections Australia and our international partner agencies make sure the Au Pairs have childcare, police and medical checks and are interviewed on a one on one basis. All of these checks and a personal profile of the Au Pair are provided to the interested host family before being connected and placed.
