How you can become a Host Family with Au Pair Care Australia
Register or Enquire: Enquire or register via our website. All of our enquiries are strictly confidential. A member of our team will be in contact with you to discuss the needs of you and your family.
Consultation: If the application and interview process is successful, you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of $150.00. This payment will then allow the team at Au Pair Care Australia to begin the process of finding a suitable Au Pair through our screening and matching process, with the intent of being able to introduce you to someone to share this cultural experience with.
Screening and Matching process: During a thorough interview with one of our team members, we will establish a more holistic understanding of your family’s needs and requirements. Based on your requirements during the registration/interview process, you will be provided with potential Au Pair profiles for your consideration. The selection is usually based on common interests between the Host Family and the Au Pair and who are looking for similar cultural experiences.
Interview / Introduction: This now gives you an opportunity to interview any of the Au Pairs that you have selected to learn more about. An interview can be via telephone, skype, facetime or simply meeting for a coffee in person at a local cafe.
This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding the cultural experience and to also inform the Au Pair about what maybe required of them.
An invitation to your chosen Au Pair: Once you have selected and interviewed an Au Pair that you feel will compliment your family, your next step would be to formally extend an invitation to your chosen Au Pair to join your family for a wonderful cultural experience in Australia.
Support: For your reassurance, our team is available to provide ongoing support and guidance to ensure this experience is an enriching and rewarding one for your whole family.
Over the past 5 years my husband and I have been lucky enough to have 8 Au Pairs, from Germany, Italy and the UK. By having the Au Pairs living in our home has given us the flexibility to work in our corporate jobs with lots of travelling and social activity. We have found that all of our Au Pairs that we have had have been amazing, our twin boys have always built such an amazing bond with them and it is a sad farewell but knowing we have made life time friendships with them.

We have loved our Au Pair experience, it has allowed our family to have an extra set of hands in a very busy home! Our Au Pairs are the core of the household ensuring that the children are at their activities after school and making sure that they are always fed and watered which is important to 9 year olds and to us.

To go to Australia as an Au Pair was the best decision of my life! I met my lovely host family with two gorgeous twin-boys. The first time I met them, I felt so welcome and familiar right away, and all my worries were gone. It was my job to look out for them before and after school.
We all did a lot of great things together like going to the beach, to the park or to the zoo. Every time, we had lots of fun, a lot to laugh about, and I was part of this awesome family.
Being an Au Pair in Australia was an incredible adventure and a great lifetime experience. I got to know a different country, culture and people and learnt a lot about myself while finding a second family and home.

Benefits of an Au Pair
Live in childcare that offers flexibility at an affordable rate. No more worrying about picking up your children by a certain time when a work meeting runs late.
Your children will always feel secure knowing who is looking after them and the ratio is based solely of the size of your family.
The cost of an Au Pair is affordable as the cost is per family not per child.
You set the schedule for your Au Pair. Every family is different and we understand this. Therefore, through consultation with your Au Pair, you can come up with a schedule that compliments you and your family’s needs.
All of our Au Pairs will be given an information pack to assist them with the smooth transition into your home.
Bringing two wonderful cultures together will enhance and enrich both your family and the Au Pair’s experiences.
