FAQs - Au Pair for my family

I have a child under two years of age. What ages can an au pair help with?

An au pair is fantastic as an extra pair of hands when mum has a baby, especially if there are also older children, there is no upper age limit as long as the Au Pair is happy to care for older children.

The au pair can take the older children out to play, giving mum time to concentrate on the baby.

We do not allow long hours of sole care for children under two (2) years of age except from the few au pairs occasionally that have sufficient experience with this age.

Generally, the ‘average’ au pair is not experienced enough and this is too much responsibility without a parent to supervise and/or assist during the day.
