AU PAIR

Au pairs are experienced or qualified childcare providers and range in age from 18 years old up to retirement. The amount paid and benefits received as an au pair vary depending on the requirements of the family that you work for. An au pair can either live with the host family, or use their own accommodation and work on a part time basis. They generally assist parents in taking care of their children’s needs and requirements. Below is a short list (not exhaustive) of what some of the responsibilities are. Being an au pair takes up quite a bit of time and there are times where it can get quite emotional too. You build up a relationship with the child and the family and often the reward is not only the salary, but it is also about the long lasting friendship, love and happiness that the child and the family bring to your life.
