What else is included?

There's a few extra things we do that make us stand out from the rest. We are really 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.

Get Involved

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!


You need to know what’s included, what’s not and the process involved. That’s why we are upfront and honest about our programme and will outline exactly where your money goes.
