I recommend to anyone to go and do it. Do it with no fear, embrace every minute and most importantly enjoy it. The memories you take away with you, the relationships you develop not only with the family but with the friends you meet along the way are amazing and the overall experience is unforgettable. A very special year to remember. Thank you Au Pair Australia for making it an easy, unforgettable experience.Emily S
My favourite thing about being an au pair was the relationship I made with my host family and children. It was always so rewarding when the children were excited to see you, along with those little moments laughing and playing with them”Annalisse
What else is included?
There's a few extra things we do that make us stand out from the rest. We are passionate about the AIFS Au Pair in Australia programme so we like going the extra mile.
SAFEGUARDING & CHILD PROTECTION AIFS is the only Australian Au Pair Agency which is accredited by Child Wise, and we take this role very seriously. We have a number of policies and procedures in place to ensure the safety and well-being of Au Pairs, host families and their children.
HOST FAMILY SCREENING PROCESS - All our host families have to go through a rigorous screening process and must provide references, police checks and understand their responsibilities under a cultural exchange.
AN EXPERIENCED TEAM Our staff have either been an Au Pair or have had many years supporting Au pairs. We know how to support you and ensure that you have the best possible Au Pair experience.
CONTINUOUS SUPPORT We keep in touch with you throughout your placement during the first few days, right through until the end of your placement. It is peace of mind knowing we are just a call away.
An Au Pair is motivated, enthusiastic & loves spending time with children! If this sounds like you then we have just what you’re looking for!
