What Au Pairs do?: Welcome

AU PAIR ROLE BY AGE OF KIDS

AU PAIR CARING FOR BABY


An Au Pair can be a great ‘extra pair of hands’ with a newborn baby or baby up to 12 months, helping alongside a parent. If you have a baby as well as a toddler, your Au Pair can entertain an adventurous toddler, giving you time to focus on the baby. Sole care for children under 12 months is not part of the Au Pair program.



AU PAIR CARING FOR TODDLER


For this age group, parents often choose to have the little one in daycare 2-3 days a week and combine daycare with one-on-one Au Pair care for the other days. 

  • Dressing or helping to dress children before daycare, playgroup or pre-school

  • Nappy changing or potty training

  • Care for and play with child/children at home

  • Take child/children to the park or playground, play dates, play groups, swimming pool and other fun activities to interact with other little ones


AU PAIR CARING FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILD


Au Pairs absolutely love this age group! 

  • Getting kids ready in the morning

  • School uniform care 

  • School run and driving to/from activities

  • Homework help & readers. 

  • Interesting & active after school care, ranging from sports to arts, craft and baking


AU PAIR CARING FOR TEENAGERS

Teenage years are difficult…. A big sister (or brother) can make all the difference!!

  • School uniform care 

  • School run and driving to/from activities

  • Homework help & tutoring, researching projects. 

  • Being a young adult friend and role model


NOTE


Au Pairs are not cleaners! 

Keep your regular cleaner for the ‘big stuff’ and get your Au Pair to help with daily tidy/cleaning after meals and keeping on top of kids laundry.
