JCR Au Pairs and Nannies helps Australian families secure the best au pairs for their family’s live-in childcare and home help needs.
We also send young Australians to explore the world as live-in au pairs or nannies in many countries, including the UK, USA, Canada, Italy, France, Spain, Germany and New Zealand.
We have committed and passionate host families all over the world that understand and value the cultural exchange au pair relationship.
You are unique. We find out as much as we can about you. What are your circumstances and preferences? What do you hope to get out of the au pair relationship? Any concerns? What does cultural exchange mean to you?
If you are going overseas to be an au pair – do you love the outdoors? Prefer the bustle of a city or a the quieter pace of a friendly town? Want to stand on top of the Empire State Building? Dreaming of a white Christmas?
Only by asking lots of questions can we build your complete profile and find you the best au pair or host family.
We are different to other agencies in that we take time to really understand your requirements, and are always available to answer your questions (none are too small) and offer guidance and options.
Being an international au pair or hosting an au pair isn’t right for everyone. We provide you with the information and expertise you need to make an informed decision at every step.
I am Avon Baraiolo program director for JCR Au Pairs and Nannies.
I am a great believer in cultural exchanges, it can be a wonderful reciprocal arrangement with many benefits for all parties involved. I have actually been on both sides of the cultural exchange arrangement – in my youth I had the opportunity to do an agricultural exchange for 9 months in Canada and as my own children were growing up we were involved as a host family with exchange students. I have also coached and managed both junior and Senior Equestrian teams nationally and internationally and am the mother of 2 wonderful daughters now in their early 20s, both independent and well-travelled.
JCR has 2 wonderful staff members, an inbound and an outbound co-ordinator, both ladies have their own families, one has teenage children and the other has a younger child.
So, between us we have a good grasp of the varied Au Pair and host family situations.
Being an au pair overseas or hosting an au pair can seem daunting at first. It need not be. Hopefully this website will help answer some of your initial questions.
I only have one goal and that is to make your au pair experience the most amazing it can be. It is the reason JCR Au Pairs and Nannies was created: to create lasting memories from amazing cultural exchanges.
If you have more questions, drop us a line – we’re always happy to help.
