What is an Au Pair?

How can an Au Pair enrich and bring flexibility to your family in so many wonderful ways?

The word Au Pair is a French term meaning “on par” or “equal to”. An Au Pair will generally be a male or female aged between 18-30 from a country outside of Australia who wishes to assist in caring for your children whilst gaining the opportunity to experience life in Australia. 

An Au Pair offers live in childcare that's flexible and affordable whilst gaining a cultural experience being part of an Australian family that is beneficial to not only the Au Pair but also to the family.

The safety of both our Families and our Au Pairs are extremely important to us at Au Pair Care Australia, as we want you to feel as confident and secure as you can going into your placement.

We have information booklets designed for both the family and the Au Pair with tips and resources to assist in the smooth transition into Australia and the family home (contact us here to receive yours). We offer social meet & greet opportunities with our Au Pairs.


Bringing two wonderful cultures together to enhance and enrich both the family and the Au Pair’s experiences, is our focus and the team at Au Pair Care Australia will be there to guide and assist throughout.

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


  • 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.

The team at Au Pair Care Australia will take the hard work out of sourcing an Au Pair for your family. Our team will guide you through the process of introducing you to a suitable candidate.​​
