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 We are the only Au Pair Agency which is accredited by Child Wise in Australia. Our policies and procedures ensure the safety and well-being of Au Pairs, Host Families and their children.

HOST FAMILY SCREENING PROCESS So that you know you are going to a safe place, all our host families have to go through a rigorous screening process and meet our child protection and safeguarding policies

AN EXPERIENCED TEAM Our team have either been an Au Pair before or have travelled extensively around Australia. This way, we ensure that we are giving you the best possible customer service and support throughout the entire process.

CONTINUOUS SUPPORT We keep in touch with you throughout your placement during the first few days, weeks, months and even after your placement is finished so that you feel fully supported throughout your time in Australia
