Be an Au Pair or Nanny overseas

If you love working with children and want to see the world, being an Au Pair or Nanny overseas is a wonderfully rich way to experience a different culture.

You’ll be treated as a member of the family you live with, grow to love the kids you’ll be caring for, and earn money to travel and sight see in your free time.

We have an enviable list of countries to choose from and our high quality families are carefully screened. Most are repeat families so are well known to us, and they really understand and value the au pair relationship. This means you will have a host family that truly cares about you!

Enquire before the 30th April and save – last opportunity to secure our 2018 program fees! (only payable on your signed agreement with your perfect family)


Do you have any hidden fees and charges? – No. We charge a single placement fee, and only when you are 100% happy with your chosen host family.

Do you charge a deposit?  – No. We do not charge a deposit, in fact, we do not charge any placement fees until you have a signed agreement. (Some of our competitors charge a large non refundable deposit).

Are your program prices expensive? – No. We understand how hard you have worked to save for your trip of a lifetime and we do our very best to keep our prices reasonable. Be sure to compare any competitors prices and products with ours before you book or pay any deposits.

Do you try to “Hard Sell”? – No. – We don’t have to, our products, prices and ethics sell themselves!

Do you guarantee a job before I leave? – Absolutely. You will have your dream family locked in writing before you go.

Do I get to choose a family? – You sure do! You review detailed family profiles and decide if you are interested in proceeding with interviews. We help you at every stage, and keep going until we find you your perfect family match.

Do you provide in-country support?- Absolutely. You will have a dedicated in-country support person, as well as our Australia-based team, available to you 24/7 until the end of your placement. We are all there to answer any questions or help solve any problems.
